  1. My daughter will enjoy her first afternoon of bow hunting tomorrow. She has worked hard to become proficient (deadly) with her bow. She will be thrilled to kill a doe tomorrow or whenever it happens this fall but for her not to be able to fill her buck tag if the right situation arose doesn't make sense to me. Victim of zip code.

  2. I'm a "trophy hunter" that has only shot 1 "big" buck in my life. I have no issue with what a man considers a shooter. That's why you have tags. My "big" buck would be passed by a lot of hunters. I live in 8c where any doe killed on a 8c tag is replaced with a bonus tag. Between me and my kids we take a lot of does for not just our table but for friends as well every year. Will someone please explain to me why I , who hasn't killed a buck in 4 years because I don't need the meat but would like to take what I consider a great deer, is getting c#%k blocked by the DEC.

  3. It happened and that's all I'll comment on it

    I'll comment. Right or wrong it has to be a tough call. Wonder how many hunters will be "poachers" as a result of the new regs. I still think it's funky as no fewer buck tags have been issued, they just took away some of the most enjoyable periods to be in the woods. If I could choose to give up the entire gun season to get back all of bow and that last week of muzzleloader I would do it in a second.

  4. Whaler, Braddocks is where I kayak out of every week, I have never heard of them doing rentals, but am very intrigued. Do you know what kind of boats they rent out? And prices? Or should I just give them a ring.

    aluminium vhulls with small outboards.  See Bob in the bait shop.  He has two.

  5. That's what they said at Walmart in Greece. I still don't believe it. I live in 8c and up till now they have replaced any verified 8c doe kill with a bonus tag for as long as I've lived here. Going to the town hall for my tags as well as my daughter on Wednesday. Last year the roads around 8c had more deer/auto hits per mile than any other dmu. Curious to see if it's really the deal.

  6. Pretty cool stuff. Always a couple of special fish caught every year that we hear about on this site. That is definitely one of those fish, the kind you think about at night when you can't sleep or after days or weeks of tough fishing. Great job, would love to hear the story of the catch as well as what the angler chose to do with the fish.

    Gambler, how old would that fish be?

    I'm saying 50.

  7. Seeing a lot around. Normally don't target them in the early season but as a result of the new deer regs in the area I hunt I think I'm going to hit it hard early.

  8. Pretty sure 8c dmp's are still renewed upon harvest confirmation at Avon. If so I'm going to help out a lot of friends in the first two weeks.
