  1. I take out the trash at our local elementary school. Usually the bees are all over the dumpster this time of year. Haven't seen one so far this year, very odd.
  2. Senator Mannion's bill, S5802 that allows those 60 & over to use a crossbow full season passed the Senate yesterday by a margin of 59-3. Although its not the bill we have been pushing, it's the first sign of movement since 2014 and is movement in the positive direction.The Woerner "Same-As" bill A6815 is stalled in the Assembly. There are people working hard within the Assembly to get it to the floor for a vote. If you look at the margin of support in the Senate, it should easily pass if it's put up for a vote.
  3. Found this digging. Almost looks like wood. Cow??? mouse trap for size.
  4. Saw the first fawn 3 weeks ago, right on time I guess.
  5. First-light


    Thats just perfect! I hope one day to buy one just like that. Too many lakes around not to take advantage of the water! Good luck with it.
  6. Seeing a lot of fawns lately. Saw a few this week 1 was very small must of been born within the week and other ones 3 times as big. I guess its that spread of a month of when they are bred in the fall. Some early some late. This picture has pretty good size one, taken yesterday.
  7. Huge bear we got one like that also.
  8. Farmer was working my next door neighbors field and noticed the rack in the hedgerow. Pretty nice deer. In our general area I was the only one to hit and not retrieve a big deer at gun season. I don't believe that was my deer. Mine had much more mass and I thought it was a 12 pt. Looks pretty wide.
  9. I've had 2 year old meat that was fine.
  10. We went for a walk in the woods. Changed the batteries in cameras. Nothing out of the norm. Both dogs hung close to me so I didn't see them get into anything. The young one a few hours layer started to show a couple of raised hives. Then yesterday morning they were all over her. No discomfort just looked horrible. Gave her a Benadryl and a bath. Kept an eye on her yesterday and last night. 90% of them are gone this morning. Must have an allergy to something? Anyone deal with something like this??
  11. On e of my guys comes up here and hunts with a black out. He is a police officer and loves the gun. It's weird to me.
  12. Last year my girl came to visit. She was doing land navigation the week before out in the woods. Got a really bad rash on her thigh. Wore pants the whole time. Doctor said the oils will go right through and get on your skin. It was poison sumac.
  13. I'm not a very big Turkey hunter. 2 weeks before opener they were gobbling like crazy. I got a shot at a nice Tom opening morning and went out one other day. Seems like after the first week they just stop gobbling. Just takes the excitement out of it. Season should start mid April if you ask me. I also have to say getting up at 4 am (for me) is a bit too early at 61 years old. lol
  14. Congrats to her. It's a big deal for immigrants to become citizens!
  15. Bluefish???? Grew up salt water fishing only liked the small ones, snappers to 5 lbs. I guess they would be great in a stew. Looks awesome.
  16. Was at the wake today. A lot of very old hunters there but a few new young ones among the crowd. We have to keep this pastime going. Too many wonderful, great, funny stories shared about hunting camp today! Thank you all!
  17. We all thought this was Poke watching over the hunting property yesterday! Only cloud in the sky with sun on it. RIP
  18. Wake is in Maryland. Waiting for details. One hell of a guy. 91 still getting it done running his backhoe. Nicest guy you ever would meet. There was a gun raffle in Canisteo a few weeks ago. He was going to be there but could not get a ride up. Boy I wish he made that. The whole family was there. He would hunt his property opening day through Wednesday. On his last day he would come over to my place and hunt my honey hole. Don't you know more than not he would shoot a buck on that day. Just got home from work. Going to jump on the tractor and mow my fields and think about him. oh one last story......he lost three fingers when he was a kid to a plater. Got stuck in the gears. He did fine without them. He actually joined the Navy but kicked him out when they found out he had only three fingers on one hand. RIP my friend! Thank you guys!
