        10/1/14:  The farmer’s are starting to chop their cornfields as I have been seeing the big transport trucks going by the place today.  Dreary and cloudy all day today but I am still picking tomatoes from the garden.  My broccoli plants that are still in the ground are still producing the small satellite heads and was able to pick another small bucketful today.  Today was opening day of bow season and I had planned on going out but I woke up at 7:30 and that took care of that!

 

I read an article in the October 2014 Pennsylvania Game News that states that since the legalization of the crossbow in 2009 their archery license sales have grown by more that 10%.  The article further states that throughout the archery season the crossbow hunters are responsible for about half of the antlered and antlerless deer harvested in any yearly deer season.  This condition has occurred over a five year period.  I wonder if we will see the same thing here in New York?

 

        10/6/14:  Merlyn and I got the cabin all cleaned up for the fall housekeeping.  Washed the windows inside and out, chased most of the cobwebs away and wiped down all of the flat dust collecting surfaces.  This morning I swept the leaves off the porch and raked the leaves from the parking space.  The final job was to clear the leaves from the rain gutter to help keep the rain barrel full if it rains.  Now we will stay away until the end of the month just prior to when Butch arrives on November 1st.

 

In any event, I have enough to do to get the garden cleared up and get the garlic planted for next year’s growing season.  We started the wood stove here at the house (after removing a gallon or so of creosote from the stove and stove pipe) and the wood heat certainly feels good as the night time temps have been in the mid-thirties for the past two days.

 

        10/7/14:  I spent the major part of the day pulling up our eighteen tomato plants and loading them into the van.  Although we escaped the full thrust of the tomato blight this year, it is still good practice to remove the tomato plants to someplace some distance from your garden site.  Our tomato crop was the best that we have had in several years and we are going to enjoy using this year’s harvest.

 

I am going to have to build new tomato cages for next spring.  My current ones are being recycled as I made them about fifteen years ago from horse fencing that had 4” x 6” openings.  They worked very well but the environment and rust has pretty much done them in.

 

        10/8/14:  I should be getting a shipment of arrow shafts in from one of my suppliers today.  If they get here I will be fletching stock arrows to replace finished arrows sold during recent weeks.  We also have a few customers scheduled for the next few days so should be busy in the archery shop.  During lax times I have plenty of outside work to keep me busy in order to be ready for winter.

 

The up coming weekend (Columbus Day – Saturday, Sunday and Monday) will be the scheduled youth hunt for 14 and 15 year old hunters hunting with qualified mentors.  This special hunt will allow junior hunters to take a deer of either sex with a gun while being closely monitored by a qualified adult hunters.  During the 2012 Youth Hunt 1,411 deer were taken with 61% of the eligible youth hunters participating.

 

        10/9/14:  Today was the day for the second delivery of apples at the Amish store on Monticello Road so Margaret and I spent the morning ferrying apples from there to here to put four bushel in our winter storage.  We have two bushel of Northern Spys and two more of Cortland’s so it will be apple pie time once again!  Margaret and I fitted in well with the crowd of “white hairs” picking up apples and it occurred to me that most people under the age of sixty do not have the skills to make either apple sauce or apple pies!  Sign of the times I expect.

 

We didn’t have too many dahlias planted this year and I spent some time this afternoon digging the root balls and cleaning them off for storage.  As soon as I get the gladiola bulbs dug and put away I will have all of the digging and putting away done for another year.  The weather man is calling for clear skies and 70’s for the weekend so I will be able to get my garlic planted and mulched for next spring.

 

        10/10/14:  33 degrees this morning but sunny and spent the morning raking leaves in the backyard.  Because the prevailing winds typically are from the west I have to rake to the east and throw them over the fence.  Nasty job but better now than in the spring when they are wet and rotted from the winter snows!

 

        10/11/14:  The garlic is all planted!  It was a cold chore but it always is when you have to plant in the fall and I guess that mid-October qualifies as the fall season.

 

I had a call yesterday from an archer who lives in the Syracuse area regarding getting started in traditional archery.  He made arrangements to come down today and after making the trip left for home with enough information and equipment to get started with a “purer” form of our sport.

 

        10/12/14:  Twenty six degrees this morning and the grass on the back lawn was white and frosty.  Worked at clearing out the front garden so it looks more presentable until it gets covered with snow.  Worked at finishing up mowing the back lawn and used the clippings to mulch the section where I planted the garlic.

 

        10/13/14:  Still have the front lawn section to mow.  Although it is overcast it doesn’t feel like it is going to rain.  An archer from South Carolina ordered a set of plain limb bolts and he has the honor of being the first mail order customer for the month of October! 

 

It makes me wonder at the practical aspects of it all……it costs us $70.00 a year for website hosting and another $50.00 a month for internet service which comes to a total of $670.00 a year.  Of course this gives us an international forum for our business but the profits from our mail order business certainly does not pay the overhead cost of the exposure.  Advertising has always been like that:  “Damned if you do; damned if you don’t!”

 

I harvested all of my carrots and beets and all the garden contains now is some kale and that is a really tough plant (it has been frozen three times and still looks good).

 

        10/14//14:  All of the chipmunks and squirrels have disappeared from our backyard feeding station.  The leaves are just about off the trees and Margaret thinks that perhaps a hawk has taken up station in the area which is keeping them away.  Another mystery to be solved….  

 

        10/15/14:  Merlyn and I got to the cabin this morning and re-stacked some firewood.  I also managed to clean out the toilet and gave the kitchen sink a once over.  Swept all of the leaves off the front porch and now the hunting camp is officially ready for Butch’s arrival on November 1st.  Took a walk out on the dam and found a well defined deer trail crossing the dam so I should be able to get across without too much trouble (although I am probably twice as wide as a whitetail)!

        9/22/14:  We saw eight turkeys this morning on the east side of the big field by the cabin.  A nasty, rainy morning and the migrating geese had already left the pond and seeing the turkeys was another plus (first ones this year!).

 

Had a busy day today……reconditioned six carbon arrows, made and installed string and bus cable on a Bowtech bow,  fletched two dozen arrows for stock, cut and pointed half a dozen arrows for the Bowtech customer and generally just had a busy day.

 

        9/23/14:  Underwent the catheterization process and the doctor found two blocked arteries but was unable to clear either one of them.  He felt however that the condition would ease with medication changes and would be discussing his findings with my cardiologist and his assistant.  So it will be a wait and see for a few days.

 

        9/24/14:  Started bidding on a 66”/RH/25#/Bear Victor Patriot  target bow on eBay for a customer in Vermont.  Hope we can get at a reasonable price as it has a couple of sight mounting holes on the inside of the riser.  Lovely sunny day today and weather man promises mid-seventies and no rain until next Tuesday. 

 

        9/25/14:  Did not get the bow as I put an upper limit on my bidding at $201 and it went for almost $240.  I won’t imply that eBay sellers are unscrupulous or dishonest but one has to be cautious buying used bows.  A certain portion of the sellers cannot reliably check a recurve for straightness or potential delaminations making cross country auctions a somewhat “iffy” business.

 

I went to the local clinic this morning for blood tests in the aftermath of the catheterization.  I spoke with my good friend Bill Brust later this afternoon and found that he just had a heart valve replaced at the age of 84!  He was quite pleased with the results and his surgeon told him he has twenty years left.  He said, "But I will be 104!"  I told him that when he hit a hundred Willard Scott would put his mug on a Smuckers Jam jar.  It seems a shame that at a certain age all we have to talk about is our ailments!

 

        9/26/14:  The outdoor 3D season will finish up on the 28th with shoots at Cassety Hollow, Oxford and Tri-Town. The weather man predicts 78 degrees on Sunday which is true Indian Summer weather for the month of September!  Amazingly we have had only one frost this month and the fall foliage is becoming quite wonderful.

 

Lenny is determined to take a trip to Hamburg, PA to visit the Cabella’s store there.  Scott and Christopher will be going along and I expect to join them as well.  Of course a ten hour road trip won’t leave too much time for the visit but I hope to see my godson Woody Handelong who works part time in their gun department.  I haven’t seen him in seven or eight years so I am looking forward to this final trip of the year.

 

        9/29/14:  We left at 6:30 AM for our trip to Cabela’s and arrived at about 11:30.  The mountain in the middle of the store is just unreal and filled with full body mounts of North American big and small game and is a diorama that puts museum displays to shame.  They also have a Deer room featuring whitetails, mule deer, blacktails and other sub-species of deer.  Also included is a display of African game animals in another part of the store along with a fish tank/aquarium as well.  (The fish tank was the one thing I didn’t see!)  I got to spend a little time with my godson Woody and he works the Gun Department part-time two days a week and seems to love his job there.   Seeing the amount of money that that company spent on this facility it is easy to see why Cabela’s is the premier sporting goods retailer in the United States!

 

Doug Palmer blocked up the fallen maple tree at the start of the cabin road and transported all of the wood down to the cabin.  (He stopped me last Friday morning and said that he promised Butch that he would take care of it before hunting season.)  He was good for his word and Butch will have some wood splitting to occupy his time during his twelve day hunting vacation.

 

The southern zone bow season opens on Wednesday so Merlyn and I spent the morning knocking down the spider webs and giving the place a good cleaning.  I still have to wash all of the windows inside and out and wash all of the flat surfaces on the furniture and the cabin will be clean and ready for Butch to show up on November 1st.

          September is going to be a very busy month…….Margaret and I have exactly six scheduled trips relative to health care which means that we will have at least six days that will be definitely non-productive time.  It will also be a heavy month of canning tomatoes and getting the garden closed out for another year.

 

          Cabbages and peppers are maturing and waiting for the first projected frost to occur.  I have 24 hills of potatoes to dig, clean and get into root cellar storage.  Our cauliflower has not formed heads yet so I cannot see them producing much more than a spot in the compost pile.

 

          Margaret and I were able to get established with the Bassett Clinic in West Winfield so now we have a “close by” primary physician since our previous primary retired in June.  In the process of my examination it was noted that I had heavy wax buildup in my right ear.  This exciting discovery resulted in me having both ears flushed out with equally exciting results:  I can now hear again with my right ear!  Not great hearing but much better than being stone deaf in one ear.

 

9/11/14:  It showered in the night and is overcast and showering during the day.  I had planned on starting to dig the potatoes but do not care much about digging in the mud.  I made an appointment to get the muffler fixed on the van and have it inspected and serviced at the same time (it is overdue for service and not quite due for the yearly inspection).

 

9/12/14:  Today Merlyn and Summer had to go to the doggie dentist.  I just got Merlyn home after getting fourteen teeth pulled.  He doesn’t seem particularly happy but he is recuperating in the crib.  When Margaret calls again I will go back and get her when the vet Is finished up with Summer.  When dogs get old they get toothless just like we do!  Everyone is home again and Summer had only two teeth pulled (small front ones) so we have two dogs fixed up for awhile.

 

I dug about half of my potatoes and found over half of them had been eaten in the ground….never seen anything like it.  Margaret suggested that it was moles doing the dirty work so guess that I will have to do a bit of research and certainly will move the potatoes to another part of the garden next year.

 

9/13/14:  Merlyn has just four teeth left, two on the bottom front and two molars on the top and bottom on the right side of his jaw.  He can still eat but everything has to be small enough to swallow so he is doing fine.  We were outside for “last call” and heard a coyote yipping on the other side of the dam.  This morning we heard a turkey out behind the cabin and when we left to go home two doe ran across the field in front of the van.  First coyote in months, the first turkey this year and the deer are starting to get their winter coats now.  We are now starting to get migrating geese on the pond to take the place of our resident geese and it is good to hear them talking at night.

 

Lenny will be picking me up at eleven AM today for a trip to the Bass Pro shop store in Auburn, NY.  I am looking forward to the trip as a few years ago I sold my collection antique compound bows to them for display at that store location.  The bows were representative of the engineering design improvements from 1970 through 1990 and I will be interested to see if they ever did anything with the collection. 

 

Enjoyed the day and found that the Auburn store did have five of my antiques compounds on display.  I did have to search to find them and they weren’t displayed in a manner that anyone would learn anything by seeing them!  Oh well, they served that purpose hanging here in our archery lanes for the years that we displayed them here.

 

9/16/14:  Visited my cardiologist on Monday and he advised me that I had a 90% blockage in one of my heart arteries and would have to have a cardiac catherterization on September 23rd.  The report says the left circumflex stenosis (whatever that is) so I guess I will be doing that next Tuesday.  I can't wait!

 

9/17/14:  Finished digging the potatoes today along with picking all of the tomatoes that were ready to come inside for final ripening.   Now the weather guys are calling for frost on Thursday night so I guess I will have to get the tag ends of squash, cucumbers and peppers.  Everything else can stand it!

 

We are currently out of internet/TV and telephone so it may take awhile to get this loaded up.

          I got to the club grounds around 11 AM on Friday and got all my stuff set up.  That afternoon Jim VanGiesen who is the club’s archery director purchased a several items of my inventory to use as door prizes.  In addition he provided me with breakfast and lunch meal tickets for my use on Saturday and Sunday.  By the time I left on Friday there were about 20 people signed up for the weekend’s festivities. 

 

It rained all night on Friday and was still showering on Saturday morning.  A good contingent of shooters arrived in the morning and early afternoon and because of the rain the club’s $6.00 all you can eat breakfast was very popular with the shooters!  Most hung around inside the clubhouse until noon when the rain finally stopped.  My merchandise sales were brisk with the captive audience and I made several custom Flemish strings while being peppered with questions regarding string making techniques.

 

Sunday was somewhat slower but by the time that I packed up to come home I had sold two bows (the first was pre-sold during my trip to the Stump Shoot) and two dozen arrows along with a bunch of accessory items.  The event drew a total of 88 archers of which eleven were “first timers” at the event.  After a two year hiatus from the vendor circle, I really enjoyed the weekend.

 

          Our tenant farmer on the cabin grounds took the second cutting off the fields and was leaving with the round bales when I went in to the cabin last night (Tuesday).  All of my resident geese have left the pond for richer territories as it is now silent at night except for frogs talking.  I kind of miss seeing the geese on a daily basis but when the southern migration starts there will be five hundred to a thousand birds on the pond nightly until it freezes up when deer season comes around.

 

          Thursday I visited the ophthalmology clinic for follow-up testing and found that my glaucoma has not advanced any and was scheduled for another checkup in six months.  Shipped my last Hill Country youth longbow to a customer in Parish, NY (it was seen at OxTAR).  Later in the evening we delivered a Pride Longbow to fill another order taken at the Oxford shoot.  Earlier I harvested our corn patch in front of the house.  The ears were all small but very sweet and they turned into five bags of creamed corn for the freezer!

 

          Archery Business magazine prints the numbers for bowhunters in North America on a yearly basis and tracks these numbers on a ten year basis.  This year’s figures note that U.S. figures are down somewhat but the totals for North America still are at the 3.6 million mark.  Michigan is the number one state with a reported number of 328,665.  Number two is Pennsylvania with 325,041 and third is Wisconsin with 266,573.  Fourth place is Ohio with 215,000 followed by New York with 194,663 licensed bowhunters.  New York is down from a high of 218,735 in 2011 and we will wait and see what effect the legalization of the xbow for the last two weeks of the archery season does to the numbers.

 

          As we get closer to hunting season I have to report that I have been seeing fewer deer than usual this past summer.  Fewer than normal and much spookier than normal as well.  Perhaps the cars and trucks are doing too good a job as whitetail deer managers (I noted another dead doe this morning on the way home from the cabin)!  In any event my hunting partner will arrive on November 1st to bowhunt with me for two weeks.

 

          One day last week while I was working in the archery shop I noticed a very large moth trying to get out of the window.  Margaret had the skills and took a picture of it and it will appear in this week’s pictures.  She also did the research to identify it and it is a Catocala brisies moth that was first cataloged by W. H. Edwards in 1864.  The fact is it is still living on the wall by the window in the shop as I write this paragraph.

 

          The settlement check came from the insurance company and though our deductable was $500 the amount will cover most of our expenditures for "must have" things.  Whatever is left over will just have to wait or we will do without.
