Change to the 4th and miss opening weekend of bowhunting? I could probably be talked into it I guess. Besides, just found out my wealthy neighbor whose land I hunt on just 'sold the farm' to someone who is also a major hunter. Looks like my bowhunting is in jeopredy anyways. Might as well go fishin!

Fasttrack, did you already vote the 20th and you are thinking about changing or did you vote for the 4th?

Cameraguy, I think he is saying he might have a tournament already scheduled for the 20th, so the 4th would be his choice.

I had a feeling there would not be a rock-hard consensus, but I think I can pick a lake and date this weekend.

I don't care what lake it is...White, Hardy, Paw Paw or Ovid...I'm good with that.  The date is the hard part.  I think Oct 4th is the obvious choice but that's because it is my only option.  I find it interesting that we are tied on lakes and dates at this point.  The date is tied because you can subtract "thedude's" vote of the 20th.  I guess we will see what happens in a couple more days.

My vote is for the 20th if it's NOT on Hardy (due to the other tourney there which I also hoped to fish). If it IS on hardy then I vote for the 4th. Is that as clear as mud? Bottom line: I will try my best to be there whichever date is chosen.

Okay, Mr. Kimmel.  I think it's time to pick a date and lake.  I need to know whether I am eating pig or going fishing.

Alright Dan...Oct 4th, White Lake.  ;D  It looks good to me.  Yes say the word and we can start the boater/non-boater sign up sheet.

Really needs to be the 20th.

It's just to hard to set a hook from a tree stand.

I hear ya Rick, but I look at it like this.  Bow hunting lasts 6 weeks and comes every year.  The DK Open last only one day and only comes twice a year.  There is plenty of time to bow hunt!  I also heard that there is some type of firearm hunting that ends right before bow opens?  If this is true, bad for bow hunters.

Yes, Cyrus, there is an antlerless-only gun season. I think it is the 18th-22nd. Will be interesting to see how that stirs up the woods prior to bowhunting. Nice way to fill the freezer though so ya can be a little more choosy during bow season if ya wish. Bottom line: there is deer hunting on both possible dates for the Open. But as you stated, there is lots of time to deer hunt. I also agree that it should be decided soon - I am already being pushed to make plans for upcoming weekends and am trying to keep both dates open as long as I can.....

Marc
P.S. - Are you considering fishing Rich's Charity event on Hardy on 20th? I am still looking to hook up with a partner....

The youth hunt is the 27 and 28th too,  so all kinds of hunting going on before the opening day of bow season.  Lots of time to hunt,  only one day for the fall DK open. 

I'm still pulling for the 4th we can't make the 20th at all.  We don't care what lake though.  Although I'm partial to Hardy.  Never been on white but I will go there if that's where it's at.
