  1. I wonder about this as well...I have a x-bow and compound and use each as the law dictates depending on were I am hunting. As someone who transitioned from x-bow to compound in the last couple years, I find the compound much more versatile when setting up stands and such. My x-bow shoots awesome and is deadly, but it's cumbersome in a tree when its game time imho. But its hard to discredit all of the + sides of using the x-bow vs compound.
  2. So Trump was chastised for this way of thinking several months ago and now Andy will be hailed a hero for saving so many businesses on the brink....They basically said the same thing. I'm sorry, but this is hypocrisy at its worst. I know a bunch of people who have lost everything and for Andy to say this is a huge slap in their face. I know this because that's what they told me.
  3. Nice, Love a good Euro. That mount is slick too, assuming it tilts?
  4. Definitely keeping at it! I've been in parties where we've approached the 40'' mark, just wasn't my turn in the rotation. When I'm with my brothers and close friends, we often rotate flags so we can all catch something. A buddy catching a slammer on my rig is just as enjoyable as me as far as I'm concerned. Pay it forward as they say. I know about Durant, but my buddies always want to fish different water when we head up that way. Beautiful Northern!
  5. While I am new to the game, my brother has researched extensively and is assisting me along the way. He echoes Culver's advice with Minnesota Trapline and also has had good experiences with Hoosier.
  6. I never fished Oneida, should have when i lived in Oswego. I usually headed North for Northerns or to Otisco for trout/tigers. Still trying to catch a tiger, its bucket list fish of mine as is a 40" Northern.
  7. Any diehards on here? I would hardly call myself a diehard, but icefishing is a close second to deer hunting for me. I love getting together with a few friends and brothers fishing with tipups and BS'ing all day. There is usually some gambling involved - biggest fish, most fish, etc. that by all accounts, the winner spends on rounds for all after a good day on the ice.
  8. I do it more to see what it out there as well. Most of my favorite pics are not of deer, but other wildlife. I don't have cell cams and set my cams in areas that are near entrance/egress routes for less disturbance. That being said, I will do a quick scan at the cam location and may adjust where I sit based upon what the cam reports.
  9. Sent my completed packet out yesterday. Will advise when i receive my certificate. That's assuming i passed! I agree, the handwriting requirement made this difficult for me. Was tempted to have one of my daughters write my answers in.
  10. I need to see this thing in action asap - Double Tap!
  11. I too was advised to do the in person as well when it comes back up.
  12. Agreed, my bro is rather new to it (3rd year) and is loving it. He is "self taught" so i think that pushes him a little more to succeed. Kind of like tying your own flies and catching fish.
  13. No problem guys, I know a few people who have received the packet in the mail and are working through it now.
  14. Send an email request to the Hunter@dec.ny.gov . A specific DEC rep answered him, but I think the request goes to the shared mailbox.
