  1. I feel like all seasons are set up for the hardcore hunter like myself. No matter what firearm is allowed at that point of the season you will not change the number of hunters in the woods. Also I don’t care weather you have a faster single shot shot gun a muzzleloader is a lot more accurate to longer distances even if it’s a little slower reloading the first shot is the one that matters.
  2. Using milkweed is a game changer, especially on calm days it lets you really see how thermals work in the morning and at night. Wonder why that deer spooked for no reason. Drop some milkweed and find out even though you had a slight breeze in your face that’s not exactly where your scent is traveling.
  3. Not 3 phase bud that thing on the far left is a neutral. If your looking to sell look up m+m electric I believe out of Rochester they deal in used equipment.
  4. Buckmaster you come off as a arrogant cocky prick! These would be fighting words if you didn’t do such a good job of how you convey your opinion. Keep fighting the good fight for common sense, also your deer tracking content is fantastic
  5. In my opinion two bad people met in that street that day. I believe Floyd had something on Chauvin from their past when they crossed passed as bouncers and whatever other encounters they may have had in the past. Chauvin was worried Floyd was gonna out him so he took it upon himself to make sure whatever Floyd had on him was never gonna come to light. Neither one of these people were upstanding pillars of the community in my mind. However the narrative that this is a white on black crime is only pushing a mainstream media agenda. There was a police shooting in Oneonta last week where a suspect was shot and killed that has barely touched local news let alone the national spotlight and it was very questionable as if the force was needed. The only thing that has kept it from being a riot starter is the officer was as white as the suspect.
  6. Last year I wanted to change my public land setup from a climber to a stand and sticks. I did a bunch of research and stumbled across novix when they were coming out. I love it. Way quieter setting up than a climber and super convenient packing in. I haven’t put my hands on an Xop or lone wolf setup but the im 99% sure them and novix are all basically the same minus the name. All that being said I’m really considering infalts stand that extra weight reduction has my interest piqued. I’m not sold on his sticks because I really like the three steps per section of the novix(lone wolf/xop)
  7. I do the same thing I wanted an answer to buddies guessing x,y,z on weights so I bought a scale now there’s no guess work and like you I’d say I’m close to guessing within ten pounds, I think knowing weights of previously harvested animals and their body sizes and snout lengths has helped me not shoot smaller deer in the moment.
  8. I agree once you start pulling them up on the scale you get a real appreciation for what they weigh. A average size doe is around 100-110 pounds dressed, get towards the 130 mark and that’s a big animal. Bucks of similar age carry about 30-50 pounds more than that.
  9. I also have a summit viper, most comfortable stand I have ever used. This year I was looking to be a little more versatile on what trees a could set up in(branches, crooked, etc..) so I did a lot of research on Hang ons and steps. During my research I stumbled across Novix a new brand and from what I understand a sister company and clone to lone wolf and got a great deal on their introductory offer of products and have not been disappointed. After I got the hang of setting it up I believe it’s a lot quieter than my viper and easier to transport. I still love my viper but from here on out I will only use it for all day sits or gun hunts(I like using the front rail as a rest)
  10. There junk. My dad had one on a 22 mag he had me sight in for him. For every click of adjustment it seemed like it needed six to move that increment, and after it was finally dialed in it would lose its “zero” randomly. He was always a open sight guy but now that he’s older he is more dependent on scopes he is not a big game hunter more of a yard varmit/target shooter. I will tell you what I try to tell him, the glass is far more important to accuracy than the firearm.
  11. I would like to know where in New York you can kill 7 130” bucks regardless of how illegal or legal they may have been taken. That’s some very successful baiting, spot lighting or skilled woodsmanship I’ve never seen.
  12. Tikka t3 6.5 creedmoor has one season and a doe under her belt but is itching and due for a big buck
  13. Have a 2014 f150 5.0 86000 miles on it now. I have been very happy with it except last month the water pump decide to explode and sent the impeller into a thousand pieces but, a hundred bucks and all fixed. Knock on wood no other problems but I’ve heard from a bunch of people that’s a common problem.
  14. Thursday afternoon I was out on state land almost a mile or so back. I had just saw a lone big bodied deer 100 yards or so in front of me and a fawn had just came into the stand of oaks I was sitting in it was just after 6pm. I then heard the distinct sound of an atv. Two minutes later I saw the head lights and two machines proceeded within two yards of the tree I was in, oblivious of my presence they almost caught there handle bars on my climbing sticks. If I wasn’t pissed at that point 75 yards after they got by me they came to a stop and I heard one say to the other “did you see all those deer” . I’ve been thinking about turning them into the DEC but I’m not sure if I want to open that can of worms. Oh I forgot to mention I got it all on my go pro
  15. With all due respect Sir. From everything you have overcome, in my mind you are the poster person for using a crossbow. You have the respect for game you hunt not to pursue it without being competent with a vertical bow, so in turn don’t deprive yourself of the outdoors and use whatever legal implement you can to get in the woods.
  16. Glad your ok. And not to sound like a jerk because I don’t how big you are and I’m on the bigger side( 6’ 220) but this is why tree stands have weight limits, and every year that is in service I’m sure Those ratings decrease. I try to make sure I check stands straightness in the tubes and the welds every year.
  17. It might be best to wait a year or so to get prices on building right now. Material costs are out of sight, a 4x8 sheet of 7/16 osb that was around $8 this spring is now $21 and change at the local Lowe’s.
  18. That’s sweet I have a t3 6.5 with a leupold vx-freedom 4x12 u for sure have a bucket list filler. There’s nothing finer than a tikka bolt
  19. To the point I made yesterday the state is not using its resources to its fullest extent. I live within 25 minutes of Binghamton and there plan if the hospitals get overrun is to add 50 beds in the Broome county Arena. Meanwhile SUNY Binghamton with thousands of vacant rooms sits 3 miles away. King Andy and the other politicians trying to make there name because of this terrible virus need to use common sense. A little logical thinking and they would secure these votes they covet so bad with real leadership. Also again this highly contagious virus does not need to be spread all over the state. Cancer is not contagious and shouldn’t be compared to what is going on regardless of what some slobs may feel.
  20. How many colleges are still in a on campus setting. Every dorm building I have ever been in closely resembles a hospital. How come the SUNY and CUNY dorms downstate can’t be repurposed as hospitals limiting transportation of this virus and flattening the curve
  21. I agree with the economic impacts this will and has had. I just hope cooler heads prevail and the majority of the population realizes the reaction is worse than the virus. I’m extremely worried my 93 year old grandmother may get sick and not be around anymore but I’m more concerned my 5 and 3 year old may not get to experience to life we have all enjoyed because of panic and the ensuing results that will happen. We all need to hold out hope and band together to make sure each day gets better and not worse.
  22. Please calm down man. The panic and the sky is falling mentality is what’s driving this panic. We need to ban together as Americans and not assume the worst. Things will turn back around slower than it crashed but hopefully six months from now we all look back and think how close we got to abandoning are humanity and learn for the future.
  23. I prefer to lurk on here and listen and learn from great hunters like I do on hunting beast and rarely post. Following this thread makes me think most hunters on here think the same and were always prepared for whatever scenario may pop up. It also reminds me of my childhood collecting koolaid points. Otisco Paul has won the grand prize he’s definitely drank the most koolaid of the outdoor community
  24. What a great drunken response! Eli Manning has been an example of a good person. NFL man of the year, never beat his wife, hurt his kids. I’m tired of giants fans piling on Eli for playing poorly look at the supporting cast you can’t throw the ball from your back or when your primary receiver is in a tumultuous relationship with the kicking net. Look back when Jeremy Shockey was on the team you had to bring the A game to beat the giants or just cover the loud idiot demanding the ball
