With all these memories being shared today, of those no longer with us, it goes to show you at the end of the day it's not about the horns, it's not about the meat, it's not about the kill, it's not about a fixed or mechanical,it's not about an xbow or traditional, it's about making memories and enjoying the great outdoors with others, family and friends. The moment we make it about anything else we are just wasting our energy. We are blessed to have these opportunity's. Take advantage my friends, take advantage.

Two years ago today started off like every other day of hunting with my dad, brother and I. The three of us sitting at mom and dads dining room table for an hour before we had to head to the woods having coffee and breakfast. My dad and I arguing because he made the coffee to weak and where we were going to sit, where to sit my brother and what drive to make first and in what direction. The night before was like so many other nights for our family, my wife at the time, my daughter my brother and sister-in-law and I all had dinner at mom and dads and we spent most of the night picking on each other about something or other and talking about the next days hunt.

That morning I sat exactly where I’m sitting right now and was planning on doing the first push to my dad and brother. Little did I know that would be the last drive I would ever do for my dad. Dad killed a doe that morning then as many of you know suffered heart failure and died on top of his last deer just after he finished gutting it. My brother and I were on either side of him when it happened.

They say that time heals everything and that’s not true, I miss the old man more today than I did the day he died. He was the greatest father, “papa” husband and man that I have ever known.

I love you old man!

I was never closer to anyone than my dad.  I spend every April 1 for opening day of trout season, reflecting like this as well.  Thanks for posting. And you will have tough days for sure and a lot of good memory days too.  Tears in the woods today but it is where you belong and he would've and is right with you.

Took a slow walk and sat for 45 minutes tucked in the brush. But nothing. Had to shoot out the muzzleloader and clean it.  Then took deer to processor.  First one I've taken in a long time. Seemed like a great operation there. Marsh Mill in Bridgeport , owner took me for a tour. Was very impressed.

No deer hunting for me today. I’m out smoking some deer and salmon I caught on the salmon river and doing a little duck hunting by the river. The complete lack of sucks I saw driving along the river made me think I wasn’t going to see a single duck, but after 20 min in my spot 2 black ducks came in cupped and I walked away with one. No decoys or calls, just sitting in a spot they like to go. I’ll be back out in an hour or so to try again. IMG_8342.jpgIMG_8342.jpg

They are good peeps. Ed is a stand up guy. He heads up the board for the venison donation program for the state as well I believe. They also do all the deer the Feds shoot out of Green Lakes for the food bank. They have a clean and well run operation, I have been pleased with their work. Been going there for quite a few years. If I don't cut it up myself it goes to them.

I think people who don’t hunt can’t really understand exactly the feeling it brings. It isn’t about harvesting something, thats a necessary end to what we do. Its the planning, the trip, the time spent with others. I have memories of myself , my father , uncles and cousins hunting from when i was in grade school, too young to hunt but my dad took me along to enjoy the time with him.  he is gone now, for over 11 years, but i still talk about those trips with my sons. I am sorry for your loss, but you will keep his memories for ever.

Cool . Been hearing lots of good things about them.  I ordered basic steaks, roasts and grind. Gonna mix my own burger, but I did order 4 lbs of hotdogs to try.  Ed seemed like a great guy.

I can relate to that.  My own father and brother are not much into hunting and fishing, nor was my grandfather on my father's side.   I think I inherited my own fondness for those activities from my grandfather on my mom's side.  He passed before I was old enough to hunt, but he took me fishing a few times while I was in grade school. He also left me his hunting and fishing equipment. 

Even though my dad and brother were not with me on many hunts, those when they were, were memorable.  I will never forget the two red rows of corn, that the only buck my dad ever killed ran between, after he double-lunged it with a slug from his Browning sweet-sixteen pheasant gun.   My brother and I had pushed it out of some heavy cover and he shot it right in the middle of the lane behind the barn.  They still have that little rack on a plaque next to the fireplace, and I remember that hunt every time I look at it. 

While the memories of hunts that we have shared with our own families and friends on this earth are comforting, they ain't nothing compared to what we have to look forward to.  I can't wait to knock down a nice buck up there with my grandad's Ithaca deerslayer 16-gauge, while he is standing by my side.   It is a lot easier to not lament past losses, knowing that such a bright future awaits, and that it will last for eternity

Sorry for your loss. When you lose your Dad, you lose a part of yourself. I lost my Dad, my one and only hunting partner, 12 years ago to a sudden massive heart attack. Hunting season is always bitter sweet. I left his stands up and it's still painful walking by those stands. I've used his guns every year ever since he passed, just to feel like he's still out there with me.

Hearing all the stories of guys losing their Dad's reminds me of a song that I hear often, "You Should Be Here" by Cole Swindell. About a guy that misses sharing those special times with his Dad. It ends with him at his Dad's headstone.... Pretty sad. (The first 40 sec is slow, but he's telling his Dad about something big in his life.)

I’ve been going there for years as well.  It’s a clean, well run operation.  It does get very busy during the first two weeks of firearms season and they’ve had to limit how many deer they take each day. A few years ago I dropped off a big buck that I needed caped for a mount and had to wait almost a week to get it even though Ed told me it should only be a couple days.  Weather was warm and my taxidermist wasn’t sure the cape would be usable.  It’s definitely first come first served and they don’t move a deer up in line to get it caped, which I understand.  I think they got some complaints so began limiting intake numbers.

      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!
