  1. Buddy let me borrow this since I pulled/tore my bicep tendon... Thing is impressive.. I won't be testing this thing at any distance, all my stands are set for 30 yards max, LOL..
  2. PERFECT!!! You guys rock!!! Thanks for the link... EXACTLY what I was looking for, must have been reading to fast.. Appreciate it guys..
  3. Is an X Bow considered "unloaded" if there is no bolt but it is still "Drawn and locked back"? or do you have to have the bow uncocked for it to be considered unloaded?? I can't find the rule in the regs. If you do, can you tell me or provide the link to it???
  4. I popped a bicep tendon in my left arm (I'm left handed) back in July this summer, I am still at PT 2-3 times a week, can't draw my bow. Thankfully, NY has the option the last two weeks so I can get out. I honestly hope you never get hurt like this, but if you do, you will be VERY happy X Bows are legal in your state..
  5. Cool!! I knew they made only 1 I think that is sadly. Love them. How is it? Quiet? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Thought Excaliber's were illegal in NY because of draw weight????
  7. This bear waited for my wife and I to go to bed, you can see him looking into my living room. The suet feeder he took off my deck I can't touch if I stand where he did, I'm 5'9". Bear has to be a 7 footer, thinking well over 400lbs.. He came back the following spring, I walked him off my property with the watering can in the pic!! Wife was screaming at me, bear was never more than 30 yards from me, popping his jaws and huffing... VERY cool to witness, after that, I kept my DW 41 magnum handy... Chased off 4 other bears that year... No clue what was bringing them in, I took all the feeders down after this bear, they never came back..
  8. That was first. Came out awesome. Wife lived it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Mixed 1lb of garlic/cheese bear sausage with 1lb bear burger, smoked them in my Camp Chef till they hit 150 degrees then seared them in cast iron till the hit 165 degrees. First bite I said "Why did I wait so long to hunt them" it was that good. Wife and friend loved them. I didnt add a thing to it, wanted to try it as is. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  11. This will be my 4th GSP, Red, her half brother is by far my best yet. Let's see what she will do. Here she is today with him. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. OK.. the forum stopped me from liking any more posts!! Wow!! Thanks guys... OK.. Think I have everyone's questions answered below.. I used a T/C Pro Hunter 30-06 barrel, Federal Fusion 180gr ammo No, we are not allowed to bait bears in Ma., this was hunting over corn fields getting hit by bears. My boar weighed in at 260lbs, sent a tooth in for aging but will have to get back to you when they let me know. My youth hunter shot a 112lb sow. If I missed anyone's question, please let me know and I will remedy it.. Here is a pic of my youth hunters bear
  13. Got a new farm in MA this year, well over 450 acres, but farmer hates bears. Said I could hunt anything I wanted there, just had to hunt bears. So, started scouting in July, set up stands and ground blinds. Working with my Son and a youth hunter I've been mentoring for the past 5 years we all got into it. Started seeing bears hitting the corn the end of August, stands were set up perfectly. Opening day of the first season (3 weeks long) was Sept. 3rd, we had seen zero sign of any other people hunting.. My son and I go out, a guy walks into my son on stand 30 minutes before end of hunting time, say's "ooops" and walks off.. My son texts me, "My hunt is now over". I check my cameras, 4 other guys walking around during the day with rifles. I'm thinking "really?"... Whatever.. not my land, hunt how you want.. We hunt that week, no bears, just seeing more signs of other hunters.. Second week, my son can't go, youth hunter is big into hockey (An awesome player, 16.5 years old playing in a U20 league with 19 and 20 year old's), he can't go so I bring a buddy that owns the parents of my GSP Red and Sky. I can't go by myself because of an inflamed bicep tendon I can't drag anything. we hunt 2nd week, I pass on a small bear at like 2 yards, he see's another hunter and 2 couples, 1 driving around the cornfield he was hunting in a truck, the other couple just walking around.. I'm thinking "Good lord, it has to get better".. I hunt this week, last week of the first season, weather is PERFECT... Temps are cool... winds are perfect for our stands.. don't see any first night.. Last night, my last night I can hunt, my son was supposed to go, had to work, youth hunter and I go.. 6:45 I shoot this brute at 20 yards, 30 minutes later, my youth hunter, first time he's hunted now, shoots a small sow.. No one was out all week, they gave up, we persisted.. and scored big!!! Sorry for the long story but it was worth telling I think.. I'll have him weighed soon and post his weight.. check the skull on this guy!!!! This is the first year I ever hunted bears other than one hunt back in 1990, in Canada with the bow.. Going to be damn near impossible to beat this one but I will keep trying.. I am hooked..
  14. She got pick of the litter over the weekend... Kind of cool... This is my 4th GSP, first ever POTL...
