Overall Activity Status: On Saturday, all of Pennsylvania and Vermont opens to bowhunters. New York State's southern zone and Maine opened on Thursday. Only Massachusetts (of course) remains closed. By most reports, these late-state openers have lined up with whitetail coming off their summer pattern. Bachelor groups are slowly but surely coming apart. Deer hitting green fields with regularity are turning to other sources. From Maryland and Delaware up through New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, hunters are reporting bumper hard mast, especially white oaks. In New York and points north, acorns seem to be about average. Apples are seemingly everywhere, too, but I've heard reports of dead zones in Pennsylvania. In my corner of the world, in New York's Finger Lake region, the acorns look average at best, but every walk in the woods or drive down a dirt road results in bumping deer off apple trees.
