Default still hunt opening morning?

Hey everyone,
I'm looking at the weather on opening morning (this Saturday) and it looks like the wind will be howling out of the NW (22 mph) all day long. Do you all think the deer will be moving with the wind whipping like that? Would it be better to try and walk them up?

Not on public land around here I wouldnt, opening day is like WWIII , but its a great idea on private land.

Well it's all relative I guess, I know SD has some pretty strong and steady winds but 22 mph is a pretty stiff wind up in NE MO. BTW, I love the name rob , I'm surprised the mods haven't made you change it yet.

I wouldn't still hunt on gun opener unless you were positive that you were in the boonies and there'd be NO ONE around. I wouldn't even trust private land that's posted. I've seen too many trespassers.

You can't shoot deer if you're not in the woods.

I still hunt every where I go. Public or not. I just usually get so far back in the swamps that no average Joe is gonna folow me. I seem to see more deer when I'm waist deep in swamp because all of the average hunters are hanging back on dry land. Admittedly, I haven't killed any this way, but I'm still kinda refining my "hunting abilities".

I always sit opening day, but if you really want to stalk you can go on my neighbors land and do it. Just make sure you walk towards me.
