    advice for a NY bear hunt

    The northern zone has many opportunities on public land with some early scouting. They likely seek good food sources in early fall, I've found old orchards and choke cherry trees the main sources. Talk to some locals to see where they observe activity or have activity.

    Hiking w/ fly rod

    I have the four piece rods for packing and use a light weigth homemade plastic tube on my day pack to safely get them where I'm going. I some times carry my frame pack for better protection depending on where I am wandering about...... I don't carry my St.Croix rods for "off trail" fly fishing.....
  6. Best recent read was "Beyond the Bear" by Dan Bigley. He's in Alaska fishing and is mauled by a grizzly bear and the bear literally bites across his face and takes his forehead, nose and both eyes. The book was a story of his amazing recover and how life went on, even after being blinded, beyond the bear.. Great inspirational read....

    Handgun must be surrendered to law enforcement until they can be designated by the executor of the estate to any of the following: 1. place them on his/her permit if they have one or obtain a permit 2. transfer them from the law enforcement to a FFL licensed person/business via authorization from executor 3. authorize law enforcement to destroy them 4. executor may distribute them to a third party via a permit amendment and written documentation from executor Hope it any event handguns MUST be turned over to lawenforcement and the county (issuing agency) of the deceased's permit needs to be notified.

    Big Woods Cabin Fever

    Made the week long trek to camp and snowshoed in with about 4' hard pack on the ground, the deer are yarded up as usual and it's gonna be a while until snow melts as it's hard pack and icy underneath. It was nice to see camp doing well and all roofs shed off, someone knocked the gate down on my access so there a early spring project..... Stay well out there and the sun feel like spring.........

    Which day pack do you use.

    I use a Cabela's fanny pack with shoulder straps. It's roomy enough for the gear I carry and a light rain jacket, has straps on the outside so one could carry other clothing, and lots of packets... I like that I can slip it on and off while sitting and carries well on your back.

    Big Woods Cabin Fever

    Well now fellow "big woods" hunters, now that the tears from early December have ceased and the snow has hit hard in my area, how many of us have a severe case of cabin/big woods fever? All my gear is packed away, guns cleaned and know that camp is under the snow blanket deep, I'm ready for signs of spring. I've started my spring trout fly tying and wait... What are you guys doing to survive?

    advice for a NY bear hunt

    It''s tough to pattern them unless you scout starting early and often. I enjoy small stream wild brook trout fishing, so I am in the woods a lot in late summer and early fall. I am in the Adk. park and hunt state land predominately. The food sources I scout are an old farm area and some big hills with lots of cover and concealment. Two years ago the apple trees in the area were very productive and the bears were there every day in August and September. I was able to get trail cameras up and identified about 20 different bears from every age group. The following year there was not an apple to be found and the bears hit the choke cherry trees that were full that year. Some years it's beach nuts and you never know what source will be most available. All you can do is identify an area with a good population and scout on foot and with cameras. Best of luck...
