Got daughter to help me work on an old logging trail food plot. PH I'm sure is off with limited sun. Got some green growth and deer seem to like it. All times of the day. Put up new blind I ordered at one end. Perfect for the normal wind there. 50 yard max shot for her. So my ultimate goal is for her to get one on the ground this year. Cmon youth hunt ! Also picked up this Kenai holster for the .44. A few adjustments and it'll ride higher and sit center chest. Hope to shoot my second deer this year with the hand cannon.

Another go at a clover plot this year better results. Hope to see more shooters this year than last. Grouping with the bow 20-30 yards out was much better all summer and daughter had fun with it to.

Shoulder surgery in May to be able to hunt the bow opener. Looks like I will make it!

 Lots of watching my 13 y.o. grandson shoot his bow over the summer. Hoping to get his first deer this year. After football and travel baseball seasons are over.

New hunting rifle for the firearms season.  Planning to make some memories with it, before handing it down, when my hunting days are done.

New blinds built, old ones redone.

Look forward to the quiet time in the woods.  And some snow!

      Hey everyone! I'm Louis Backlas, and I'm from Wyoming county N.Y. This past fall I entered the largest deer hunting tournament the hunting industry has ever seen. The Bone Collector North American Whitetail Championships. In this tournament, there was 14 different regions in the United States. Region 1 being New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Winners of each region qualify for a hunt in Kansas at Wicked Outfitters and will have a chance to win $50,000. I was blessed to be the winner for region 1! Pretty Excited here about this! I wanted to invite all of you N.Y hunters to watch my latest video that was uploaded to my YouTube Channel, Cross Over the River Outdoors. In this video, I will take you on the hunt that qualified me for the championships in Kansas coming this September! After watching the video, Please give my YouTube channel a follow and you can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook @ Cross Over the River Outdoors! Send some prayers my way ya'll! Thanks and God Bless!

      Hey Everyone! I just uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel! If ya'll enjoy watching whitetails in the rut then you need to watch this! One of the coolest encounters that I've ever been able to video! All filmed off the back of my horse. Note: this is not on a deer farm. These are all wild free ranging whitetails! I'd love it if ya'll would give me some follows on my hunting pages! You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram  and YouTube at Cross Over the River Outdoors! I hope Ya'll enjoy the video! God Bless!

      Hey Everyone! Who's all ready to bust some thunder chickens upside the head!? Here's a short video to help get you fired up for those spring mornings!

      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! I woke up one morning and look out my front window only  to find that my 3D deer target was in pieces all over the front lawn! A fired up buck decided to take his frustrations out on the target!  this took place sometime in November during the peek of the rut. Hope ya'll get a kick out of it!

      Can anyone confirm this is ok? I hit a deer tonight with the car, went back later to get the back straps. They look fine.
      But look at the head is it okay? Every deer I've ever gotten has either been a buck with horns, a doe, or a spike of some sort but I've never gotten a deer where the antlers are gone. This is okay? Those holes are normal? Thank you very much. For your help.
