    Any plans for setting up a booth or handing out literature on getting rid of the effing SaFe (FUAC) act at these venues? I know here at Region 8, its a great chance to make contact with thousands of hunters, many of whom know very little, if anything at all, about whats going on. Robin

    I know this is a hunting thread but how about some fishing pics? This was the second trip for the wife and I up to the salmon river. Only fish we got so far.

    So I was in PA today and I went to get a fishing license. I figured they cannot be more than NY right? WRONG! They are $52 for non-residents! I know NY charges $70 dollars for a non-resident which is ridiculous as well. Pennsylvania goes by calender year so getting one now would be a waste of...

    For a bait casting reel that Chicken Shoot sold me a few months ago. Nice rod. St Croix Legend. Well had it a few weeks and pulled it out last Sunday afternoon on one of the islands of Lake George. Not expecting anything but to get some practice with a bait caster. Caught a medium size Small...
  8. Carry/Conceal
    I've searched threads and haven't come up with anything solid, anyone know if you can carry a pistol (my case would be .22 with shot for snakes and such) while fishing. My permit is target/hunting restricted atm, Chenango county is really good about CCW and i will be taking the class withing a...

    I was wondering if anyone could share their favorite fishing spots in WNY. I live in genesee county and have a couple spots that I usually go to, but I am hoping to find a new one. Edit: Also I don't have a boat, so I am strictly a from shore kind of guy

    Can anyone tell me what depth they are liking right now, if any? I might go out this weekend and hoped to get a head start on what depth they are at right now. My fish finder does a terrible job at seeing the fish on the bottom and has a very narrow cone. I'll be pulling copper. No Seth Green...

  13. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    Hey everyone, don't know if this is the correct place to put this as there isn't a dedicated fishing area. My wife and myself along with my Uncle are looking for new places to fish around our area so I thought I would ask if anyone knew some good spots for bass, pike etc. We have been fishing...

  16. Pistol Permits
    So I see some counties issue pistol permits and you are allowed to have them for fishing?? How many people fish with their pistols?? Just seems funny they list it on the permit. Would they revoke your permit if you unloaded into the water? Because you know there are some not so bright people who...

    I'm heading up the Jessup River trout fishing in April. I know this subject has come up before. Don't what to beat a dead horse or be a pain. Just like to know if I will be abiding the law or breaking the law. I'm having great difficulty finding a definitive answer on weather or not it is...

    Not sure if you were all aware of the DEP watershed permits to hunt/hike/fish on the watershed land I know there's some in Putnam/Westchester but most is on the west half of the Hudson River. I was just told about this by a guy at the gun shop today. Figured I'd pass it along if you guy's didn't...
