    I really like that first one. I'd like to see a pic like that from laying on the ground right next to the skyscraper and shot straight up, then flip the pic 180 degrees.
  2. Sun and Tree

    After an appointment this a.m. the sun looked pretty cool so I took a couple pics.
  3. Hunting ground blind doubles as ice shelter?

    I have an Eskimo Quick fish 3 that has about the same hub system as my Double Bull Matrix ground blind. Under 200 bucks for the eskimo. last fall I broke a rod in the double bull and they sent me 4 rods for just shipping costs. last week I broke one in the eskimo and I called them up and they are sending me some also. excellent customer service both companies! I just used one of the extras from double bull to use in the eskimo till those rods get here. I'm learning if you need to force it to pop open,STOP! and adjust a bit. The nice thing about the Eskimo is they have a flap all the way around the bottom that you can bank some snow on and it's fine with a low wind. if it gets really windy I screw down one of the 5 ice screws that come with it about 5 feet from the house and tie it down. works great! you can also use the screws to anchor the corners down also if you want. so if you are gonna use the ground blind just get some ice screws and it should work just fine but you might get a good breeze on your feet if it's windy if you don't bank any snow.
  4. how many shoot year round?

    I use to shoot year round till a few years go. Shoulder started to get sore and lottsa smallies to go after in the summer. Now I just hunt in the fall and shooting league again this year. mid 90's to 2000 I was shooting at least 250 shots a week.

    That's the nice thing about it. It's not a cometition but a way to grow in our photo taking addiction.

    Pretty sunset in Sauk Rapids this evening. Which do you like better and why? I really like the first with a bit more sky but the second one is nice cuz of the trees.
