Bear drivers usually drive out all the heavy cover around. Wouldnít the deer move back into the cover after the drives? Where else will they go.

They may come back but they may not want to move as much during daylight after getting that kind of pressure or perhaps abandon the area all together and get pushed on to posted property and stay there . There really isn’t too much good that can come out of a bedding area being driven out by a group of guys a week or two before you plan on archery hunting it.
Not trying to offend those who may be looking forward to possibly hunting bear with a muzzleloader but on my end it has the potential to make things pretty challenging for me.

It does not matter to me what day the opener is, but since it adds a extra day to hunt I am for it.

Good luck, Tony

If implemented.......wonder if school districts will eliminate the traditional "Deer Season Monday" holiday?? Could result in shortening school year calendar by a day.

There is no agriculture within miles of where I hunt. If they are doing this because of concerns over agriculture why donít they redtag farms for bear like they do for deer ?
If it happens I will adapt but I would be lying if I didnít say I could do without it.

How many schools still do that? They could still have off because of tradition. Or bank it, in case of extra snow days.
