  1. Expansion is dependent on bullet velocity. There's no comparison of a muzzle bullet and let's say a .270. Not sure how far your shot was, but at 200 yards, the muzzleloader's velocity is probably in the 1200-1400 fps range

  4. Another great season in the books. Saw a tremendous number of bucks this year and was able to harvest one in the top five on my property along with a nice doe on the gun opener. Archery season was incredible after seeing one of the biggest deer in the flesh that I’ve ever seen in the woods. I shot lots of videos of doe and smaller guys beneath me which is always exciting. It was a year of wind wind and more wind, a nice classic November rut, and afternoon hunts that outpaced the mornings. It was great following along with everyone this year and learning things every day. Next up will be hanging more stands, planning a small hinge cut, food plot clearing and a new roof on my cabin porch. Merry Christmas to all of the LOU family Chris Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Great deer. You're blessed to be able to hunt that many days in a row. Savor every minute as it's one less year to hunt until it's all over Thanks for sharing
  6. You're missing the entire point. Put some blaze orange on....no excuses
  7. Great post - I'm in the same boat. It's funny how the drive goes down the tubes once you harvest a buck. That being said, it's a ton of fun to still get on stand and hunt with your camera and take some cool pics and video Good luck late season, Chris
  8. Great buck. Thanks for taking the time moderating this thread, too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Good points on the hunter density issue. The key is to hunt to your own objectives the best you can. I hunt very similarly to you - I have high standards to harvest a mature buck early on, but my standards do decline as the season winds down as my family values venison in the freezer. Will I harvest a spike, a young doe or a button buck - absolutely not, but a 1.5 year old six point on the last weekend of the season may be in my crosshairs. I am 100% against more DEC regs with antler restrictions simply because we are over regulated as it is. Do whatever you can to make your property the haven for deer by increasing cover, food, and as I mentioned low impact hunting and it can really make an incredible difference Good luck this year
  10. I disagree - I think you can do a lot to manage your land even if you have a small chunk. Is it easier to manage a 200 acre piece vs a 40 acre piece? Absolutely. However, with proper techniques at creating cover, food sources, and strategies of low impact hunting, you can still create a gold mine on even a small piece of land
  11. OK - yes I agree with that (full moon and they're out at 2 AM feeding or avoiding daytime predation) but I feel that it has zero effect on the rut.
  12. Not by me....I think moon phases and their effect on deer movement is a garbage man-made myth. Just my opinion Chris
  13. Great job Tomy - great buck and beautiful boat! I cannot believe how great the hunting has been so far this year Be safe, Chris
  14. Interestingly I broke off a small hemlock branch four feet above the ground about 20 yards from my stand in one of my shooting lanes. EVERY single deer walking by smelled my scent on the ground and where I touched the branch. Crazy how they can scent everything Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Guys/Gals - get into the woods if you can....rain, wind, sun or shine. Lots and lots of action the past few days. Every day multiple bucks from 1.5 to stud 3.5’s. Does galore. Had one at full draw but no shot. Play the wind, cover you scent and have a blast as it is game on right now Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Have you ever thought that one of these cityots worked his/her ass off, got an education And then decided to buy a piece of country paradise to build their dream home to be CLOSER to nature? Perhaps they too were disgusted with losing hunting opportunities so they put their money where their mouth was and bought their own land. This way their kids can play outside, the cityot can hunt, and maybe they can even be friends with the neighbors and let them enjoy their land too Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Care to clarify? What exactly is a cityot and why can't someone purchase roadside property? I must be missing something
  18. Kudos to your discipline and fortitude to continue searching resulting in a successful recovery of your harvest. You should be commended as I imagine many folks may not have given it that effort. Thanks for sharing, Chris
  19. You weren’t the only one! Makes me feel better that I wasn’t the only one skunked thus morning.....Monday/Tuesday following this front should be spectacular Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Great job - awesome story! You are doing it right if he was a buck you were targeting. Thx for sharing
  21. Superb video! Thx for sharing. Best part is him throwing the pin bones over the fence into his neighbor’s yard!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
