  1. Polaris 250 Value

    Had a 1999 335 Polaris Sportsman that I sold because of safety issues...didn't want my sons or their kids riding unsafe ATV.
  2. Boondocking Nemidji State forest

    Did some boondocking camping this three day weekend at Nemidji State forest mostly ATVed the roads as most of the trail were closed. As always lots of dust. Lots of water and a few washouts both on roads and trails. Great weather and beef stew in wife's new Dutch oven over open fire made the camping even better. Tink

  4. Purrs like a kitten

    Just got my 2007 Honda Rancher 400 AT serviced and boy am I happy with the results! Had carburetor cleaned and kit put in, idle adjusted, new spark plug, new choke cable, oil and filter change. ATV is now running better than when it was brand new. This is a special thanks to the knowledgeable service people who help keep our toys running right.

  6. Bird ID help

    Yup Orchard oriole have had one at our feeder yesterday and today. We went to the bird book to id.
  7. Slip bobber for walleye

    Want to try slip bobber for walleye in 12 to 15 feet of water. What is the best bobber, hook or small jig, sinker weight, pound line, etc. for this set up?
  8. Snow plow shoe

    Anyone weld something to the bottom of ATV snow plow shoe to extend the wear life? Good or bad idea?
  9. Fenwick Rods

    My Fenwick Elite tech Walleye jigging 6' 3" is just SUPER! I highly recommend. Just got it last year after asking the same question as you.
  10. Senior license question

    Minnesota fishing and hunting license options for over 65 senior. What is the best option cost wise with both of us fishing and small game hunting? We don’t usually catch nor need a lot of fish with just a meal here and there for two people. We mainly hunt ruffed grouse with a little jumping shooting of ducks. Thanks for all the help with this confusing issue.

  12. Nemidji considerate and careful

    Please do not dump your holding tank in Nemidji State forest camping areas. We camped on the first knoll on left past the Pickerel lake camp ground this past October with three motorhomes and four ATVs. Two grandkids like playing in the sand around fire pit but we couldn’t let them because there were two areas in camp site with large toilet paper residue where someone dumped their holding tank. It would be nice if there was a dumping station at the camp ground. We also had two motorhomes hit several times by shotgun pellets from grouse and woodcock (woodcock flight was in) hunters who knew we were there but didn’t care. Thank you.
  13. What is the best

    Have old set of Frogg Toggs rain suit that I like a lot. Keeps me dry while riding motorcycle, breaths so I don’t sweat, but is frayed and has a duct tape patch on inside lower right leg where I got to close to exhaust. It is very lightweight and works well as an emergency jacket keeping cold wind out. Thinking about a new set of Frogg Toggs Road Toads rain gear with reflective piping and in a color to match my bike. What do you think is the best and driest motorcycle rain gear?
  14. Bearded Seal and Caribou Arcti Ocean hunting
