  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?

    Long island shed

    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.
  5. 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

    AR lower receiver, build my 1st AR

    For any kind of lowers, you do need to ship them to the local FFL first, right?

  9. 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

    You're right, Old forge is a tourist area, seems like a nice place for snowmobile.

    32.4" of Snow in 72 Hrs.- Deer Hunting Intermission

    Does the bad weather affect deer moving? Let's say the rain or windy weather.

    Is this normal? or I just had a bad luck.

    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.
  15. 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!

    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.

    Bear scent question.

    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
