  1. Tom, Again thank you for the great stories and for the animals that the three of you recovered. I always look forward to next year's adventures. I hope you and your family including the pups have a restful and enjoyable snow season in Florida and have a safe healthy and blessed holiday season. Poppy.
  2. Tom, These tracking stories are the highlight of my day. The picture of the pups on their back, feet up is beautiful. Keep the stories coming and you and the pups have a great holiday. Poppy
  3. I will have my CZ 527 carbine in 7.62 x 39 and Hornady 123 grain SST's. Best woods gun I ever owned.
  4. Tom, Mrs. Tom & the pups, Enjoy the warmth, heal quickly and have a joyous winter in sunny Florida. I will be anxiously awaiting the 2020 tracking stories. Merry Christmas & Happy 2020 to all'
  5. Tom, So sorry to hear about your injury. I hope that you are on your way to a full recovery. As I said before, you are a great sportsman and the owner of the two best dogs that I have ever known, Get well soon my friend. Poppy
  6. Hi Tom, I hope you and the pups had a great Thanksgiving. It has been a while since we have heard from you. Has Luna healed? Again, thank you for all you do for those hunters that you assist. You are a true sportsman and a very generous guy. I will be anxiously awaiting the 2020 treks and stories. May you and yours have a very joyous and healthy holiday season and give the pups a pat on their heads for me. Poppy P.S. I still think a calendar with the recovered deer and pups would be GREAT gift idea.

    Be careful

    Thank you for your kind words. It was built in the Pine Tree with supports coming back to the trunk. I have found that if you attach it to a tree and put legs on to hold the outer base that when the tree moves in the wind, things get loose very quickly. I will check for pictures of before and get some of the after when I can get back in the woods.

    Be careful

    Going to make this quick, check your stands from the ground everytime you use them. This pass Thursday, I climbed onto my favorite box blind in the largest pinetree in the area I hunt. It had been completely rebuilt earlier this year using pressure treated 2"x 6" lumber for the frame, supports and braces and was inspected about two weeks ago. I avoided the area until the wind was correct and Thursday pm washy first chance. I climbed the ladder and opened the door. I put my unloaded rifle in the corner, opened a window and sat on the stool. The next thing I knew I woke up about 20 minut
  10. Saw lots of road kill on Route 9G in southern Columbia and northern Duchess Counties. In the woods in 4Y, minimal rubs & scrapes, no chasing. Hope it kicks in next Saturday.
  11. CZ 527 carbine in 7.62x39, shooting Hornady 123 grain SST's.
  12. Tom, You and those pups are fantastic. My time in the woods is very limited due to recent medical problems thanks to a tick but reading your stories makes me feel like I am out in the woods. I never get enough of your adventures to read. Good health to your and the pups and keep them stories coming.
  13. Started following my Dad around the woods and fields since I was 5. Got my first hunting license at 14 so this will be my 58th consecutive licensed hunting season. Can't go as far as I once could, but I still can go after them critters.
  14. Well for me it is over, tag soup for only the second time in my 56 years of deer hunting. It actually ended yesterday with an experience I have never encountered in the wild before. In my favorite tree on the edge of an alfalfa field, white oak stand to my right. Caught movement on the west side of the field about 100 yards out. Could only see the backs and could nor identify. Suddenly they came up over a small ridge in the field, two of the most beautiful bobcats, one medium size and one very large. The two of them were hunting for moles or mice for about 20 minutes before they went up
  15. Tom, Again this year your fantastic posts were the first thing I looked at when I got home. Without a doubt the most informative, entertaining and just plain wonderful stories, some sad, some happy but all a pleasure to read. For me this year, I had limited hunting time due to my wife's health issues, but each search I read put me in the woods enjoying them whether I got out or not. As always many thanks to you, Luna & Kunox for your generous assistance to many hunters and posting your adventures. Happy Holidays to all and I can't wait to 2019 edition. Poppy
