  1. @mowin thanks so much for the offer. I'm totally down to do it. Send me a message to coordinate, I'm available Thursday, Friday, and Sunday(last rifle day). @bruno1 You are absolutely right. I'm so glad to be a part of this community where people like @mowin are here to help us new hunters.
  2. Even though it would be great to get some antlers, I'm open to taking a doe. I just have to verify again if my tag allows for it. I vaguely remember it saying either sex, but I can't verify it right now.
  3. thanks for the suggestion. I ended up going to Sterling, there was a lot of hunters there as well. Seems very pressured, but I did see a lot of activity, but no deer.

    I live in Nassau County Long Island. Currently I've hunted so far this year in Washington County, Rensselaer County, and Orange county. I also plan to hunt Suffolk county once rifle season ends, and then the spring turkey season.
  5. I don't have a deer shotgun. I'm solely doing rifle for now. Then will do bow when rifle season ends. But for bow I can do that in Suffolk county which is easier for me to get too.
  6. thanks for the suggestion. I'll look it up. Do you think Bashakill will be crowded on weekends like this upcoming one, where it's much colder? I mean I don't know the area, so I'm not sure if there will be any deer there for me lol.

    Hi Everyone, I'm a new hunter. This is my first year hunting. I've wanted to do it for years but never go too. I'm a USMC Veteran, and I enjoy the outdoors as much as the indoors. I play video games, brew beer, go target shooting, and now hunting. I used to go to the gym a lot but haven't much lately, hoping I can get back into it, but I'm dependent on my hunting hikes for the majority of my exercise for now lol. Anyways, I'm glad I found this forum and can become part of the community. Looking forward to getting to know some of y'all and possibly making some hunting buddies.
  8. Hi Everyone, This is my first year hunting. I live in long island, so I can only rifle hunt in lands upstate. I'm considering going to Bashakill this weekend. I've hunted several state lands over the last few weekends without any luck, or even seeing any Deer, only saw few tracks, but no bedding areas. I'm willing to drive 3-4 hours maybe even longer if there is a public land area worth checking out. I'm hoping to get my first Deer before rifle season ends next weekend. After than I'll transition to bowhunting on Long Island. If there are any state lands anyone can suggest, or if anyone knows much about Bashakill, that would be very helpful if it's worth going to or if I should go somewhere else. Thanks.
