October 1st thru January 15th here.

Unfortunately, youth gun hunts and blackpowder season encroach upon that some, and especially in what I consider the best part of the season. Mid to late October. And, you have to wear orange (either hat or vest) if bowhunting and one of those seasons are going at the same time. Grrrrrrrrrrrr

I don' t begrudge the youth or bp hunts. Just wish they' d make it for a different time of the year since October was traditionally a bow only month until a few years ago.

Darn it, I' m rambling. Sorry.

Here in Michigan, the season starts Oct. 1st. I was going to have to wait all the way until the 3rd, but I just figured a way to get out of work two days early. BOOYAAA!!!

Danny, i hear what your sayin. I mean, the hunts are good i guess, but they do kinda go during some good bowhunting. One thing i wish they wouldnt have done is extend the rifle season. Thats really going to screw up the second(or the use to be second) bow season. But, not gunna stop me from goin to the woods.
