Didn't see anything yesterday and only heard 4 different shots in 9a. Really crunchy walk in this morning on frozen snow. Good luck everyone. 

Yesterday morning (where I was) in 9A I heard maybe 10 shots (other than shots taken on my property). Also heard a bunch of .22lr from the property next door late morning and afternoon, which was really annoying. However, we think it kicked up a small buck to one of my hunting buddies late in the day when they started shooting again, so maybe it was a blessing in disguise. Overall, it did seem like a relatively quiet opening day.

I'm also in 9a. Very quiet yesterday and not that much better today

Looks like the "chase" stage of the rut is about to kick in..


Never forget the 241 GIs that were killed in Beirut because of Reagan administration policies.

Springfield #1898 30-40 Krag. My dads. I can remember telling me he waited for a nice buck to keep walking uphill in PA so he didn’t have to drag him uphill. 300 yard shot and deer tumbled down the hill dead. Miss you Pop 3-29-2018. Now I have tears in the tree stand f25cac4e587b45fdff5ce4bd817e02c2.jpg

Nice Krag. It looks like the barrel band has been eliminated. I'd like to see a separate thread posted on the "Guns and Rifles and Discussions" page about your rifle with some pictures.

If I don't see any activity by 9:00, I think I'll head out. Got the buck hanging from yesterday that I can get cut up.

Out of the 25 or so bucks I've killed in the last 35 years, all but 1 were killed after 10:00 AM.

You can be stealthy in crunchy snow. Just get on your belly and slide like a seal. Works every time. 

If it wasn't all up hill and swampy I would give that a try....

That's great!  Hope you put one done with it.  I shot a deer a few years ago with the 30/30 my dad and I went in halves on . It was a special moment. And I always carry it at least once during season. Good luck.

7 this morning  i let a doe have it. about 50 yards. looks like a gut and liver shot. i backed out. went to get the one that walked out after it. that doe dropped where i shot it. The liver is in the dehydrator. Wont the dogs be happy. Going to have a little tenderloin breakfast and head back out after it. there is still a  little snow so tracking should be a breeze.I barley had the bullet stuffed down the barrel before I was lining up the second shot. Good times.

I called her in but her scent was more to Biz’s liking. I was sniffing the Ashville royal blonde

      The 2018 deer season is only a few short months away, and we are bringing back a deer hunting contest, The HuntingNY Whitetail Classic! You can sign up for the contest by replying to this thread, sign up starts now and will end at Midnight on September 28, 2018 at which time this thread will automatically lock. In the contest section, each hunter will get their own thread, in which entries should be posted. Contest entries must be submitted by Midnight on January 2, 2019 (Sorry, seasons that run into 2019 are not included in this contest).


      Contest Rules

      -The Deer must be taken in NY during the 2018 deer season (Oct 1 - Dec 31)
      -Deer must be tagged with regular NYS carcass tags (Buck, DMP or Either Sex). Deer tagged with nuisance permits or DMAPs will not count.
      -There must be photos of the deer included in the post(s), they must clearly show the hunter, the antler points of bucks, a clear picture showing the inside spread measurement (must clearly see where each end of the tape measure is touching), this year's tag attached to the deer as well as a contest card (details below)
      -Each hunter can enter up to 2 bucks and 2 does


      Scoring system

      -Each deer will earn 10 points
      -Bucks will earn 1 additional point per scorable antler point
      -Scorable antler points are 1 inch in length measured from the base of the point. Fliers, kickers, droptines, etc ARE scorable
      -Total score of each hunter will be added up at the end of the contest, highest total score wins
      -In the event of a tie, greatest measured inside spread of the entered buck(s) will be the tie breaker (if hunters are tied and each entered 2 bucks, the spread on each entered buck will be measured)


      Contest Card
      With a black marker, make your contest card on a sheet of white 8 1/2" x 11" paper. Write large enough so it can be seen in one of the entry photos. It should include the following
       
      At the top, write - 2018 HuntingNY Whitetail Classic
      below that include your screen name, and the date and location of the harvest (WMU)
       
      The card must be clearly visible in at least 1 photo of deer or that entry will NOT count.


      Youth Division

      There is a separate youth division for hunters under age 18. Exact same rules and scoring as above.


      Prizes

      We will be announcing this years prizes in a separate thread once we have the contest section ready.
