WF, While in PA last week the old apple orchard was nearly barren. They were hit with a late spring freeze and killed most of the buds. Acorn crop looks very good. Sounds like a dream hunting area in NY you got with some nice bucks. Family hunting, it just doesn't get any better than that! I did locate a few really nice rubs indicating multi-branched antlers. I'm set up on a natural funnel that separates two rock faces. I have a mountain stream to my south 100 yds and two laural thickets to my east & west. There must be 6 major travel paths converging into the funnel which is only 40-50 yds and necks down to 30 yds wide. The travel routes are all N to S patterns. I will be set up in the middle/edge of the funnel in 3 hemlocks for coverage/camo. This is only 30 yds from where I had an encounter last year with a nice 8 pt, but gives me a better control of the funnel.

Yeah its alot of acerage for just 2 people but theres not much hunting pressure.i only been hunting there for 4 yrs now had a few chances to shoot a big one but things happen to fast and i wasn't ready lol.they just popped out and didn't stick around.ipreyyt set up this year i did some thinning and clearing so now i will be able to at least see them comming.

no cameras as i just don't get there much to view them. I suspose I could just let the camera run till it died and collect the card when I do get there and see what I've been missing. My son and I just went in together on a video camera to try and capture a harvest(s) and he has several cameras out down in S.Ohio at the college hunting area.

I was talking with a couple hunters yesterday (Sept. 26th.) at a Flea market very trusted hunters not story tellers in the least, one of them saw 2 young bucks sparring on his way to the flea market around 8am.

Now along with Whitetailfever's pics this makes the 3rd sparring event i've already heard about this year.

Now that I think about one of my other posts, PA is about 2 weeks early for the fall color changes maybe Mother Nature has another something different for us to figure out/see this fall. The September sparring just seems early, heck they should still be buddies prior to the pre-rut activities?
