    Tree identification Video - Black Walnut

    I haven't, but maybe in the future. I read how recently you are getting into land stewardship. Good for you!
  4. Hello All, I made another tree I.D. video - this time showing how to find black walnut. I filmed a bunch of other species, but that walnut discussion went long so I'll have to make a part 2.
  5. Put it on YOuTube and post a link.

    Teach this Salty Dog About Mud Chickens

    Good for you! The first few lakers I successfully jigged were a religious experience.
  7. Nearly all. If you follow milk prices, you will understand his motivation.
  8. From my perspective, I have a longtime client who asked me to put up a hunting lease for sale at a price he specified. This is a price that we have obtained in the past. What is your perspective?
  9. Hello. I have one large lease available in the Cuba/Rushford area that has suddenly become available. It is 426 acres in the Town of Lyndon, on Rawson Road. It has hills, some cropland, cattail swamp, oak forest. There is a derelict cabin on the property that you may use. I have personally hunted this property and know that it is a haven for turkey and deer, as well as waterfowl. Price $7,242.00 per year for all seasons, exclusive rights. I am a consulting forester, and these leases are for a client of mine (a dairy farm). This lease is all I have available. Because I don't earn much by doing these leases, I have a streamlined process in which I do them: email me at [email protected] if you are interested, and I will send you a map, and you go look at it at your convenience. If you like what you see, you can write or phone me and I will get you a lease agreement. I can't hold the lease for anybody until you come to look at it or come up with the money. So many people look at a lease before they buy, that it is a race to the finish line for your signature and check. Sign the lease, send a check, and you are signed up for a 12 month contract. the lease comes with the following stipulations: You have exclusive hunting rights for all game animals. You have first refusal if you wish to renew your lease. No use of ATVs other than to deploy tree stands or retrieve downed game. Only commercially available tree stands allowed. NO nails in trees, or cutting of shooting lanes. No camping on property (other than the one with the cabin) You can have as many people hunt on property as you wish, but all hunters must sign lease.

    Poll: Different kinds of fishing

    Just thought of another kind of fishing I never did, successfully. Dip netting smelt. Bucket list item that involves an actual bucket!

    Poll: Different kinds of fishing

    My brother used to live 10 minutes from the Cape Cod canal! I had plans to eventually visit him with bicycle and gear but he and his family moved to Florida!
  13. Hello All, Fishermen tend to be pretty specific about what species they chase and what style they use to pursue them. When I was a kid, my Uncle Claude gave me a book by Joseph D. Bates, Jr. called"Fishing". it was encyclopedic, covering spin, baitcasting, flyfishing, trolling, even saltwater fishing. The tackle and tactics in the book seem quaint now, because the technology has grown so much since its publication. But it impressed on me at the very beginning that fishing is a huge world that would take lifetimes to explore. Once on this board we had a thread that discussed how many species we have caught. What if we talk about all the different styles we have done before? To start, I have done the worms-and-bobbers thing. Somewhere in junior high I vowed to be an artificial lures purist. Through high school i thought the whole largemouth bassin' approach used by Roland Martin and Jimmy Houston was da bomb - chucking and cranking diving plugs, hitting the lily pads, bushes and weeds with rubber worms and jig-n-pig. When i moved back to maine, it was all about hitting tiny brooks to go after brook trout that seldom broke 8 inches. About then is when i got serous about fly fishing, and started to tie flies. In the fly fishng world, I have gotten them on dries (my favorite), and nymphs, swinging wets. Sight fishing feeding carp and smallmouth in the shallows is a challenge. I have built and fished bamboo rods. Tried the whole spey casting thing, had some success, but found them impractical. I have used frayed rope to catch gar on a fly rod, and used spawn sacks on a noodle rod to get salmon and steelhead. Every spring and fall I used to be a steeklhead gypsy, driving along the coasts looking for spawning fish. When the stream trout fishing in western NY started to crap out, I took to trolling the finger lakes. I began with seth green rigs, and eventually got leadcore, downriggers and a dipsy. And that led to vertically jigging lakers and other fish, which is where my fancy seems to currently reside. I haven't done a huge amount of ice fishing, but I hve drilled holes and pulled fish from them. What havent I done? I have never bowfished, or successfully used a float reel. Except for a few stripers, mackerel, and flounder, there is the whole range of saltwater experience that would be great to do. Have caught plenty of perch, but never targetted them seriously the way New Yorkers do. Always wanted to get walleye in Lake Erie. How about the rest of you? How many different styles of fishing have you done, or want to try?
