  1. Homemade longbow 62” zebra wood riser, hard rock maple limbs under green glass great northern quiver . Homemade 8125 string , heritage cx 150 shafts with three 5 “ fletch from turkeys I have taken, VPA 250 grain 2 blade broadhead.
  2. Yep no system to issue permits so no sales, wonder how long they will drag there feet since no sales must make them all happy.
  3. Agreed I don’t need any ammunition but have some gift cards that I may burn up on ammo just in case …. I can imagine the outrage if September 2nd the shelves are bare. Just looking at 35 REM prices on gun broker guess I have $2500.00 of that alone !
  4. We are getting close to all of the new laws going into effect and this thread hasn’t had any momentum since August 2nd … A local gun shop has made it known he can’t sell any semiautomatic long guns after September 1st until the new semiautomatic long gun permits are available. I’m wondering if all ammunition sales have to stop September 1st as well until the background check system is set up ? Anyone have any factual information on this ?
  5. I’m surprised there isn’t more discussion of this here as it’s going to effect anyone with a gun . Gun owners should be up in arms trying to figure out how to fight this. We shouldn’t just except it and become complacent or they will continue chipping away at our freedoms .
  6. I can see why some might give up there permits. If it costs a bunch of money every three years , it’s a pain and expensive to get ammo and you only carry/shoot a few times a year is it worth the hassle? If you turn in your permit they win , only the criminals will have hand guns then .
  7. You should check on GB for the price they actually sold for. Then remember with gun broker you have fees they charge, you have to box and ship them , hope the buyer sends payment etc.. If you can sell locally and do transfer at a gun shop you may come out ahead even if you sell for less.
  8. This just keeps getting crazier, by the letter of the new law guns will be illegal in the Adirondack Park. No more gun hunting in the Adirondacks! The governor is trying to back peddle that this isn’t the “intent” but it’s written very clearly. I will be following this one from Senator Dan Stec’s office .
  9. The year I tore my rotator I couldn’t shoot my 57 lb recurve so I hunted with a 43 lb longbow. I was a little leary of the poundage but it zipped an arrow through a fat 3.5 year old buck like a knife through butter. I’m back up to 57 lbs but feel better about the future knowing how well the light poundage worked. Good luck and don’t over do it
  10. I use a Code Black and can’t believe how tight it shoots number 6 long beards. Not cheap but haven’t missed a bird since changing chokes
  11. Seems to be doing better in my area of region 8. Lots of hens around, there’s a tom over at my daughters still strutting (actually right now) that always has 2-3 hens with him I wonder why there not on nest or with polts ?
  12. Yep I didn’t draw my deer tag and had one point, I should draw it next year. I have 14 elk points which puts me a “ no man’s land “ not enough for a great area and the number required keeps going up. It will make you appreciate how good we have it.
  13. I have several recurves and long bows even one I made, l will have to take some pictures. I was just shooting my Morrison Cheyenne tonight it’s a takedown with macassar ebony riser , I have three sets of limbs for it 41lb carbon foam long bow limbs, 52 and 61 recurve limbs. This buck I shot with the 41 lb limbs at 9 yards , complete pass through with eclipse two blade broadhead.
  14. Nice job Cynthia that’s a huge bird at 26 lbs !
  15. If you want a custom try Headhunter he’s in NY and makes beautiful calls that sound great
  16. Birds didn’t gobble much after hitting the ground this morning but I got to see a beautiful show with five Tom’s four hens and a Jake for a couple hours before this one came close enough. Even got to see two hens get breed !
  17. I bow hunt with a longbow , after many years hunting with the compound it just became routine to kill a buck and my interest started to wane. That was about 20 years ago and I haven’t looked back. I make my arrows using feathers from turkeys I kill, make my own strings , hand sharpen my broadheads and the flight of arrow is so fascinating I shoot for hours and never get bored. I’m now shooting a bow I made myself with guidance from a friend that’s a Boyer. I have brought many people into traditional archery and I can’t describe the smile on someone’s face the first time they hit the bullseye it’s really magic.
  18. Airedale I’m pretty sure I saw you with that rifle very good buy . Does anyone know who the guy from camilus was that had a couple tables full of guns? Wishing I had picked up the 141 he had …
  19. I went today and the show was pretty good, picked up a bunch of little things I needed, an old Stevens box call for my collection and some turkey ammo. There’s a Remington 141 that I’m kinda regretting not buying and may call the vendor and buy it. The 30-30 was assorted brands most I looked at were in $35 a box range.
  20. It would have to be fishing for me as well, used to love trout fishing hell I knew every hole in the creeks and practically had the fish named. Just busy and want to spend my time at home with my wife and dogs. A couple times a year I take clients on my buddies boat and let them catch all the fish (walleyes) clean them and give them too the clients.
  21. My daughter bought a new chest freezer it quit working in two years , my venison freezer I got from my in-laws in the 80’s they bought it in the 60’s and it still works like the day they brought it home !
  22. My grandfather’s 20 Fox with a load #6 pheasant did the trick for me on this limb hanger
