This guy finally showed again. Got him in velvet...and then the other night at the same zip-tie scrape setup...First photo is in the fog when he was in velvet. Now...he's hard horn...and a good one for my neck of the woods. I'm not in his core area because I have not seen him since. But there's always hope! :rolleyes:

Just curious, what unit are you in?   Nice looking bucks, and choices you've got. :drinks:

one not far from PA with antler restrictions or Stuben county. Definitely not in Eastern NY. Many of those bucks have age though and it shows.

What is a zip-tie scrape?

You can google it. But it’s snipping the overhanging branch off a hot scrape and transporting it to another mock scrape. Zip tie it to the mock scrape's overhanging branch.

I’m in 9Y. Wellsville. Just a bit north of the Pa. border in the Genesee River valley and surrounding hills.

Definitely have a great area. Looking forward to seeing what you end up taking.

I've passed on a few good ones, bigger than some of my mounts. Can't pull the trigger yet with some of the top level bucks I have on cam...20 yards from my stands. The best is yet to come! Soon the big boys will be running in the daytime.

Nah. I disagree. North central Pa. is a wasteland for deer hunters. Sure, there are a few big bucks. But having hunted Pa. since 1970 every year until recently,  with bow and gun, the buck population there is a joke. If anything, NY bucks flood into Pa. and increase their stats. Pa. doesn't want deer, it wants timber.

You disagree yet just proved my point. You think north central PA is a "waste land" for bucks yet PA WMU 3A that spans the whole border south of you still take almost 4 bucks per square mile. That's more than practically any WMU in NY's region 4 where Mowin (whom I replied to) and I are. In NY it's even better in Stuben county just east you, and to the north you is good too. I think you should just except how well you have it. lol Hope you get a crack at one of those bucks this fall.
