7 posts in this topic

Ive been out of service for 3 weaks do to a seperated shoulder.

Now that I can put deoderant on with out almost passing out its time to hit the water. From the way it sounds the bite has slowed down and bcame a little more challanging.

I still cant lift a case of pop with my right shoulder but I canst stand no more I gotta get on the water. My poor boat sitten there with a veiw of the water just gotta be killing it. I know when I go out to the back yard the fist thing I see is the boat then the river then the boat. Water here I come but it will have to wait till later in the weak. I got to replace the rearwindow of my truck first. I can feel the water flowing under the boat now. At least I'm able to walk down to the river and taste it.

I agree with any shoulder injury or surgery it's painful! I had surgery on my labrum in my right shoulder on april 25th,2008 and after the week of pain meds and the constant puking feeling I was on the water catching fish like crazy! I have hurt my shoulder a few times already by setting the hook too hard or in the wrong direction. lots of ice after you work the shoulder and you'll be fine in no time! good luck on the river!

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
