  1. That really sucks. Par for the course this year I guess Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. Is the boat launch still open at night after the park closes or do they have new rules with covid? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. Anybody been to spruce run lately? Is the boat launch open at night? Is there still an algae bloom going on there? I was thinking of trying for hybrids this weekend, but didn't want to get all the way there to find out you can't launch a boat or fishing is off limits or some other bs Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  4. What's the latest in the spring that you have seen bucks still holding? I'm hoping to be able to find the sheds from a neighborhood 8 pointer before spring green up, but he's still hanging onto them Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. Out in z12 till around 830, then back out for the afternoon till dark. Sure was cold this morning. Quiet too Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. I wish I would have known that earlier Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. I was aiming for a double lung shot, not for the heart, so it would have been a bit higher to start off. There was another deer that was standing about 15 yards from the blind that may have reacted while I was focused on the buck. He was also coming in to the feeder and was very cautious and seemed to be on edge before the shot,, but had his head down feeding at the time the shot went off. I was thinking along the same lines that there's no way for a deer to duck at such a short distance, but it seems there were other factors at play. I think next time I will aim for the heart, so if he ducks I'll still get lungs. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. How much is membership annually? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  9. I took a 26 yard shot with my compound bow from a ground blind last night at a real nice 8 point. I noticed that the buck dropped a good 8 inches or more and the arrow went right over his back (lodged in the tree right behind him and the shaft was clean). There was no wind and you could've heard a pin drop where I was hunting yesterday. Do you guys intentionally aim lower expecting the deer to duck the arrow?

  10. Having never done it before and at the risk of sounding like an ass, how many average size ash trees does it take to get 2 cords? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. His property is part of a forest stewardship program. He was telling me that the majority of his ash trees will be dead in a year or two because of beetles. Not sure if he gets reimbursed or not. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  12. The property is something like 38 acres. (Maybe half of that huntable) Each guy has his own designated area, to hunt. The last 2 seasons I have paid nothing. He just wanted deer taken off the property as payment, but now the landowner's son is moving out and he is in his late 70's, so he just needs a way to get firewood. So, $450 for 3 years is a heck of a deal in my mind even if it isn't the best deer hunting property around (which it truly isn't). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  13. We can. I was trying to see if it would e better/easier to just buy it instead Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. The landowner of the property I hunt asked that each of the three hunters provide 2 cords of firewood each as payment for hunting rights to the property. How much does a cord of wood go for near Hunterdon county these days? What's a good place to have it delivered that you can recommend? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  15. It doesn't mention rimfire rifles either Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  16. I was out this morning before first light and found my blind zipper frozen shut and treestand steps with about 3/16" of ice on them and lifeline was frozen solid, so I hunted from the ground. Deer came in from directly behind me and got to about 20 ft away and then started blowing. Every other deer in hunterdon county probably heard it. Doomed from the start. Hunt lasted all of about 20 mins Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks guys, I'm going to lay a cheapie orange vest on top of the blind with an orange hat on top of that pinned to the loop. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  18. Exactly, but my question is what is everyone using to accomplish this? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  19. I was going to sit in my ground blind on Monday for the opening day of monsoon season. What are you guys using to mark the location of your blinds with hunter orange? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  20. Nothing moving yet in z12 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  21. Why not leave the crate in the blind? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  22. Find yourself a used leupold crossbones scope. It's a 2-7x32 I believe and is a much better piece of glass than the stuff that comes on most crossbows. I got mine for $125 or 150 a couple years ago. I don't recall exactly how much. No illuminated reticle, but also haven't needed it either Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  23. I'm hunting this year with a Silverback tension style handheld release aid. I can't clip it to the D-loop because it doesn't fully close and will fall off. Where do you guys keep your release aids while sitting in the stand? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  24. There was the slightest south wind yesterday, but they always come from a neighbor's property to the west of the blind and feeder. I suppose it's possible that I bumped them but it's only a 75 yard walk along tall matted down grass from the land owner's driveway to the blind. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
