No way I will miss work for hunting the first day, or first 3 weeks of season .I was a young hunter once that couldn't wait as well we all did it .We call the work missers rookies around here as a way of ribbing them because we all did it when we that age .

But with age and experiance comes patiance and we know the time of the year we hunt is the most important dates to miss work not the first day just because we can go .I will hunt after work but if its hot or raining I will be enjoying the ac or tv for this month known as October!! I will be takeing two weeks of vacation in November this year they are the second and third weeks respectively .They arrear to be the right weeks this year last year was the first week and second week it changes just a week or so yearly
IMHO:)Good luck all

I'll be out weather permitting. The farmer called this morning wanting me to open my gates so they can combine the beans...big bummer, but they are leaving about 40% of the crops because they are still green because they were replanted. HOPEFULLY this will still keep the deer in the same feeding pattern for a couple of weeks. Getting excited, the Switchback is dialed in.

I'll be out, but in Illinois for opening day. I don't hunt much in early Oct, but I want to get a doe down quick.. I am guessing by 8:30am Oct 1st, I'll have let an arrow fly...

Around the 8th thru the 11th of Nov. has always been the best buck time for me. :thumbs_up

Not worth missing work the first three weeks. From a couple days before Halloween on is the time to schedule vacation. Anything else is a waste.
