  1. Not sure what the point of your post was. Did it hurt to ask? Lol. Ya never know where someone might have info. Geez.
  2. The issue is, for the most part, we are going off the sheds we found of that buck last year. So, with that much character, it can surely change year to year enough to create doubt. Only a couple crappy night pictures of him so far this year, and that was mid-July when he was not anywhere near done growing. So, yeah, if we had recent pictures, for sure, you are correct. But, given what we have to compare to, it is making it tough!
  3. At this point, I am calling BS on this guy. I'm not going to post his name out of respect for his privacy, but you can probably easily do your own investigative internet search and find it. I've PM'd him multiple times without the courtesy of a response......not even a "F off, I'm not telling you." Just radio silence. The fact that NOBODY has ever heard of, or seen this deer.......in NY, where true giants are rare........garbage. Knehrke, you are correct, it would be easily identifiable to someone. Zero chance this deer is a ghost. I'm guessing at this point that it is someone just trying to get attention and posted a picture and made up a story.

    Road Kill

    Trying to get to the bottom of this deer. Not for my own benefit, but but to put a friends mind at ease that it is not a specific one he has been watching...... The vague story circulating some other forums is simply this: Guy was driving home from work and saw a truck pulled over on the side of the road. As he drove by, he saw the guy with a huge velvet dead deer. Pulled over and took a picture of the buck. Multiple questions in the forum asked where in NY, and his response is simply "Near Buffalo." And another one that said "Southern Tier." I've PM'd the guy, posted in the thread, etc, and he hasn't even given me the courtesy of a response. Hoping someone here knows of it, heard about it, etc. I don't need an address or GPS coordinates......Something a simple as a town or a road would be swell to put a friends mind at ease.
  5. Ah, yes, the epitome of intelligence and class....name calling. That's when you know you already lost the debate when the only thing you can come up with is calling someone a douchebag. Good job. .4 moa groups are definitely not possible now. You are correct.
  6. The level of selective reading in here gets better every day. I never said that it was achievable by every Joe with a gun. I also never said that it was achievable with every gun off the shelf. I also didn't say it was easy. But, do not tell me that .4 moa is not achievable though when I have personally been with someone who can achieve that with multiple guns without batting an eyelash. So, for the ignorant people in here who argue about things they know nothing about, I can only LOL.
  7. And the misquoting continues. I never said a 1" group was possible at 1,000 yards. You should go back an actually read what I posted. So, since I'm repeating this again, I will say that the original comment made by someone was that a 1" group at 250 yards is NOT possible. EVERY SINGLE comment I have made has been based on that premise. So, yes, people in here are out of touch with reality if they think you can't shoot a 1" group at 250 yards.
  8. Since you can't read, I posted that picture at 500 yards, not 1,000. Secondly, the original comment (again, if you could read), said that guns aren't capable of a 1" group at 250 yards, which is ridiculous. Lastly, the truly trained professionals who would be making a 1,000 yard shot are smarter than the wahoo rednecks posting videos on youtube. I highly doubt the true world record group at 1,000 yards is found by googling it.
  9. You are out of touch with modern technology. That's all I can say. Saying that modern rifles and scopes are not capable of that type of accuracy is just crazy talk. This picture is a 3 shot group on a 500 yard target at a long range shooting school by Rochester, NY (done by one of the instructors). That response was not directed at how far one would shoot at an animal. My gun is a 1,000 yard gun, and I wouldn't shoot more than 350 with my own capabilities. But saying for target practice guns can't achieve supreme accuracy is just wrong.
  10. I couldn't resist but to chime in on some of the ridiculous comments on this thread. A 1" group at 250 with a rifle is easily achieved. Modern rifles and optics are WELL in access of those types of groups. I'm just getting back into shooting now. I have a 6.5 creedmore and I can easily shoot a 1" group at 200 yards......and I am not proficient yet at all. Do you think a sniper plans on missing by more than an 1" at even 1,000 yards? As far as archery goes, all the big talkers with their 70, 80 yard + deer kills are also laughable. I've hit my spot on a 3D target at 100 yards a couple times. Shooting a target has ZERO translation to shooting a deer at that distance. There is no way a single hunter is letting an arrow go at that distance and has any clue how the wind, density of the air, movement of the deer, etc will ultimately effect the impact point. You are guessing, and guessing is unethical. If you are ok with the fact that you may kill the deer or you may wound it with a bad shot, you shouldn't even be allowed in the woods.
  11. I bought a Millennium to hang and leave. I use my lone wolf sticks to access it. Pro: It is SUPER comfy and well built. No worries about it lasting a long time and being able to do all day sits. CON: That MoFO is HEAVY and a nightmare to hang (I have the chain on version). It was so heavy I can't believe I got it in a tree by myself. You mentioned packing it in with you? LOL. Good luck with that!!
  12. I've always been a Grim Reaper guy. On an impulse I purchased a package of Rage 100 gr., 2 blade, Chiseltip mechanical. I will see how they shoot this year. Surprised that nobody is shooting Rage that has responded so far? Particularly the chiseltip. Maybe I made a bad impulse purchase. Anyone have any good or bad experience with these before I open the package?
  13. This is true with biology of all animals. Deer are a great example. They drop fawns based on the carrying capacity of the land. In tough conditions with scarce food or water, they will drop a single fawn or possibly not even breed. In abundant years they will drop twins or triplets. Coyotes are no different inasmuch as they will product pups up to their ability to sustain a population.
  14. Hey TC. I was out shed hunting our area this spring and saw these 2 yotes coming. Did a mouth call (have to turn volume up to hear it) and they circled downwind, checked me out and meandered off. Pretty cool encounter. First ones I've physically seen in our area despite the immense amount of time I spend in our woods. I think they are around, but not abundant. IMG_3571.MOV
