  6. I do have it. I don't use it like he shows climbing with you bow in it, I pull my bow up once I'm set. It is a great holder though. But the stabilizer straps are such a simple thing that make a huge difference.Sent from my SM-G935V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I use the stabilizer straps and will never use another climber without them. I also use the molle rucksack straps what a difference. Sent from my SM-G935V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. 2 bucks and a doe here so far. Sent from my SM-G935V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I don't find much enjoyment in watching the hunting shows on TV. They do little to show the average hunter anything more than promoting gear and hunting guided hunts. I did recently start watching midwest whitetails chasing november on YouTube and have been enjoying it. It definitely has got me excited for the upcoming season. Check it out its not your typical hunting show. Sent from my SM-G935V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. My daughter got this guy behind the house this morning. She is excited to get one for the wall.
  15. My buddy shot this bruiser at 8:30 this morning. He was pushing a yearling doe around an apple orchard.
  16. Wayne County is slow for me too. Not a deer yet.
  17. I 2nd the summits. But with any climber I recommend getting the third hand archery stabilizer straps and bow holder. I added them this year and the straps lock the upper portion in so tight it's like it's connected by a ratchet strap.
  18. Then when you dismiss the noise as the squirrel that been there all day one gets in close before you know it.
  19. Matt, I used to think that getting your "own" big piece of woods would give you a deer utopia after a few years of selective harvest and it will definitly will without a doubt give you better chances of hunting mature deer. However if the deer in your area are not active there is nothing you can do to make them active. My buddies and I have about 10 properties between us from 15 to about 200 acres that we have access to, only a couple of the smaller ones we have sole access. The furthest properties are maybe 15 miles apart. With this number of properties we have many options based on conditions and deer activity. I would say that our single best scouting tool is late night or early morning spotting. We start in August and if by hunting season we have not seen what we feel is a quality buck on a property most likely that property will not be hunted much that year or may be used to harvest some does. Prior to the 2015 season we could use this early season spotting to put us on those summer feeding patterns to get our chance at a shooter. Once the pre-rut and rut kick in we use it to find where that activity is strongest and hunt those areas. Then late season we use it to find the late season feeding patterns. Shooting a mature buck in New York with archery gear requires patience, luck, skill, luck, hard work, luck and the attitude that you may not fill your tag if your personal minimum does present itself. It sounds like you are on a good piece but my advice for next year would be to find a few more spots even if they are only a few acres to give you more choices when your goto piece is not producing. Most likely its just a matter of time until they turn on in your area and this cold front may be what triggers them. Good luck and keep posting your results
  20. I also feel the same way about single pin sights.
  21. I went to the QAD this year and love it. I have also used the trophy ridge revolution, I never had a problem with it but some people have. Definitely not the quality off the QAD though but not the cost either. Both rests have arrow containment so it can fall off.
  22. My daughter has had good luck with the magnus stinger buzz cut 2 blades. She shooting like 43 pounds with a 27" draw length. You want cut on contact and definitely not mechanicals.
  23. They are starting to fall like dominos. I was fortunate enough to harvest this 8 (once a 9) point last eveing. I know of 2 other good bucks shot yesterday as well. I chose to go to a set that is in a small 20 yard strip of hardwoods between a hay field and a thicket with a few apple trees in it. This guy came down the edge of the thicket around 5:15 and 10 or 15 minutes behind a pair of yearlings. I have hundreds of pictures of this buck and not one of them in daylight, he was definitely in seek mode. The pictures I have show he lost his kicker sometime between the night of 10/23 and 10/24. I made a good shot on him and he ran straight into the thicket, I gave him just over an hour and went after him. When I found him 50 yards from where he had been shot the coyotes had already eaten a hole into the entry wound and opened up a hole in the stomach and started gutting him for me. They have now moved up my hitlist to just below focusing on helping getting a buck for my daughter. Good luck and safe hunting. Greg
