Live From the Stand / Woods 2013!

Recommended Posts

Got into my stand a few minutes ago. Bumped 2 deer in the corn on the way in. Gonna do the morning sit here then check trail cams and head to the range to check the scope on my muzzle loader. Brought my old 20 gay out of moth balls for this morning.

Not as windy as predicted. Hoping for some action with the front moving in. Nice morning.

Buck tag filled. On ground with long shooting lane in front of me. Perfect for my .270. Only two days left to fill doe tag!

Woods silent at 7am. After weeks of fresh tracks, nothing this weekend. Only a couple doe on cam. 170 acres and 3 buck spotted. Neighbor took the 6 pointer. Now i wonder if I've somehow pressured them deeper into the forest.

Watching my parents neighbors pint sized pup play in one of our fields I'm watching. He is having a blast, though not what I woke up at 4am to come watch , sometimes you just have to laugh at the situation at hand

No matter how warm I dress, I eventually get cold and want to make the 20 minute walk back to the cabin for hot coffee lol. Still hunting or walking.. Why does the grass always seem greener by the stand I'm not? ;-)

Saw a button at 730. Only shot all day was a buddy who shot a yote. I surely didn't dress warm enough today.

It's a real beauty in 3N right now. My first sit with the shotty this year- kicked a few on the way in- hoping they circle back to be greeted by some led!!!

Crunch ...crunch ..crunch...bumped a couple on the way in ..I had taken last of lureand sprayed the bottom of my boots then every so often to stand.....grunted when I bumped the deer...the wooded ladder stand popped and creaked the entire climb...heavy rain then freezing temps last night......well after the 6th fawn that walked under the stand...no adults...I gave up...felt like my toes may snap off so took a slow walk on edge of property...to avoid bumping deer to others...Coffee and a warm bowl of stir fry....warm me back up....

Back in the treestand after a short stalk around the Ridgetop. Wind has really started to die down here for now.

Gonna do another hour in the tree then head in to do lunch with my family before hunting out back behind the house in the snowfall this pm.

Dreaming of a venison sausage and sunny side up hoagie...I'll settle for tenderloins if one gets in range.

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      I'm new to the area and looking for some places to hunt  the next few weekends through bow/muzzleloader season. I'm living in New Paltz, and the place that seems the most promising to me so far is Vernooy Kill State forrest, and north into Sundown. Has anyone had any luck in these areas? Is there anywhere better in the area I should check out? Any info is welcome

      Hi Everyone,
      My name is Raul and I am a new hunter! I've been hunting public land for now, but have been suffering. I've done 2 10 hour sits at Kings Park and 3 10 hour sits at Rocky Point and haven't seen one deer. I use a treestand and use scent blocker. I also get there super early in the morning. I need help! I plan to go again this friday. I scouted Rocky point after the first day and always see sign and I try to hunt the areas, but no success. I hunt around 42 and 36 I think. If someone wants the exact spot I can send them it on a map. I am really just looking for help in any areas and everything. I have put so much effort yet all i want is to just see one that will keep moral up. Any help is really appreciated!

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
