Our Increased Penalties Bill (fail to yield) suffered a serious, but not fatal, set back in the MN House Finance Committee. The bill was soundly defeated on a voice vote. Mack has the latest info on the A.B.A.T.E. of

MN HSOforum, check it out when you get a chance.

The bill still has life, but not much. Stay tuned for details, we will not give up, we will fight until the bitter end of this session. Until we get this changed this is how things work. If someone runs a stop sign and kills a biker they get a fine for running a stop sign which runs around $120. If someone gets busted for being two crappies over the limit they are subject to a fine of $120.

It is my opinion that we need to do the following to fix this:

We need more members state wide and we really need more members from Minneapolis and St. Paul.

We must have some kind of increased presence at the Capitol, it may not be cheap. The committee hearing today was at 8:00 a.m. How many people can go to St. Paul on a Tuesday at 8:00 a.m?

We just have to find 500 dedicated freedom fighters that believe the life of a Biker is more valuable then the life of two crappies and they have to show up at St. Paul for Biker Day 2010.

We need to write more letters, send more emails, attend more fundraisers, help with more campaigns and contribute more to the PAC.

We can stand and be counted or we can roll around doing the crappie flop, the choice is yours.

I am very suprised that no one has responded.

But, I don't think that the guy taking two extra crappies would be charged with vehicular manslaughter though.

Kind of like if you go out and punch out a child molester it is now a hate crime but if you punch out a vetran it's just a run of the mill assult. Lots of things that are out there that are not OK. However, we elected these goons to the office that they are holding. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
