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!
New hunter to NY here. Found some public land to hunt, it’s a WMA. I wish I read the regs more thoroughly because I threw up a ladder stand yesterday and today when I was re-reading them, I saw you can’t put temporary stands on WMAs, only on state forests and other such state land. I honestly didn’t know I wasn’t allowed to, I even put my name and license # on the stand. I was going to go take it down tomorrow but it’s an hour drive so I wanted to ask, what do DEC officers do if they find a ladderstand like mine on a WMA? Is this an automatic fine or whatever? Will they just call me and tell me to come get it? Confiscate? How often do officers go through areas like WMAs and check for stands? Any info would be helpful. I’ll still probably go take it down tomorrow, although I have seen other stands up on the WMA, I just prefer to stay on the right side of the law myself. Thanks!
I have always wanted to go hunting and I plan to finally do it this year for my first time. I am planning to go to the Catskill Mountains for whitetail this season. If anyone has any tips for gear or location, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks and looking forward to contributing to the forum!
Looking to sell my Gen 1 Ruger PRS in .308
Unfortunately, I've only brought it to the range one time before so it's barely used.
Rifle is all stock besides the addition of the muzzle break.
I want to upgrade my bow, and don't have the chance to shoot this as much as I like.
Rifle w/ scope : $1300
Rifle w/out scope: $900
FFL transaction required.
You can contact me at [email protected] with any questions or more pics.
I'm new to the forum and glad to be apart of it. I'm a first year hunter and I love every part of it. I hunt on private land in 6J near Boonville. I've seen a few doe and 1 buck. Has anyone else in this area or anywhere else been experiencing this? There is so much sign of deer, but nothing when it comes time to hunt. I see 100 deer a night on the side of the road, but none when hunting. Also, if anyone has any tips for a newbie, that'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
