what day do you have to hunt

Postby schlupis » Fri Sep 26, 2008 11:44 pm

Is there a day during the bow season that no matter what, you have to be in a tree hunting. (opening day not included). What would it be
 
For me it is November 11th I have seen more shooter bucks than any other day of the season. So I dont make plans to do anything other than hunt on that day.

The 8th of november, that's my day.  It started back about 17 or 18 years ago, I killed my first deer on the evening of Nov.8.  The following year I repeated and killed my second deer on Nov.8.  So from then on it became my day.

Bow opening day for sure, other than that, December 1 as is was my dad's birthday.  Can't think of a better way to honor him than to do his favorite activity on his day.
 
Good shooting.

Glad to talk to all of you, but I'd rather be sitting in a tree stand on a cool morning trying not to move so that the bruiser buck directly below me doesn't figure out that I am watching him!

HALLOWEEN NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! I have ALWAYS seen nice bucks on that day.  I have never hunted it in the morning, but I always hunt it in the evening. I have seen so many deer too. I always make sure I have that day off work.

Hard to narrow it down, so I am going to cheat.
 
My "day" begins at 1:00 PM on Nov. 3 (Feast of St. Hubert) and ends at 1:00 pm on Nov. 4 (my birthday).

I don't have an exact day, but rather a week.  The weekend right before Thanksgiving up through the weekend after.  As you WI hunters know, this is the gun hunting season, and it's been a family/friend tradition ever since I can remember.  It's by far my favorite time of the year!!!! :P
