  1. Meant to post in harvest thread , I keep doing that.
  2. Oct.5,first time out this year.Climbed a tree on State land I was up and loving the cool calm conditions by 7 a.m..About 8 I notice movement out about 50 yds., Small deer. Oh there is another one,and another,and another and so on until 5 doe were moving toward me.2 mature and 3 fawns I believe. No shot at the biggest so the 2nd biggest would have to do.Probably 15 yds. I make a lousy shot too far back. I don't believe the arrow hit a branch it looked clear.Did the deer start to move,not sure.Did I pull the shot ? Could be.(yes I do practice shooting my bow) Climbed down and found a broken arrow and a great blood trail.Followed that slowly for 100 yds. or less and found her dead in a nice clear area of pine trees.So I got lucky and hit an artery and ended up filling a DMP the earliest I ever have.I had 2 DMPs last year that went unfilled so this is nice.
  3. Hunted Letchworth with 2 others Thursday-Sunday. the weather sucked Thurs. and was windy Saturday. Friday was o.k. and Sunday morning was perfect weather. I spent 12 hours in a tree total and saw zero deer.My buddy did the same and saw zero deer. The other friend of ours saw 1 buck and 2 doe. I am disappointed but that is the way it goes.Better luck next time.
  4. Venison tenderloin and yellow onion in butter. Delicious.
  5. Oops,I meant to put this in the harvest thread. I guess I am getting old.
  6. I did not see the biggest buck until after I shot this one and it was out of range.
  7. Yesterday morning around 9 on state land,the light rain had stopped when 2 bucks walked in from my left side. I had plenty of branches to screen me as I stood and drew waiting for the second buck to cross a clear area out in front of me.He was approximately 25 yds when I released the arrow.I thought it was a good lung shot.The bucks ran about 40 yards in to some brush.I watched this one twitching his tail and not acting like a lung shot deer. Then I watched him bed down.I stayed in my climber and waited. The other buck walked around a bit and 5 minutes later this one stood up and was very wobbly on his feet.He walked behind some trees where I could not see him and I heard branches snapping.A few minutes later I saw one of the bucks wander off but I couldn't see far through the green woods to know if one or two bucks had walked away.I knew I had better wait because the last thing I wanted to do was push the deer if he was laying 50 yards away wounded.So I sat for another hour.Meanwhile a bigger buck walked through right near where I last saw this one but I would not have had a shot at him even if I had not shot this one.Finally I decided to quietly climb down and look for the arrow if it was where the deer was when I shot and go back to the car for a while.I climbed down and found a very blood covered arrow behind where the deer had crossed the clear opening. The blood had no bubbles but the arrow was painted with it pretty much from point to nock. Because there was so much blood on the arrow I decided to look where I last saw the buck and found him dead . The shot was too far back but I got lucky there were perfect 3 blade broadhead slices through the liver.
  8. So I finally have my backtag and other tags. I emailed my local DEC office yesterday explaining what happened and today I received a nice email back apologizing and giving me some information for the licensing agent. I printed the email and returned to the store with it. Not sure that they agreed with it but I got my tags without any additional cost.Basically the agent didn't know how to give the tags without them having to pay the state. They have to call the revenue office to avoid the charge I guess.
  9. So still no tags and back tag in the mail yet. I went to Dick's Sporting Goods today to get my "free" tags and the clerk and manager couldn't do any printing without charging me $15 for replacements. I said no way am I paying they are free. The manager said he had no way of completing the transaction without charging me. Now I will have to drive 30 minutes one way to the DEC region office. New York State of incompetence.
  10. Best wishes Eddie. My father had 2 stays at RGH recently so I know how frustrating a stay in the hospital can be. Hope to be reading Fast Eddie's Fables from a stand or blind soon !
  11. Have not received my lifetime hunting/fishing tags as of today. I just read on the NY DEC website that if the mailing (tags) does not arrive by Sept. 1 : then between Sept.1 and November 1 tags can be issued free of charge at any issuing agent. After Nov. 1 the standard replacement fee applies. I hope mine show up soon but if not I will get them at an agent. I did log on to the Decals site a few weeks ago to confirm I had new tags and applied for DMPs which I received already in the mail.
  12. Glad you all enjoyed the pics and Wooly your pictures are awesome as ever !
  13. Thanks Wooly. I have it easy getting that nursing pic, I took it from inside my house. Through the window that is why it is a bit hazy.
  14. I woke up Sunday (yesterday) to find that this old neighborhood doe had jumped the fence in my back yard and given birth. She was with her "son", a buck born last year but soon chased him off.These two went from wobbly legged walking yesterday to running today.They lay in the ivy and wisteria and you wouldn't know they were there. Mom comes and goes to nurse them but doesn't stick around so that predators are not attracted. I will have to leave a gate open eventually so these guys can get out of my yard but for now they are pretty safe.
