Almost Central NY

Recommended Posts

Hello folks. I'm a novice hunter from almost Central NY. I live amongst the cow fields about 20 minutes south of the ADK park. I'm here hoping that I can learn from those who know more than I do. That's probably most of you. LOL. This is my second season and so far I still have all of my tags. I have a rifle but I'm not comfortable shooting it in the area I hunt due to people being near. I'm hoping to fill at least one of my tags before Dec 19.

welcome in!  Glad to see another CNY'er .  Best of luck and ask away, we might not know any more but we have prob made enough mistakes to help out a bit.  Best of luck on a tag filler!

Pick a well used trail and set up downwind of the trail about 60 yds preferably higher up do you can see well in both directions.  Ideally a pinch point where deer have to travel through like the end of a ravine or pond. Take a couple of branches to break up your silhouette and bring a comfortable folding chair with a pad and camp out. I prefer a tripod chair that can be leaned against a tree.  Good luck!!!

I'm actually in Montgomery County. Almost CNY.

Welcome. I grew up in Herkimer and spent a lot of time hunting Western Montgomery county. I've seen some really good bucks taken in that area over the years.

Howdy from Oneida county.

Be prepared to be jealous of all the deer the guys in the western and southern part of the state see ;)

      4.Get neccessary equipment for processing my own deer in the garage(needs a good cleanin before opening day!!)
      5.See the smile on Jay's(turkeyfeathers) face with his first bow harvest!!!!

      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! 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!
