    Just want to feel out the hunter ed instructors here. I'm not interested in long drawn out opinions/ethics discussions and I'm only want to hear from instructors. There are about 2,600 of us across the state. We are considered volunteer DEC employees when we teach. Cuomo has proven his...

    I'll be picking up a savage M11 hog hunter, I've heard the stocks are a kind of on the cheap side and a bit flimsy. Im wondering it its worth doing a bedding job on the factory stock or just run it as it is until i get the money for a better stock.

    Hey everyone I am new to hunting (as in never really gone before). I got an email from Cabela's offering up to 60% off hunting clothing and seeing as I have none I was thinking I might pick some stuff up for next year. Anyway... I really don't know what to get. I was looking at some of the...

    Looking for a new long distance gun.Been hearing good things about this single shot H&R. Wondering if anyone has on and can comment ? Also thinking about getting into a 20ga instead of the 12 because of less recoil for better accuracy and since there about the same size as a muzzle loader bullet...

    I hope this is in the right place. It's not really about actual hunting so I put it here. Let me know if this is in the wrong place. Maybe this should go in hunting / trapping ? Anyways the article shows how things can go bad in a hurry. Hunter needs to be rescued from Iroquois wildlife...

    Dale Poulin, Hunter, shoots half his face off with rifle as he recalls exploits with friends | Mail Online Oh man, boos and boomsticks dont mix. Says he did it with a .270.

    Hey guys, I was on the DEC site looking for courses in my area and it looks like I'm too late. I was wondering if the hunter safety courses stop at a certain time during the season? I don't even care about hunting this season, I just want to take the course and get that out of the way. Does the...

  13. Off Topic Lounge
    I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me...

  17. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I've decided to not just kill paper and clay this year, but to put some venison in the freezer, and hopefully a few pheasants on my plate. The guns are covered, now I need to outfit the less fun stuff. I'm going to be hunting on Black Rock's territory if you know it, if not, it's in Orange...

    My son is going to be turning twelve in a few months, so I've been looking into what I have to do to be able to take him to the range to shoot my .22 rifle. It looks as though I need to take a hunter safety course! Is this correct? What does it entail? I have no interest in hunting, though I...

    I am in Fort Johnson, NY (about 30 miles west of Albany) and looking for some recommendations on where to go this year for deer season? There are a lot of farms around and I thought about asking some of the farmers if they minded if I hunted on their property, but didn't know if that was...
