Randy and Bruno bow hunted the newly timbered property in Steuben County NY.  Randy connected on a basket 8 point at 5 yards on the logging road below the hemlocks.  Due to the angle of the shot, the arrow single lunged the deer.  The deer traveled all the way to the opposite side of the property before expiring.  The tracking was the longest successful track to date.  The bloodhound Bruno was called in to track the last 100 yards to find the deer.

Bruno cashed in on a huge 4x2 buck at 10 yards from the tree below the patio. After watching the deer hit his mock scraps, it ducked into the brush 10 yards from the stand.  Bruno dropped a double lung shot on the buck and recovered the deer 150 yards away. 

Gun season in NY proved to be difficult for all.  Poor weather with high winds and rain kept the deer at bay.  Bruno lost his favorite tree in the timber cut.  The property dramatically changed due to new roads, down falls and timber waste.  The deer patterns have changed in those affected areas. The Hemlock Highway was fairly active during the high wind conditions.   One of us fell out of the tree.... again!  Glen hunted the large buck up at the patio only to see him follow 3 does north.  Randy missed a perfect opportunity to harvest an 8 point at 30 yards from the blind below the patio.  That deer had X-ray vision to see into the blind. And the “Deer Whisperer” chimed in on everything we were doing wrong. (Jen)

In Ohio, Glen took a doe from his new stand on the ridge.  Jen and Randy were blanked for the season.
