  1. On Long Island I've found the D.E.C. Law Enforcement Officers work hard are polite and very very helpful, from which tactic to which spots are better for what game animal and more I have nothing but respect for their efforts!

  3. Sincere condolences to his family, friends, and fellow countrymen. He served well and he will be missed. We're going to see very soon what the Republican side of Capitol Hill is really made of when the current President attempts to replace Justice Scalia. Another Progressive anti-Constitutionalist on the bench will not bode well for the future of our Republic. There are a number of very important cases scheduled to be heard before the next President is sworn in, most having to do with the legality of certain Executive Orders, and I don't think they can even proceed without a full bench. The Presidential election was going to make the next nine months a bumpy road in itself. This is going to make it a nightmare.

  4. I will be mentoring a young lady from NJ this year thanks to a good friend. She doesn't have anyone to take her so I volunteered to do so. I'm really looking forward to it as the last time I took a youth out was in 2012. I really enjoy introducing young hunters to the sport of hunting and especially to the sport of spring turkey hunting. The look on their face when they harvest a bird is priceless. How many of you will be taking a youth out this spring season?

  5. I do think they work hard. But they seem to be terribly understaffed. I like watching those shows too!

  6. This is extremely bad. Justice Scalia was what stood between the rabid libs on the bench, & the Constitution. The timing couldn't be worse. So called "republicans" haven't put up an honest fight against king obama yet, so who's to say they'll resist his liberal nominee? They won't, of course. They'll flail weakly at it & talk big, while really just folding & saying they had no choice. Wouldn't it be great if bernie wins, & sticks obama himself on the bench? This could be the end of America as we know it. Evil is surely afoot. God help us.

  7. Had meatloaf again with baked potatoes. Good hearty meal on this frigid night. Wife baked biscuits and we had strawberry shortcake for our Valentine's eve dinner since she has to work tomorrow. I scored some brownie points today too when I brought her home these.

  10. Goshawks are probably the most dangerous bird in North American. They are extremely defensive of their nests once the eggs have hatched. When I needed to go near their nest for research purposes, I would often carry an umbrella to give them a target that was not my head. I have talked to turkey hunters who have been buzzed by them. I also know of a couple of instances where nesting goshawks have been shot during May. One of those incidents happened a couple of years ago on public land along the Finger Lakes Trail in Chenango County. The hawk was well known to hikers. As far as I know, it never hit anyone. Back in the 90s, someone writing in a statewide publication was claiming goshawks were coming into hunter's turkey calls because they wanted to kill turkeys. If you know anything about goshawks, this is absurd. They are a bit smaller than a red-tailed hawk - see photo, gos on right. A gos coming in aggressively does so because a threat is too close to its nest. One time, a gos burst out of thick cover in my face, coming right at me. I did not see or hear it until it was about 30 feet away. Time to change my pants. They are actually both rare and hard to find. They find you when you are near their nest. Have any of you encountered goshawks acting aggressively during turkey season?

  11. My grandson and I went up to the adk. Outdoor show in Johnstown today. First time going to this one and was quite impressed. Not real big but some good deals on a variety of outdoor stuff. Even ran into a couple guy's I know. Started a subscription for NY outdoor News, picked up a few smallmouth jigs, a quaker boy double dog predator call and a few other odds and ends. And my grandson picked out a few things as well. It was a great way to spend a cold afternoon with him! We look forward to going back again next year!

  14. All the more reason to elect anyone but Bernie and Hillary. She said she would appoint Obama. Only chance we have is neither of them. But we could not even get rid of Cuomo when be strippdusofour rights. If this does not light a fire, nothing will. But of course no one wants to see the political posts and possibly learn something. End of rant.

  15. I can't imagine how any American firearm owner, or hunter, doesn't know who Scalia was. The man was the biggest defender and supporter of firearms and hunting this country has ever known. If you are clueless, you owe it to the man to look him up and find out who he was.

  27. I haven't seen much evidence of yarding here in Erie Co.(9h) Matter of fact, I haven't seen much evidence of deer gatherings PERIOD. Perhaps the are yarded somewhere I am not aware of, but they really seem to be spread out more this winter compared to years past around here. Here's shot I got back in 2013 while shed hunting in East Aurora. This was probably only half of them I could fit in the frame out in the field at one time. I remember another herd of equal size at the other end of this field at the same time.

  28. Back in my early 20's I used to use and owl call as a locater. It worked pretty well. Once I was in the general area for the first sit I would do the old "Who cooks for you...Who cooks for you." while it was still dark. Does anyone still use one? What are your thoughts?

  29. The guy who was the main game warden around here for many years was legendary. He would lay on his belly in the mud all night long to make a bust. I was checked perhaps a dozen times by this guy and never once did I have any idea he was around until he jumped out of a bush or popped out from behind a tree. He worked hard and must have loved his job. I don't even know the name/names of the local fish cops nowadays, but I guarantee you that back when he was working as a game warden, EVERYBODY who hunted or fished in southern Steuben County knew HIS name..

  33. Obama is certainly going to try to slip someone in, but the senate can stop it. McConnell has said he would fight to prevent it, but his track record is not good when it comes to opposing Obama. A recess appointment is the likely scenario but that's not permanent. If Obama can install another anti-constitutional justice we could see a rewrite of the 2nd amendment, and it won't be pretty for the country as we know it.

  36. Yes I have, once by a goshawk and a couple of times by Cooper's hawks. There is a nest on state land near here where the DEC has put up signs near it warning of a goshawk nest. As far as hawks attacking turkeys, I once saw a red tail attack an adult hen turkey. He dove and hit her right in the middle of the back, then peeled away. No harm done as far as I could tell, but she was one pissed off turkey.

  40. C'mon up here Biz, I will take you Spring turkey hunting. Public land so it is what it is. I have no younger people in my family or the g/f's that are interested in hunting. If it's not Twitter or Face book they want no part of it.

  48. I have a young man interested in turkey hunting. As soon as we get decent weather we will spend some time sighting in and going over the process. I got him a slate call a couple of months ago, I hope he has been driving his parents nuts with it!
