I'm a non facebook guy too. I'm the only person my friends and family know who doesn't have it. I still have friends wives or GF's mail me invitations or drop them off for parties or functions cause I don't have facebook. Hahaha

I would hate to see this site closed. I also don't do face book. I am on another site also but it has't had many postings in a while. I also miss a lot of the old posters.

I saw that it closed as well, thatís too bad. The number of posts are definitely down here from years gone by but hopefully we are here to stay. I suspect it is due to all the other forms of social media. We also have a Facebook page for OTB but the forum is still here as well. Hopefully it gets busy this fall with some stories and pictures.

I usually only come around here this time of year, hunting season. Always some good info and I used to like the trailcam pics.I was sorry to see the Ont Hunting Lodge close too. As far as this site needing more members, it has plenty of members, just not enough that post. Now with photobucket gone, you can't post a pic? Or at least I don't know how? I post my trailcam pics over at A Passion for Whitetails, it lets you post them right on the fourm. As far as facebook goes, I don't go on there because they take too many liberties like taking your whole email contact list.

Steve, I am also on A Passion for Whitetails but the post have been slower than a snail. I used to be there daily but now just drop in from time to time. All boards seem to have the same problems. Not many posts and with the problem with Photobucket that is tough as I am not very good with the computer. I still check this site out daily though.

Folks are too busy with the eel hunt, moose wrangling and chasing people from southern Ontario away.

Just last week, we had to pack several people from somewhere down south onto a bus. Seems they didn't think to bring warm clothes or food. My buddy Johnny found a group of you sitting on the side of 17, half frozen, claiming that nobody would feed them. :crazy: One guy wanted to know where the local Starbucks was. :crazy:

Johnny straightened them out. He put them in the back of his pickup and drove those tourists over to the OPP station. He called them the "Frozen Chosen". One guy who said he was from North York (?) wanted to know where all the Frenchies were. He said he learned all about them in school, and that they had to be close. We were at Montreal River.

You folks don't get out much, do you?

I'll never forget the first time we saw tourists from down south. Big, shiny trucks and SUVs, drinking lattes and bragging about their new hunting gear, bought at Canadian Tire. Yeah, that's quality. :haha: Not worth the powder to blow them to hell, but it was fun to spend the money and pretend that you were a hunter.

"We're going to harvest a moose!" one fellow said.

We laughed and asked him if he brought his tractor. He was agitated and told us that they were here to maintain the balance of nature. Apparently, they learned about that from watching TV Ontario. Me and the guys told them that if they wanted to "maintain the balance of nature", just stand in the middle of the highway and wait for a truck to run them over. My brother Mike laughed and asked for the guy's truck keys.

Mike asked this tall guy, wearing mascara, a ring in his lip and one leather glove, if he was going to shoot a moose or scare it to death.

Anyway, we told them to buy some souvenirs and go home. We got better things to do than drag frozen bodies out of the bush. I figure you guys got to do something with your money. Just stop at Sudbury and leave it at the Canadian Tire gas bar.

Hey meplat r u hiding in your house afraid that those big bad bears running around up there might get you ! LOL plus who let you use their computer and typed the big words for you !
Only guy I ever met stuck or stranded in the bush was a guy from Atikokan with a flat tire way back in. Guess we should have left him as we at least knew what a spare tire and a jack was LOL.

Sad not knowing how to change a tire and being back in the bush. I have rescued several people while working in the bush as an MNR timber cruising auditor. One that sticks out in my mind was a lodge owner on a no public travel road north of Sioux Narrows. He was walking up the road and in distress. It was cold and wet and he was not dressed for the weather. He was hypothermic and shaking badly. We pumped some coffee into him and heated up the truck to max to get him warm. He was lucky because we had a wolf ahead of our truck not more than a mile from where we pick him up. When asked where his truck was he said back about five miles and it is still running. He had locked his keys in the truck and was going home for the spare set. He wouldn't have made it. Funny thing while driving him home he asked (not very politely)what we were doing on this no travel road (our truck was a rental and had no stickers). I looked at my partner and he was getting ready to pull over, but we couldn't do it. We dropped him off at his lodge and headed back to town.

I'm still trying to figure out what you're saying. lol. I read it a few times. I'm probably missing something as I live under a rock in the bush.

I live just south of Montreal River in the Soo. That area is rugged and no place for unexperienced hunters. I get Meplats comment completely. Some people just don't have a clue and should hook up with a group that can teach them the ropes. Safety first!!!!
