Please stay tuned for upcoming educational outreach to help keep our BOW community connected, such as online classes, video tutorials, and small Beyond BOW events! We look forward to seeing you again in person when we resume workshops. If you would like to obtain your hunter education certificate, you can take a New York State online course.

  4. If you watch the second link which is a longer version you will see the police were there. I doesn't look like they were involved very much or took any action. I think these days unless it is a life or death situation they are hesitant to get involved.

  6. June 27-28 is Free Fishing Weekend in New York State New York has a Free Fishing Weekend coming up June 27 – 28. The event is the second of six free fishing days offered in New York State every year. New York residents and non-residents are permitted to fish for free without a fishing license. Although DEC is waiving the requirement for a fishing license during free fishing days, all other fishing regulations remain in effect. DEC encourages all anglers, new and experienced, to recreate locally and seek out fishing opportunities close to home. DEC’s Places to Fish webpages are a reliable source for those ready to plan their next fishing trip. For beginning anglers interested in getting started, the I FISH NY Beginners' Guide to Freshwater Fishing provides information on everything from rigging up a fishing rod, to identifying your catch, and understanding fishing regulations.
  7. No bait required if you know where the hole is. Catch & kill if it is coming or going. More than likely a trap setter will be needed: #160 Body Trap
  8. Fantastic video with wonderful outdoor scenery
  9. # 35 showed up later today...that's a wrap for turning them loose
  10. Nice pics! One was reported seen in W. Bloomfield this past week and a picture was posted. Pretty unusual for this neck of the woods.
  11. # 34 this morning.....enough is enough....after 35 I start drowning
  12. Didn't bother with a picture but got # 33 today. I wasn't in a killing mood so I took the walk and set it free.
  13. I have been taking them approx. 350 yard from the house and turning them loose in a hedgerow with nothing around but woods and field.. I didn't really want to make a special trip to get paint. Ever try to paint one?? They don't stay still for very long and I believe they could actually dodge the spray. This morning I check the trap and sure enough # 32 is there. As I crossed the yard I see another one scamper across the grass. WTF . I think the turning loose process is about to come to and end and we will see if they can indeed swim.
  14. A little tip. When I was catching two or three a day for a few days in a row I finally started emptying the trap into a 5 gallon bucket. At the end of the day I would just make one trip to the woods instead of 3 trips a day. I still think I should have spray painted them to see if they were coming back
