Number of days per year you hunt....

August 2003 Poll:

Number of days per year you hunt....

How often do you hit the field to hunt every year? The answer is probably a unanimous not enough. However we thought it would be interesting to take a look this month at how often must hunters get out during the year. Any type of hunting counts, not just big game.

Hard to say since I haven't actually hunted in 13 yrs, but 8-14 is the range that I'll be in this year. The last years I hunted you could say 26, but that would be counting the M-F when it was only after school. Saturdays were the only "real" hunting days that I had.

Moderator: Not enough is the correct answer. Even though I am retired I still don’t get to hunt or shoot as I please. I am one of the luckier ones though. I get to hunt in excess of 30 days a year. I have seen the most wonderful sights while in the woods or the high plains hunting. I pray I never get tired of hunting.

I would guess just under 60 days for myself. That would include coyote in the summer to bear in Sept. through to hare in Feb.

I'd say 75+ days a year including all types of hunting but season seems to go by way to fast

I would gather that I am probably hunting around 100 days a year or so just for myself. If you included the guiding that I do it would be closer to 250-280 a year.

I would have to say I hunt almost every day of the year. When it's not with my hand gun or blackpowder ,I'll hunt with my camera. As EX Pres. Clinton would say, define hunting.

Like everyone else not enough, but I do get out about 30 days per year.
