  4. Hey Everyone! This is Louis Backlas/ Cross Over the River Outdoors. I just posted a new video to my YouTube channel that I though ya'll might get a kick out of! Have you ever used a decoy to hunt whitetails? If you haven't before you might want to start!

Follow along on my adventures on my pages! You can find Cross Over the River Outdoors on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook! God Bless!
  5. Anyone ever hunt taconic Hereford? Was in there this weekend and it has a good amount of deer sign but nit sure if there will be to much activity during bow and then rifle season.
  6. Can anyone recommend a good tick repellent that doesn't stink too badly? I typically spray my gear and clothes and check myself over very thoroughly when I get home. I also have my wife look me over to get a second set of eyes and to have someone check spots I can't see. This weekend I went out for about 5 hours on Saturday afternoon. It was pretty warm so I sprayed and checked. Thought I was good when I was done but I woke up the next morning to a tick chomping down on my junk (yeah, that junk). I take tick nosode and tick pathogen regularly so I wasn't too freaked about infection. I got it out pretty quickly, took an antibiotic for 2 days. I feel OK and no bullseye so I think I'm OK but I definitely DO NOT want that to happen again. I'm a ground hunter so I'm sure ticks will always be a problem to deal with but I want to limit exposure as much as possible. Any recommendations?
  7. 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.
  8. Just wanted to post a video of one of my successful bow hunts this year. Something about documenting your hunt and self filming adds even more of a rewarding feeling to a bow harvest when it all comes together. *Disclaimer* I don't think I'm a "pro" nor am I trying to be just love filming and tinkering around with the editing. The audio on the video from my second doe harvest is much better than this one, I figured out a few tricks with the editing software recently and I'll have that one done by the weekend. You can skip through the talking parts if you want the shot happens around the 3:20 mark.
  9. I have a cabin in Davenport NY and I am looking for some land to lease for hunting. I would prefer it to be within a half hour of Davenport. It would be me my two brothers and one other friend. We all have been hunting since we were kids and are very responsible and respectful. If you would like to contact me to talk about some property you might have or somebody you might know. My cell is 609-868-7290 or you can respond to this by e-mail.
  10. We often talk about when the best time is to go hunting (for deer), I have one word, NOW! These next two weeks plus are considered some of the best times to be out in the woods, simply put the doe are coming into heat and chasing has already begun. If you have the chance to hunt these next two weeks get out, it is some of the best times to catch that elusive buck in daylight. This is also a great time to try doe in heat lure and some calling and even rattling. I don't use many loud and aggressive calls but if you do this is a great time to try it. This is the time of year you can even catch them roaming midday simply checking doe beds for scent. If you know where the does bed you can bet the bucks will be traveling down wind scent checking those areas. The young bucks are really roaming now and the big boys will be next, PYS (Pack Your Stuff) its time!!! I hope to see that harvest thread start to light up with new game, good luck and be safe all! Hope you get the big one! Remember when using buck grunts to sound beatable, bucks are more likely to come into a younger buck with a doe VS an aggressive big buck. And bucks like doe calls more than another buck, they want sex not a fight, usually. JMO again good luck and go get em! It's TIME!
  11. This is a new thread for State Park hunters. This big woods deer hunting experience is ideal for SOME hunters. I especially enjoy the park....with snow. Muzzleloader season is easy to look forward to at the park.
  12. 2015 Obsession Knightmare GT 27in draw, 28 ATA, 60-70 lb limbs. Sweet shooting bow with only about 100 arrows through it. Asking 650 bare, have a montana black gold rush 5 pin and a truglo slider pendulum I could part with if wanted.
  13. 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.
  14. I have just retired and looking for some property to deer hunt. I am not familiar with NY hunting. How is the deer population in the Adirondack area? I am a responsible hunter,primarily bow. any response would be appreciated. Thanks, Brian
  15. Well after about a month straight of hunting with no shot opportunities today I was finally graced with the opportunity to take a shot at not one but two does within five minutes of each other. My friends and father call me the doe master for a reason, I may get buck fever but does never get past me... until today. I made a terrible shot at 22 yards on the first doe very high no vitals hit. The way I was shaking you would think I had a 12 point standing in front of me. The second a clean miss hair trimming at 18 yards. I think the first high hit got me inside my own head and I subconsciously tried to compensate unnecessarily. I am thankful for the clean miss on the second as there is nothing more that I hate than putting a bad non lethal hit on an animal. Any one else experience these almost newbie to hunting jitters when finally presented with a shot during a tough season? As many times as I run that shot over in my head and think of all the times I've hit similar and tougher shots I can't believe I could blow it twice in five minutes.
  16. Hey guys, Just wondering how many of you qauter and pack your deer on ice. Usually I hang for a few days or qauter and place in a fridge but at my hunting camp that's not an option. I've heard of people packing deer on ice for a few days up to a few weeks and was wondering how many of you tried it. Also if you bag the qauters and pack ice around or just put the meat in on bags of ice? I can't imagine direct ice contact on meat would be a good thing.
  17. 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.

  19. Hi there, I have heard that there are a lot of deer around Cayuga Heights(Ithaca). I am a bow and crossbow hunter and would like to know, where I could get information,as if there are public land available or private land that the owner could give permission to hunt on their land? Is there some place that we could stay to hunt? I am from suburban Montreal, Qc. Canada. 5-6 hours drive in between Regards Frank
  20. Hello to All, I’m new to these boards. I’m an old fart 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 area. I’m looking to hike some new areas in Region 3. Been down to Deposit in Delaware County fly fishing the Delaware and it looks like the area holds some deer. 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 Kerryville State Forrest? Any advice on this area or any other public lands would be appreciated
  21. Checked my camera at a spot I let sit for a few weeks and caught a few pictures of this guy. Four days apart mid day, and all the doe groups are finally broken up here with the exception of a young doe and her fawn. Fingers crossed he comes out pulling an all day sit today and Sunday.
  22. Well guys wish I was posting this on happier terms. Many of you may remember my last post when I shot low on a nice ten point. Well I have a friend who has been begging me to take him out as he lost his spots from last year. I took him out and he shot two deer on one of my spots. Today he asked again because he needed meat for a family member who can't hunt this year due to injury. I agreed trying to be a good friend and took him out and sat in the same tree together at the spot where I had the encounter with the ten. I said shoot whatever you want my only condition was if the ten point comes out and you have a clear shot on your side of the tree you can shoot it, if it is on my side of the tree I want to take the shot. Fair enough I thought, long story short, 10 point steps out is under thick cover on a trail that would put him at 10 yards broadside right in front of me, I get ready, in disbelief I get another crack at him. Knowing I have a history with this buck from the encounter and many trail cam pictures from scouting efforts I figured my friend would be happy this deer was making his way towards me. Then the last thing I expected happened, my friend takes a severely quartered to shot through thick branch cover and all I here is a loud pop almost like someone shooting a milk jug. Pissed he would take a stupid shot like that especially when the deer was coming right into my lane and was no where in his shooting vicinity he claimed to make a good hit. No blood, no arrow, no hair and just that loud almost hollow pop? Could this be a shot into a tree or did he wound the buck on a stupid decision? Never heard a sound like that before, needless to say I don't think I'm taking him out to hunt with me after that.
  23. 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.
