I'm in western CT. No closed season here. But daylight only and no Sundays.

Opening day is coming up fast, sounds like it will be a bit cooler, maybe a frost to keep the ticks down. They have been taunting me almost every night.

Indeed! The season came up quick, I haven't even reloaded ammo for the season yet.

I'll be out Saturday but i'll probably wait for snow on the ground before I go out at night so at least I can see. It's tough with no snow even with a full moon.

Good luck!

Nice, i'll be heading out your way. Probably call in the Worthington area.

I don't bow hunt but i'm sure i'll see some good sign that's COLD by the time shotgun rolls around.

Good luck!

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target!

NOPE

Tough year weatherwise for the 9-5 guys that only hunt Saturdays, been raining every Saturday since opening. I usually don't go out at night until we get snowfall, can't see much otherwise.

I'll be out this weekend then it's off to deer season out-of-state.

Good luck fella's, lets here it if you had success.

After all the wind I got out Tuesday morning and on the second stand got a 41 pound female to one of the "showshoe rabbit" sounds. Must be 20 miles to the nearest snowshoe rabbit. This morning with the same sound I called in and rolled one, but couldn't find it after it ran off. Back windy as heck again. Anyone else getting out ?

Nice!! Snowshoe #2 is a sound I use quite a bit.

Went out Saturday looking for a cat, made 4 stands. Nothing. Hopefully will get out this Saturday before the storm rolls through and then you can't park anywhere anymore.

Good luck out there

Congrats masshunter, I haven't been out once. 2 guys short on my machine so I'm working 65+ hours a week, and to top that off my past 3 weekends (Wednesday and Thursday) I've had either a child or a wife home sick.

Went out to try the moon last night, did two sets right behind my house as the wind was perfect. No coyotes showed during my 45 min sets, 8:30 to 9:15, and 11:10 to midnight. My first set brought in a grey fox when I turned the sound down to 3, a lesson there I think. I kept him around for a live decoy. Also on both sets a big owl kept attacking my mojo critter that I always tie down. I did a big circle this morning and no fresh tracks that wern't there the day before, so I guess they were all out of hearing. I don't think the fox would have hung around if he smelled any yotes. Don't think I'll have any moon tonight with the rain.

I was FINALLY able to get out for the first time this 2018/2019 season. Between work, kids wrestling ,bball and the flu that hit all 5 of us in the house one week after another I never had the time. I went out wednesday am and made 4 stands with my father. First stand ended when my father shaved a coyote at 40 yards or so. I couldn't get a follow up shot and neither could he. Took about 21 minutes till that dog came in.
Next 3 stands were blanks.
My father went to the range thursday to check his zero and he was 4" high and 3" left at 100 yards. Something hanky happened because he took that gun to the range on monday to check zero and it was good!! [beeep] Luck

How have you guys been doing??
