you are probably right, but they sure deserve them. I notice too, veteran weekend seems to draw in a lot of first timers. If a guy served , or gal... and they may be going through some stuff and have an opportunity to get out and possibly be exposed to a new healthy hobby, cant knock that at all.Youth hunts should be 100% youth focused. I also think they should cut off at 15.
Veterans don't need extra days. I hunt them, but don't think we need them.
