  1. I have little yellow flies in my apple trees. Are they responsible for the holes in the leaves? Any help on identifying this little fly would be awesome. Thanks
  2. Sorry for my delayed response. I work on the road during the week. Just got around to tinkering today
  3. I have an 07 Chevy Malibu 2.2 4 cylinder. Today with the cruise set, the check engine light came on and power was reduced to a 40mph limp mode. I pulled off the road, where at idle it shook like there was a bad misfire, and I shut her off. I checked a few things, disconnected negative terminal on battery, hooked back up, and restarted the car. Check engine light disappeared, and car ran fine. Headed back down the road, cautiously. 10 miles later with cruise engaged, it all happened again. Cruise disengaged, check engine light came on, and it only rev up if car was under 40 mph no matter what I did with gas pedal. Limped for a few miles to a wayside rest, and at idle speed, it chugged again, so I put in neutral, shut it off, and coated into a parking spot. Text a friend down the road, to get him on the way with his car trailer. He showed up, car started up, ran fine, but drove it on the trailer. Any thoughts? Throttle body issue maybe? I know I can scan it this week with the engine light on, but thought I'd pick your guys brains and have issue resolved.

  5. Nokian tires

    Ok. I live in St. Cloud. Waite parks discount tire doesn't carry them, nor able to order I guess
  6. Does anybody know of a place that sells nokian tires, besides online. Looking into the rotiiva at plus. On the same note, anyone have any good/bad stories about them? They are the only company that brands every single tire they make with the severe service emblem, the mountain and snowflake.

    Make sure ya give your popcorn bowl a good scrubbing before your next batch of popcorn
  8. Keep in mind it is almost one deer per hunter statewide. As opposed to the past few years where some zones were 5/hunter. Less available tags equals lower harvest numbers. I can only tag one deer this year, in 240, and I have yet to see or hear of wolves in a 30 mile radius of where we hunt. It's more harsh winters that do it, rather than wolves. But yes, wolves do take their toll. I blame wolves for the lack of moose. I mean c'mon dnr, do you honestly not know why there are so many dry cow moose out there? Really? If I were a betting man, I'd say she lost her calf to the wolves.
  9. Did he mess it up

    You'll just have to change your strategy. I highly doubt he left, but I'd be willing to bet he changed where he comes in and out or through. Find that spot. Also, try not to sound so emotional about the situation. Them are the ups and downs of the sport. Take advantage of the time you have to hunt with your dad, after all, it's just a deer. Good luck
  10. Buck Chasing Does??

    Saw lots of deer last night. One 8 pointer had a yearling doe running for her life in the river bottom last night at 5pm. Notta this morning, notta tonight. Dude, where's the rubs and scrapes this time of year?!!
  11. Telling you it would get 6mpg makes me wonder if he's pushing to sell a superduty. When I was truck shopping last summer, I was between a f150 EB, and a ram 1500. But, I see them all over, so I opted for something different, a Titan, which I love, and yet see everywhere. Fuel mileage was not a concern for me. It's a truck. And not my everyday driver. That's the cars job. But I decided not f150 EB, solely on the grounds I did not want a full size truck with a v6. Regardless of twin turbos. Had they put those turbos into a 5.4, well, I'd prolly be driving a ford
  12. rope for hauling deer

    Is the winch just to avoid a little sweating?!!
  13. Best all around tire

    Thanks for all of the good feedback. Threw a new player into the mix, hankook dynapro ATM rf10. Anybody know pros and cons here? I do like the michelins, but I kinda want an aggressive sidewall as well, for being off the beaten path.
  14. So, as old man winter gets closer to visiting, I find myself realizing I need new tires. I drive a crew cab 1/2 ton 4x4 truck. Currently have Bridgestone dueler revo 2's on it. Which I liked quite a bit. But been lookin into cooper discoverer at3's. Now here's the nitty gritty. I want the best tire I can put on it. All seasons. 50+ mile warranty. Definitely gotta be good in snow, and worth a darn on ice. Absolutely no Goodyear products. That's a long story I don't want to get into. What do you guys have the best luck with?
