In Bama it always starts the Saturday before Thanksgiving and runs thru the following January 31. This year for the first time in my recollection we are limited to taking three bucks only and the third must have at least four points on one side.

Until this season as long as I can remember it's been one buck per day all season long. Sure gonna be different.

I can't wait for all the posts, the photos and the stories behind them.
Bullets that worked or didn't work.
Did the perfect load performed as
expected or is last years load still the best?

Enjoy your hunting!

Here in the Northern Zone of NY, we opened for Rifle on Oct 20th. I already have a bow doe, and a doe and spike with the muzzleloader in the freezer (filled the wife's tag). Now I am waiting for a mature buck. It was great, as my wife and three year-old son all came out to help recover, field dress, drag and butcher the animals, and share in the backstrap feast! It was the best weekend of hunting that I have ever had on our property.

I used a Matthews LX, Rage two blade, ICS hunters for the bow-kill

T/C Encore, 150 Gr. 777 pellets behind a polymer tipped Barnes all-copper 50 cal ML sabot. Complete penetration, short blood trails.

Yup there's still bucks around. In some places lots of them. Around the areas I have mostly hunted the buck to doe ratio is way outta whack due to so much buck shooting. It's tough to get most folks to shoot does around here.

In about 2/3 of the state you can shoot two does per day the entire season but in my area it's only until the end of first week of January not the full season. Now with bow it's all season all over the state that you can shoot two does per day. Folks just don't shoot them for the most part.

Me I don't really care I usually just shoot the first legal deer I see knowing it could be the ONLY one I get to shoot that season. The population where I can hunt is much lower than most of the state.

Like someone said Texas starts Saturday morning November 3rd and last till January 6, 2008 in most counties. I'll be a little strange hunting under daylight savings time the first weekend but the deer don't know that. At least I've never seen one with a watch ;D
