  1. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow hunters. Clouds moved out and it's a beautiful morning to be hunting.
  2. Last year was my first with the crossbow as well. Would like it more if we had an early muzzleloader season in the SZ. Typed that as I sit in the woods with a crossbow.
  3. Slow crossbow opener so far. Was watching an eagle fly around over the thruway, but no deer seen yet.
  4. Breezy here, light gusts of about 15mph. Just enough to blow the rest of the leaves down keeping my head on a swivel wondering if its deer, a bear, coyotes, or leaves.
  5. Last morning to hunt for me up here. Still be at the cabin through Monday, but 90% rain tomorrow and 80% Sunday. Almost positive I just saw my third bear in the dacks.
  6. I'm about 500 yards from where I was yesterday and it's dead caml again. No wind, barely any song birds. I walked the perimeter of the marsh down in a gully on the way out yesterday and it was high. I always cut fresh tracks in there and usually kick something up. Nothing doing yesterday.
  7. Super quiet and a very warm 40* in my little spot up north this morning.
  8. Anyone else out in the mud this morning? I have a lot of standing water inside the hub blind. Should get interesting once the sun pokes out and the skeeters get moving.
  9. I was out yesterday, and between rain on Sunday and the humidity the trees I was sitting under were dripping on me like it was pouring rain. It was warm, but once my pants got soaked it didn't feel so warm. I bailed at around 8:30. My pack is still damp. We had to help my FIL built a shed yesterday and it completely wrecked my back and knees, so this heat wave won't bother me much as I'm out of the running anyway.
  10. My condolences on the loss of your father @Just Lucky
  11. Let's go. Good luck to my fellow deer hunters out here this morning.
  12. Once again you prove you won't stand behind your convictions. You spout off all the time on we need to take a stand against them chipping away at our 2A right, but you're OK paying extreme fees jacked up by store owners to take advantage of these laws. I swear, you don't read what you type at all. Practice that crap you preach or stay off the soap box man! I won't be buying my ammo in NY any more because I will not bow to the tyranny and I certainly won't be paying an inflated fee to someone who's already getting paid to do their job.
  13. Anyone trying to jack up prices and gouge is the enemy on anything! You crack me up man! If I try to sell you something that cost $2.50 for $30 who's fault is it that I put that price on the item? C'mon man! Maybe not the enemy directly, but if they were our friends they would charge what they are supposed to charge and not take advantage of this situation to make a huge profit by jacking the price up over 1000%.
  14. Yeah, they can all suck a fat one too! I'm not paying anyone $15 or more for something that cost $2.50. All they have to do is type a few things on a computer taking less then two minutes. Wait until for some stupid reason someone fails the check and are told they have to pay a 25-30% restocking fee like with firearms.
  15. Put 6 arrows through the compound and two bolts through the crossbow. Everything is where it was last April when I shot either last.
  16. I plan to make special trips to buy most ammo, and have already made a few. I'll especially be doing that for all my AR ammo. Until....... You wait and see, with NYSP in charge of the checks you can bet the qualifications are going to be altered for all firearms. You have to remember, that guy in charge of the NYSP is the guy who helped Cuomo sneak the Safe Act in and is also responsible for helping push the ammo background check and semi auto rifle permits though. So don't be fooled for a minute into thinking anything will get easier for us. I give it a couple years and we are going to have to have training and permits for all firearms, most likely including muzzle loaders. I can't express how much I despise the people who voted her into office and the people who voted jackass Joe in as well.
  17. Ah, it was great to stop by and see the old gang again. The more things change..................... For old times sake:
  18. I dropped $160 hunting turkey last May. That was 26 days out. Gas was steady at $3.70. Now it's $4.15 going into the deer season and that's three months. Can't wait to see how much I spend deer hunting.
  19. Nope, I think north is the best place. A place where just seeing a deer is an accomplishment. Besides, there's no access to that WMA. West is no shooting guns now and east is still being blocked by the NYSTA.
  20. Congrats on the new lever gun! Must be something in the air, I picked up a new rifle as well last weekend. Not vintage but wood and blued for a change.
