My deer seasons start the same as yours. Just a suggestion; you might want to put a little scouting time in! Now's the time! Most guys are probably out setting stands, scouting, planning entrance routes to their stands, Etc.
I'm not saying that you have to, but merely suggesting it! Alot of preparation goes into "hunting" the big boys! We wait patiently all year for deer season, so it's best to have a plan. Taking field notes can give you something to look back on every year and you can compare tactics, stand sites, deer movement, weather, Etc. Good luck this year!!!

Yea season starts Saturday and I am PUMPED!!!! we got a lot of good deer on camera and plenty of daytime movement. I have been working on my spots since May putting feed out and cameras, hanging stands, cutting lanes and trails, ect. I have hunted public land in Ohio before so i know this is hard to do. The main thing that you might want to do if you are hunting public land is walk. We hunted East Fork with i think is around 2700 acres. We spend days out there just walking around. It paid off with our group of 5 harvesting (1) 165 in 12 pointer and a 135in 6 pointer that was aged at 9 1/2 years old! all of us either had a shot at big buck or saw one. if you are familiar with the land already from gun hunting then you may be OK! good luck man i know there are a lot of bruisers here in KY!

I'm ready for my season to start. I have a friend giving me a bow so I can start Oct 1. Firearms starts Nov 18. I've done a little scouting but haven't seen any deer on my cam yet (its only been out 2 weeks).

I live in Ohio and the season starts sept 29 I'm really ready for the season to start this year I've got my stands up and still out looking for the big buck I have been looking for. For the last 12 years but this year I hung a stand on a point of trees about 5 yards thick in between to corn fields so that's where I'll be the opening day
