    Turkey 2018

    Saturday morning off the roost had a gobbler working his way to the cow pasture , I was 80 yards away belly crawling in the tall grass. I got to 60 then a calf chased the gobbler away . We decided to go back at 10am and had 1 sound off by him self around 11am , but he was not alone. 1 long beard , 3 Jake's and 4 hens . They were in the open hardwoods on a nice flat strutting and wouldn't leave . He would answer evey time I called but not move , I can see his fan at times as he is strutting. I have to make a move so I got my fan out and moved in slowly scratching the leaves as I moved in, turning and popping the fan up. He saw it and to come see . Lucky for me he was the boss and had to see who I was and not the jakes. He came in strutting the whole way to 15 yards and lights out . 1in hooks 9in beard have to guess 18 lbs . Got it on video with the cell phone . What a way to finish up the season. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Turkey 2018

    Got it done this morning in the rain on a stalk mission , I missed opening weekend so I feel a little better now. I saw a tom and 3 hens sitting in the corner of the field and figured I could get it done no problem with some belly crawl and stealth mode . I crawled thru 60 yards of poison ivy in the rain and if I'm down wind of that stuff I'm done can't wait to see if this ivy wash is worth it. But any how I got to 40 yards and they started to walk my way and I cartwheeled him at 30 . I just know the pattern they take and cut them off. Big bird I'm glad I didn't call at him probably would have hung up . 21.8 lbs 10in beard , spurs 1 1/4 other 1 1/8 . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Youth weekend

    I got a call last night from a buddy who has a kid to take out in the morning and asked if I could call for them ... I'm in . My buddy put 2 long beards to bed and said it was going to be a easy quick hunt. I've heard that before. So we get out to the spot and sneak into probably a 100 yards on top of a ridge , I sat back 40 yards . He's roosted halfway down the hill. He was gobbling hot on the roost. I did a fly down call and he flew down and was strutting on top of the ridge at 80 yards. I then scratch the leaves and called . He gobbled his head off coming in searching and the next thing I hear is bang and the turkey running away. The next spot we go to we get a turkey gobbling. We circled all the way around him and move in to his direction calling as we are walking trying to get in his bubble again cuz he went quiet. He then gobbles at 80 yards away in the hardwoods and we sit down. He comes into about 50 yards full strut in the wide open. I didn't want him to miss again so we waited. He skirted right around us . Now that's 1 is over. We drive around to another spot and a turkey is full strut in a lady's front yard then walks around the barn. We get out and ask for permission and the lady says go right on ahead have at it. So we went around the barn . The turkey was out in the field strutting with a hen. I then called and he answers. I tell the youngster to get in the barn , a run down barn with boards missing and holes all over perfect to hunt turkeys out of. I tell him to get ready he might come back this way. I call again and 2 gobblers answer in the other direction but coming right in on a string. The rest is history. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    Word on the street possible mallard limit change to the daily limit. I guess they want to change it to 2 per day. Anyone else hear that ? Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    Yes they breed in different areas. There are tons of local breeding Mallards in the area I live and have been since I can remember. Black dark numbers are good along the coast and Inland on migration but nowhere near mallards , but soon to be 2 and 2 ? That's not right. The way they count birds is different than what I'm used to I guess. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    Anyone ever think the high numbers of Mallards in 1998 was due to duck Hunters getting out of hunting when they took away lead in 91 . 7 years of breeding with alot less Hunters equals lots of birds. Around 1998 with record high numbers in every magazine out there expect the duck hunting sport to Boom. Newer steel shot non-toxic loads brings more people. In return lower numbers. It's called common sense not much people have anymore. Now with a lower number of birds ,and breeding . If u don't fix the hen harvest. The old saying you can't fix stupid.

    Wow if they allow 2 hens then they are the stupidest people on Earth. Can't make chicks with out hen's. So there is the same amount of blacks as mallards in the Atlantic flyway ? Why is balcks at 2 ? Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    I was sent a big survey book this year that look like a exam for duck hunting. Not the typical 1 that u get once in a while . It asked all types of questions 80 plus . I was wondering what it was all about ... Guess mine didn't matter . I know the western zone late season dates area all about the finger lake clubs crying about divers ( Timing the cold). Then the mallards move thru when it closed in the break . Then people complain about numbers of birds. Like gamble said just going to have to ride it out !! Sandwick ... Its way far to the left Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    Did they give a reason to not push this this year ? It's common sense if numbers are down. Hens make chicks how about 1 hen? Jump to a conclusion but waits a whole hunting season . Get the guy /group the f out of there . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    I say 1 step at a time , try 3 mallards . Then go from there. Cutting it in half would push some people away. 3 per person would put u in that 9 to 15. 3 to 5 people in a normal size group. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mallard limit

    2 is not worth the time and work . I think the state should try 3 before they jump to 2. Not a good way to get people into hunting when u go out and bang bang u go home. Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    2017 WATERFOWL SEASON

    The 2017 season is here 🦆 !!! I didn't have much time the passed couple of weeks to scout but I had a field to go to ... There is only about 50 birds in it , I only planned on hunting it if i couldn't find anything else. Well I didn't find anything else so I went solo not to waste anyone's time. I packed light 2 dozen shells and 4 full bodies no blind just put some straw on top of me. At 645 had a flock of 15 come to my right and land I sat up and they just looked at me , I lined up heads and put the smack down. Got 6 one was a sailor that I never found . Then a 3 pack comes in my face and they go down . To end the day a solo comes in to take it. Funny part was that's all I saw . I can't find any birds Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Found a roost spot with a couple thousand snows on it , I cant hunt the pond but I can hunt the field next to it. Would have shot alot if I could water swat them. They all got up at once and flew over. I went 6 for 6 and my buddy crippled 1 lol . Sent from my Pixel XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
