Dave Eder’s 2009 Bowhunting Blog – Week 1

I have very high-hopes for the 2009 Bowhunting Season! I guess I have the same plans every year but this year seems like it could be the best ever. I live in New York City which doesn’t sound like a great place for a bowhunter but I’ve found that it is really one of the best places.

I’ve got trophy deer within two hours in every direction and in four different states. This year I will be hunting New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

NEW JERSEY
The New Jersey land is a beautiful piece of property that my hunting buddy got us permission to hunt. We have permission to hunt about 80 acres of land…woods and fields. We put the camera at a natural bottle neck (a small strip of land that leads from the woods to a river/food supplies)

The Camera location/Treestand Location is right between a river, two fields and a prime bedding/staging  location. As you can see from the photos, there are plenty of deer walking by.

This photo was taken in early September...I was surprised the buck was still in velvet.

Every year we have a pack of does and fawns running around the woods. Usually, these are the only deer you see. Of course on the opening day this year, we needed to fill doe tags first and we didn't see one of these girls.

We've got a bunch of pictures of these two bucks hanging out together. Both my hunting partner and I saw this Piebald last year and werent sure if we'd shoot it. It put on some good antler growth and now we are both hoping to get a shot at it.

What do you think...would you take this buck?

The camera I used was the Reconyyx RC60 – Reconyx RapidFire Convert Color IR High Output Camera

It was very easy to set up and I got hundreds of great photos from the pre-season.

The coolest deer that showed itself to the camera was a piebald buck. I hunted a week ago with no luck but now I know what I’m looking for. I’ll be hunting Jersey again next week.

New York
Hunting Long Island, New York is really interesting. I primarily hunt a 4-acre piece of woods that a friend owns. To most people hunting four acres sounds crazy, but believe it or not this piece of property has a ton of deer on it (it is surrounded by corn and a vineyard and there are not a lot of woods around the northfork or long island so this little spot is a tru honey hole. I’ll be putting a camera out on this land on sunday

Pennsylvania
My brother Rob recently moved to Pa, near the Pocanos and has a lot of deer running around his woods. I will be getting out there at the end of october beginning of November. He’s been scouting a lot and i’ll post some pics of Pa soon as well.
