long island hunting

Work always seems to get in the way. We do what we can, even if we can get out for an hour. Sometimes after getting home from work at 2 AM we get up at 6AM to scout. The effort pays off, but sometimes it does seem like work.
By the way at spot #18 it is more like the N/E end

If I remember correctly there might be 1 or two spots where bow hunting is the only thing permitted; places very close to residential homes. Make sure you;ve obtain your Access Permit : many guys just jump on without it and get fined by DEC. ; the check station is closed most of October and is only open on SUN, TUE AND THURS AFTER 2:00 PM.........Last season in October hunters were parked almost 2 hours before sunrise until the DEC started patrolling in the morning and ticketing cars......so becareful........Once Nov. comes around the check station is open daily and for certain spots you have to check in every morning.....many areas south of the LIE there is no check in required but check with the ridge station for more information.......During the week you can call the day before and get an early out pass which allows you to check in and get out to the field before everyone else. Make sure you have a plan "B" nothing worse than the morning of Oct.1 you finding another car in your spot! you'll find less archers in late Nov and Dec when the hunting gets good! Good Luck I hope the info was helpful.....see you out there!

thats why i try to look for spots were no one else really is much better that way. dont have to worry about other hunters or anyone else for that manner deer also seem more relaxed and not as spooky then in a area were there are 20 hunters if not more daily

My son, who is 21, and his friend will be out there Oct 1st, I think my first day in the field will be Oct 3rd. Have had a couple of cameras out for the last month and there seem to be bucks any place that I post my camera. Looking forward to a good season. My plan is early season to be patient and wait for a big buck. There is plenty of time and I expect to spend many hours in the woods. Lets all be careful out there and remember your harness while in a tree stand.
