    Official 2021 Deer Hunting Thread

    I've been up for crossbow in 3J several times for the past 2 weeks. I'm going up again tomorrow in a last ditch effort to get a deer before the woods light up with gunfire Saturday morning. We've been having a great time seeing all the nice deer that would have been an easy kill with a rifle. Last year during crossbow I had 9 opportunities for easy kills If I had a rifle. This year the count is similar. Come Saturday morning all of those deer will be dead or simply disappear. maddening.. Good luck everyone

        How do you like that area? Came accross a property that I like the looks of in Hancock, plan on trying to check it out later during rifle season. Good luck on the hunt.

          Nothing much changed in 40 years except the deer population is nothing like when I started hunting up there.

          Statistically, Hancock was always known for giving up a large number of bucks, AND with big racks as well, but like Phil stated, not so much anymore. Same for Deposit just to the West. Very nice area though.

        Hey good luck Phil, fill them tags. Life got in the way this year and I'm not heading up until early Monday morning. We've got 2 4W's and a 3N too. After last years debacle I've vowed never to return to Putnam County so my brother will have to fill that by himself.

            I missed the last few with my fathers medical issues, and now I get screwed at work, after 17yrs in.

          All packed up also. Leaving in the am. Checking out some property for sale on the way up too. Maybe something good will come of it. Good luck to all and looking forward to seeing some pics and reading stories this weekend.

              Way up in Potter Co PA having fun with the end of archery season. Even using my non NYS compliant crossbow finally

              Just got about an inch of snow overnight, so it ought to be interesting later this morning. Best of luck to all!

                Well after 48 years in a friends house in Deleware county we are on our own in a Airbnb.

                After being on the market for several years he was able to sell his house because of covid and he moved to Florida permanently. He is in the middle of building his house so he won’t be returning this year. Hopefully next year.

                Nice house not too far from our hunting property. I could see us in this house every year. But still looking for more land and/ or a house if the right deal came along. Prices are still insane.

                Going out for the last day of Xbow with my brother and Friday evening the rest of my gang will be arriving.

                Not the same though. Things change. Not always for the better.

                      May you have a bountiful and safe hunt. 3 NYPD officers? Make yourself the designated RSO.

                        Agreed! At least one person on the trip will have firearms experience.

                      My best friend of 50 years tasked me once again with cleaning a few pistols yesterday during some downtime. He is a retired NYPD who REALLY hates to clean them or maybe won't admit he lacks the knowledge to do so.

                      Cleaned my first and only Glock. Was so much easier than his Ruger Mark 2.

                      Still snowing here up in God's Country. We're heading back for Thanksgiving week tomorrow. Firearms starts the 27th and we will be up for two weeks.

                      Saw a few bucks this morning, but alas they stayed out of range for now.

                      Regards ---------

                        All tucked away in my Airbnb getting ready for opening day tomorrow. We are in 4F. Hope springs eternal.

                          My place is in 4F, and the signs by me have been very optimistic this year. I will post some of my trail cam pix when I get to my laptop. At least the third year in a row, that I have had at least one of each, 2,4,6, and 8 pointers on a regular basis.

                          Didn’t see anything today, but there are plenty of signs (hoof prints and poop).
