this morning i saw 4 bucks standing next to the guard rail in the field on rt31 south just past Clinton Ford. it looked like they were going to cross 31. Man one of them was a nice 10 pointer. tall and wide rack. looks awesome in velvet.

Woj, I see those bucks there all the time, they pretty much live around the cemetery. In the evening they hang out by where the comfort inn is going to be built. My wife and I stopped one day and watched them for a good ten minutes. One of these days I have to get a few pics of them. Too bad we can't hunt there.

Yeah i always see them there as well. did you ever see the family of Foxes that lie around on the north bound side? this one big buck i haven't seen before. there is a guy who hunts by rutland hardware. he must go down in that patch by the river. he must do good down there.

a friend of mine used to hunt it. but it was a pain he said because of going through security all the time.

I haven't seen the foxes, but there are two big bucks in there that are nearly identical. I had asked about that patch and was told by a Clinton cop that it wasn't legal to hunt, moreover most of it is well within 450ft of the houses across the river. I abided by his warning since the cops always hang out there to give speeding tickets. :(

Hey Stealthy, i saw a beautiful buck yesterday in along 31 where they want to build the Comfort Inn. I only saw the rack from the side. It was a six or eight but the points were real tall.

I was sitting at the light at grayrock on 31 and off to the left out of that thick brush by the new homes came 6 deer and they ran up the other side by Martin's funeral home. They were 2 bucks, 2 does and 2 fawns. The bucks had small racks. Probably only 4 pointers but they were out of velvet.

Did you ever drive around by the State Police bulding and then into the Exxon facility of Rt 78 and then back onto Rt 31 by the HS? I have seen upwards of 100+ deer back in there and I am sure some locals or cops are hunting these deer.

When I am coming home from PA I see about 20-30 deer in that large field. There has to be some bucks in there, and maybe even a few large ones, but it doesnt look like they have much cover, only a few hedgerows.

My buddy was only able to hunt there because his accountant got him in there. His accountant hunted there and i guess they were looking for more hunters to take some of the deer out.
