  1. Water means nothing to deer in my experience of Hunting them in the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge during drought years like this year. In fact I made. Post on this forum a week or so ago concerning this very topic. I suggest spending your efforts and money on food plots and cover. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. They are legal. The "full" model. Not the swept. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. EXODUS broadheads! See my 2020 Post. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I have to finally conclude that water is simply not a factor in hunting deer. I hunt the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, for 17 years now. This year is a drought. There's been a few other years like it. I can walk to my all spots with nothing but ankle high hiking shoes. There's been years when these same spots required hip waders. So, when this occurs, I seek out water sources for trail camera set ups and I have even hunted them with no success. Yesterday I thought the hidden ponds I found near soybean and corn fields would be getting hit hard by deer, for water, since it's the only water around. Just as in other drought years, I found that NO, the deer are not going there. Hardly any tracks in the mud that encircles the ponds. I am now convinced that water is simply not a good strategy for deer hunting, even in a drought year. Where they get their water I have no idea, but I can assure you these ponds are the only water sources within a half mile to mile away. The next closest would be oak orchard Creek, about a mile away. Perplexing. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. What do you use as a lure in the scrape? A dripping Gizmo? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Me too. My tree was covered in poison ivy. By time I realized it I had already been breaking the vines and removing them as I climbed up. It's on my wrists. I went to dermatologist last year for same thing and he gave me this steroid cream. It was the only thing that worked. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Here's more pictures. Bullseye's at 20, 30, and 35 yards! They hit 3 inches right and 3 inches Lower than the Field points. So made a slight adjustment and this is the result. I unscrew the head, pull the arrow, and fire again, and it hits in the black every time. I could not be more happy. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. After over 40 years of bow hunting and trying many types and brands of broadheads I eventually settled on the Two blade Rage. But, I was never totally happy with them because of the retaining o rings or plastic rings. I just bought some EXODUS fixed broadheads. Sacrificed one for target shooting. After a slight sight adjustment, these broadheads fly and shoot better than my Field points! Bullseye's at 20, 30 and 35 yards which is my max. I thought it might be a fluke so I screwed another head onto a different arrow. Same result. These things are amazing. Made in the USA. I will attempt to post pictures but this forum usually doesn't allow me to. EXODUS full points. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Yep, me too. They don't bite. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Yes, jack mackerel works too Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Well I haven't used them much, but I just use the tuna from can. Fill the Space. You also use anchovies paste, and I was thinking of buying some Racoon bait from FNT post. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I had a brads super bait on too. Filled mine with tuna. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. How has your Walleye Fishing been? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Nothing! My dismal fishing season continues. On advice of a charter deck hand went to 450 and trolled to 500 fow. Two hours of zilch with nothing on the screen. Had 45 degrees 95 down.so went into 259 fow since there was a line of boat trolling at 300. I had 46 degrees as I recall, down 80. Do temp seemed fine. Saw one bait ball. No marks. Gave up. But my new lower unit is working good. Yesterday went to Catt Creek for walleyes, and it is just as bad. Nobody catching, and little to nothing on the screen. 2020 sucks.

  16. I run them the chute all the time. Last time, it got into a dipsey. Had to cut out 100 feet of copper to get it undone. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Thanks, I'll try the state launch. I did not get up there yet. That trip fell through. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Yes, every time I release a fish (almost) it floats away......so I don't Release them anymore unless they're caught off a rigger. I need one of those fish grabbers I guess. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Motor is running good now. I found a broken clamp on the fuel line, so I don't know if it was getting air, and if that caused anything or not. Boat hasa 90 gal tank, and I have it piped to both the 175HP, and the 9.8 kicker (which is a 4 stroke). With the VRO I am very happy that I just have an oil tank for the big 175 2 stroke, and no oil/fuel mixing. I suppose at some point the VRO will be unavailable and the decision will be made for me.
  20. So my lower unit went bad, and I needed to get the anti theft gizmo nut off. What a job. Nothing on YouTube worked. Of course bought it used so no key. So here's how I did it. I bought a Dremel tool and used the cutting wheel. I slit/cut the cylinder shaped thing that just spins around the actual nut. I cut it in two opposite sides. Then still had to hammer chisel each half off the shaft. Then used vice grips on the now damaged nut to remove it. Seriously, I would NEVER put one of these on, and I'd rather have my prop stolen. I like to be able the easily remove my prop to remove debris and fishing line. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Thanks for all the advice! I ordered a new SEI manufactured unit. But, I also wanted to know if mine was really bad. So I tore it down and found one broken pinion gear tooth, a rounded of forward gear tooth, and a rounded off reverse gear tooth. So, I think the best bet is the $895 SEI unit, and I did buy their Driveshaft so I can just snap it into the lower unit. Should be here Friday.

  22. Thanks guys. L&M contacted me and said he could tear down and replace the seals and see what if anything is bad. Which was good to know that he can do that. I was told some slivers on the magnets are normal. I think mine has a little more than normal, and the oil has water in it. Rather than try a seal kit, and tear down/inspection, I opted for a new unit for $895 and 3 year warranty from Mariners Warehouse, florida. It was one of those decisions you know, tear don, and overhaul, or new unit I can bolt on (hopefully) myself.
  23. thanks for the input. I replaced the fuel lines when I got the rig about 3 years ago. I do need to replace the fuel filter separator can though. new 3 years ago, and never did anything with it. I'll keep the conversion as an option. The VRO has worked well......until the other day, if that was it. Those VRO pumps are $450 for the OEM. I just ordered a brand new lower unit. I was told some slivers on the magnets are normal. I think mine has a little more than normal, and the oil has water in it. Rather than try a seal kit, and tear down/inspection, I opted for a new unit for $895 and 3 year warranty from Mariners Warehouse, florida.
  24. Ok, my lower unit is making metal. Oil is milky. Can anyone recommend a good Marine Engine Mechanic that can get me back in service ASAP? I don't think I want to tackle this myself unless I have to. Site won't allow me to post pictures. Evinrude 1992 model EX175ENC. HELP!. I will tow boat to your facility, or you can come here, but it has to stay on the transom. Garry. 716 481 9875. Please Call me. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. UPDATE: Motor started and ran flawlessly down the Niagara River and back for 16 miles round trip. So, I have no idea what was causing the starting/rich issue. But, I may have other problems. Motor was making clacking sound I've never heard before (or am I being paranoid now?) . Concerned because when I changed the lower gear oil a few trips ago, there were metal slivers on the magnets, and the oil was milky. So, I'll drain it and check this today. Not what I need. Looks complicated. Nothing coming from prop area, so if its leaking its an internal seal driveshaft maybe...UGH!
