  1. I love this thread.....especially hearing that so many good guys hate eating the fish. I bet they feel the same way about the caviar and pate'. Life is goooood !
  2. The older I get , the more I wish for a longer season....just don't enjoy 3 days in a row. I had a beagle named SUSHI, and she retrieved bunnies from deep in the thorns. God, I miss that girl.
  3. Good morning Rol-man......I prepare a product known as Gravlox which is a Scandinavian version. I usually bring it to a Holiday party especially New Years. It is really an easy prep, and the next time I get to it, I'll have you here to see. Or you can see the recipe on page 17 in the Silver Palette Cookbook ( ? edition ). I use Wegman's salmon fillets about 5 pounds total cut from the center section for good fit. They say serve with Vodka or the better matched Aquavit , both nice but a little tough at breakfast. ROL, do it for the upcoming Holidays and they will not forget you ! I am close by , so let me know how she goes. Have fun Dave
  4. WOW, Speedy.....would you tell what bow and scope you used. Pushing 80 here and time for a change to something a little quieter. Thanks, WOW Dave

    Trailer sway

    WOW...even from the pic....Looks like a TRAGEDY ready to go ! I would bet you are way too light on tongue weight. I would go to a truck weigh station and see what your boat with all your gear with gas weighs. Then determine the correct tongue weight for this load. Then make sure the wheel/tire capacity is correct for the boat as loaded . If all ok, then I bet you will have to move the boat up the trailer. If you can, move the winch up enough to get the rear overhang down....way too much for my comfort even as regards your transom support, though just a guess. Boy, I'd feel great to see your adjustments later ! Good luck.
  6. Marine ply is for me...what thickness did you use. You are doing really good work. Dave
  7. Well, Champ......looking at those two bambies, I think you may have at least come close to getting your perfect doe much earlier. Wow, many memorable time ahead ! Christmas gift...ya-ah

    plywood bottom

    Retired antique canoe restorer needs a 3/8" plywood bottom refinished on a 14' Showboat . Custom designed and built by me in 1960. would appreciate knowing of someone in the FLA who is " show Minded " to do the work. I can do it , but a little worn these days. Thanks for any recommendation. Dave
  9. Well, we just saved the life of one expensive stand wrapped in a vest ! I remember still hunting in the Hi-Tor woods and maybe 100 yards out, saw brown movement with a white patch kinda flicking around the brown. I was just under a ridge mainly focused on the flat below, and peeking over the ridge every so often just because. With an open peep I really couldn't confirm, so just stayed alert. As I went further on and over the ridge closer to the brown patch, you might guess what the deer really was. Yes, a hunter with no orange anything, wiping his nose with a white hanky, in a stand that was placed just low enough, over another little ridge so all I could see was his imitating a deer with an itchy tail. This happened almost 40 years ago, and I feel just like PAP remembers. WOW ! My dad always said consider the what if ??? and much later I learned about FMA ( failure mode analysis ) There ya go....that was one lucky Dude ! Stay safe .
  10. I'm still using my 336 marlin i bought in 64 in nashua nh just married.............and she pointed it out for my first deer....she downed many more as time has passed . Love this time of year !!
  11. where is L & M in Monroe County.please ? can't find them... Thanks anyone.
  12. I corn the necks and treat like a New England boiled dinner ( corned beef ), pick off the meat for sandwiches , hash or go for the dinner. Sometimes just nice to have a carafe of beer and good friends around and pick around the bones by the fire.
  13. Mr. Dane...found the probe and can't get the test light to blink when the unit is in the on position......so will probably talk with the factory Monday. Sorry, I can't help at the moment. I do have some other things to move out. You are so nearby, I thought I would mention it. i will advise on the probe malady. Thanks , Dave
  14. OK, see what I can do.
  15. JIM.I have a spare , but have to locate it. It may be in my boat in storage. I am in Rochester and assume I can PM you . If you know Sam and Terry Hoagland on the Lake Hap...say hi. They have one of my nicest early wood canoes. Dave

    Boat Trailers

    But.......what if one obeys the sign and doesn't power load ? I take some comfort in knowing my rollers serve in any case, short ramp, steep ramp...whatever, and I'm pushing 80. I must admit to having installed a longer winch handle. When I did , I knew I was good for even Noah's ark.
  17. This may be my first post....had to share this.....I am one of those who out of respect, hunger, greed, cost to hunt, culinary adventure etc.eats every possible morsel on what I get in the field and on the water....cuts and pieces one can get to with reasonable effort. Brains are exquisite sauteed in the French tradition, but way too tough to get to. So, I can say one of our staples is a corned Venison shoulder and " steaks " and meat from the brisket. Another staple is a Venison stew that will blow your socks off. ( Save the kidneys for a favorite stew recipe. ) A must for us is the LL Bean Game and Fish Cookbook by Angus Cameron and Judith Jones. The book used to be on Amazon and was very inexpensive..I have given many as gifts and thanked profusely. Oh, and save the tongues as well.they are excellent braised or pickled as were the lamb tongues in the jar in the old days with mustard, crackers and ice cold beer. Be brave and have FUN !
  18. Just get on Walter's list and he will keep you informed. He does all the dirty work and knows Albany.......All you need to do is believe that there is safety in numbers and it is true as he has done some great things for the State that most thought impossible....if you care to give MAYBE an hour a MONTH.
  19. Let me simply say........knowledge is power. The Seneca salinity issue is part of a much wider issue having to do with politics, big money , NY FL water quality , Community health +++. If you have the time go to Walter Hang's site at TOXICSOLUTIONS as he is a neighbor to many of us who fish, hunt and love the Fingers. His company is located in Ithaca.
  20. Ed, what a day on Seneca............say, if you send those rebar holders I would be be very happy to put a good chamfer on one of the ends.
  21. WOW, LES and SON...........and what a singular memory with DAD... what a bonus !!!!! and imagine the BT caviar, what, several pounds probably and at many dollars per ounce. Oh, not about the money, but how much of this great delicacy is simply dumped !! Hey, maybe some botarga and a taste of the Mediterranean
  22. Are there many recessive traits and not all are problematic. Why would this gene be an issue in the wild ? I should think a contained population here would be just fine. Interesting consideration for sure.
  23. Oh, WILLY......How I miss the 13 mile woods. Hunted a lot there for rabbit and deer with my wife....even slept / camped out of a VW Bug along the Androscoggin somewhere on a logging road. How lucky you are to have the buds to share the hound-sound. I can hear them now !
  24. I have the 870 20ga mag pump. I bought her in 1960 when my wife and I began hunting in NH. I had a polychoke instaled then and had the barrel cut down as short as legal. ...set the smooth bore to slug, chuck a brennike mag slug and they go to the freezer. With a little rifle sling from LL Bean long ago, I travel very lightly and very happily. See you tomorrow and maybe after my yearly nap in the field.
  25. Now, that's a DAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Heading off with the spouse of 51 years ( married, i mean ) for some jigging, and probably the last jigging til Spring.........but you never know with this weather. I may get there again. Aren't these Finger Lakes the ultimate or at least close to it !!
