    Hell of a morning!

    Been waiting for Saturday to come all week. With Sonia on the ground and enough melt to make a walkable crust, couldnt have been better. Got this blackish big female about 15-20 minutes in. Saw her flanking the area at about 200 yards. Had a rodent distress playing but, she wasn’t having it. I waiting til she ducked into a stand of pines across the field and hit the pup distress. She came across the field like a shot and dropped her at 50 yards right next to the caller. Bonus as I was walking out to my truck, a fox came across the field and I made my best shot ever dropping the fox at 238 yard

    Recurve doe down.

    Really wanted to accomplish a recurve kill and was able to make a great shot on this doe Saturday. Last one for the freezer.

  4. I had a nice season this year. I saw lots of deer, unfortunately never got a shot at a big buck (becoming more selective as I age). Shot an 8 with shotgun during 6 day. I went out for meat tonight. Nice end to the season. Time to ice fish.

  5. Hey all! Been away for a while. Had 4 back surgery’s and had me laid out for a while. Did get out in the middle of them and downed a yote but, between physical therapy, trying to run a business, and doping up heavy to sleep, I’ve only been on Facebook to read about what’s going on in the political climate and crashing out. Have 2 more surgeries to go and should be good. Don’t get old boys, don’t get old...

    Ice fishing today

    Spent the day ice fishing a private lake local to me today. Didn't kill them, but caught some big fish. Three perch were 14 inches, bass & pickerel. Ate like kings...venison stew, brats, etc

  8. Well started this project in January of 2020 and just moved my mounts in today. It was a fun project with some challenges that I learned from along the way. Look forward to sharing drinks with friends and family and sharing stories too. Of all the trophies I have in this room my favorite is the picture my father put together of us on spring gobbler in PA when we doubled. It sits right above my work desk so I can see it often!

    One for my Uncle

    Getting close to the end of season and my uncle that fishes with me needs some more venison. He hasn't been able to hunt in years so I supply him with it. So I left to go to my spot fairly early as we had a hard west wind. Needed extra time to go in and pull my stand and move 100 yards over for the wind. As I was walking in I could see 2 deer at the bait. Seen them well before they ever seen me. Got pictures of them looking at me on the cell camera as I was walking in. Not allowed to shoot from the ground as this is a management park hunt. Elevated in a stand only. So I kept walk as it

    He is home

    My Muzzy buck arrived home today and is resting in his temporary place. The hair slipped on his cape so he is Euro for now. However, with @JerseyJaysTaxidermy help I already have a replacement cape and he will be mounted soon. This deer dwarfs in mass all of my previous deer

  11. Do you hunt upstate NY. Up until last year I went every year I was able, this was my best buck shot in Oxford NY at the very top of a mountain which was private property. Three Army friends got together every year, we always managed to take at least 1 deer per year between the three of us, My biggest was this nice 8 pointer that was big bodied with an exceptionally thick rack. We had a lot of great times there hunting, eating, drinking and remembering the old days and friends gone.

  13. It was 50 years ago today in the Federal Building in Newark NJ that I raised my right and swore my oath of allegiance to the US ARMY. It was in direct response to a personal letter I got from the President of the United States to join the army for two years and be a man. That day started a journey for me that led to 39 years of Military and Federal service to this great country. At the time I was angry and confused as to why me, when all the rich kids got deferred for college or other BS and all the poor kids had to go and serve. That' s service became my life and still is, and all I coul

    Good guy alert

    Or should I say great guy alert.... Electric10162 I made a thread looking for an Oneida Eagle bow a couple days ago, interested in doing some instinctive bowfishing. Many thanks to the guys that replied, electric10162 aka Andy sent me a pm with pics of one we had. After some brief texts back and forth we hooked up at his place of business. After chatting for awhile Andy just gave me his screaming eagle free of charge. Even after I asked what I could at least give him for it at minimum he replied no just take it and have fun Great guy and fellow hunter. Great meeting you and I owe you one And

    A little humor....

    A sexually active woman tells her plastic surgeon that she wanted her vaginal lips reduced in size because they had become too loose and floppy. Out of embarrassment she insisted that the surgery be kept a secret and the surgeon agreed. Awakening from the anesthesia after the surgery, she found 3 roses carefully placed beside her on the bed. Outraged, she immediately calls in the doctor. "I thought I asked you not to tell anyone about my operation!" The surgeon told her he had carried out her wish for confidentiality, and that the first rose was from me: "I felt sad because you wen

  19. All I can say is wow, what a trip! Solid few days of hunting in some crazy cold and extreme winds. We saw tens of thousands of ducks, just one highway flock after another. I have never experienced anything like it in my life. Can’t wait for next year. Nothing like being able to sleep out on an island to wake up and duck hunt almost immediately. Great experience and even greater memories! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. This morning I went out in that crazy a$$ wind and cold. Saw 10 deer but no antlers on any. Even though it was really cold I watched those deer browes within 30 yards of the bait but never came in. Good morning seeing that many. Afternoon hunt I head back to the same tree. Didn't see a deer till 4pm when I watched 9 deer all antlerless feed from the same direction as the ones in the morning but this time the came in for after corn snack. They hung around for 40 minutes before heading out opposite way they came in. Little bit after 5pm I see movement to my left and instantly saw it was

  21. Got up at 3:45am this morning and made the trip back to the homeland in Wayne county PA. Met up with my old friends and got to fishing. Couldn’t keep em off the jigs (4guys caught over 100 fish). Some nice fat panfish were kept for a fish fry. Caught 3 largemouth and a pickerel on tipups but nothing to write home about. All in all a great day.

    Just home from Coues hunts

    I just spent the last three weeks away. one week in Arizona two weeks in Mexico. The Arizona trip was with my friend and bow hunting legend Bob Ameen, one of the most respected and successful bow hunters in the world. We drove his Polaris 15 miles into the mountains then hiked into his tent camp. Bobs been doing this for 15 years or so. He leaves all his stands in as well as the camp. In 15 years he’s only seen one other hunter. Mountain lions were everywhere which has really brought the deer numbers down so we were fortunate to both take bucks... Bob’s was a dandy 4 x 4 t

  34. Goose hunting in the AP has officially came to an end. We started the season off in upstate NY with a few amazing hunts. We continued from there heading back to NJ and NY a few more times before the thirty day season in NJ kicked off. Our group shot 3 bands this season, The furthest being from Kangirsuk, Quebec(1,200 miles). I was able to take a few first time hunters and see the excitement after they shot their first goose. Along with the seasoned veterans who never hunted in my area. All in all we ended the season with a total of 419 geese, 15 snows, a few ducks and stories that will

  35. With Jay out of the picture Rusty said he would be willing to venture south of route 80. Like I mentioned in his post, I have plenty of ash trees that need to be cut before the borers kill them all. More then enough to keep everybody warm next season. I also have a 100 yard 3D range with something like 20 targets of all shapes and sizes. and once the cutting and shooting are done, a nice fire pit to enjoy some cold beer and red meat on the grill. Here is a shot or 2 of the bow range. I was thinking March 20th but I’m open. Chime in and let me know what you think. I

  36. Pre-season, August specifically, I was seeing some good bucks in a summer bachelor group. Those bucks seemed to have disappeared after late Sept. The only nice buck I saw during the season was this 3.5yo 6-point. In the pic here, he's missing a brow tine. I almost got him chasing a doe during the rut. The first time I tried to stop him he didn't hear me...the second time he did and stopped but with obstructions in the way, so I didn't shoot. He was so rutted up, I could smell him from 20 yards away and his stink lingered in the area. He had a small U-shaped range from what I could tell an

  37. The Weight Loss Program A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program. The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me." Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing

  38. My buddy and I took a walk today to check our late season plots as I had seen bucks dropping recently . We found 2 which happened to be a matched set . One in each of our 1/2 acre turnip and radish plots . There digging deep to try and get at them . Still a lot of snow out there .

  39. I had a fun season. Never got to shoot my target buck but i had opportunity at quite a few mature bucks holding out. I did put in more all day sits in one season then ever which was extremely satisfying. Killed three NJ bucks this year in regular bow season, muzzy hunt (145” 8pt) and gun season (125” 8pt). Already looking forward to next season!

  41. Made a quick run up to the Adks to snow shoe into my club cabin for 2 nights. Temps dropped to -15 but aside from that the weather was beautiful. Sunny and clear. Breaking trail the 3 miles in on 25 inches of powder was no easy task. Let alone with a full pack and rifle. We were exhausted. Got a fire going in the wood stove, broke out the knob creek and steaks and the body began to heal. I love it up there. We did some shooting, smoked cigars, and got a classic winter snow fire cranking. Hiking out this morning on our already packed trail was a dream.

    Got a late start today and didn’t get a bite for 2.5 hours but then someone flipped the light switch and I was chasing flags, ended up landing 5 pickerel, had 2 snap the line and pulled the hook on a couple, it really felt great to get on hard water this weekend

    New Deer Rifle!

    Persistence pays off in a nice way. After running my "WTB Remington 760/7600 Carbine" Want-AD in the classified section of this Forum for a couple of months. And constantly refreshing it every 3-4 days, to keep the Post active, I purchased this beautiful 7600 Carbine. This is a very early production 7600 rifle. Pre-Freedom Group. Remington did not produce any 7600 Carbines from 1980-85. Based on the Serial # and the "White Line Spacers"on the stock, this rifle has a build date somewhere in the 1987-88 range. Remington discontinued the "White Line Spacers" sometime around 1989. Sometime in thi

    Return of "horsehead"

    I had reported on the thread about winter kills, that right after the big 35+++" storm, one of my favorite all-time deer vanished. A very old, fat, and dry doe that was coming earlier and earlier to the winter food pantry to beat rush hour and all the annoying bucks - I have no idea how old she is but started noticing her head and very fat jowls over the past several years. Because she is barren and does not have fawns, she never stomps or snorts -which is cool. I really thought given her age and the conditions, she was the first coyote casualty because she had gone missing for 11 days. 2/
