    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.

    Arrow spine question

    So I'm a hunter on the cheap. I'm a big proponent of used and budget equipment when it comes to hunting, after all it's about the cleanest kill, not the most expensive equipment. With that said, my bow is an old hoyt raider, it has wheels, not cams. I shoot 70lbs @31" draw and shoot carbon arrows to maximize my speed (its more than fast enough to kill deer). So here's the issue... I have the bow tuned surpringly well with the generic Allen (i think they're actually called kryptos?) arrows that you buy at walmart individually for about $3-4. The 31" arrows say theyre rated for up to 70lbs and have a 9.6GPI. Weeelllll i decided that it was time for the slightest of upgrades and bought a box of the victory decimators (aka v-force) from Dick's while they were on their anual 50% off sale. I bought the 350 spine arrows and didnt have them cut as they were already 31". I figured a lighter arrow, rated for my draw weight, with actual blazer veins would be an improvment but when i shoot them they fly fast and sloppy and WAY high-left. Heres the thing, these arrows are pretty similar to my allens, the biggest differences are that theyre 8.7GPI and the 31" length is measured in shaft alone, not from the nocking point so theyre about half an inch longer. The thing is, these arrows FEEL like they are underspined for my bow but I cant really figure out how, its an old bow and doesn't have nearly as much speed or power at the release as a modern compound and it says on the box that they are rated up to 70lbs with modern bows. I can only cut them about an inch before my broadhead ends up burried in my whiskerbiscuit, but i don't know if that would be enough to get rid of that sloppy shot. anyone have any similar issues or have any problems with those arrows? For now my plan was to buy a few more of those delightfuly cheap allen arrows but they apparently went on sale near me and i cant find any. Meanwhile Im down to 1 left, and 6 arrows that i cant hit a barn with.

    1C Access

    Are there areas in 1C that do not require parking permits reservations etc.? Any public land you can just pull up to a trail head and get after it?
  8. 2011 PSE Stinger HP 50-60lb Limbs Single Cam, 75% Letoff 25" - 30" Draw 30.75" ATA / 4.2lbs I purchased this bow used over the summer and have since upgraded. The bow comes with stabilizer, 3 pin sight and quiver. Needs a rest and string. Cable is brand new and does not need replacement. I had the bow professionally tuned when I purchased it and it was pulling 27 1/8" and 61lbs. More pictures upon request. $100 and shipped free USPS to anywhere in NY or bordering states.

    Switch from 100 gr. to 125 gr.

    This is my second year bowhunting and have yet to take a buck in gun (4 years) or bow. Today I was out deer hunting and about 10:30 3 doe stroll through so I took a shot at one and missed, luckily found my arrow. 25 yrds 15 minutes later a 4 point comes through from the direction that the 3 doe's went to, took a shot again and missed. Keep in mind I am in my treestand and its the first time I have shot an arrow from my treestand. This is the third time I have missed this year. The first time was from the ground at about 30 yards. Last year I did well during practice, and the season was amazing, I was hooked, so much different and better than gun. This year I had to get new fletchings which were a different style. The bowyer told me that they would not have much effect if any on a 30 yard shot. I also had to use my other broadheads which are 125 gr., however I did not realize this until after I sighted/tuned the bow. It was sighted with 100 gr. field tips. So I am here looking for some knowledge from my fellow bowhunters, and my question is how much will the added 25 gr. effect a 30 yard shot? Was it the broadheads that through the shot off? Was it the new fletchings, was it both? Or, was it my close encounter jitters? And one more question, does the angle that im shooting (from treestand) have any effect on the flight of the arrow? Thanks to all who answer.

    Portable Hoists

    Are you an outdoorsman? Do you hunt frequently? Do you experience the struggles of lifting your deer, elk, bear, or other kill onto your truck, ATV, or Gator?

Our simple to use design allows flexibility to your hunt that other hoists can’t compare to. Simply attach our hoist to a tree, tie up the feet, crank the line, and you’re on your way! Check out what other customers had to say at http://huntersportablehoist.webs.com/testimonials where you can also find easy to view tutorials.

    Mentor needed

    Hey all, I've recently got interested in hunting last season, mind you, I've never been hunting and I did not grow up in a family that hunts. I've been reading through articles, books and trying to apply everything I've read in the field and scouting. I'm probably going about this the hardest way possible but, since I already have a recurved bow, that is what I'm starting with. It is a 58" recurve with a 50lb draw weight and it was made by my father. He took up archery and building bow and arrows in his retirement. I haven't found anyone in my profession that hunts, thus why I'm turning to the online forums for assistance. In short, I'm looking for someone to show me the ropes. In exchange I can offer my culinary experience as trade. I am a chef and part time butcher with experience sausage making and charcuterie. Thanks, Sean

    Bow Oil

    Does anyone have experience with odorless bow oil? I'd like to add some lubricant to the cam pins, which have a faint squeak when drawing the string. I've also read that vegetable oil is a suitable alternative, but I'm curious to learn of other bowhunters' experiences using one, the other, or both. Thanks in advance...

    New to the State

    I'm a new hunter (this past season) and new to the state (this past year). Stationed at and living on West Point, in Orange County. Hunted my butt off this past season with a bow and some good friends that showed me the ropes and brought me out to some drives. Got 2 does back to back on the second to the last day of bow season here, and am doing my reading, research, scouting and practicing so I will be ready to go next year. Found the site today trying to determine if "Deer Cane" and other attractants are illegal (and now know they are) in the state, and am glad I found the forum. Greetings from USMA!
  19. Hey, I know it's late into the season for this but I'm just feeling it out for the future. I'm new to hunting, and I live in Brooklyn. I have a couple of friends in 3s that hunt but its not that easy to coordinate with them. Anybody closer to Brooklyn that would possibly be looking to partake when possible. I have no problem traveling a bit if timing is right. I also own a trailer in nj that is about 15 minutes from Orange County and from what I heard there is state land there but I have no information about it. Oh btw I have bow and I'm In the process of going through the nyc process in order to be able to purchase a firearm. Hoping to lease some land next season if a good group forms. good luck out there tomorrow and every other day. Thanks

    Removing bow grip??

    I just recently read an article on my Field and stream reader app on how removing your bow grip can improve your accuracy. They are saying the less you have to hold, the less of a chance you have to torque or alter the bow when releasing. I understand the logic behind the theory, and it seems to make some sense. Has anyone ever tried this? Does Removing a Bow's Grip Improve Accuracy?

    Deer Refelexes

    I've always wander how fast deer reflexes realy are and how to overcome them. Since last year is when i started wondering. The old man took a shot at a spiker at roughly 20 to 30 yards out. With in a second or two the deer duck the shot and ran off. My question to all the bow hunters out there is how to over come the reflexes? When do the deer begin to "jump the string"(i think thats what its called when the deer ducks). Do they do it at 5, 10, 15 and so on. Is it increased when the deers alert and the speed of the bow a factor(I shoot a diamond outlaw if that helps)?
