  1. I just posted a climber for sale also.
  2. For sale: X stand x-1 lightweight climbing stand. Used but decent condition. I did a rattle can camo paint job and added molle (military) backpack straps. I recently sharpened the teeth which come from the factory totally blunt. This improved the bite while climbing a ton. This is a super lightweight stand. I wouldn't recommend it for a newbie or someone who wants to leave it on a tree. My heavy stands are easier to climb but this one at 10-15 pounds is by far the easiest to hike around with. No front bar. Seat is barely a seat. Good for archery. Asking $160 (new they are $280 plus shipping) including the molle backpack straps. $140 without the straps. I'm in Catskill/saugerties until Sunday afternoon, then in NYC until next weekend. Thanks.
  3. I used amato twice last year. Service was quick and he was friendly. After hours drop off was a huge convenience. Price seemed fair, especially for Westchester. Seemed like I got a decent amount of meat, and the cuts looked fine to me. Was frozen solid when I picked it up. My only complaint was that the packaging wasn't that sturdy. Ground was in super thin plastic bags. Steaks were on styrofoam with plastic wrap. Not packed to last for a long time in the freezer. I went home and repacked everything, which took a bit of time. I would go there again if I was hunting in the area though.
  4. For Sale: Kryptek Ghar puffy jacket. Medium Grey $140 shipped. I ended up with a large. This is a super well made puffy. i did my research before buying it and i'm very happy with the large. i'm 6'3", 170, 33 waist. the medium fits me with just a t-shirt on but if i put on a fleece underneath the medium is too small.
  5. For sale: sitka core heavyweight hoody size large in open country camo pattern. Brand new with tags. I'd prefer one without the hood so if you have a brand new sitka zip t or traverse get in touch. $95 shipped. I'm in the nyc area if you want to buy it in person and save a few bucks. Thanks. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-2ZSxX8J/0/33903d21/L/i-2ZSxX8J-L.jpg
  6. I went to dep property in Westchester... had a wardrobe malfunction while pulling my bag up, my over pants fell off the bag. I saw a hunter leaving the area at 3:45 and thought I would ask him to attach the pants to my pull up rope but he didnt come close enough for me to ask. Then more hunters showed up at 4:15 (!). Didnt see deer, just a lot of people.
  7. For Sale: Summit Retractable Gear Hoist. new in box. $20 shipped. Glock Double Pistol Case. New with tag. never used. padded. could also be used for a tablet computer or a sandwich. $24 shipped. pics below. thanks.
  8. I'm interested. I sent a message a few days ago.
  9. Yeah I'm out in Westchester. No action so far. Pretty windy. after tomorrow morning I guess I'm done for the year. Last year I tried Tompkins County doe management but didn't find a good spot until I had to leave.
  10. Just a shout out for Greg. Brought my crossbow buck to him at the beginning of the season. Clean shop. Processed quickly. A pleasure to deal with. Meat is wrapped nice in freezer paper and labeled. Would definitely recommend this business. Greg's mom did a European mount of the buck and it came out great. Just picked up this week.
  11. Just to follow up Im very satisfied with Greg and "down the road butchery." In Milan NY near red hook. Got a ton of meat from my buck. Packaged and labeled nicely. I would use them again.
  12. Out in the wind and rain in Putnam County. I promised my wife's friends husband I would go today otherwise I would have skipped it. No other cars parked in this public land area. Can't wait to go back upstate for the middle of the week. First time out w shotgun. Front bead sight only so I'm going to treat it like a bow/xbow and only take a very close shot.
  13. Had the same thing happen two years ago with my first xbow kill. The buck was startled but he came right back and gave me an even better shot. I Didnt make the same mistake twice.
