Being that I'm still a college student, I have plenty of time to hunt so it wouldn't anything to me to miss a Saturday to watch my Badgers.  Heck, I even go to half the games so I'd say thats worth missing hunting time.[:D]

i would not give up a hunt to watch football , i take my son to a state park every year to participate in a youth gun hunt , this park has an unbelievable amout of deer , well this hunt always seems to fall on the weekend that Ohio State plays Michigan , they have a drawing and only take about 30 kids per year , so some years kids go home from the drawing dissapointed that there name didnt get drawn !and then on sat when its time for the ball game to start , the ones that do get to hunt , are made to leave so there dads can go watch the ball game ![:@] i have personally heard kids ask their dads if they can stay and hunt , and the dad says no he wants to watch the game! usually by noon sat. there aint but 3 or 4 kids hunting ! its a shame ! we have never left early and 3 yrs ago my son killed an 8 pointer that was a little over 120 inches at 3:00 on sat. and believe me there will never be a football game worth missing that !

 Huntings more important to me than football and id never give up a day during the rut. Buuuut maybe if notre dame had a big game during the evening id skip an early season hunt if the weather was hot.  Usually on Sunday the colts play at noon and i go huntin when the games over. Luckily i live close to where i hunt, if i had to drive a ways the game wouldnt seem very important at all.

Football is the main reason when I go out in the AM. I stay out. If I go home, it's over.
College or pro it doesn't matter I'm hooked. I feel guilty later, but I can't help it.
Years of experiance have taught me I'm probably not getting anything anyway so enjoy the game.

Funny observation ZEEK. I too have had feelings of guilt when I miss out on hunting to do some other leisure activity. Then I have to remind myself that I do this for enjoyment, not work.

You'll like this one fasteddie. In 2006, I was able to hunt a Sunday morning, shoot a 135" 10 pt. at sunrise, miss a doe, recover my buck and make it back home for the 10:30 Mass with clean hands. No football that afternoon though. My wife was not thrilled about getting the kids ready for church while I was hunting, so I was very attentive to her.

For me hunting and enjoyment don't seem to go together. I know they should.
But then again I did not enjoy the Cowboys game last night either.
It's only fun when you win.
