  1. Newb Questions (Bear with me)

    `Start with Dan Keating 's books ; ie " Keating on Kings " as a basic then move on with other editions ! All the information you need can be found on this site or " Spoonpullers " ! ps. great pun on the bear / bare ! pps. My family doctor was out on smaller Ontario lake seeing an open boat apparently adrift without anyone on board : Had to check it out found 2 bares ; told them " once a king always king but once a knight is enough ! "
  2. Food plothelp

    Rabbits have been my main " predator " of young pear and apple trees ; tree wrap works + spray bark with a strong smell insecticide such as diazinon !
  3. Food plothelp

    ? For the long term peripheral fruit eg apple and pear and forage nut trees ?
  4. Help identifying tracks...

    FYI American Frontiersman mag winter 2018 did an article pg.58 " Finessing Fishers " ! ps Today us Seinfeld fans celebrate " Festivus " sic !
  5. Wife wins again.

    Looks like a keeper !
  6. to many wires going to my batteries

    Not sure this is an answer to your ? but I put a kill switch to the negative of my battery [ when done the battery is taken out of the circuit to eliminate chance of a leak or short ] . as posted use a fuse panel with fuses of the correct low rating !
  7. Any update in the report of a woman shot ? after dark by ? deer hunter ?
  8. Atlantics

    Not sure why one would eat old spawning fish who may be in a process of natural decomposition ; the problem may have been in the preparation ( bears are omnivores will eat almost anything !)
  9. Not sure of the benzene analogy ; I wash my hands with Ivory soap [ no scent ] before starting to fish to decrease my human scent on the lures ! One of my friends would routinely clean his hands with PCBs dies a slow death from lymphoma which he blamed on over work [ he did not have the TIME to fish and would not take mine fish ] Maybe this thread is over !
  10. Below covers title

    Woman walking dog shot by ? Hunter !
  11. A lot healthier than smoking tobacco or marihuana ! " Rubber on the road " ! No proven health risks from eating fish from Lake Ontario or Lake Erie : I have been eating them for 60 + years ( all the guys I started with on Lake O who liked sausage hamburg etc and did not eat my fish are dead ! Not sure of the connection ) and I remain in great shape ! ( slowing down a bit " Once a king always a king but once a knight is enough !)
  12. Then eat hamburg , sausage and farm fish full of ???
  13. Another great hunt with friends

    Again we harvest all the meat ; we would not leave the legs the only issue is the time factor : our best shoot was 23 geese and paying the butcher ( he needed $ 125 for the the work !)
  14. Another great hunt with friends

    Liver is high in saturated fat and may not be indicated for certain diets :Wild goose meat is total protein the pork is added to improve ? flavour ,
  15. Another great hunt with friends

    We use every bit of meat that we can separate which can make it a slow process ; at best 3/4 hr. Per bird : I then open the cavity and ad the heart ( liver goes separate to an Asian friend )
  16. Another great hunt with friends

    We have a local butcher make us goose sausage ; he makes it up with 80 % goose & 20 % pork + spices to taste ! Cleaning the birds can be a slow process to separate the meet ; as I tell people you cannot buy this and We know EXACTLY what is in the meet !
  17. AR-15 (.223) ammo for deer?

    Your barrel may be scrap ; if not the gun may not shoot that bullet ; eg. I was given a Roberts .257 but difficulty getting ammo apart from Rem 117 gr. Hand loaded 85 gr Hornady 85 gr. V Max :You guessed it , the rifle shot the VMax better than the bullet it was made for ( the gun was old , there was no Hornday Vmax at that time )
  18. Atlantics

    Poaching = destructive harvesting with little respect of the resource ! One wonders how much habitat loss in the late 1880s played in the demise of the Atlantic salmon when we heard of the pointless slaughter of the fish ! Biology 101 : biology has natural ups and downs of all species ; if the species suffers an added attack eg. Poaching it may disappear ! Other examples : the turkey was wiped out in Ontario not in NYS ! Walleye : over harvested and poached ! The deer population is down in the Niagara peninsula Ont. How can we prove it ie not due to poaching .
  19. Atlantics

    Atlantic salmon were native to Lake Ontario but were wiped out primarily due to poaching ( ie land owners on the north shore would fork them as pig food etc ; loss of habitant was a factor ) . Present attempts on the north shore has met with little success reasons are unclear to me ?
  20. AR-15 (.223) ammo for deer?

    Bottom line : BULLET PLACEMENT ! ; indigenous , native ( not indian re : political bs sic ) people in northern Ontario will take moose with a 22. Lr with a shot through the EYE ! I have seen at buck run - 100 yards with a 180 grain 30:06 through the heart ! I use 223s for coyotes ;I have a Roberts 257 for deer . Nuff said by me !
  21. walleye stocking lake ontario

    Up date from SCG&F recent post 10/28 ; will see Fish Management Zone 16 Management Plan MNR Ontario : Will watch with interest ie. will we see progress in the walleye fishery ?
  22. Carbon in my Merc!

    Question remains why should a four stroke engine carbon up ? I use Sea Foam in my 2 cycle OBs because the oil/gas mixture will eventually carbon up . I also use high test ? Octane 92 without ethanol ; what grade of gas do you use ?
  23. J-Plugs

    Not one fish on a J-plug this season !
  24. Lure Painting

    Note article in Great Lakes Angler Oct/Nov 2017 pg. 62 " Black Lures Matter " ( super PUN or what !) Basically Cp. Mike Schoonveld paints plugs with " Stops Rust flat protective enamel in black . " This battered J-Plug will soon be black and be back in the game ."!
  25. walleye stocking lake ontario

    Walleye are native to Lake Ontario ; the Ontario MNR have done little to improve the fishery with major efforts for the Atlantic salmon yet to be achieved : Note article in Great Lakes Angler Oct/Nov 2017 by Darryl Choronzey " The Biggest Fish Story Never Told-Ontario's Atlantiic Salmon Fiasco " Ditto on the King is " King " ! But who long can it remain as a mainly put and take sport with our Canadian agenda foe Lake Trout and Atlantics !
