  1. Your right i was thinking of the Argos. I bought a set of Cronus for my son to fool with and getting mixed up between the two. I looked though the Argos a bit was surprised at the price they carry. If I was on a short budget that’s what I would consider. I would be remiss if did advise someone to save up a bit and start looking at glass in the 1k retail range as I think that’s were you see some value for entry level binoculars
  2. Call up Doug at Camera land NY and get a set Athlon Cronus.
  3. Your clueless as usual. One out of four deer killed state wide was killed during the archery season. When you compare how many archery permits were sold compared to regular big game licenses anyone with a shred of cognition can conclude its efficacy.
  4. The regular season in my area is still a bit of zoo, still way too many hunters per square mile for way to long of a season.
  5. The argument from the status quo side is that we used to get an F now we get a D minus….so we should be happy. The other side of the isle says although we have improved it’s still not acceptable and that we should working to improve even more. The biggest obstacle we face in NY is a culture of ignorance in our ranks. You see this example clearly when it’s articulated as “ this is NY, that won’t work here”. Asking and expecting that changes in behavior and attitudes and goals to come from within is only going so far when hunters cling to that ignorance. We need to look at implementing change structurally from a regulatory stand point that will then carry over to hunters behaviors and actions. We absolutely can do better in NY, we just have to want to.
  6. In 2020 statewide 78% of the bucks harvested in NY were 1.5 and 2.5. Quite frankly if you think that’s a good thing your either misinformed or ignorant. https://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/wildlife_pdf/2020deerrpt.pdf
  7. Just got it up yesterday hope we can he it decorated tonight.
  8. How is a shorter more condensed gun season that isn’t in the peak of the rut a program? What are you taking about? You have 15.1 hunters per square mile, the second highest density in the county and we have a gun season in the southern zone that is over 4 weeks long between the rifle and Muzzle loader Season, with the first two weeks being in the rut. In norther zone that is six weeks long between muzzleloader and rifle season, all in the rut. Pure idiocy in deer management.
  9. I often wonder where the misconception comes that having a healthy/balanced herd equates to less opportunity to fill your freezer. My only conclusion is that a lot of it comes from people having almost no experience any place else and they have nothing to compare it to. Hence they make faulty assumptions. Where in fact the exact opposite is true. With better management you could have more opportunity, better quality and higher hunter satisfaction.
  10. Wyoming Mountain Lion Bowhunt https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?share_fid=43457&share_tid=94504&url=https%3A%2F%2Fhuntingny%2Ecom%2Fforums%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F94504-Wyoming-Mountain-Lion-Bowhunt--&share_type=t&link_source=app
  11. Again, based on efficacy they have do not belong in an archery season.
  12. Sounds like i know what it takes to have a healthily deer herd and good hunting for everyone. Considering my friends and neighbors hunt on my lands more then I do, I am far from greedy. If was really selfish, considering I deer hunt out of NY more then in NY then I wouldn’t say …I don’t give shit and NY can continue its drain circle
  13. Probably no statically significant difference considering the average NY hunters indifference to laws.
  14. Thanks for the honest answer. At one time I was very much enthralled in NY hunting, luckily very early on I had the opportunity to go bowhunt other places. Those experiences have shown me that there are better ways to manage whitetails then what takes place in NY, and offer a hunter a chance and a better experience.
  15. How does NY deer hunting experiences compare to other places you have hunted?
