Boston NY today… [11/28/10]

by wnydeerhunter on November 28, 2010

Lots of tracks… low wind, chilly but not freezing and some sun… this is all I found out there today…

This tree is about 6 inches in diameter… and the tracks tell me he’s pretty good size…

Maybe I’ll get back out there and see about harvesting him.

Good luck and stay safe.

Cheers!

The hills were breathtakingly colored with reds, yellows and greens as the fall harvest time began in the little town of Canisteo, NY. The [...]
