NY opener.

my season opens may 1st.Its getting close to cruch time im getting antsy.woke up at 5 without the clock today.the gear has been checked and rechecked.calls are working properly all maintance has been preformed.the car is ready..only clitch is its supposed to rain so i got my rain gear and popup teepee blind too.was gonna camp from thurs till sunday (my wedding anniversery) but i got to come back for an unexpected Doctors visit and lawyer meeting.I think im going to have to by some tylonal PM so i can sleep wednesday night.Been watching videos and calling Andrea cant wait for me to leave.I hope everyone who goes gets lucky i packed my camera ,just in case.Happy Hunting to all

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

No bird on the opener..I had a bird respond to my crow calls i set up put out my decoys .about a 1/2 hour later some guy comes walking up.i let em know my spot he said he wanted to hunt ahead of me i said im calling them in from there.all the talking must of spooked the birds cuz that was it .i tried some running around i wound up on top of the moutain by some ski runs.well i got a hot bird he was answering every call.he go within 60yrds but wouldnt come out of the gully he was in .we went back and forth for an hour.i had to move my legs and i think he busted me.i tried to get around him but he went into private [roperty.I saw where he was calling from.In between 2 ski runs was a strip of woods in the middle of that was an open gully.I'll try again on monday.I wound up walking like 6 miles and my body is killing me .bad weather and weekend warriors dont help either.hopefully monday i can get up to the spot and get em early

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
