  1. In-laws head back to FL tomorrow after spending a week here. Will finally get to go out for a solid 5-6 days starting Thursday. Plan on still hunting, created this cheat sheet to pick spots to go to based on the wind. Daughter started us out strong with a freezer filler last week.. hoping to tag one with the muzzy and then get pickier after that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Leupold has a fixed x2 and x4 that very light, sub 10oz and don’t have exposed turrets. If you are active duty military they offer a great discount. I run a Leupold 2-8x33 on my muzzleloader and 2-10x36 on my 7mm-08. They have served me well and given me no reasons to think about changing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. My daughter went out the other night in purple sweatpants and shot her buck. Her scent control regiment includes nail polish and wax warmers in her room lol. I do though have my stuff in a tub, more for organization and clutter control, scent control is a minor side benefit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Daughter got her spike last night. It’s her first NY deer and third in her storied hunting career, 3 days, 3 shots, 3 deer. She questions why I come home empty handed so much [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My father is coming into town at the end of September for 2 weeks and we are going to do some fishing. We are considering making a trip up to the Salmon River and I want to catch fish, not floss them. Does anyone have success float fishing with some egg sacs or worms? Or is it just a bunch of flossing?
  6. I was out grabbing a trail camera this afternoon and bumped a young buck from his bed. It was a perfect setup for him with regards to cover and topography. Being my first year “scouting”, it was neat to finally see a bed in person setup just like they talk about on all the youtube videos. The bed itself was under a patch of pines, which with the current stormy weather helps block the wind. To his back uphill was a blowdown that hid him pretty good. In front of him he was overlooking a drop off and below him to his left was a small stream. My trail camera had been up since April and I didnt hunt in there this season. I dont think anyone did. There is a nice doe group and a couple 6-8 points that walked by my camera during daylight hours in season. As well a pretty good size black bear. I am gonna do another scouting trip in a month or two when the snow subsides (burned about a 1000 calories hiking 2.6 miles according to my watch!) And hopefully locate a few more beds and then hunt it in the fall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. In for the morning in PA.. first time in area just sat over 1st fresh sign, probably a night scrape but it will do… meeting stepfather at noon to sit along a clearcut for the pm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Bucks moving in 6K this morning… have some new bucks on camera and in daylight… of course its on a workday lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Just had a pheasant fly right by my head… being chased by a hawk.. pretty cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. In super early.. wow 800yds through the Oriskany Flats is equivalent to about 10 miles on dry land lol.. what a workout! Tons of sign back in here but no trees to get in, no shooting lanes! Oh well.. Im not doing that direct path through the swamp again That means Ive got 3.7 miles back to the truck.. 2 of which I am going to do my best Elmer Fudd Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Guy in PA did a study with 150 trail cameras.. 2 years ago it was really warm early Nov and there was hardly any movement. Soon as a cooler day came, boom daytime movement. Ive taken the last week off strictly because of the high temps.. tomorrow is going to be 18 degrees cooler than today, I will be in 6K with my rifle and a doe tag in my pocket.

  12. Rolling Old School today, gonna still hunt with the muzzy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I just ordered some Hawke Frontier EDX 8x42… military discount came out to just around $400… they won birding bino of the year so I figure that translates to a good woods hunting performance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This one is coming down to the wire Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
