With a little luck and a lot of hard work, I was able to punch my tag on public land in New York.

My New York deer season started weeks ago with a scouting mission at Bear Spring Mountain WMA in the Catskills. I had never hunted in New York before and my only option was public land. While the Empire State isn't known for record breaking bucks, it does have large stretches of public hunting land, so I had plenty of deer to roam.
