    Moose and Deer hunt

    Another successful season at our Haliburton Hunt Club. In the first five minutes on opening day I was lucky enough to drop a cow and young bull (the only two we saw all week). It continued our stretch of luck of at least one moose for the last six years. With regards to the deer hunt we have not been very lucky. First of all there are not too many deer there as the moose have pushed them out and for the last several years we have been plagued with poor weather. Rain all week, very high winds and temperatures. This year it rained the entire week before the hunt and opening day was a mixture of heavy snow and rain which changed to all rain the next day. The bush and trails were almost impassable and we saw nothing. Wednesday dawned extremely cold, sunny, calm and a little fresh snow. The deer started to move and we managed to get three. It was nice because one of our older hunters who has not shot a deer for many years got two of them and the third was taken by a sixty-eight year old and was his first ever.

    Lake Erie perch fishing

    Went out with a friend today and fished Lake Erie, it took us all day to find some fish, but we ended up ending the day with 37. I got the only double header and the biggest perch. Was a good day out.

    A lot of memories with that shot Smerch! Memories of motoring under the bridge (many cb antennas were broken and bent nets). Setting flat lines as soon as we got out to the lake and trolling west behind the canning factory, no riggers, dipseys or jets. No line counters just big spinning reels and plastic rod holders or many times just holding the rod in your hand for hours and hours. Ahh the simple days when your friends and fellow fishing buddies would be honest and share fishing spots over the cb so everyone enjoyed a fun days fishing.

    Fishing today.

    I’d just leave buddy alone. If he’s fishing illegally then he’ll get busted one day. Why stress over something you can’t control. There’s a ton of water to fish in niagara just pick a new spot.

    Port D Circus

    They still fish there a lot using worms and minnows . I have seen many species of fish caught there over the years , like cats, perch , bass , , trout , etc. Most of the carp fishing was done on the opposite side at Lockhart point ...big carp were always there before they changed the old docks to the new ones. There may be a few sail boats docked in that spot with the red dot Tyler , but it will soon be wide open there . I just got back from Gibby ....verrrry breezy , so I went to a spot that was more windless ...an old spot where I might pick up a grass carp ... Water viz was a little fuzzy and was about 6-7 feet deep . Started with oat - corn pack bait with corn puff after using same to chum . After an hour of no bites , I chummed with maize & used a hair rig with maize . About 30 min. later ....need to pee.... .....walked about 6' from the rod ...unzipped .....and ding -a-ling !!! Alarm bells rang !! Good thing I set the alarm on high alert in the windy conditions ! She/he didn't put up a big fuss ...one nice jump , then came in quietly to my waiting net .....gave it another 30 min. & off to home . Carp went about 8 lbs. ...looked healthy ...nice to see particularly in that spot ....

    Archery moose hunt and Big buck

    I have had this buck on my trail camera for a month but all at night until last week when he showed up twice just before 7pm. I didn't hunt that stand until Saturday morning because the wind was wrong and I didn't want to mess it up. The trailcam showed he had come in that morning 5am and 7:29 the night before...after legal time. Saturday was cool and breezy and I had a feeling he might move early. Sure enough...6 turkeys walked by about 6pm and then I heard a noise and wondered if they were coming back but it was the big guy. He walked by at 20 yards and the Bowtech Reign 7 doesn't miss. It was a quick find before dark and then a bit of a walk back to the truck to get my toboggan. I managed to field dress him and get him in the toboggan and out to the trail but it was tough. Drove my Blazer in close and loaded him in. Wouldn't have been able to do it without the toboggan. Here he is ...

    Yeah , Holland and Kottmeier would be the best, if it is the bridge I think it is. Some good carp fishing down Holland to the north too.

    Fish'n Chips

    True. The recipe is same, but it comes down to consistency of quality. If they cook right and give good portions and have good service, they will always sell well. The same goes with pizza joints. Best places do it right, but all the time. Sometime with that depends who is working that shift.

    Fish'n Chips

    Young kids don't seem to want to work if they don't involve the KEY BOARD.. Same thing as you say, Friend of mine was at the Wood Show in Ancaster on the weekend, walking too the booth to pay and l see him, said thought to were working at the Royal in Toronto this weekend. Answer was yes, but could not get help here for his wife as the boys were at the Royal so he had to come here. Question, why did you not give me a call seeing as l live 15 min away and retired???. Did not think as l was in a rush to supply here. Ok guess what l did all weekend 🙄😉 Helped them out so he could go back to the Royal and work his booth there. 😎

    November meet up?

    Rennie pond past the finish line building has a long stretch of rocky shoreline ( could be windy there) . I have fished there with floats (minnows,worms) , tossed lures (weeds) and fished bottom for carp & a chance to get pike or perch . The water needs to clear up more to have better fishing . Another option ...(I have been map snooping) ....is the Dain City area . I haven't shore fished there for years so maybe someone knows some shore spots to fish and park vehicles . I used to fish near the boat club on the west side . The Forks Rd . bridge is gone so we would have to come in from the west side (Hwy 58 exit) . The water depth varies.... at the club being 5' deep and drops gradually to 30 ft as you go south . ....mostly perch & pike and parking along the roadway .....If there are some parking spots , the east side could be another option .

    November meet up?

    Wish I could join you. Queenston that weekend will definitely be rammed. Browns are there now and bows will follow. Bottom bouncing does require space and timing with everyone’s cast so not sure how that would work out for you if it’s a large group. Spots are limited there. More space in the whirlpool but that’s gonna be a hike and a float setup of some kind. Have fun wherever you guys go!

    What a storm!

    No house is stable till it’s bricked or fully finished. These houses were only framed. Even supports don’t hold them up when the winds are 100km/hr +. Then you have to think did the framers even brace the house properly. Last year same thing happened on the same site. Cheap labour= cheap work it’s happened to other builders also but seems it happens here more then normal.

    The Old Scow

    I read this news paper from England and many articles is news from this side of the big water . I find most of the news they print about Canada & the U.S. has better coverage with photos & videos , and of course the comments ! This old scow has been sitting there long before my papa was born . The power of wind and water is amazing ! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7643843/Niagara-Falls-iron-scow-moves-time-101-years-moving-closer-Niagara-Falls-ledge.html

    I hope your back heals up quickly Boogs , I have had the same problem lately ....overdoing it with some lifting lately . Taking it easy for a week has helped ....keeping my fingers crossed after lifting battery out of the boat today ! I have posted deer apples here and hunters picked them up shortly after . My huge delicious apple tree is now gone .....miss the shade and great tasting apples ! here's a shot of some "deer" apples .....not even half of the yield I got every year ...

    Man that sucks, the drug epidemic is to blame most likely. Car checkers around my area all the time looking for anything they can find for the next fix. Homeless signs at every intersection looking for handouts for the next fix. Its really bad, I feel for your loss.

    Woohoo. My friend Alain who does taxidermy almost done my mount. It has been mounted and drying for a week. Less than 3 weeks!. He has final touchups and I'll get it Saturday. I will post more pictures then. If anyone needs a deer or bear done he does fabulous work. PM me if you want his number.

    Deer & Ambulance Collide

    The fact that the deer are in rut is much more the reason for them travelling and crossing roads than hunting. The shotgun hunts surely move the deer for the week that they are running but I see bucks chasing does when the rut is at it's peak...probably in another week or two.

    Boat storage and more !

    Finally found boat storage in Niagara on the lake, he also offers heated storage Anyway, I brought my boat from the cottage to the storage on monday, while there I met up with my fishing partner who had his boat ready to take out for a day on the lower niagara. Very surprised to see guide boats on art park drift ( this early in the season ) meaning the trout have ARRIVED ! 1st stop the river mouth where the 1st fish landed was a 5.2lb bass but that didnt last long haha A few more spots before rigging up for trout......We stayed on art park drift for 3 hrs , no steelhead landed just lakers THE SEASON IS HERE rocknreel

    Wild Boars at Waterford

    According to biologists if you have a sounder(group) of 12 pigs and you shoot 10 there will be more the next year - they breed worse than rabbits!! And yes, they are extremely destructive to farmland. on the other hand, think of all the cheap bacon and chops you could accumulate!! all you need is your small game licence for them.

    No worries that’s why we’re here and helpful to others. I deleted my original response to you because I didn’t want to make it seem like I was starting an argument- That’s the last thing I was trying to do. It happens, always an accidental catch here and there. Way to go and best of luck !!

    Archery moose hunt and Big buck

    There are lots of videos online. My brother showed me once 20+ years ago and now I've done dozens of moose, deer and bear...probably over 100 animals. I debone everything... so I take backstraps (yum) , then 2 front shoulders come off easily and are cut up and chunk for ground, stew or sausage/burgers/meatballs. I will often have big bags vacuum sealed in freezer of chunks and at the end of deer season I will take them out and grind them, buy some ground pork and make up and my burgers etc and vacuum seal them. I go through a lot of vacuum sealer bags and buy them a couple thousand at a time to get a good deal and have lots brothers and friends who want them as well. The 2 hind quarters you can basically separate the muscle groups and see the roasts and steaks. We even started keeping the ribs a few years ago and this year I kept some bones and cut them up to make soup broth.

    Another healthy hobby of mine.

    HA HA Joe ... that looks like a great brekkie treat ! So many ways to do up eggs . I like my bacon & eggs , toast & coffee ...eggs sunny side down . Still like dipping toast in boiled eggs too . For a change I cut a big fat green pepper to make 1/4" + rings ...fry it for a minute , turn it over , break an egg inside ,salt-pepper, cover it & cook for another minute or so . Place it on toast and enjoy with a few sliced tomatoes and bacon on the side .....or fish
