Opener on a Sunday?
« on: March 05, 2018, 02:30:23 PM »
I'm not sure why the opener is on a Sunday? You think they would want to start the season on a Saturday and open it on the 14th instead of the 15th. any idea why?

Opener is April 15th every year regardless of the day of the week that it falls on.
They're gonna be where you find 'em

You must be retired. I think the elk season is way better now.

Also not true for eastside .well I guess it depends what part of the east side your in.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
