I thought I would start this thread to see what type of time people are putting into supporting our hunts. This will help me understand the weekly ranking better and how hard to actually make the hunts Smile  


I myself (REZ325) only get 1 to 2 hours on a good night. With my work always consuming more of my time, followed by my Family, Aleah's soccer then this site, finding time to hunt has become ever increasingly harder.

I would safely say 7 to 10 hours a week total. That was not enough last week, as you can see I did not turn in and entry Sad

Dave you have been only hunting with use for a short while now, you have placed towards the top a couple of times, I think you are doing super! After this hunt, we will go into a 4 week rifle hunt, at 60 hours a week, your name should pop up in the winners box I think at least 1 time.

Don't give up, your doing just fine Smile

I am retired from work but not from life.....lol most weeklys I hunt about 4 hours per night so
4 times 7 = 28 a week
Last week was an exception I probably spent more like 6 because of the extremely difficult method
of hunting.  but I believe 28 to 30 hrs per weekly tournament is about average for me and like you say DH
I am not doing real well but I am having a great time.  this is an excellent group of hunters and the site is
the only one currently doing weeklys so hang in there your time will come.

Me about an hr. to an hr. and a half per day  with my work schedule ( and sometimes I divide that with map making ), and I only have one computer so I have to share with the wife. Sometimes on the week-end I have to get up at 5:00 AM to get some hunt time in.  LOL

I too am retired and as you all can guesse I spend too much time at the computer.
My hunt time would exceed 40 hrs a week but not all on the weekly hunts

I hunt maps I am testing, The Hunter and other dh2005 maps just for fun.
But I spend most time making maps, about another 40 Hours A week.
This weeks map represents about 65 hours of work, some only take 10 or 12.

Lat week I spent 9 hours straight on Wednesday to get my entry together .
last night 4 hours to get a distance and weight and the rest I will have to spend looking for a WR Roe.
Havnt seen one yet.

Who knows how much longer that will take.

I figure out what is needed to be up near the middle to top and that is my goal.
Sometimes do better , sometimes worse.
this week a 380 plus distance, a 65lb or better weight and 73 0r better rack.
When they are in the bag I'm done.

As long as I am enjoying the weekly hunt I will compete.
When it gets to Heavy I move to other hunt related things.

The most important thing is that I enjoy what time I spend.
And remember, no matter how big that deer is that you killed  ...on my map ...to beat me.. HALF OF IT IS MINE
