  1. Like a lot of you its has been a hard year, spent many hours in the stand, For the first time in my life I had snow on the ground everyday of Deer season, Saw lots of sign, Tracks, Rubs, Scrapes, just no Deer until 330pm Last night. She was about 75 yds away with a small 4pt. We will be eating Venison for Christmas!

    Sooo..Folks With Mechanical Knowledge....

    Ok, now lets listen to a Mechanic,,,,,, First check connections on Battery, take them off, clean them with a wire brush, make sure they are tight when you put them on. Try to Jump the Jeep, if It starts then you can rule out The Starter. If it starts you need to put a voltmeter on you pos and neg post of the battery, it should read 13 volts, rev up your engine and it should go as high as 14.5 volts. if it does not then your alt is shot. If your alt is doing its job then you have a short/draw somewhere that is draining your battery, you can either trace wires and find the short, or disconnect your battery every night so it doesn't go dead.

    State Land Question

    You are very close to some great state land hunting for Small Game, Waterfowl, and Deer, 3 Rivers WMU between Phoenix and Baldwinsville has lots of great spots and very little hunting pressure anymore. Back in the 70's there would be hundreds of cars, now only a handful.
  4. Ya, there is not one inch of 3 Rivers WMU that I haven't hunted, I don't Bow hunt so haven't been on here yet, anxiously waiting till Nov 17th. I hunt down in the Ithaca Area now, however I do miss Hunting from Henderson Dairy, Potter rd, Kellogg rd, Smokey Hollow, and from Hencle Blvd, to Lamson. I have killed more my fair share of Rabbit, Pheasant, Ducks, Geese, and some pretty nice Bucks. I might head up there this weekend to hunt some ringnecks,,,,,

    Cornell lands

    I have been Hunting it for the Past 5 years, If you put the time in and scout, you might get a deer. I usually get 2 does every year, However I live about 5 miles away from where I hunt. There's plenty of places to hunt, is it worth a 2 hrs drive, probably not, we are not overrun with deer, and the places that are in within the City limits and you cant hunt them.
  6. I do not bow hunt, I have been to Buttermilk and Treman many times during the summer and drivin by it many times during Hunting season, Definitly not overcrowded. Might be worth a shot if you bow hunt.
  7. I live in Ithaca and I have been hunting the special January Season for about 3-4 yrs now. Its it true we have a deer problem, however the deer live in the city limits of Cayuga Heights, Lansing, and Ithaca and you cant hunt them. And there is no Public land available outside the city limits unless you sign up to hunt Cornell Lands and their deadline to sign up is Oct 15th.

    Treestand Height

    All through my childhood I sat on a old tire at the bottom of a tree, now I have a ladder stand and a climber, I never go over 10 ft off the ground. I figure it gives me a little better view being in a stand and by the time they notice me I have a scope on their vitals.

    What do you guys do for a living?

    I am Retired Military and now I am an Accountant for the USDA, I missed Many deer seasons when I was either Stationed Overseas or Deployed to the Big Sandbox. I have about 10 yrs to go before I can retire for the 2nd time and go hunting and fishing whenever I want!

    Should I or shouldn't I

    I had Bear Meat when I lived in Northern Maine, it was pretty good, The only bear I ever shot was out of self defense, back around 1999 we had a very late spring and the bears came out of hibernation and they were hungry and one must have smelled food in my house and tried to break in, a 12 gauge slug to the head at 10 yards changed his mind real quick.
