2020 Field to Fork Program - Northeastern NY

Recommended Posts

Program is off and running throughout NY state as you may have seen in Culvers post for their area.

 

For this area of NY, we're hoping to get 10 new hunters their first deer. Again theres a good mix of young and older folks, both men and women.

 

Back on September 23rd we had a state wide Zoom meet and greet to kickoff the program.

Today, October 10th was our range day. We had a rifle range and then mentees or mentors could check out vertical bows and crossbows at an archery range we also setup. Almost all mentees had various shoot n see type paper targets and some reactive steel gongs at 50 yard increments out to 200 yards. Then for mentors we had targets out to a 500 yard steel gong.

We again had our plywood proficiency deer. Its blanked off with matching color and shot up cardboard so you cant spot and correct your shots. In the back is a white paper with vitals outlined you pull off to see how well you did.

Good work. Love seeing this
Some people are worried with all the license sales and lack of in person instruction. This program is by far the best way to start hunting. New hunters are hunting with a seasoned mentors on some of the best hunting ground on the area. They get one on one instruction for shooting. we have them learning how to process deer by professional butcher. Success rate is very high. What's not to like if your a new hunter.

Would love to know a bit more about this. Do you have a square cut out behind the cardboard to prolong the life of the deer?

The outline of the plywood is the deer as you see. Then an outline of anatomically correct vitals are cut out. The cardboard in the front is just a big stapled square so you can't see that outline. Then photocopy of vitals layed out on white paper thats behind that and held on by thumb tacks. So yea its lasted a while as you're only shooting through cardboard and paper. Any fumbled shots into plywood are marked with a black sharpie.
