going on around me. Last year on opening day it sounded like a war zone. This morning just a pop or two here and there. Guess Harvey chased them away.

I haven't seen any white wings in the neighborhood since Harvey so you may be on to something. Usually if I could shoot in the city I would limit out in less than an hour in the hood. laugh

Yesterday I went with my neighbor to his place southwest of town, we didn't see as many birds as we did a week ago.

Wasn't opening day last year on a weekend? It was last or the year before. You don't get the sheer number of hunters on a weekday.
