  1. Yup, that's my plan. I will pattern both against what I have been using, at different ranges and probably with a couple different choke tubes.
  2. You mean the extra pellets, or the extra powder? I put a Vortex red dot sight on my turkey gun, like it a lot.
  3. I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
  4. Free pair of wood hollow core bifold closet doors, with track and all hardware, for 60 inch wide closet opening. Each door (folded out) is 29 1/2 inches wide by 79 inches tall. Normal wear, in good working order. We replaced them with sliding doors. Picture shows one of the two doors. Located in Inver Grove Heights.
  5. I have all three growing in my pepper garden, it is gonna be interesting....
  6. I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
  7. I have a 75 horse mariner with the same issue. Are you saying the diaphragm is not internal to the carbs, but outside the carbs?
  8. You will get plenty of opinions, and there is a lot of good info on this site for pulled pork. I shoot for 195-200 degrees internal before taking it off the smoker in order to pull it.
  9. Wonderful! Way to go Dad!
  10. I have a 2001 Polaris Xplorer 400 4x4 and I want to replace the fuel filter when I get up to where it is this spring- will any off the rack filter work or is there a specific Polaris part I need to pick up? Thanks for any help.
  11. Well... I got a Truglo gobble-dot fiber optic sight set and it won't work for me, I can't get enough elevation to look straight down the sights. So, I am going to take the sight set back, put my B-square mount back on, and get a red-dot sight. I did fine with this gun when I had it scoped for deer, so I assume this setup will also work. Anybody use a red dot sight for turkeys that they recommend? I would think my budget would be 125 bucks or less. Thanks for any help.
  12. You are right... I think I will plan to plant the first week of June when I get back up there. I will have the plants growing in containers, and transplant them.
  13. I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
  14. I would like to grow some pumpkins this year in the field on my hunting land in Wadena county. The ground is mostly sand. Can I dig a few holes, fill them with black dirt/compost and plant the plants in these, will they grow ok? Any advice will be appreciated.
  15. I did the same thing, only I used retaining wall blocks to build the wall. My bed is oval, about 25 feet long, the dirt area is about 4 feet wide, so we can reach anything without having to climb over the fence, we fenced the edge to keep the rabbits out. The dirt in mine is only about nine inches deep, so your 2x12 idea I think would be fine. I personally would not use treated lumber for fear of chemicals leaching into the soil. Since I was building this on a lawn area, after I built the wall I laid a fairly thick layer of newspaper inside it over the grass, then filled it with black dirt and compost. The newspaper will kill the grass, then decompose. Every spring I take a shovel and turn the top layer of dirt and fill it to the top with compost. We grow tomatos, peppers, green beans, beets, lettuce, spinach, radishes, squash (we train the runners to lay on the wall blocks, so they are outside the fence), oregano which I have to cut back every spring, it is a perennial and will take over the garden if you let it spread. We have tried to grow carrots but they did not do well most years, so we grow beets instead. I have been very happy with the produce we get every year. Good luck.
