  1. I've been eyeing them Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  2. I kind of agree but if there is one thing NY does right it is public access. We have some incredible tracts of land available to hunt and some great fishing available from state launches to stream access. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  3. This is how I grew up and am on a mission to make sure my kids do too. My boy is 7 and is on his 5th trapping line starting wensday. Has been fishing since he could walk. For me it's a lifestyle...an awesome one. My best friend doesn't hint trap or fish really and part of my push for a bigger boat was the ability to take both our family's out and enjoy the great outdoors NY has to offer. We went out twice this season with our kids and I think I have him hooked. He is researching boat set ups with me and hopes to help me set it up for spring. Anything I can do to help get some kids off the couch and realize what the outdoors has to offer is a win in my book. There's a guy named Robby Gilbert who runs a trapping tv show and his motto is "keeping the tradition alive" it really is as simple as that. Who's going to care in 30 or 40 years what happens to our lakes or woods? Who's gonna make sure the Dec keeps pushing to make the outdoors a better place. If we don't encourage our kids to be outside the future will be lost the tradition will end. Not good Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

  6. Ahh blowback was another reason I had considered changing.....thanks paul.....still may consider it Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  7. As a younger guy I notice many my age don't fish hunt or trap. Probably due to growing up with computers and video games instead of being outdoors. I would imagine that has more of an impact than the lifetime holders. IMO Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  8. The charter I went on with Jim this was one thing I asked him about. There is no hum with braid. Also easier to terminate. There was a few other points he made that hopefully I remember and can post but those were 2 that stuck out to me Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  9. I really like my climber I have it set up with the third hand straps and bow holder and a rucksack frame to carry it...really a sweet rig this was my own fault for trying to adjust while in the tree and dropping the pin Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

  11. Yea I learned that lesson won't be doing that again it took me up till last year to finally put a harness on now I always wear it...humbleing experience dangling there Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  12. Well guys crazy morning so far.... I hunt out of a climber for archery season have been for a few years now.....well this am I got cocky and tried to adjust the bottom if the stand while I was in it....really bad choice ended up dripping the pin and bottom of stand fell out from under me. Luckily I keep some trapping wire in my pack and after a hr and half of trying to get stand back together I finally got a piece if wife thru the cable and slowly climb down. About 5 foot from the ground the wire broke and I jumped down....dumb choice and luckily I didn't get hurt. Always where your harness and don't get cocky in a stand.

  13. Thanks guys for being willing to share your info and teaching us. Without you guys the experience wouldn't be nearly as successful. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  14. You guys shorten the learning curve by years. And i was glad to finally meet you Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  15. So today was my last trip of the season fishing the LOU all. Although we had a bad fishing day it was still a success meeting many of the guys who have helped me (and others) learn this great sport. Many of you have reached out to me on questions and concerns I have posted invited me on your boats and showed me the ropes. I use it all every time I go out. You all helped me put f8sh over the rail pretty steady. So all that being said I just wanted to thank you all and I look forward to seeing you all next year hopefully starting on some spring browns. THANK YOU ALL Just some pics from this season. Some on my boat some on other members here...was a awesome season. Can't wait for next year....time to chase some fur tho Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
