  1. They go in population cycles, and are most abundant during migrations. Very cool little bird. Unfortunately....they taste like...dog turd (my closest uninformed guess of what a DT tastes like). anyone else have any experience eating them?
  2. Here is an open invitation to black powder shooters for our clubs spring black powder shoot, June 10 and 11th. We are a small mellow club, strictly traditional cap and ball (no conicals, open sights only) . We meet for a weekly league shoot every Monday night and have several open shoots a year. We are located at 2298 Rt 6 Fulton NY. Our spring Verne Macdougall Memorial Shoot is June 10 and 11, Shooting starts at about 9. Hope to see ya there!
  3. Not much happening there. 18 keepers on the north end. We talked with a student surveying fish takes, and he informed us they pretty much finished up about a week ago. At least we got the boat out.

    Cayuga Lake

    I am late getting out this year due to projects, etc, but hope to hit the north end of Cayuga Lake tomorrow for perch. Anyone been out? any luck?
  5. hmmm.....not how I pictured you...........Do you dress up more for hunting?
  6. I breezed through it yesterday afternoon. They arent as much fun as they used to be. I used to love the military surplus rifles and gear, but there is very little ( in comparison ) any more. Lots of modern arms, but I enjoy the older stuff much more. There were a lot more booths with non gun stuff....T shirts, foods, etc. and empty booths.
  7. They look like the common place inexpensive revolvers offered by H+R, High Standard, etc. seventy years ago... I probably am in the minority, but after shooting/owning several Henrys, I feel they are highly....HIGHLY, overrated.
  8. Awesome. I hope to get out in the next week...most likely Cayuga.
  9. Hmm. The Winchester 94 30-30 stock version was the tactical weapon of choice for many generations of lawmen, and gave pretty darn good service.
  10. My 45-70 (Browning falling block) loves 3031 with a 350 g. Speer Round nose. I think I would rather not know how the Encore bucks with the big .458.
  11. We havent been getting the deep sub zero killing frosts like we used to, thus many more of the little buggers surviving through the winter. They have always been here. I pluck one off regularly...like all antibiotics, we can be doing more bad than good by running to the doc for every sniffle or tick bite. A tick needs to be on for 24 hrs to transmit Lyme disease. Most of us shower much more frequently than that. Pluck the little sucker off, wash, and watch the spot. Of course you are going to have a small local red irritation spot for a couple days, but you watch for a "bullseye' developing around the bite. Then you go to the doc.
  12. I have to have my coffee...but limit to only two cups in the a.m. I certainly am no "connoisseur", and have never been in a Starbucks, etc. I usually have my generic coffee maker ready to go in the a.m. as I walk by it, but it died a few weeks ago. I am now using my Revere Ware coffee pot, and am in no hurry to replace the coffee maker. It is a ten cup job, and really should down size it.
  13. ? Two of my bears were well over 200...250, three hundred respectfully. I found their meat to be delicious. I think that many folks simply dont treat bear meat like real meat. They frequently dont gut it/skin it promptly, leaving the bear to show as a trophy hanging intact, and the black hide soaks up the suns heat and retains heat, with the layered fat, can turn a bear quickly . Smaller bears cool quicker. Garbage fed bears tend to have a different taste.
