I just go the worse news a man excited to go elk hunting could get. My boss told me I can't take the week off I had planned for Elk hunting! All the other weeks are booked with other stuff. This is not happening to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before I started this job I marked their calendar and said, "I'm gone these weeks". Depending on your situation you may be stuck.

I was going to go the week of September 8-15th but now I will just go the 15th-22nd. I can go the first two weeks too I just had a baby though and was being nice to the wife for going later. I just thought I had some wedding or something that last week. Oh well last year I think the rut was closer to the end anyways.

My boss tried that once... I told him the only reason I work is so that I can afford to hunt. If I can't hunt when I want, then I don't really need this job. Comprende?

Honestly my bosses are really good about everything and If I would have remember that one due date I would have left the week before probably and will just do that in years to come. Maybe I will do opening week and the last week too and get 2 weeks of hunting in!

Living to hunt pretty much sums up my life. Try missing the whole season once.... I won't be hunting until December....

I am sure you will figure something out.

Darin, your comment takes the cake! I will save that one just in case my job after I am done with Uncle Sam tries to stiff me :)

I don't know, if I had to choose between the dates you had and the dates your taking now I would choose the later (and have :) ). That's prime time usually around here.

I had a boss that tried aswell.... took him a while to figure out why I wasnt there when he got to work opening day.

Couple years later a different manger tried to tell me I couldnt go a few days before the opener. A couple guys higher up the chain explained it didnt matter if he approved or not I was going to go.... He ended up approving my time off. Was easy to walk away back then, little harder now that its not just me.

I like hunting...no I love hunting but I sure like my house and food and clothes etc etc. Good start for another thread on how many times have you had to miss a season....never mind that sounds reallyyyyy sad

That is why I am not worried now. I just thought my brother in-laws wedding was the next weekend, but he was smart and its not till after season. ;) So I am okay now. Just about went nuts for an hour though before I found that out. Who knows I may fill my tags before I even leave. I have some real close local spots that have good elk and deer signs so far. I am checking a few cameras tonight though.

Have any of you filled tags hunting the weekends before a big hunt?
