  1. 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
  2. A little windy up her in the tree today in 7f. No deer, just a couple turkeys so far
  3. 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
  5. 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!!
  6. Love the picture of that deer basically kissing the trail cam
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Curious if anyone has updated there permit since Judge Fahey reitred. Heard Judge Dougherty is easier to get a full carry from and was wondering if anyone has had any luck
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if this gun is better than the guns made today. My dad had one. Bought 9/14/73 at Ra-lins in Syracuse for $79. Made that his deer hunting gun a few years after he bought it and had it scoped. Killed a lot of deer with that gun. Had a good friend of the families that gave up hunting years ago and gave my dad his guns about 8 years ago. One of them was a Deerslayer. My dad put the Deerslayer barrel on his Model 37. I met up in the woods with my dad that year one Saturday afternoon deer hunting. We were sitting there talking about our day so far and i looked at that gun leaning against the tree and told him " i want that willed to me." Ended up getting it for xmas that year. Had it completely taken apart a few years ago and cleaned and got a new scope. I had the stock and forearm refinished when the gunsmith had it apart. Came out great!! Shot this 8 point with it 2 years ago at 9am on Sunday morning.
  13. Thinking about upgrading to a rifled barrel for my shotgun. I have an Ithaca model 37 with a smoothbore deerslayer 20" barrel. Have a Simmons 8 point scope mounted on gun and shoot Federal Classic rifled slugs. Designed for smoothbore. Consistent out to 100 yds, but low at that distance. Wondering what some advantages are for the rifled barrel? I know will definitely gain some range. Just wanted to get some opinions of what people like about a rifled barrel for those that shoot a rifled barrel. Anyone shoot an Ithaca deer slayer rifled barrel??
  14. I bought a pair of cabelas comfort Trac 2000 boots. Best boots I have ever owned. Have had them for about 6 years. To this day have never warn anything other than gold toe tube socks when i hunt. Have never had any issues with cold feet. And most of my gun hunting is not done local so when i go i spend all day in the woods.

    What region are you in? I hunted in 8R last Fri - Mon. We had 5 deer taken over the weekend in our group. They were all loaded with ticks. Pulled 1 out of myh uncles neck when got back to camp saturday night. Had them crawling on me while sitting in my blind Sunday. Had them crawling on me Wednesday when i was skinning 2 of them. Hate them things. I've heard certain areas of state are worse than others.
