    I hear that for some reason the SI or DI units (Humminbird) don't do a real good job at providing a general depth readout while you're on the move in the boat? Something different between a normal transducer and the SI/DI transducers? Kind of stupid to have to slow to a crawl to get a feel of what depth you're in. Anyone able to comment if there's truth to this.
  2. Hey Guys......... I'm going to be hunting MN bear for the first time this year and need to pick an area and an outfitter soon. I have 3 points, so I should be fine with any areas I'm considering. I can't find why area 51 would be a bad choice, plus it is alot closer drive to and from where I'm traveling from. Who can describe the differences between area 51 and some of the other areas a few hours further north. Are there more people in the woods? Is the landscape not quite the same as further north? Why would someone drive past 51 to get to an area near the top of the state? I hope to find some guys who either live in or hunt in 51 that can talk about pros or cons? How would 51 look or feel different from areas like 25 or 26? If any of you are going to give it a thumbs up, then I wouldn't mind hearing of any outfitters that you'd recommend from past experience. Thanks.
