On a normal year I think that this would be a safe assumption. However,
with this being a year that AGFC will implement changes in the deer season
I would say all opening dates, bag limits and everything else associated with
deer hunting will be a guessing game until after the meetings and new regs are updated.
I think buckhorn makes some good points that should be taken into consideration, but if I had to put in for vacation time now, I'd guess the 2nd Saturday of November as the opener for the 08-09 season.
