      It always starts on the Saturday closest to the 13th. The season will start on Nov 16th. This means the earliest date it will ever start is the 10th and the latest it will ever start is the 16th. **unless NG&P changes their rule about the 13th in the future.

    True. However next year thanksgiving is super late. Wonder how that will effect the dates. If any at all.

      It’s supposed to start the weekend closest to the 13th, but the 13th falls on a Wednesday next year, so not sure what they would do.
      Edit- 2013, the 13th was on a Wednesday, and the season started the 16th.

        Whenever it is set for, it will be the "peak of the rut" regardless.....

          Firearm deer season always ends the Sunday before Thanksgiving, so.... 2019 season would be Nov 16 -24, as Thanksgiving is on the 28th next year.

            I don't know if it is a rule or a law, but this is the closest to actual. Firearm season begins the Saturday closest to the 13th of November.
            Find a calendar, find the 13th of November, count the days to the previous Saturday then count the days to the following Saturday. Low number wins.
            In 2019 the 16th is closer to the 13th than the 9th.

              Yes, you are correct, I said closest weekend, but now I see closest Saturday is correct.

            Well from all of us "experts" you have a couple of choices. lol

            I would bet that NG&P can tell you exactly when it will be, so that you don't have to guess. I was/am under the assumption that it opens on the 2nd Saturday of November but if tjm is correct, that obviously is not the case.

            Good Luck with your vacation draw.

              Technically it’s not official unti the Commissioners actually set it, but I did happen to come accross this
