Here is what I'm dealing with when it comes to a Sat. opener
Where I work we have Thanksgiving Day off, Friday, Mon, and Tues as Holidays. They usually Mandatory the Sat (proposed opener) and if we call off we lose the holiday pays. That would be a major hit in the paycheck because I will have to call off. Too bad they could'nt bring the opener in on Sunday as we don't work that day.
On the other hand I have 2 children in college and they are back in class on the Monday after Thanksgiving as the colleges don't recognize deer season. They would make out real good for a Sat. opener. The Sat opener would let us all hunt and go to camp together again like they were in high school.
So for me I have to be ready if a change comes even though I would not like the paycheck scenario but on the other hand we all make out as a family. I'll will have to plan harder, push a little harder to maybe get a buck before the rifle season or fill some doe tags. Then I can lay back and have a blast watching my kids hunt.
On a final note we would have to give up our MD hunts as it opens on that Saturday.
I guess we shall soon see what happens in Aprils' meeting.
