Oh , you got a 2 hr. drive, that's not even half way for me.
Better pack some Xanex in case you loose power or your water froze up at Camp, don't sound like you could handle it?
Cold Bed at 2AM ? get a better Sleeping Bag. GEEEZ,
What???

I was making a point that it isn't that hard to drive to camp on Friday night even if you work. Others on here act like you need to have a minimum of 2 days just to drive to and open camp before you can even think of hunting.

what it comes down to you have to have a marketable product to sell. The pgc doesn't have the product now the small game hunting is gone mismanaged and to many predator' the deer herd has been destroyed on public ground by to many doe licences to many seasons they are hunted for over 3 months. The question is can they save hunting or will they mismanage it like they have for my lifetime

There is no difference in THE opening day if it is a Saturday, Monday, Tuesday or any other day of the week.

What is different is that for those who always hunting THE opening day and now can't it is absolutely not as simple as saying "Ok you don't get to hunt THE opening day but can still hunt on the Monday after Thanksgiving like you always did before.

There IS a MAJOR DIFFERENCE because Monday if no longer THE opening day.

I would hope everyone can understand that difference.

For me I am fine with the Saturday opening day. I actually see it as probably being a benefit to me. I always have some great big woods trails to post along. That is how I mostly since I got too old cover the miles of ground I once did. But, every year the hunters came into camp on Friday then spent all day Saturday and Sunday stomping all over the woods chasing everything into the most remote and thickest cover in the woods. With a Saturday opening day I figure my hunting will be better than it was with a Monday opener.

But, I still fully understand the complaint of those who had their opening day changed.

Are you trying to say that now that the opener is on saturday, that there will be less hunters able to hunt then if it was monday?

You could have just summed this up by just saying "I am one of those no deer guys, why bother"...
