  4. Posting for a friend. We both switched to traditional archery last year but he feels he's tempted to take his compound out more often than he'd like so he thinks it's time to sell that temptation. It's a 60-70lb bow with a 26" draw length module. It comes with an Apex gear 3 pin sight, the trophy ridge drop away rest and trophy ridge quiver. He also had new string and cables installed in the fall of 2016. He's located near Olean in Cattaraugus county and would prefer to sell face to face rather than shipping. Asking price is $300.

  5. If you need any info on 325 wsm message me- I’m a new member and thought I posted to everyone. Not sure and don’t have time to check. Double tap ammo and Hendershots will make 325 ammo. I bought 10 boxes from double tap at $64 a box. Have not tried Hendershots( they are very expensive-$94to$120) but use highest quality components.When I go on expensive hunts I will splurge for Hendershots if I don’t use my reloads.

    Great caliber I own a Kimber and a Browning titanium. If you want more input message me 

  6. Though this really has little to do with this thread, Oregon actually has a relatively low whitetail population. It's estimated at around 13,000. Don't let your opinions allow you to lose sight of facts. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    2017 HuntingNY Gun Harvest Thread

    Lots of firsts for me this year. First deer ever on opening day and first with a handgun. I can't believe how incredibly lucky and blessed I've been this season. The weather was cold and rainy all morning but that didn't stop this guy from showing up at 10 a.m. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Black widow

    A buddy of mine swears by them and has used black widow for several seasons. He did switch it up this year because he found a more local source and wanted to give them a try. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  9. Coming from Pennsylvania to New York I always wondered why they had quotas by zone for the antlerless licenses during firearms season but not archery or muzzleloader. I would think it makes more sense to have a certain number of antlerless tags for each WMU and they're sold on either a first come, first served basis or on a lottery. Either way you have a chance at a tag but no gaurantee. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk
  10. I look at it as a "having your cake and eating it too" kind of thing. In PA the deer numbers used to be extremely high and seasons were pretty modest. 2 weeks of buck season with no Sunday hunting and a 3 day doe season the following week. Around the year 2000 they began running the buck and doe season concurrent for the rifle season and handed out higher numbers of doe tags than in past years. Some loved the idea and some hated it. Regardless of which side of the fence you were on, deer numbers dropped significantly and the hunting changed. The fact is, rifle season has a much larger impact of deer management than archery season does simply because the number of people out there. To me it seems rifle season is the best place to make an adjustment according to management goals. Most of the arguments I've seen on here have no mention of conservation goals, just whining about things not being "fair." Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    First Traditional Kill

    I originally wanted to go with something along the lines of a single bevel grizzly but I've heard they can be difficult to sharpen. This is the first experience I've had with serrated heads so I haven't found anything negative yet. Honestly I'm not too experienced when it come to sharpening so I usually just remove blades and take them to a honing stone. I've been looking at a couple of sharpening kits but I've heard so many mixed reviews that I don't know what to get. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Any advice?

    The goal as of right now is to get one with a bow. I know the odds are against me but I'm just happy that I've got a chance to try. The first thing I'm going to focus on is just locating some good turkey sign and evaluate what kind of tactic I think would work best. Many of the responses on this thread have given me some ideas for how I plan to react to different scenarios. I'll continue to browse some older posts and hope you guys keep throwing tips on this thread as well. I appreciate all the help tremendously, any one of these tips may just be what I need to seal the deal. Thank you! Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Any advice?

    Yea I just wasn't sure if there was a better way to go about hunting one of the flock types than another. I took thursday and Friday off work so I'm hoping to get as much first hand learning as I can in that short time. Sent from my XT1060 using Tapatalk

    Any advice?

    From my understanding (please correct me if I'm wrong) there are 3 main types of flocks during the fall. Groups of jakes, groups of toms and groups of hens with poults. If I do manage to find a group of birds that don't spot me first am I better off setting up and calling immediately or should I rush and break them up no matter what?
