Reposting here in case any of my friends didn't see it in the Trail Cam forum.

I was holding off on posting this until it was closer to fruition, but it seems a lot of people on this site jump to conclusions and are really nasty about it, so my hand has been forced.

I am retiring in the spring of 2021 and have been making major moves towards the retired lifestyle I will be living then.  I’ve liquidated some large assets and restructured my retirement savings in order to reinvest in my future outside of God forsaken NY state.

I’ve had it with the the government here, from the taxes to the gun laws, and have unloaded everything that would hold me here.  The properties have been sold and the investments have been moved.

I now own 200 acres of beautiful deer country a little NW of State College, PA and plan to move there in the spring.  I got a tip from my niece the owner wanted to sell it and move south.  She lives right next door.  The timing was right and I closed the deal in June.  (I also got lucky on a deal for a 2020 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 recently when they offered 0% financing due to the virus crap.  That will be my farm truck and hunting vehicle.  I’m keeping the other SUV too.)

I posted a trail cam pic of a bear on the land and another of some deer there. Those deer are inside a 20 acre fenced in goat pen on my land.  They easily jump the goat fence to get in and out. My niece and her kids have goats they keep there.  The mineral lick is for the goats in the summer.  It’s removed at the end of August.  Perfectly legal in PA.  You can't hunt inside the goat pen either.

That being said, I’m looking forward to my retirement and new life in PA in the spring.  Was gonna wait until spring to announce it and just drop some hints along the way to see if anyone could guess where they were leading, but that has only caused some people to devolve into ankle biting critics, so there won’t be any fun in doing it.

I’m leaving NY, and none too soon IMHO. I hope all of you guys who are looking to do the same someday make it happen.

As far as HuntingNY.com goes, I wish it was worth staying on after I move, but I don’t think it’s worth my time anymore, so I wish all of the real hunters and intelligent patriots on this site all the best in the future.  Farewell and God Bless!

 

The lefties and ankle biters will not be missed.

State College has some exceptional trout water. If you don't already fly fish, you may want to take it up. 

Best of luck in all your future endeavours.

That is a good message board Rattler, and worth joining, I have belonged to it since 2005, do not post a lot there and posted mostly in the Hunting Dog section as I have a bunch of PA hunting dog men that are friends.

There are some real beauties on this board and in typical libtard fashion they convict before there is even a trial.

Enjoy. I have some slight regrets about not taking an opportunity there when I was 21, but family's here. I'll be gone someday when I'm retired I bet.

God bless you man! I grew up in PA and plan on moving back when I retire. The way it looks now, I may be able to work from home permanently, so we are thinking of moving to norther PA if that pans out. Best of luck.

Best of luck to you in your retirement. And stop in every now and again we can bash Cuomo’s stupidity for old times sake .
