I have an idea of 2 spots on where I’ll hunt in NY. But not sure if it will be 10/1, 10/2, or early next week. Depends on weather and other variables. I’ll be hunting CT Friday 9/30 first.

Rare is the Opening Day of archery that I've hunted.  I do have an idea where I'll hunt for my first outing, depending on wind directions of course.   Not sure when I'll get out for the first hunt but am looking forward to it.

Some left shoulder issues have me on edge a bit too, a torn labrum and severe tendinopathy in my long head bicep tendon make shooting quite difficult.  I'm two weeks into some PT and things seem slightly better.

I'm having the same shoulder issues I have a torn labrum in both shoulders and some nerve pain going from my neck and into my hands.  I've been in PT since February I finally have the right shoulder surgery scheduled for 10/27 and the left will get surgery when the right gets better.

I hope you get yours fixed soon and you feel better.

Fairfield County. Wooster Mountain in Ridgefield/Danbury, Bennett's Pond in Ridgefield/Danbury, and then I got into the Aquarion Water hunting program. It's like 7,000 acres throughout the state but I will likely only go to the closeby ones in Newtown, Redding, etc.

I was right about to start a thread just like this until I saw your post :)

I just found my spot tonight, clear deer trails, fresh wet droppings all over the place, acorns everywhere. I'm very very very very excited about this spot and feel I will get one opening weekend.

I walked the management property I will hunt on Day 1 in the PM. Great runs consistent with past years even though I didn't see any fresh acorns...like any, anywhere! Not in the trees still, not on the ground....gonna be tougher if they just slam browse all fall. More buck crap then doe which is odd

Wind stays like they are calling for I may end up on doe patrol off a meadow on stateland opening night.  Morning hunt still in the air it’ll be a shorter sit because I need to get some miles on my boots to find the bedding areas the bucks I’m after have gone.

I am narrowing things down, but still not sure. Might sight down the road from my house on a point that has some good bedding if the wind is right. I just gotta get there before Mr. Right comes back. The afternoon I think I will sit on a field edge where I have seen does pretty consistently,still have to pick a tree.

Ahh, opening day... where will I be.

Oh ya, in Maine, in a church watching my niece get married. 

Yep... this is the second year in a row I have to go to an Oct 1 wedding. 

People are so inconsiderate.

Yessir... Acorns aplenty and about 100/150 yards between bedding and water.

Decent lanes I haven't been able to further trim. Looking forward to Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning sits 

Why no Sat mornin sit?

Are people doing morning sits this early on? I was thinking just use the "catch them going out to feed" afternoon strategy but if someone has a solid morning strategy I am all ears... the wife even wondered/suggested I go out early on Friday... I have learned to not turn down those opportunities lol.

Zero acorns by me and only hunt hardwoods. AM’s are always best for me but I’ll do both

There's been a decent 8 point hanging around my place, but the wind is wrong for opening weekend.  I'll head to the family farm and that neighborhood.  Hunt an old pasture with some apple trees opening morning, just because it's the opener.  Won't hunt mornings again until we get a cold front.  I will head over Friday and scout a little.  Pick out a spot for Saturday PM.  Probably sit an observation stand on Sunday PM.  Spend the rest of the weekend helping my brother with firewood.  He's halfway done with the 14 cord he needs.
