Default Early season or late season?

Just wondering what you guys and gals preferred. Me I've always seemed to have more luck early on in the season, but I've talked to plenty of hunters that swear late in the year is better for them. What about you all??

Like the first three weeks of november. That is usually the best in this area. It is all good though when yer out there in the woods.

Personally I prefere the late season.I like to really give it my all after rifle season.The bucks are really antsy,responds to rattling and grunting and the weather is cold,which I love.
I like the early season as well,just to keep me from going crazy

Surprisingly, I've always been more successful in the early season.

late, early season here is still very warm(80's), and the hunting generally gets much much better after x-mas, thats when i have killed all but one of my mounted deer, plus just about everybody else is staying at home watchin foosball

I like the mid to late season as well,I find that you see alot of doe's and fawn's during the early part of the season ,but I prefer to hunt big buck's .You see buck's during the early season as well ,they'rejust alot more active during the late season.

Didn't vote, I love both.

I love sitting over a freshly cut alfalfa field in September and being able to watch the fawns jump around and play with each other.

Then there's the late season when the bucks are fighting and chasing does.

They're both exciting in their own ways.

I prefer late season , I see more deer in general and there's a lot less competition . It also gives the does a few more weeks to fatten up on acorns .
