21 posts in this topic

didn't find any!!!

I was unable to locate a single box of steel shot at the whole place. That is where I scored a good deal on a case of 3 inch Federals last year.

I'd say the best deal was the free climb to the top of the National Guard rock wall...actually did it a few times. That and the free dog food (great to bring along in the blind bag) probably were the only deals I found. Pretty slim...

Have to agree on the shells I also was looking for a case of steel and I couldn't find any this yr! Was fun chatting with some old and new faces at waterfowl hill. Ran into our own Team Otter at the artic armor booth and enjoyed talking and laughing with him again. All in all the Game fair was a good as usual!

There are alot of places, but they are all pretty spendy.

If you need decoys this is the year to buy them. Prices will be going WAY up next year...

every two years or so decoys go up when the new GHG came out a couple years ago decoys prices sky rocketed. what happened to the good ol bigfoot spread. now people use them for fillers and have them fully flocked decoys for the kill.

"Prices will be going WAY up next year"

Maybe, unless you have a reliable source?......GHG hunter series has raised from $119, 129, 139 to $149 in the last few years. FFD's went up cause of the slotted bags included. Who knows what next years prices will bring to us all. Shells are definitely going up bit by bit each year, depends on which ones. So if you're finding some deals anywhere, I say take it.

ffd full bodies are decently priced and a nice looking decoy. get some of those and fill in with bigfoots.

I got a dozen FFD lessers and like em but have not tried em out in the field yet, this September I will though. Yeah, I saw somewhere that others said the prices of dekes will go up 10% after this fall...good time to get some dekes when you can.

rogers has great prices right now; also if you guys have daily delivery from ups or fed ex to your place of work, if you call rogers you can usually negotiate a cheaper shipping rate to your business.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
