Don't we all. Need to get those bucks fattened back up and hopefully not have to pay an arm and a leg to do it.

Get used to taking a Friday vacation day to make the long trips worth it.

Getting there Fri night late and having to leave Sunday am is the suck!

What smart said! I will make a day trip if I have too, but I'll even say that I like staying a minimum of 5-6 days. In the summer I do extactly what smart said and take a Friday and leave Sunday. But during season, if I go I try to always have 5-6 days of hunting. We have 7 hours one way too, but I don't view the drive as bad as some do. I am Usually riding with friends or family so just adds to the experience.

Dadgum, and I thought 4 hours was bad! Yeah the ride up isn't bad but going home is for the birds! It's all worth it though with the quality deer and guys on the lease! Good luck this year sir
