  1. Very nice. I'll be at the Erie Tracker Big Buck Feb 1 with mine. Maybe I'll see you there. I might have a chance in the OMW King of the Woods Contest week 1.
  2. I got my personal best buck and have a shot in the Big Buck contest as we green scored it at 164 but that was Oct 12. I hunted a lot in December trying to fill a doe tag and similarly had lot of days with no sightings. We really could have used some colder weather.
  3. Reminder... If you hunted deer you must have the mandatory report done online before jan 14
  4. My outdoors card expires Dec 31. I went in and renewed it and 3-year Fishing and 3-year Small Game for a measly $176. Emailed a bunch of family and friends and many that were expiring this year as well thanked me as they forgot and the MNR does not send out reminders now. One note...the Small game and fishing licenses are greyed out until you put the Outdoors card in the Cart if you are doing it online.
  5. Awesome! Nice to get the tag filled. Looks like a good mature buck.
  6. Congrats! great to hear the older guys getting the deer. When I had a camp past Parry Sound we had the same thing. Started out as a deer camp, then they dropped the available doe tags and we also started seeing more moose so it became a moose camp until the MNR dropped the moose tags and we couldn't get a tag...even though we got a moose opening day for many years. We finally sold the camp and bought another up in Kirkland Lake but now we can't get a moose tag there either.
  7. Good stuff. I haven't hunted ducks in years. I have a Woodie and nice mallard in my rec room from years back.
  8. The moose racks I have are huge as well and they take up a lot of room. The one on the left is 58 1/4 inches wide. I got in 2001 and when I put it in FROW record book it was #9 all-time archery. Not sure where it stands now. They're really heavy as well and I cut out plate steel and securely anchored to the back of the skull and then cut a keyhole slot and it hangs off a large lag bolt into wall. My ceilings are low as well.
  9. It's home!. Got my deer back Saturday and I'm very happy. Now I have bookends as the one on the right is one I won Big buck contest probably over 15 years ago. Alain did a great job. He fussed about a gore mark on the neck that he couldn't fix because hair must have got cut when it happened. I like it...gives it character and shows he was a scrapper. Here are pictures of it with my other deer and my 2 big archery moose racks at the other end of my rec room. The room is complete now lol.
  10. Deer mounts are $500 now. The costs for mannequin, pickle, tanning solutions go up every year and there is a lot of work. I can't wait to see it finished. I have a deer mount at the end of my rec room looking right so we made this one looking left. It should make for a nice view. I have 2 big sets moose antlers at the other end of the room that are 55 and 58 inches wide.
  11. 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.
  12. I'm well aware of the first nation hunts. Near where a friend of mine hunts and I go with him on occasion. Their hunts go actually go into January this year The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has announced that the traditional Aboriginal deer hunts will take place on Oct. 22, Nov. 14 and 28, Dec. 5 and Jan. 16. The hunt begins each day one half-hour before sunrise, and ends on half-hour after sunset. The park will be closed the morning after each harvest for maintenance until noon.
