  1. Here is an updated version he did last year: http:// Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Tethrd’s YouTube page has a vid that shows you how to DIY their sys strap. Here is a short vid on Greg’s ch (G2 outdoors) where he demos the how he uses a diy kydex hook for his bow hanger. I use these for all but my bag and tube caller. He has a vid on his channel on how to make the hooks too. ( http://[/url] ) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I used the same for a couple years and they work great. To minimize noise and weight I shifted to one Plastic S-biners to hang a tube call and for everything else I have diy kydex hooks attached. I love this setup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The rustling in the leaves that you swear has to be the 87th squirrel encounter for the morning but turns out to actually be a deer this time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hello Everyone, My current 2 Hunting partners have family emergency obligations keeping them occupied till at least Dec. I live in NYC so unfortunately don’t own a car. I usually ride out w/ Partner that lives near me or take the LIRR the night before to meet up out by hunt location. Happy to assist with your hunt (or even do my own thing once parked up) and of course pitch in for gas etc. Im a vet in my 40s that just started learning to hunt 3yrs ago. Have all my own gear, tags etc just not a car to post my parking permit in. I usually saddle hunt. Due to work schedule I’m mostly a weekend hunter. I have a few 1C public land locations I’m pretty used to but always willing to try new spots. 1C is where my DMP tags are assigned. It’s killing me that I missing out on early season. Let me know if you interested. Thanks for reading and have a great day -Chris Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. haha since I specifically posted this in the Region 1 forum I wasn't really expecting all the "you should hunt upstate" type replies but no worries... hahaha. But if any of you upstate want to host a couple of new hunters that live in NYC for a long weekend to show us the upstate ropes let me know. It comes with the territory of public, was just wondering if anyone had relatable stories in the area... Likely won't be as bad once the weather gets a little colder and we get some snow down here.
  7. Most of the areas that are dense there that I seen deer run into and I have no idea how to hunt look like this pic (that’s 6-8ft of thorns). Only place to set up and wait for them to come out is the trail trees which you have to be 50ft off trail. So the areas that don’t look like this are packed with hunters (especially when more hunters than legally allowed). At this particular park the hiking trails are plenty. The distance between most of the parallel trails is only 100-250ft. Yeah totally part of the experience and not mad at anyone. Was just a frustrating day. I did get to see a guy take a doe from a ghost blind for the first time which was cool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Went out on Saturday to Wildwood. Got in early and found one legal hunting parking spot still left and got in before sunrise. The weird part is it seems, with the parking allowed, there should only be 12 hunters on the whole property yet I bumped into more than 20 fellow hunters during the day. Assuming people are having more than 2 per car, walking in from local neighborhoods or parking illegally. At one point while trying to find a new spot/tree to set up, after getting frustrated the hikers kept walking up into my spot while going around the blockade closing of a certain trail, I seen 6 hunters in almost a straight line about every 30-50yds. lol Seen a lot of deer but mostly all were on the run after being spooked by other hunters or the never ending hikers and joggers that came out Saturday (it was a beautiful day), some of which were stopping thru the middle of the woods off trail. When I was spotted most were nice enough to back out and go around back to the trail but ended up having 2 separate groups come right up to my tree to ask me questions (in a friendly way) "get anything yet?" "cool, what's that thing called?" (i'm in a saddle w/ DRT ropes), "what do you do if you have to go pee?" (haha, i laughed at this one from a younger kid with his family),. I even had a deer spooked off when a jogger ran by on the trail with headphone and yelled over "Good Morning, good luck!" ..... haha, what can you do, most were all so friendly. Near sunset though I did have a, seemingly drunk, couple on a sunset hike come out to me to "inform me" that "hunting here is illegal" and "this is a protected animal sanctuary" (lmao) they then proceeded to run off-trail thru the woods and blow out that section for any of the other hunters in that area. Walking back to the car I felt like that day was like trying to hunt in times square..... I'm now looking forward to the snow more than ever. You guys ever have days like that on Long Island Public too?
  9. by this statement I'm guessing you are not a fellow veteran as it shows you have a complete misunderstanding of what West Point is, likely based on movies and not on first hand experience, am I correct?
  10. To all my fellow Veterans, I hope you have a peaceful and relaxing day. If you also happen to be out there hunting then I hope you have a day full of solid opportunities. Good luck and get a monster. -ChrisW
  11. can you direct me to where a urban vs rural tax collection comparison is listed so I can further educate myself on that? umm, NY state is about 19.5 million, NYC alone is about 8.4 million and that does not include any other urban area in the whole state like Albany. Do you have a site that has a population density comparison that supports your statement or are ya just pulling statements from a convenient rectal orifice? I'd actually be interested in reading the details.
  12. haha I actually misread your post count... you actually have 327 total posts... LMAO.. you are over 80% (approaching 90%) political posts hahaha
  13. hope it ends up being the weird start of a good neighborly friendship going forward
