Big game archery hunting for me is right around 20 days. If you include small game and predators then it starts adding up. ::laugh2

Since I am not working

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.

We have around three months

We have around three months of archery whitetail here in Wisconsin....it usually doesn't take me that long though to fill my freezer.  I work 7 days on, 7 days off so typically I hunt every other week.

I take 3 weeks vacation for whitetail. and usually hunt every day of that vacation time. I also hunt many days when I'm not on vacation. If I had to guess, I would say at least 50 days.

last year I put in about 30

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.Wink
