  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I'm interested. I sent a message a few days ago.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Yessir saugerties Catskill area. Not a big social media guy, not that I have anything to hide.
  14. Thanks. Funny thing is I would have been stoked to take a doe with bow or xbow. Really wasn't waiting for /looking for antlers.
  15. I just dropped my buck off with Greg last night after finding this post. He's a young guy with a professional setup in his garage. Big cold room, clean. I'm not going to recommend him before I pick up the meat and try it, but so far so good. Price quoted is just over a hundred for the normal cuts. I'll give an update in a few days.
  16. 0830 am Greene County. 20-25 yard shot. He came out of heavy brush, pretty loud, moving in a straight line to my stand. He ran a good bit but I heard the crash from my spot. Pse fang xbow.
  17. Huge buck came out of heavy brush and walked up a hill diagonally towards my ladder stand. Don't know if he smelled the evercalm that didn't seem to work the last several sits. Don't know if he heard my doe grunt call I hit maybe a half hour before. All I know is he was coming in my direction on a mission. Moving slowly I brought the xbow up and took safety off. Estimated he was around 20-25 yards when I shot. He took off and I heard some crashing in the woods. Followed an amazing blood trail a little over an hour later. Blood on both sides of his prints.
  18. So I've been following this thread for the last few weeks. When weather permits, I read it from the woods. More often, I read it while stuck at work in the city. Last several sits were pretty uneventful... I took a bear w bow (first and only bow kill) then switched to xbow last week... Been hunting Putnam and Westchester (w bow) during the work week and private land in Greene County when I have a day or two off. Yesterday I didn't see anything all day. This morning I was out and in place way before six. Didn't hear or see anything. Knew I had to head back to the city in the afternoon so I was pretty bummed. Until 0830...
  19. Not really my business what or where people shoot. This is my first season checking out Westchester so I'm trying to understand the rules... As I understand it, the bobcat thing would be legal on private land or maybe on nyc property but not in the Westchester County management areas (which have tons of regulations).
  20. I was just reading the many many many rules for the Westchester County management program. Says deer only. the nyc watershed property is different.
  21. to me its the difference between having to carefully ambush a deer on his/her route vs being in the right place to get a shot when they are chasing each other and not paying attention to anything else. Btw if anyone has experience hunting in Westchester big peninsula / louden and wants to give me some tips I'd appreciate it. Private message is fine. I went to the peninsula today for the first time to scout.
