There is a lot of great prize's for only a $30.00 entry fee. Is the truck a prize or a 1 year lease ? It would depend on how far I would have to travel but it sounds good.

I think you are saying this is a ICE fishing event right?

The prize list is great for $30.00 I do not now where this lake is but would drive there if it was not more than 3 hours a way from Duluth,MN. Well let us now what you plan to do and we will be there.

I have set up a drawing for a $1000 gift certificate at Russells Sport Shop for those pre-registering on line. Russells is a local sport shop in Star Prarie, WI that sell guns, bows, bikes, canoes, fishing gear etc...

I'm in... My aunt and uncle told me about it last year. They said that they had a blast and got sunburnt. I already have the year long license so might as well use it. That is a nice prize list. How many people came last year?

Okay, here's the scoop: I had to finalize the list tonight so the flyers could go out for the St. Paul Ice Show on Friday. #11 will be a clam ice shack. The grand prize will be a 2008 Dodge Dakota extended cab 4x4 pickup with a msrp. of $27,535 everything else will remain as it was in my original post. If your at the show sign up for one of 25 free entries to be given away after the show we'll be at booth 1007 and running the trout pond.

I have been to this contest the past 4 years, and have won a prize 3 out of the 4 times. This is the best looking prize list yet! I actually won the truck last year, so I might be a little biased, but this event is a blast! I won a $200 dear stand with a .22 pearch! Not many contests where that can happen! Definately recommend this to anyone who can make it!

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
