  1. It’s a Winchester model 69. Was my dad’s and still shoots pretty well.
  2. I wouldn’t shoot them if I didn’t eat them. They need to be braised to become tender. I went again this afternoon and got a grey and a black.
  3. On a nice day it’s a great time to walk in the woods and do some scouting for next year. Hunting squirrels is a great way to practice your still hunting and stalking skills also.
  4. Unfortunately with upcoming family commitments I decided to wraps the boat up for the year.
  5. Looks like next week the wind will let up.
  6. Nice fish. I may have to give it a shot if the weather holds. Been spending most of the fall deer hunting and some perch fishing. My Lund is in the garage and not put up for the winter yet!
  7. Since I had filled both muzzleloader tags with a buck and a doe in the early season I thought I was through for the year. I discovered today I can use my unused regular season tag for a buck or doe and 2 DMP tags and 2 of my wife’s in the late muzzleloader season in 6g (confirmed with DEC) which gives me another week to hunt and more tags than I’d ever use. Not sure I would shoot anything as I passed up many during the regular season but at least I can get out if I want.

  9. Federal Power Shock .243 hundred grain soft point
  10. .243 100 grain I found bullet in off shoulder after it broke femur just below socket. Dropped in its tracks. Bullet did its job.
  11. My wife has kill several does but this is just her second buck. The night before I was with her in a ground blind and a doe with twin fawns came out. It would have been an easy shot but she said she would rather just watch them even though we had 4 doe tags. The next evening she returned to the same blind and I sat a scrape about 300 yards away. Just before sunset I heard her shoot and got a phone message saying “I need your help”. I immediately called her and was relieved to find out she had dropped a buck at 80 yards. She said 5 deer came out and at least 2 were bucks but the one she shot had stopped and given her a good broadside shot. She said the other deer were still standing there and one was a 4 point. When I got to the blind the deer were still standing there but then ran off. It’s always special when I can put her on a deer or turkey. She was still a little shaky when I got there to take care of her buck. She somewhat understands my hunting passion but still only likes hunting on pleasant days!
  12. Use to use 250 shockwaves with 3 triple 7 pellets Shot great but not great expansion. I switched to 245 grain Barnes spitfire with 100 grains of Black Horn. Shot equally well but cleaner and much better expansion. Rusty hooked me up with the Barnes bullets and they seem to work great on the 2 deer I’ve taken. Great penetration plus good expansion.
  13. Was fortunate to take him this evening 1/2 mile from home with muzzleloader. Thanks for the bullets Rusty they work just fine!!!! I’ve been concerned with EHD outbreak in my region but I’ve seen quite a few deer so far. Think it’s hit worse just north of here.
  14. My sister in law in Canton sent me this message. I had a guy come into the store today and somehow we started on a conversation and he told me Pierce a nearby farmer found 100 dead deer 😞 Although not confirmed it certainly is scary and no frost in the forecast.
  15. Just took my normal short ride and saw the same 4 doe and 5 fawns back on the place I hunt. Also saw 2 deer in field where I had been seeing them in. Perhaps it didn't hit as bad as I thought😀 I’ve seen 22 deer since last evening after seeing none for several days. Granted some were the same deer but I’m much more optimistic than yesterday! Just heard a friend found 4 more dead ones walking his property with a dog.
  16. Took an early morning drive today and covered about 40 miles. Passed many fields where I always see deer. I saw only 3 fawns under one apple tree near the road with no doe. Never saw another deer. Things definitely look bleak! I hear things may not be bad in the Canton area but don’t know for sure, think they had a frost.
  17. This weekend’s muzzleloader opening should tell a lot. See what is brought in to deer processing butchers.
  18. Got my muzzleloader ready to go with black horn powder and bullets you gave me. Shoots very nicely! Now I’m not sure if I want to shoot a deer especially a doe. Took a drive to Pulaski early this morning and never saw a deer on the way down or back. Many folks in my area are concerned.
  19. Many of my friends are reporting very few, if any, trail cam photos or sightings of deer in past week. I took a drive this evening around a block where I generally can see 12-20 deer. Tonight I saw only 4. There have also been at least 20 dead deer found in the Hammond/ Redwood area. I have also observed, what seems to be, a large number of turkey vultures around this area. This has me very concerned with affect of EHD on our local deer population and the upcoming season. I also don’t remember not having a frost this late in the fall.
  20. I just use one of my kids old small backpack. It holds a lot and is pretty comfortable. (Saw, scent, binoculars, knife, buttout, paper towels, zip lock bags, compass, cleaning gloves, gloves, hat, face mask, ammo, grunt tube, bleat can, and rattle horns, food, drink, and safety harness if needed) I can even throw in extra jacket. That said I seldom need to walk long distances.
  21. Good to know. I know saltwater drum are very good but after researching I was of the opinion that they were questionable especially the larger ones. If I get a smaller one I’ll give them a try. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. I have been going to try eating one but I’ve read conflicting reports mostly bad. Those that did to eat them were using small fish.I took the otoliths and buried it in my garden. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. Thanks for the help Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  24. I was able to get my grandsons out this morning and we had a great time. First pass with riggers had a big fish hit and while getting the 8 year old situated to fight it the other rigger went. The 5 year old landed a 19” walleye while the 8 year old reeled in the 12lb 3 oz drum. We were also able to land 5 bass two which were over 3 lbs. not a bad morning with my wife being a great help piloting the boat. I even took otoliths of drum for a treasure.
