I think the numbers will be down, but comparing it to last years numbers is apples to oranges for a number of reason. Last year's opening weekend was VERY warm, meaning people had to register their deer within hours of shooting it, this year is the complete opposite, so there could be a lot of deer that are still hanging and haven't been registered because people haven't headed home from their weekend trip. That said, I drove back (3.5 hours) yesterday afternoon and only saw three deer being driven home. I usually, at least 20 on my drive home. Hunting was rough this weekend, they're out there, just moving a lot at night. Every morning I'd sit in my stand for the first hour, see nothing, then start walking and still hunting. Each morning I'd see a ton of new sign and tracks, but nothing moving during the day. I believe the wind, temp, and late season will all have effects on the total kill numbers.
