Mn 2016

6 posts in this topic

Mn was a blast this year, well every year it's a blast turkey hunting. Had some close calls that just didn't work out. I was able to scout new land we just got permission on for hunting and sure nice to be out turkey hunting scouting for deer. I'm pumped for deer season already. We will be putting in a couple larger plots this spring so the work wil be coming soon. Once i'm done with turkey seasons.

I was lucky to get a bird after a bunch of close calls and mess ups . Sorry not the best picture was trying to just use the timer on my phone. Forgot my camera and I rarely have my phone with me hunting.


Saturday morning





For some reason cannot get the pictures to upload. Will try later.

looking good!  My kids taught me to take a video when I'm alone and then take a screen shot off of the video.  Works well for fish too.

I'm so mad Primos after 20 years of making that call stop making it last year. They made a few in a special package but no more. :(

My mn bird was taken with the Lil heartbreaker didn't have a mask on no mouth call in I just sat down hit the box call and a few mintues later my bird showed up came right in with a few little yelps. Took me a little bit to get my call in my hand since they caught me off guard looking for my calling when I was not ready.

Even for custom box calls the Lil Heartbreaker in my mind is one of the top box calls out there. I have an e-mail to Primos seeing if they would ever start making it again. Do not know why they would stop making that call it won a few years in a row best box call.

This spring from NE and MN I added 4 out of the 7 birds I called in for me and others. Only put a notch when the box call harvested the bird :)

Good luck to all starting today.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • 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.
