Long Island Deer Hunting

Another hunting is upon us, Oct 1st, I have been out there scouting and have a couple of cameras out. Have seen two 8's, one 6, and a 4 pointer. The chiggers and the ticks are terrible and hard to avoid. I plan to walk in on a trail and get up into a tree as quickly as possible to avoid those parasites. I can only hope that the cold weather comes early to knock them down a bit. Good luck to all see ya out there.

Long Island Deer Hunting

Went out Oct. 1st, for an afternoon hunt and didn't see a deer. Went out Oct 2nd and at about 9:30 AM saw two does at about 60 yards, at about 11:30 saw one doe at about 80 yards. My range is within 30 yards so no shots were taken. I plan to go out Fri. 10/9 sunrise to sunset.

I have heard early November. I'g going to western NY Nov. 4 to 12 so I hope they are right.
A friend of my son's just got an 8 pointer from Chenango County he said the buck had his nose to the ground. So I guess they are starting to chase.
