I can’t count points with crappy pics  but nearby non hunting neighbor says 12-13. He’s definitely a slob 

I can tell you what would happen to me. I would become obsessed with that SOB and hunt there with a bow every day.  Worth the risk of eating a tag to get one shot at that thing.  

Down a doe somewhere quick and drive it directly to Constanzas then hunt that monster like he owes you money.

As time expires 2 doe come in to 30 yards. A little while later a nice buck comes out and starts chasing 2 other doe. Now I’m stuck in the tree with her at 17 yards! After legal shooting time! F me!

For short hunts I probably will. But sucks he’s nocturnal. 3 cams on small parcel.  No day pics of him. 

A couple years ago, I had a daytime encounter with a big one, on the last day that I could hunt during archery season. That stand was also too close to structures (mobile homes and sheds) to use with a gun.  Immediately after the encounter, I pulled that stand. 

I got on Google maps sattelite feature,  and located a spot that was about 550 feet from the closest man-made structure, but within shotgun range of where I last saw the buck.

On opening day morning, my second shot from 300 ft away, broke the buck's back and dropped him, just over 500 ft from the nearest man-made structure.  It was fortunate that he fell where he did, because he required a 3rd "finisher" shot.  Had he dragged himself a few more feet, I'd have had to use my knife to stay legal. 

Is it illegal to fire guns at your spot ?  NY law says that you may not fire a weapon closer than 500 feet from a man-made structure, without permission of the owner, however your bullets may land closer than that. That means that the deer can be closer than 500 ft from a structure but the shooter can not. Maybe you can use google maps to locate a good firing position.

Very depressing afternoon, shot the biggest buck I have ever seen from the stand, I knew as soon as I shot that the hit was higher than I would have liked. I watched him run for about 30 yards then slowly walk off into the swamp. I waited 30 min and got on blood. It was high but I’m pretty sure it was high lung. Although the arrow had mostly meat and fat on it, it was a complete pass through. Followed blood from 4-7 before it dried up. I marked last blood. My plan for tomorrow is to sit a stand right by there in the morning to look for birds circling. I called dear search and they don’t like to track in my area.
