    Pocket Ranger APP

    Thanks 230....I'm really just interested in the FF part. Need to keep tabs on my 75 yr old brother and my 40 yr old daredevil son when we're up at the DWGNRA or Jenny Jump. Gonna try huntstand. bOb….ski
  2. Hunters and anglers should not consult or rely on the mobile app operated by Parks By Nature. The company is no longer affiliated with the Division of Fish and wildlife, and does not have up-to-date information. I never used the Pocket Ranger app for regulations but have used it for "Friend Finder" to see where my buddies are. Anyone use anything else to keep track of a hunting partner's location in the woods??

    Annual Kayak Trip

    As per the DWGNRA regulations it might have been a period of HIGH WATER: 1.10 The Delaware River is closed when conditions are determined to be unsafe. (a)(2) River Closures and Restrictions 2.1 Life jackets are mandatory during the period of high water, 8 to 15 feet at the Montague gauge for all individuals onboard vessels which are underway, on, or in the waters of the Delaware River, within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, are required to wear a Type I, II, III or V USCG approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD). The PFD must be the proper size for the individual wearing it, and it must be in good serviceable condition. 2.2 When water levels reach 15 feet or higher at the Montague Gauge there will be a mandatory closure of the river corridor.
  4. My (almost) 100% fool proof system for fooling their sight, hearing, and smell senses is done by sitting still downwind of my quarry and moving super slow when (and if) necessary. As Haskell said before....it's called hunting....not killing. bOb....ski

    Water gap camping??

    NJ State Park camping has a reservation system. I honestly doubt with such short notice there will be availability at Worthington. Place fills up like crazy on weekends. Spent MANY a night there......AND everyone is right...No alcohol allowed....if they "happen" to catch you with some they make you dump it out and issue you a summons. Don't ask me how I know. bOb....ski

    Climber Recommendation

    Thanks to all for your comments. It's been a long time since I've been "up a tree" hunting. The kids say I'm too old to even clean the gutters on my house...lol. My tree stand used to be a small metal one that attached to the tree with a chain. I used to carry my telephone pole climbing spikes in with me to get up and down. Now I just find a dead fall ON THE GROUND to hunt. That's why I asked for comments. The stand he's currently using is an OLD CHEAP NOISY HEAVY climber that he's had for more than 15 years. He is not one to hunt where everyone else is.....he goes in until he feels he's alone in the wilderness. I follow him half way (it's a fatherly thing), find a spot, hunt my heart out, and usually wait for him to return. I've settled on the Viper SD. Will be placing the order today. Once again....THANKS for ALL replies. bOb....ski
  15. Gonna get my son (40) a new climber for his Birthday. Looking at the Summit Viper SD. Weighs only 20 lbs and I'm sure it will be BETTER than what he is currently using. Any pros or cons would be appreciated. I've got a couple of weeks to get it. Thanks bOb....ski
