In Carlos Avery wear as much Blaze Orange as you possibly can. Walk as deep in the woods as you dare.

I would even say when you are walking out - Make noise

There is not enough orange to get me to step foot in those woods.

Seriously.

There hasn't been nearly the pressure on Carlos this year as in years past and if you do your homework there are alot of out of the way places where a person can park, walk in and have the place to himself. Do your home work and have a backup plan in case someone shows up before you and is in your spot. At 29,000 acres there aought to be somewhere you can hunt without the masses.

Dnr site, county plat books and even atlas's will have the roads and boundries. If you do some driving around there are alot of dead end roads that but up to it. Most parking is on the side of the road but there are areas with designated parking lots as well.

If you go into Carlos, make sure you pay attention. I was bow hunting an area next to a cattail swamp a few years ago. Guy shot a bird out of a tree close to me - didn't see me - I wont ever go back. Be safe.

Not many bow hunters wear orange, and not many law abiding hunters shoot a bird out of a tree.

Like I said; just be careful. I'd hate to read about a fellow FM'er being bagged rather than being the bagger.

I was out this morning and saw a fair amount of pressure along the main roads, 97, broadway in Flake and 22 in Wyoming but when traveling along some of the lesser known spots only came across 2 vehicals in eight different areas. So depending on where you plan to hunt there are open spots with little to no pressure. Do the homework and you'll be able to get into areas without a ton of hunters.

Yes. Several times.

I guess everyones experience is different, but, in terms of "calming down"; you asked.

I was out there yesterday afternoon for the last of the gun hunt. Although it was a little busy, I was able to find a spot where I was left alone. Unfortunately the deer left me alone as well. smile

Not much shooting and a lot of long faces driving out. Oh well there is always Zone 1

But I cant complain, I got my Crow Wing County doe in the freezer and I was antler hunting anyway. It was better than watching the queens hand the game over.

I hunted it last year and will do whatever I can to never go back there. People firing over your head, sounds like a war zone at first light. Way to many people and way to many that have no clue. Try to find some land another place if you can.

I dont think I would have the guts to go out there on opening morning. (or any morning before light for that matter) I have heard a few horror stories myself. By the second weekend, most of the ya-hoos are gone. I will go over for the afternoon hunts if I am back in town late in the week. Not too bad then...

    • 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.
