  1. Ditto. I always buy my “cold weather” boots a size bigger to allow room for thicker socks. I use a thin base layer sock. Attach Toasty Toes to the bottom of my feet, then a thicker wool sock. On extra cold days I also use the “boot blankets” right over my boots when I get to my stand. They are bulky but worth it. I use the method all the time and it works great.
  2. 3H, Livingston Manor going up either Thursday night or very early Friday, plan on bow hunting last day of season on Friday then rifle opener until Sunday night then heading back home to NJ.
  3. Selling my right handed Mathews Switchback - everything together to get you started: 26 inch draw length 50-60 pound draw weight (set at 58 right now) Copper John 3 pin fiber optic sight Rip Cord drop away rest Fuse stabilizer Kwikee Quiver 12 Beeman ICS Hunter 400 arrows with 100gr field tips (I only show 2 in the pics but are including a full dozen) One hard case to hold eveything plus extra accessories ....a few other accessories too: strings and cables from last replacement (I always save one set just in case of emergency during hunting season), limb savers string leeches, grim reaper broad heads Long story short - I bought a new bow but also switched hands- went Left handed due to eye dominance and some other factors.

  5. Hi, I wanted to pass something along to everyone that I find to be incredibly helpful. I am not one to usually plug products, but this I think is a game changer, at least for me it is... Like mostly everyone here bow hunting in cold weather is a challenge when the temperature drops. I always struggke with how to keep my bow hand warm and not affect my shot. I do not like wearing a glove on my bow hand as I prefer my grip to be directly on the bow. I found a product that I tried out this year and have to say, I find it work wonders. The bow mit by betterthehunt.com is awesome. It is a mitten that attaches to the bow with the stabilizer and straps around the riser to secure. It keeps the bow grip warm, your hand warm and can also accept a hand warmer should you choose to use it. in regards to my release hand, I started using a product I was introduced to years ago for golfing in cold weather. It is called a “pull up mitten”. Basically it is a mitten you pull onto your hand/arm and can pull it up to expose your hand and/or fingers. I find this incredibly useful as I still have my bare hands in contact with the bow and release but have easy access to warmth and comfort at the moment of truth when you need to make that shot count. Just my experience and what I have found that works for me. Maybe it can help you too! good luck and be safe
  6. Also, given the fact that it is already late in the season to be going to a new place I am trying to limit my options and keep it to just a few locations so I can try to do some low impact scouting with the climber and find a place that could be productive.
  7. Yes, I am aware. But I live closest to those and I heard many good things about them both.
  8. Unfortunately I just lost access to the property I was hunting for the past 6 years, and now will be taking the climber onto public land. I will be hunting the Monmouth county park system for the first time this year. Anyone Hunt it and have suggestions of Turkey swamp or manasquan? I am undecided on where to give it a go. I know they both hold deer, but am curious of others experience. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and good luck and be safe out there.
  9. I think if cwd continues to spread it could only be a matter of time for other states to start to implement similar changes...
  10. Anyone else see this.... http://www.foxnews.com/great-outdoors/2018/08/13/michigan-sets-new-deer-hunting-rules-to-keep-chronic-wasting-disease-from-spreading.html
