I was summarizing the whole issue to my wife last night while giving the kids a bath. She's not a hunter at all and didn't grow up particularly close to the "THE TRADITION".
We don't talk about hunting specifics much, it was the first time we really broached the subject. So I was kinda filling her in how our Thanksgiving weekend would change a little bit, but I wouldn't have to necessarily take Monday off anymore. I said I was kind of mixed because I would miss the old routine, but this was clearly better logistically. She thought it was great.
I told her a lot of the old timers were upset about it. Her perplexed response was "You mean you get another Saturday day to hunt and people are getting upset about it?". I just cracked up, it was rich comedy. She was truly bewildered. She understood when I explained some more of the specifics about this tradition stuff and what it entailed.
