    Firearms season dates...

    So the dates of the 2018 are Nov 17-Dec 2.

    In years past the season ended on Thanksgiving weekend. This is the second year that the season has ended the weekend following thanksgiving.

    I remember the "backlash" a few years back during public comments when the DNR was talking about changing up the seasons. And now it seems they have quietly pushed the firearms season out a week to stay.

    Much to the joy of the bowhunters, I'm sure. Who have been wanting the rut all to themselves for a long time.

    Or am I reading too much into this?

    Season has for years(decades?) started the first Saturday after the 11th of November. This puts Thanksgiving at the end of the season some years and in the middle of the season some years.
    No conspiracy going on.

    I'm a bow hunter, didn't realize that made me guilty of something.
    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    The season has followed the same format for YEARS. No conspiracy by anyone.

    Straight out of Indiana Code ... (e) The firearms deer season is from the first Saturday after November 11 and continues for an additional fifteen (15) days.

    The start date and it's relationship to Thanksgiving weekend is all dependent on how the calendar year falls. No black helicopters.

    If it's deer you want, hunt hard, regardless of season. It's like fishing: if the line isn't in the water a whole lot more than it sits in the reel, you are a fish-gossip and/or drunk, you are not a fisherman.

    Having a lot of success in hunting has a lot to do with spending a lot of hours hunting, practicing hunting, studying hunting, researching hunting, and making any-and-all sacrifices that have to be made to get that done.
