I've got a few spots all ready to go, but I haven't gotten out yet.  It looks like Saturday should be my first sit, and I plan on being picky for the first few weeks.

In the past few years I have had a good shooter on cam and capitalized early on in September right away........

 

Gonna wait till it gets cooler now like you said because I have nothing on camera that I would want to hang a tag on this early......

 

Plus I would miss out on all of the pre-rut reindeer games lol!

Went out opening day liver hit one. With the Temps so hot I pressed my luck and jumped her. We tried back the next day and found her bloated up like a beached whale. Put myself in the penalty box til last sat2and saw a few just out of range. I have a love hate relationship with the early season. Now I am just waiting for better weather. Gonna try Saturday morning.

I am having a great season so far. I've been out 3 times with my 11 and 13 year old sons. I killed my EAB doe on my second sit.

 

The boys are seeing lots of deer and a few bucks. My 11 year old missed a doe and my 13 year old missed a Y buck. "Deer Fever" I guess. Both clean misses right over the deer's backs.

 

We are having a great time! This is what hunting is all about!!

Shot my EAB on day two.  Had a good look at a bachelor group one night.  Went out a total of 5 times so far on 2 different properties. I'm still looking for freezer meat so if another nice doe comes my way, I won't think twice about putting her down. If a nice buck comes my way, then I'm obviously putting him down too.  I just haven't had a crack at one yet

With all due respect I think I can speak for many of us here. There are places that I will absolutely never shoot a doe until these areas bounce back. Areas that are definitely hurting bad. I understand your concern, trust me. However, there are some areas that are extremely populated still. In my case, one little private piece I was given permission to hunt this past year, there are TONS of does walking around all day long. When I parked at the end of the land owners driveway waiting for him to show me around, I counted 6 including one piebald, in 10 minutes. Other areas you might not see 1 in 10 days. I have faith that many of our hunters, of course not all, have the knowledge to decipher where to take does from and where to let them walk/rebound. Of course this is for another topic/thread, but my findings constantly show there needs to be seperate regulations/limits for private vs public. Good luck to you this season dbuck

Agreed.  I won't pluck a doe out of an area that is decimated, but I won't think twice about shooting 1 or 2 off of some private pieces or less hunted areas where I see boatloads of does walking around every time I hunt

Went out on opening day and passed on a group of does with a 6 pt. fearful of educating them. Second week took a solo doe. Hoping to sit this weekend. Good luck to all.

I'm leaving Tuesday afternoon for a 3 day hunt in the ADK's.  If I get something it will be my first.  I'm excited and anxious.

 

Family is coming up Friday afternoon for the long weekend.  So, regardless, it will be a good trip.  

 

Congrats to all with a successful season so far and good luck to the rest of us.
