Another CNY season is underway tomorrow. Some of the northern gents may already have a deer down. Post your pics if you got 'em

Here are some old pictures to get the ball rolling


a neighbor's Stueben Co. hunting camp. Awesome place to spend some time.


ummm, venison!


some recent racks courtesy of my 11-87 and Buckhammer slugs. 2 of them have > 17" inside spreads.


Not a bad start to the 2007 season.

Hopefully I will have some new pictures to add soon

Yep. Got my bow ready. Southern tier.

hopefully this winter will be my first - I am hoping to go upstate

anyone have a good lead or some property for me to go on

also any leads on lakes upstate for geese - the salt water birds on long island I have heard are not so tasty

thanks.

While I can't recommend any areas up here, the damn things are all over the place! Every cornfield or mud puddle has a flock of them.

Does this one count?


This one was a team effort; Wounded by a driver on Rt 28 in Inlet, Dispatched by Inlet PD (With a 9mm Glock im told), Transported by Helldog & Mag162, "processed" by Ed Sr and enjoyed by ALL.

This is the only one we harvested at Camp 4 last year, A nice 8 pointer taken by my uncle:

Enough with the blah blah blah. There is already a thread with more than enough of that

More pics!



No fresh ones to add yet, although I did see 2 bucks this afternoon, one of which worked a scrape and a licking branch-within 100yards of where that little 6 point met his maker 2 years back.

Also in Steuben myself, kinda pissed to see snow on the ground BEFORE the start of bow season.  WTF?   Oh well, back out at it tomorrow afternoon.  Thank God we at least have rifle hunting here––I could not and will not stoop myself so low as to shoot deer with a shotgun.  That's just backwards, totally wrong.  DEER RIFLE is a proper word, "deer shotgun" is like "Volkswagon truck" or "grass beer" or "boiled steak" or ketchup on cereal or Barbara Streisand singing with Metallica...it just doesn't go together.

Don't worry about the snow. The weather is supposed to get back up to 55 at the beginning of the week. It'll be gone soon enough.



I'm in Livingston Co. For the past two years, there has been a push to allow rifles south of 20A but nothing so far.
  Come January I can stand in the exact same spot I kill a deer during season and shoot coyotes with my AR. But no, rifles are too dangerous for deer season.

I just started hunting  in Livingston county too. 10 miles north of the airport on the west side of 390. Damn..you got some steep gorges over there. Had to haul a 10 pointer my bud shot 2 years ago ... Couldnt get the Quad anywhere close. 4 hours later and I thought I would have a heart attack. Never again.

The guys in the camp down the road had one fall into the big gorge. 4 Quads, a canoe and a tractor plus all the rope we could find with six guys. Took all day to get that one back. We really gotta get rifles passed up there. Deer dont really move when you whap em with a good bullet

I'll play:

Missed this guy opening day.  Had buck fever real bad!  First year bowhunting and all.  This AM around 9:30, I saw 3 bucks within 10 minutes of each other first was a large spike horn just out of range and never presented a shot.  Second was a four or six, couldn't really tell?  Same thing, never came within 30 yards and no shot.  At this point I'm getting pissed off!  Then along comes mister seven pointer!  He hemmed and hawed around for a while and I though same thing was going to happen.  Something must have caught his eye, because he stopped about 25-30 yards away in a small opening that I could see him through the leaves.  He was quartering away and offered me a good shot.  I placed my arrow high and just inside the rib cage.  Blasted his liver and both lungs.  Found my arrow about 10 yards away from where I hit him.  He went about 50 yards and dropped.




Had the wife take a second picture with my boy in the shot, she neglected to tell me there was a leaf hanging from it's mouth, sorry.  She was more concerned that the boy didn't get blood on him, god for bid!

1st year bowhunting and a early season score. Congrats!!!!!

Buck fever with a bow isnt even comparable to having a gun. The game takes sooooooooo much longer to play out with the bow.
I swear, if I'm going to ever have a heart attack it will be with a bow in my hands.
I've got 30 or so deer to my credit and still hyperventilate and shake every time I see a deer while hunting.
Nothing else in the world comes close........
Link Posted: 10/20/2009 10:28:33 AM EDT
Took me 4 years to shake off buck fever. But when you're fully drawn with the bow with a 70-90 pound pull and waiting for the shot, the arms get wobbly. The most awesome part about bowhunting is that almost everytime during bow, deer pass right underneath you. Come gun season, the deer are under more pressure and do not come as close as during bow.

Population density is a major reason.   A few years ago a spent slug went into an occupied school classroom just south of Rochester.  Plus, the slugs hit hard.  Not a bad deer round at all.  Accuracy with rifles barrels is pretty good too.  There are few long range shots available in New York state.   More and more areas of the state are being opened up to rifle every years and since accidents do not seem to be increasing more may open.  Heavily populated counties like Monroe will never allow rifles and I am ok with that.  Just too many people and too much buck fever going around.

SP10,  That shot is a prize winner.  It could easily make any hunting magazine in the country.  Great photograph.

With today's shotguns, they are very adequate for many deer hunting scenarios, out to 150 yards or so.  Ofcourse, all of my shots have been much closer than that.  Even a smooth bore 20 gauge with cheap foster style slugs can drop deer in their tracks.  Rifle areas do create more options and freedom to choose which firearm you can use, but it's kind of a non-issue for me.  For those of us that hunt over bean fields, they may have a different view.

One down!



Saw her feeding late this afternoon. Thankfully had just enough rain fall to wet the leaves. Used my "stealthy ninja moves" to get within 20 yards, and sealed the deal.

I have a very large hot scrape and a very nice 8 point to hook up with on my back hillside. Hard to go to a strange spot when I know what I have at home

Buck sign has been picking up. Should be a good weekend.

Range is a completely moot issue when hunting from a treestand as the bullet goes into the ground, and anyone with good sense is always in a treestand when using a rifle for that reason.  Thus population density is no excuse.

Ok, maybe a little more Blah-blah-blah, but...
My plan worked perfectly, i swung around down by the swamp and pushed up to my friend Dick.  
I heard the shot and RAN up the hill calling on the radio, "Didjagetit, didjagetit?"
Sadly, he did not.  Two does went past at a good clip, after Dick shot they really moved out.  I know 'cuz i saw the prints.

Moving!

Ah well, there's always tomorrow.

Bagged a three point buck this morning....I was watching three does across the meadow ~400 yds away when the buck walked out 25yds from were I was sitting in a lawn chair in the high grass.
The .300RUM with Barns X-Bullets did one hell of a job: shot him in the neck 6" below the skull leaving a base-ball sized hole, he was dead before he hit the ground. At lease we didn't have to track through the swamp to get him.
105 lbs field dressed weight, cut, wrapped, and in the freezer.  
BTW: the spine was completely gone where the bullet went through: the esophagus, hide, and a little neck muscle was all that was holding the head on.
Link Posted: 11/9/2009 6:12:04 AM EDT
300RUM? that POOR little bambi  

No pics of the carnage?

My brother neck shot a small deer that was directly facing him a few years back. Around 125 yards or so. He was using a 300 Win Mag. Woof. It would REALLY suck to get shot with a large caliber rifle.

My friend's step dad was filling nuisance tags with his 300RUM. He shot a doe and it jumped 6 feet in the air and was dead before it hit the ground. He said the round sounds like a it is hitting a brick wall. The farmer that gave him permission to hunt there then borrowed the rifle for a few weeks.

No pictures and the trash collector just took the head. We field dressed it, brought it home and commenced to dissecting it into small pieces. I was worried that the temp was going to climb, and I just don't trust any of the local deer cutters.

The RUM really smacks the shit right out of them...sux to loose a wounded animal. the load is 180gr. X-Bullet over 96grs of H1000, Federal Gold Medal Magnum primer. There is more room in the case, but what the hell: it's already double a 30'06
