Opening day got me excited. I felt well prepared as I climbed into my treestand about 11:00 AM on Saturday. Not quite as early as I would have liked, but I figured the best chance would be during the afternoon heat.
It was a long day. I sat until 6:30 PM and then climbed the hill after movnig the stand a few feet to make shooting a little easier.
Wildlife was all around me, but the position of the stand did not give me many chances to take interesting photos.
I spent quite a bit of time studying California ground squirrels which were feeding around the base of the trees.
I’ll be checking my GPS for the best times and planning my next trip soon.
