  1. Legacy- 2017 Deer Season

    I was a tick (not chick) magnet for years. I've pulled at least 8 attached & 3 dug in ticks off of me over the last 10 years. Thank the Lord never got anything bad but bite marks. I've been using Gamehides "Elmi-tick" clothing for about 4-5 years (on my 2nd set of clothes) & hardly if ever see ticks on my clothes. And haven't had a tick attached since I've been using the clothing. I wear the clothing even when I'm skinning animals. Better safe than sorry. I do use Permetherin spray on my normal clothes & it also works great. But like Dawsonscreek said you don't want it on your skin. One, it doesn't work on skin & two, it is strong stuff. Good luck to all!
  2. Acorns

    Seems like white oaks put off acorns once every couple of years. But if you search the woods you're sure to find 1 or 2 putting off acorns. I would rather have 1 or 2 white oaks trees putting off acorns instead of all the white oaks. Makes it easier to figure where to hang your archery stands, at least for the 1st 2 weeks of the season. I've seen deer walk past a standing corn field & not give it any notice to get to a white oak tree putting off acorns. Red oaks put off almost every year. I don't see deer give red oak acorns much run (a few exceptions, chestnut oak) . They must be a bit bitter. They'll eat them. But usually save them for later after most other options are gone. Looks like red oaks are set to drop quite a few acorns this year. Around my area we've got apple, crab apple & hickory trees loaded with a bumper crop. Butternuts are spotty. Like someone mentioned earlier walnut trees are loaded to the hilt. Good luck to all!
  3. Pre season sightings

    Here's a couple bucks I have on camera. Trouble is like all bigger bucks I hardly ever see them during the season. That's why they're both mature older bucks. They disappear every hunting season. I have 1 other 23" 10 point on camera but can't get the computer to read the SD card. So I can't attach the picture. If I get it to load I'll attach it later. B Safe!
  4. Wave report for Hurricane Irma

    You're right! I forgot about the "NOAA" factor of THEIR height of the wave x 2= actual wave height! Thanks for the reminder.
  5. Wave report for Hurricane Irma I was curious so I went to NOAA's site to check the "offshore" & "open sea" wave report in & around the Hurricane. We can't get out on the Great Lakes when there are 2-4' to 3-5' waves. How would you like to be looking at 27' waves on the offshore & 54' waves in the open sea? That is just mind boggling! Be safe everyone! Live to fish another day!
  6. Finally!

    Nice Fish! They both still look pretty silver! Two fish to make your season with in 15 minutes.
  7. LOC PURSE

    I would think that would be at the discretion of the angler who caught the fish. Or if there was a pre-arrangement made before hand between you & your fishing partners. I've only placed 3 times in the derby & it wasn't for a lot of money. And my fishing buddy & I have always had a 50/50 arrangement no matter who catches the fish. And we're also not on a charter. Maybe the folks who fish on charters can help more with this question than I. Good Luck & hope you run into that "problem". B Safe!
  8. Prayer Request

    My prayers go out to you & your family. Wish you & yours the best.
  9. Thanks for the report. I hear you though. No one likes getting skunked. No matter if you're on the water for a couple of hours or all day. Sounds like you had a good trip otherwise. Lake O is certainly different than Erie! Hard to believe they're so different even though they're so close in proximity. Gotta love it though. Give us a real diversified fishery...close to home! B Safe!
  10. I'm not sure. That's why I wanted to ask. Last thing I want to do is get in trouble & lose my fishing privileges. I know the folks on this site who fish Lake O more than I do will no better than me. Been fishing it a long time, but only 1 or 2 trips a year & the regulations change all the time. Better safe than sorry. B safe!
  11. I thought the rule of 1 per day was for the tributaries? The regulation is a little vague. But like JTowne stated. I don't want to break any laws. That can really ruin a fishing trip. I copied & pasted this from the NY Fishing Digest online book. Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout (including Steelhead), Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon All year 15″, except 21″ for Rainbow Trout or Steelhead 3 in any combination, not to include more than 1 Rainbow Trout (or Steelhead) in the tributaries
  12. Thanks for the report. Wow. One mishap after another. Glad you got to fish...& catch some fish. Hope all the boat issues get worked out & you light them up again next time. B safe & good luck!
  13. cannon rigger issue

    Thanks Rtrucking! I did go thru the handle & basically word for word did what you had said. Got the parts & it works great now! I really appreciate your help. Now I know since you replied with the same information to what I did at least I know I did it correctly. Thanks! Good luck the rest of the year! B Safe!
  14. cannon rigger issue

    ERABBIT, Thanks! I will give that a try as well. Going to tear it down & see whats going on with it. I want to thank everyone who posted with ideas. Really appreciate all the help!
  15. Just reading thru the thread & see you're getting married. Best of luck to you! Wish you & your lady all the best!
