Thanks Turkeyfeathers for the snack!  I remember when your Dad (RIP) would give us snacks before we checked our trap lines!  
Fingers crossed with my new scope!!

ANYTHING BUT KRAVE! The former owner tried to partner with my jerky and I never did because his sucks. Don't eat that gross gummy fake jerky. Your tastebuds will thank you

It only got uncomfortable for me.   Dan just kept the hug going.    Actually we almost had a shot on a doe but never got clear enough for a shot.  

Called It!

They got it back to the trail that follows the property line. Rack is in pristine condition. And now she knows what a deer drag is like. Her second best ever deer - happy daughter!

Daughter comes to our place every year. She hunts harder than I. Always more glad that she gets her NY road trip buck than if I get my own. It’s become a nice tradition. Happy Dad. Now I’m out for the afternoon shift where I saw those bucks at last light yesterday.

Well just got a call from the guy ive been taking this year. Not good for his gun.  He dropped it going in opening day. Well just slipped into snow. Told him that wont hurt it recoil is worse then slipping into soft snow.  Well he just told me he dropped it 3 times that day.  Once when i was there, once on a stone wall then bounced it off his door jam in his truck when he got home saturday.  And now the scope is cracked.  So i told him to go shoot it or if not he needs to use my single shot.  Trying to build him back up but hes pretty down on himself.
Hope its a Leupold or Vortex otherwise he may be out some big bucks for a new scope

Last year I dropped my nikon monarch binocs out of stand onto a pile of rocks. both eye pieces were sheared off. I contacted nikon and it took about 6 weeks but I had a brand new pair mailed to me. They even gave me the monarch 5 when I had the 3.

Well, just got done hanging up my first deer ever with a bow. Will post the full story in the harvest thread, but ive been bow hunting since I was 13. A 12 year drought, and even though he’s not as big as what was posted by others today, I’ll never forget it, and I still got the fever. 50dd04ab1160ce0ed79d9f0a9e3b4e94.jpga60e760933b68c445095e3721f50eae5.jpg

Did he take a deep sniff of your hair?

Kills me that a couple of weeks ago, I went to a local deer farm to buy some fresh doe in estrus urine, Top Shelf stuff. I'm a sucker and had high hopes, so I ended up spending $80! Never had any deer pay attention to it or anything! Even young bucks would walk right over the dragline without giving it a second thought.

On two occasions now, I've had this spike walk in under my stand and lick my freshly deposited urine that I just launched from my stand though! It comes in and licks the branches, eats the leaves and snow that it's on! WTF...

Who is going to brave the cold in the morning? I have hunted Thanksgiving morning for about 20 years now but tomorrow is supposed to be brutal. News said -12 windchill in Albany so I can't imagine it won't be colder in 4k. I can't stay warm when it is 20 and a slight breeze. Sent a text to the guys. Didn't want to be the only idiot at DD in the morning and go out and freeze to death by myself. I am going to give it a shot. I hope I can make it until 9am.

As I'm coming out of the woods across the street, crunching on the ice on the road, I looked over behind the house and noticed a deer looking at me. About 300 yards away so I glass it and see it's an 8 point. I texted my girlfriend to let her know so I could possibly get a plan together. The deer starts to feed and then I noticed it looking towards the house, I see my girlfriend walking to her car and the buck on a run heading straight away. I texted again and said never mind, you just spooked him. Finally got a text back, "Sorry". Oh well, my tough week continues.

Heading out around noon, really don't want to get skunked again...

Who is seeing what and where?

I feel like the sign indicates traveling from thick cherry/elder/grapevine bedding which is getting browsed hard and ag and also traveling through and bedding in pine stands.

Sitting warm, dry and out of the wind. Seeing no deer but at least I’m comfortable doing it. Almost feels wrong but I put in plenty of years sitting in trees without even a stand... just climb up, wedge a foot into a limb and hang on. 

Im liking this a whole lot better.

I didn't see crap.  Ever y track I saw was headed towards the White oaks.  Gonna head back in at noon.  Wind is picking up, supposed to be nasty later.  Wish I could wear my fleece base layer but the walking would make me a puddle of sweat.

      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

      Hello to all my fellow bow hunters! Here's a question for you, if you had the chance to hunt and win $50,000, would you do it? Well your chance has come! It's the Bone Collector North American Whitetail Championship! The biggest and most exciting deer hunting tournament that's ever hit the whitetail woods! Here's how it works, throughout the USA and Canada, there's 14 different regions, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey would be considered as Region 1, the bow hunter that harvests the largest P&Y scoring buck in he or she's region will qualify for a championship hunt in the land of Giants, (KANSAS) at Wicked Outfitters for a chance to win $50,000!!  You may ask, is there an entry fee? Yes, there is a $300 entry fee, but here's the cool part, when you sign up, the crew at the championship will send you a gear package in the mail with over $400 worth of hunting gear! You will also have your name put in for hunt give away drawings and product give a ways! How cool is that!? You might be thinking to yourself, I don't have a big enough buck to hunt that i can win anything with. NOT the case, if you harvest a buck and enter it into the tournament, you will be put in for another drawing for the Kansas HUNT! How do you sign up? Simply go to www.nawtc.com fill out the entry form that's required for you to sign up, and your ready to go!
