We are in a lottery area so I will be cut off at one deer and then it is back to bow hunting. My family almost finished off the first deer I got with the bow so hopefully I will have a little luck on my side this weekend.

Hartner, honk when you drive by, I'm on the corner of 4 and 25 on your way to Elba at the 4 way stop if you are coming from Plainveiw, can't miss the house, you will know which one. Looking forward to a great 3B. I think its going to be pretty good. Lots of crops are getting taken out as we speak. I'm getting pumped.

I will be in town during the school hour so I will give a honk by the school. My relatives live off of 4th right next to the house that puts up all of the inflatable decorations in the front yard. Hopefully I can swing by and show ya a big one on the way out of town.

Thats funny! I really like your house and always told myself if I ever moved down there I would buy that house.

My wife and I said that all through High School, it came up for sale and we bought it. Too bad that 10 acre pasture isn't 10 acres of woodland connected to another 100 acres. I'd hunt out my back door and be in heaven.

Trigger,

I drove by your house every day I hunted down there. I think you might have even been outside the one day I drove by. I hunt about 2-3 miles away. Go towards Elgin and take the first left. I saw 2 nice bucks opening morning, and as of last Thursday they were still running. There is also a monster that has been seen there.

I might be going down that way when muzzleloading starts.

Good luck in 3B

Cool, I was outside alot last weekend. Living there I get to see all the big bucks in the back of trucks when they stop at the 4 way going to and from Elba. I had hit a buck opening morning with the bow so I was done hunting early. It wasn't a good hit and I know it wasn't lethal, went out later and looked for but found both halves to the arrow and I know that I just grazed its back, so he is still running with a sore back, but anyway, thats why I was home. Normally I would have been gone for most of the day. Saw quite a few large deer go by. Jim, you are hunting on some great ground. There are some nice bucks around. When you hunted I'm sure there was a lot of corn in the area yet, it is really getting picked at a good rate right now, thats why I think 3B will be good. I also bought a ML and am looking forward to all that season as well if I don't shoot a big buck during 3B. All that great buck land around me and I'm going driving 25 miles to hunt private land in Wabasha with my family. Going to be fun, can't wait.

Yes there was way too much standing corn. We did not even see a deer last Friday. They had just started to pick the corn friday morning. Hopefully they have more corn out by this weekend.

The only bad thing where we hunt is that the corn keeps them around. Once the corn is picked, we do not see that many. They all go into the park where they are safe.

Yeah, Carly Park is quite the deer Sanctuary, the number of deer that get hit down the road from me increases dramatically during the deer season due to deer getting pushed into the park and the excessive chasing.

I'm taking off at 10am and wanted to wish everyone good luck this weekend. Shoot straight and hopefully next week I'll see some great pictures on here from you guys. If anyone is down in Elba swing into Johnnys for the Vikes game and say hi and grab some free food, we always sit at the pool table.

    •   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.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
