Excuse the poor quality,heart still pounds when a good one comes in.Hard to hold the Zr85 steady.

Been doing my normal preseason scouting/sitting.

This one is from a ground blind.All were within easy bow range.

So stoked to go. Ive invited a couple buds to go just so I can extend my season since I didnt get drawn. Have yet to find the wife a Phase with a Blaze. Heading west and south of town this weekend.A client swears he has one coming into his yard early evening. We dont have a tag for the area so it may be a "next year scouting trip"

Ill post pics IF it shows.

The only one that even had a clue what was up was the fat blackie...All are boars and within 15 yds,didn't spook either..

Not sure but once the baiting/infiltration starts they know whats up and get shy.

That looks sweet. I agree that they get a little shy after baiting begins. It has been a while since I have seen one on stand. When I first started some nights I would see multiple bears and now nothing. The bears are still there just smarter than me. Good luck on your scouting.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
