For many of us, Saturday morning will be our first whitetail hunt of the season. I'm not in a big hurry to put meat in the freezer or antlers on the ground, but that wasn't always the case. Curious what the ideal opening weekend looks like for other THF hunters. I think most of us look forward to time away from work, camaraderie with friends and family, good food and drinks by the fire, but what are you hopeful for purely from a hunting perspective?

For me, I'm hopeful to see evidence that the good rains produced some big jumps among our up-and-coming bucks.I'm not likely to pull the trigger this weekend, but would love to see at least one fully mature shooter.

I will enjoy the time with my family, hunting with my wife, and getting away from the daily grind. However, I hunt for a reason and I want to be successful I hope the bull of the woods comes out to get shot, its not like hunting season is over if I bust one opening morning.

Like said, being with family, and a break from reality. Mostly my daughters first hunt being behind the gun. She has been with me several times over the last few years, but now it's on!

Being in the woods, the quiet while watching all wildlife, maybe cooler temps and no wasps ! Most importantly enjoying nature.

I'm looking forward to being disconnected from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Things move slower and seem more simple when it's just you, your gun and the woods.

I would love to again wake up to 6 inches of snow on the ground. I know, I know, it ain't gonna happen this year. But for those old enough to remember opening day 1976, it was glorious.

Thought I was going to be alone at the camp but my brother is coming to hunt. We haven't really done much together in months due to our work schedules, but I'm hoping to enjoy spending little bro, big bro time together as well as shooting us both some deer.

I am like redchevy, would love to see the bull of the woods. Hope I see some other bucks just to watch...nothing like opening week-end. Cooler temps and a bit of moisture in the air, just great.

Since last season was a complete bust, I am hoping to put some meat in the freezer. And enjoy the weekend with my nephew.
