Default What to do....Decision about when to leave to go hunting.

I am scheduled to go on a 6 day hunt around Encinal and we were originally supposed to leave this Saturday morning. My buddy that is going with me can't leave on Saturday because he forgot that his son, who is going with us, is in a wedding so we decided to on Monday morning. We got to talking and then we decided to leave Sunday morning and now the plans have changed again because my buddys dad asked him to take him hunting this weekend to their lease and he won't be able to leave until Monday morning now. The rut seem to be pretty good down South now and I'm anxious to get down there while the weather is still pretty cold and deer are rutting. I understand that family comes first and we all need to make exceptions and change our plans to accommodate them.

I'm trying to decide if I should head down there on Saturday by myself and just meet them down there on Monday. Just wondering what some of you would do. Thanks!

Go on saturday. Best of both worlds. You get some solitude and good hunting in. Then you get some great company when you’re ready for it.

My dad would understand if I had a hunt already booked. For one next can his son drive if so I would buy my kid a map and tell pops I'm sorry this has been planned and leave with you.

Last if I was your friend I would understand you not wanting to wait on me.

No matter what god luck and enjoy.

My buddy and I go on a hunting trip every year, it's feels kind of strange leaving early on the trip with out him, but things always change.

Is there a certain day you have to be back home? Would your hunt be cut short?

What if you tag out before he gets there?

Don't have to be home until Sunday evening and if I'm lucky I could just hang out with him until he leaves. I just got an invite from another friend to go to Mexico with him on January 10-14. I would cut one trip short to make another one. I doubt I will make the trip to Mexico but it's very tempting, my wife gave me the green light to do both.

First of all, you are getting way too many opportunities to go hunting.
Speaking as someone who is going thru withdrawals ( first year in over 20 that I'm not on a lease) I say go where and when you want. Especially if the wife is giving you the green light. You owe it to her. Now quit being selfish and go make her happy!
