  1. Is your son really a little guy or is that an extra large doe? It looks huge!
  2. that must have been especially nice to get so late in regular season.
  3. I would second that. I saw this article by Jay Gregory well known tv hunter a while back. https://www.outdoorhub.com/news/2017/01/06/must-see-video-bowhuntertv-host-jay-gregory-talks-day-shot-intentionally-poacher/
  4. Sure is a big 6 pt. Wonder if he was always going to be a 6 or would he have turned into an 8 or 10 in another couple years?
  5. Todd is the guy to go to. He has done three for me in the last year and he does great job! would not go anywhere else, unless he stopped doing them. 585-880-4638 is number to call.
  6. Congratulations to successful opening day hunters! There are some dream bucks there!
  7. My buddy got a beauty yesterday down in 9Y on his afternoon hunt.
  8. When the deer is not found, is that it for the hunters hunt? I know a lot of places have an "if you draw blood" policy. The deer I shot on Sat with a rage had very little blood trail because he was bleeding internal from a double lung pass through. I did not have to worry about a blood trail though because I saw him drop within sight. That was fourth deer shot with a rage hyperdermic and never had to track. My buddy shot this one yesterday with a rage. No tracking needed.
  9. Just curious. Are they finding any of the deer on deer track calls? Most of them or very few of them?
  10. Just measured it and it was 17 1/2. Far cry from 20 but I will take him
  11. He is a dandy! He looks like pope and young and NY big buck club for sure.
  12. Was 14 degrees in 9Y today at:5:30 this morming. Ground had been soaked and now it had frozen. I was sure I would never see a deer because every step I took walking to my stand sounded like it would carry a 1/4 mile. I convinced myself that since I had gotten up and made it this far to get my stand as quickly as I could. I got there and it was still dark. As soon as it got light enough to see, I saw deer running in the field past the edge of the woods. This was the one time I forgot my binoculars and everything was at least 200 yards out. I told myself a buck would have his head to the ground sniffing and not eating like the does, so I thought I saw a couple bucks. At 6:55 I see a deer hugging the treeline and it stops at corner of field closest to me. Another deer from middle of field runs towards it. So I thought first deer might be a doe and a buck was coming to check it out. When the second deer got close to the first one he started to posture up. I said hah that first deer must be a buck. They started to spar lightly and I thought I was going to see my first buck fight. The second deer decided to head back the way he came and the first one stayed in the wood line and started walking to in my direction. I had already ranged that corner of the woods and field at 45 yards and this buck was staying in the woods and coming closer quickly. I picked him up in scope of my crossbow and when he got broadside at 20 yards. I sent a rage hyperdermic at spot right behind his shoulder. he jumped and ran out into field and back towards the woods. It was open enough that I saw him fall and start kicking in the air. 7:05 and I had my biggest buck ever down. I have seen bigger but buck fever has gotten the best of me til now. My stand was in the tallest of these pines. Landowner had a trail cam picture of him and another one about the same size but with bigger brows.
  13. I like Primos because they are so easy to set and are not expensive. They came out with one that is under $50. I bought one and it takes decent day and night pics and also has movie mode. No frills but they are less that $50. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=primos+bullet+proof+2&_sacat=0&_sop=15. That price is only on ebay. Other places that are more than $50. The model is Primos bullet proof 2.
  14. if you can do a double overhand loop of the leadcore and thread the mono through, it is even tighter.
  15. http://www.mininggazette.com/news/2019/03/latest-isle-royale-wolf-delivery-may-be-last-this-winter/ The smart thing to do would be to establish a lottery hunt. Money would come in from tags and the moose population would easily be kept at a manageable level. It costs many thousands to airlift wolves. No guarantee the airlift wolves will even hunt the moose.
  16. Where is Swans and what is their number? Thanks
  17. Thanks to everyone who recommended Todd. I took two deer to him on Sat and he had them done within four hours and the breakfast sausage he made is some of the best I ever had. He did a great job and had a very fair price!
  18. Thanks guys. Definitely encouraging. This buck was on my trail cam under my stand. I hope he comes by
  19. Weatherman is talking about the wind gusting more than 40 mph Sat. Has anyone had success with winds that high? Been waiting all week for weekend and high winds and snow are forecast. Will deer move in that?
