Well another 90 something degrees out side and the weather man said it feels like its OVER 100 degrees. So I just thought I would check out YOUR weather and I am so jealous of you guys and your 68 degree's not fair. I really need to ask my Dad what he was thinking when he moved us down here.

It is 65 degrees right now here in Carlton. It's a nice day!! I don't mind it being a cool summer. I've put my air on only 2 times so far. grin I do feel for you DeeDee. I don't do well in the heat AT ALL.

Currently here in Osakis (12:12pm) it is 76 degrees and feels like 76 degrees. Haven't had to use the air yet this year. Open the windows at night when it drops to the upper 50s to low 60s, close the windows and coverings for the day and it stays cool all day. It got a little warmer a couple days ago when the humidity climbed up a bit but ceiling fans do wonders.

You got air? For the like 3 days it gets that hot? J/K Gets too hot and we just head down to the rec room downs stairs where it rarely sees 70 degrees.

I don't have air, but then I haven't needed it yet this year. Use a fan to suck in all the cool air at night and enjoy all day.

we've got central air but have only used it once so far this year. The nights have been beautiful and the days not too bad. I can handle the heat, its the humidity that I can't take, and thats been under control so far this year - knock on wood shocked

It sounds so funny that ya'll dont have air. Heck 90% of FL population would be wiped out with out it but we didnt have air when I lived up there. But here I guess we turn our heat on for about a 2-3 weeks total.

I guess you could say were even in a way but I would rather have snow and dress for it, where as here you can only take off so much before you get arrested. (then your still hot and sun burned.)

Well if you are stating that you are dressed/undressed like this to beat the heat you may need to have it tattooed, well depending on how hot it is. grin

Dang it anyways. 4 out of 5 isn't all that bad. From the looks of it, it does look good and if they are your kids in there, then fine. It is the ones who put there girlfriends or boy friends names on them and then it doesn't work out. Now what do you do. From the looks of it my guess it is on your shoulder, left side upper.

good guess! I agree no boy/girl friends name unless you can see in the future and know it forever then ok. And no tramp stamps either. Dont really care for them either.

ok I just looked at it again. Not that good of a guess. My sunburned/tan line gave it away

    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
