The Department of Environmental Conservation website has a photo gallery with some greta NY bucks:

There are also photo galleries for small game and youth seasons too

good job NY

Thank you Grooooovy Mike for the link to some pretty nice animals.  I went through them and enjoyed all the big bucks, but better yet, I enjoyed the pictures of fathers and sons on successful hunts.  Which brings up the question.... what is a successful hunt with your father or son?  Just spending some great time in the woods with your father or son is a "successful" hunt.  I learned a long time ago that to be successful, I didn't have to kill something.  I have spent a lot of time with my son and daughter in the woods, and all of it is a success.

There were some nice animals in those pictures.  I would be proud to have a couple of them hanging on my wall.  Where would you put them if you got a couple more Sir Michael??  You might have to build an addition on to your house just for new trophies. 

I also enjoyed the pictures of a father and son with small animals.  The smiles on those faces were just as big as on those with big bucks. 

Thanks for sharing that site.  I'm glad to see New York showing off her people.

A lot of great picyures

A lot of great picyures showing the broad spectrum of quality bucks roaming New York. All those pictures are first deer too. It's good to see the big smiles on everyones face no matter how big the deer in the photo.

That's great that the state puts up a sight like that. It looks like New York has far more to offer than I ever knew.

Thanks for posting that link.

You are very welcome

 

You are very welcome Arrow-Flipper.  A successful hunt with your father or son is indeed just spending some great time together. My son is in oen of the small game section photos with a goose, but I’m not in any of the photos on the DEC site.

 

Where would I put them?  Have you been talking to my wife?  She maintains that I DESERVE a trophy room – aka I have to build an addition on to my house if I bring home any more taxidermy trophies.   How can I argue with that.  I KNOW that she is really saying – ‘get your crap out of my living room’, but when it ends with a trophy room for me, is that a bad thing?

Nice website Mike! I too like

Nice website Mike!

I too like looking at all the successfull hunters, with father and son photos. 

Some beauties in there for sure, but it's also nice to see alot of the "little" ones.  Those guys are smiling as much, if not more than the guys with the "trophies".  That's pretty much my argument against the AR's... . Doesn't need to be big to make someone very happy Wink

Hey - nice pictures on that

Hey - nice pictures on that site. Like has been said, a lot of first hunts and first deer, too. And not all of the first-timers are youth, either.

It looks the kind of deer that we usually see in Michigan; lots of spikes, small forks and sixes with a few eights tossed into the mix.

Thanks for sharing that, Mike. Thumbs up
