Happens if their Nuts never descend. It’s called something like chryptochordism. They are sterile and never drop their horns. It is usually caused by a groin injury when they are young. Basically a steer. I shot one before. Took me 4 years to see him in light. Never ruts

What is the best whitetail you have killed?  How about muley?  Just curious.   You live in NY and hunt here every year   
Not sure why you are so impressed with hunting out west.  It’s just a different style based in large part on terrain and species hunted.   Lobbing it in from 65 or getting close enough to shoot at 10.  Which takes more skill.  Glassing and spot and stalk or hunting areas so thick you can’t see 20yds but have to predict movement, which takes more skill.  Answer is both but different skills. 


I haven’t hunted good whitetail property, so it’s not an apples to apples comparison. I’m sure I could get a 130-150” WT on a hunt. I see the guys on Bowsite killing them every year at certain outfitters

I'm always talking fair chase.
Whitetails are super-cagey and IMO the 2 hardest places to hunt them are big woods and suburbs.
They are so good at avoiding humans that in large tracts it's nearly impossible to beat them (ask Maine hunters).
In the suburbs they know exactly whose shrubs they can eat at night and who's got apples and table scraps out back.
In ag country they are more predictable but still you don't see 10 whitetail bucks bedded within 50 yds of each other.
Im not trying to pile on but I do think North Eastern Whitetails are the best game animal in NA.


I think the grey ghost Coues deer is widely regarded as the toughest deer to hunt in NOrth America

never aged him. Horns grew really

slow year round. First pic I got was in November when he was a little 4 point at 1.4 years. Kept Getting pics for several years and figured he was about 4-5 years old. Shot him a first light when he was going to bed. Lived behind my neighbors House. I mounted him figuring he was a once in a lifetime.

Bizzy is just trying to fire up the site with his BS tonight....


Not BS. Some people will argue spot & stalk bear hunt is harder than a baited treestand hunt. Some would argue the other way. There will always be varying opinions on what is tough, what isn’t. A mountain goat hunt or sheep hunt could be brutally tough. Many guys start with a bow, then fallback to the rifle so they can tag out.

15-20 mature bucks per day from the ground on this hunt. Did the hunter outsmart these deer or is it product of the land?

The radar looks like Walt Disney threw up.  Seriously i can't remember a worse fall/hunting season for weather.  Nothing but wind and rain.  And forecast is for one dry day on Sunday for the next 7 days.  Crazy.

I've heard Axis deer is hard to shoot ,not necessarily hard to hunt but hard to hit . We hear guys blame their poor shot on the deer jumping the string but Axis deer really do jump the string ,you need a fast bow to send one before they can move out of the way.

I hear ya biz...

I just don't think whitetails fair chase is your favorite type of hunting because it is less active for the hunter and sightings can be dismal for weeks if your not on a preserve or with a guide.

Ofcourse there are places where less pressure means more sightings and sometimes even less sketchy deer, but give them a reason to be cagey and they will.

To me since you brought it up paid baited hunts are the worst...my dad has harvested 3 pocono black bear targeted (not coincided with deer season) in 10 years fair chase from a tree stand.

I understand why they bait both for pop control in states like jersey or up in Canada where the woods are real big.  I just don't care for it.

After last nights excitement seeing my target buck I jumped out of bed 30 mins before my 5am alarm. Went for coffee, made a little drive around checking fields with my head lights but couldn’t see much with all this fog and rain. Snuck back out to the blind at 540. I can only hope a doe will come in for breakfast and bring big daddy with her. This rain sure does suck! After this weekend I think I’ll need to wear chest waders to go anywhere on my property.

I'm not gonna laugh at this...

if you were hunting on moogs property (the way that they hunt and manage, not lobbing or sock stalking) you're odds of a P&Y would go up...but that's the rub...

It takes a lot of time and effort in the season and the offseason to maintain deer habitat and scout/hunt it properly without moving deer out.

Paying someone to take you in front of animals is a cool experience but is definetly not even a fruit compared to fair chase deer managing.

I feel your frustration your opportunities are limited to mostly weekends and this season that really sucks.

I’m hunting close to home this morning. Forcing myself to stay on this couch until 6:45 so I’m not out there getting wet in the dark. I don’t think it’ll be shooting light until 8. I’m not optimistic at all but 11/2 is the day my Dad passed so I always hunt it. One deer in 18 years on 11/2 lol

My truck tires were about 2" sunk in the mud in the field I was parked in at my lease yesterday ...a little hairy there for a second.

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
