    Unconventional? I'd call it awesome. Congrats!

    On another positive note, the boy who works for me made his very first bow kill tonight. He had been hunting around his house and not seeing much, so I told him where to go in the state land. He had a small doe come in and bed down 36 yards from him. He then proceeded to climb down the tree and stalk to within 12 yards. She stood up and he drilled her. Pretty unconventional, but it worked!

    I have cut up 4 deer since archery opened up in NY, and I can't believe the fat on these deer already! I could he wrong, but I think we re going to have a long winter!

    The farmers almanac predicted a long snowy winter. I know my buck had a good layer of fat on him already.

    Maybe the deer just more / better feed this year than compared to last year? I can only hope...


    With that being said, I have seen a fair amount of black on the Wolly Bugger Catapilers I have seen.

    Not trying to take away f rom what you're sayin but think about it, you stopped him from going into full rut
    He was fat this week, how fat would he have been in 5 weeks after the rut? Bettin he would lost most of it.

    The doe Kelly's uncle got last week had a TON of fat on her...more than I'm use to seeing on deer.

    Hoff, you're 100% spot on.. the buck I ve cut have had fat on them, but that will be gone in 3 weeks.. the amount of fat on a couple of the flatheads I've cut is a lot for this time of the year!

    And we did have a seasonably colder than usual september.... which lead to those deer you cut doing two things..feeding and bedding..
    Now i wont say we wont have a bad winter but that extra fat could be due to the deer puting the extra feed bag on while it was cooler last month.
    THE DEER HERD IN PA IS FINE!!!
    LEGALIZE SUNDAY HUNTING!!!!
    ALLOW INLINES IN THE LATE SEASON!!

    i agree. but as for the wooly buggers i seen 2 today and they were both 85% brown so who knows as long as we have some snow on the ground for bear season. I had a fun hunt yesterday. I sat for a couple hours int he morning but decided to climb down and do some still hunting and within 10 mins i had a 6 point at 50 yards making a rub without a clue he was being watched after he moved out of site i had a 4 pt wind me and crossed the trail at 30 yards. as i crested the to pf the hill and heard some leaves rustle and looked to see a doe sneaking down thru the beech brush right at me. I squatted dwon and when she went into a dip i drew. She popped up at 6 yards but seen me and the only thing i could see clearly was her head and neck so she ran off. I went a little farther and seen another doe that crossed the road and snuck to within 45 yards of another deer and seen it was a spike so i knlet behind a stump and he fed past at 40 yards. the deer are moving alot up here in northern potter since the temps cooled down a bit.
