  1. Yesss, i will have fond memories of my first deer forever. Congratulations to him! Cant wait to get my 3 week old daughter out here with me!
  2. Beautiful opening day! My 8mm Mauser barked at about 7:30 this morning in 8N! He was in a line of bucks including two spikes and a decent 8 pointer who hung around and sniffed his dead buddy for a half hour after the shot! Super fun!
  3. Sweet buck, love those brow tines, and nice post office bin lol
  4. No need to downplay the size of a buck, its all relative and if you weren't excited about shooting it, then you wouldn't have shot it! Beautiful buck as far as I can see, will be interested to hear about what may have caused his baldness!
  5. Congratulations on the beautiful buck and the addition to your family! I also hunt 8N in Honeoye! Been seeing more and more mature deer the past few years there. I think people are finally allowing spikes and forkies to walk so that we may all have an opportunity to arrow big mature bucks! Love it!
  6. Thanks yeah he didnt make it far thats for sure!
  7. On the topic of ozone scent eliminators, in lieu of the very very expensive scentcrusher system, i use the scentpurge 50 (link below) in a heavy duty sterilite bin and it works great for less than $50! http://www.eders.com/whitetailr-scentpurge-odor-eliminator-50.html?&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI35D43Jzh1gIVVQOGCh05zQ6FEAQYASABEgJ7aPD_BwE
  8. Thanks for the heads up! Just entered!
  9. Dad and I tagged out opening day of archery this year! Been watching both bucks all summer!
  10. Thanks yeah we were both so excited and I have been on a missing streak in the past couple of years... bull elk, big 8 point, even bigger 8 point, and probably several others that i am forgetting. It is also special since my first child is due to be born very very soon so my time will be limited in the stand. Good to get the pressure off and just sit back and enjoy the ride! My parents may also be selling the property before next years season as well so its nice to get in another good final season there.
  11. My dad and I both got lucky within the first hour of opening day on the family property in Honeoye NY, unit 8N. My first buck with a bow and one of my dad's largest archery bucks! Been watching his buck on our trail cams all summer, very cool to see it come together and lay hands on the one we have been drooling over!
  12. Two matching sets and a few raghorn 3 points a few days ago before the snow!
  13. Thanks for the replies everybody, talking with the rest of the group now to get our act together and decide what we want to do!
  14. Charter/Guide Suggestions for Summer Salmon Trip Hi everyone, So my aunt would like to treat some of our family to a salmon fishing charter this summer. Hoping for a little advice from you experts about best time of year to shoot for and maybe some possible suggestions for a professional guide that could handle a party of 5-6 people. We are centered around Syracuse NY but are willing to travel a bit if need be to get to the best guides/fishing opportunities. Thanks ahead of time for any help!
  15. Will fleas stick to 14 lb leadcore?
