The Port Rowan marina was still "iced in" out to the end of the wharf and then it was open water. Although there is still a considerable amount of ice along the shore the...

    Hello Steve, If there is something (especially if it is something that is questionable) that affects us as waterfowlers then it is our (their) business to question what is happening. Jerome

    Hello Guys, Thankfully the OFAH and the other Provincial Associations have identified this issue as one of five (5) national issues that they have focused on. If you are not a member of the OFAH then perhaps you should join and support the staff who are looking into this issue for us. Jerome

    Hello Guys, I think that there was a misunderstanding with an "automatic weapon" and an "autoloader shotgun" which is in fact a "semi-automatic" shotgun. I heard a while back that the Liberals have recognized their oversight and have acknowledged that it was a misunderstanding ... that makes...

    Ice Conditions at Long Point - 2019

    Hello Guys, Well ... the Big Freeze eventually came last night with the calm weather. I saw ice extending from my seawall out to about 400 yards (meters) or more.

    Hello Guys, The ice is still out of the entire bay as of this morning but so are the ducks ... where are they? With the low temperature forecasted for tonight there will probably be some ice forming again along the shoreline but it should be gone by the weekend. I heard that the puddlers are...
