  1. Not ready to eat my tags and headed out into the woods this weekend. How have you guys felt about late season hunts. Any advice besides food source? Are the morning or evening hunts best or should I tough it out with a all day sit. Thanks guys Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hows it going guys. I always seem to have this problem every year.. when is the predicted rut dates this year for New York and what the best way to hunt it. Are you guys doing all day Sits or splitting the day up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. How is it going guys I was just curious on how you use doe estrus ( liquid form on wicks) during the deer season to your advantage. How would you use the wind to get the scent to benefit in relation to where I’m sitting on my treestand. Hope this made sense thank you again guys for the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello guys, so I was curious what you guys do in order to keep your feet warm in the more brutal moths of the season where an all day stay is a must. Nothing cuts my stay short except cold feet ( or hands) Any specific brands of boots/socks you go with? Any layering systems ? Thanks guys Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good morning guys. So I went up to the top of public land where I have a couple trail cams right by a saddle of the mountain. The cams picked up only doe but a lot of them. The area seems to be heavily used by them but no buck. The cams where there from July to end September. So basically am asking is this still a good place to set up for the season? Thanks guys Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That’s what I was thinking of doing possibly doing (the area is on public land that was logged a few years back) .. the clearing has a awesome watering hole and apple trees around it. The high (and I mean high grass/vegetation ) is full of deer trails running to the watering hole to the edge of the thick wood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I always hear that’s the case but how would you hunt something that’s thick that doesn’t offer good shooting range for a bow. Could be a real amateur question but how does someone set up in the thick? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Man just like you said boots on ground really told me that even tho the topo map showed some good stuff the actual terrain was impenetrable. This hurts because I was “sure” of it. I’m not going to lie my moral took a beating today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok... I hope I make sense with this post... I’m going to hunt public land that’s attached to my private land ( the private sector is crazy pressured by the neighbors). I did a little research on reading and understanding topo maps to use the public land to my advantage (see attached photos of topo and satellite images). And here is what I was planning. I was going to hunt a water source then realized it was super low on the hill and near the back road... then realized there was a decent saddle by the top of that hill which connects to surrounding private land and another saddle to the right of that ( indicated by my drawn arrow). Now I know wind thermals plays a big role in this but I was just curious what you guys thought about this set up. I was planning on setting a tree stand both high up by either saddle and one low by the water source and try and get and early season and early gun hunt in on either one of those stands depending on wind . Should I try and hunt high in the morning and low at night because of raising and dropping thermals. How would you guys hunt this or do you think I should just scrap the idea and try something else. I know a lot more goes into this but I hope I made sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Goodmorning Gentleman, I am a resident of Brooklyn New York ( about a 3 hour drive to my hunting location) and work as a local 3 electrician that’s only allowed 2 weeks worth of vacation a year. Now the question is what weeks/days out of the hunting season are a MUST to be in the woods this year so I can put in for my vacation days. I guess the peak of the rut? or is this something we don’t know yet. I hunt the 4w region of New York . Thanks for the help guys Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I hunt the 4w region, keep an eye out for my somewhat newbie question posts guys. Thanks in advance to everyone on here that’s going to help me out this season. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just wanted to say hi and that I look forward to learning a lot from you guys Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
