    End of December threw about the middle of January and hope we get some what of a cold front to help things out. Of course this is in Alabama.

    I will hunt from Halloween, which will be a new moon, through Nov 11 if needed. This is the time period when most activity takes place in my area. I'll do dark to dark hunts each day. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!

    I have off Halloween, go to work for 4 days then I'm off from nov 5-13. Hopefully I can get some half days or something off any other days this year. Those 4 days working November 1-4 will probably be awesome too haha

    I used to always start my vacation around Halloween. But I began to notice that activity really started to pick up around Nov. 8th every year. Now I usually schedule it beginning around Nov. 5th. That's just speaking about the property I hunt. It may be different for everyone else. This year I will be starting on the 5th and go through to the 18th.

    Blessings..........Pastorjim

    Where I hunt in Central Arkansas, I have always seen the best movement from Veteran's Day to Thanksgiving Weekend. I have a tradition of taking my son with me for an evening sit on Veteran's Day and then I hunt as much as I can until the Monday after Thanksgiving.

    You'll find that to be the case on any forum, with any topic, if you stay on there long enough. I think it really benefits the folks who are fairly new to this sport, who don't know a lot yet. Learning these dates can be a make or break for some hunters.

    For the last 3 years I have kept my calendar clear for the last week in October through the second week in November. I then do my best to evaluate how things are going and squeeze work in when I need to. It seems that years ago Late October always produced for me, but in the past 5 years 5 or 6 days into November has always been supreme time to be in the deer woods. I'm in Northwestern Illinois for point of reference.
