    Is our deer season really too long?

    With a 5 month deer season how many days did you hunt for deer? I spent 10 days bow and 10 days gun hunting, I like the longer season due to time constraints but a lot of hunters disagree, just because we have a long season it doesn't mean everybody hunts every day. So what are your thoughts and how many days did you deer hunt during the 2016-2017 season?

    I like it because I work a lot and need to spend time with my children. If someone wants to stop hunting at any point during the season they can simply not hunt. I Bowhunt only so it's not like I kill them all but I need 4 usually.

    Maybe 5 afternoon sits for deer with the bow (two more for bear) and 8 days between muzzleloader and shotgun - with the exception of both openers, days actually means partial days.

    Three half days for winter bow, two days during firearms season three days with the muzzy. If not for the late seasons I probably wouldn't be able to find the time to hunt. Fall is usually a busy time at work.

    If that's true more power to you, I wish I still had that dedication, I used to hunt everyday after work and Saturdays, I promised the old lady I would slow down after 50 years old
