    Bear meat

    just remember that a bear is the biggest member of the raccoon family. you are just gonna eat a big raccoon. nasty if you think about it like that.
  2. thanks for all the great comments on this deer. even though its not the biggest one, i believe it maybe the most special, taking over from the 186" 12pt from illinois. its about the history of that stand and the person who showed it to me. miss you chris masaro. you died well before your time, 31 short years. miss you bud. this was your deer!
  3. congrats- putting it on the wall? i have shot deer off the can before but i think that any can style doe bleat isn't loud enough most of the time. lohman doe bleat for me nowdays. nice job again.
  4. some nice ones are starting to get shot- nice deer.

    Bear meat

    horrible- shot a big one 3 years ago with the bow and gave it all away. i have heard one person say they liked it, but not me. i made stews, steaks and sausage and it was all the worst food i have ever tasted. this is part of the reason that i never will shoot another bear. mine was 430lbs and maybe that made it taste bad since it was older but i would rather eat a german shepard and i love dogs. horrible meat. would rather eat road killed raccoon on a hot july day then eat one more bite of bear meat.
  6. its a good scope, check to make sure the mounting rings or screws are fully tightened down. has happened to me before. i very much doubt its the scope.
  7. its way bigger than my first with a bow- 14 years old when i took a button buck. it was the first shot that i had and i took it. last button i have taken also. congrats on recovering the deer. if you shoot enough of them sometimes the outcome isn't as good as yours. great job. DEER ON THE GROUND!!!!!!! yeah boy!!
  8. the rut is on boys! call in sick. yesterday i had a 6 point running around the back field behind my house @ 12:30. my backyard is west henrietta road. i consider suburban bucks to be the most noctural of all deer and if they are running around @ noon, the rut has begun!
  9. it sounds like it didn't work out as planned- alittle more survival than fishing it seems. this weekend ended up being good for me as i took a great deer that is in the hunting section on this website under i got lucky. its unfournate about the weather for you- but you made it home and ther is always next time. hopefully i will see you before the end of the season!
  10. was supposed to go musky fishing but with certain problems that came up i ended up going out hunting instead. best deer that i have seen so far this year and ended up shooting him at 3:45 pm after getting in the stand @ 3pm. seemed early to me but they have started to move lately. got in the stand, got settled, rattled & grunted- a minute later this one came in with a six- pointer in the lead and i shot him @ just over 20 yards. second best NY deer for me with the bow. its funny how sometimes it all comes together and other times it seems like it all falls apart. for me it mostly falls apart. i have seen alot of rut activity in the last week in the # of rubs and scrape activity. i was pretty happy with him and am happy to add him to my collection on the wall! best blood trail i have ever seen, could see it 20 feet ahead of me- the kind that you can walk fast and follow! most of all i am happy with the deer and that i called him right in and made a good shot. so far this year 34 hours on stand! i shot this deer from good friend of mines stand who passed in late april of this year to make it even more memorable. i am 100% sure that if he was still with us it would be him in the pic and not me. i bet he is proud of me looking down. thanks for reading and good luck to everyone that will go out. Henrietta has been good to me again. 9 pointer on the ground!
  11. soon we will see pics of a mountain lion with a pig in its mouth on a trailcam camera huh? shoot them all for bacon!
  12. nitro- won't that pfd make you too bouyant in case you have to dive in and have to swim down that monster and wrestle it back to your boat? i mean- how hard-core are we?
  13. thanks chad. looks like i will be there on friday since the harbor water is still warm. you got me excited!
  14. i hunt hickory hill north of bath, own 17 acres - are we on the same hill? have seen 3 bear down there on the top of the ridges. what did you miss a shot @? i have heard tons of rumors about the big cats running around down there. have you seen any or have any stories to tell? i heard a few years back that one was hit on rt. 17 and it had a radio collar on it. maybe just stories but what have u heard? i know a neighbor of my grandfathers in southern illinois shot one 2 years back deer hunting.
  15. yeah boy. did way better than me. 19 hours in stand- no shots, a couple seen.
  16. old man- are you happy with that pfd you were wearing in the pic? i am looking for some sort of floation and i think i am leaning towards something similar.
  17. i have done the musky/deer thing before but it has been years. a good friend of mine and i were talking last year about what we were gonna have for diner and he said surf and turf. i say wow- your living it up steak and lobster huh. he responds, no deer steak and fried perch, the poor mans surf and turf. P.S. i am worse at musky fishing than the buffalo bills are at winning- not good.
  18. should have left the boat at home but i took it out and have nothing to show for it. hunting in blizzard conditions saturday- back home now.
  19. looking forward to a great weekend! leaving work early friday to go fish waneta and then off to camp 15 miles away in bath to sleep and wake up to go hunting to start off archery season. hopefully i will get a musky and a deer this weekend. I'll call it the sportsmans double if i can pull it off. have a good weekend boys! looking for snow down there this weekend. burrrrrrrr! byw i will troll only, last time burning those big blades for hours got me sore, what a baby i am.
  20. he is dead- he does have some sons that people have high hopes for. we will have to wait and see.
  21. wishing i was out. getting ready for bowhunting as well. you'll get your fatty sooner or later.
  22. good for you, i hope to get my little guy on some jumbos in a few years also. good father!
  23. i have heard that its been great fishing for perch anywhere on the lake for the last 2 seasons and alot came out of the lake last winter also. nice job. tasty little boogers aren't they?
  24. nitro- those are the lures i used for blue fish in N.C. it was the only lure that the faster you worked it the better it worked. i never even thought of fishing waldos w/ them but i can see the idea. heavy little things they are. i have like 10 left over and they just hang on a wall now.
