  1. The harvest was down but the age of the bucks in the harvest when up to 67.9%. that's up 3.9% from 2022. A good reason the harvest is down the covid spike is over so less guys out.
  2. I just prime on my press after cleaning the pockets I just fill the primer tube and prime.
  3. I still use a lube pad. those cases can still be saved I would just load them at the low end with the cheapest bullets I have and fire form them back into shape. I have a 6mm rem br and it's really hard to find bass so I have to save all the brass I can. Back in the old days when I shot IHMSA and shot a 7mm TCU one of the best ways to make brass was to take 223 or 222mag brass and fire form them. 222mag brass was better it's longer then 223 brass and would size or fire form to size where 223 brass would always be short.
  4. If I remember correctly, when the back tags were paper. The print was permanent ink. today most of the ink is water based. Also if you lost your back tag you would have to go to a DEC office to get a new one and they would write your number in black marker on a blank tag. if you lost carcass tags you were shit out of luck.

    Catfish fishing

    I never fished it for cats the guys where I worked in Geneva ( retired the end of January) fish it all the time over by Cross lake
  6. You can put a 100 deer hunter in the same and ask them what the best deer caliber is, and you will get a 110 answers.
  7. I have a load data book I keep all my reload info. in and what book I got loads from. I shoot everything over a chronograph or ballistic radar. I write down everything.
  8. I use a Martin cougar 3, arrows I have always used Gold Tips, as for broadheads I use Rage Hypodermic 100gr.

    The Black River at Dexter is good and the Seneca river is good to
  10. As of February 7th, spectrum will no longer be carrying CBS. Channel 8 in the Rochester area you will have to find an alternative channel to watch the Super Bowl
  11. I started having ammo sent to my sons house a few years ago when I couldn't find slugs. I found the slugs I needed online so I had them sent there and he brought them up for me. so now I just have stuff sent to him or I buy stuff when I'm traveling out of state. there's are no check points to enter the state.
  12. I had a good season killed two does. the place I hunt now has lots of does from years of shooting only bucks and letting does walk. so, there are lots of small bucks but not many good bucks. We are now trying to manage it better the downside. the land is in 9P so it's hard to get doe permits we are working with the landowner on getting DMAPS for the next few years.
  13. wonder if it was self-inflicted they had no one of interest at the time but that may of changed.

    2023 DMP's

    The DEC has put the 2023 DMP numbers and probabilities on their web site. You have to use the search bar and type 2023 DMPs and it will pop-up.
  15. Glad I reload 35 rem's 200gr FTX's for my XP-100
  16. Has anyone fished the Canandaigua Outlet off Fisher Road just west of rt14 looks like it could be good for smallmouths and pike. I took a look off the Fisher rd. bridge the water looks like it ranges between 2 to 4 feet with grass and a hard bottom. Just want to know if it’s worth my time to give it a try. I know it’s stock with trout near Phelps.
  17. The DEC has released the 2022/23 Deer Harvest Report. The report is on the DEC web site. 231961 deer were harvested in 2022/23 season and 64% of the bucks taken were 2.5 years old or older. Remember the DEC uses statistical modeling for their report. The modeling has an accurate rate of +/- 3% or better.
  18. You guys know this is a Troll right. We all know this would never happen.
  19. that's not going to happen. there will be no case or shelled ammo in the muzzle loader season.
  20. Sounds like bow technology is ahead of string technology, and they have literally reached the breaking point
  21. You can get 6mm Remington brass at gaff & son's. If you go this route you will have to fire form them after seizing. This may be easier than finding 257 brass. It's a little work but it's not hard to do.
  22. You can use 6mm Remington bass and neck it up or 7-57 bass and neck it down. I prefer to neck up then down. The 257 Roberts is a 7-57 necked down. It should be straight forward to do.
  23. I'm done 3 deer this year don't need anymore so I'm going to sit home and watch football. Then do some duck hunting or grouse hunting.
