    Took a ride up to the Alchemist and Lawson in Vermont. Fully stocked with deliciousness for a while.
  2. Ok, everyone is in agreement that it is a bobcat. I read that average size is between 21-14lbs. But they can get to more than 30. It looks considerably bigger than 30 to me based on the Pennsylvania chest girth equation. How heavy would you guess?
  3. Not sure what this is in the first 2 pictures? A large bobcat? I added pictures of coyotes and a obvious bobcat for reference. Please tell me your thoughts. My property is in Hancock NY (4W).
  4. Thank you very much Sean. We definitely don't see many big deer taken by us. I'm extremely lucky and was in the right place at the right time. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  5. My biggest was taken this year Monday morning after opening weekend. My first 8pt. Although I should be smiling in the pic, I could not be happier with the harvest. He is a small deer compared to most of the monsters on here but is a trophy to me.
  6. Yes but what kind of rain gear would Jesus wear?

    Hunting has been tough this year for me. The weather was awful. We are heading up this weekend. Hoping for decent hunting weather. Definitely get a bow you will be addicted in no time. The end of October early November is an amazing time in the woods.
  9. Nice job Sean. That worked out perfectly. This story brought up a scenario that I hadn't given any thought. I thank you for sharing your experiance. I am now prepared on what I will do if I am caught in the moment.
  10. This is the view from the state land ledges near where I hunt. Not sure if you ever hiked up there.
  11. Nice job Zem. Congrats on a nice buck. Way to follow up on the initial shot. I get the shaking leg syndrome almost every time! Sorry we missed you guys. Next year? Lol
  12. What do you guys do with ladder stands? Anyone using a lifeline? That's pretty much all I use but do not have a lifeline set up. Thoughts?
  13. Sorry if this is long winded. I am from long island and have property near hancock. It is really tough for me to get time away from work and family to hunt. Long island hunting doesn't interest me at all. For me it's all about getting away. Getting camp all set up, having a few cold ones by the fire, breaking each other's balls, eating some good food, strategizing over where to go and the anticipation of the hunt. Then once in the woods all that comes with it. Seeing the woods "wake up", so many species of animals that I am fortunate to have watched. Then culminating with actually harvesting a deer. How many points is really inconsequential. The whole experience is special to me. Every small racked buck is a trophy to me. I think it comes down to why do you hunt. Whatever your reason is it should be respected and not questioned. Just my 2 ¢
