Yeah we used to have a place near Cuba NY, we sold it the year before centerfires were allowed.
I have a nice chunk of land up here now and seeing deer like this is common. This guy was third largest i have seen or got on camera this year, He was on the hit list.
I started using the product "No Stinking Ticks" last year during turkey season and since have not found a single tick on me at all. Including a 150 yard crawl through tall grass to get my turkey (don't ask).
Got this nice big doe on Sunday morning. I was down wind of her and she kept coming right at me, went in through the front of her chest and out just behind her right front shoulder. Took most of her lung with it. She ran 75 yards to the hedge row and dropped. Not bad for my second year out hunting, shes much bigger then the button buck I took last year.
