I usually take the first week off and then long weekends for the rest of the season.  However, I am in the boat where my spring outage season is moving into April.  This year its suppose to end the week before the start of the season.  I put in for it but if it runs over, then they reserve the right to cancel my vacation.  Not happy about it![:@]

Lets see..... job.....hunting....job.....hunting..... thats a tough one.
Gotta get your priorites in order and go look for a job after hunting season is over [8|] I wish it was that easy... My boss knows that the only time I take off during the year is for hunting... the rest of the year I am at work rain, shine, sick, whatever, so I get a some prime days and a few "couple hour" late start days when I am not needed badly.

I'm also S/E, but have to work a lot to make the kind of living I've become accustomed to.   The only vacation time I get is a week at Thanksgiving and a couple weeks at Christmas/ New Years.  My wife and I take tropical vacations out of the Country then...see why I have to work so much?   Sometimes I can alter my schedule during Turkey season and get a morning's hunt in (never two days in a row), but mostly, I'm a Saturday hunter (hunting is prohibited in N.C. on Sundays). I go when I get the chance, regardless of weather. Since the economy has slowed, I may get more time to go this Spring...a smaller bank account, but a higher pleasure rating & a filled freezer are probably worth the trade-off.
Business traditionally drops off during deer season, so usually I get plenty of woods time then.

I get the first two weeks in NY then bounce from my home state of CT to NY as much as the boss will let me. I am the boss, and I need turkey hunting to make it through all the rest of the days of the year. I sometimes will work 12 hour days to free up more time. I often think I should fire myself for the month of May.
