  1. Very we'll put. Your posts definitely lit a flame under my ass and got me going last year. I'm looking forward to taking everything I learned from talking to you and what I learned actually fishing last year and improve my catch rates big time. Thank you!

  2. One thing I really think the DEC does have to do is take a good hard look at there WMU's. I think some of them need to be reworked and made into new ones. Some WMU's encompass areas of high deer density and low deer densitys yet they are managed the same. Take for instance 8N for years now this unit has been high, high for doe tags and that's right on for areas of it like the honeoye area and down but a good portion if not all of the Candice and hemlock state lands are in there unit too. Those areas do not have nearly the deer populations as there is in honeoye and south of honeoye yet they are managed the same. I think we could find many more units that have this same problem. Whether it's making units smaller or just reworking where the borders are something has to be done. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I am ALL about shooting big bucks but antler restrictions are absolutely NOT the awnser!!! All antler restrictions do is select superior genetics to get shot first. Year and a half 8pts will be targeted bc they meet the criteria when in fact those are the bucks that need to be passed! What needs to happen is we need a shorter gun season and honestly I would be ok with 1 buck tag (I know I'm in the minority on that one). Most importantly we need educated hunters!! We need hunters who are willing to learn to do there best at aging deer and have the ability to pass those 1.5 year and 2.5s even if it's a nice 8pt. I think 3.5 is a good goal for a seasoned hunter if not 4.5. Antler restrictions will not have the effect people think it will. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. My buck on opening day this year did 😉. A lot of my spots are areas where deer can come from any direction. How am I supposed to know what thicket or corn field a bucks going to come from? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. I'm with everyone on scent control and wind but I feel there are a few days where it's in your best interest to throw caution to the wind and just go for it in your best stand no matter the wind. Opening day of bow being one. The very first bitter cold/gloomy day in November and opening day of gun. Also I have stands that deer can come from any direction so I feel like you just have to hunt them no matter the wind when the timing is right. I don't know.....just my opinion. 95% of the time I play the wind first and for most. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
