2 Really nice racks.. Kudos to you and your crew...

We're heading back in Thursday for 11+ days... As of now, the weather looks prime for hunting but it changes so fast... Looking for that white powder.

Went up for 6 days last week for the opener... Saturday night it dropped down to 18 degrees, and in the morning the ground was white with a heavy frost. By Monday the rains came...

Put up a nice buck in the heavy pines down in the swamp but I had my rifle slung over my shoulder. By the time I got it up into firing position that buck was gone...long gone. Never saw it again. I stalked the area almost 2 hours without a trace of that deer... That buck doesn't know it but, "I'll be back"...

Bluesman...

Awesome deer, Buckladd. Congrats to you! Would love to hear the stories. Tree stands? Still hunting?
Hoping this coming weekend the combo of weather change and the rut get the bucks moving more than Iíve seen thus far.

We make deer drives and both of these bucks were shot by drivers. One, was wounded the week prior and we tracked it over a mile on opening day, so it was gratifying to catch up to it a week later, which is why we hunted there. We learned a lot about deer with leg wounds. Still, overall we're not seeing a lot of deer but still have some places to hunt where we haven't yet.

Nice work by you and your crew Buckladd!! Congratulations.
I stillhunted hunted some favorite haunts in central adirondacks last weekend. Didn't see any deer but the rub and scrape activity was pretty good.

Last Call

It was a slow year in my neck of the woods. I saw does, but no bucks. Same deal as usual - some folks had good fortune and others not so much. I'm going to give it another try tomorrow and maybe Sunday with the muzzleloader to close out the northern zone. Good luck to all that are heading out this weekend. Be safe and have fun!

I was thinking about this thread. After we got a few bucks early on things slowed down, but picked back up late season when it finally cooled off. Since around Thanksgiving deer have been moving, we got another decent 7-pointer and had a few misses.

I've been out around the house with the muzzleloader this week with a few close chances but no luck. I'll shoot does here, but not in our mountain hunting spots. Tomorrow (Saturday) we're bagging it due to the rain, but have a plan for Sunday.

Overall, this has been a strange year. Very unpredictable, but that's deer hunting.

That looks like a nice crew Buckladd. It's all about the cameraderie to me, much more so than the killing, though that is rewarding and memorable too.

Dan, Very nice buck pics from your group . looks like a decent season with many opportunities for the guys & gals you hunt with. Our club had some decent success(I
missed a nice one), but the theme of the deer season was all the small bucks that our members let go, i know of at least 11-12 spike and 3pt. bucks that were given a pass. The norm would usually be a couple. With this many young ones making it thru the season our hope is for next season and beyond. Congrats to all who harvested a buck/bear this past season in or near the Adirondacks.

Would you guys mind divulging some of your tactics for hunting up north?

I'm not talking about locations, blah, blah... just what you put into in terms of finding potential places. How big are we talking? I'm typically used to southerntier hunters using 100-200 acres, but even then that's often with help of multiple hunters. Typically, from those I know, they could bring 2-3 deer per 100 acres, maybe a buck and two doe. I'd imagine the ADKs have much less deer density and thus you're probably lucky to have one deer harvest per 100 acres. But I have no idea, that's why I'm asking...

Also, do you not have doe tags up north? Or do you prefer to fill those elsewhere and just go for buck?

Also a bit curious about getting a deer back out of wilderness. I'd assume that has some bearing on what you're willing to spend a bullet on.

I've only talked to a few people who hunt on leases, and they use 4 wheelers, and have lots of logging roads to access. I'm more interested in those who are hunting the forest preserve and don't have that luxury.
