I didn't mean to be a smart azz, just honest? Especially when planning a trip, you want the most accurate and updated information you can get to make the trip pleasurable and worry free. Seeing folks posting on different threads asking the same info normally throws up a red flag and questions the hunters abilities? Sorry if I offended you in any way.
I have a brother-in-law who hunts in your state, you have some really nice bucks down there.
I dropped a nice 7 point on our regular season opener yesterday. If you plan hunting NY we have a LOT of state forest to choose from.
