weather change

7 posts in this topic

So who's heading out Sat? With the mpending weather change coming Sunday I would think that they will be on their feet in the early evening...? Some scrape activity started and two new sets in prime time spots = total excitement. Two weeks to get it done.

I really wish I could be out saturday sitting on stand but I've got a great invite to go shoot some pheasants. I'm off work till tuesday so I'll be getting some stand time in this coming week. Good luck to those heading out and dress warm.

i think it was time about 2 weeks ago. Ive had a cam on a scrape for 2 weeks now with 150 pics the first week, and i changed it to video this last week. I'll be checking it tomorrow to see what comes of it. Walked past it last night and saw there was 30 videos since last sunday so hopefully theres some fights on there. Had pics of 3 different sets of bucks fighting last week!

I think cooler weather should get them moving. I'm going to stay off my stands this weekend sinces it is supposed to be very windy. I was out last night. It was very calm but kind of warm where I was at. My car said 48 degrees when I left and I would prefer it to be below 40.

Watch the weather man be wrong an it will be incredibly calm.

Oh well I'm going to do some work this weekend so the boss will let me live a little early to bowhunt over the next two weeks.

Putting a trail cam set to video in front of a active scape sure is exciting. I've been doing that the last two years now and you get some interesting and amazing footage!

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
