If I understand things correctly they are really trying to adjust the dates to align with rut activity in whatever part of the state you reside. For the most part from talking to some it is 'closer' now then in times past. Others still feel they are off the mark. I did read that they know they haven't all the areas pinpointed and there may be another tweaking, but it is still Florida(rutting activity is all over the place). I don't think every region will be able to be fully accomodated, but it seems good they are trying.
FWIW, my archery times weren't even close to anything. Heck when gun season came in the bucks were just being reported as still in bachelor groups without any serious signs of dominant bx, just light sparring.
I'm still on the undecided fence. Gonna give it another full season next year (see if my area is tweaked anymore) and make a sound decision then.
