The day was unseasonably warm with highs touching the mid 40’s instead of the usual parkas we normally wear we were able to dress rather lightly and still be comfortable. The warm temps were nice but the accompanying fog and condensing drizzle proved to be challenging. Spotting brown/grey deer against the brown leafy ground and grey tree trunks is challenging enough, add fog reducing visibility to only about fifty yards and it makes for very challenging conditions. In ten hours of hunting I did manage to see one solitary deer (a six point buck) when it came up from directly behind me and walked right under my tree stand before it spooked and vanished into the mist before I had a chance to get it in my scope. My younger brother Luke saw two deer (what he thinks may have been bucks) which passed just beyond his clear field of view. The rest of our crew (six other guys) didn’t see a thing. Opening day us normally our best chance at seeing deer so if today was an indicator of what this season might be like we may be in for a long thin season. With any luck tomorrow will dawn fogless and colder with deer in the mood to move around.
