    Opening day Gun deer hunt

    Thanksgiving is the opening day for the first Gun deer hunt of the season. It was looking sad for the hunters with all the corn still in the fields. Those that hunt my land will be happy it is being combined right now. This time of year towards the end of the day they come out in the open and dine on the corn the fell to the ground. Easy pickings for a good shot. I wish them luck.
    And to the rest of you I wish you luck on your hunts.

    I have only been once during muzzleloader this year. I am a train wreck this year with gout and injuries. Tennessee gun opens in the morning. I'll be there on my farm but I don't know how long I'll last. It's raining to boot.

    We just finished the first Bow only hunt. Wisconsin runs a bunch of hunting periods. Muzzleloader is another of them

    Rut in this area of Florida is in early October, and general gun season opened first Saturday in November.
    Archery opens in September, followed by black powder, then general gun. Season on deer ends in January.

    @Smitty , does the season start date vary depending what part of the state you hunt in? Wis DNR lists Nov 23 as opening day of gun deer hunting.

    P.S. Just so you don't get shook up if you hear shooting on your property this weekend.

    Will be doing traditional BP/ML rifle from Monday after Turkey day until New Years Eve.

    Lots of acorns this year, apples too but they are getting mushy. Beech nuts were good but long gone.

    I'm a stalker/still hunter, hope for quiet conditions and wet/fresh snow. Rather chase/stalk one 20 miles than sit in a stand. You learn a lot more stalkng them, and it's more fun too.

    I was under the impression rut was nearly in February down there. November here, December Alabama, January in Mobile etc.

    First time since 1973 that I've ever missed an opening day firearm deer season. Bummer but shit happens. Smokepole season is coming up maybe I'll get revenge?

    Not hunting this year lost interest after 45 plus years. It's no fun to just sit in a stand waiting to ambush a animal anymore. Neighbor is taking his young daughter out on my property Saturday morning. Why not allow others enjoy hunting especially the younger kids. Heck I'm not using it.
