Hunters rely on holidays to mark certain points during hunting season, but there are more reliable

Labor Day is often an inaccurate way hunters use to measure when deer season is upon us.

While Labor Day could fall on any given day, it doesn’t always hold up to the saying “whitetails go hard-horn around labor day.”

The saying references that male deer have shed their velvet from their rack, and the bone white rack is a sign to begin hunting.

While it may not be exact, it’s close, and holidays are often used by hunters to mark important seasons.

Memorial Day is often referenced as the time for fawns to be born, but fawns are born from early May through June.

Veteran’s day is also used as a reference to peak season, however, Veteran’s day also changes on the calendar much like Labor Day, and what really works to determine peak season is paying attention to the phases of the moon.

While these holidays work as general markers, they aren’t entirely reliable for hunters.

Paying attention to patterns from past years as well as the lunar phase can help to give a better idea of when things like peak seasons will happen.
