Default Last day of shotgun was good for me again.

My father has been sick with the flu, and had his buck tag unfilled, so after taking my daughter to school I went over and picked up the tag.Drove about 26 miles and ten minutes after getting out of my car I filled the tag with a really nice 7pt. It's legal in NY to fill someone elses tag if they sign it over to you. This is the fourth time I remember getting a deer on the last day.Three times within about seventy yards of this spot.

I watched the Buck get out of his bed and took him with one well placed shot.

Charlie,
Will you give me directions to the opening to the underground tunnel system in NY that all the deer are using? I tried to locate it the last few days, but i couldn't seem to come across it. I take it that it's further south than me? Congrats on a final day Buck buddy. Way to go. Are you going to hunt late bow and muzzleloader?
Close your eyes and see what I saw today. Zilch!!

NYBowhunter, I'll be going back to this spot at least once with the Bow. I cannot believe the tracks I saw since we got the snow Saturday. They logged the neighboring property and thier bedding in the tops, and munching in his green field.

I pushed all your deer out of your area the other day.lol.

I can't take anyone in this spot or I'd gladly invite you down. The landowner is a little different, good guy and all but he's different. Picture this house. 11 bedrooms on the second floor two of them have fireplaces. It's an old cattle farm they had something like 500 head and the workers all lived there. They have a total of 6 fireplaces the place is huge. It's their summer place.

Wish I had a muzzleloader. I definately want to get one by next season.


You and I are going to have to get together for a couple adult beverages one of these days.

Aught Six, I keep saying to myself you have to get camera and carry it in your pack. No pics, sorry.

No I didn't know!! So now I'm a poacher? I honestly thought it was legal. Talk about feeling like a total idiot. If I did know I wouldn't be stupid enough to post on the Internet.
