    Who else is gonna be stuck at work all day instead of out in the stand? First time I've missed an opening day in 15 years. Pretty bummed out with all the activity goin on too.

    I'd pretty much quit any job anywhere at anytime before missing rifle opener.

    I haven't missed a gun opener since I started deer hunting in the late 70's..... so nope... will be in the stand tomorrow if the good Lord is willing.

    Which the weather is finally right....front coming in Sunday...the rut is absolutely busting wide open right now... bucks & does chasing everywhere. It wouldn't surprise me if tomorrow wouldn't rank right at the top being the best opening day of Ky gun season ever. Just everything is lining up to make it absolutely perfect.

    But... sorry about your luck in having to work.

    28 years ago tomorrow I was in the hospital in Louisville watching the darkness fade to dawn. A few hours later my wife delivered our son. It was worth it to miss the opener. Anything else...not so much.

    I'll be there but have to admit I get a little freaked out by all the shooting. If you see a big fat guy in a fetal position in a tree stand that's me.

    In about 5 hours you should send your boss a sad groggy message with a few coughs mixed in the message about how you need to take a sick day. Just saying;)
