  1. The Cohocton was low and clear this morning, not the best fishing conditions but I managed to catch a few browns. I was staying low and crawling up to the holes. Things were pretty slow until about 10am.
  2. Same here, I was out listening and scouting and hear several birds. It was a beautiful still morning to hear them.
  3. This is getting old. I don't care what others hunt with during bow season. Bow, recurve, long bow, crossbow. Go out and have fun, I know I will be enjoying life to the fullest. And If I am out hunting public land during the last few weeks or the archery season and I come across a stranger carrying a crossbow, I don't see an interior hunter. I see a friend with the same deer hunting interest as me. Together we stand, divided we fall.
  4. Many areas close to my house have VERY limited access points to get onto state land. On the days I'm working, I'll drive by some of those areas before and after work, so I have a really good idea of who is hunting that area. On days I'm hunting, I'll be in the same area, so I have a fairly good idea on how many hunters are out in that area during all phases of the season. Why do you ask? I could care less if guys are hunting with crossbow, long bow or compound during bow season. I just concentrate on what I enjoy and the game at hand.
  5. I'm not opposed to full inclusion but I live in central Livingston Co and things are much different out here and to the south in Allegany Co where there are literally 10's of thousands of acres of State Forest to hunt in. My wife and I take weekend rides during all parts of bow season and there are no more hunters out during the crossbow portion, in fact I'd say fewer are hunting then. I just don't see the deer take going up, nor do I see masses of hunters in the woods if they make crossbow legal for the entire season. I guess one could look at stats from other states for hours and come up wit
  6. I've never heard of them, so I have to wonder how durable they will be. But maybe you hit a homerun with them. I run all Browning's and have had a half dozen out for 2 years, year round with no problems.
  7. I shot glove on compounds for 15 + years before the release came along. I just recently made the deep dive into recurves and started shooting with a thin damascus glove. I had never used a tab but wanted to try it, so I bought a Fred E from 3 Rivers. I find it easy to use and it gives me a smoother release. Will I switch back to a glove? It's hard to say, but this traditional archery stuff is a lot of fun.
  8. Maybe it doesn't show up that clearly in the photo, but all three have the beginning of antler growth showing.
  9. I took a picture of my computer screen of a trail cam video. They walked by on March 11th and were already showing the grey bumps of this years growth. Older deer I do believe.
  10. I had a few bucks go by my cam this past week and you could see the antlers just starting. Give it a few weeks and it will be easy to tell the difference again.
  11. I hiked 6.5 miles today and worked on of my best tree stand sites. Also did 100 sit ups. Home now and on my 2nd cold beer.
  12. I'm into trad bows as well. After giving my grandson a little bear bow for Christmas and shooting it with him I realized how fun it was shooting with no sights. I spent a lot of time researching trad over the winter and tried to learn the basics from Tom Clum Jr and others on "The Push". I looked long and hard at new bows, but ended up buying a sweet 1960's Wing Swift Wing. 30# @ 28 and 66" long. It's a really smooth shooting bow, fun to shoot and should be good to learn on. I'm shooting a Fred E tab and using a bow stringer from 3 Rivers Archery. Close to the top of my bucket list i
  13. In the $100 range I think it's hard to beat a Fenwick HMG spinning rod. I have a few and really like them. Great sensitivity. https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en/fenwick-hmg-spinning-rod-100042483-1 If you have a little more $ I'd go up to a G. Loomis
