Lake Ontario by the numbers in Canada

Getting information from another country is never an easy proposition when facing deadlines. While the Great Lakes Preview Issue of NY Outdoor News focused on Empire State waters for Lake Ontario, the information from the Province of Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources, and Forestry came up short.
Here is some of the information that came through from the co-managers of the lake.

Wind, snow, sleet or rain don’t stop turkeys from being turkeys

When mating season arrives for wild turkeys, harsh weather does little to halt their spring breeding activity. 
When spring gobbler season opened in Pennsylvania April 29, I found myself huddled against a medium-sized white pine tree as the darkness of night was beginning to fade in the eastern sky. Rain was falling, and the gathered moisture on pine needles dropped heavily on my hat.

A day afield with Gary Clancy: turkey lessons learned and passed along

Ten years ago on a crisp April morning, my father-in-law, Gary Clancy, and I were rummaging through his old “huntin’ shed,” methodically tracking down some gear for a day of catch-and-release fly fishing.
As we were sifting through the tangled web of outdoor gear, searching for one of his nymph boxes and a match to his other hip boot, I found an unopened package with a set of turkey calls. Because I was an aspiring new turkey hunter with my first hunt quickly approaching, I asked if I could use the turkey call set so I could practice for the upcoming season.
