  1. Just curious if anyone has experience with this cooler? I originally wanted to purchase the RTIC, but thats on BO until august. costco has the 70qt for $200.
  2. Helix 10 G2N MEGA
  3. what do you have the sonar set to? 83khz or 200 or 200/83?
  4. there might be a point on them look at about the 1:09 mark in the video, looks like something there; but i would be hesitant to buy one until some more info comes out about them
  5. i saw that too and forgot to check them out at FF, but their page claims they weigh 19lbs without the battery
  6. i was wondering the same thing, the sherriff called my dad as he had his car parked on a forest road, about 30 min later they had a plane flying around looking for the guy... Leech, I have noticed the samething, never seen any wolves or yotes on my cameras, but this year we've had a couple different packs do yotes howling around us--in the bunyan that is
  7. it is not clear at all really, but if you look here on page 107, "abandoned property" is found under the State forests section vs the camping section I originally pointed out you are correct, WPA's and WMA's are different, I believe wpa's/wma's you have to carry in/out every day (except for bear hunters... more dnr over thinking...) I agree getanet, older gents carrying in/out a stand everyday is not feasible, I agree with not allowing any new construction of stands, but hanging and leaving stands throughout the season is what I meant. take them all away ClownColor
  8. you can use the stands on public land, but you cant just take someone's property. the state gives you a 14 day period, after that, its considered abandoned I agree Bass Whacker, I hope some day they outlaw the construction of permanent stands. there are some doink nuts that use them and claim that area is theres. I also love the restrictions on ATV use, I don't believe the lack of access is the problem for hunter recruitment, there are more trails today then ever, but thats all for a different topic...
  9. voltage regulator, same thing happened to my 2003 40hp. My mechanic said it was a common problem in that year range Merc's, said during his training, his instructor would tell the students that those merc's can start the water on fire!
  10. I just replaced the bearings on my atv trailer and what a PITA- took me a good 3 hrs of pounding out the races and pounding in the new ones- I wish there was a northern tool nearby so next time I could save myself time and just purchasing the hub kit- granted the previous owner must not have done them in a long time as the races were "froze" in the hub with rust
  11. I upgraded from my old 2hp Tecumseh lazer to the 2.5 solo lazer and so far I love it starts in the cold and it's fast. I really wanted a nils with the tanaka head but they're dam near impossible to find
  12. we had one tag, but chose to pass on them; tomorrow should be good for you guys!
  13. we hunt in thorpe township, 0 for 3 this year, we saw 6 does on saturday morning, then nothing sunday or monday. We are not gong back this weekend unfortunately. decent amount of shooting saturday, not much sunday, a few more monday it seemed like.
  14. noticed the other day some noise echoing from the trailer when going through nisswa, when I got home, jacked up the trialer, one side was good and the otherside i could hear noticiable noise/grinding noise. So i replaced that side's bearings, cleaned everything. I inspected the races and I could not feel any pitting or nicks so I put the new bearings in there. Put everything together and spun the hub and it still has a noise associated with it, not nearly as bad prior to the new bearings but still some noise. I did a 7 mile test last night and it was just as cool as the other hub. Is it going to be ok? about how many miles should I know if its not warm by then, they're good to go? thanks!
