  1. Snuggle up tight against a tree like you’re turkey hunting. They’re vision isn’t that great. Then you can sit as close to your bait as you want.
  2. Isn't Gun Control what the agenda has been all along?

  4. NJ Woods & Water 2019-2020 Youth Deer Hunting Contest Sign Up Page This is the sign up page only - a separate page will be created for donations NJ W&W Member Name (Must Have A Minumum of 25 Posts To Participate) NJ W&W Member's Son/Daughter/Sponsored Youth's Name Location Age of NJ W&W Member's Son/Daughter/Sponsored Youth CONTEST INFORMATION: This is a free contest for any Youth hunter who is sponsored by a NJ W&W member with at least 25 posts. Youth hunter must be hunting with a Youth License. Since this is a completely free contest, prizes will be based on whatever donations (cash, gift cards or merchandise) are received. If your youth shoots a deer, that does not guarantee them a prize as some of the prizes will be randomly drawn from a hat at the end of the contest. Please pm me or post on the separate donation thread if you would like to contribute to this contest for the youth of our NJ W&W Members. Entry requirements due to the call-in system: - a photo showing the filled out Deer Harvest Report Card WITH confirmation number is mandatory - a photo showing the hunter/huntress WITH their harvest is also mandatory Rules are as follows: NJ W&W Member must have a -MINIMUM 25 posts to sign their youth hunter/huntress up. There will be no exceptions. This is a "deer" contest not a "big buck" contest... Every youth gets credit for shooting their deer, doe or buck, big or small, which-ever legal way they choose (bow, shotgun, muzzleloader, or crossbow). Everyone will be regulated by the game limits and laws for New Jersey. Issues of QDM, P&Y or B&C scoring, deer densities, weight of deer, etc. do not apply. All deer must be harvested in New Jersey to be eligible for the contest. Just because your youth shoots a deer, does not guarantee that youth a prize. Point breakdown 5 points for a deer - Buck or Doe. 1 point for every point on a rack of 1 inch or more added to the 5 points. Participant score will consist of 1 deer. If you shoot more than 1 deer you may upgrade your score by submitting the new deer, this will cancel out your previous deer. Ex. shoot a doe, get 5 pts, upgrade to an 8pt buck, you now have 13pts. To submit an entry, a participant MUST include the following details in the "Contest Entry Thread" post: - Your Team Name or Number - NJ W&W Member Screen Name - Youth Name - Deer Harvested - Buck or Doe - the number of tines that are longer than 1 inch (main beam counts), if applicable. - a photo of himself/herself with the deer. Please take a photo with "class". Stick in the tongue, wipe off the blood, take it out of the pickup. Be proud of your harvest and show it with a good "quality" photo. - photo(s) with all scorable tines visable. All tines must be 1 inch to be counted. I will ask for photo verification! If it's questionable, grab a tape measure and take a photo with the tape measure. If it's under, don't count it. - a photo showing the Deer Harvest Report Card, found in the compendium. For privacy purposes of the youths, please block out their last name and license number. (Farmer depredation permit not allowed) If the above criteria is not met, no points will be awarded! So, if you do not show a picture of the youth and the deer, no points. If you forget a tag pic, no points. ** If you have issues with scanning or posting your photos I would be happy to help you out or post them for you, just pm me. **Any entry without the required information, photos, or photos that do not meet all entry requirements, will not be accepted. Contest ends 1 week after the late deer season ends statewide. All entries must be received & posted by this time. In case of a tie, the highest total number of antler points will decide the winner. If this does not resolve the tie, total number of bucks taken will be next. If this still does not decide, the winning team will be drawn from a hat. Sign up will be until midnight on September 5, 2019 and teams will be drawn on September 6th. I would like to make the teams consist of either 3 or 4 participants each, but that will depend on the total number of entries. NJ W&W Members, if you are sponsoring a youth hunter that is not your child, please make sure you have their parent's permission to put their child's picture on the internet. Finally, please do not make me chase you down to distribute prizes. If you enter a youth, please check back to see if their team won anything or if they won anything in the drawings !!! Good luck to all!!!!! ** Clarification for youths who are 16 ** Since a Youth License is valid from time of issuance until December 31 of the year that he or she turns 16, youths who turned 16 in 2019 may enter the contest and submit entries of deer harvested until their Youth License expires on December 31, 2019.
  5. BHC, are you going? What are the dates? Who is providing the dinners? Semi guided? Stands in place already? What lodging is available?
  6. When are you going? Greg has a group going the week of the 19th. I'm not going this year I've hunted with Stony Brook 3 times and a different outfitter once. Bob and Jaye will go out of their way to make you comfortable and set you up on a bear. You will be amazed at the quality and the amount of food they prepare for you. You do have to realize that you're not generally going to see the monsters up there like you would here in NJ. Most bears up there in New Brunswick will go around the 150-185 pound size range, sometimes a 200-250 will get shot and occasionally a 400 pounder, and many hunters will take a 100 pound bear also. If you see cubs the size of the bucket, don't shoot the sow as they are this years cubs and won't survive without her. Let your guide know and he will set you up on a different bait. The bear will shrink after you shoot it as it's lungs will no longer be expanded and its fur puffed out. In general you will sit on the same bait twice and then get moved if you don't see or shot anything. Make sure to bring plenty of bug netting for your head and hands, rain gear and warm weather gear also as the temps vary greatly. Two Thermacells are a must and a way to attach them behind you on a tree and underneath you as well. Bring an extra towel to hang on the shower house window, just in case. If you have a She-Wee, bring that too. Do you have a Scent Crusher Bag to run your clothing through after each hunt? Bears can't see that well, but they do have a great sense of smell. You can purchase a fishing license and fish in the off hours as you will leave to hunt somewhere around 2-3 depending on how far from camp you are hunting and you'll get back anywhere from 10 pm to midnight. Also bring flashlights, extension cords and an outside battery operated camping light (I am assuming you'll be in one of the cabins). The generator goes off around midnight . It's great to sit on the porch in the evenings and listen to the loons. There's one rock along the walkway to the cabins where you will get service on your phone and also the second step of the first cabin, lol I've sent you my phone number, so if you have any other questions, feel free to call me. -Robin
