Deer Baiting In NY/Old Pictures.

 Going through a bunch of pictures recently as,I have to move soon- ( probably  just a little Studio- 1 Room and a Bathroom). One mid October  day while Pheasant Hunting the Orange County " Black Dirt" area very near to the New Jersey Border,I came upon a large pile of Deer Corn  within range of a Deerstand.

  Now this area has a Town Road that looks just like a Farmers access road. It serves as both and only the Locals know about it. 

  I hunt and Skeet shoot an area that many in the know also use. Plenty of Deer back here. Wild Turkey as well. This is where,I Killed my best Gobbler- " Rodan" with Needle Spurs just a Smidge over 1 1/2"s.

  Pheasants are released nearby and make back to this area over time. And so it was that,I came upon this Corn Pile. My Dog got a good Sniff around it. Back there a good 1 hour. I was back the next day and the Corn Pile was completely  gone. Some pics. Remember- pics or it did not happen.

That reminds me of a time when I was hunting Windfall Creek State Forest many years ago. There were a few inches of fresh snow so I decided to do some still hunting. Didn't see any deer tracks for the first few hours which was bizarre. Then suddenly there were many tracks, all heading in the same direction. So I decided to follow the tracks and they converged to a corn pile. Saw 2 doe but didn't feel right to try harvesting one so I went home.

  Thanks for Sharing your story. Very interesting to say the least.

Move farther north of that city. Lots of public land and cheaper to live.  

What city? Newburgh? If you meant NYC, that's like Binghamton to Syracuse distance. He's probably 70+ miles from NYC

I'd like to change my answer.  Move south of NY to the United States free zone.   Even better idea. (Not Jersey). Lol

 That whole area both North and South of the NY/NJ Border is extremely  Rural and Hilly. And a Greenhorn could get lost easily in some areas. Plenty of both State Parks and State Forests on both sides . Plenty of my Beloved Public Lands  right here.
