    Nice story and nice buck, congratulations!
  2. Lots of excellent advice here from experienced trackers. I agree with everything Rob suggested. I have been involved with at least a hundred archery track jobs for myself and friends/family. This is not advice but just an observation. Assuming that the archery hit deer has not been pushed for at least a hour, they will generally bed within a hundred-two hundred yards if mortally hit. When tracking a deer that has not bedded within that distance we have recovered very, very few deer. And we are persistent.

    ML question

    It will probably go bang. But there is a potential problem of the primer going off but the powder does not ignite. This could push the bullet part way down the barrel. If that happens it may be more difficult to push the bullet out and sure as hell you never want to try another primer after one has ignited until you are sure the barrel has been cleared.
  4. I believe you said they test all dead deer, I said they will eventually test every captive deer. And there is no need to test every harvested deer. You should do some research on how statistics works.
  5. There is more to their efforts than testing dead deer. There has been an education program, new legislation and enforcement of such. All of this requires resources, that is dollars. Apparently their program has been somewhat successful. You seem unhappy that dead captive deer have to be tested. Sooner or later I imagine they will require testing of all captive deer for CWD.
  6. It seems like the state has invested quite a bit to control CWD withing NYS so I would think the DEC would want to investigate this. The fawn picture sure presents differently than the your first two pictures.
  7. Sad. Please let us know what the DEC has to say after they come out.
  8. Here are some pictures of deer with CWD. https://www.google.com/search?q=pictures+of+deer+with+chronic+wasting+disease&source=hp&ei=mt1YYeyVG_uNwbkP0NezMA&iflsig=ALs-wAMAAAAAYVjrqtp3pi3GjB2TRIWBU3WYlaJDIDws&oq=pictures+of+deer+with+chronic+wasting+disease&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYAjIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIECAAQCjIECAAQCjIECAAQCjIECAAQCjoRCC4QgAQQsQMQxwEQ0QMQkwI6CwguEIAEEMcBEKMCOggIABCABBCxAzoRCC4QgAQQsQMQgwEQxwEQowI6DgguEIAEELEDEMcBEKMCOgsIABCABBCxAxCDAToFCC4QgAQ6CAguEIAEELEDOgsILhCxAxDHARCjAjoICAAQsQMQgwE6BwgAEIAEEAo6BQgAEIYDULQZWP9XYOVtaABwAHgAgAFbiAHoDJIBAjIymAEAoAEB&sclient=gws-wiz
  9. Wow, two mature deer. It would appear something bad is going on. I do hope someone will be able to put them down and end their suffering.
  10. Yeah, that might even be big enough to drag out your buck!
  11. I also took my hunter safety course in 1970. It was taught by one of my teachers (Thank you Mr. Sinowski) at my high school on weekends. He brought some guns to class (A 22 and a single shot 10 gauge). Part of the class materials back then involved some photos of a hunter who had been shot squarely in the forehead. That would be a "trigger" today. My how things have changed. By the way, me and a buddy went rabbit hunting many times with that teacher and my math teacher, good times and good guys.
  12. I have seen a few small flocks with poults while driving around northern Cayuga and Oswego counties but none on the farm. Today I finally saw a lone hen with 6 poults that were softball sized. I don't know if they can put on enough weight to survive at this point. She was very protective of her brood.
  13. I have had treestands stolen and damaged on private property. Our property, actually. This was not done by antihunters, everyone hunts and the property is not close to a road. The land is posted, people still encroach. I am hopeful that mandatory orange will decrease the number of trespassers. By the way, we have an understanding with most of the neighbors, everyone has permission to track a wounded deer and nobody abuses the privilege. When I used to hunt state land I have heard slugs whistle over my head. On hilly terrain a treestand does not guarantee safety. We always wear orange and insist that any guest hunters do also. And also they wear a safety harness if they use one of our stands.
