  1. Wheel House build

    Nice looking rig HUJU!! I'm considering a remodel for my shack. I've got a couple questions. What brand is your furnace? Vented? What did you use for the perimeter ceiling lighting? How did you install it?

  8. Clown Down!

    Full body or shoulder mount?

    I've had luck seeing does and the big shooter I've been waiting for but he didn't come into my range last week. Also lots of pictures the last 2 weeks but only little guys and does during the daylight the big boys are still nocturnal. I'm hunting private land in the north metro. Still waiting for the farmer to pick the corn which will be a few days with all the rain we got.

  13. Fish Shack Furnaces

    I built a 8x14 drop down fishhouse a few years ago and planning to remodel the interior. I've been using a Mr. Heater and gonna convert to a lp furnace. I'm looking for some input here. Which furnace Atwood? Suburban? Empire? Goods? Bad? I definately want a vented model but don't want to break the bank. Where's the best place to buy a furnace also?
  14. Hunting reports....

    I didn't get out of work early as planned but ended up in the stand at 3:45. I had 2 does meander thru then at about 4:30 or so Apple of does ended up the picked corn field about a 150 yds out and they fed always looking back. I was hoping is was Mr. big but he never appeared instead it was the movie star Mr. Fork that appeared on my cameras about 10 times a week. He did some chasing but not real hard at all.
  15. Hunting reports....

    I was out tonight and had 4 does in the field 5 minutes after I got up in my stand. A few minutes later there was 2 more then another 5 minutes another doe and 2 fawn. They keeps looking to the wood line as if something was coming but it never happened. They slowly worked there way away from me browsing on the picked corn once they got to the 1 row of corn the farmer left I grabbed the rattle bag and gave a mild rattling. All of the does did an about face and started walking down the far side of the corn but toward me. Once they got to the end which is about 50yds from me they just started feeding again. Some here along there walk they pick up a few straglers no there was 11. Total there was 8 does and 3 fawns and they fed for about 20 minutes or so and slowly walked away from me. Which is fine it's a buck for me. Last week I saw a couple little bucks. I've hunted Sat. Sun. Tues. and today and haven't seen a buck yet last week I saw 3 little guys walking around. I'm.gonna give it another shot tomorrow hopefully I can get out of work at noon.
