  1. bass Pro and erie tracker are supposedly open for now because they sell hunting and fishing licences
  2. God......now I have to listen to all this for the next year. I have to admit though he does a lot of prep work, scouting, archery practice...he earns his animals. Now if he could just work on his modesty.
  3. If mooseslayer gets his buck, we (his brothers) will have to listen to him for the next year....problem is that its not braggin' if it's a fact.
  4. Where was this? In Niagara? You cannot run around in the bushes willy nilly without a hunting licence in an area where you can legally discharge the firearm. They could be charged (and should have been charged with a number of offences and confiscation of the "weapon(s)" should have occurred. They shoot something or someone and the antis will have further ammunition to banish guns period - even from the law abiding users like us. It doesn't matter how young they are... they have to be accountable.
  5. Daily limit 5 possession limit 10 2 squirrel will feed the wife and I Cut the squirrels into 4 legs, rib cage and lower back sections. Put into a pot of water with garlic powder, salt, pepper and sage...boil until meat almost ready to fall off bones. Remove the squirrel pieces and douse in beaten egg. Dredge the pieces in a bag of crushed original Ritz crackers until fully coated. After just enough time in a well margarine frying pan to brown the cracker coating, serve with buttery mashed potatoes and corn. I usually have to bring a big stick to the table to make sur
  6. Too much work and inclement weather was making me cranky so when yesterday was open and the weather acceptable I proceeded to do one of my favorite type of hunt.......squirrels with a .22 rifle!! Sneakin' and peekin' thru the bush is great practice for other kinds of hunting and the challenge of hitting a target as small as a squirrel at ranges up to 50 yards can be a problem ...this ain't bench rest shooting. Especially like yesterday where the wind was making the little buggers a tad skittish. You always see a lot more squirrels than you get a shot at - you probably get a shot at a
  7. Look on the bright side of it........you can buy your own birthday and Xmas presents.....forget about them and come the day it's a surprise and you know you'll get something you'll like and can use. Also when the wife updates the honey-do list you have a ready made excuse for not doing it. Anddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd drat, I forgot what I was going to say.
  8. Yes , hunting with the brothers is special, but there is always the element of competition in the hunting and fishing. Having a brother netting your fish that is bigger than his always carries the fear of a netting "accident". But it is a tradition we look forward to all year because we make time for it. Down home family, jobs, and other cr@p can make it difficult for all of us to hunt and fish together. As well, some hunt with other gangs, e.g moose. But the bear hunt is always great albeit a lot of work at times. But we are still doing it together. Getting eight 45 gallon drums worth of donu
  9. Got up to the camp for the fall bear hunt that opened August 15th. The five brothers have a camp 20 miles north of Kirkland Lake. A log cabin that was built in the fifties. We added a bunkhouse after we bought it and every year have made improvements. New dock original cabin with bunkhouse added inside sleeping area This is the morning view out the cabin door
  10. try the thin rubber strings from a spinnerbait...you can buy just the skirt at a tackle shop......half hitches will work. I still have some of the old whisker style string silencers....they are a little stronger than the skirts but you may find some heavier skirts
  11. brookie... be careful cause what you are doing can be interpreted as hunting and with out a controlled tag... well you do the math
  12. Saw 5 deer today...2 in the dark going in....3 in the dark going out have fun Tuesday........50-80 km winds......I think I'll stay out of the tree stand
  13. Thank god for global warming......just think how bad it would be without it
  14. The hawks like the seed we put out for the critters, i.e. bait and you can tell when they are around because everything disappears and the squirrels freeze in the trees. They don't just take little stuff either. One time I was out hunting rabbits with the beagle and just as she was bringing the rabbit around she stopped barking. Thinking she had lost the track or the rabbit went into a hollow tree, I went over to where I last heard her howl. The snow said it all...... rabbit and dog tracks and then just dog tracks and scuff marks in the snow. The beagle started bark at a tree and looking up I
  15. Farmers benefit in the higher price for corn due to ethanol. But corn is very hard on the land and needs a lot of fertilizer plus the roundup to kill the weeds before planting. Put the land to use growing corn for ethanol and you don't put it into food grains like wheat ..... guess where the price of wheat and bread goes ....up. plus the corn goes to ethanol not food. My understanding is you can get ethanol with a cellulose based process. So..... take a "weed" like switch grass which will grow on any piece of c*&p soil and use it for ethanol. NOPE! Big agriculture has too much invested in
