I'm Back

Well after our 4 day adventure ended it was a long ride home. We had some snow for all 4 days. It took us two days to find them but what a great hunt. We collectively saw 9 deer and kicked out 4 others. Saw one bear, with signs of several others. Lots of different tracks and yes "some" beechnuts. One 5 point was killed. I kicked out and tracked a big boy, but couldn't catch up to him and his girlfriend. Another separate buck was tracked on a different mountain, but never seen before dark. Saw some neat country and had another great ADK adventure. Now it's over until next year. Anyone need a tag? JK.

Shoot straight

Sounds like a good 4 days CP. I can't count the number of nice tracks that never slowed down enough to catch up. Glad you had some snow to hunt on. Good luck in Pa.

Nice re-cap, looks like you had some excellent adventures, tracking an ADK buck in snow must really get the adrenaline going.

Sounds exciting in my book CP. Thanks for the narrative on the trip and congratulations on the 5 point. Cheers. Kelly

Any luck yet Eagle? Bio after looking at the map I don't believe I hunt far from you. (as the crow flies that is. I know you experienced guys know this but Anywhere we found any beechnuts the ground was just plain beat up. I saw very little scrape and rub activity over my stay the bucks seemed very much locked up. The buck I jumped the last afternoon made about a 200 yard circle and came back to pick up his doe. If I would a charged up to where he blew out of I may have seen him making his arc. Live and Learn.

CP: No luck up north yet. I have the week after Thanksgiving off and that will be my major hunt up north. I bagged a crotch horn near home during black powder season. That's my meat deer. Will be looking for ole mosseyhorns up north.

Sometimes we win sometimes we go home without. Sorry, to say it has happened to me more times than I care to admit. Next time CP.

I hate to say it but...we should appreciate more that we are still healthy enough to at least get out in Gods Country! Enjoy the smell of the woods and fresh air and of course,the beauty.That alone ,is special to me! The rest is a bonus on top of it all.Have a great year all!

Agreed! I'm 46 and hike,bike and workout religiously for the last 6 yrs. All that said, I had a heart attack 6 months ago and had to have a stent put in to unclog a double blockage. Although I feel much better than I have in years, I've found I can't go like I used to while hunting. But the 5+ miles of bushwhack hunting today made me realize how much I enjoyed it and didn't 'take it all in' before. Now I'm exhausted and it will take me all day tomorrow to recover. But good memories were made with my sister, we saw 10 deer total and some awesome terrain.
Great Day!

40 here. Not native to ADK. I am amazed every time I go. What did you see this time dad? is the usual question when I return not, "Did you get anything?" I train to go there "I know that sounds dumb", but I don't want to be held back when I decide to go for the top or to try to circle a buck, or need to get to my friends to help with a 4 - 5 hour drag. other things I saw on my trip, 50 - 60 grouse, a spot where a moose stepped through a bridge. two giant dinosaur nuts, A boulder laden crotch with smooth sheer sides. I climbed that crotch Bear tracks out the gigi. porcupine tracks, a sweet lil stream that I am going to try to catch a trout out of next July. a stand of the biggest hemlocks I have ever witnessed, No TV, Limited Cell, bed by 8:30, a squall totally cover a mountaintop, fresh ground perculated coffee every morning. toast out of a wood stove. And the sadness of the drive out know one adventure has ended and hoping next years will be as great.

Despite my disappointment in not getting a bonus so far this year I agree wildbrookies I am very happy that I can get out and do this stuff.
