I got out this morning to a local urban spot. Around 7:30 2 does and two fawns came in but didn't offer a shot.
At 7:45 2 more does came in and were feeding under my stand. They fed for 10 minutes before I was able to get a clean shot. I let an arrow fly, and it was a complete pass through. The doe ran off, and I heard her crash. A 30 yard tracking job revealed a nice 110lb 1 1/2 yo that is going to taste great on the grill!

Congrats! First deer of the year on Chitown if I am not mistaken. I'm hoping to match that doe her in the next week or so!

Congrats! It sure will take the pressure off when you can put meat in the freezer early season. Makes hunting the rut that much more enjoyable.

Good job, that is a great eating size. Always liked them.

I have some good spots and usually get one on opening day. It is nice to take the pressure off.
I hunted another urban spot on Wed afternoon. I had a steady flow of does coming through, and around 6:15 the bucks started showing up. I saw 3 spikes, 2 little six points, a smaller 8 point and a decent 8 point that would score between 135-145. The big guy is out there just waiting for my muzzy.

Congrats! Personally, I've never had the opportunity to tag out on opening day. That's awesome! Good luck the remainder of the season.

Thanks.
I mostly hunt small urban spots. The amount of deer is amazing, but they are not stupid. I approach every hunt like a trophy hunt. During the summer months the deer seem oblivious to human intrusion, but come hunting season they are very wary.
