OK, it's really happening now. Sure, Hawaii and Florida's Zone A have been open for a couple of weeks, but Alabama, Mississippi and Low Country South Carolina opened today, and Saturday marks the opener in Texas' Rio Grande South Zone and Florida's zones B, C and D.
In fact, my good buddy Wade Atchley, left, struck paydirt near Titus, Ala., opening morning. He actually texted me at 6 a.m. to report that it was 37 degrees for the opener. When I told him to go kill a bird anyway, he wrote, "He might be frozen to the limb."
Yep. It's on. Let us know how you do.
