I have more tags than I can fill this year.  I was approved for a doe tag in 3M (but denied in 6G), either sex bow/muz and doe bow/muz tags, and my firearms buck tag, plus I can use last year's bow tag for pre-season bow up north.  I cannot complain can I?
 
I feel that I can take one or even two does early in the season, fill the freezer and get the nerves setled up.  Plus I feel like I can take a smaller buck and without worrying about giving up on the chance for a big one.  It really is a great feeling and I am very excited about this year.  This will be the first year that I will use all forms of hunting weapons: bow; muzzleloader; and firearms.  Wish me luck!

  It's the last day of NYS muzzleloader season Tues. the 16th. I have one more tag left to fill and then I will have done the grand slam of the season. 4 tags recorded so far and the last one I have left is either sex muzzleloader to fill.
  Took a doe last night at 90 yards with the ML @ 4:30pm. 2 minutes before official sunset. Cut that one close.
  The Powerbelt did it's job. Mushroomed real nicely matter in fact. She went about 75 yards and was down for the count. Had to skin her out last nite cause of the warm weather.

SS-
  How do those powerbelts group for you?  I gave up on them but now I'm thinking maybe it was the 2 year old pellets I was using causing the inconsistent groups.  I have since switched to triple f triple 7 loose powder with good results. 
  My son was open water fishing a bay up your way during the winter last year and was getting some good perch(numbers and size).

Joel,
  Headed out this afternoon. Be out in the woods about 3 and see if I can fill the last one.
  Taking the meat down below the border and having this one processed and smoked too. Took some down a couple weeks ago, fantastic. So we'll do it again. Yup, the freezer is getting full. Might have to purchase another. My only thought now is a [:@]power outage.

Beagleman23,
  I really can't tell you. I shoot 3 pellets along w/ the 225 gr. hollowpoint out of my .45. Must be it works. Where I held, I hit. Put one of those BDC scopes on but haven't had the oppurtunity to test it past 100 yards. Gotta get a bigger target down range, easier to see. Comes with age!
  Before season at 50 yrds I was 2"s high but out to 100 it was 1 1/2" high. Therefore I left it alone.
  Biggest thing I did while setting up the BDC was clean the barrel on every shot. Sure, it's a pain but the results were constant. We did our patterning in August. Not rushed at the range then. Vs waiting til almost season.
  What bay was he at?

Irondiquot sp?  Bait shop and ramp right there.  Near a bridge.  20' of water. Live minnows.  Fellow employee went on ice and caught some also but didn't do as well.  He was shallower.

Beagleman23,
  Are you talking above Rochester? I'm a long ways from where you're talking about the bay. Like about 3-3 1/2 hours away. Think Binghamton.
