  1. Have a buddy looking to get a scope installed on an Ithaca 16 ga deerslayer. He lives in the Syracuse NY. Looking for good gunsmith in the area to perform this job. Anybody have any recommendations for a good gunsmith in the area. Thanks in advance!!
  2. Oh that looks really good. Have a recipe for that you'd be willing to share??
  3. Had one of the backstraps from the deer I got this year. First time I have ever left one whole. Was thinking of wrapping it in bacon before cooking it. Just wanted to get some ideas as to how you guys cook them? Grill? Oven or broiler?? Smoker?? Thanks for any tips.
  4. I have a pair of Comfort Trac 2000 boots from Cabelas. The BEST boots I have ever had for hunting. On my 3rd pair now. I always tuck my pants into the boot and the outer layer of my hunting clothes on the outside
  5. Congratulations!! My daughter will be 20 in a couple weeks. Wish I could have her back that tiny again to hold. Enjoy every minute of it!!
  6. Ithaca Model 37 12 gauge with deer slayer barrel. My father gave it to me for xmas 15 years ago. Bought it new on 9/13/73. for $79.99. Gave me the owners manual with all the info along with the gun. Heck of a lot more expensive these days to buy a new one of them
  7. A little windy up her in the tree today in 7f. No deer, just a couple turkeys so far
  8. Best boots I have found are Cabelas Comfort Trac 2000. Wear nothing but a regular pair of tube socks. Always carry and extra pair in my backpack in case they are needed but for the most part they stay warm. Threw the 2nd pair of socks on last year the day after Thanksgiving at around noon. The high that day was ion the single digits. This is the 2nd pair of these I have owned and wont be the last when they need to be replaced

    Good Luck!!

    Good luck to everyone out today for the opener!! And for the season!! I cant get out until Friday and definitely am looking forward to that. Hope everyone has a safe and fun filled season. Looking forward to seeing everyones pictures
  10. Got the upgrade to no restrictions. letter came in the mail yesterday. just need to get to the sheriffs dept and get the things switched over. And then get shopping for a new pistol!!
  11. Love the picture of that deer basically kissing the trail cam
  12. I work with active and retired law enforcement. So I have been picking their brain a bunch on which avenues to pursue this. One of the cops told me since my permit is classified as sportsmen I can not carry unless using it for "sportsmen" activities. Said I need it locked up when going to the range, hunting, etc. Said "IF" stopped not doing "sportsmen" things and caught carrying it could result in lose of permit if officer stopping you wants to be a dick, but most will let you go with a warning. With as hard as they are to get I would rather try for the upgrade before doing something to jepordize getting my permit pulled
  13. keep me updated please. meeting with my boss today at 9:30 to discuss what options I should take. he is retired law enforcement so hoping he will have some inside knowledge on best ways to proceed
  14. What is weird is that law enforcement doesn't even need a permit to carry. Even after retiring. All they need is to have their retirement badge with them. They can even carry in any state, not just NY. This is a federal law passed in 2004 called the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA). Was passed as a result of the 2001 attacks on the world trade center. So basically with some of these judges logic unless you are a cop, who doesn't even need a permit, no one will ever get a concealed carry
  15. i could get mine updated to carry at work, my boss said he would right a letter to the judge for that since I can carry at work if I wanted to but I would rather try to get a full carry permit first. Just wondering if anyone has had any luck with the new judges. Thanks for the reply
