I'm using the wildviews, wouldnt buy another one, takes good pictures but too unreliable. Just bought another, its a moultrie, 5.0. Just put it on a different farm yesterday, the verdict is still out on that one. But I have two Wildviews and only one is working properly, and that is sporadic at best.

How do the batteries hold up in the winter time? ive heard regular batteries (c-cell / d-cell) dont last very long when its cold out.

My Moultrie I40 almost made it a year on 6-D cell batteries. I put them in new last October and just replaced them yesterday....unbelievable and yes I had it on all winter, I'm sold!!!! If you look hard enough you can get this unit for $165-$179 in most stores with a 1G card.

thats what surprised me. the batteries lasted even in that bruttaly cold january we had, and took pictures during the cold spell too! I wish I hadn't had the memory card break that them pics were on. I have a sweet pic of a fawn all puffed up stayin warm, with snow up to its shoulders. the camera said it was 31 below, and it worked like summertime. what bums me out about that card is I had pics of a piebald doe this spring, but i put the card in my wallet, sat down, and it cracked!!

my ''rough'' calculations put him at 148 now. all tine tips are sharp, indicating he is nearly done growing. reference the ear for tine length, and g2s are 11'' long, g3s 9, 4s 4-5. pic doesn't show spread, or beam length, so its difficult pic scoring. none the less, hes a beauty!

also, if he had an 80'' antler, theoretically hed be 175-180. sorry guys, nice deer, but not that big

Holy carp, nice deer guys! Dang it, you gave me the bug already. I was refraining from checking the hunting forums but couldn't resist. My wife's gonna be mad, the deer hunting dvds are gonna be going full swing for the next couple of months.

I don't know vister I think this guy can make the 160's, I guess its up to Archerysniper to take him out and give us an official score.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
