  1. I was once swimming in beaver. It was summer 2011. I was 21 and a junior at the University of Albany... Wait, what were we talking about again? Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  2. I might be interested if it's still available. Any chance you are near Buffalo? Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  3. I'll take whatever good karma I can get heading into the rut.
  4. I made it out for a few hours on state land. I had planned to set up where a maple ridge dumps into a beaver swamp. You can usually at least get some sightings if you get high enough. While I am suiting up in the parking lot another hunter pulls in. We chew the fat for a bit and I ask where he is hunting so we don't wind up on top of each other. Sure enough, he is planning to sit the same swamp edge I am. OK, change of plans. I found a spot on the topo I wanted to check out anyway. It's a 50 yard wide bench on a long, steep ridge. There is a corn field up top and a turnip field at the bottom. The ridge is mostly maple with some ash and smaller oaks, but the bench is mostly saplings, apple, ferns, grape vines, etc. It looks like a great spot. I set up on one end of the bench where a drainage comes up out of the turnip field and leads into the brushy bench. I had high hopes for this spot. 4 hours later: not a thing. I got down around 10 to take a little walk/speed scouting trip, and saw more boot prints than deer tracks. No droppings, no rubs, no scrapes. No sign a deer had ever been on that ridge. Oh wall, back to the drawing board.
  5. Feel better, Larry. If you need me to keep any of your stands warm this week, let me know. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah, I'm sure that's why one arm was bigger than the other... I wish I knew that tidbit when I was a teenager. "I've just been practicing with my English long bow, Dad. I have no idea how that virus got on the computer."
  7. I went to a T/C Hawken several years ago. They sure are addictive. I shoot 75 gr. of 777 or Pyrodex behind a .50 prb. I haven't shot a deer with it yet, but I'm going to keep having fun trying.
  8. I hunt Catt. County. From what I've seen, the WNY bow season special is a rifle from your truck at night.
  9. That one part is actually a hell of a coincidence. I had two uncles who hunted but never took me. I struck out on my own for squirrel season 2010. Didn't see a thing at first, but my first morning in the woods I met a guy about my age in the parking lot. We got to chatting, hunted together the rest of the day, exchanged info, and he became one of my best friends. I have hunted every deer season since with him and a few other strays we picked up over the years.
  10. Oh, man you guys are old. I've been in it 11 years. I didn't start until I was 20 but I haven't missed a season since. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  11. After a little more research, it turns out I have this priced like it's still mid pandemic and the store shelves are empty. Price drop to $450.
  12. Because the current crossbow season is delineated by statute, not regulation. It's codified at Section 11-0907(10) of the Environmental Conservation Law. Theoretically, the DEC can only act as authorized by the legislature (I say "theoretically" because it is a little more complicated than that). But where the the legislature has explicitly said you can do A but not B, DEC can't authorize you to do B. The broad changes that DEC recently enacted where all areas where the NYS legislature explicitly or implicitly authorized it to regulate. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  13. The only drag I've ever used was a tarsal gland off a big roadkilled buck. I think in an area like this it is hit or miss. maybe a truly dominant buck will get pissed off and investigate, but I saw small bucks gets spooked when they crossed the trail and does didn't seem too eager to be harassed by the newcomer either.

  14. Went out for some hiking/scouting/squirrel hunting this morning. Found some promising spots for bow season. Saw 4 deer. I had shots at 3 squirrels and, had I used my shotgun like a normal person, I would be eating Brunswick stew right now. But I'm a dumbass who insists on trying to kill one with a handgun, so we are eating takeout instead. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
  15. Congrats on coming to that decision. You only have so much time with her. I've hunted pretty hard the past 13 years, but my favorite day in the woods is still the day I took my two year old daughter "squirrel hunting." I didn't even bring a gun but we had a blast exploring the woods, making up stories, pretending to see all sorts of African game, and then eating wild apples for lunch. I didn't see a single animal that day, but it's still the best day of "hunting" I've ever had. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
