im going to be in the ithaca area in the spring to see a friend and do some hunting and fishing maybe we can hook up.Im a new duck hunter myself i got all the stuff just need to get out there.what state land you next too?I would try to get a bow now or soon so you can prctice all summer to be ready for the fall hunt.I know there's a huge bass pro in auburn the archery dept is huge i saw it with my own eyes.i would start there.then you could always find a little guy to purchase or use for proshop work
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
