  1. I lived out in Colorado for several years before moving to the Adirondacks and had the opportunity to hunt Elk and Mule deer. You should do it. The non-resident OTC archery is expensive, but the hunt is worth it. My advise would be to start cardio training today. The Rockies are brutal. The more physically fit you are, the more you will enjoy your hunt. Also, there are so many places to camp and hunt the hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forest. It's such a great experience.
  2. Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters. I've had several hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt. I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting. I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required. Thanks for listening, off my SB...
  3. These are my goals for this year: 1. Spend some quality time out in the field with my two teenage boys. 2. Fill a tag or two while we're out there. 3. Hunt someplace new. Maybe in 6 or 7.
  4. Congrats. Sounds like you and your wife have developed good self-discipline. You are among the few!

    Name that Rub

    Hi All, Looking for some assistance from you more seasoned hunters on this board. I came across this "rub" a few weeks ago in 5C. I was in a swamp/lowland area so I initially thought a bear was the culprit, the gouges in the tree were deep and look like three claws had raked across the tree trunk. On closer inspection, there were multiple rubs on a line of trees. Does that rule out a bear? It's difficult to tell from the pictures, but the rubs go up to 6 feet high, whi ch must be from the tallest deer I'd ever seen or maybe a moose. Thoughts?
