Hiked in to public land in 4H and just like the last 3 times I hunted this area there was someone sitting in the spot I was planning to hunt. Three different spots all taken.

Which park? I did Dutton Ridge State Park last year and some strange dude ganked my spot last day of rifle. Only good that came out of it was motivating me to get a private land lease...

Mental note. Roosted toms do not like red head lamps. The two I roosted freaked out when I flipped it on and by the sounds of it are somewhere in Ohio.

Better luck tomorrow.

That dark blob is a skunk , I’ve seen them in this spot every year for like 20 years, came out ten yards from him and he never much cared .

Saw six deer tonight nothing close two bucks kind of play fighting .

Also at 59 with a bunch of bad parts , I’m reminded why I got rid of my climber and hang ons ,those little platforms aren’t for me anymore !

I’d be better off just hunting 1 week per year. Pre rut Midwest that’s it. Less stress, more deer

You know , I’ve said that myself . I can go hunt with my buddy who lives in Montana and shoot a nice buck every time , for less then many guys pay in taxes on their camps .

or my nephew in Tenn.

Saw another 2 yotes tonite .  Not a single deer all day.  Different county I was hunting so def different yotes.  Couldn't get a shot....need a gun..

Been a tough year for me so far. Seeing a lot less deer than usual.  But I guess one big buck or one good day turns that around.

I have been working all week, waiting for a chance to get into a stand . Came home from work and wife is having a essentials oil party. The entire house smells like the sundowner. Even if I get a scent free shower that smell is going to cling to me when I get out.... And she looks at me like I’m the crazy one

Had a great morning in the stand, but the evening was pretty slow. Thankful for the 2 button bucks that kept me entertained while they munched on acorns 15 yards away.

      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.
