  1. Doe I poked past weekend is butchered and in freezer. Out for what is likely the final sit in 3g. Very foggy, slight NE wind and 43°. Feels like late October! Good luck to all still out there. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Deer Hunting Montauk State Park

    I hunted there during a few bow seasons never firearms. At the time at least, there weren't check stations during bow (there was during firearms) but I believe that you needed to carry a land access permit for the state park. The DEC has, or at least had, a special place on their website for East end hunting opportunities with the details and rules. My recollection was there was a phone number listed that I called and got very helpful assistance. It is much thicker than hither hills. Lots of scrub brush and visibility was very difficult. Loaded with deer and Giants, but a hard hunt and even harder recovery. Paths were well maintained but I could only see two or three feet into the thicket on either side of the path Tons of ticks as well. There is plenty to be had there, but you have your work cut out for you. There's a reason they hang there. Best of luck. If I think of anything else, I will post.

  3. Son was skiing at Jiminy Peak in MA today and I was going to give a shot on some public land in the capital District. Decided I didn't want to leave him in case, God forbid, anything happened to him on the slopes and took a nice long power nap in the back seat of the truck instead. Plus I wasn't really feeling it. Drove home on 22 all the way. Herds of deer all out in the fields. More deer on the drive than I have seen all season. After seeing that I have to admit I am very jealous of those of you who have good ag lands around them. Just amazing to see compared to hunting the suburban woods. Good luck to all going out for last day of their regular season tomorrow. I will head out for a humbling sit on my less productive woods [emoji3]. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Capital District WMA

    That's what I figured. Looks like pretty easy terrain on the map, nice and flat with a few clear cuts. If I am motivated at zero dark thirty to pack my crap in the truck I will give it a shot. Thanks. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Capital District WMA

    My oldest's ski team is heading to Jiminy Peak in MA for practice tomorrow. I was just called into carpool duty for the trip. I don't ski and am debating throwing the hunting gear in the truck for a public land hunt in the capital area tomorrow rather than sitting in a lodge for 8 hours. I found the Capital District WMA in 4L as a close spot but have no local knowledge. Anyone hit it recently? Not looking for tips or honey holes, just a sense of if it's worth it to bring the gear and if it's mobbed by orange army. Thanks in advance. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Xbow full inclusion??

    Again, I forget. Am I supposed to root for the Baathist's, the Sunni's, the Kurds or the Salafi's? Very confused. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Thanks. Not too far away from me. May give it a look next year. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Do you hunt CT? Worth it in terms of opportunity for a public land hunter? Always wondered as I pretty much live on the border. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Xbow full inclusion??

    It does make my morning and evening train rides a little more enjoyable. I do end up getting pretty confused at some point about what we are arguing. Sometimes I feel like I am watching news coverage of the Syrian civil war, trying to figure out on whose side I am. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
  10. I am working from home tomorrow and plan to post over my neighbor's Arborvitae for an early morning sit. They will look like ice cream cones in a few weeks. I am going to ask him if I can sit in his minivan in his driveway to stay warm. [emoji3] Good luck to all still out there. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk

    Xbow full inclusion??

    I thought we usually waited until after predator season wrapped to have this argument. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
  12. Quiet sit in 3g while the Giants tried every way possible to give away a game. After the two doe I kicked up on arrival nothing else moved through. Good luck to all those out there this week. I am probably done until Friday or Saturday. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
  13. Out in the mist and fog in 3G. 46 degrees, barely any wind. Bump two does getting settled in. They hung for a while then moved off. Not on the menu. Hopefully something comes to check out their trail. Good luck to all out there. Very eery here, like a Stephen King novel. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
  14. Was hoping you would connect this am. I pulled the plug early with zero sightings to get a jump on Christmas decorations at the house. On the bright side, I finished smoking venison kielbasa from the doe I poked last weekend. For a first attempt not bad. Weather is supposed to suck tomorrow. I may give it a go if I wake up and it isn't pouring. Good luck if if you change your mind and get out there before the season is up. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
  15. Good luck Biz. Heavy fog here in 3G. Very low visibility. I think a deer would need to tap me on the shoulder for me to see it. Hope it's clearer by you. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using Tapatalk
