    I don't doubt it. Lots opportunities in the finger lakes region. I use to love hunting Monte.

    I sometimes hunt in Auburn... at Bass Pro Shop. Sounds like you're an urban hunter saying 'street' verses road. Sometimes that can be extremely productive.

    I’d do the first 10 years over again. The 14 years after that, not so much.

    Welcome to the club. Been out since '68... still going through the 'process'. Hopefully soon I'll be at a % that better represents the sequela that my service-connected TBIs have caused or worsened. The VA in Syracuse is nice - been there a few times.

    Are there deer in the Monte?
    I've hunted Queen Catherine's swamp in Montour Falls/Watkins Glen before and have seen the dandy's in there.
