  1. From what I have read once you are exposed it is very important to stay out of the sun! (Otherwise bad scarring can occur.) We have Giant Hogweed around here and I don't know how to tell the difference between a small hogweed and wild parsnip, wild celery, etc. Any big plant with large white flower tops I just leave alone or hit with roundup.
  2. According to an article in syracuse.com, the HS graduation rate in Syracuse has increases from 55% in 2015 to 65% in 2020. This is a sad situation, and very complex. www.syracuse.com/schools/2020/01/syracuse-high-school-graduation-rate-rises-to-645-first-increase-in-3-years.html
  3. I usually find DEC officers to be very reasonable but this does seem extreme. I might suggest taking the pink Zebco pole to the judge and politely plea the case.
  4. My lifetime sportsman came in the mail today, seems early to me.
  5. First deer with a 45 lb Shakespeare recurve bow with Fred Bear broadheads and fiberglass arrows. First small game (rabbits, grouse) with 870 Wingmaster bought for me by my father, who didn't hunt. (It must have been almost a weeks pay at the time, we had a lot of mouths to feed. Thanks, father.)
  6. Yes, a great choice. Sit outside on picnic tables next to the lake and watch a sunset. Primarily fish but you can get hot dogs and hamburgers. The ice cream place that was mentioned above is called Bevs. It can be busy at dinner time but you generally get your food within 15 minutes or so.
  7. Shoot, lost my reply. The sub shop would be an economical choice, great subs but limited seating. On the East side there is an assortment of fast food joints (Burger King, Wendys, Taco Bell, McD). There is Azteca Mexican Restaurant on 104, East side. Good food and moderately priced, not open on Sunday. There is Canales Italian restaurant on the West side on Utica Street. I would say fair food, perhaps slightly more expensive. Both of those restaurants have lots of seating. There is Fajita Grill on the West side, I have not been there in years. There is the Red Sun on West First Street
  8. What are you looking for? How many? Is this an adult team?
  9. I am willing to donate my auto/start chip on my 2019 Silverado. I turn it off every time I remember when I start the truck, what a PIA. I find it hard to believe it actually saves any gas, at least for the way I drive.
  10. I switched from Bemans to Gold Tips. I have used them for about 8 years I think. I have no complaints. They are a little pricey, but what isn't?
  11. Nice haul and Happy Birthday Rob!
  12. Well I have picked them (milk snakes) up to move them and sure they will try to bite. But those black water snakes are crazy, I have a small pond and have had them chase after me. They have attitude. Today I saw something neat, a big water snake entangled with several smaller ones. I assume the big one was female and they were making more water snakes. I was on the lawn tractor and they all slipped into my pond quickly.
  13. It does look like a milk snake to me but as others have said they are usually pretty passive. I like them, water snakes not so much!
  14. I have bought a higher concentration or permethrin on Amazon for even cheaper than Tractor Supply. (I think 38%.) Some companies don't ship to NY. By the way, I spray the foundation of my house with the same concentration, it works great at keeping all ants and other bugs from wanting to get in. Wasps will avoid building nests under eaves. It will last on the foundation for 6 or 8 weeks. As has been said often, be very careful around cats, it is highly toxic to felines.
  15. Coyote numbers seem to vary year to year and certainly from location to location. I have never seen as many coyotes in Northern Oswego and Cayuga Counties as I see now. On the other hand in our camp in Livingston County they are not common. I do believe they change turkey behavior. I see the yotes patrolling roosting areas in the mornings and have heard the turkeys putting alarm calls from the trees. It is what it is.
