    I always take the last week of the season because I could not bear to be at work if I had a tag left.....

    I don't know about your area, but where I live pre-rut seems to see the most activity, which would be late Ocotber/early November.

    I'd take 28th-6th. IMO, that's when the bucks start moving a bit more here in Northern Illinois.

    I've killed many many more deer after Nov 2 than prior to.
    Check the moon phase, too.

    I always take off the week before Missouri Rifle season which will be Nov. 3rd - 9th, then the first 2 days of Rifle season. This is generally when I get the most activity on my place. This year, the new moon falls on Nov. 7th which should be good for that week.
