  1. Yep, pressure cooker would speed up the process. I use it to can venison, goose, salmon, and Browns. I sometimes forget it works great on tougher meat. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  2. Definately need to keep it fun. As previously said, in the case of kids size doesn't matter. Kids like to be involved in all aspects of the trip; driving the boat, setting the lines, watching the graph, netting the fish, listening to the radio, etc. Plenty of snacks and drinks and just keep them involved. Amazing how quickly the pick up on things, particularly when they are assigned a job. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  5. After dressing and skinning my bird I breasted it, cut off the thighs for another meal. I then sectioned up all the bones including the heart, gizzard, liver, drumsticks and neck then threw them in a pot with onion, garlic, carrot, celery, dried tomato, salt and spices. Brought it to a boil and then simmered for several hours till meat easily pulled from bones. When strained it made a wonderful stock and I picked 2.3 pounds of meat off the bones which I added to the stock. I made a delicious soup and froze another batch in a gallon zip lock. It's a shame so many people just breast their birds and all that good meat is wasted. Even the drumstick are good and tender if you simmer and remove tendons. I know it's is time consuming and easy for me to do being retired. I understand that many may not want to take the time but I get at least three more meals from a bird than if I were to simple take the breast. One or more from each half breast, one from the thighs. And at least 2 from the broth and meat used for stew or soup. I have also ground the thigh, leg, heart, and gizzard and mixed with pork to make sausage. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  6. Went back to Cardinal Ontario yesterday morning and we only caught 2 small walleyes. Mr Walleye had a banner weekend up in Quinte from photos he sent. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  9. Tagged out with a 21.4 lb., 1 1/8" spur but only 8 1/2" beard. Came running into my strutting decoy. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Brian Hartman caught this 32" , 18lb 2 oz walleye on the SLR weighed on certified scales. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Fished BOQ with Mr walleyes and the boys and caught about 20 total on Saturday after the big blow but did better on Sunday with everyone limiting out early. Moved to The SLR on Monday and Tuesday and caught 3 on Monday in North wind and 7 on Tuesday morning. Fun weekend with great friends. Got home after filleting fish and pick some asparagus. I love May! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I had a great day today. This morning I shot a turkey and a coyote came in and grabbed it and try to steal it. This afternoon I fished a local lake and caught a nice limit of crappies. Great start for May. I taught school for 33 years and at times coached 3 varsity sports. My kids also each played 3 sports so I understand family issues. Looking back I wonder how I fit in as much hunting and fishing as I did. Now it's hunt or fish 4-5 days a week interrupted by frequent visits to NJ to visit my kids and grandkids. I'm truly blessed!!!! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  13. Incredible day! After having a coyote try to steal the turkey I shot this morning I decided to hit a local lake for crappies. Largest was 13" and a bunch 11-12"! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Just when I was considering leaving due to wind and rain I saw 3 turkeys at far end of the field. Looked to my right and there were 2 more much closer closing on my decoy. Two came right in and I shot one but other two birds kept coming my way so I stayed in the blind not wanting to spook the other birds. Immediately after I took this photo, a coyote appeared and ran up and grabbed my turkey and started dragging it away! I had to shout and move to get it to drop the bird. I almost shot it but was trying to get a video. The other birds spooked so now the field was empty. Wish I could have videoed the whole thing or shot the coyote but what a story to tell.

  15. Only 2 days till I'll be fishing in Bay of Quinte with Mr Walleye and friends for the weekend walleye opener. Then on Monday will be fishing below Cardinal Ontario on the SLR for a couple days. After that will likely be hitting Sackets and Chaumont. All this while trying to locate a turkey which thus far has eluded me. Wish May was a longer month as I'll also be hitting Cape Cod for sea bass and stripers, crappie and bullhead fishing , and fly fishing the St Regis. So many choices but fortunately I'm retired!

  16. Had a hen come right to my Jake decoy and we were calling back and forth. Unfortunately the toms that were in the area yesterday were not around today. Got some video but don't know how to post it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I'll be hitting the walleyes in Bay Of Quinte. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  18. Well, opening morning and after not seeing much while scouting I had a couple birds gobbling on the roost. Unfortunately after fly down they headed the other direction so I moved my blind for tomorrow morning hunt. Went back toward my car and set up and had two birds come in. They returned two more times and one had a very small beard and I let him walk. Also saw several deer and it was a beautiful morning to be out. Mr. walleye got a tom this morning as did another friend of mine. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  19. Fish a large SLR bay midday today. Fished in 6 fow which was pretty clear and perch were visible everywhere. Needed to sort but still some nice fish. Ended up with just over 6 lbs. of fillets Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Fished with ProfT and Mr Walleye out of Mexico Point. Ran west and found cold clear water (39 -40 degree) and no fish so ran back to Mexico launch where water had color and was 43 degrees but no fish. Ran to Selkirk and hit a 5.2 pounder on rigger in 10 fow. Water was muddy and 43-44 degrees. Stayed in that area and did't move a rod fishing from 7-18 fow. Trolled back toward the ramp with no success so moved out into 20 fow and hit an 8.2 pounder on a bay rat near the surface. Could not find any pattern so called it a day after putting in 6 hours. Others we talked to also had a slow day. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Looks like Kring's is about done. Still plenty of perch but size has decreased significantly. Still managed a half pail in a few hours yesterday but lots of sorting. Time to hit the Lake for Browns tomorrow and try some other spots for perch. Also crappies and bullheads should be available soon. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  22. Took a scouting ride this morning. Historically I'd see 6 or 7 groups of birds strutting in the fields on this short drive. This morning nothing but some deer!!!!! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  23. I scouted the farm I hunt and there was one gobbling on normal roost. I hung out and there were 4 hens, 2 jakes, and a Tom. Saw a single bird in another good spot. At least a few around to chase. I'll be setting a couple blinds very soon. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  24. Just wondering what others were seeing for numbers this spring. Although I haven't been actively scouting due to the awful weather, my general observation is that the bird level is down significantly in my area( northern Jefferson county). Perhaps it is due to the wet summer we had last year or maybe this snowy March and April has them behaving unusually. Anyway, areas that have always had birds seem to have fewer this year. I will be doing more serious scouting this week with the nicer weather. Also, good luck to the youth hunters this weekend! Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I was wrong. Still all females full of eggs just smaller average than last week. I got 4 lbs. 10 oz. of fillets today. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
