  1. Don't quote me on it but if I remember right it was like a 1 in 10...?Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  2. That's exactly what I'm telling you. I almost pawned it cheap figuring something was wrong with it. Tried 2 scopes, new rings, torquing the action screws... I have never seen a gun not like a bullet weight that much and I've shot and owned more than I can remember. I even went back and tried some 165's... Nope, not even a group, more like a spread.Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  3. I too have owned a lot of rifles and some don't seem to care what they're fed others however... I have a CDL in '06 that you can hardly keep on a pieplate with any bullets under 180 grains, put a 180 federal soft point in the tube and its a 1" gun. Hard to believe but I can assure you some are that picky... Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  4. You must have super deer. The grinder is the answer for the front shoulder meat. I've killed dozens of deer with rifles and never had one go more than 65 yards. Usually 40 or less. As long as you make a good shot who cares! Its all preference in the end.Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  5. Top of the front shoulder there is a cluster of nerves that will lock them up instantly, ears hardly even twitch...Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  6. Deer that are double lunged don't go a long distance, I'll walk the 50 yds they run and keep both front shoulders in my freezer. The only time I purposely drop them is when there are a lot of hunters around and if someone else shoots at the same deer it can be a headache... To each their own. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  7. Whichever your happy to put a tag on, I'm a believer in shooting the one that YOU'RE happy with, doesn't matter what anyone else thinks... Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk

    Hunting in 6K

    I did a lot of hunting in 6k growing up and the hunting is nowhere near as good as it is in most of the southern tier, hence the reason I very rarely ever go back. Although I did kill my first buck in constantia... Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  9. If the regular season is open, you can use your regular season buck tag and fill it with bow if you choose to do that, just because your in a bow only area doesn't mean you can fill all tags with your bow whenever you see fit. There is still a regular season in bow only areas you just cannot use a firearm. Read the regulations book, look under the uses for the regular season tag. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  10. Unless you have different rules in Westchester, you cannot use your regular season buck tag until regular season. You can't fill both buck tags during archery season...Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  11. Shot this buck at 8:45am this morning cruising a bedding area, popped out at 32yds and double lunged him. I've let a lot of young bucks pass and haven't shot a buck in a few years because I wanted a deer I'd be proud to tag. I don't have private land to hunt so to kill a good buck on public land makes it that much sweeter. Awesome day! Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  12. I've used them quite often, as said, it won't make your scent disappear but if it buys me a few more seconds that may be all I need. It can't hurt. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  13. Probably my ABolt 25 WSSM with a weaver grand slam 3-10x. I have a plethora of deer rifles and I think this ones turn has come back in rotation... Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  14. In a day and age where we are all connected to the internet virtually anytime we want to be and spend hours following social media but don't bother to look up season opener dates is sheer laziness. You can't even claim you misinterpreted the wording, its there in black and white and in no way did the DEC make the opener date vague... I agree with the above posts also, behead the guy who stretched shooting light a few minutes but chuckle at one who is going into the woods with an illegal implement because they didn't care enough to read the regulations...

  15. All of these perfect hunters on one site. Simply amazing. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  16. I believe he was being facetious in asking what the 'v' was. Kinetic energy will increase faster by increasing the velocity ( being that velocity is squared)versus the weight. Although kinetic energy and momentum are two different things. Do I think he could kill a buffalo with his setup? Yes, absolutely... With the right shot/distance. Wouldn't be an ideal setup but doable. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  17. I've been out the last two full days except from 12pm-1pm and saw 9 different deer, 3 antlered bucks, 2 adult does and 4 fawns. 8 of the 9 deer were in the mornings between 8 and 9 o'clock. 1 was at 3 pm. I'm hunting 7M Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  18. Had 5 deer come past this am between 8-9, one spike grunting and following a doe and fawn. Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
  19. Had two 5 pts and a button buck cruise by at 12yds this morning. 1 was definitely searching and the button and the other 5 were feeding/chasing each other. Beautiful morning, almost too quiet Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk
