    I am a die hard bow hunter but will pick up my .35 Lever action Marlin for our annual Upstate New York and Connecticut rifle hunts. I do break out the slug gun for NJ shotgun and permit seasons but that more a tradition then anything, although I do enjoy a nice long still hunt in some fresh snow through the hemlock thickets deep in the Walpack. I also really enjoy trapping with my favorite critters to target being red/grey fox, coyote and a strange interest in trying to figure out those tricky little mink. Come spring time I spend most of my free time on big Flatbrook and its tributaries chasing trout with my fly rod and spin rod. The booming gobble breaking the silence of a cool spring morning will ALWAYS make my heart skip a beat and thoroughly enjoy NJ, NY and CT turkey seasons.

    December's Bear Harvest....

    Yup. Saw 4 bears on State land yesterday. The harvest #s will be skewed because of lack of places to hunt creating more political and eco terrorist drama . In the end Ultimately the bears will suffer. Sad back and forth we have going on here.

    Cave Cricket infestation

    Glue traps with cat food on them. Then they eat each other. Keep replacing till traps are empty. I battled them 2 summers ago. Nasty creatures. Need a .22 short for them haha

    DIY Ozone Generator Storage Bin

    Thanks guys. Like tinkering ha. Also don't like spending money I don't have to. T cook , my buddy has that bag as well. I build a closet for him using the unit from the bag. PVC pipes , duct tape and done deal. I'll never have an ozonics over my head but for prepping for the hunt, this is def way to go. Save hundreds on fields sprays etc.

    Good luck tomorrow boys

    I'll be out. Z5. Haven't been this excited for an opener in years. Stand is 1/4 mile from road, got some mature deer in area, off work. Here we go! Good luck, be safe!
  6. I'm not big on all the new gadgets out there but I am a big believer and user in scent crusher and similar products. I have the plug in one for the truck and it's incredible what it can do in 30 minutes. A buddy of mine smokes and his truck smelled like a stale Ash tray and McDonald's. 30 min cycle and even his wife couldn't detect a hint of anything. I've tested this little plug in in the woods , with my hound dog and bacon ha etc. It works. Now then, I'm well aware there are options out there for bags, closest, room plug ins etc. This works just fine for me so I figured I'd share and it cost me 38 dollars ( $38 for scent crusher plug in and 8 bucks for the 12v adapter) and took all of 5 minutes to make. Big tub, scent plug in, 12v adapter, speaker wire and a drill. Pretty self explanatory. Fill your tub with your gear. Plug into hot 12v in your truck and done. My wire is bout 30ft long so tub sits outside in good weather, in shed or house if raining. Just thought I'd share. Happy hunting.

    The Walpack Inn-No longer hunter friendly

    I got married there and know the owner very well. Has nothing to do with anti hunting. This is how stuff flies around with little or no truth. Go there and have a conversation with them before you jump to conclusions. I can assure you the last thing the owner is is an anti. There going a different route which he is entitled to because he owns the place. That being said I'm not happy about it but such is life and it doesn't directly effect me in anyway .

    NJ hunters be like

    That's the beauty of hunting. To each his own, hunt how and what you want your way. That being said , for me, quality over quantity. I get a kick out of guys who brag to me they shot 11 deer etc. Hey whatever floats your boat. I could take a deer for every day of the season if I choose. You have to remember, each one of us is in there own stage in the hunting cycle, shooter, etc. So do your thing, be safe and good hunting to you gentlemen.

    Live Streaming Trail Cam: Old Cell Phone

    Of course you can purchase a cam with a cell plan while this is a cool option the point of this is to cost you a few bucks if anything with an old cell phone laying in drawer. Kb- you know those 2 dollar lure holders you can by at Walmart in fishing section? I had a few of those laying around so I put weather stripping in there to keep cam flush with case, covered it with camo duct tape. Used a soldering iron to punch holes in it just big enough for both front and back cameras and melted a little piece of the puzzle plastic over each hole to make little awnings ha. I have this one set up on a stream crossing and use both front and rear cam. You can use a battery back with a port the size of your charger or run weather proof extension cord. One night I saw a fox pass through and used the microphone to mouse squeak , it was hysterical he was going nuts haha. I also have one on the front of house for when I'm at work, that one is hard wired. The wifi booster gives you about 6000 square feet depending on which one you get and is quite handy.

    New to Zone 3

    Use Google maps, and apps like Huntstand, scoutlook, onX maps. Use the terrain features and topos to look for natural breaks and ridges, benches , saddles etc. Like us deer in most cases use the path of least resitence, for us due to laziness, for deer to burn less calories. Look for natural food sources, apples, acorns or planted like corn and soybeans. Except for rut deer revolve around there stomachs. Back to what I said about laziness, the thickest nastiest most hard to reach places where others won't go often hold good deer. Other times simple places right under your nose are honey holes. Keep boots on the ground eyes open and absorb as much information as possible. Get comfortable with a climber, be mobile, bounce around as you find new ground. " Be careful of whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it". Good luck and most of all it's supposed to be fun. Most importantly, don't get hung up on big antler's, shoot what makes your heart skip a beat , at least until you get a few under your belt. Shoot me a message if you want a couple out of the way places in that area that you may want to try. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Stealth walking

    I've always been able to get to a stand in super crunchy leaves on a cold fall day and seen deer within minutes by staggering my steps, not walking with a stride like a human and using a push button turkey call. Couple steps , Yelp Yelp, couple steps Yelp, use call to cover your steps as well. Give it a try. You'll be amazed.

    $28 Trail Cam

    I'm a gadget guy. For things that make sense I utilize technology to it's fullest. Check cameras wirelessly from a distance , utilize every single feature the cam does, video modes, time lapse etc, charge with solar , download firmware updates to keep software as new as possible etc etc. For the price point the tascos do much more then expected, for reliability Moultrie has never let me down. Now I LOVE reconyx Cam and all the features they come with , BUT I had a fairly new camera and lock box walk off a 245 acre private farm and almost threw up haha. After that I put a limit on $ spent to strap it to a tree, say a little prayer and walk out, sad, yes, but a realty because some people just suck. That being said the best part about hunting is it's a solo sort for the most part. Use the gear, tactics etc that works for you. Laslty I am currently testing out a Mico gps that's not meant to be in the camera housing and is linked to an app I have. All the testing I did before it went in the woods worked great. Camera is on state land, IF someone Jack's it I should be able to drive to the front door of whoever stole it and get it back which will be sweet sweet glory 😆😆😆😆😆 stay tuned.
