Snarfangel: If they eat what they kill, they are better than this kid:/"...you might be a blobneck."
charmed1782: Ummm.....every school district here has the first day of deer gun hunting season off.
JimmyCarter'sSecondTerm: Yeah, your best chance for a big buck is in the first few days of the season. If you waited until the weekend unemployed jerkoffs would get all the good deer.
Meet Us at the Stick: If I remember correctly, it's that way in Pennsylvania.At least, it used to be that way when I lived there.A looooooooong time ago.
The exception: Triopia, which saw no spike in absences. Students who miss school Friday would not be able to participate in the Trojans' big football game against Salt Fork Saturday. Triopia is one win away from the state championship game.
Fluffy_the_cactus: When I was in school, about 3/4 of the student population got what we referred to as the "camouflage flu".
Dirtball: This is the way it is in Mid-Michigan.
weatherwax: Are you from Mid-Michigan, if so where? I'm just curious to see if you may have heard of the backward, honkey, redneck town village that I grew up in.
ianjames: And to all of the ones calling it redneck, heres my impression of you: I dont understand what people do outside of a big city, how can they survive without starbucks and taxes?
NotoriousW.O.P: John Murtha was right!
Dirtball: weatherwax: Are you from Mid-Michigan, if so where? I'm just curious to see if you may have heard of the backward, honkey, redneck town village that I grew up in.Midland
weatherwax: Midland eh? Aren't we hoity toity with our Dow Chemical money? ;)
mr.fisher: SUBBY HEREWow. I had no idea that it was so common for this. I don't see anything wrong with high school students skipping a day of class to open hunting season. Mmmmmmmmmm venison. But I don't think classes should actually be canceled. But whatever. It's just one day.Also, to weatherwax, Martin Luther King, Jr. day is a national holiday and all schools close. And banks.
mr.fisher: Also to all the angry people. I am originally from Jacksonville, where this newspaper is. I lived in White Hall, pop. 3000, where North Greene is. I live in Galesburg, where my boss regularly skips work to hunt, and will sometimes come to work with a carcass in his truck. I understand and was simply making an easy redneck joke. So take it easy hunters, and go shoot me some lunch. Boss owes me deer jerky.
