Each year the season gets one day longer due to calendar date adjustments matching a Saturday opening. So after seven years of the season getting a day longer each year they take a week off and the process starts all over. Considering the population is low due to the blue tongue I think that (even though it's incidental) it's good timing for the deer to recover.

look at past years pamphlets and you will see season gets a day earlier each year and then about every seven years they have to back it up a week and the process starts over

I don't have a problem bringing down harvest for other reasons,So just think there are better ways to do it.Like making a horn restriction for late buck only ,like 4pt min,that way we still have the same amount of time in the woods.

Looking at the calender it does make better sense now,not gonna say I like it.I remember years ago late buck would open the last weekend of elk and you could hunt both for weekend.Maybe this has something to do with them taking that away years ago . :dunno:

Same thing happens with youth turkey, it's the first weekend in April, this year it was April 1-2, next year it should kick back to Apr 7-8.
