  1. Well the moon, planets and stars aligned so we were able to make it down for this years New York opening weekend. The first time leaving Canada in 18 months. Hit duty free going across into Buffalo to pick up some beer and whisky, only 4 other people in the whole store. The US customs agent seemed just happy to talk to someone, didn't ask if we were bringing anything in, didn't even ask to look at our guns, just shot the shite about hunting for 10 minutes while the cars backed up behind us. lol Met up with our American friends Friday night had a nice dinner, drank lots of beer and whisky while catching up and telling war stories. We were met with a bit of snow on Saturday morning, saw four does but as hard as I could squint I couldn't get them to grow antlers! Another nice dinner, more beer, more whisky, more stories. Sunday morning was a bit warmer. Has two does walk in front of me around 8 am, kept waiting for the buck to emerge from behind them but no such luck. Then about 9 am, three deer came running up the hill from below me all in a line, one doe, then another, the next one must be a buck, nope damn. Then about 10 seconds later up comes another deer, yep antlers, it's legal, it was about a hundred yards below me and a hundred yards to my right so I had a few seconds to assess. I had my heart on a big buck, but we didn't have a deer down yet, I waited as long as I could looking down the hill to see if a bigger buck was behind him, no 8 pointer following, he was now directly to my right about 100 yds out, so I get on mim, I let out a "baaah" to get him to stop, but he kept running, so followed through and dropped him in his tracks. Ended up being a small 6 pointer. I kinda felt bad since he was working so hard to catch up with those does, poor little guy. Should be tasty though!

  2. Direct from police and fire. Basically if you are off trail and doing something that your average person would know better than to do. If you are trying to access a fishing spot that you think that most wouldn't have the balls to try to reach, you might want to give it a second thought. Try to scale a cliff rather than take the trail like everyone else and fall, it's likely going to cost you. Wade out to a rock so you can extend your cast by 20 feet or get that perfect drift, then you're gambling your own life and money. If you ask for a rule book they will tell you to stay on the trails, and definitely out of the water.

  5. I have fished all those places Surf , and I totally agree . I had a lot of fun catching the silvers at the hydro plant in the the spring. We used to fish below the dam at Lock 1 at the canal and always caught a good variety of fish ....and smelts . All closed to fishing now . We still have the morons who screw it up for the rest of us (one bad apple....) ,and of course the numb nuts who leave their garbage . I tossed a huge ball of line in the garbage at Port Dal. yesterday . Today I was at Welland & it's usually clean at the fishing spots .

  6. I try to bring them home alive , let them have their last swim together in the laundry tub for an hour or two , then a quick tap on the head with my bonker . After a quick prayer , they get treated to a Rapala filleting knife , skin removed , bathed in clean cold water , patted dry on paper towels and off to a nice warm frying pan . Any blood in the flesh gets treated like a medium rare steak ....down the hatch !
