Congratulations.  Nothing like getting the piece of land you wanted to hunt.  We expect pictures later, BTW. Good Luck hunting there!

First of all hello to everyone, newbie here saying hello.

Well I finally shot my first deer after 3 years of trying! A spike which I actually thought was a doe until I walked up on him.

I hunted Peekskill Hollow Road in Putnam county on a friend's property. Got him at about 80 yards with my 11-87 and an Accu-Tip slug.

I previously watched a video on how to gut him and everything went smoothly! Brought him to the butcher (Amato's in Katonah, I'm sure you guys in lower NYS are familiar with him). He's in the freezer.

I've hunted turkeys for some time but just recently got into deer. I think I'm gonna build a nice blind on my brother's deer littered property up in Wingdale, in Dutchess County for next year. Saw a monster up there during bow season, hopefully he'll be there next year.

Well I've still got my doe tag! Back into the woods next weekend.

Good to be here.

And, glad you're here. Welcome.

Congrats on your first deer. Hope you get that monster next year.

Congrats on your deer!... I live a few minutes from there. If you hunt in Dutchess you may want to check out Malafy's Meat Processing. They are in Red Hook - about 30 minutes north of Peekskill Hollow. They charge a little more to process ($100 instead of $80 like Amatos) but it is worth it. It is a very clean place and they package the meat a lot better than Amatos.
