  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. This weekend’s muzzleloader opening should tell a lot. See what is brought in to deer processing butchers.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Always amazes me when they have the whole river and feel they have to run close by and throw a big wake. Not to thoughtful when I’m trolling by myself especially at night. I now always wear and inflatable vest. Things sure have changed in the last 40 years! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  20. I got my oldest grandson a new rod, reel and full tackle box for his early birthday. Took them to a couple ponds to fish this morning and caught a pile of bluegills on dough bait after chumming with bread. Also got to feed a large snapping turtle! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
