Hey DPRUGGER: any deer taken with a bow is worth being proud of and worth showing.

Long Island Deer Hunting

What do you guys think of the rut? I haven't been back out there yet, so I don' t know if there are any signs. Not sure if I'd recognize them anyway...
Have you guys seen any?

I'm just wondering if I should give some estrous doe scent a try. I'm hoping to get back out friday morning.

Anyone going out for Turkey, btw?

I've never hunted turkey, but my first year out deer hunting, I was on the ground against a rock wall, and about 6 turkeys wandered around 20 feet in front of me for an hour. It was the day after turkey season, and I only had slugs in my shotgun for deer.

I think that the rut is on.
As for turkey hunting, my opinion is that fall turkey hunting is difficult, just trying to locate the flock is tough and the scrub brush on LI I think would make it hard to see the turkeys. I enjoy the spring turkey seson up state NY.
It may be good to deer hunt while the turkey over lap on LI, there may be hunters walking around and the deer could be moving a bit more.

Well I went out to try getting a turkey for thanksgiving this morning, and didn't see a bird or a deer anywhere...
From some guys I talked to at the rocky pt station today, 8 turkeys were taken on LI so far, before today.

They need a spring season if they want to thin out the flock.

All public land south of the LIE you don't need a daily permit, park in marked spots.
