Fall Classic

22 posts in this topic

I went up north mid week last week with my friend Stan and we were able to come away with a few keeper images. The first one is my favorite.

I'd have to go with the first one as well. The leaves in the BG of the first helps make it my favorite.

Beautiful work Mike. I can see why the first is a favorite.

Great shots both, Mike. That first one's rack has tons of character, and as chicks said the fall color adds a nice seasonal context. Very cool!

Nice. I love the rack on that brute. It's extremely rare to happen across a buck in daylight around here.

That first one should be in the monthly challenge, and then enter it into a contest and win something. Gorgeous shots.

I think it would be an appropriate favor for this moderator if buzz would e-mail me some GPS coords for that bruiser. gringringrin

Nice shots, after looking at the buck I see where all the antler points went from the spikes and forkys I see around here.

You'll have to sweeten the pot brotha Steve. grin Ya know its Deer season and the hunters checking in here are probably getting antler envey about now. I know I've never seen anything over a 12 pointer myself while sitting on a stand, let alone a 22, 23 or 24 pointer like this one. (I assume you count all the lil tines) Heck, how many do you guys count? Here is a better angle for counting I think.

I think they count anything longer than 1", but I'm not a deer hunter. I like that last shot too.

The first buck looked like it might be starting to get a swollen neck but the 2nd buck looks like it has a was to go before it gets into a rut smirk

I looked at thepictures and thought man what a nice buck then Jimalm brought up the fact that there are plural bucks. two hosses. I wouldn't have been pressing the shutter on those things, I would have been pulling the release on my bow

Know of quite a few, how many you want? Couple of em not too far from my house, If I had to guess there are probably 30-40 registered deer farms in MN. But thats just a guess. There is a guy up here that this summer had a huge Elk in his pen, havn't driven out that way to see if he still had him or not. I used to ride my bike that way just to get a look at the beast!!! There is a red deer farm in Center City, them are cool lookin things for sure. Then of coarse we have the Buffalo in Lindstrom too..

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
