Lets see those pics! Bonus to anyone that LIVE streams from the stand I'll give it a shot.

    Seen this deer?

    Hey All, New to the forum, already missing the deer season and have curiosity to quell. This was a great non-typical I was chasing all season in a bow-only area of Ithaca. Anyone know or hear of a non-typical of this caliber being killed? I'll be out scouting for him aggressively soon enough. Thanks! Nick

    Almost Central NY

    Hello folks. I'm a novice hunter from almost Central NY. I live amongst the cow fields about 20 minutes south of the ADK park. I'm here hoping that I can learn from those who know more than I do. That's probably most of you. LOL. This is my second season and so far I still have all of my tags. I have a rifle but I'm not comfortable shooting it in the area I hunt due to people being near. I'm hoping to fill at least one of my tags before Dec 19.

    Hunting in 6J

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and glad to be apart of it. I'm a first year hunter and I love every part of it. I hunt on private land in 6J near Boonville. I've seen a few doe and 1 buck. Has anyone else in this area or anywhere else been experiencing this? There is so much sign of deer, but nothing when it comes time to hunt. I see 100 deer a night on the side of the road, but none when hunting. Also, if anyone has any tips for a newbie, that'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Kill/Staging Plots

    I was wondering how many of you plant and effectively use "kill Plots" on your hunting lands. I have 47 acres in the lower Catskills that I picked up last year. I have to do quite a bit of land management as much of the woods around my fields had been logged about 10 years back and is now an overgrown mess that's great for deer cover but impossible to navigate and see more than 10 yards through. On the bright side the top of the mountain is great and my entire lower field is corn which is farmer managed and my middle and top field is hay. I will be keeping a lot of the under brush for bedding and travel cover but want to cut trails through it to help redirect deer travel. My other thought was to make a few 50-100 yard wide by 100-300 yard long staging or kill plots in and near the cover to catch the deer before they make their way to the big fields at night. After dark the hay fields are absolutely covered in does. My question is how many have used this tactic and what are good seeds to plant, being that I have corn and hay would a late season browse like turnips and radishes be best or an all around option like clovers and oats?

    Sticking it out with the bow

    Anyone else with me and has been hunting with the bow during the regular season? Finally got one down a few days ago been a rough season thus far.
  8. Does anyone frequently use, or have frequent experience with screw-in steps to get up trees and set stands? I'm curious to know if you have a best method to determine how many steps you'll need, how far to space them, and how to position them on a tree so that they make for easy step-downs onto a tree stand. I had one hell of a time on Saturday setting up a stand, and it took way longer than I had wanted to be at the location. I used a small piece of PVC to help with turning the step, and pre-drilled for ease of turning...
  9. Wow, time flies, its that time of the year again! Bow season starts in just over a day for the Southern Zone Folks and has already started for the Northern Zone guys.

  10. Hello to All, New to this forum. I'm an old fart archery hunter. I live in VT but do a lot of hunting in the Lake George area Adirondacks. It's tough bow hunting and even gun hunting is a real challenge. This year I'd like to broaden my horizons...... I'm planning to drive out to Yates County this coming weekend just to hike some public land and am considering either High Tor WMA or Italy Hill State Forrest. Anybody have any experience hunting either of these areas? I'm sure they get a lot of pressure during the gun season but I'm wondering how much pressure they get during the archery season. Thanks!

    Slcik Trick ViperTricks

    I've recently been testing some fixed blades after shooting mechanical broad heads for the past three seasons. Ulmer Edges were my go to until they were discontinued. Last season I tried out a rage which I was very unimpressed with, mine prematurely opened on a nice buck resulting in a non lethal poor hit and my friend had an extremely poor blood trail due to lack of penetration. I did have a quick ethical kill with a shwacker but I want to get away from mechanical heads. Recently I have shot Slick trick Vipertricks, Slick trick Mags, Ramcats, and DRTs. The DRT hit 4 inches low at 20 out of a pretty well tuned bow. The mags are close but not so forgiving, any shooter error shows, but the Vipers are dead on out to 40 (all I tested so far). Anybody have any field experience with the vipers? I can't find as much online about them as other heads.

    Metro Bowhunters Resource Base

    Yesterday afternoon, I read an article that discussed a partnership between bow hunters and the twin cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. The cities were looking at ways to reduce the deer herd in their metro area. The reasons for the desired reductions are familiar: damage to vehicles, damage to horticulture on both residential and public grounds, and general nuisances associated with unchecked, large, and some might say bold, deer populations in urban and suburban areas. Enter the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base (MBRB), ta-da! The MBRB organizes and administers bow hunts in in the Twin City metro area in locations that are, well, sensitive to hunting, and in use by the general public. From the MBRB about page: The MBRB also administers its own skill-based proficiency test that plays a part in the type of hunt an applicant may engage in: standard and sharpshooter. I imagine that proficiency determines the area an individual hunter would be allowed to apply to hunt. From the article that I read, the MBRB also acts as a resource to place deer-disgruntled landowners in contact with available bow hunters. I'm unsure of how that selection is handled. Perhaps a lottery of their "sharpshooter" applicants. Has anyone attempted to organize bow hunters in their "metro" area in a fashion similar to the MBRB in MN? That is, have you or any bow hunting groups or organizations that you are part of, or know of approached a municipality to present and propose a structured, organized metro bow hunt within municipal/county/metro boundaries, specifically at parks, golf courses, etc.? If so, would you share the response you received from the municipality? Would you also share the proposal? I'm very interested in fleshing out this idea and perhaps making a pitch in the Albany / Troy / Schenectady areas. This is a low-cost (perhaps revenue generating), low-impact alternative to sharp-shooters, trapping, birth control, etc, and I think that an organized front with a structured and detailed plan delivered by experienced and conscientious bow hunters would be the best approach, oppositions notwithstanding. Thoughts? Experiences? Suggestions? Your thoughtful and constructive contributions are appreciated. Thanks very much... -- Link to the MBRB about page: http://mbrb.org/mbrb/mbrb-p04.htm Link to the MBRB page on how to engage the MBRB: http://mbrb.org/mbrb/mbrb-p10.htm
  14. Hello to All, I’m new to these boards. I’m just an old dog bow hunter from Vermont looking to hunt more of New York this year. I spend a lot of time in the Lake George Region Adirondacks although I’ve not tagged a buck there in a few years. I’m looking to hike some new areas in Region 3 (looking at Orange County but open to ideas!) and was wondering if anyone could offer advice for Bow Hunting on public land. Does public land get a lot of pressure during the bow season? I’m sure it does for gun. Anyone hunt Pochuck Mountain State Forrest? Can a bow hunter avoid being run over by fellow sportsmen trying their luck?

Anyone hunt Kerryville State Forrest? Any advice on this area or any other public lands would be appreciated

    Hello everyone

    Hello all, newbie bowhunter this year. One question, how do you deal with seeing so many deer during bow season but not be able to shoot them from 20 yards when still hunting because they see your every move. Even when trying to draw and lift bow slowly they seem to catch me every time, keep getting caught with my pants down.

    How you doing

    Hi everyone... Originally from Northern NY, relocated to Nassau County with a camp on Black Lake near Hammond, NY. I'm a deer hunter, ice fisherman and summertime griller with either venison or fish grilling with the best rubs and jerk to make meat come alive. I process my own deer, making steaks for jerking to sausages of all kind. Ever in the neighborhood, come on in and have a beer, check out my 10 point scoring 141 7/8 in 2003.

    Help on reading a shot

    Hey guys, Last night I got lucky and had an absolute monster 10 point walk out at 5. The only shot I could take was a quick right shot in a lane before he hit thick cover. Upon releasing the arrow I thought I saw it go low and back kind of in the gut/liver area (wasn't happy about that). Anyway I gave him time went down and found my arrow completely greased from top to fletchings in heavy fat and a light pink chunk of what looked to be organ on the ground with blood. Other than that no blood and he ran into the thickest stuff imaginable. My buddy who had a similar expierence said that with a buck that big the fat could've plugged the hole like his did last year. I estimate the live weight to be right around 200. We did see the six pointer he was with bust out of the cover they ran into about an hour and a half later by himself. Bringing in a dog this afternoon after work but looking for opinions and thoughts. I haven't been able to think of anything since it's killing me to think I may have wounded the animal.
  19. Looking for 2 hunters to come in on a lease in Pocono Pa. Its a year round lease which consists of 210 acres. The property is located right over the water gap about an hour from NYC. Asking $1,250 per hunter.
  20. Hey guys I had a quick question that I cant find a clear answer out on the DEC website. My little sister is finally getting her hunting license this year. She will be doing a combo course for Hunting and Bow in March. Now my question, is she allowed to sit in a blind with me for spring turkey? She would obviously not be hunting, nor even holding a bow, just to sit and accompany me while getting used to sitting in a blind for hours. I know she obviously doesn't have 2014/2015 tags so I just want to make sure its okay for her to sit with me. I thought it would be a good way to break her into sitting quietly in the spring rather than in the fall when she will be purchasing a 2015/2016 license. If you could help me out I would really appreciate it.

    Pocono Manhunt

    Check out this photo and the size of that silencer. The police need to catch this guy before the rut kicks in. Totally ruined the first couple of Weeks of the season.
  22. Hey guys I wanted to upgrade a few components on my bow including my sight. I was thinking about getting a one pin sight like the AXT Archer Extreme Driver 1-Pin Bow Sight so I could dial the distance down and not be blinded by the different pins. Although now the more I think about it it just takes that much longer to dial down a deer then to ready the bow aim and shoot after zapping em with a range finder. I have heard some great reviews on this specific brand I was just curious to see if anyone has used one before?
  23. Hey guys I was thinking of purchasing this drop away rest for my pse dna. The bows a rocket and I want a good drop away. Been using whisker biscuits but my biscuits kinda burnt! hahaaa anyhow if anyone has any experience shooting with this product let me know what you think! GOOD LUCK OUT THERE!!!!
