  1. BUMP! Tickets are still available. The Early Bird Raffle tickets deal is available online for purchase for another day. Venue is super kid friendly - pool with lifeguard, mini putt putt, playground and more. Dinner is an all you can eat BBQ/Picnic buffet. Weather looks to be beautiful and we will be under a pavilion for the dinner! Come support the Women in the Outdoors so we can continue hosting our mentored hunt events.

  3. The ones I have encountered were either a grown 40+ yo man, and a dad with kids who also road down a public regular road and flipped me the bird when he saw I was filming them.
  4. My understanding is they have to catch them in the act. The key seems to be calling them while you/they are there. During turkey season this spring we encountered two different groups, both living on bordering property. I have zero hesitation calling and reporting them.

  6. Have a leak in the roof next to/near a sky light. I need to get the roof tarped ASAP. It's a single story, 800 sq ft house in Beachwood. Any roofers/contractors in the area or can anyone recommend someone who can get this done?
  7. I think I read the rules right, but want to make sure... I have a doe and a buck to enter. My doe pic doesn't have a weapon in the pic. Can I upgrade that entry once I remember to get my act together and include the bow in the pic?
  8. I figured this out last year... between 4 spots we spend less than $100 per season in bait/minerals.
  9. Open to all ladies 18 years or older! We are taking WITO Deer Camp virtual this year. In the same spirit as the event that started it all last year, we will run a virtual online course for 6 weeks and will include a ton of workshops/information and all the fun stuff we are known for (giveaways, contests, swag etc). If you or someone you know is interested, feel free to reach out to me with any questions or visit the website at www.witodeercamp.org This year the NWTF is excited to have NJOA on board as a sponsor and to bring back NJDF&W as a sponsor and of course our partners UBNJ & Wildlife Women.
  10. IMHO, based on the people I come into contact with through running mentored hunting programs and being an adult onset hunter myself.. our future is not in the youth. Right now and for the foreseeable future the only way we will grow ranks is by bringing in women (of all ages) and adult men 18-40ish. When We organize women’s events we literally have women of all ages from 18-60’s. These women are thirsty for hunting and want to dive in head first and learn all the things and it’s great that we are now in a place to provide programs in so many different disciplines and species here in NJ. And the second group.. are left out in droves and it’s a shame. We have finally opened up turkey and deer hunts for all adults. What happened was we were getting so many guys asking for it, so now it’s an option. Hook those groups, foster them and we will get the kids that come up below them. I have sat through a lot of seminars and presentations on this subject, read a lot about it. There is a forgotten generation that wasn’t raised with it, wasn’t exposed to it and either now they are interested or their adultish kids are.
  11. Yeah, it looks a little more severe of an angle than it actually is, but I hear you.
  12. 2019 WITO Deer Camp is a wrap. Thanks to everyone for the kind words, encouragement and support. Just wanted to share a brief update, as I am sure you will hear or see more about it sooner than later. We had 16 hunters, 5 of them took and passed hunter education to start their weekend. The hunters were treated to various workshops including dog tracking (Thanks to Darren Doran), Butchering & Processing (thanks to Newton HS FFA), Deer Biology (NJDFW - Carole Stanko), Wildlife Law Enforcement with a NJDFW CPO, Wild Game Prep and cooking (Chef Chad), where to hunt, how to find land and more... Saturday they were paired up with a mentor for a morning and afternoon hunt. Deer, bears and more were seen and one lucky hunter harvested this beautiful 9pt buck on public land. The NWTF - Women in the Outdoors, UBNJ, Wildilfe Women and NJDFW partnered to provide this outstanding experience and Fairview Lake YMCA Camps was our home base for the weekend.
  13. Awesome, thanks. I forgot that Perona's chef does wild game.
  14. Any wild game Chef's in the house, or does anyone know any professional wild game chefs? In need of assistance with an upcoming event. TIA!
  15. Congratulations Donna!! I have loved getting to follow along on your journey to get this guy. What an amazing history.
  16. Wouldn't even second guess taking that shot.
