  1. Hello everyone, I'm going to hunt coyotes around Albany area this year. I have my call and AR with wicked lights ready to hunt. I'm going to spend couple days to scout some statelands around Albany area, but before I'm heading into the woods, I would like to get some help with locating the hunting spots. Any places within 30-40 mins drive from Albany that are ideal for coyotes hunt?
  2. Nov-9, 4J, Albany area. Saw a young buck and few Does that were 40-50 yards away. they didn't pay any attention to each other.
  3. Before you go hunt in long island, make sure you get the access permit from DEC website. It's free and valid for 3 years. I used to hunt in Long island, man, I spent few hours to study the regulations and still got confused.
  4. Thank you Sir! I found them on a gun shop on Central Ave today!
  5. For any kind of lowers, you do need to ship them to the local FFL first, right?
  6. Thank you very much for the info! I just bought an Anderson lower and a Ruger lower, now I'm looking for a good website to purchase uppers. Do you have any suggestions?
  7. Hi guys, I'm trying to build my first NY compliant AR. I'm plan to buy a stripped lower receiver online and have it ship to a local FFL, I live in upstate NY, Albany capital region. Can anyone recommend me some decent local FFL? Or if you guys know any gun stores have AR lower for sale? If you guys have any tips for building AR, I would really appreciate that if you could share with me. Best regards! --Shawn
  8. Cool pictures. this place sounds like a zoo, lol
  9. You're right, Old forge is a tourist area, seems like a nice place for snowmobile.
  10. I heard people say there are tons of bear in old forge area. So I went there last week, I don't really know that area and I just google the state land that is around the town of old forge. (one is called Ha-De-Ron-Dah and the other one is next to Nicks Lake ). I did see some bear droppings, but didn't see any bear, not even a deer. It's seems like old forge is a vacation place, it's good for hikers not for hunters. Anyone hunt that area? Any idea where I should go to look for bear? Thanks! Good luck this season everyone! Best regards, --Shawn
  11. Does the bad weather affect deer moving? Let's say the rain or windy weather.
  12. you're right, I checked one of my camera which is not far from my stand, I saw more deer during night time than daytime. Hope the when the rut kicks in, they will show up during the day.
  13. Thanks for the info. I have seen 2-3 tree stands in that area, it's a really high presser area. I'll figure out another spot.
  14. Is it normal that you sit on the tree stand in the woods all day long and didn't see any deer at all? I mean, Not even ONE. I have been hunting this place more than 10 times, only saw a Doe and it was like 40 yards away.The reason I hunt this place a lot cuz it's only 10 mins away from my house. I think I picked a "Not bad" spot which next to a lot of old rubs, some fresh rubs and deer droping. There are also few trails near by. It's kinda weird that you srounded by lots of deer signs but hardly see any deer. Feel kinda disappointed but won't give up. Do I need to switch to different spot if I keep hunting in the same area? Leave the place rest for few days before next hunt? As always, appreciate the useful tips from you guys. Stay safe, good luck hunting!
  15. Hello,everyone, I'm new to bear hunting, going to try this year. I know baiting is illegal in NY, but a small amount of attractant scent is allowed (2 oz). Since I have no experience at all, so I'm thinking to use some attractant scent during my first bear hunt. There are lots of bear scent/bait on the market, but I'm not really sure which one is legal in NY state. I have attached some products pic, would like to hear some advice from you guys. Thanks for looking. Best, ---Shawn
  16. Good job!! You picked a really good hunting spot.
  17. Not too well, been out couple times around catskill, didn't find any bear sign. Anyway, I'll do more homework. Thanks for asking.
  18. Hello, everyone. I would like to ask you guys some tips for bear hunting. I absolutely have no experience about bear hunting, I would like to try this coming 2016 early bear season. I live in Albany, any good places to scouting for bears? Last year I saw one when I was hunting for deer near catskil. I think it's nice just hanging in the woods looking for bear while scouting for deer tracks. Anyway,hope you guys can give me some tips for bear hunting. Thanks you very much! Good luck to your hunting trip!
  19. You live in NYC? I know a spot that is 1:30 drive from city, I got lots of coyotes on my trail cam.
  20. haha, you are right, lot of ticks and deer in pine bush. Hope next season you can harvest one!
  21. Thanks Froggy, 40 years hunting must be a great journey! I bet I will learn a lot from you guys.
