It’s Deer Season: ‘Hard to believe that summer is over, fall is here and so is deer season. Northern Zone Archery opens Sept. 27 and while this gives the northern tier hunters a four-day jump ahead of the south it’s not what it used to be. This hunter really liked the old four-day season on the previous year’s tag (when I had one). There was just some incentive to it.
But, times change and tomorrow is still opening day and there’s no doubt hunters will be in the woods. Food seems to be sporadic. Some apple trees have fruit, others are dried up and we’re hearing very little reports of any serious mast crop like acorns or beechnuts. The foliage in parts of the Adirondacks is taking shape. As always, tell us what you’re seeing along the likes of such things and please be safe, especially in tree stands, send us a photo if you have some luck.
ADKHUnter is now on Facebook: That’s right! And we had a great first week on Facebook. Thanks to those who have join in with us. The new Facebook page is set up to be an enhancement to ADKHunter.com. The goal is to get folks interacting in the Visitor’s tab (down, and to the right of the Timeline) about what’s going on in the woods, thoughts on issues that impact hunting in our region (and sometimes beyond) and to share a few stories. You’ll also notice the ability to share certain posts on this website on your own Facebook page. That task is still a work in progress but is up and running with a few posts that we hope you’ll find informative. Enjoy, and please drop in often.
