53 days until bow season?  I missed most of last year due to my surgery and I can't stop thinking about this coming early fall bow season.

 

OK, who else is getting the withdrawals from a lack of bowhunting?  And, more importantly, what are you doing about it?  :)

If it will make you feel any better, it's official, the "Really Nice Tree" will be hunted this year.   :up:

Did I mention my chest is taking longer than normal to heal and that you and Matty will have to gut and drag out my deer for another 3 or 4 years?   :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

I miss bow season so much I've been target shooting almost daily since April.

First time ever that I haven't even picked my bow up this close to the seasons. Haven't found a spot to hunt.

Good luck out there Brian you waited a while!

I don't get serious about deer hunting until the last week of October.  I usually spend opening weekend taking students kayaking down the Delaware.   

 

You all can have the hot weather and bugs.  Give me November through January and I'm happy.  :P

I've taken a nice buck or three out of Kinnelon, there are definitely some good bucks running around there.  Best of luck Axiom.   :up:

I think there are more bears running around here than deer.. see them just about every day... Turkeys Galore too...But anyway Morris County Parks opened up Silas Condict Park to Bow hunting. I think this is the first time its ever been open to hunting so there should be some brutes in there..  Got my permit so i'm ready to rumble...>>>--- :elch: -->

I'm getting excited but I won't hunt til October. The 90+ degree days take a little of the excitement away lol.

I don't think its ever been anywhere close to 90 degrees in the morning hours in the month of September.. Well, not in NJ any way.. Its usually pretty cool out.. Now for those of you who like to sit all day, it MAY get a little warm in the afternoon... Who knows.. All I know is come opening day I'll be in the woods 2 hours before sun up and be dragging my "EAB" harvest out of the woods about 1/2 hour before sunrise ..  :drinking: ...After that it becomes "Target buck" time and may do an afternoon hunt in pursuit of ..  :elch:

I recall early fall bow last year on opening day morning in the 50s.....heck, we've hardly had a single day this summer over 90.  But to each his or her own.  I know I'll be out that day just to knock the rust off.
