Recommended Posts

Finally!! On Wednesday I can go and pick up our HD TV laugh our oldtv finally died, AWWW Yes whistle and we have Charter Comm, with a box so the other tv wouldent work (no RCAs). How many of you guys have HD? We wont get True HD but it will be better than what we had. 2nd question is switching to Direct TV and getting Nascar HotPass worth it. Even standard tv might be cheaper with more options, Nfl Network grin Hopefully I can werstle the tv away from the wife and her 4 CSIs Lost and Idol.

Definatly HD, I find myself not even interested in non-hd programming after having HD for some time now and if you get an HDTV all of the local arial channels are HD. I have DirectTV and they offered hotpass for free for a race, I watched a little but it wasn't that interesting to me. I like the race comentary and there isnt any on hotpass. Hotpass was basically like watching 3-5 cameras of the same car all the time and that can get boring on most races. Try to spend as much as possible on the TV you wont regret it.

I have Direct TV Hot Pass and absolutely love it. But...I will say that it's a much better buy for me as I am a huge Dale Jr. fan, and most weeks he is a Hot Pass driver. The great part is that you can listen to all of the team communications so you know exactly what is going on. Also, you can still watch during commercials.

You can toggle and listen to the TNT broadcast, the specific Hot Pass announcer for your driver, or just listen to team communications. Plus, the TNT broadcast is shown in the upper right hand corner of the screen so you can watch that at the same time.

If you get Direct TV before the weekend, I believe they are having a free Hot Pass weekend for the 400!

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
