UPHunter, we are bowhunters - might as well ask us how many days we won't be hunting.
Also, you didn't specify - are you talking about deer only?

I hunt the entire season but because of work constraints (and not being allowed to hunt Sundays in PA) I checked off 16+ days.

That about sums up my season as well.

In south Florida our open archery season is from 9/3/05 to 10/2/05 this year. Iplan tohunt all of the weekends and holidays, which equals 11 days. Then we have apermit only archery season in one unit only from 11/12/05 to 11/27/05 and 12/22/05 to 1/02/06. I have a permit for the period 11/12/05 to 11/20/05, and will try to get permits for as many of the remaining days as possible. Depending on how many I get, I may hunt and additional 5 to 10 days during these periods. Then we have a second open archery season from 11/28/05 to 12/21/05. I plan to hunt at least all 6 weekend days during this period. That's a total of 22 to 27 days of archery. I hunt dawn to dusk every day I'm out, so that's a lot of time in the woods.

I am also planning a 2 day archery hunt in N.C. during October, and a 2 day hog gun hunt in FL during December. I build upspousal credit with my wife all the rest of the year to cash in during hunting season. It seems to work for me. Haven't done the muzzleloader thing yet, but hmmm it wouldadd a few weeks of possibilities in October.

I used to hunt 4 days each season. I am hoping to hunt for 2 full days every weekend throughout the season. That makes alot.
