  1. Bill, you need a dedicated “tick outfit” treated for the little buggers, like my camo 2-piece rainsuit for hunting! I wear it ALL the time I am out hunting, no matter what the weather. Go to Peavy and buy the 1-litre spray bottle of Ultra Shield. Pick out a shirt and pants just for outdoor activities, spray them thoroughly with the Ultra Shield, and seal them up in a plastic bag. Just take them out of the bag and put them on when you are going out, and reseal them back in the bag as soon as you come back. The spray treatment should last at least 3 weeks before you need to r
  2. Its not just Covid causing these kinds of problems! I had similar lousy service issues with Pt. Colborne Marine, and finally gave up on them and, based on recommendations by members on this web site, went to Erie Marine. Had 2 different boats worked on by John there, and he gave great prompt service!!
  3. What bay are u referring to Bill?
  4. My daughter in Beamsville had a garden at her last house fenced w chicken wire to keep the bunnies out, and rabbits kept getting in to eat the lettuce. One day she happened to be looking out the window and saw a rabbit looking thru the wire at the garden...she watched it run about 15 feet back away from the wire, turn and run and jump the chicken wire into the garden!! She solved the jumper problem by putting up a double-high wire fence around the garden.
  5. This morning I managed to bag my second spring turkey: 18 Pounds, 11 Ounces Beard: 9 15/16 inch Spurs: 1 3/16 and 15/16 inches Time to put the hunting gear away and think about getting ready for fishing now.
  6. Looks like you are going to need to post your property so all these people know there is a new owner, and you don't want them on there any more if you're going to hunt it! otherwise you are going to have continual trespasser problems come fall.
  7. I usually charge at the 10 amp setting.
  8. With turkey hunting, you want the tightest choke pattern you can get, cause there’s no such thing as too many pellets in the head and neck for a clean kill on a turkey! And shell brand, wad, shot size can all vary greatly in pattern density gun-by-gun, because no 2 guns pattern exactly alike, even with the same choke and brand of ammunition. I tried 3 different specialty turkey chokes before I found one that produced really tight patterns at longer ranges with my gun.
  9. The MNRF regulations allow only shot sizes 4, 5, 6, and 7 to hunt turkey. Since you aim to hit them in the head and neck, the more pellets the better, and the small shot sizes in the turkey loads do the job quite well. Personally, I prefer #6 shot, but when I went to buy a new box last month I could only get #5.
  10. Thanks Bill, and everyone. Bill, I shoot a 12gauge Benelli Nova pump, and used Winchester LongBeard 3 1/2 inch #5 shot. Those loads can reach out a long way and get quick kills!
  11. Finally got a turkey this morning! 19.5 Pounds 9 1/2 inch beard 1 1/2 inch spurs I have been after a flock on the family farm since the 26th, but haven't been able to get close enough for a shot, as they are roosting on the treeline on the east (river) side of a big 15+ acre bean field, and keep flying into the field, and are always out of range. Finally this morning I got up real early and set up quietly along the treeline near the roost. Had this tom fly down at 6:00 and he walked into range within 3 minutes after flying down!
  12. Glad to see you got a bird! I went out this morning, but didn’t see any - just heard a couple of very faint gobbles off in the distance. After 2 hours I moved to another part of the farm and set up inside the bush, tried calling for an hour, but nothing. Will try again Wednesday morning where I heard the gobbles.
  13. I just checked Gas Buddy, and where I filled up this afternoon in Welland for $1.08 it is now $1.02
  14. Every morning Welland is high ($1.20s),but by afternoon it is usually down near $1.10. Just never get gas in the morning in Welland!!
  15. Had to go to N. Falls to pick up a Lee Valley order, so I thought I’d get some cheap gas at Costco. N. Falls city gas price $120.9. Costco price $113.9. Left, and came back to Welland and gassed up at $108.9. 😁
