    Good luck to all NY rifle hunters!

    Heading up to my camp near Hornell to hunt for the last time this morning, the new owner takes over in 2019. A lot of great memories and deer killed over the years, but time to move on. Really hoping to end this chapter on a high note. May have to walk the gear in from the road to the shack we stay in, not sure how much snow is on the ground. Good luck to all!

    Need help identifying a trespasser

    Call Under Armour? Maybe the tattoo parlor remembers this guy?

    I've been stewing myself over this

    I hate to be "that guy", but none of this is ever going to change, unless you buy your own land or lease (with a signed contract). And then, you have a new set of headaches. Money talks. If I was a landowner with 4 acres and had guys squabbling over hunting permission, I'd boot them all out, just saying. If I was in your shoes, I would either try to work out a solution with the other hunter or move on. Hunting's supposed to be fun, not stressful.

    Outfitter tips?

    Usually you tip the guides, not the owner (unless he is both, and you feel he went above & beyond). That's pretty funny actually, guys going on a paid hunt, and then giving even more money away to sit in prime stands.

    Admit it...Who is addicted to it?

    I think it is fine, not sure what I would do differently. A lot less bickering than the other NJ site. And if you are gaining membership (most other hunting forums are dying), you must be doing something right. Keep up the good work. I do miss the drunk guy throwing the beer bottle emoji, any chance you could make that one available?

    Rage Mechanical Broadheads

    I understand shot placement, and have killed maybe 50/60 deer with an arrow or bolt over the years. The blood trail I didn't have to follow last night was what surprised me the most. It may be just luck or coincidence, there wasn't a huge entrance hole in or out when I butchered the deer this afternoon.

    Rage Mechanical Broadheads

    Honestly, I'm a lazy bow hunter. I hunt with a crossbow, don't scout much, and might put in 5 days a season. I never cared much for tuning in with fixed broadheads back when I used a compound bow, so I prefer "fly like a field-tip" broadheads. As the years passed and I lost a few deer, I made a conscious decision to only take what I consider to be slam-dunk shots. Slick Tricks seemed to do the job, but in the back of my mind was the nagging thought that they really didn't leave much room for error. This deer was double lunged, and when I found her she was in a heap 40 yards from where I hit her originally, bolt covered in blood and a blood trail anyone can follow, which isn't always the case with the fixed blade broadheads, I followed the blood trail in the dark, but obviously not much tracking. I guess the biggest surprise was how easy this was. I plan to butcher the deer this afternoon, I'll see what damage was done internally then.

    Don't You Love It When..........

    It used to annoy me, but I realized the people that say this are usually trying to make inane small talk, and really have no interest in hunting, outdoors, or killing anything for food. More often it's women that I work with that ask this question. I used to tell them "no, but I killed a couple", but I think they thought I was a psycho, so now I just ignore the question or say no, it's just easier, and I really don't want to hear what they did over the weekend with their lives. Obviously, they're sheltered from the reality of where their meat comes from, whether it's the woods or a farm/meat factory.

    Rage Mechanical Broadheads

    I am impressed! I bought a pack last year at Wallyworld, they were almost out of all broadheads, and I wanted a few for backup. Fast forward to yesterday, I thought I'd give them a try, connected on a mid-size doe that piled up 40 yards from the shot. Left a blood trail Stevie Wonder could have followed. I usually use Slick Tricks (or knockoffs), but I always wondered if they left a big enough hole going in or out. I won't go as far as saying I'm a "fan" yet, but my eyes are definitely more open. All I read about is the negative press on them.
  11. Great write up Ken, you have a talent for telling a story & marketing! Glad Maizy & I could bring you along on the Jersey leg of our Fall 2018 turkey tour!

    Medicare ?

    I will say, you do sound as if you have some knowledge of how to get help for veterans, and I commend you (and anyone else) who help those who have served. But as mentioned, my experience has also been similar to what Lunatic and others here have mentioned. None of the relatives or customers I've had had served in the military, so maybe we are talking about 2 different scenarios? And I agree, the time to consult any type of expert is way before any service begins, the idea being to try and preserve capital beforehand, if at all possible.

    Medicare ?

    I'm by far no expert, but this has been my experience/observation also. Asking someone in the county government to help me would be the last option I would use. I would get in touch with a reputable lawyer, even if it's just to get an initial consultation.
