44 posts in this topic

Besides fishing and hunting, what other random hobbies do you have?

I'm really getting into gardening now and I like grilling with a ice cold brew.

I would go with parenting, though not a hobbie and I put that up front of anything, but spending time with my little Monkey on Acid is the best. Other than fishing and hunting I like to work with wood, try to build things, computers, guitar hero and a few other things.

Texas Hold Em Poker and Golf to go along with fishing, count me out for hunting, not against it, just never got into it here in the Windy City.

Well I hunt and fish first and foremost. Then I garden in the summer, and brew beer year-round. Throw in some girls and that's pretty much my life smile

(edit: have any of you started dating women in the "offseason" of fishing, then encountered problems once open water rolls around? because i sure have, lol)

I am a conservative, even though most of the people i tend to meet in my "outside of the outdoor" activities are liberals, i still think many of "their" sports and activities are "hella" fun... (maybe i'm a glutton for punishment)

When it comes to "most" of my political opinions, I am conservative, because it doesn't take half a brain to realize that most of the liberal ideas are just plain goofy.

...But there are some things I wouldn't mind changing in our "law" system.

I'm not a puritan, i just try and see through the media's bull.

I guess if you are concerned about labeling me, then lable me independently conservative.

PS>... i forgot that I absolutly LOVE budweiser, and Schlitz is making one heck of a comeback!!!

Well lately and the nights have been pretty late too, I am playing Call of Duty 4. Can't seem to get enough of it. My son just bought a PS3 too, so we play online together which is real fun except he is way better than me and it seems like I have come to a standstill in my abilities, not sure if I will ever get better. Other than that, love Texas Holdem and my puppy Copper!

Oh yea! My least favorite is everytime my daughter calls from Eau Claire where she goes to college, because I know it is a money call! Believe me it truly is too!!!

Other than fishing, hunting, and parenting activities, I enjoy running and general fitness activities, coaching baseball, and playing guitar (I am self taught and absolutely brutal - in a not so good way). I hate to admit it, but the older I get the more time my job eats up.

    • Possible but I'm not sure who owns what patent.
    • For those of you that have not seen this yet. This will be making it's way into my frog box    
    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.
