No matter how young or old you are, where you hunt, whom you hunt with or what kind of place serves as your deer camp, we all have at least one have thing in common: the magic of opening day. Even when you’ve seen more than 40 of them (and that’s just in my home state), the wonder and possibilities make a person feel young again.
Yes, there’s all the nice stuff that we all value about opening day. The camaraderie of deer camp. Hunting with friends and family. Turning the page on another year. Building happy memories.
But let’s be honest. There’s another reason you’re here: to kill a deer. And if that truly is your goal, then opening day is the day of the season to do it.
