long island hunting

I have spot 13 its on the back side of 8 i dont know of any way to find out what was shot in there besides asking at the check station. If i get anything ill post it when i return. i never been in by spot 8 but i know everywhere else i have been i havent found that many trees for my climber. I would bring a small folding saw with you b/c there are trees but you will def have to cut some limbs to get up them. GOOD LUCK!!!

Hey Mbucks 27 how do you get to those posts11,12 and 13? do u come in through the golf course entrance? i would have picked 11 because it looks like the least traveled by humans< but didnt know how to get there. Some snow comin in tonight looks like the deer should be movin around this morning.

(DHNY) Yea you get in through the golf course entrance. I hunted there a few times during bow this year at all 3 spots 11,12,13 and didnt really see much action at all in there. Yesterday went out to spot 13 with the muzzleloader in the pouring rain :(. Walked around from about 7 to 11:45 and didnt see any deer. Guess ill call it quits till next year. Good luck!!!!!!!

LONG ISLAND HUNTS

Hi Cris,
We had plenty of success with the bow and shotgun this season on long island. Plenty of my clients had opportunities but blew the shot due to one reason or another. gotta put your time in and scout hard!

Good Hunting!

bow hunting on LI

Hello all, I ;ve been hunting for 15yrs and live in Nassau, never did bow hunting and now I'm looking to take advantage of a longer hunting season, less commute and more hunting here on LI. The only thing that always discouraged me was the permits. checkin stations and run in with other hunters. I guess it can't be that bad since many do it and I'm looking to go out to Otis Pike this week. Any advice, comments, suggestions are appreciated. Any good spots? Thanks and looking forward to your posts. Good luck to all this season!

Gracias Gaucho! Hunting in Michigan, Bass fishing, either you''re a sportsman by profession or have a lot of time on your hands, either way I'm jealous.
I hope to have my first bow hunt at otis pike, rain or shine I need to get in the woods. Do you recommend any good spots?

Thanks for the advice and good luck upstate.
