Christmas is here and for most in New York State it will not be white. Don't worry kids, Santa is well prepared and equipped with a sleigh with wheels! While some of us are dreaming of what Santa might bring under the tree on Christmas day, others are dreaming of being IN a tree the day after.

The deer hunting season has been extended once again this year in portions of New York State. The "Holiday Hunt" will take place the week of Christmas. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced that the season dates for the Southern Zone are 9 consecutive days immediately following the regular season and December 26 through January 1.

A Gift For Hunters

While it may not be the weather we want for Christmas fun, the weather is a GIFT for those who want to hunt for whitetail deer. With cool, crisp mornings and warmer days, it will be comfortable for being in the woods.

Success For Some In New York State

The hunting season seems to zip on by each year. Before you know it, we are ready for Christmas and sharing stories about the bucks we saw, or had on camera and never got to take. However, for one hunter in Western New York, the story has more than the standard "one that got away" ending. In fact, the story for Justin Wallschlaeger continues as the word is spreading about this incredible buck.

For Justin and Jamie Wallschlaeger, hunting is more than brothers bonding and enjoying time in the woods, it is a passion turned part-time profession. These brothers spend a ton of time in the woods and share the success, and losses, in the woods on the show Deer Tippin' TV.

The hunting community in New York State will be sharing these photos and waiting for the episode to drop for the rest of the story about this buck!
