  1. This is not really about ammo. If you purchase 30-06 rounds they will add a 30-06 next to your name in their gun registry. They are doing everything they can to learn who has what for the day they come door to door (their ultimate goal)'
  2. I tried a couple of these maybe six years ago. The ones I bought were perhaps six feet tall on close out from wally world. First years growth was unremarkable. Second year they became blighted and stems started cracking open and I feared they might die. Someone (G Man?) posted that the blight does not survive in the soil, only in the plant. I packed the cracks in the stems with mud and duck taped the mud in. It actually worked. I no longer own the property, having abandoned NY for Florida (where I am free to enjoy my 2A rights). But, I sometimes drive past the property and can see that they are now about 10 foot tall. If I were still in NY, I doubt I would buy more.
  3. I received an online NYSDEC survey (Cornell) yesterday. They wanted to know what I hunted,which area of the state I hunted, number of trips, and numbers of animals harvested. There was even a question asking if I hunted frogs and turtles. Glad I was able to contribute. I sometimes hear about these surveys, but seldom are selected to participate.
  4. you guys that fish Cayuga might want to think twice about eating fish from Cayuga. DEC is dumping TONS of herbicide into the lake to try to control hydrilla- and weed beds are disappearing. A group has been formed called "Cayuga anglers for poison free lakes" and they have been meeting with area politicians demanding answers. They have a Facebook page where they have posted quite a bit of info including copies of the DEC permits. One permit shows that DEC applied 12,000 lbs of herbide in a 123 acre area! Last I knew the group has 600 followers -mostly bass anglers. For what it is worth, several of my friends have absolutely been nailing the perch at Sodus.
  5. When I was stationed in Hawaii I would often see a dead mongoose flattened in the road being guarded by its' mate. This would often lead to the death of both. I never saw more than 2 at once- and my unit spent a lot of time in the field.
  6. I read the other day that the US Army was contracting for 3 BILLION dollars of additional ammo. Mostly for Ukraine. Ammo components are going to be tough to find.
  7. Average bill is about $125. Then again, I'm in the Sunshine state
  8. I'll take either one! This 80+ degrees and bugs here in Florida just kills my desire to hunt.
  9. Many years ago I remember seeing 23 piebald deer in a winter wheat field. This was in Newfield, NY (near Shelter Valley Rd). This was in mid March and the snow was just leaving the hills. I remember the time of year because I was there to check on the rainbow trout run in Cayuga Inlet. Anyway, there were also 100+ hungry brown whitetails in the same field, but they did NOT associate with the piebald deer. I watched them for over 30 minutes and the two groups avoided each other. I imagine that's not the case during the rut!
  10. I did before I posted! Did you?
  11. The regulation you quote applies to areas where centerfire rifles are not legal during the deer season. Does not apply to most areas of NYS.
  12. Perfectly legal to blast coyotes before legal shooting time for deer.
  13. DeSantis has my vote. He has promised to sign constitutional carry if it reaches his desk.
  14. This is all pending appeal. Blocked the requirement to turn over social media accounts. Did away with requirement to turn over data on everyone living with you. Eliminated the face to face interview requirement. Says that private businesses and residences are not sensitive places. OK's carry on public transport such as subways. OK's carry in Times Square. Allows carry in entertainment venues and bars! Probably several other things I'm forgetting. Undoubtedly this will be tied up in the courts for a long time.
  15. Same study showed that black "children" were 4X more likely to die in firearms related incidents than white "children". Firearms are not the leading cause of death for white children. When my first child was born in 1973 my wife was 20 years old- the state of Hawaii considered that a "teen age pregnancy". WTF
  16. When you realize that 20 million people in Florida have normal electrical service this meme loses much of it's intended meaning. Our utility here in central Fl is reporting zero outages- 2 days after Ian visited here as a Cat 1.
  17. Not just a background check to purchase ammo. Your info will go into a database maintained by NYS Police to track what you bought (caliber and # of rounds), where you bought it and of course YOU.
  18. There is a FaceBook group called Steuben County Bear Sightings. It has 5,000 members. Pics and videos of local bears are posted almost daily. Robust population in the Corning area (including in town). I am surprised at how many of them are cinnamon color phase. Door bells cams pick up a large number of bears that would otherwise pass undetected.
  19. I drive Finger Lakes to Florida several times a year. Avoid 95 in northern Virginia during daylight hours at all costs. It once took us 2 hours to go 30 miles. DC area dead of night is usually OK. I usually take the I295 bypass around Richmond. Don't recommend exceeding the speed limit there, area is often heavily patrolled with little speed tolerance (3 over can be a problem). Green Top is worth a stop (think ammo). I recommend Waze, good to know where the hazards and smokies are at. Happy trails!
  20. For the record it's Treman (named for the donor of the land) State Park, not "treeman. Also, there is Treman Marine Park in Ithaca in addition to the SP.
  21. I have a Leupold VX-3i 3.5x10x40 on my 25.06. Works great at the distances I shoot, but then I don't really do much shooting at ranges over 200 yards.
