I don't do Opening Weekend, but went right after that. Strong winds made it seem pretty cold. DRY conditions are not ideal for your dog's scenting either. TBS, we saw surprising large number of birds. Extremely poor shooting resulted in only 2 roosters bagged for each hunter I was with over 2 1/2 days . Walked at least 5-7 miles per day. Bumping and seeing the birds made it all worth while.
