  1. Has anybody used the new stick quiver from lone wolf? Is it an upgrade or not?
  2. Edge of my yard tonight
  3. My problem is with the open sights that came with the gun. The post in the front will not fall into the notch in the rear page. I have the rear page positioned as high (tall) as possible. If it was not a raised stock on the gun, I would not be having this problem. I believe I need a front sight that is lower than the one that came with the gun. Has anyone experienced this problem with CVA Apex? How did you fix it?
  4. Trail cam Pic's or Video

    Let the games begin...
  5. I'd bet money it is the MN dark house association is behind the petition. I hope the angling community sends hundreds of thousands of emails opposing this.
  6. I see the dark house people are replying like its no big deal. Hopefully the angling people viewing this post take the time to send an email opposing this. Angling is selective harvest. Spearing is just estimating the size. if you want to spear walleye I suggest you drive to Montana. Fort Peck is full of walleye. Lol.
  7. This proposal appears to be INSANE. Spearing gamefish!? FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, November 14, 2014 CONTACT: Emily Kiel at Emily.Kiel@state.sd.us GFP Commission Proposal on Statewide Spearing of Game Fish PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission is proposing to open up game fish spearing statewide. The proposal was made as a result of an outside petition received from spear fishermen. The Commission will consider adoption of the proposal at their Dec. 11-12 meeting in Fort Pierre. The Commission proposed the following rule amendments for game fish spearing for 2015: • Allow spearing and bowfishing of all game fish species (except paddlefish and sturgeon) in all inland waters. • Establish a year-round game fish spearing and bowfishing season. • Make game fish spearing and bowfishing regulations on boundary waters match those of adjoining states. “No inland waters are exempt from the current Commission proposal, meaning spearing and bowfishing for all species (except paddlefish and sturgeon) could occur in all inland waters including urban fisheries, small impoundments, trout streams and large lakes and reservoirs,” stated John Lott, GFP administrative chief for fisheries. “Harvest of game fish by spearers and bowfishers is not a biological issue. It is a social issue.” Currently, the following regulations pertain to game fish spearing on inland waters: • Game fish spearing and bowfishing season is open from June 15 to March 15, inclusive. • Waters open to the spearing and bowfishing of game fish (except sturgeon and paddlefish) during the established spearing season in 2014 included: o Lake Oahe; o Portions of Lakes Sharpe and Francis Case; o Angostura and Belle Fourche reservoirs. • Spearing and bowfishing of northern pike was open in all inland lakes in 2014, except those managed for muskies, during the June 15 – March 15 game fish spearing season. As of last week, the Commission finalized that for 2015, the spearing and bowfishing of northern pike and catfish in all inland lakes (except those managed for muskies and areas of the Missouri River system closed to game fish spearing) and the Grand River immediately below Shadehill Reservoir, is allowed year-round. The Commission also added Shadehill reservoir to the list of waters open during the June 15 – March 15 game fish spearing season. “By proposing a statewide, year-round season for spearing and bowfishing of game fish, the Commission has provided the public an opportunity to comment on how much spearing and bowfishing opportunity for game fish there should be,” concluded Lott. The GFP Commission will act on this proposal Dec. 11-12 at the Fort Pierre Holiday Inn Express in Fort Pierre. Written comments on this proposal can be sent to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, S.D. 57501, or emailed to wildinfo@state.sd.us or gfpadminrules@state.sd.us. To be included in the public record, comments must be received by 12 p.m. CST on Dec. 11 and include a full name and city of residence. A public hearing before the Commission will be held for those who want to publically comment at 2 p.m. CST at the Fort Pierre Holiday Inn Express on Dec. 11. -GFP-

  11. Buck Chasing Does??

    Small 8 walked by this AM head down majority of the time. With the drizzle or mist its pin quiet no leaves crunching. Head on a swivel day. I assume he was smelling for does. To the previous post if you have not hunted out of state. I highly recommend it. I hear your rant. I looked up from typing 8pt went by again. He will get shot by noon Saturday if he is not careful. Dumby.
  12. Buck Chasing Does??

    After some small buck activity last night, 8 doe and 1 coyote in the headlights driving to morning location. I was feeling good. Nothing while on stand today. It did not help to wake up at 130am and watch the clock until 415.
  13. Buck Chasing Does??

    6pt 1yold pushing a doe by me. 50 yds a big one may move before dark. There is a ton of hope instantly
  14. Any visual cofirmations from the tree stand of bucks chasing does?
  15. So I have noticed more often than not the split ring and post on my headlock will turn to one side or the other. This causes the bait to run off to the left or right at approximately a 45 degree angle. Almost on its left or right side. The bait should run straight down and jump left or right for a few wobbles return to center then jump left or right again. Like a thin fin would for those of you you fished with them. I'll try and attach photos. I have only used the post furthest from the nose of the bait so far. Any thoughts on how to avoid this???
