Will this be a problem?

7 posts in this topic

Tomorrow morning I'm going to put some doe estrus on wicks and hang them up around my stand. I don't have a grunt call or anything. Will this be a problem?

Shouldn't be a problem at all. It will be windy tomorrow though so they will dry out fast. You may want to use gel as that doesn't dry out as quickly.

pickup a grunt call they are pretty cheap. I would hate to say stop at the evil empire but a lot of walmarts are open 24hrs and have them. I picked up a primos for $15 and forgot it on my trip last week. stopped at a military surplus and picked a cheap one up for $9.

I see no need for a grunt call unless you want to call blind. The bucks will still come check out your scent if they catch a wif of it. This morning I had 3 small bucks walk right up to my scents. I didn't need to call to get them to come in.

If the rut is going on at all, those bucks will want to check out any other buck in the area, with a doe or not.

Putting out the wicks with doe estrus, buck grunting and doe calling will help.

    • 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.
