They are Coming

18 posts in this topic

The forecast for Thursday and Friday, in Manitoba and northern North Dakota is for snow and blowing snow, with high northwest winds. The low temps will be in the teens.

This should be the push we are waiting for !

Good luck and be safe on the water.

Good luck to all, both deer and duck.

Just got back from western MN. Hunted the snow and wind for three days and we saw less than 200 Mallards; total.

We are still in shock. Hardly any divers in the area but a few geese.

8" of snow near the border. The fields are snow covered.

Are they still in Manitoba?

Hunted from the SD border to central mn the last 4 days. Was solid Ducks, Geese & Swans heading south for the last 4 days. Talked to a contact in NE SD, and he said pretty much everything is gone, and they'll be ice fishing this week.

Was I the only one that had any luck this weekend? The best duck hunting weekend of the year for me so far. Got 7 mallards and 2 spoonies with my dad on saturday and I shot 4 greenies on Sunday morning before the vikes beat the pack. Lots of giant flocks of mallards (20-30 birds) that came right in without hesitation. The key was waiting them out and staying in the blind past 9:30 am; saw very little before then and then it was very good for the next hour or so. I love strong Northwest winds and frigid mornings when everything that gets a little wet sticks to any metallic surface inside the boat grin.

I think there only thirty bux a shot at most reatilers their ball bearing so they spin in most winds all the way to forty MPH after that I tuck them in close or they will fly right off the post it seams. they work really well for me ne how

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
