    Early Christmas present!!!!

    Thanks again everyone. It was quite an emotional rollercoaster of a day for me, it was also the anniversary of my father's passing and is still difficult to get through. But man did the mood change when the kids walked through the door with THAT shocker!

    Early Christmas present!!!!

    I have to say thank you to all of you. We don’t know each other personally, I have only met one member, but the response to this post really says something about our group. This has been a very exciting and emotional evening for us and the emails that are flying in from HuntingNY are big part of it. Thank you all for being a part of this amazing event in our family. Already thinking about setting up a college fund, lifetime license, of course he/she is going to need a shotgun and a 4wheeler, a fishing rod, baseball glove, dirt bike, (new dirt bike for Gramps), skateboard, football, puppy... so much to do! Going to have to change my screen name too... Grampy, any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Taking down ground blinds

    LOL! Yeah, I agree. I pulled mine last weekend, there was a foot of snow on and around it so that was fun. I was tripping and falling over buried logs and branches and ended up soaking wet from sweat and melting snow. I didn't even attempt to put it in the bag, I bunched it up, put a bungee on it and put it in my Jet Sled. Once I got home I opened it in the garage to dry off before putting it in the bag. It took a few minutes, but it went in.

    PA Girth Chart vs Live Weight Comparison

    OK...not being a jerk, but can’t you simply count them when you’re done????? I just don’t get any of this. Why use some obscure way of “estimating” when it so dam easy to know exactly what you are really dealing with? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Bow 2019

    Maybe not... one of my boys is an engineer at Tesla, he’s made all kids of cool things on the CNC machines there! Let me know when you want to try it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    PA Girth Chart vs Live Weight Comparison

    I must be missing something with all of this chest girth nonsense... I saw a pic of Wolc with a hanging buck recently, is a $25 scale on that hook just too much trouble? I just don’t get it, not being a dick, but if I were that concerned with what my deer weighed I would have a scale. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Venison for dogs

    A girl that used to work for me would pay some crazy amount of money every week at a "Dog Health Food Store" to buy frozen ground venison for her tiny little Yorki. She fed it to her raw. Bravo was the brand and they still sell it. Seems crazy to me, I agree with TF's wife, my Blue Weimaraner-couch potato is no wild animal. I have no problem giving him cooked venison though and of course he loves it.

    Xbow full inclusion??

    I agree and I don't think it is a bad thing either. For me, another BIG difference is the lack of movement needed to get on target compared to the vertical bow. I shot my first deer with a crossbow this year, It was kind of anti-climactic in some ways. I did not get the rush of excitement like I do with the bow. All of the heart pounding nervousness I experience when trying to stand, position myself and draw back on a deer, in complete silence and without detection is the real rush, for me anyway. When a buck abruptly swings his head to look up from 15 yards away as you are about to draw, you freeze, thinking he can surely hear your heart beating. You lock up and wait an eternity for him to look away for a split second so you can draw. That's what I love about it. When that doe looked up at me with the crossbow, I just pulled the trigger. Done. It is flat out easier in many ways, but that is not a bad thing either. I'll still use the X-Bow, but I'm already looking at a new Hoyt for next season!

    I don't know, seems like they would, it was something I read online is all.

    What About a Limited Draw?

    Not sure what that means.

    What About a Limited Draw?

    Yes and they don't pay anywhere near the taxes we already pay to our state. NYS takes enough of my money and misuses it already.
