For several months, I have looked foward to opening day of West Virginia's bow season, which is today, September 26. But all week the forecast has been for rain today, and, unfortunately, the forecast was accurate.
Ten or so days ago, I had made a quick visit to our Gap Mills land in Monroe County to check out the acorn situation. I had determined my stand site and made my game plan for the day, which was simple - stay on stand until noon, go back to the truck for lunch and a nap, and be back on stand by 2:30, and stay there until dark or until I arrowed a deer.
The rainy forecast was so ominous last night that I didn't even bother to set the alarm. As I write this, it is now 10:47 A.M. and the forecast remains poor for the rest of the day. I imagine my bow will remain where it is.
