  1. Thank you all! I don’t really visit here (or the other site) much anymore but do check in from time to time. Thanks for the well-wishes! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I was finally able to pick one from the litter, he will be delivered to WNY on the 12th. Getting excited to say the least!
  3. I had a Visla, absolute lunatic dog. Good hunter, but totally out of control as a house dog. He went back to the breeder after a year and a half. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Amazing! I hope I didn’t come across as if I know anything about these dogs or the breeders, I’m learning a lot, really fast and have met a bunch of folks that are breeding these guys in the last two weeks. From what I have learned, I’ve got a great pup coming my way, I may be reaching out to those of you with much more experience than I, in the coming months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Awesome! Did you get her from JC?! Great guy, he’s the one who set me up with the folks in Missouri. Classic Setters in Hartsburg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just purchased an English setter, Ryman line. He’ll be here January 4th from a well respected breeder in Missouri. Looking forward to many years of bird hunting with him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I was always under the impression that's what they do when the catch something they don't like. They don't move until they figure it out (or don't) and decide to bolt.
  8. NYS produces tons of big bucks, we just have to stop shooting them before they get there. It seems more and more people realize that taking young bucks has consequences down the road. I'm not criticizing anyone for shooting anything, I have shot many young bucks, but once the mindset of "let it grow" sets in, the reward is much more satisfying. It was for me anyway. I follow a local taxidermy shop in WNY on FB and some of the bucks they are taking in this year are incredible.
  9. IDK… unless you’re hunting in Hamburg or Lancaster I think it will be fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m sitting out this year after 46 consecutive starts. This is the one and only OD/season I’ve missed since I was 12 years old. As Saturday approaches I’m starting to second guess that decision, but I’m sure when I wake up at 9:00 Saturday morning to the forecasted Snovember, I’ll happily crawl back in bed and think about all the fun you guys are having out there.

  11. I switched to video three years ago and instantly realized how many deer I was missing. It can be a long process reviewing them, but I have caught so many great bucks (and a bear) in the last second or two of a 15 second video triggered by a doe or small buck. Here is a great example of what you can miss with still shots (00:19), I killed that buck three weeks later in that exact spot.
  12. Full disclosure…. We trailered to Ocean City. We’re not that that hard core! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yep. We rode through here a couple of weeks ago on our way back from Ocean City Bike week. Such a great ride we just had to do it during the peak colors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The plan is to ride to Lock Haven then up through Susquahannock forest tomorrow, down to Williamsport, up to Mansfield, then to Coudersport. Back home to Hamburg on Wednesday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
