  1. Garlic salt is also pretty good if you like garlic salt.
  2. Here the leaves ae falling before turning. Not much color here. Not sure how accurate it is but here is the NY state link. New York Fall Foliage Report | Experience Peak Fall Colors in NY (iloveny.com) Definitely my favorite time of year.
  3. Call it as you may. Maybe you should start admitting what you really are.
  4. Think what you want and I will do the same. I will no longer stoop to your level to debate semantics and leave myself open to receive your cheap shots about my lack of intelligence or ability to reason.
  5. Sightings have dropped off and it appears they are only moving at night once again. Still a few around but haven't caught any of the big guys recently. Turkeys are still enjoying the soybeans and coyotes are still cruising. Looks like there may be a tree legged doe around to.
  6. I think the more important question would be how many fit the definition: Who is considered a patriot? a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion. a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.
  7. As many as 1100 plus. They are expected to be placed in their new communities between now and March 31 and include up to: 100 in Albany 335 in Buffalo 240 in the New York City area 200 in Rochester 248 in Syracuse 20 in Utica Notice Albany only get 100 From the governor: We welcome our new Afghan friends with open arms and pledge to provide them the assistance they can rely on to rebuild anew. As many as 1,143 Afghan evacuees coming to NYS, up to 335 expected in Buffalo (wkbw.com)
  8. These guys have been showing up pretty regular also:
  9. Turkeys Hanging around:
  10. It's been an interesting summer. Not in a good way but one like I have never experienced. On a positive note, this year the farmer that works my field did no till soybeans and once they came up it seemed to draw the wildlife like we have never had before. One day in July I looked out about 7:30 pm and counted 18 bucks out there at once. I began to pay more attention on a daily basis and they stared showing up every night religiously between 7:45 and 8:30. I never saw 18 together again but there have been between 4 and 11 just about every night. I set the spotting scope up on a tripod and watched them every night for about a month. The most interesting part for me is the fact that most of them were tall & wide 8 points. I have only seen a couple of spikes and small four points. At one point there were a couple of nice 10 points but I believe one got killed on the road not far away. The other ironic event was three hen turkeys hung out there all summer with about 6 poults and are still here. The hens would form a circle around them and kept the poults in the middle for quite some time. I got to witness the first time they flew up to roost and when they came down the next day. One of the hens flew up first, then the poults flew up one at a time while the other two hens stayed on the ground until they were all up. The next morning one hen flew down, then the poults, and then the other two hens. Believe it or not; I also got to see the deer interact with the turkeys on a couple of occasions and actually witnessed what looked like the deer were playing tag with the turkeys. There were many evenings they were browsing within feet of each other. I have lived here 25 years and have never seen the population of deer I have seen this year. I don't know if it is the soybeans or what but they have really been a draw for sure. I finally put a couple of trail cams out in hopes of getting pictures of the bigger bucks but they have been dodging the cameras on a regular basis even when I move them to different locations. Based on the cameras and lack of sightings the last few days all indications are they are beginning to disperse and move at night. Last night I shined the field and counted 14 deer in the field bedded down about 9:30 pm I've seen more mature doe than usual and only a few fawns. With so much going on it has been the highlight of my summer along with Nomad picking up (and delivering) some primers when none were to be had just about anywhere. Hell of a guy!!! Historically this property has not produced in years past so I will probably be hunting state land a lot more this year. I lost access to the adjoining 60 acres I have enjoyed for the last 20 years due to the owner(s) dying and disputes in the family. It was my best spot to trap fox and coyotes plus I had it all to myself during trapping. I will continue to trap my own property but it won't be the same and it was a great place to bow hunt along with being very convenient. I can only hope one of these guys shows up when I am in my stand and not when I am hunting state land.
  11. I promised to view our new Governor with a open mind but it didn't take her long to disappoint me. First she picks the Lieutenant Governor from New York City and now she bans the sales of combustion engines. New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation on Wednesday that effectively bans the sale of new internal combustion engine cars, off-road vehicles, light-duty trucks and equipment by 2035.

  12. Monroe County executive Adam Bello announced yesterday that Monroe county will be accepting at least another 200 Afghan refugees and has designated that the Monroe County Veterans Service Agency will be offering benefits to these refugees. “I’ve directed the Monroe County veteran’s service agency to offer benefits to these refugees which include access to mental health programs, employment resources and connecting them with a law office which is helping provide legal assistance,” Bello said. I hope anyone in Monroe county or anyone interested will voice their opposition to the decision to divert resources from Veteran services for any reason other than their intended purpose. 110 County Office Building39 W.
