5:48 AM LIVE from Ma*
Live from NY Its Sat morning!
It’s Saturday and it’s rifle season!!!! Only means 1 thing....PA is right around the corner!!!!!
Good Luck Drslyr!
And not just any sat morning. Its opening day of rifle season! 2 bucks on trail cam last night but you gotta be able to see em to shoot em. This is a very strange year. As of last night there was no one in the few other camps around here! Although as i lay awake for the last 2 hrs i did hear 3 vehicles drive up the rd.
Oh I’m sure they’ll be showing up in numbers John. You’ll hear the car doors shutting for a while then all hell will break loose haha! Knock em dead!
Half a dizen shots so far... nothing close..... 2 of those shots were in complete darkness
Just had a squee earl jump off a tree into the leaves 10 ft behind me and i almost jumped outa my skin
Up to about 30 gunshots so far..... nothing close yet
My buddy is in troupsburg right now
Now we’re up to to about 40 shots so far..... none close by. The neighbors usually start s drive around 10am
My buddy’s from PA are out....each already passed a few small doe and a small buck each. Hopefully you guys see something worth shooting soon!
Though I strictly bow hunt now in NY, there is always something special about opening morning in NY. It was even better when it was on a Monday. As a little kid I can still remember the anticipation of everyone rolling into camp (we had about 20 guys), the red and black woolrich clothes, Remington pumps (760s mostly) , a few auto's, Bo, the owner of the property looked like Elmer Fudd (outfit and face) and used an old Rem 222, crosshairs in the scope were crooked but he didnt care...he never missed. He shot a 350lb bear with it one season. Good luck all.
Not even a breath of wind 45* Perfect except no deer!
Wow shot close by just now!
You will savor the sweet taste of success now that you’ve picked up a gun
Geez i hope so. Never have i worked so hard hunting.
Mabe the deer gods are upset at us for turning down their offerings
Deer drive just went by from the neighbors. They shot one of the pesky bears thst are here. We ssw 7 together in the summer including one pushing 600lbs. No hair on his belly from draggin in the ground.!
Break for lunch. Neighbors shot one 40 lb doe and one bear on their drive. Pretty sad
Took s ride around on the way back from town..... lots of guys hunting..... three days from now it will be a ghost town
A 40 as in, forty pound doe......?
Only shooting the big ones this year lol.
I’m about ready to shoot that ones twin ifin it walks by.
Won’t be long now. Hang in there. Things will get good soon
Haha I hear ya John. If opening Saturday in PA doe season is slow Monday all mental size limits are off. If it’s brown with no horns it’s dead
So opening day of rifle season is a bust.... no deer seen by me.
Tomorrow is another day
