Is nothing sacred? Federal law mandates that no migratory bird seasons can open prior to 9/1 and SC mandates that if a season opening date falls on a Sunday that the Saturday before will be the opener, except in the case of federal restraints, so I will have to wait until monday to shoot doves! Shooting doves on the saturday before labor day is a tradition that shouldn't be messed with. This happened 3 times in the 90's alone. My proposal is this: Since there are 365.25 days in a year, causing us to have a day added in february (leap year) so the calendar will work out in the long run, why don't we simply make the second (you know, 60 of 'em in a minute, etc., etc.) a little bit longer so that one calendar year=one timed year and do away with this leap year crap.
