I generally deer hunt through the end of December or early January. By then most
of my gas money has been spent and I start working toward the next season
or doing all of the honey dues that have piled up since September when squirrel season opens. I also have beagles so I try to start rabbit hunting January and February.
Deer hunt through December then start chasing them tree rats, then turkeys, then doves....
Deer hunt the entire season and do a little predator hunting too.. I usually turkey hunt a few days when its in too.
Year round. I love camera season about as much as bow season or gun season.
Well I can actually give ya a specific time frame. I start when they let and I'll quit when I'm done or the seasons end, which ever comes first.
Just long enough to let those greenhead's start comming south.

Exactly, I normally sit in my stand until I start to hear those flocks of honkers migrating south. That means ducks are right around the corner.
I deer hunt untill I get a good buck or the duck hunting fever get to much to bear!!!!
I only deer hunt until the duck season comes in.

I like to deer hunt... but i LOVE to duck hunt!!!

Threre are a lot of times I SHOULD have been on a deer stand, but I still go to wet muddy places to try to scratch out a duck or two!
Well, I'm a trapper also, so I start with my bow in Ocotber, and my muzzleloader, and I take the wife and son gun hunting in the opener of gun season in November and we normally have from 4 to 5 deer in the freezer by then. The trophy is in the back straps for us. I usually kill a couple of decent deer and then I drag and skin for them. I process all of our deer, so I'm busy till trapping season and then I'm running hard with trapping. I run across several deer, cause everybody down here seems to like magnums and watch right of ways and open fields. If I had time from trapping I'd shoot one with my pistol in the brush, but I don't too many beaver and other critters to skin and no freezer room. We have 3 freezers for meat, plus one for my fur.
Deer,ducks, Turkey,coyote,squirrels,pretty much all of it!
Until mid-January or until I kill me a good one, whichever comes first.
As soon as I can get there until they make me leave:thumb:
Sept till feb then I just waiting for spring turkey to open..:biggrin:

.. I'll start squirrel hunting next weekend, then Oct 1st I move into if its "Brown its Down" season till Feb.. :biggrin:
I'll start with Doves when I have a place to hunt. After that I chase squirrels if the weather cooperates. From there it's on to deer with the stick and string, smoke pole and rifle. I usually get tired of that by late November and then it's time to chase squirrels with the dogs till the end of February.
i pretty much hunt everything as allowed except for birds (not including longbeards) and bears.
