    Another Snowstorm

    Here in Southern New England we are to get a coating but it will be cold and windy. I wonder how that will affect the turkey hunting? I suspect they will really not gobble at all.

    Crow call advice..

    Thank you for the responses. Someone suggested that the call may be dirty so I washed it in hot water and DAWN. Well I assembled it when it was still damp and it sounded like a sick duck. Now it does sound like a real crow. I just got concerned because it did not sound right but now it seems...

    Crow call advice..

    Out of the ordinary

    Hello All: It may sound odd but this is something I have been thinking about. A hunt in Poland. My ancestors came from southeaster Poland and I have always thought it would be neat to go on a special hunting trip in the region. I have looked into it a bit. Due to the very strict gun laws in...

    Chinese Virus

    Well. So far where I work all of the students with the exception of a few of the homeless ones have been sent home for three weeks. I still have to go in but there may be a full shut down for three weeks or so. I've planned to go on a goose hunt this weekend in NY but I am wondering if that is a...

    Adirondack Muzzleloader trip

    Sounds like a nice trip but too bad that at least one member did not get a deer. Last month my friends and I went to the Carthage Area of NY State to hunt geese. The guide commented that if you can't get a deer in this area you are doing something wrong. The 'Daks are a different story. He...

    Seeing some deer.

    I was hunting on my cousin's place with the bow. I decided that a ground blind would be the way to go instead of a treestand. For ages I have hunted out of a treestand but today would have been too windy and sadly my vertigo has been acting up. Needless to say I do not want to be up a tree if...

    I put in for some time off.

    After a spring with illness that burned up sick and vacation time I am able to have a hunting vacation this year. I put in for three days during the Thanksgiving week so I have from Friday the 16th to the opening day of Mass shotgun. So now I am trying to figure out what would be the best...

    Moving out of state?

    Hello: I was wondering about this situation. It appears I will be moving back to Massachusetts sometime this late spring or through the summer. What happens to my Connecticut hunting license and tags? I am wondering if they will still be valid for 2018 or will I have to get new ones as a non...

    May have blown it this PM

    Well. I think I blew it, sort of. I did an afternoon treestand hunt on the back side of my property. I went out and put three scent wicks that have been dipped in a bottle of ConQuest Ever Calm lure and climbed into my stand. Pulled up my day pack and Barnett Whitetail 2. I sat until the end of...

    Quick after work hunt....

    I just blew it tonight, I think. We got out of work a few minutes early so I sped home to don my hunting clothes and sit in my back yard treestand. The stand is set on a north facing slope with a very steep angle downward to a flat area. I sat until almost the end of legal shooting light...

    I had to take the day off

    Sadly I had to take the day out for the passing of my godfather. He was in a nursing home for a while and declined quite a bit. I figured that I am an early riser anyways, I took off for a couple of hours with the bow near my home on some state land. I walked up a dirt road leading south...

    For $5, it is worth the opportunity to take a chance

    As usual, I spring for a bear permit. I know my chances are very slim but it is better than sitting around the house. This year I plan to try something a tad different. I have an old whitetail fawn decoy. The plan is to see if I can call in a black bear. I know it has been done by others so I...

    Did everyone get their antlerless permit?

    When I got home today I logged on to the Mass Fish and Hunt site. Checked to see if I won a Zone 8 permit. Great news. Got one for 2017. Now to get it filled is the tough part.

    Trying out this new tick repellent

    http://www.travelerssupply.com/Duration-10-Concentrate-Permethrin-treatment-p/dr10con.htm I spotted it online a while back and ordered the item. I recall Sawyer made a similar treatment for clothing but they seemed to have stopped making it. The last time I saw the Sawyer brand was at the...

    Ninety days from now....

    The Conn. archery season will start. Anyone doing any preparation now? I just completed the process of repainting some of my stands and ladders. In addition, while turkey hunting I found some potentially new stand sites. Other than that, nothing else going on. In a way I can't wait as the last...

    Hinckley Buck.....

    As I looked at the recent posts regarding the Hinckley Buck and other gigantic deer taken in the past it presses me to ask this question. Do you think that someone, outside of a fenced preserve, will shoot a buck as large ? I mean body weight not the current focus on antler measurements.
