    Range Finder Question

    There's tons of them - I have a cheap Simmons and it works great. I never range deer "like they do on TV" while bowhunting b/c it's ridiculous and I'm focused on my bow and concealment and keeping my eye on the deer. During gun, all my shots are within 100 yards so there's no need for it. Instead, I'll range trees near my stand and create a mental shooting perimeter and a few shooting distances with the tree landmarks. Good luck - keep it simple Chris

    Deer Processing

    Scott - I've used him twice in a pinch during bow when I couldn't cut one up myself b/c of warm conditions and I had work obligations the next day He's a super nice guy and you can even drop off a deer after hours and fill out the form and leave it in his barn area. He does a good job with deboning and packaging in freezer paper but I had quite a bit of hair He's fine in an emergency pinch Chris

    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    I agree with the "go and hunt" philosophy. That being said, it's not just about putting time in....it's about putting quality time in. I have had a huge success in the past 4-5 years practicing low impact hunting techniques - that is hunting the trailing time after a cold front passes but staying out of the woods on low quality days such as 80 degrees and sunny I hunt low impact stands early on (i.e peripheral stands that do not require me to travel huge distances through my property and leave my scent all over the place), etc. I hunt every day that I can be in the woods (probably 40 sits per year given my busy medical practice and family commitments) but I try and make every hunt a quality hunt. That being said, some of my hunts might not be the most optimal only b/c it might be the only day I have off from work, or the kids don't have a sporting event after school, so I can't be as choosey on some days. You analogy on charter captains is a good one, but theoretically if Captain A puts in twice the amount of time he might not be guaranteed twice the success if his time is spent fishing in poor areas or choosing a suboptimal day to be out. I can honestly say that it has made a huge difference in my success not only harvesting some beauties, but on the quality and quantity of deer that I'm seeing by trying to really practice low impact techniques. I'm a big believer in Jeff Sturgis's readings who talks about this in depth. Chris

    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    Totally disagree on the big buck early morning movement. They will move 1-2 times in the early morning to feed/browse and you can easily score on a nice buck if you can get near their bedding zone during the early season in stealth mode (don't use a climber, get into stand quickly, avoid noise, etc). I think it's a huge myth that big bucks don't move early morning during the early season and you are missing out on a huge opportunity to hunt early morning during early October. I 100% agree with low impact hunting early season and saving a prime stand hunt during late October after a passing cold front I have several nice bucks on my wall that were early season harvests near a prime big buck bedding area.

    I finally found one I really like this year - Browning Strike Force HD Pro......best camera I've ever had and I've tried many sub $200.00 and $100.00 cameras...Moultrie, Primos, Wildgame, Browning and Bushnell over the past 13-14 years and they all sucked to be honest Finally this one really seems to be excellent I bought 6 of them from TrailcamPro

    Tree identification Video - Black Walnut

    Hi Pete, I love your videos! Do you have any videos on identifying common NY brush, shrubs, understory plants, especially as they relate to edibles for wildlife including deer? Many thanks, Chris

  13. I hear ya....I'm glad that others can enjoy these lures like I did, although many of them are still brand new and never touched the water! It's a sad and happy transition for me over the past few years, from a life of trolling since I was 8 or 9 to a life of land stewardship, food plots, and property management on my "new" property I bought from my Uncle over the past year. Although the land has been in our family for almost 40 years, now that it's mine it needs my time and effort more than ever before Tight lines and happy hunting! Chris
