Summer dreaming...

4 posts in this topic

I was at a buddy's cabin and he showed me his (new to him) 2015 Polaris Indy Voyager with 550 fan. Wow it is really nice, looks like a great ice fishing sled with that long cargo area and long track. Makes a guy drool and wanting the white stuff to come ;) 

I think he got with 1k miles and paid about $5k delivered to his cabin near Sturgeon Lake. Not sure if it was a rental from out west or not, but it sure looked clean and had those really wide skis on it.

This? It should make a great Ice fishing or trail riding sled.

Have him look over the hood real close where faded Out of State tag or Rental numbers may have been on the front or sides of the hood to tell if it was a rental. They clean them up pretty well though.

I talked to and watched a guy in a sled rental shop in West Yellow Stone one spring a few years ago cleaning up rentals to resale. They replace ripped seats, cracked windshields, bad skis, etc, took the tags and numbers off and best of all. Put a different speedo in. I pressed him on that part and he said at that time there was no law about it! :(

I've seen semi loads of these for Sale at the Hay days and grass drags in the fall around MN.

Yep like that one, but the skis looked even wider. Not sure if they were wider than those, but sure looked like it. He said the 600 liquid cooled was about $1k-$1.5k more, so he went for the 550 since it will be used mostly for ice fishing. Nice sled :)

May be suggest that he runs a compression test on it now before winter if he didn't do that when he bought it. Just a thought on a used sled.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
