A cold, yet highly anticipated sunrise after a brutal night and the piles of snow left behind.

It's pretty cool to see all the pics with kids in them. I have three daughters myself and they love to fish.

Truth...that pic from Red Lake? almost looks like me and the father-in-laws rigs in the back ground there...lol I know we were up there for one of the chilly wind blows...with the fresh snow they had it was crazy to watch houses just disappear while looking at them when it would blow!

1st time holding a fish and at 23.5" she picked a good one

Just took out my boy for the first time this Saturday, and I am pretty sure he is hooked for life. He is holding a 10 inch sunfish and his smile was just as big as the fish. Now the wife can go shopping with our daughter and the boy and I cn be chasing fish. I LOVE IT.

Tyler, that last pic with the rat is awesome! What kind of camera did you use or was it edited on a computer? It looks like a painting.

    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
