    2018 in a nutshell

    Im planning on starting this. How in depth do you go? Feet of water, water temp, length and weight of fish caught? I just listened to a podcast where a coyote hunter did the same thing. Really interesting stuff, he took notes on the weather, distance, time of day and a whole bunch more. He sold over 3000 pelts into the fur market.

    announcement to members

    This is some sad news, never did have an outdoor mentor so this site helped inform me on a lot of things I never knew. I got lucky enough to meet up with a fellow member who took me out fishing the welland river and scouting for ducks. Gave me the confidence to invest in gear and this coming season I will be out chasing waterfowl on my own. Just sucks to think that opportunity won't happen in the future for another person looking to get out fishing or hunting. Please post if a Facebook group will be created I'd sure like to join. Thanks for all the how to tips over the last couple years they were appreciated looks like I missed the last page of the post great news the page is staying alive. I don't post all that often but I will make a point of being more active.

    How has your duck hunt been so far

    Sorry to hear Gunner retired this year but at least you have a ton of good memories with him out on the water. It has to be equally as tough for him

    Making the best of a bad situation.

    I was thinking of doing something along those lines with burlap and then brushing it in. At least that way if it gets destroyed or vanished for some reason it's very little money invested. It just really bothers me that people would do stuff like that. Nothing is sacred anymore. Good tip fishingking at least if I dont get a deer I can have hopes of bagging a Turkey in the spring . I had trail cams out last year and caught people trespassing, took them down at the end of the season. They got packed into a box before moving so I never set them up. Could be lucky. They might have gotten stolen as well. Thanks for the reminder genec I must have been looking at the rabbit season because that one is open until the Feb 28th. Either way still a good excuse to get out of the house after the holidays.
  5. Due to moving into a new house I haven't been able to get out for deer this year. This past weekend I finished up all the odds and ends around the house and figured I would head out to my stand and make sure all was good for a hunt next weekend. Walked up to the tree my ladder stands was on and the stand was gone! The straps holding it to the tree are cut and laying at the base. After a few choice words I decided I wasn't going to let some jerk ruin my day. I went home grabbed my shotgun and went out for small game. Ended up with two squirrels in the freezer ready for dinner next week. Felt really good to bring home some meat but the face on my 1 1/2 year olds face when I showed him the squirrels made it all worth it. Gonna make an outdoorsman out of him yet. Anyone else hunt squirrel in niagara? Thinking about hunting them into the new year since my deer season is over before it started. Also if anyone has any recommendations on a quick set up blind since leaving a stand out on private property is no longer an option.

    2018 Moose Hunt Guaranteed Group Size

    I've never moose hunted before so I have some questions about what seems to me to be a crazy number of people for one bull moose tag. Why 12? Are moose numbers so low this is a must? And if so why are cows and calves hunted. I know north eastern Ontario has some of these high numbers of hunters for one tag but yet just a half hour from the Ontario boarder in Quebec it takes two out-of-province Hunters to obtain a bull tag price being around 350 each for the tag. I also heard from the OFAH Twitter page that the ministry more or less blew off their opinion about the changes to the moose regs this year. Like I said I've never hunted for moose but I sure have eaten a bunch and would one day like to get one of my own. Just curious as to what everyone has to say. After all of you don't ask you won't learn

    Turkey Opener Coming!

    I've been waiting for this for a while now. Went shed hunting at my spot last month, came up empty handed but found a bunch of feathers under some ceaders I've caught them roosting in before. Hopefully come Monday I can get my first bird on the ground. Good luck and hope everyone gets the opener they want.

    River Access allowed or not?

    This link should help. From what it sounds like you're saying it's completely legal as long as you stay under the high-water mark. I would give it a solid read through just to make sure but I think you're in the clear. www.canada.ca/en/services/environment/conservation/assessments/environmental-reviews/navigation-protection/guidebook.html

    Cleaning fish riverside

    Would gutting and bleeding it down on the river but leaving the fish whole solve some of the issues? That way no guts to make a mess of the sink. Fillet it quickly at home and then throw the carcass in the freezer. Solves about half the issues.

    Otters in port D

    I know exactly what you mean smerchly beavers can deffenitly cause a ton of damage but playing the devil's advocate. Those trees that the pesky beavers are clogging up your fishing holes with are creating new and abundant habitat for different fish species. As long as the population is stable I say they should be trapped ( although that's a lot harder to do in Niagara than other places in Canada). For me I like seeing these furbearers that have been missing from Niagara since before I was a little kid. Just makes me feel like we are making the right steps towards conservation and protecting our natural resources.

    Otters in port D

    Couple years ago the wife and I went down to Miners fish and chips down by the canal in Port Colborne and we seen six baby otters running down the sidewalk right next to the canal. It was a pretty cool sight to see. Last weekend I fished black creek in fort erie and had a mink run right up to me. Guess the camo hoodie I was wearing did the trick. Never seen them down here before. It' great to see animals like otters, beaver and mink making a comeback in the area

    Hunting and fishing podcasts?

    Thanks bigugli I had no idea there was the angler and hunter podcast. Excited to hear it and listen about some content that' a little closer to home.
  15. Since I drive about 70 hours a week I've been turning to podcasts to entertain myself. I was just wondering if anyone on here listens to some and maybe knows of any that I'm not aware of. Right now I listen to: meateater, wired to hunt, 100% wild, hunt talk radio, HP waterfowl, the spear and Ike live ( Mike Iaconelli ) In my opinion all of these are great but I haven't been able to find a podcast that focuses on freshwater fishing aside from Ike live and that more or less talks about the pro bass tour in the states which is interesting to learn about but not really my cup of tea.
