    I am used to hearing all kinds of gun shots on opening day. Sounds like WWIII.
    Today, I heard 1 shot! Is this just in my area? Have you been hearing much today?

    I'd say cause of the high wind mph

    I heard about 5 or 6 shots and that was on on public land. I was out about 7.5 hours too.

    Round me it seemed like everyone shot at least 2-3 times but me First shot was at 6:12, I couldn't even see the ground below me and there were shots late as I was walking out almost needing a light.

    It was pretty quiet around me all weekend, except the fellow that thought it would be good to do some target shooting Saturday around 4pm for about 45 minutes. Rifles, handguns, you name it, he was shooting it.

    I dropped a nice 7pt around 6:45 Saturday morning, but beyond that all my son and I saw were quite a few spikes.

    normal in my neck of the woods, opening day was a little low, but i think that had to do with the wind, but today there was shots all around! same ole same ole!
