Taking the bow out this morning to some state property. Would like to find a doe  or two.

Good am! Heading out shortly. Any one seeing activity using scent? Debating if I should use some this morning or not.

Sitting in a new spot where I tracked back the tracks that walked my property line yesterday. Looks promising but even if not, better than being on a train into work. 37, no wind and dead quiet in 3g.

Good luck to all out there.

I know nothing about atvs so apologies in advance if this is stupid. I don't know what a recovery rope is, but if you have a marine supply place around you, you may be able to pick up an anchor line that would do the deal. I have used the same to pull trucks and trailers out of soft sand on the beach. Just a thought if you end up getting in a pinch.

Saw lots of tracks on my way in and it looks like land mines went off under the oaks from the deer digging for acorns.

The walk in this morning was much quieter!

Thanks Tarheel.  That may have worked.  Never thought about anchor line.    The ropes are arriving today.  Hopefully early enough to get it out.   Recovery ropes just have high strength and often metal loops at end that I will use a shackle as a connector.

I am seriously considering a second set of mud tires for when the swamp gets bad like now.   Just toss em on for hunting season.

I put Maxxis Zilla's on my outlander, went a bit larger and wider than factory. The are super aggressive and work really well, they do dig holes really quick though. Not too expensive and way better than factory tires. The lugs are like 2-3" tall. IMG_20181103_135301898_HDR.jpeg

Last bow season I arrived a nice doe and she ran up the hill onto neighbors property. You have to know this woman to appreciate her. Has a large horse farm where people board their horses. I have had numerous occasions where her clients were riding their horses on my land and I had to tell them “no, this isn’t her property, did you see the posted signs?”  The deer runs about 50 yards onto her property and falls. Right there in the open woods. I call her on the phone and explain the situation to her. She says “hang on, I’ll be right there “. Pulls up on her 4 wheeler and starts yelling at me about shooting “her deer”. She says there’s no way I’m going on her property to get that deer and she’s sure it’s not dead. After a few go rounds, I end by saying, “can you at least go over and pull my arrow out of your not dead yet deer? The one that’s been dead for twenty minutes now. She says she’ll call me when she finds it. I tell her good, I’ll need it for the next horse that comes on my property! Yep, lost my cool. Not good but that carcass sat there all season and made good coyote food. Sad. 

Honestly I would have just waited till she left and went and got it. I have no patience for people like that... I would also call police now every time one of her riders crossed onto your land

I don’t know about up there but it’s supposed to be very very cold here Wednesday. Why not let the ground freeze a little more and try again with another wheeler before it fully freezes

Sounds like the same thing. In West Marine they are called anchor lines and Cabela's they are called recovery ropes. The metal grommet makes it easy to connect. I leave one in the back of my beach truck. Lots of Honda CRVs have been saved from places they shouldn't have been.

Good luck getting it out.

Been in the stand since it got light out. Saw a ton of tracks coming in. There are fresh beds in the food plot and areas where they’ve been digging up turnips. Hopefully something shows up today.

      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.

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