Last day of the MN season!!

10 posts in this topic

I am archery hunting but for anyone with an archery tag or the H season gun tag, either way, tomorrow is the last day of the season.

I have to admit I will still be out chasing a tom, but its been worth it. I've hunted 11 of the 13 days so far during the archery season in 4 different spots.

I've got one last chance before its tag soup. Good luck to all the last day hunters and congrats to all those who have connected this season in MN and elsewhere. The stories have been fantastic!!

Finally! The frustration is over, I can get some sleep and spend a little more quality time with my business.

I won't say the frustration is over since I did not harvest a bird, but it will be nice to finally sleep in. I don't have to be to work till 5am tomorrow. That means I'm gonna get an extra hour of sleep.

Well the last afternoon was uneventful for me. I did have a group of turkeys on the wrong side of the property line that wouldn't cross over. The end of turkey season is bittersweet for me. I wish I could still be chasing the longbeards but chasing eyes is very nice as well. laugh

I will say my last day was exciting. I had the same group of 2 toms and 4 hens hang out in the usual spot all morning. They wanted none of what I was selling so I left empty-handed. Harvesting a bird is icing on the cake, but the excitement is in watching these birds and listen to them gobble their heads off for hours at a time.

One of my last times out, I had 6 longbeards all within 50-60 yards of me, all gobbling at the same time...pretty cool! None of them got to ride in my truck. frown

Those spurs and beards are going to be just that much longer next year!

Andy, we worked at that development I took yo too twice this week and both times we had Tom's within 100 yards of us struttion for hens. The builder called to let me know there were 5 long beards in the backyard of the model on Tuesday. I was so busy this week I couldn't even make time to get out once more to try and get one witht he bow... I guess there is always next year.

Good Luck!

Ken

    • 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.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
