  5. Hey everyone I'm knew to the sport and looking to learn as much as I can. I was suppost to go up to sterling with a friend of a friend but the guy had been dodging me. So I've decided that I will head to sterling or Stewart forest by my self this Monday 10/09/17 and wing it. Maybe walk around with my bow and see if get lucky. Worst case scenario I get good excerside out of it. If anyone could help out either teaming up or letting me know where to go I would greatly appreciate it. Also if anybody knows of a butcher and the prices so I can take my deer when I harvest one. I live in NYC even tho I would love to see my neighbors faces as I carry a deer from my car to the 5th fl of my building I don't think it will work out. thanks in advance for any help and for taking the time to read my post

  9. Hey guys, I'm looking for a decent priced hunting land lease for 3 hunters. One of the hunter's teaches hunters safety with the DEC. He is our mentor, so he teaches us about being ethical, polite, and safe during out hunts. We are looking for land 2-3 hours away from NYC. I'm also in the market of buying a small parcel of similar distance. Maybe around 5-20 acers, nothing to big. You can reply here or at school4237@gmail.com for serious offers. Any questions please do the same, many thanks in advance!

  12. New Hunter Intro

    Hello All, Just thought I would drop a message saying 'thank you' for the add and hoping that you all have great luck and stay safe this (and all) seasons. I enjoy the outdoors and decided to get licensed last year. I'm new to the game but always looking to learn and try things. If anyone ever feels like they want to teach a thing or two, I'm open to invites to outings. I've got 4 kids to feed and I'm hoping to put some food on the table and enjoy some relaxation out of the office. I welcome all tips and tricks! First question is opinion - your preferred caliber for hunting deer and black bear (and why)... one rifle & caliber to cover both animals... and... go! Thanks!

  16. Hi, I'm semi-disabled (basically, can't hunt myself at this time) and I'm looking for how to obtain some deer meat/bones/organs for nutrition purposes. (Hopefully I'll be able to hunt myself someday after I resolve some of my health issues.) I've been searching around and all I can find is info on venison donations for the "hungry". I wouldn't want to take food away from those who can't afford it - I have financial resources, just don't know how to get the deer. I see there is a refrigerated truck in Southold where you can pick up a whole deer but I'm not sure I'd be able to transport it to a processor as I just have a regular car. What I can do is pick up processed meat from a processor, if someone is willing to donate it. I'm also interested in the organs. From what I understand hunters remove this right away after killing a deer. Not sure what you do with it, but I would like to get some. I'm in Nassau but would drive anywhere in Suffolk. Any leads? Thanks in advance, and I'm a total newbie at everything hunting so sorry for any naivete!

  20. Dominant Buck in my area. Help

    Hello everyone! This past weekend, I was in the woods doing a little walking around with another hunting buddy, and stumbled upon a Massive Rub. (take a look at the pic). During the early and mid bow season, i snapped about 300 pictures of various 4 pters, 6 ptrs, and 2 really impressive 8 ptrs. (see second pic). So far this gun season, we have taken 3 small bucks (2 spikes, and 1 4 ptr) off the property. (new hunters wanted their first deer, i know i know let em grow....) The other big deer are NO WHERE to be seen. MY guess is that this rub that i found is from the big boy, and he is pushing everything else off the property. The rub is located in a Hard-to-get-to spot deep in the woods overlooking a tight funnel, with a stream about 200 yards away. My question is: How do I go about finding this guy? what are some of your tactics in getting him to show up? I've been in the woods every weekend for the past 8 weeks, and havent confirmed seeing him except on the camera in August. The third pic is right in front of where the rub is. Just passed the first row of trees, is a stream that runs through the border of my property. HELP PLEASE!
  21. 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.
  22. DEC Region 4 Harvest Forecast

    Here is DEC's harvest forecast for whitetail during the 2016 hunting season: http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/wildlife_pdf/deerforecastr4.pdf Interesting info... I doubt my WMU, 4L will ever have doe tags, and it's interesting to read that DEC is concerned by possible "misuse" of the 4J doe tags.

  24. Strange Rack

    Just wondering if anyone has seen this before. I'm guessing something is broken at the base of the antler or skull for this to happen? Is this a permanent thing or can it grow normal after shedding his antlers this year?
  25. 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...
