  1. I'm on stand in Sterling Forest- Indian Hill... NYS 3J. I originally planned to hunt the pipeline off 17A. Since I'm using my.243 that is better suited because I have 200+ yard shots there. Unfortunately there was a guy there in my shooting area and two more near by. So I came here. This area is better suited to using my flintlock because it has some thick brush in front of me and to my left. To my right is pretty open out to about 150 yards. I bow hunted this area, actually the tree I was using is 60 yards from here. All season there has been a significant amount of rubs and droppings h
  2. That's not new.....I tried to buy ammo a few months ago and they wouldn't ship to NJ
  3. I live and hunt in Z3.Generally I see more bears than deer. I recently scouted a new area in the Newark Watershed where I actually saw some does while scouting and several rubs as well. I would have been out there today if it wasn't raining. Maybe tomorrow. I have taken some good bucks in Z3 and the adjacent Sterling Forest NY. Only one is recent though about four years ago. Whether or not I shoot a doe depends more on the weapon I am using. With the recurve or the flintlock I will shoot a doe where and when it's legal. I'm much more selective with any of my weapons that have a scope

  5. Ramsey grossly inflates ammo prices....The same ammo at Tackle and Field is $16 per box
  6. Pheasant hunting in Illinois with my sons and grandson yesterday. Grandson's first time hunting
  7. I just checked, the forecast I'm seeing says rain Monday, but not Tues.
  8. They have been phasing out hunting for a while. The E Hanover store stopped carrying hunting and guns ten years ago.
  9. As I posted about a year ago, my son's GSP got eaten by a gator. Him and the dog were out scouting the Florida equivalent to a WMA the day before quail opening day. The dog when in some high weeds and disappeared.
  10. Years ago I aquired several dozen exothermic chemical hand warmers. These were made in Canada and worked really well. Unfortunately I used them all up long ago and haven't ever seen these for sale anywhere since.
  11. I have hung deer overnight in 50° temperature with no problem. The ideal temperature for aging is between 35° and 39° . When Jorge the butcher was in business he had a cooler regulated to that temperature. He hung everyone's deer in it for a few days. That made a real difference in taste and tenderness. I don't know of any other butchers that do that.
  12. I never sat facing the tree in mine. I only hunted with a firearm from it once. Back to tree I didn't like the geometry of the rifle rest. I couldn't get it high enough. I am planning on using it this year with my flintlock. When you sit facing the tree doesn't the safety line get in the way?
  13. I saw an episode of Meateater where they were hunting Sitka deer on the East Shore of Maryland... pretty cool.... Nice buck congrats
  14. I don't usually respond to you because it just provides you an opportunity to push your liberal propaganda. However you have no right to comment on my bravery unless you have a DD-214 with more citations than mine, that is if you have a DD-224 at all or even know what it is. With regard to your neice it doesn't take much courage to treat patients with a better than 99% recovery rate. You are just pushing the propaganda the left is using to control us. Too bad you have drank the kool-aid. Let me ask you this:do you even hunt and own guns. I have never seen you post in any hun
