I think you picked a good time.....temps dropping for Thursday and beyond...they should be moving a little more.

A lot of crops are still up so that is slowing things down a bit around me.

Heard of several big ones killed the first week of the season. Mosquitos are HORRIBLE!!! I've never seen them this bad. Crops are up and trees are still full of leaves. Not a fun time to be in the woods, but you can't kill them sitting on the couch.

I spent the weekend camping with the family. The mosquitos are out in full force. (Sorry for the bad news.) Bring plenty of bug spray if you use it.

crops are still up, trees have a ton of leaves still, temps have been warm, but supposed to cool down later this week, only yearlings have been moving, skeeters are aweful. That being said, deer trails are heavily traveled, scrapes and rubs are slowly beginning to show up and hopefully these cooler temps will bring some movement, some of the crops are being harvested, and this cold front should bring some wind and rain to get rid of some of the leaves.

What county are you going to?
