      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

we took a trip to western Nebraska this weekend. made stops at Bass Pro in Council Bluffs, and Cabelas in kearney Neb. I didn't buy a thing at either store! blush I didn't think it was possible to do that!

i was looking more for hunting stuff( haven't hardly been fishing with all the flooding around here!) but ??

Look at the cash you saved Del. I don't know if I could ever do that.

The bird population looks to be taking a hit too. I would guess that all wildlfe will be hit hard with the massive flooding.

Its sad to see all the damage and people that have to deal with these floods.

i kind of surprised myself! grin,but neither one had what i was looking for.

i'm afraid our pheasant pop is going to be very low( atleast in our area) . we may get a third hatch , but usuaully that one is small anyway.

some of the areas here are really bad. between those that lost thier homes, and bussinesses; then all the thilth and chemicals left behind. not good! del

probably the hens did, but many of the nest in this area got hit hard.( not all the state had the heavy rains we did though!)some of our fields still have water sitting in them . the streams are down ,but the ditches and draining slowly.( note! i live 40 mi. N.E. of waterloo) del

I'm in Decorah. We're headed down with rods to the Upper Iowa here in town for the first time since the flooding. Some guys have been out working the new undercut banks that weren't there before.

As far as the economic impact on parts of Iowa goes - the only words to describe it are "devastating" and "tragic". The whole country is going to feel the impact of diminished ethanol and food production, just like we all felt the surge in construction material costs following Katrina.

Decorah itself got off light; just inconvenienced, really, but Cedar Rapids, Des Moine and thousands of acres of agricultural land are feeling huge, uninsured losses.

So anyway - delmuts, you have far more discipline than I do!

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
