  2. Police, paid sharpshooters, archers: How Upstate NY communities kill excess deer http://www.newyorkupstate.com/outdoors/2017/03/paid_sharpshooters_police_archers_shoot_excess_deer_in_upstate_ny_communities.html The article provides info on each approach and uses cull numbers and costs for the towns that choose one of the approaches. Because I'm a bow hunter, I'll include the following:
  3. Always interesting to see behavior at the zip-tied licking branch, especially when a younger buck shows dominance over an older buck that is licking the branch. In this case, I would guess it is a 1.5 year old and a 2.5 year old...for my neck of the woods. I would have posted the photo/vid of the interaction on this site, but I have maxed out my megabyte upload limit here. But you can see it off site at this link: If it is slow or doesn't work... See the vid on my facebook page. Link below:
  4. Can't make it up... My co-worker just came into my office to share a picture her friend texted over. That's the pic attached below. Her friend woke up this morning, looked out the window, and while the coffee steamed the glass, that's what he saw. An 8-pt buck (2.5 is my guess? Giving aging a go...) dead on her doorstep, like he was trying to get in the house with his last bit of breath and life. Her friend looked the deer over, and couldn't find a puncture wound, so he thinks that it's a car hit. DEC and the venison donation program get this one, folks.

  6. Public Comments Accepted Through February 8 The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is now accepting public comment on proposed regulation changes that would allow the use of big bore air rifles as a legal implement for taking big game at certain times and places in New York, beginning in the fall 2016 hunting seasons, Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today. DEC will accept written public comment on the proposed rule changes through February 8, 2016. DEC is proposing to amend the regulations found within Title 6 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (6 NYCRR section 180.3) to allow the use of certain air-powered firearms for hunting big game. Air-powered rifles that meet certain specifications, termed "big bore air rifles," have adequate downrange energy to effectively harvest New York big game species. In 2010, DEC amended these regulations to allow the use of air-powered firearms for hunting small game. "The popularity of air-powered firearms is growing, largely because of technological advancements," said Acting Commissioner Seggos. "These modern firearms produce the force necessary to efficiently harvest big game animals. In addition, because big bore air rifles are not as loud as conventional rifles or shotguns, allowing their use may make hunting more acceptable in locations with higher human densities, including areas where deer are overabundant." Big bore air rifles are available commercially, and they fire bullets of sufficient size at sufficient velocities to safely and efficiently harvest big game. These big bore air rifles would only be allowed for taking big game where other types of rifles are allowed to be used for taking big game. Use of rifles for big game hunting is allowed in most New York counties. Please visit the Rifle, Shotgun, and Bow Areas webpage on DEC's website for more information. Details of the proposed rule can be viewed in the December 23 publication of the New York State Register and on DEC's website under Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources Proposed, Emergency and recently adopted regulations - http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/34113.html#p1s1803 Citizens who wish to make formal public comments through February 8 may do so by sending an email to: [email protected] (include "air rifle regulations" in the subject line) or by writing to: Bryan L. Swift, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Bureau of Wildlife, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4754.
  7. Robinwood Park is a family-oriented hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, ATVing, and and canoeing club located in the Town of Long Lake near the former village of Sabattis, NY. The Club owns 4100 acres and also leases about 3500 acres of land from Lyme Adirondack Timberlands and was first established over 40 years ago as a hunting and fishing club on forests previously owned by Abbot Augustus Low, Herbert Henry Lehman (governor of New York State from 1933 to 1942), and International Paper Company. Bog Lake, Clear Pond, and Rainer Pond are NY State owned water bodies contained entirely or mostly within club borders. Miles of headwater streams in highlands and spruce bogs of the club feed the Bog, Oswegatchie, Beaver, and Raquette Rivers. Lows Lake adjoins the western club boundary and Lake Lila is a few miles south along the Adirondack Scenic Railway. The main inflow to Lows Lake is the Bog River which flows out of the mile-long Bog Lake and Clear Pond. Largemouth bass are abundant in all lakes, whereas native brook trout are abundant in Bog Lake and rainbow trout are stocked into Clear Pond. Deer, bears, rabbits, eagles, loons, grouse, and now-moose are commonly slighted on the lease. The few images above show Robinwood Park (and surroundings) at a glance; hold your cursor over images to view their captions. Many adiditonal images are provided on other pages. The club is composed of 45 private cabins and two cabins that are shared by members who are unassociated with a private cabin. Both cabins have propane cook stoves and lamps and a wood stove. A smaller cabin has two bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people, whereas the larger cabin has 4-5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 10 people. A main lodge, next to the small club cabin has running water, a generator, and is used mainly for cooking, meetings, meals, and entertainment. We are located about 20 miles NW of Long Lake. The main gate is located west of Little Tupper Lake near the large dirt parking area that was once the Sabattis Station (nearby Hotel) at the long forgotten village of Sabattis, NY. The club cabins and main lodge are located 0.9 mile SW of the main gate and Bog and ClearLakes are another 4.0 miles further into the property. A recently dismantled 6-bedroom log cabin was once located on the rocky point overlooking Bog Lake. The road continues 3 miles past the lakes and then begins a 6 mile loop with numerous logging roads and trails branching off; some are overgrown and some are active. A few lead to active beaver ponds and meadows or recently cleared log landings. Robinwood Park truely represents the “Real Adirondacks”. Club members treat others as family and go out of there way to help when/where needed. There are always some event or activity for everyone to enjoy. Our annual summer picnic and winter banquet (and 1 or 2 work weekends) permit members to socialize as much or as little as they wish. Timber harvests were completed 3-to-4 years ago and allow members opportunity to see parts of the landscape not seen in decades. Several 20-acre clear cuts have been done to help promote grouse and woodcock populations. The logging in selected areas will also improve forage for, and the survival of, local deer herds. Whether you want to hike the backwoods; stroll down a dirt road or old skidway; canoe miles of flows and lakes; hunt deer, bear, or grouse; fish for trout or bass, atv or snowmobile; socialize with other members; enjoy a camp fire; or simply read a book by a cozy woodstove, the lands (and members) of Robinwood exemplify what the Real Adirondacks are all about. For membership information or more about the club check out our website www.robinwoodpark.org

  9. 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

  11. Here's the link with the content below: http://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/NYSDEC/bulletins/1374987 Agency Will Encourage Hunters to Voluntarily Pass Up Young Bucks A multi-year study to guide buck management in New York State found deer hunters prefer to harvest older bucks and that further expanding mandatory antler restrictions is not warranted at this time, Department of Environmental Conservation Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos announced today. Instead, the state will encourage hunters to voluntarily pass up shots at younger bucks as a management method to best serve the interests of deer hunters across the state. "Through this study, DEC engaged with the hunting community to determine the best deer herd management practices to benefit both the deer population and our state's wildlife enthusiasts," Acting Commissioner Seggos said. "DEC staff concluded that promoting voluntary restraint was appropriate given the high level of hunter support for increased availability of older bucks. Using a sound scientific approach to wildlife management is an essential strategy to expand hunting opportunities and growing the hunting economy in New York." DEC and the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at Cornell University conducted the study in response to long-standing interests expressed by many hunters for DEC to adopt regulations to reduce the take of yearling bucks (male deer younger than 1.5 years old) to increase the number of older bucks in the population. Moving forward, DEC intends to work with several leading sportsmen groups across the state to educate hunters on their important role in deer management, the impacts of their harvest choices, and the likely changes in the deer population as more and more hunters voluntarily refrain from taking young bucks. The study included a statewide survey of 7,000 deer hunters conducted in fall 2013 by the Human Dimensions Research Unit at Cornell University, a nationally recognized leader in surveys to assess public opinions and attitudes on wildlife-related issues. DEC considered six alternatives to increase the proportion of older bucks in the population, including mandatory antler restrictions during all or portions of the archery and firearms seasons, shorter firearms seasons, a one-buck per hunter per year rule, promoting voluntary restraint by hunters, and a no change option. DEC analyzed these alternatives for each of the state's seven distinct buck management zones. The decision process weighted hunter values 3:1 over potential impacts on population management and costs, but the survey found that hunter values did not strongly lean in any one particular direction. "The issue of antler restrictions has divided our deer hunting community for too many years and I am pleased to see that the DEC used a very structured, non-biased decision-making process to determine the outcome," said Larry Becker, Chairman of the New York Sportsmen's Advisory Council. "It is most important that everyone understands that DEC has listened to what the majority of the deer hunters in the State want and that this was the primary factor that drove the final decision. The hunters spoke and DEC listened." DEC plans to work with sportsmen and women and other stakeholder groups, including the New York State Conservation Council (NYSCC) and Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), in the coming year to develop a cooperative, educational effort to encourage hunters to pass up shots at young bucks. It is clear that hunters' choices can and do affect the age and size of bucks in our deer herd, and when hunters choose to pass young bucks, it can make a difference for other hunters as well. "The Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) is pleased New York has engaged its deer hunters at such a high level to learn their values and desires," said Kip Adams, QDMA Director of Education & Outreach. "We feel this is a positive step for the DEC and for hunters, and we are extremely supportive of the Department's proposed educational campaign on the benefits of protecting yearling bucks." "The New York State Conservation Council would like to applaud the hard work of both the DEC Deer Team and Cornell University, as well as the hunting community that participated in this important work," said Rich Davenport, NYSCC Big Game Committee Co-Chairman. "We look forward to assisting the DEC and other sportsmen groups with educating the hunters of today and tomorrow on the benefits of voluntary harvest restraint and the importance of the management role hunters of New York play. It's a critical component to ensure we have healthy deer herds well into the future." Detailed technical reports on the analysis of alternatives and results of the hunter survey are both available on the DEC website, along with more succinct summaries of the work that was done. DEC plans to hold public information meetings later this spring and summer to discuss these results and get hunter feedback on ways to encourage others to pass up shots at young, small-antlered bucks. The meetings will also provide an opportunity for hunters and others to provide input on other aspects of DEC's deer management plan, which will be updated in the coming year. The current (2012-2016) statewide deer plan is also available on the DEC website.

  14. Curious to see what sort of animals have been spotted in Nassau. Post a picture or verbalize your sighting. The attached picture was taken in Oyster Bay. I've heard of deer heading as far west as Fresh Meadows!
  15. Closeup of a nice buck (he is off limits)100_2546_2565.MOV.
  16. Here are a couple of pics of a small buck (or doe?) we caught in mid-September. Do bucks go this late without removing velvet? Could this be a doe? I believe we need a closer look. Oh, yeah, don't look at the dates...they were never set.
  17. Pretty cool if you haven't came across this to do some calculating with ur smart phone and deer. http://huntervids.com/?videos=how-to-age-whitetail-deer
