    If I remember right, its some time in October. You should be able to call IDNR to find out for shure.

    Hey whisperer,
    Have you thought about a ground blind, just tree it up and youll blend right in.
    Either that or just sit in some laydown trees. Dont know how bad your knee is but it may be worth a try.

    wilson. talley said the end of this month but that don't seem right. i remember going last year in october with towls around my head and a coat on. i went saturday with sweats and a tee so it seems like either oct 15th or the end of oct. actually nov 1st sounds correct.
