  1. We're you Vaccinated? Check this site. www.lc.org/Vaccine. Lots of adverse reactions and problems are happening to people. It might explain it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. How do the seeds fall through the standing buckwheat and reach the ground? Seems like many or most of the seeds would not reach the ground but be caught in the leaves and stalks of the buckwheat. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I lost my Dad, October 12 due to Covid and the Hospital protocols. He was my hunting buddy for 45 years. He was the finest rifle shot I have ever known. Through those years I chased hundreds of deer out to him, in Pennsylvania. He was an expert at hitting running deer, and I can only think of several times he missed over 45 years. More than that, he was a very fine man and friends to so many. He was 84 and still active. He taught me how to hunt. He taught me how to live and treat others. If your Dad and Mom are still living, don't take it for granted. Visit often. Call often. Sincerely, Garry Mitcham of Clarence NY. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. For deer, if you want a short bolt action, .243. very little recoil and deadly. My 10 year old nephew got 3 deer last year, with a single shot 243. I've killed dozens with mine. If you want a long action bolt, or plan to go out west, get .270, or a .280. I have a 280 and it's a tremendous cartridge. If want a lever action, get a 30/30 in a Marlin, but lever guns are expensive now. If you want a pump they are available in a variety of calibers. Bullet selection is important no matter what, but today there are many good bullets in most calibers. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Absolutely agree! Plastic Stocks have no character and don't belong on a rifle! I live wood sticks, and have both wood and plastic. Wood is much nicer to carry, and no problem with warping. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Like some have said, there is no good brush gun. The best way to get through brush, on a standing deer, is to thread the needle through a hole in the brush which can only be done with a MOA capable scoped rifle. A 45/70 is just up from a 12 ga slug gun as far as range. They do less meat damage than a high velocity .243, or .270, and the .243 will ruin more meat than the .270. But, they are neat guns, and certainly nice to have in any collection, but don't get pie in the sky hopes up for performance. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. Fished Olcott July 27 from 5 pm to about 7. Went to 450 FOW and trolled north ending at 508 FOW. Caught a 24 lb king and a steelhead. King took large paddle with meat on diver out 180 feet. Steelhead took spoon down 75. Lots of grass in the water so be sure to put a debris catcher swivel or bead 6 feet up from your lure! Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
