OK here's the gig.

1. You must post here the date & time I will shoot my first deer ( buck & doe) during the upcoming Pa. & Ny. archery seasons. For example:

I say Grizzly will harvest a buck on November 4th at 3:58 pm. & he will harvest a doe on October 28th at 5:00 pm.

2. The Winners in each category will receive a $100 gift card from the business of their choice.

So all are on an equal playing field I will tell you that mostly I hunt on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays & Fridays. I will also tell you that I have committed to shoot a good buck in Ny. State.

You have till midnight the day before the the Pa. opener to post your time & date.

Questions? Post them now. This is meant to be fun and I think it is cut & dry.

If you choose to say I will NOT harvest a buck or doe this archery season, that is also acceptable. If more than one say the same and it happens that way the winner will be determined by drawing of names eligible.

I will also tell you that I have committed to shoot a good buck in Ny. State.

What do you consider a good buck? Please explain your definition of a good buck . When and how much have you practiced this year . . :D :D :D

07-22-2008, 10:40 AM
Holding out for a good buck is practicing AR, now I thought from your posts you would rather shoot spikes and 4 pts???!!!!!! Embracing the spirit of AR in a state where you can shoot anything over 3"s . Well done Gary!!!!!! :shock: :D :lol: :o

I saw Gary's belly at the Chapman Pk event this winter. Even with winter clothes on, I could tell it takes a substantial quantity of venison to maintain such a profile.

Now further, if hunting NY, where he can shoot smaller racks, ain't NO WAY his tummy is going to let his mind over rule his growling.

I think he will get a better buck in PA than NY. I am with you on that one Coalbuck, seems a little inconsistent. But this late in the year, when your freezer probably has no more venison, that hunger can make your mind twist things up a bit.

I will have to check my seasons dates and then come up with a guess.

07-22-2008, 01:23 PM
I have an idea of the general date but I don't have any idea how much Gary gets into the woods. I need to find out the dates of the NY season and I will post my guess

That is not my belly Zen, that is where I carry the Grey Goose! :lol:

I have promised TST & Smitty (NY Landowner) that I will not take a Buck that is not at least a nice looking six at the early part of the season. I intend to wait for a big boy during the rut. As to does?? One presents itself in NY and the arrow flies!

The same goes for Pa.! Man I hate letting any shooter deer pass! All I can see is Loins, roast, sausage, burger walking toward me.

OK I admit that I am weak and who the hell knows when I might let that arrow fly!!!

maybe you should be having a first miss contest instead. i hear you miss a lot. lol will check the dates and post my pick.


07-22-2008, 09:23 PM
Gary you will not get a Pa archery buck! You will harvest a nice 6pt on the first day of archery in NY! How often do you hunt Archery in PA ?

Grizzly Gary
07-23-2008, 04:40 PM
It varies year by year j-k. It is my hope to hit Penns woods at least 4 or 5 times and the same number for NY archery. As stated Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays are best for me. I will also say that I generally hunt the afternoon hours.

These are all just generalizations though. Sometimes an opportunity to hunt arises and you take it.

Grizz can you hunt on Sunday in Pa. now? Would be nice!!
If so then I may need to check the MOON BEAM CHARTS :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

07-24-2008, 01:05 PM
A 6pt or better hmm . Where you hunt in Pa is it 3 or 4 to a side law ? No sunday hunting in Pa yet :cry: .
I hear there are a few older deer on Smittys . I will wait to make a prediction still dont Know how much practice you will do . :?

Mighty Mike
07-28-2008, 03:07 PM
to busy looking at the moonbeams instead of watching for deer. thats his problem. i bet he dont get a buck this year with a bow. can i make that my pick. lol


Mighty Mike
07-30-2008, 02:16 PM
ok i will go first. ny buck at 3:45 saturday november 2nd. it will be a 7 point. thats my pick. doe will be ny to on saturday october 11 at 430. make me a winner grizzly.


07-30-2008, 02:33 PM
Grizzly will harvest his first deer, a doe in NY on Oct 22, 2008 at 0930 am. Even though I don't think he will harvest a buck with a bow, I will say Nov 8, 2008 at 3:53 pm. also in NY and it will be a big 6 point.

Grizzly Gary
07-31-2008, 11:19 AM
Best of luck with your picks fellas. If someone wants to say I will not harvest a buck or doe you may do so. If you end up being correct you will win. If more than one of you says the same and are correct I will draw the winner from a hat. You will be making a mistake though.

Now if you were to say Treestandtimmy would not get a buck THAT would be a pretty smart pick! :lol:

08-07-2008, 08:21 PM
I will say the Grizz gets his Doe......October 24 at 4pm, Nice shot a double lunger at 12 yards. He gets his buck, a real nice 8pt Oct 31st at 9pm with his auto....Yikes looks like Gary is Ok, but your gonna need a new ride. :roll: Luckily missed the boat, that will end a good night of fishin on a bad note.

08-15-2008, 10:17 AM
ok i will go first. ny buck at 3:45 saturday november 2nd. it will be a 7 point. thats my pick. doe will be ny to on saturday october 11 at 430. make me a winner grizzly.

Iam sure Mike meant Pa doe since Ny doesnt start until the 14th .
My guess will be Oct 25th @6pm Gary will get his buck in Ny a spike . Gary is to weak he will shoot the first deer in range. 1st shot will be 6yds that he misses .2nd shot will be 13yds to the boiler room .

08-15-2008, 03:41 PM
Well Gary it sounds like your too busy hunting walleye and not scouting deer and setting stands. I say that you will shoot a 4pt in NY on Nov. 2 at 4:20 PM and that will be the only deer you shoot this year.......

Grizzly Gary
09-09-2008, 03:58 PM
Time is running out boys & girls. Got a new bow that me make me an even more deadly archer.


carl milks
09-10-2008, 03:26 PM
Doe Oct 10th @ 1700 hrs, buck on Oct 31 @ 1755 hrs. New bow heh? Just remember, "it's a poor carpenter that blames his tools"!!!!!

09-10-2008, 07:46 PM
ok.. what the heck! I say you will get a nice chunky doe on the 2nd day of PA Archery at.. 3:23pm

For NY I say the 4th day at 5:02 you will get a lil bigger then last years.. 4 pt!

Yep just a random guess!! ^^ Cant win it if ya don't try people!!

09-11-2008, 01:31 PM
Sorry Gary, but my vote is that you WILL NOT harvest a buck or doe this 2008 archery season in either NY, or PA. not that i'm trying to jinx ya, but this my vote.. :D

Grizzly Gary
09-12-2008, 08:36 PM
HEY SUMMERS! :bootyshake: :lol: :lol: :lol:

One thing I can 100% guarantee is that I will dust at least one deer during archery season NY/PA. :roll: I hope. :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

09-15-2008, 12:43 PM
Guess you'll have to prove me wrong. haha

Grizzly Gary
09-25-2008, 10:51 PM
Wrong you will be O Ye of little faith in the Grizzly one! :wink: :lol:

Time is quickly running out to post your date & time.

09-26-2008, 10:45 AM
NY Doe: October 25 @ 4:49pm.

If you are holding out for a good buck...I will say...

I think if you are waiting for a good buck, it has to be NY! (Haha-Just kidding!) Let's just say you will get a doe with your bow...no buck

09-26-2008, 03:32 PM
I'll also have to go with no buck or doe. Sounds like you won't get out much and if the weather doesn't co-operate or you have a little to much "goose" that's going to make it even harder.

Good luck though.

09-28-2008, 09:44 PM
ok here is my guess pa you will not get a buck or a doe. ny you will not get a buck and you will get a doe on october 18 at 4:30pm good luck

09-29-2008, 12:59 PM
He will kill a doe on Oct 17 at 4:45 pm and he will kill a small buck on Oct25 at 9:05 am both in NY. He will miss a monster Buck in Pa with his bow.

10-02-2008, 05:34 PM
10-13-08 a Pa doe. 10-28-08 a six pointer in PA. Sensing another deer possibly taken with the grill of a chevy truck around halloween.

Grizzly Gary
12-05-2008, 09:33 PM
OK scumbag naysayers! :twisted: Looks like you win! :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted:

Unless I am stupid? :roll: Which is very possible? :roll: Two of you will win the Cabelas' Gift Cards.

I have shot a buck in Pa. & I do not have a doe tag for Pa. and NY doesn't have a late season archery gig as far as I can tell by reading the book. Never hunted it before if they do but I just studied the book to be sure.

Bottom line? You scum win, I lose!!! :twisted: :roll: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If it weren't for Treestandstupid and the QDM gig they do in NY I would have arrowed a Ny 6 or 4 during archery. Course I might have missed?? :shock: :roll: :wink: :lol:

That will teach ya not to put the Woojammy on me for next year ya SCUM!!

I will put your names in a hat to determine the winner. But guess what?

I am going to make you SCUMBAG NAYSAYERS wait a week or two till I draw the winners! :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Kidding aside, thanks all for supporting us here. Will draw the winners this upcoming week. More points on my Cabelas' Card! :lol:

12-06-2008, 09:01 AM
Gary you still can still bow hunt dec8-16 in Ny see link
now go kill something :D

Grizzly Gary
12-06-2008, 09:40 AM
Thanks for the info Treerat. Looking at the book last night I did not see that. :roll:

12-06-2008, 09:57 AM
you can also hunt with your muzzleloader too! I will be out Mon and Tue..

12-07-2008, 09:46 AM
Kinda hated being one of those scumbag naysayers, but i like to win. So that is the reason my vote was no deer at all with a bow. It wasn't that i didn't really have faith in the ole Grizzled one, but was just taking a different approach to the contest. Now i really hope my name is one drawn out of the hat, i don't think there were too many of us that voted that way, and the 100 dollar Cabela's card would make for an awesome Christmas present..........thanks for another great contest Gary!!!!!

Grizzly Gary
12-08-2008, 11:44 AM
Sorry Summers. I some how lost your name for the drawing as well as the rest of the naysayers! :twisted: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

12-08-2008, 01:48 PM
HA HA, well i hope you find it or we'll have to throw the Whammy Jammy on ya again somehow...... :lol:

Mighty Mike
12-10-2008, 11:31 AM
