Recommended Posts

Just went online to check for dates and the reg sets are for 2018-19. How could these not be updated by now?

IIRC they always release the Digest in August - I assume that is when all the dates are released, too?

Short fall bow season again this year.  Don't get a chance to hunt any of the rut without buying a permit.

Where you been?that way since early 80's.

Didn't need no stinking permit prior,license cost me almost a full day's pay $7.25 but good for whole fall season.

You couldn't hunt much of the rut around here until like 1987. I think that was the first year we had a "permit" bow season. Before that, bow season ended the day before small game season (rabbit and pheasant) began, which was the first Saturday in November, if I remember correctly. We didn't have as many bow hunters then it seemed, mostly gun hunters and small game was huge back then.

Agree. I started hunting in 1988 and I remember the permit season was pretty new. Not exactly sure what year it started but it was by lottery. The regular bow season ended the Friday before small game but that generally took you into the second week of November.

Been the same places as you, brother.  They took the last 2 weeks of bow season(the rut), and added it to the new permit season.  Sometimes we start fall bow at the end of the first week in Sept, and sometimes it doesn't end until closer to the end of Oct.  We got the short stick at both ends this year.  A week short at both ends.  The zones that don't start until Oct won't even have 4 full weeks,  3.5 of the worst weeks to hunt.
