    Hey everybody. I'm fairly new to bowhunting and brand new to the blog. I've been following Justin & Todd and their youtube videos for bowhunting.com & bowhunt or die for a while now and have absorbed as much as I can from their experiences and am anxious to get out and get a chance at some turkeys & whitetail this season. I live on & hunt a small farm property (30 acres) in upstate NY and have been blessed with permissions from neighbors to hunt their lands as well (200 acres +/- total). Hoping for a chance at this one caught on one of our trailcams.

    Hey, welcome aboard! I am in NE PA now, but grew up way up in the Northern part of NY (Malone area).
    Happy hunting!

    My guess is that since TDY clued him in to you being military, he knows that. :lol:
