3 Important Reminders For Deer Hunters

It is deer season in Western New York and as Thanksgiving weekend approaches, this may be the busiest time in the woods for hunters. The fishing here is excellent with the many lakes, streams and ponds around to find fish.

I have three boys who I plan on introducing hunting and fishing to. It may be a good idea to buy a Lifetime License for your youngsters as well. The prices always seem to be going up and it will pay for itself over the years if they do decide to hunt or fish.

Have a safe and happy and healthy hunting season and the best of luck to you and your family.
