Deer season just started in NY last weekend. My dad and I made the 3 hour drive from NJ to his vacation house in NY for a deer hunt. Opening day I got a doe and 2 days later I got an 8 point buck.

It was a great experience and I'm glad I got my hunting license. I'm 29 years old and wish I started when I was younger... but better late than never. I'm already hooked and am getting the bow license. Shotgun season in NJ starts Dec. 3rd and then comes winter bow.

Here's me with the doe



and me with the buck

Thanks Roy, it's a Remington 760 which was discontinued in the 80's. My dads gun since he was 14. Pretty cool shooting my first two deer with his gun.

I hunted pretty hard for NJ shotgun week but didn't get anything. Had fun though and can't wait for next year Phone Post

Thats awesome you shot two, congrats. Thats the tough part with hunting deer, because when nothing walks by all day long it sucks but when they come its awesome. thats why so many kids dont get involved because deer hunting just plain sucks and is boring. But you being an adult I can see it being easier.

Do you plan on hunting anything else this year? Here in Pa when deer season ends we start shooting coyote.

Thanks Muppet. I'm going to try pheasant hunting with a coworker some time in the next few weeks. He takes his dog out with him so I'm excited for that.

I agree about it getting boring when no deer are around but I really enjoy the time in the woods. If I was younger I'm not sure how I'd feel. Phone Post

So pumped got the mount back today! The light kinda made for a shit picture, but it looks 100x better in person. I'm really happy.

Zev what's up brother! Long time no talk. Hope all is well, would love to get together for a hunt... let's definitely set something up this season.

You train at all anymore? I officially hit the 10 year mark as a blue belt in August. I train about 5 - 10 times a year, totally pissed at myself.
