I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am an avid deerhunter from the Adirondacks of New York. Look forward to reading all the great stuff on the site.

Welcome!

Welcome!

Where in the Adirondacks are you? I went to college in Potsdam and my first job out of school was in Cowville...I mean Lowville. Also lived in Rome when in the USAF. I love the Adirondacks but have since disowned NY as my home state thanks to the inane voters (the majority). Thanks Hillary. Evil!

I live in the NE corner of the park ( Essex County) 15 miles south of Plattsburgh. My daughter actually went to Canton for college, she majored in Cows! I do love the Adirondacks, but have also enjoyed NH ( Mt. Washington) a number of times, it is a pretty place. Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I wish I had a picture of a trophy from '06, but the Rack N Claw club had a tough first season, only 1 buck a 4 pointer. It was our first year on new ground and we expect to do better next year.

tough year

Hunting the Adirondacks can be tough. I hunted around Potsdam foe the years I went to college and saw a few but never got one. Put-and-take pheasant hunting in Canton was pretty good just west of town. I took auto welding at Canton ATC for one of my electives. I did the rest of my time at Clarkson. My older brother lives in Plattsburg not too far from GP. He does a little hunting but is really hooked on fishing....no pun intended. I also lived across the lake in St. Albans for five years. Up on the hill by the FAA radar dome. Much better hunting over there for me, right out of the backyard.

Plant Engineer

I was the Plant Engineer at PAJCO (Payne-Jones) across from the fairgrounds. I worked there for a little less than a year. It was a "temporary" position as they were looking for someone with more experience. The GM wanted to hire me full-time but his VP wouldn't let him. It was part of Boise Cascade at the time and you needed 10 years experience to be a Plant Engineer for Boise....at least that's what they told me. Instead I took a job in northern VT...that wasn't all bad either. cool A guy I work with at my current job is from Deferriet originally. Good guy...likes to hunt.

Struttin,
Thanks for the welcome. Did you notice my post on the elk in PA subject? I was just curious if you had seen it. I would LOVE to think that an elk herd was close enough to begin migrating into New York.
It won't be long now and we can start our food plots, that is after the 2 feet of snow we are going to get tomorrow melts.

Hey bud, I did see your post and yes there is definitely some elk in Northeast PA for sure, when I get a chance I will definitely get a game cam up probably later this year! Thumbs up
