many people out west can't comprehend the horrific pressure that deer get in the heavily populated areas of PA on saturdays. Traditionally, monday openers made it a choice: am I going to use that vacation day for opening day deer hunting, or am I one of those people who values something else as more important, like using it for sleeping off hangovers after Eagles SNF games. I always chose the deer hunting, and appreciated less people in the woods. The first week, deer would usually keep coming out during daylight hours. After the first Saturday and massive ****show that hordes of people turned deer season into, those natural patterns stopped, and it became a case of the deer holding tight unless they were getting pushed, or else coming out on their own after dark. So are the PAGC idiots going to allow sensible nighttime hunting now, to compensate for the disaster they will create? You can bet they wont. Doesn't matter if you have mega-expensive optics that could do the job. Everything they do is geared for the lowest common denominator, because that is their speed. So PA will become a see-nothing hunting state, or else a push-em-and-blast-away-at-the-fleeing-tails state, just like the FUdds want. At this rate, PA might as well import some PETA hipsters from Berkley to dictate hunting laws.
