What I do not get is how is it ruining tradition. The Monday after the opener on Saturday is still open season. So if you want to keep your tradition go up to your camp on the weekend like you always do and hunt that Monday. Or if your tradition is just going out Monday do that instead of Saturday. There will still be plenty of deer in the woods. Nobody is forcing anyone to hunt that Saturday. It is not that they took a day away they just gave an extra option.
