Sitting in 7F thick stuff.   Season winding down.  Just glad to say I was able to get out this year. 

Was a great year.  I’m still here and hunting when a year ago that couldn’t be a given. 

Enjoyed a bow hunt in Kansas that messed up my NY hunting for a couple weeks.  Hunted hard last weekend and back at it again today and tomorrow. 

 

I firmly believe that once we muddle through the nonsense our biggest issue is access.  Finding quality hunting properties is very difficult.  And expensive

My hunting partner just told me of an elderly neighbor who doesn't have enough firewood. So instead of hunting with our smoke poles, we will be cutting firewood off the farm this weekend instead.

Well calling it.  Walked all the usual places and a few that aren’t typical.   Not a deer pushed up.  I think they and I need a 10 month rest.  

Merry Christmas all!    On to squirrels and yotes.

This season is the worst for me,i wounded another deer yesterday. When it rains it pours. 

Tracked it over three different properties until i got to one i can't track on. I jumped her once,no shot.

Worst season ever,aside from my first where i got nothing,but at least i didn't hurt anything besides my ego either then.

I might go out Monday or Tuesday,or maybe quit while i am behind.

Mistakes happen bud. If you have wounded 2, and it is not your zero, odds are your next opportunity will net a clean kill!

Haven't been out in 10 days. Was planning on going out this afternoon and tomorrow morning but hemming and hawing about it trying to get motivated. Then I let the dog out, and I hear that they're finally cutting the corn in the field that the wooded part of my property wraps around on two sides. I'm suddenly motivated!!

Would rather miss and eat tag soup or get no shots at all than wound. As far as ranking bad seasons go anyhow.

Sounds like you did your best to recover and that’s all that really counts in my book.

Same guy has shot 4x starting st 7:16.  Sounds like feeding single rounds into a slug gun 

Bout the same here. Two shots on the property line.  Took a walk to see if someone on lease but never saw anyone.  Neighbors are hunting on both sides.  Hard to tell where a one lone shot is exactly.  But def muzzleloader and then a follow shot 10 min later. One neighbor hunts his back yard in a tower on the property line. Think it was him.  

Maybe go back out this pm. Not sure. Not as motivated but will miss it by next weekend.

Hey Chris whats on the other end of that ramrod? Sod just got the same one and its just a threaded hole, seemed strange to me that it didnt have an attachment for seating the bullet but nothing it came with fits through the rings

Just a disaster of a morning! Up at 4:30 and get geared up drive 50 minutes to the island. Flip the river is flooded and can’t drive in. Did not expect that. Takes an hour to drive around other bridge..... f that next spot is Tully also an hour. So pull in to there at a crisp 7:50 am

No sense sitting so trying to work up a deer now
Still some snow here.

      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!
