I hunt rain or shine after work and sometimes whil im at work.i did like you did a couple of years when I didn't have any work but it takes the enjoyment out off it after a while.i remember digging when it didn't bring as much money and we done it moore for the sport of it or something to do.my wife says I go to much sometimes but she likes the greenbacks.

Lucky for me bow season always opens on Oct 15th, so the transition away from digging is pretty easy. But I always keep a large screwdriver in my hunting pack just in case I walk up on some. :)
