    Antler restriction

    I think you're taking what it says too literally. If there are more mature bucks then the rut won't last as long allowing the younger bucks to spend less time seeking. This also allows for the proper birthing times to occur, thus longer growing times before fall, and healthier fawns going into the winter. I understand how these things could be considered a stretch but it makes a ton of sense also. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    Antler restriction

    https://www.qdma.com/mature-bucks-needs-em/ This article can explain it way better than I would be able to. I know parts of it aren't as applicable in northern states but the overall concept of young bucks exerting too much energy during the rut is huge. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    They do say that a balanced age range in bucks is important. Having too many young bucks negativity impacts the health of the herd. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    ELK in NY

    Believe me I know. Grew up there, have walked into bow range many of times on the big bulls. Just would like a chance at them since I grew up with them. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    ELK in NY

    How bout it. I've been putting in for an elk tag for 10 years now. Haven't been drawn, same can be said for family members/friends. A couple have been doing since the hunt started are completely maxed out in points and still nothing..makes you end up going out west where you can buy the license over the counter.

    ELK in NY

    Having grown up with the reintroduction of elk in PA you're completely right. The game commission has had to put in food plots to help them expand, they don't do well in deep woods settings. They're also more destructive than domestic cattle, farmers/landowners with fruit trees have had major issues with the elk here. I enjoy seeing them as much as the next guy but ideally they wouldn't have brought them back. Just my opinion. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk
  7. Elk are mainly grazers, they wouldn't do well in the big woods up there. The game commission has had to put in tons of food plots to help the elk herd thrive. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    Out of state Doe Tags

    That's good to know. The owner said he wanted to reduce the herd. I'd feel bad if I couldn't help him out a little. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    Out of state Doe Tags

    That'd be awesome. I'll see what I can find and go from there. That was what I was seeing for the WMU also, just haven't been to the property yet to know exactly where it is. Thanks for the help! Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    Out of state Doe Tags

    Looking at the map it would be either 8F or 8H depending on where exactly the property is. That'd be awesome if they were still available, I'll have to check it out. Thanks! Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    Out of state Doe Tags

    So I recently gained access to a piece of private land in the Mendon area. I was wondering what the process to getting out of state doe tags is? The landowners asked that I take a few does off before shooting a buck. I'm from Pennsylvania and we do first come first serve 1 tag per round for doe tags. Looking for advice so I can be prepared for next fall. Thanks in advance. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk

    How much do you shoot your deer rifle/shotguns

    Honestly I'd say that's pretty accurate. I know I don't shoot as much as I should, just have gotten lucky the last few years in archery so I haven't had to break out the gun. Most guys I hunt with or know don't shoot their deer rifle beyond sighting it in each fall. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks that's something we're noticing too. Places are up one day and sold the next. We're both really looking forward to getting up there full time. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk
  14. I'm not sure what the rules are on this and I'll delete it if I'm violating any but...My fiance and I are looking to move to the Canandaigua/Victor/Palmyra area within the next year or two. We've been looking on different realtor sites but haven't found what we're looking for yet. Just curious if anyone in those areas could provide us with some feet on the ground perspective? Or know of any places that are listed but not through an online site. I appreciate any help you guys can provide me. Sent from my QTASUN1 using Tapatalk
