View Full Version : Who's hunting opening day?

September 22nd, 2009, 12:08 PM
With opening day on a Thursday this year I am trying to do all that I can to get off work and be able to go hunt, but I still don't know if it is going to work out or not. How many of you guys are going to be lucky enough to be out next Thursday for opening morning and where are you hunting?

Unless I am dead I will be out there. Well actually I am hoping 1 of the jobs I bid does not want their jobs to start on a Thursday! Thats 1 great thing about being self-employed, scheduling conflicts. ;)

Yeah I think that starting opening day we need to start an Arkansas success thread where everybody can post their pics for this season.

That sounds like a good idea.

September 23rd, 2009, 01:22 PM
Yeah baby! I am taking off Thursday and Friday depending on weather. Work for myself...I do what I want!

Lets make an AR opener thread to track success.

Yeah I couldn't stand it anymore, made the plans and I am going up to one of our farms to bowhunt all this weekend up in Missouri. I guess that makes up for not being able to go out next Thursday.

I'll be out on that Thursday and hopefully I'll be posting pics that afternoon! I'm not gonna be picky, does are fair game! Plus, I'd rather satisfy my blood lust early...

Oh I can guarantee you that if a big fat doe walks out this weekend up in Missouri that I am letting one fly. Gotta take advantage any time that you can put meat in the freezer early in the season.

You gotta get blood on your hands early for good luck.

September 28th, 2009, 10:07 AM
Heading to camp Wed about noon.

Probably not. School teaching and hunting ofter do not mix well. Could run out to a lot I have near Avoca and set up after work, but if I got one it would be more torture than fun. At my age dragging is out if any distance at all and the thought of trying to clean one and butcher it in the field without any facilities, water, or light is just too daunting for me. Call me a wuss I guess......................... ..

It will be an off day for me, will be out there without bells on...

September 29th, 2009, 02:52 PM
I'll be out there starting Thursday afternoon through Sunday evening. Unless I tag out before then. :wink:

I get all day Thursday and Friday. Then Saturday pm, me and a buddy are going on the quest for hogs. Sunday, I will be in a tree with my 5 yr old.
