How many more days for you til deer season?

I live here in Ohio and as of right now we have 65 more days. Opening day is Saturday, September 24th. I have just a little more stand work to do, some camera checking, shooting the bow, and glassing some bean fields. Then, it's just a matter of waiting for opening day. YEAH!!!!!

Well, I have only 44 days...

Well, I have only 44 days... :wink:  Some zones out here in California have already been open for almost 2 weeks.

Gonna throw up a trail camera this weekend.  I am only going to leave it up for a week at a time, because they tend to disappear at an alarming rate.  Luckily I got this one for only $30 online, but it will still pi$$ me off if someone takes it.

I'd put it in a security box, but it's almost not worth it for that little of a cost.

I am down to 64 days. I can't

I am down to 64 days. I can't wait!!!!! We here in Ohio are in the middle of a heat wave right now. I don't know how some of these states with real early season openers and temperatures in the 90's how anyone could sit in a stand in that kind of heat. I have been in a stand when it's been in the 80's and I thought that was pretty miserable. I am having a hard time to even want to go out and check my camera's it's so hot.

Ya, same here in Iowa. It

Ya, same here in Iowa. It actually just started raining today. Starting to cool off a little bit.

My brother went out to check his cameras and found that 1 of 3 cameras that he out was in a  deep ravine and had his other two cameras on field entrances. The one in the ravine was full of pictures and the one on the field entrances have not been used that much. Wonder if the deer are staying down in the ravine were it is cooler. That would be my first opinion.

Here in New Mexico you don't

Here in New Mexico you don't hunt in to many tree stands.  You go to alpine and chase them around so some places are in like high 60's to low 70's
