As I start to think about my upcoming southern deer season, I find my mind wandering back to northern New York where I grew up. I remember red or green wool coats, lever guns, big woods, spruce and hemlock, and rolling terrain, deer camp, snow, tags on the back of your coat, partridge (grouse) in the woods. My experience where I live in the south is very different now. Dogs, buckshot, hunt clubs, flat terrain and crop land. So, any Adirondack or Tug Hill guys who can tell me if my memories are just those of a nostalgic middle aged guy or is it still a really unique hunting experience up there? I certainly kill more deer down here, but the pull of the Northcountry is especially strong this year.
