    There will be a final vote I believe in April, I see this as a positive and negative.

    Obviously it helps add an extra day to season and helps for youth hunters with school and some adults so they dont have to take off work.

    For the out of state guys that have to travel and those residents that also travel to the "big woods" camps, it is nice to have the extra time to get out to camp after Thanksgiving, no rushing or crazy Friday holiday traffic, maybe some last minute scouting or hanging stands.. just very relaxed. Now I see a mad rush on Friday so you can try and get settled in for that Saturday morning.....plus I can see the local businesses will suffer a little with people spending less time in those areas....dinner, groceries, gas etc..

    They did the same thing in NY changing from a Monday to a Saturday some years ago...most guys hunt the weekend and are gone by Monday or Tue..bright side is the woods are nice and quiet after then until Saturday again....

    We will see what happens, old traditions die hard in PA...

    yes i can feel for the tradition.its different in pennsy because you cant hunt unlimited does and several buck tags.rifle week is a bigger deal. many pennsy camp hunters i know leave for camp right after thanksgiving dinner or that friday anyway. i see a win for N.J. guys because now you can get the Pennsy opener in and then get back for Mondays Muzzy opener which is the new buck week anyway. it may even get Pennsy guys to hunt muzzy here on that monday.
