For the majority of the Adirondack Park however , the deer populations are thin because of available food, and weather. The older ones are still there , just harder to find I like it that way.
Let the trophy hunters invade the southernteer , not give them more reason to invade the Park . I fear that more big racks comming out of the Park will encourage more people to visit. Look what happened when someone published a list of "the 46 high peaks"


1894,

I agree that it won't work every place and shouldn't be implemented in all areas. I guess what fires me up the most about it is when you have guys in my area that will shoot a spike in every season if they can in the same year (bow, muzzleloader, rifle, late muzzleloader) or when a gang of 20 guys shoots 7 bucks in a year in a relatively small area and the biggest one is a 3pt. They have every right to do it but is it really necessary. I too like the idea that you have to hunt harder to get that wall hanger and it does make it that much more special and thats why for the last 4 years in a row we have shot the biggest buck in the area that we hunt, 5-10 years ago we had a hard time getting guys to hunt with us because we hunted "too hard", not the case anymore with all of the guys in their 50's or older except for me and a cousin. If I had a camp in a different area of the Adirondacks I could have a totally different opinion on this.

Anyone posting pictures of big racks would be appreciated. Who dares?
Little Rickie,
I hunted hard for many years to find that big rack that was perfect, after passing on many racks over the years I finally found one that was big enough but not so big it that it would make people consider me a "trophy hunter" and then I married her.

After this post Tim & Neil may be glued to their computer screens.

I have a picture that I can't access through my work computer. It's not bad
or nasty. If someone can post it for me then send me a pm and & I''l show you how to bring it up and maybe you can link it to this post.

Got it off another website. Good! I'm not getting sworn at!

Got 38 pages of them! This will be a lot of fun.
