deer /bear hunt
I finally broke down and called a outfitter.I've never gone on a guided hunt with an outfitter before.This year i had some tags left over and NY allows you to use them in the early bow season in the northern zone.Which is the adirondacks.Wells the adirondacks are huge and even though i sent away for info and i had gotten some tips i decieded it would be best to spend some extra cash and go with a guide.I got 2 deer tags 1 buck and 1 i can take either sex and a bear tag.Im going for 5 days of hunting.Its all fair chase 100% wild some is on leased private property and some state land. 3 meals a day and a place to stay.fully guided with 2 way radios and quads ladder stands and the guide will also push deer.If i want they have grouse hunting and fishing.The fee for 5 days is $1000..Im so pumped up for this im going the day of my 41st birthday.I figure i aint getting any younger and its a present i'll never forget.I was on the phone with the guy for a long time i asked all kinds of questions i checked up on his references and his BBB record ,no complaints.I have been putting a little bit away every month and the trip is paid for .I cant wait ,im sending out the deposit tomorrow.as it stands im the only one in camp that week so far,most of the clients like to gun hunt.I love the idea of having 3 tags in my pocket that i all ready paid for .He's sending me a list of things to bring and im gonna start doing a little more exercise to make my hunt even more enjoyable.Im so excited i feel like a kid at Christmas
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
