I hunt early archery season. It opens first Saturday of October then runs to the second Saturday of November. We then have no deer hunting for two weeks and then rifle season (First Monday after thanksgiving and runs just shy of two weeks). I hunt all of early season. If I don't get a deer - I go out in rifle to get one (once I get one I'm done, hate rifle hunting and I just go to get meat in the freezer). Our late season is only like 2 and a half weeks. By then we're buried in snow and I'm over it. I hate the cold.
