I think there's been a trend lately of more hunters opting to use more vacation time for the second week, when buck and doe are legal. I'm certainly one of those hunters that tends to opt this way.

If you ask me, once hunters begin to adjust to the new Saturday opener (and if Sunday hunting becomes a reality) I think it could help pump some life back into the hunting camp tradition. Camp guys and hunters in general could look forward to a full weekend of buck hunting and come back up the following weekend for buck and doe. Same thing with bear season. I also think you'll see more hunters planning full weekend trips to hunt PA during archery and small game season too.
