Re: Renewing Outdoor Card Hunting / Fishing when turning 65

I am not sure how it applies to today. In the past, for my dad (birthday July) we renewed the card but did not purchase the fishing license part of it, just the hunting part. But remember, if you do this, you will not have a fishing license and only after you turn 65 will you be allowed to fish. If ...

Re: Morning or afternoon hunts

I prefer morning hunts, but in my last years hunting, I had limited hunting areas and the areas dictated how I hunted them. Not every location premitted me the chance to sneak in not detected for mornings, and some areas I couldn't access undetected for the evening.

Re: Just wondering

I have seen what you are discribing many times .......

If you look closely, if it is the same, it will look like they are jumping for movement. I was told that they were "snow fleas", not sure if that is accurate or not.

Re: Suppressor 400 speed

It isn't available yet. I’ve been seeing them listed for sale, so at least some places have them already. I’m just waiting on user reports I could be wrong on that. I see some places have them in stock in their online catalogs. I'm not buying one. I'm not buying one. I'm not buying one. I'm not buy...

Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

Ya I don't get it . If your only reason is that a scope makes it more efficient at making a killing shot and all that matters is making a good shot then we should all be hunting with modern firearms as they are the most efficient. Bow seaon is not about using more and more efficient weapons or thei...

Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

Well then we should all be using scoped rifles if efficiency is all that matters. Sorry ...... but I feel that you are being totally ridiculous. A scoped rifle should give you 1/2" groups at 100 yards while a scoped cossbow is about 1/2" at 30 yards. Your target on an animal is about 5-7" and you s...

Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

I don't disagree that scopes make the weapon more accurate whether that means less wounding or not thats just an opinion. The issue for me is that as more and more technology is added to the crossbow yes it gets easier and more efficient to use. I honestly don't see this as good for its continued u...

Re: BC Proposal to BAN Scopes on Crossbows

I'm not sure how you can just make a blanket statement that it will increase wounding and loss rates . My problem with scopes is that they give certain people a believe that they can take shots they shouldn't and yes does make them more efficient in bow season. I have friends that bought crossbows ...

Re: Re living the shot

I agree, the memories are a trophy all their own This above quote is spot on. Years ago, my family ran a very busy fishing charter business in Lake Ontario. I don't remember how many times I was asked " would you mount that fish". I had always replied that was an unfair question as I had seen many ...

Re: Skin tumor

I’m sorry but I would NOT eat any part of that deer! I wouldn’t even donate it either. That deer would be buried if I had shot it! I don’t trust any scientists or dnr personnel. The deer I have seen was much worse looking, actually had some dangle down a lot. You could not even see any sign of it o...

Re: Skin tumor

I can't see your picture, but your description is something that I am familiar with. I forget what it is called but it has no connection into the meat. All the meat is safe. When we first came upon this, we took the deer straight into a MNR office and their biologist came out and inpected the deer. ...

Re: scent free vs. cover scent

A few years ago, I participated in a "artificial scent study" using trail cameras. Once every 2 to 3 weeks we were supplied with different scents to be placed in front of trail cameras, 10 to 15 yards off known well used trails. You would be surprised at the conclusion from that study. Everytime a n...
