8 posts in this topic

I was just messing around with some christmas lights, and was wondering if anyone has uses the rope christmas lights and placed them in there portable shelter. Thought it could be kind of cool since you can connect them together and get them in different colors. White,blue,green,yellow,red, multi colored.

Anyone Tried them?

I tried them once but it was a pain dealing with the mess. I ended up getting UFO type LED lights from Northern Tool and they ork great. 48leds and no wiring,you can't beat it.

How much $$ for the ufo lights and how many hours can you get out of a set of batteries? How many batteries does it take?

I just looked it up on their site. northern tool and it does look sweet for the portable. It has a hook or magnets. One tip, you must twist to open, someone pried it open and broke it. On sale for $12.99. It has six great reviews as well. I think I should order one!!

You won't be disappointed. They do go quick this time of year. I use 1 in my X2 when it is slow and 2 if we are playing cards. They say batteries aren't included but they were in the ones I bought last year. It takes 3AA batteries and those lasted me all season.

I also have the UFO lights(2) from Northern. They are awesome. Mine also came with batteries and they lasted all season as well.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
