Took my 3 year old out tonight :)

8 posts in this topic

Good evening everyone. I took my 3 (4 on Tuesday) out tonight for a few hours. We setup on a field that I have seen lots of deer on in the past. We used a ground blind so he could move some and my wife would let him go smile Anyway we were sitting for about 1 hours and around 6 pm or so I let him use my fawn bleat and he hit it twice (we have been praticing) and within minutes here comes a doe running right at us. She stopped at 25 yards and was locked on us. He loved it he got to watch this deer for about 15 minutes walk in front and feed. He had brought his play bow and he kept saying I can shot it Dad. Boy what a great night... smile

Man that's awesome, way to go dad. I'm going to do the same thing with my son this year. I let him sit out with me last year once during the rifle season when I shot a big doe, man did he love that.

It was nice to see his eye's light up when that Doe was coming into him making the fawn bleat noise. I think as I get older and have shot and seen lots of deer in my life a smaller deer doesn't excite me as much as it use to (don't be me wrong I still gets my heart pumping), but to see his eye's and his face was priceless. I told his mother, that I hope she doesn't plan on seeing us much when he gets a bit older smile

well done, how did the doe react to having the groud blind there? Or has it been there a while?

Aiden and me just put the ground blind out 2 hours prior to seeing her. We were in a good situtation where the blind was against a thick woods with grass that came right up to the window. She really didn't care about the blind, but did know that something was different.

Saaweeet! I have to leave town for the rest of the week, but when I get back, I'm taking my 3 year old out for the first time. I can't wait...

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
