Default Day light savings good or bad?

Well with day light savings here I just have one question... Is it good or bad to you? I mean I get an extra hour to hunt in the mornings, but going out in the afternoon on a week day is now nearly impossible... I use to be able to leave the office at 3pm and in the woods by 4pm... Now the 3pm is the old 4pm and I am not in woods to the old 5pm (if that makes sense) and it is to late... Just not to sure if it is a good thing or bad for hunters.

Yeah I can't go after work anymore either!! [:@] I think I'll try and sneek in a few morning hunts before heading to the office though. I've been seeing most of my deer in the evenings but ya never know this time of year!

I'll be able to hunt some more mornings.....IF I don't get pinned in. Evening hunts on work days are over for the most part.

Same here. Looks like mornings only for the next two weeks (weekend excluded, of course).

It means I have to hunt local farms and not the big woods I've been hunting. It means sightings will be fewer and winds a bigger factor. There's still a chance for a nice one.

Another issue in Ohio is that this coming weekend is our last good shot. The weekend after that is youth gun season, so if we dare step in the woods we need Hunter Orange on. Then Regular Gun season is on our heels!

It's real bad when your wife resets the alarm clock to Pm andit's the AM and you set the alarm for 4:30 am andthe alarmnever goes off. You wake up at 7:30 on a perfect morning.[:@][:'(]
