I work 5 days a week so not as bad. This year I did switch to 2nd shift to be able to hit some morning hunts closer to home, mostly public land stuff but some small private stuff too.

Brother I work non-stop. When I do get time off, I spend it with my family. My hunting days are few and far between. Gotta make the most of what you got.

If I had the chance to work 6 days a week and it was paying time and a half on the 6th day it is likely I wouldn't worry about hunting my home stand and just save my 6th day pay each year and take a weeks vacation and book a hunt or take the whole week and just hunt by home and be done with. If you don't have vacation and only had 1 day off a week for a long stretch hunting would be the last thing on my mind. It depends a lot on your schedule also. IF you are working 8 hour days 6-2:30 or something you could hunt every evening you wanted.

Yep. They even ask for volunteers to work 6 hours on Sunday. Totally messed up my season last year. This season I am working the bare minimum and might burn some leave time. I have been working 60+ hours a week for two years. Tired of not having a life.
