Since I am not working anymore I'll usually stay out for the season witch is 30 days for deer and elk not counting small game. Now I really don't get serrious over Labor Day with all the extra hunters in the field or if it is raining or snowing. But if it does snow I'm out there as soon as it quits. I'll also have to take a time out if I shoot one of the critters until I get it taken care of.
last year I put in about 30 days of archery in colorado. Now that I moved back to FL there are multiple archery season for different parts of the state. Hell I could hunt for almost 4 months traight with a bow if i wanted too.
It will probably be more like 2 months this year. I try to be in the woods every chance I get during open season.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
