    New to hunting...Advice?

    Great advice here! If your out there you have a chance. You don't have much of a chance when your on the couch "warming up"

    What do you drink after hunting?

    like someone said earlier depends on if I or we were sucessful. If not 1-2 scopes of BCAA's with 40-60oz of water to hydrate and get my legs ready for the next day. If someone was successful might have a light beer or two. If a beast was slayed probably a few rounds of congratulatory shots

    Big Adirondack Buck

    Sent the picture to my wife's cousin who lives in Oswego, asking if he had heard about it. He said he had, and he also heard it came from the tug hill area.

    Scouting maps

    What Haystaddle said. when I was in idaho I quickly downloaded 3 maps of 3 different areas we were going to hunt while I was sitting in the airport. One of the maps I never used, used the other two and covered around 50 miles in 6ish days of hunting. Never took my gps out of my pack

    Scouting maps

    Just purchase Onx. Did all my online scouting for Idaho with it. Marked waypoints, water sources, shows private land, trail access. Then all those waypoint automatically upload to your cell app. Game changer! Only thing google earth might have on Onx is the tilt feature of GE to really get...

    If you could only have ONE big game rifle?

    I know this is mainly a 30-06 pump gun and 35 whalen site but no love for the 6.5 cred? Just curious about them. I don't personally have one but have been hearing alot of good things about them, long range accuracy, low recoil, +/- 3000fps. Also considered a short action which I tend to...

    I remember growing up it was a get together tradition with my dad and his hunting buddy, and I usually was able to tag along. During deer season if the phone rang I'd try to be the first one to it in hopes it was my dads friend. The phone conversation would usually last about 10 seconds...

    I'm guessing if a warden asks you to take you to the kill site and the gut pile there is some speculation on how the kill transpired, and if you take them to the kill site, and the gut pile is at a different location that may not look good for you. . . . I know personally I've never dragged a...

    ON X app question?

    Used it in Idaho this year, never even took my gps out of my pack. Was kicking the tires on a new gps, after using OnX don't think that'll be happening.

    So, how do you feel about next season's changes?

    you are correct about bow season. you can bow hunt from the beginning of archery to the end of muzzleloader excluding rifle season. Us archers in vermont will finally have the opportunity to see rut like behavior! Overall I like all the rule changes! can't wait to see how they effect...

    Or kids can be "furry's" in school and bark and meow responses to questions. But god forbid my kid use the "wrong" pronoun that someone is identifying as that day. . . . . oh the world we live in.

    How'd Everyone Do This Weekend?

    muzzleloader was about par for the course for this season. Shot at and missed a doe the first sunday morning, she was on the move thru some whips, freehand at 80 yards. Sunday afternoon hunted with a guy with cerebral palsy. Put a doe in front of him at 20 feet, and muzzleloader misfired...
