    Looks Great! Nice smoke ring.
  6. Checked my spots and nothing yet? I can usually tell by how much ground cover is growing and it looks like a few more days with this warm weather coming. I have a feeling when they pop it's going to be fast and over in a few days once it happens.

    So what is his long life secret? George Burns deal, cigar and shot of brandy a day?
  16. When we hunted SE Minnesota we would hunt pretty much all day because we were so far from home and wanted to make the most of it. We always started the mornings in blinds on low valley field edges, then moved to trails or old roads on the hill tops in the woods during the day. I took two birds on a road around mid day different years. They would strut up and down the roads but never gobble in the middle of the day. My last bird may have been my most exciting hunt ever as I saw him fan out down the road and I crawled about 50 yards to a small rise in the road and sniped him strutting as he reached the top of the rise. He never knew what hit him. FUUUN hunt!

    Which lone wolf hang on stand do you like?

    This is why this site is going away. People give good examples in a discussion and their made fun of!

    Which lone wolf hang on stand do you like?

    Lets debris fall through like, Mag lights, releases, gloves, snickers bars etc!! Plus I don't like making a lot of feet movements so I just slid a little at a time to get in better shooting positions and that could be hard with the webbing!
  20. I think ours was $2,000 plus dock spot and power so about $2,300. Not even taxes on a cabin for the year.

    Which lone wolf hang on stand do you like?

    I don't have them and one of the reasons I don't. I like to stand a lot and I thought the large holes in the platform may grab or catch lugged sole boots as you moved to position for a shot one way or another. And I didn't need to take a dive and hang by a harness.
  22. Well she may not really care about being on a lake and actually keeping fish then? To each his own.
  23. I guess the Red Door resort built a new campground and my Cuz does the summer winter thing with his Ice Castle which is a pretty big house. They like it but I have not been by yet to see their setup. Are you sure Mamma's going to go for it? Fish House Park To enjoy your fish house during the summer season on Lake Mille Lacs, we offer a beautiful, quiet, wooded area just across from the resort. We have two distinctive parks consisting of 96 and 86 lots with a layout similar to the beauty of a state park with ample room for a deck, shed and parking a vehicle and boat. Both parks have year round heated bathrooms and showers. Electric 20 amp service is included. You also have full use of the resort. For less than renting a monthly storage unit, you can have your summer cabin. BEST LOCATION ON MILLE LACS as we are not only closest to the flats (1 mile), but have over 15 spectacular pan fish lakes within 4-10 miles directly to the north of the resort. Rates $525 per season (May 1 through October 31st) and a $50 fee for AC.
  24. What the heck is up with this dead thread? Any Dual Sport riders want to meet up for a ride. I have my DR650 up in Brainerd and could meet up some weekend for a ride through the Bunyan, Outing, Longville areas?
