  1. For the past 2 days when I log on this site I get an ad for "Smutstone". I get out of it and don't read it, but it APPEARS to be a game with cartoon porn . I don't get the ad anywhere else.
  2. As I wrote previously, the meat from the game that I shot with Nahele Outfitters had been donated. Tonight, I was advised by them that 70 lbs. of meat from the bull that I shot was donated to feed the hungry. It made my Thanksgiving weekend a happy one.
  3. Sounds like a cool business. An iguana would make a great mount. That reminds me that years back I was given a pretty big dead lizard , which I mounted. I thought that it came out pretty good and guess my old coon hound thought so too because she chewed up and even ate a bit of it. I figured that it'd kill the old girl, but she didn't even get sick.
  4. A year, or so ago I read about iguana hunting with airguns in Puerto Rico. Looked like fun
  5. I forgot to mention that after I skinned the rattler I found 2 whole animals inside his stomach and some mouse remains. I think that I misidentified the small mammals at the time and now believe that they were both red squirrels. I couldn't wait to tell people down here, where I worked, about my great " manly" hunt. However, when I was telling my story a woman that I worked with asked why I had to shoot it. She said when she was a young girl she killed them with a broom... so much for my story and my young man's ego. I waited too long to salt the skin and left it in my car and when I eventually got home it stunk so bad that I had to throw it away. I kept the rattle, but have no idea where I put it. By he way, bbq rattler did not taste like chicken !
  6. In the late 60's it was legal to shoot timber rattlers and there was a $5.00 bounty on them in Warren County, but the bounty was only paid to residents who lived there. At that time they called Tongue Mountain the Rattlesnake Capitol of New York. In July of '69 I almost stepped on one on that mtn. and shot it. It was about 5'3" long. Shortly thereafter someone I know went up there to hunt for them and shot one also. There was even a guide that offered rattlesnake hunts. A law enforcement officer up there told me that they were around Bolton Landing also and told me a couple of stories. I have not been up that way in years, but I assume that there are still a number of them up there.
  7. If you are going to hunt the coop, or other DEC lands on LI . you will need to get the management access permit & check off the box for night hunting. I haven’t night hunted there in many years so I’m not sure of the rules. I’d call the DEC and ask about it before you do. i coon hunted there, but I had coon hounds so the hunting that you want to do is substantially different . I have never called in a coon . I have squalled them down after they were treed, or. had them expose themselves for a shot . Hunters have called them in , but I never could. I called in lots of red fox, but no coons . I can’t help you with fox spots because most of my old spots won’t allow you access . I don’t shoot foxes, I just have called them in & photographed them , or just observed them. I’m not opposed to shooting them, I just never shot one. (they fascinate me) I used many different mouth calls except for a couple of times in the Adirondacks and called in gray fox with a taped call. I may not be able to help you, but you can pm me if you think I can. I am currently not in NY and may not get back to you right away, but I will when I get back(I’m doing this on a phone & am new at this Cell phone stuff & I have a computer in NY that I know how to use better) good luck
  8. Vancouver Bull steak & potatoes. The Bull was from the tropical rainforests on Mauna Loa , Hawaii
  9. Tonight I am going to roast , or bbq a Vancouver Bull fillet . I just seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic(olive) oil.
  10. I hunted with Nahele for Vancouver bulls this morning. We saw bulls, cows, boar, turkeys and some mouflons with one having great horns. We heard bulls and tried to stalk a few different bulls but couldn’t get close for a shot . Around 11 am We stalked close enough to get a good shot into this bull with the 300 Winchester Magnum It was a fun hunt, and we covered a lot of ground
  11. Where the Red Fern Grows Hound Dog Man..I especially liked the song by Fabian.
  12. I haven't coon hunted in decades, but a couple of magazines had reports from local coon hunting clubs including some in New York. If the magazines are still published maybe you'd find a local club. I remember Full Cry magazine and American Cooner magazine.
  13. I hope that you get to go..... There are a lot of turkeys in some areas where I have hunted and I've had that dream too. Unfortunately I am not usually in Hawaii during the turkey season.
  14. The deer that I referred to as "nearby" in my post was at that exit at 107 and I later saw a photo also
  15. I've seen them in Cold Spring Harbor and know that they are in Laurel Hollow and Oyster Bay, but never thought they'd go so far south. First light.. My friend, who sent me the photos and updates had the same thoughts about the power lines . When they were first seen he sent me a satellite map and somehow he outlined that power cut that goes into Levittown and how he believed that they got down there. (I have to learn how to pull up a map like that and outline a route) Tonight I was sent another photo of deer , but these were in Wantagh yesterday, or today.. Maybe the same deer ????
  16. The other day I received a message , with photos of deer spotted in Levittown, and also of another one in another area nearby, but I'm not sure exactly what town it was in(It was near an exit of the parkway).. I got another message today of another sighting , but not sure if it's one of the same deer.Two of the deer were walking down a street not far from Hempstead TPK.. I saw fox in Massapequa, but never heard of deer in that part of Nassau County.
  17. I just returned from Hawaii . I shot a nice billy .

    Good luck on your upcoming hunt and have a great vacation .

      thanks..( I just saw this message(July 15))

  18. After boar hunting in November the outfitter said that since I had taken a few boars with them maybe I would consider a goat hunt in May . I had hunted goats at Parker Ranch, but not with Nahele so I said that I would. On the morning of the hunt, when we reached the property, I realized I was a little familiar with parts of the land that they hunt and , at times, spotted some really nice goats there and had even taken photos of a herd there a few years ago.....Since my previous posts did not involve this outfitter for goats I thought that I'd add it. The terrain is similar to where I had goat hunted before, which is open land with hills , ruts, and rocks so I always use a walking stick, and wear good hiking boots(and wear sunscreen).. It was cool in the morning, but got hot pretty fast and we had very little wind. We took a stand on a hill and after a short while we spotted goats in large herds in the distance. Some heading in our general direction. We didn't actually count the # of goats, but there were easily over 100 of them . There were some really nice billies. Some had horns that swept backwards which they refer to as "Hawaiian Ibex", and some had wide horns ,( those goats with WIDE horns are sometimes referred to as "Helicopter billies".) They are the same species, but just have different horn shapes. I wanted a goat with a wider spread so when an opportunity came for an "Ibex" I passed it up. Most were passing us at distance that I was not comfortable with to shoot so we discussed stalking and planned out a route to take. However , before we moved a herd came to within 200 yards and I picked out a billy, at 168 yds. and took him with a .257 Roberts. We butchered the meat, which gets donated , and I'm thinking of a horn mount rather than another Euro mount. Hawaii Island(The Big Island ) has wild cattle and I'm thinking of hunting a Vancouver Bull in the fall, if not I would redo a goat hunt. I attached a photo of the goat, but for some reason it posted upside down, but it gives an idea of his looks.
  19. BigGuyNY.. I hadn't planned on going back now, but I'll be on the Big Island soon ..I set up a hunt so if you want me to ask the Outfitter anything, let me know by pm...I'll be back there again in the spring so, if you want , you can let me know as your trip gets closer.
  20. I just back 2 weeks ago(September) and had another successful boar hunt with Nahele Outfitters. A hurricane was due to hit the Big Island on the day of the hunt, but it was downgraded to a tropical storm and then it missed us, but it whacked Maui and I think Oahu too... So I had good weather for my hunt. I'm considering "revisiting" goat hunting in the spring. I'm not sure what hunting info that you are looking for, but am happy to help if I can.. I think it'd be best to pm me for the info, because I'm not on this site too much and if you pm me I'll get a message in my email and respond to you..
  21. Matt Dillon.. It's on cable every day in the afternoon.
  22. I just returned to NY from Hawaii. I experienced my first earthquakes(2) while I was there...The volcano was really active too.. I saw quite a few turkeys(not in season) and boars and shot a boar. It rained really hard during the boar hunt and at times visibility was tough. I'll be going back soon, but I think my hunts will only be for boars so unless I learn anything new about hunting there I'll end this post
  23. congrats.. enjoy every minute..Best of luck and happiness I am fully retired for 20 years this year and I love it !!
  24. Do you think that Insurance companies will ever not cover firearms, or related issues, or charge more for homeowner's insurance to gun owners l. Some companies don't cover bites from some breeds of dogs ?
