One was shot a couple of years ago near Clarkfield. I got to see the pictures and it was a cool looking bird. Never saw one myself but I did see an albino partridge years ago. Consider yourself lucky prechlerker you saw what most never will. grin

I know of a property in Iowa where the gene has been passed on several times. Always exciting. I have seen several who have blochy white patches, but never a true all white and pink albino. Neet find if you can get one.

I have a spot just a few miles away where there have been a few spotted for the past 5 years. I could shoot this bird but I enjoy seeing it from time to time. They sure are pretty.

Might be a dumb question, but if one was to see an albino pheasant while hunting, how do you know if it's a rooster and can shoot it? Tail feather size?

Wish I could say I have had this problem. But yes, I would vote for tail feather.

But I am sure I can find the guys who will tell me that their dog is sooooooooo good it only points/flushes roosters! hehehehehe that cracks me up every time!

I would say either long tail feathers, the red patch on the head, or best of all, it cackles when it gets up.

runhotshot, I didn't know that they could breed albino pheasants? Must be some new pheasant raising technology to appeal to the rich and famous.

My dad shot one years ago in Iowa, it wasn't completly albino but it has large white patches, it cackled when it got up. He also shot a bird that apparently never matured into a male or female, it had some red in it, but mostly was brown, long tail feathers though, and it cackled so once again, bang. He took it into the DNR and had them look at it, it was mounted and is somewhere in a box in the basement.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
