What is the reason for why you will go home on Sunday or maybe Monday? when you used to stay until Wednesday? What changed for you? It does sound like you will be hunting Saturday.

Cause staying at rifle camp by yourself when everyone else vacated isn’t much fun. Just so I’m clear absolutely everyone of the guys I talk to travel for camp.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Well, there actually is a small bowling establishment in the closest town to camp. Been there since the late 50s, probably still has the same equipment?

Maybe 25 years ago when the farm boy cousin I hunt with, was still in a league, went down with him on the first Friday night of buck. Coupla lanes open, some local farm lads from up near camp came in and I bowled a few games with them. Don't think I've bowled since?

Might've even been the last flat lander hunter in town for deer, to have bowled there, but the bar next door always seems to be busy? Ain't been in there in about 28 years.

its like the first week of rifle season. Monday has the most people, Tuesday a little less and Wednesday a whole lot less. Thursday and Friday find me hunting the field edges for feeding deer as the pressure in the woods has dropped drastically. the deer are a little more at ease and often venture out to the field for a bite to eat before dark.


Then the first Saturday everyone is out as Buck and Doe can both be taken. then comes the second Monday and the woods are empty.

So are you saying all your camp mates are hunting Saturday and going home Sunday? If so they are all hunting the first day. Just so Im clear everyone I talk to hunts multiple days of the deer season other than one day. I guess I and my fellow hunters do not need multiple people around to make hunting fun. Some of the best hunting I experienced was alone.

Hunters that stay in Hotels/Motels B&B's and private lodges are another category when it comes to business.

Went to Kayak and did a search for the Saturday opener using Coudersport, PA. Many are sold out or only have a 1 day left.
