    Live From The Water 2019 Edition

    This is the third year for this thread, very similar to the Live From The Woods deer hunting thread. Post in this thread using your smart phone (or other device you can get to the internet with) from your boat, stream, farm pond or wherever you are trying to fool those fish with your thoughts, current conditions, pictures, sightings, etc. Don't forget, the site is accessible via your mobile device and there is even an app - Tapatalk enabled! Lets see those pics!

    It changes your FOC, so yes, you have to adjust for them.

    Just like making any other change to your arrows, you have to tune your setup for them.

    Genesee County CWD?

    Yes. You could have a stand on a trailer if you wanted, as long as whatever motorized thing that pulls it around isnt attached to it.

    Genesee County CWD?

    Im not involved with it like that. I would say they do more than 50 hunts a season though, just based on what they have said in the past. Its not a huge ranch though, and 50 hunts a year would be signifacant for their operation.

    Genesee County CWD?

    My girlfriends uncle owns a farm and hunting ranch in Ontario county. His place is packed full with hunts every year. I have a good idea of what people put into their operations, and I dont look at them the way I used to. Its not my thing, but I dont begrudge anyone from participating. Just as long as they dont try to pass the deer off as being shot in the wild.

    Treestand types

    I use all kinds except climbers, which are pointless where I hunt, not many limb free straight trees in the right places. Mostly hang ons with ladder sticks though. They are far more versatile than any other type.

    Yeah Baby

    Thats how I do it basically, but Ive only done the nitrogen thing once. Maybe Ill try that this year, although I went real heavy with the triple 15 when I planted.
  10. WNYBuckHunter

    Yeah Baby

    Gotcha. Whatever works for you, I was just wondering. Maybe next year Ill do a section of a plot the way you do and see how it does. My big concern would be crushing plants that are already growing with the ATV/spreader. If I was row planting, then no big deal there, but I broadcast.

    Spraying Cleth in a clover plot

    Ok, Ill have to try getting it done this week before I leave for vacation. Ill toss some plant oil in there.
  12. I was able to get some Cleth to try and control the weeds and grasses in my clover plot, and Im wondering if it is too late to use it this year. If it is, Ill just mow the plot one more time and then spray it in the spring. What say you?
  13. WNYBuckHunter

    Yeah Baby

    This is so strange to me, I have never actually heard of fertilizing after planting unless you end up not putting enough in the ground to begin with and notice stunted growth, etc after it gets going. What is the thought behind adding it later and not working it into the ground initially? Here is what Ive always done, and had great luck with: -Spray plots with Gly/2-4d/plant oil -Wait 2-3 weeks -Mow dead stuff as short as possible -Run tiller 1-2 passes depending on conditions -Spread fertilizer -Run tiller on shallower setting 1 pass -The next day I broadcast the seed -Roll plot
  14. WNYBuckHunter

    Yeah Baby

    Looks good! I always fertilize when I plant, then if needed, Ill add more once its growing. Thats only happened once or twice over the years.

    Is it time to put in for rutcation yet?

    Im not sure that it will. Deer will still respond to the pressure of opening week/weekend like they always do. Im still taking thanksgiving week off and a couple of day after the opener. My land is smack in the middle of a good size unpressured area. As long as I keep pressure off of my place, the deer move pretty naturally through there, even during gun season, because the majority of the pressure is around that area, a little ways from my place.

    I practice with them all the time. I just shoot spots instead of groups.

    Is it time to put in for rutcation yet?

    Is it just me, or does it feel really strange to have the gun opener so far ahead of Thanksgiving this year? It has me all screwed up for vacation. So far I have Oct 30, 31 Nov 1, 7, 8, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 Dec 16, 17

    Ive never had an issue with them. I actually have a small finishing nail that I push into my wrist sling, and use that for turning them off.

    Those are basically the same as Nockturnal. You wont regret buying them. I love them.

    Getting back into cars

    Growing up I was always around old muscle cars, helping friends and family to work on them, restore them, going to car shows and races. When I got into my teens, I started buying a few cool old cars to play around with for myself. First one I had was a 62 Dodge Dart wagon that had a 413 Wedge and a crossram intake. She was ugly as all sin, but that car got more looks and comments than any I have owned. Second one was a 56 Belair with full custom paint, a 327 with a 4 speed and 63 corvette wheels. I made a huge mistake getting rid of that one. Next was a 62 Belair that started out with an inline 6, which was replaced by a 400 Pontiac. It was fun, but I never really loved that car. The last of my old cars was a 73 Dart Swinger that I got most of the way done and then sold to fund things that were more family oriented. Other than those, Ive had a few other fun vehicles, but nothing that wasnt my daily driver. Last year I started looking for a summer car, and being a Mopar guy at heart, I naturally went to the Challengers. I started looking around and was leaning heavilly toward either a Scat Pack Shaker or T/A. I stopped in to a dealer one day to take a look at what they had, but nothing was really catching my eye. The salesman asked if Id like to take a look at a Hellcat that they just took in on trade. At first I declined, because I figured I had no need for a 700hp street car, and they were usually more money than I was looking to spend. He ended up talking me into driving it, and by the time I got back, you couldnt grind the smile off of my face. The Scat Pack cars were a distant memory in my mind as well. So after that, I started doing all of the research I could about the ups and downs with these cars. I decided what I wanted ans started the search. A couple of weeks ago I ran across almost exactly what I wanted. It checked all of the boxes for options, but the color wasnt what I was thinking. I kept looking, but something just kept drawing me back to that car. After staring at the pics many times, I decided that I was fine with the color combo, so I contacted the dealer. We haggled a bit and finally came down to what I feel is a great deal. Yesterday I finished the deal up and we got everything in line. Now Im just waiting for the final couple of things to be buttoned up and the car to be delivered. Shes a 2016 8 speed auto with 18k miles on it.

    A lot of guys put blue painters tape on that area before they go to the track. I’ll probably do that next time.

    Hunting my land just got 10x easier

    They will use it. Deer are lazy. One of my buddys has a similar bridge at his place. Deer used to jump across the creek all over the place. After the bridge went in, the vast majority of deer traffic for a couple of hundred yards is on that bridge.
  25. Well, throw and grow is a bit of a farce IMO, you still need seed to soil contact. Scratch the surface with a rock rake or something and toss it down. It will grow.
