  1. Is the overall consensus that turkey's have been in decline in NY State? If so, why doesn't the DEC have a stocking plan where land owners could raise turkeys like they do pheasants?

  2. First 19 shots At 20 yds. Should have been 20 arrows but shot 16 broke a nock and damaged and arrow. The last three arrows are number 17 18 and 19. The first four holes were off to the right so I moved the sight. There are two holes high, just above the target, which I simply blew it. The verdict is out so so far but I am encouraged. Will keep you updated as I progress. 




  3. I use milkweed pods as well. It tells a much better story. I also have a piece of white thread about 4" long attached to my bow so I can see the wind direction. Another thing you can do is attach an alligator clip (AKA roach clip for the old hippies) with a white thread attached to either the bow or a branch in front of you.

  4. I have not mounted this on my bow yet, but plan to in the next several days. I will let you know my thoughts as I go along, but this video above should help everyone understand how this works.

  5. I certainly understand your questions and concerns but if you go to the link I provided above you can see many people use it quite well. Im considering buying a used bow to mount the ezv and a nose button just see if it is something I like before I change my new bow.

    If donating some hunting items to you would help you get back into the woods I'm sure I can part with some extras I've accumulated over the years? I can only imagine losing everything. Let me know if that would help you get back to hunting a bit sooner, I'd be happy to see what I could send to you.

    I can probably donate some hunting gear and would be happy to Steve. You and I have agreed on a lot of discussions over the years. I am truly sorry that this happened to you and can not even begin to relate to such a disaster. Let me how I can help.


  7. I just got my EZV yesterday. Just hat a procedure done so I won't be able to mount the EZV and be able to pull back my bow until this weekend probably. I have a complete understanding of how to mount and adjust to select the correct disc.

    I don't think it will take long for me to know whether this is for me or not. A lot of guys who use the EZV have gotten rid of their peep and use a nose button.

    The purpose my changing from a Truglo single pin pendulum was simplicity.I have use the single pin for over 15 years because of simplicity. One pin at 25 yds.

    If this works like I think it will it will eleviate a lot judging and selection of the proper pin at the moment of the shot on a deer.  Thats the reason I made the purchase.

    Will be following this thread. I used to have some Grundens stuff for when out on a boat. Dry, but uncomfortable and stiff. No breathing. goes over your foot gear, which is usually deck boots or Lacrosse rubber boots so the water does not run in like a river. Now I usually use some Frogg Toggs. 

    My frog toggs from stream fishing are not very  waterproof anymore. 

    I have a military ESWCS Parka that is waterproof, but is heavy and stiff. Mine is Generation 2, the newer stuff if you can find it may be lighter and more flexible.

    Most of the time, I use a Cabelas Space Rain (with 4MOST DRY-PLUS fake Goretex). Works well in terms of rain repellency and breathing, but is somewhat flimsy and I am afraid of using it in the brush for fear of ripping it. 

    Hoping to upgrade to something better this year, like a KIUI, First Light, or Sitka. The price tags scare me. But buy once, cry once.

    I love all my Sitka gear and considered their rain gear but the reviews are not good thus the reason I'm looking into options.

  9. I have a set of Frog Toggs camo now but have not used it to any extent. I know they make great motorcycle rain gear. I'm doing an IL bow hunt in early November and plan to sit all day and want to be prepared. I'll also pack the tree umbrella. :elf:

  10. Hi folks, thinking of a new rifle. I have a 30 .06, a 30-30, a model 70 chambered in 270 Weatherby mag and a Ruger 243. I’ve been thinking of purchasing a Tikka 25.06 for Whitetail. I hunted this past season with the 243 and know the 243 is an adequate caliber but thinking the 25.06 would have just a little bit more punch. Trying to stay away from recoil. Thoughts. 

  11. In the old days you walked until you picked up a track of a big buck and you walked and walked and walked until you got an opportunity for a shot. That was before all the land was posted and you were welcome to walk a mile or two after a good deer. nowadays you’re lucky if you can walk a quarter of a mile before you’re on posted land unless you happen to be on state land.

  12. It appears that I probably should reacess my sighting.  I use 2 pellets and 270 gr power belts. I do have areas where I sit that are easily 150 yds though. I do like the idea of citing it at the 50 yard distance though, and perhaps 2 inches high at 50 might be more suitable for my area.

  13. No doubt about... the original variant that started it all in March of 2020 was the most potent strain and each strain thereafter was weaker. That's not to say if you have a compromised immune system you can't still die or become very sick but generally you will recover quickly w/o a lot after affects. I lost my sis in law Oct 29/21 in just 3 short days. She was obese, diabetic and heart ailments... poof - gone!
