  1. Co-vid19 update next week we will be burning all the body's in the streets. Sites will be posted on your counties web page. So look for a site near you! After the burning the will be a wake at your town or city hall with free beer and hot dogs for the first 50 people there. all others will receive 1 free roll of toilet paper.
  2. Hey can anyone tell me why there is a run on TP because of Co-vid19. Did I miss the Memo that it gives you the shits. I have a case of TP for sale for 1000 dollars or a one week whitetail hunt.
  3. My turn to chime in on Co-vid19. I do take Co-vid19 seriously but no more than the flu. There are only two differences between Co-vid19 and the flu. One it seems to be its more contagious and there at this time no vaccine for it. The flu in the US alone in 2018-19 killed 61200 people(CDC) and 42.9 million were infected with the flu. Think of how many would of die from the flu in the US if there was no vaccine for it. Co-vid19 so far there is about 100000 cases and around 4000 deaths world wide. This is not the plague. Here is something to ponder with over 80% of the cases of co-vid19 being mild and with symptoms similar to the flu or a cold. How many of us who were sick this winter and did not go to the doctor or were not checked for co-vid19 have not already had it.
  4. When you gotta you gotta to go!
  5. There are a few places in or around Monroe county there's GCL, Rochester Brooks (a little pricey) but a good place, Brockport CC ,Bergen and Mumford and North Star. Are but a few
  6. I would go on a cruise in the summer to Alaska that's the only cruise I would go on.
  7. there will be a waterfowl meeting at DEC region 8 HQ on Sunday FEBRUARY 16 at 930am some of the topic's will be last season assessment and the DEC's 5 year plan for waterfowl seasons
  8. The DEC stocked them to reduce the deer herd
  9. sorry just seen this post. I have used the 265gr 44cal and 225gr 44cal ftx's in my 444 marlin. I all ready had cut back cases for the 265's you don't need to cut back the cases for the 225's. I've killed deer with both and they have gone though on all 4 deer. They make a nice hole. I also used the 225's in my 44mag. I didn't have to cut back the cases to use them in my 629DX or DW HV8 they cleared the cylinder. Only kill 1 deer with the 225's in 44mg it went though. I've gone back to the 265fp in my 444 they the best for the range I shoot.

    The only reason I went with the 12ga was it's better on waterfowl when hunting big water. As for the 20 on turkeys I use a 870 20ga with #6 long beard but last year I used #7 tss shot the stuff is awesome, I wish 9's (tss) were legal in NY.

    LARRY-ISM What I think is the best gun for hunting in NY if you could only have 1 gun. I was once ask if I was new to hunting and only had the money to buy 1 gun for hunting. What gun would it be. So here what it is and why. The gun is a 12ga shotgun with 2 barrels 1 bird barrel the other a rifled slug barrel with a good scope on it. With the 2 barrels you can hunt small game as well as deer out to 100yds. We all know there is not 1 gun that can do everything but the shotgun is as close as it gets.

    LARRY-ISM My take on some of the issues that we are facing in hunting. 1 CWD This is probably the biggest threat to hunting. This disease is a wold wide threat to all deer. CWD is all-ways fatal to deer and right now it is only a deer disease. If it ever jumps the species barrier to humans it will destroy hunting as we know it. Remember the CDC rec amends you eat no meat from a deer that has CWD. 2 Antler Restrictions are not needed. If you look at NY and Pa. NY has been promoting the. The let them grow program now for about 3 years and with little in the way of AR's has a harvest rate of 2.5 year old's and better that is about the same as Pa's with 15 years of AR's. All you have to do is look at the harvest reports from both states. 3 Crossbows I'm a bow hunter and at this time I have no plans to use a crossbow anytime soon. But I would like to see them in all of the bow season. I would rather see someone who shoots a crossbow well then the person who pulls there bow a week before bow season and claim there a bow hunter. I also think you should have to take the bow hunters course to use a crossbow for deer hunting. 4 Harvest reporting I can say I have reported every deer and turkey I've killed. What gets me is when the DEC releases there harvest report for the year we have people saying it's not right. The DEC uses proven methods and data from the on average 45% of us who do report are kills. To the REST OF YOU REPORT YOUR KILLS it's the law. 5 One or two bucks a year. I'm for the two bucks a year. Even though I haven't killed two bucks in the same year since 2009. I hunt a WMU that on average I will get a DMP every two years. I like to hunt so I use my 2nd buck tag to keep hunting. I wont fill that 2nd buck tag unless the buck is bigger than the first.

    LARRY-ISM My personal rules for hunting: we all have personal rules we follow when hunting you can call them ethics if you want. 1 I follow state laws even if I don't agree with all of them. Hunting is to important to me to jeopardize my hunting license. 2 I don't care how you hunt or what you hunt with as long as you aren't violating the law. 3 I don't care how big in this case the deer you kill is. I'm going to shake your hand. Whether It's a doe a button buck or the next world record. 4 I don't use antler size to determine if I'm going to shoot or not I use body size. 5 I wont shoot a deer on the last day that I wouldn't shoot on the first day. 6 Having fun (not the killing but the hunting) when it stops being fun it's time to quit hunting.
