  1. I bought 3 more, no trespassing signs. Placed them strategically around the traps, entry points to the traps that were another 25 yards onto my property (which I hadn't noticed in the dark before). problem solved. Thanks for the input.
  2. Thanks for the info. There is no tag or id on the trap. The land is posted but not where he is entering. The road is 45 feet wide(I know, really wide apparently the developer didn't do many roads when they made this devolopment so its wider than most roads) so that gives him 8 feet from the edge of the road which he has exceeded. I think I will give him one more opportunity to take it home with him then contact the dnr. Thanks for your input. Now back to the ice fishing forum.
  3. Thursday night my wife came home around midnight and saw someone on our land with a flashlight and placing something in a culvert on our property. I jumped in the truck and went up to the area where she saw this and looked. I saw what looked like an ammo box and backed away, not knowing what it was. Called the law, they came out determined that it was a box with a trap in it. We live in a secluded area and didn't know if it was a drug or money drop, police understood and went on their way. They moved the trap, it was clear that it was moced by someone. Drove past it yesterday, ir was set again. I tripped it and set it on its end so they would know I was there. Come by again today and it was further onto mmy land, I moved it up to the road right of way and left it there. Im not familiar with trapping regulations, but I assume I'm not in the wrong here. Any advice would be aappreciated. I have outdoor cats that roam oout there and do not want traps out there. Thanks in advance. I'm not against trapping, but if someone is going to trap my land it's going to be me.
  4. New RV'er!!

    If you plan on using your rig in the early spring or late fall I would recommend getting a 1500 watt ceramic heater. I do this and it saves plenty of propane, used mine last weekend at Hinckley and the furnace only kicked on a couple times. It was in the low 20's ourside.
  5. Electric heat instead of propane?

    I use a 1500 watt ceramic heater and a 2000 watt generator im my house. It stays nice and warm. on the really cold days i have the furnace lit and let that kick in if the electric cant keep up, but thats not often.
  6. Supplemental Wheelhouse Heater

    I have a 1500 watt creamic heater that I use, Got it for 30 bucks at one of the big home improvemrnt stores. It works great.
  7. Converting Camper Into Ice House

    I bought a 12 foot camper last year, the only thing I did to it was put plastic over the windows and cut 3 holes in the floor. Added catch covers and sleeves and I have a nice fish house and a bunk house to pull behind the motorhome when we take all the kids tailgating at Iowa state....I use a honda generator to power it so I use a ceramic heater to heat it and use the furnace to help out if it gets really cold. Although it stays plenty warm in there with just the electric heat. I can pull it out with a 4 wheeler as it is very light. the one thing I might change is the tire and wheel size, im a little far off the ice....
  8. MarCum VX-1

    I picked one up a couple weeks ago. Went from a zercom colorpiont to this thing....You will catch more fish, period. you wont be disappointed if you pick get one. the zoom is easy to use. It is well worth the money.
  9. Laid off now, Where are the fish biting?

    You can email me at mnboy26@yahoo....
  10. Laid off now, Where are the fish biting?

    I will fish during the day with you...I cant go till tuesday though....I have a converted camper...fishes 2.
  11. Catch covers

    I asked that exact question about 2 months ago and there is just not much other than that out there. I wanted something a little smaller in diameter, but couldnt find anything...
  12. ice safety chart??

    I was thinking the same thing....while scratching my head no less....they can go out first and I will follow....58 feet behind no less...lol
  13. ice safety chart??

    So according to this chart, you need 7 to 8 inches of ice to hold a 6000 pound truck and a 1000 pound ice house.....Am I reading this correctly?
  14. camper conversion nearly complete....

    If I could figure out how to do that I would.....
  15. I found a mid 80's travel trailer at the back of a dealers lot last month. 400 dollars later it was mine. It's 15 feet long sleeps 3. I put 3 catch cover holes in last weekend. I had not fired up the furnace till last weekend, it ran like new and kept it 72 degrees in a stiff wind in the driveway. It can be pulled by a 4 wheeler for early ice( which was what I was going for) toilet, stove, furnace and fridge all work....I installed rod holders in the closet...the best part is I no longer have to lose sleep about a house left on the ice, and I can lake hop pretty easily. I did it all for less than the new cost of my clam 6800...I will give a report after the first use...I am kinda excited.
