I don't think it very prudent to bail on a job simply because of deer season. I doubt most people would or could leave their well paying, or at least stable employment just in the name of deer season. Not a very intelligent thing to do.That really stinks. That happened to me once too and I never got over it. I don't work at that place anymore. You can get a paycheck from more reasonable places to work.

Good jobs are a dime a dozen for those who are really willing to look and apply themselves. In this case it WAS a wise decision. I am now 5 minutes from home, make 1 1/2 times the money that I was and I have the first two days if deer season off every year.
To each their own. You do what you want. I'll do what I want.
I truly find your statement hard to believe, and severely naive. If you think finding a good job is easy, and "a dime a dozen" as you say, then what I'm hearing is that you either are well off and don't need to work, or are young and haven't experienced a layoff, or extended periods of unemployment with nobody knocking at your door.
As you say though, to each his own. If you put deer hunting above a stable or well paying job, then by all means quit whenever they don't give you the day off to hunt. See how that bodes with the next employer. Your priorities are yours alone, no matter how ridiculous they sound.
I had a career where I had to work every opening day and every Saturday of every hunting season. I still enjoyed hunting every day I had off even though it was only one day a week and weekday at that. It actually made me a better hunter because I had to learn how to hunt without counting on someone chasing something my way. I even got to where I was pretty darn successful at find game.
The point is that everyone needs to learn how to enjoy any and every hunting opportunity, regardless of the day or amount of time they can put in on the hunt.
It is always worth it if you truly enjoy hunting.
