  1. If you go to the link provided above - www.fingerlakesanglingzone.com - you can go to reports and look back through years of reports - the majority of which are on Cayuga. John (the guide) is extremely knowledgeable on all finger lakes fishing. Check out some of his reports from July timeframe of previous years to get an idea of areas/depths that he was fishing at in the past.
  2. Rob, I saw on a Facebook Trail Camera page that someone bought some "air tags" and put one inside of each of their cameras. I don't know much about them, but the guy stated that if one of the cameras was stolen, he would be able to trace the location with his phone as long as the thief had something with bluetooth near the stolen camera. He claims he tried it out with his son and it worked, so maybe it would be something to look into, just a thought. It sucks that you and so many others have to deal with tresspassers and camera thieves so often during gun season.
  3. Well I cut it close, but I'm all tagged out for the year. 9 point with bow, two big doe and a 10 point with rifle. Congratulations to everyone else that has harvested one, and good luck to everyone during the late season! Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll check that one out as well! Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I’m looking to purchase a muzzleloader for next years season, and after reviewing some of the content on Legacy’s thread over the last few years, I’m kind of leaning towards the CVA Accura LR-X. I’d like to be able to shoot out to 250 – 300 yards, so I was leaning towards the .45 cal. instead of the .50 cal. for two reasons. From what I read online the .45 has a faster twist rate (1:22” instead of 1:28”), and should also have less drop and better trajectory than the .50 cal. Just looking for some advice on whether this is a good route to go? Chromeslayer also recommended the possibility of having a CVA Scout V2 45-70 converted to a muzzleloader, but I don’t think I want to invest quite that much. Also looking for a recommendation on a decent MOA scope that would be best for that muzzleloader in order to shoot 100-250 yards without breaking the bank too bad.
  6. This piebald hangs out near my work. He knows where he's safe, and it's quite obvious that he eats well too! Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thanks guys, now the countdown begins until gun season so I can get a chance at one of these two Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Finally connected with a buck yesterday morning. Although he isn't the biggest buck, there were several factors that lead to me deciding to take the shot. I took Monday and Tuesday off from work to hunt, and i told my oldest son (7 years old) that if i happened to kill a buck in the morning either of those days, i would pull him out of school to help track it. Between that, limited time to hunt the rest of bow season, and the fact that i had my new Tactacam Solo camera on my bow, i decided i was going to let an arrow fly. I was sitting along the edge of a corn field that was partially chopped the day before by my father-in-law. At about 7:30, he came wandering through along the edge of the corn field. I quickly turned my Tactacam on as i saw him approaching, and drew back as he crossed behind some pine branches. I stopped him broadside at 12 yards and made a good shot on him. He turned 90° and ran down through the corn field about 50 yards before staggering and falling over. After that i kept my promise and got my oldest son out of school and him and my 4 year old helped me "track" it. Their excitement and reaction after finding the buck just reaffirmed my decision to take him was the right one! As others have said on here, not my biggest bow buck, but one of the most memorable ones. The tactacam video turned out awesome, but the file is too large to load.
  9. Looking for places within 30-45 minutes of Corning, NY that will winterize a boat (Tracker Targa V-18). We have a place to store it for the winter, but would like someone to winterize it and go over whatever the standard post-season checklist is. Thanks! Sean
  10. So sorry for your loss, Garry.
  11. Chose the wrong stand the other day. First daylight picture of him and I was sitting a few hundred yards across the gully. Sent from my SM-G965U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Sat last night for a few hours to try to fill a few nuisance permit for my in-laws farm. I didn't get anything, but it was an exciting hunt anyways! I saw a flock of about 16 turkeys, had three fawns bed down in front of me at different times, and then had this piebald buck come strolling through with another small buck. I took a couple of great videos of him, and even have him sparring with the other buck for a few seconds, but i'm not sure how to upload videos, so this screenshot will have to do! It was a very cool experience, first time i've seen one from the stand, and he walked by at 20 yards.
  13. I am looking to purchase a new crossbow, but there are so many options out there now that i'm not sure what to get. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good, quiet crossbow under $750? Thanks, Sean
  14. Thanks, guys! Les - I won't be fishing the derby this weekend, I will actually be out of town...maybe next year!
  15. Did a morning jigging trip out of Dean's yesterday with my dad and brother. Launched at 5:30am, and had the first laker in the boat by 5:45am. Thought it was going to be good bite, but it turned out to be a bit slow with some decent wind at times which made it tough to stay where we wanted to. We did manage 5 lakers and two bows in the 4 hours that we were there. Best fish of the day was my 32" laker, that was a fun fight!
  16. I saw a report last week from a charter that an algae bloom was starting to happen on Cayuga. Just wondering if anyone has a recent report out of Dean's Cove that could say whether the algae bloom is still happening, or how good/bad it is? Thanks!! Sean
  17. Hi Mike, Do you happen to have any more 1oz or 3/4oz jig heads for sale? I would love to buy some from you if you've got any more available! Thanks, Sean
  18. Try posting in the "Bass Fishing" thread....on the homepage under "Warm Water Fishery". Most of the posts in the "Finger Lakes" thread are trout/salmon related. I would guess with the hot temps we've been having lately that the bass have probably moved into slightly deeper water to avoid the sunlight and warmer water. Try throwing deep diving lures over 15-20 fow or jigs. If you are fishing in shallower, throw under docks, lily pads, or anything else that might provide shade for the fish.
  19. Well, one of the neighbors shot the buck I had been targeting this year. I guess it's time to move on and find a different one! Sent from my SM-A505U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Good luck to everyone tomorrow, shoot straight and stay safe!! Sent from my SM-A505U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Not seeing much so far this morning. Thinking about getting down and eating an early lunch on a log to see if it turns my luck around! Sent from my SM-A505U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Looking at your arrow and a slightly quartering away shot, i would say you hit just behind the shoulder with the entry, and hit the opposite shoulder blade (and as he took off he broke the arrow off with his shoulder on the entry side). Looks like you got lung, and even better the arrow was still in there doing damage. I agree that he's dead, but take your time!
  23. Congrats Rob, nice buck! Sent from my SM-A505U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. I'm sure there are a number of people on here that would be willing to cover the stand for you!
