      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Best hunt ever!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

This weekend I had the best hunt of my life. I planned on meeting up with a buddy that has access to a lot of land. He was out of town for the first day, but I managed to get quite a few divers on my own. The 2nd day we saw thousands of geese, and limited out in a corn field. The last 2 days we field hunted mallards. That was the best hunting I have ever had. At one point we had about 200 mallard land just outside of our deeks. We adjusted our deeks, and the mallards were right on top of us. The area is loaded with thousands of geese, not as many mallards yet. We just got lucky to be able to hunt the land that we scouted. I am still having dreams of mallards landing on top of me.

its generally known that town x holds honkers, but naming areas your hunting is really getting frowned upon on public forums. ive been guilty of it before, but hearing 1 hunter show up in your spot and saying "found out about this spot from some guy on the internet" will make you rethink how you post. congrats on a great hunt though.

Not a huge deal, its just that it gets harder and harder to get access to land when more and more people decide to flock to the areas.

Congrats on the good hunt, and I'd love to see some pics of the hunt. Its hard to bee a good goose/mallard combo field hunt.

Yeah I agree, "near Fergus" is not a great discription. Some people just think the birds belong to them, and no one else should get a chance to shoot em.

On the flip side.........They probably arn't "near Fergus" anymore

    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
