  1. Stopped doing scent control 2 years ago and have been just as successful and have not noticed any less sightings. I have gotten a lot better reading and paying attention to the wind. That's what I think matters.
  2. Looks like a 150lb bear.
  3. Anyone hunting here recently? Been here 4 or 5 times this bow season. Saw 3 doe, had a shot on 2 but they were small. Haven't seen a scrape or rub or much sign at all. Walked an hour in this morning and saw 2 small deer tracks and 5 coyote tracks. Going to give it a break and hunt another property and return in a few weeks.
  4. Bought an '06 Switchback in 2011 and haven't looked back since!
  5. I had an $80 food saver that lasted me about a dozen deer. Just bought a cheap $50 chinese one off amazon that seemed to handle two deer no problem.
  6. Saw a big 8chasing a doe and doe fawn through a big open field last night driving home from work in westchester.
  7. These are similar to the sausages I've had in Slovakia/Czech Republic. They are great. What size grinding plate do you use? I've made a similar recipe a few times but I grinded the meat way too much, the inside has a hotdog consistency.
  8. Got 8 during bow. He came in to 12 yds on field edge to my doe decoy. Got an bigger 8 last weekend with shotgun. Came through a funnel to 15 yds following does. I was on the ground sitting on a fold up chair behind a burlap blind for both hunts.
  9. I find the less I use them, the more deer I end up seeing and killing.
  10. I'm all for it. I use only about 1 or 2 a month when I forget my canvas bags at the grocery store. Been trying to cut down the past year. It's pretty silly when you think about it. They get thrown away within 30 minutes of having them. Pretty wasteful and canvas bags are only a buck or two. When I am in Europe, people try really hard to avoid using plastic bags because they charge for them.
  11. The third deer I ever shot had big worts around her eyes. Didn't even occur me not to eat but I did and didn't have any issues (yet)
  12. I say Merry Christmas if I know they celebrate. If I'm unsure or think they may not celebrate I say happy holidays. I love when people think they are a badass for saying merry Christmas to everyone. If you know a person doesn't celebrate Christmas, seems pretty idiotic to tell them merry Christmas. Doesn't seem to0 complicated.
  13. I throw them in and put a little baking soda in. Never had any issues.
  14. I just stop by the grocery store on the way to work and ask them to save the trimmings and usually they have a few lbs waiting for me at the end of the day.
  15. Anywhere else wouldn't feel like home.
