  1. Is it still as a Wolc special even if I didn’t harvest the oysters or take a chest girth measurement??? First deer from the new climber. Setting up in the acorns within range of the field edge worked out last night. And the best part… I skipped this mornings hunt and slept in! Sorry @Lomax!

  4. Pulled a couple of cards on the way to the stand. Kinda windy and nasty but I got a couple of pics to warm me up. Think I might call the guy "[email protected]*k" which is what I said when I first saw them...

  6. Just got a text from my friend he went to check scrapes real quick he joked he would see his shooter because he forgot his bow. Well he's standing 65yrds from him with it walking his way and the only way out is right into the field he's in and he doesn't want to bump it. When I mean big it's this guy.

  7. Hunted this guy for several years. Came close. Most notably the year he was killed when he was on the decline losing 20-30”. Had a ruptured disc in my back and hunted a short stand. Sat until I locked up and couldn’t take the pain at like 3ish. I made it halfway to truck and had to lay down and rest. I pushed it too far. While dealing with the pain and general crappy state of affairs, my phone dings and he goes by that stand while I’m sitting in misery about 400 yards away and couldn’t do a thing about it. The plot image is the image I am speaking to. Had him nailed. But alas…

  9. Someone should have picked me. Figured I would sit in the woods last night and clear my mind. Shooting this buck wasn’t the brightest idea though. Didn’t find him and get him out and hung till 3am and left for work at 5 am… Hopefully I can get all the family stuff every one to my uncles funeral this week and maybe sneak down to KY next week for three or four days hunting.

  10. Last 15 minutes of stand time last night was a big ramp up in activity. This spot had about 5-6 acres of thick bedding brush hogged that bordered us this off season and we suspected a decrease in daylight visits to the food source was due to bedding being done further away. I had a 2 year old come by at 10 yards inside the timber and my partner had what appeared to be a good buck working a scrape on the other side of a brush line only 30 yard away from him. Wind switch with a single gust and he got scented. One of our shooters however, did give up a tell, as my partner saw him across the field only 75 yards from me, but I couldn't see the buck due to the lay of the field edge. Where the buck entered the field confirmed he is bedding in a hedge row that is about 20 yards wide and close to some houses. Thankfully we have a prehung near there that I am going to try to sit tonight with perfect wind and access. His field entry was about 45 yards away so I'll need to be ready. New 2 and 3 yr old bucks are showing up on cams in past 48 hours in nearly every property we hunt. Signs of the times. Still at dark, but they seem to be moving a bit more.

  11. Would love to see your pics or a story about a specific deer that you were never able to seal the deal with . This guy was from when I first closed on some property ,I deployed one cam ,and hunted another property .Even after checking cams and finding this guy on it ,I didn’t hunt it much .That ,I kind of regret .Last pic I got of him was mid December ,5 years ago .I’ve killed some nice deer on the same property ,but never seen him again .

  17. Buck down . hit him with my Chevy truck on the way here …. Saw him running through yards on the other side of the road , I braked just in case then he committed to crossing the road wtf .Braked more moved over , BAM! He hit driver side fender / front , slide up the A post over the cab and would have landed in the bed, but there’s a locking metal cover he landed on! I pull in a driveway grab flashlight , no buck ,gone . Only damage is driver side mirror and bed cover is pushed in , in one corner . On stand seeking revenge on all deer !!!

  18. Love this picture of him... He gained mass last year. Have seen him with my own eyes 4 times... Once at 30 with no reasonable shot. No cam pics yet this year, but I'm hoping he still roams!

  19. This one still stings... Hunted this buck for 3 years. He was in my head and every move I made was trying to figure out how to cross paths with him to get my opportunity! He was the only buck I was going to settle for! His demise was getting kicked out on a drive down the road during gun season to a stander that wasn't from the area and had no history with the buck... Great video of him working a scrape https://photos.app.goo.gl/EDSDr9CN2QgvgFcS6

  20. Last year I picked him up on cams numerous x. All at night. Never showed in day or cams in day. No gun zone. Have cams there now but guessing he perhaps died of old age.

  23. If you guys have iphones, there's a simple way. I use this for years. You put SD card into adapter, plug into your phone. Import all, then delete all. Now SD card is empty and pop back into camera. It takes under 1 minute to import and delete all the pics. Then you can go through them on your phone at your own leisure. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-lightning-to-sd-card-camera-reader-white/4803100.p?skuId=4803100&ref=212&loc=1&extStoreId=331&ref=212&loc=1&ds_rl=1268655&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpNDh4IbU8wIVUQaICR2RqwuFEAQYAiABEgIn-vD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

  28. Went out last night with my son for his first night out yote hunting. Nothing at stops 1 and 2. 3rd set i was asked to come to because the women watched a yote take one of her chickens a few nights earlier. Setup behind thier house and started calling. After the first call ended we had a pair sound off to our right and a group out infront. To say my son was pumped is a understatement. I had the dogs going for probably 10mins before the 1st one showed. The setup was perfect and the yote was coming straight in to us. Just before my son was ready to shoot i told him to hold off, 2 more yotes entered the field and were following the same path as the first. Thats when it got messy, the 1st yote decided it had stayed long enogh and wanted to leave, i got on one and my son said he was following the other. I shot 1st and the 2 yotes take off, for the 2nd time this seaon i had to swap mags, 1st shot of the 2nd mag dropped a yote. As a side note i had just resighted in my rifle with new thermal on it. The last hunt took 10 shots and dropped 1, it ended up 6" low...not sure why but resighted in and was good. After 6 shots to get this dog maybe not good? My son shot twice both misses but loved the action. So sometime this week ill be punching paper again with the thermal. Yote ended up being a mangy pup the homeowner has seen around her home.

  31. While I’m happy you didn’t reproduce as well ,did you ever think your kids may very well have gone on to solve the very problems you’re concerned about ? Our children have been a true blessing and joy , and have done much good along the way, from volunteering in an orphanage in Haiti to building Habitat for Humanity homes . Oh and Trump voters !

  32. Getting caught up with a lot of updates. On September 20th the Capital District Sportsman Center held a deer hunting 101 Q and A session live on Facebook. They brought in some local experienced individuals for a wealth of knowledge when it comes to deer hunting. This panel ranged from a Region 4 DEC biologist, a local ECO, retired hunt Ed instructor, to NDA volunteers (yours truly Local public hunting access, deer senses, deer behavior/patterns related to hunting, regulations, emergency situations, and go-to gear to have with you in the field.

  34. Hunting from the ground on public land tonight. I didn’t have time to get to my hunting land so I went pulling cards from some places closer to home and found some good sign that I’m now hunting. Wind isn’t ideal but only option here unfortunately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  37. Happy with the increased trail cam activity over the last 2-3 nights! Bucks have really been on their feet and showing up in different areas. Unfortunately, 95% of pics have been under the cover of darkness. Sometimes within just 15-20min of daylight though, so we're getting there! Most times, the bucks are alone, but am seeing 3-4 bucks traveling together too. No bucks with does, trailing behind does, or showing any interest yet. No scrapes, nor are they showing any interest in my mock scrapes yet.

  39. The electric cars are a long way from clean. Biggest issue is storage of energy. Fossil fuels are currently more efficient and viable. I do not like the mandates for renewable energy, but I do like alternatives. Competition is good for consumers. If government would stay out of the business, all Americans would benefit from combustion engines, and electric motors. Mandates are going to drive the cost up of both fossil fuels, and renewable energy. If left up to private sector fossil fuels will phase out on their own. Alot more "now" power can be created with electric. Fossil fuels currently are more of a stable power.

  40. Every cell cam company has and will have server issues. Expect it - don't get caught up in the Amazon mindset of a drone delivering goods to your lap in 3 minutes or less. When it goes down just chill out for a bit and glass or something. Don't over rely. Growing pains. Servers are going down more this year because every cam company is selling more cells than planned. Regular cam sales are falling. It will take a few years for them to get stable IMO.

  43. The smallmouth bass we’re hitting jigs pretty good out on the lake. I ended up with 8, all between 12 and 14”, before it started to drizzle. The water temperature must still be in the 60’s because they are still fighting hard and getting lots of air. Couldn’t find the 22 incher I am looking for, but I still have 7 more days. Now, I am back in my pop up blind until 1/2 hour past sunset hopeing the “driveway doe” that I spooked this morning shows up.

  44. Yesterday's haul. Super nice day to fish on Champlain. Calm, upper 60s, not too sunny. My buddy is a guide and sent me some numbers to check, so I can't take full credit. I did manage to catch them once I reached the waypoint. Baited my own hook and everything!
