I finally got a camera yesterday. I have been wanting one for 3 years now, and finally got one at an affordable price. I was in Scheels at River Hills in Mankato and they had refurbished ones marked down from $199.99 to $99.99, plus they honored my $20 off coupon Cabelas sends out. A camera for $79.99- can't beat that!!

Good luck with the new camera.

I had no luck with these what so ever. The base broke on my the same day I got it. Received a replacement and the next day the camera does not work.

I thought it was a steal to.. but I guess it wasnt

The ice tripods are nice for camera control BUT keep a close eye on your rubber stopper when not in use. They're easy to lose - mine went down the hole today while setting up my camera...

I am gonna noodle with a way to drill a hole into that rubber stop and attaching a leader or fishing line to it and to the tripod itself so that doesn't happen.

any thoughts on getting the refurbished ones? They say that you cannot return them to the store, does aqua view offer a warrenty on these or is it a buy at your own risk type thing? Thinking of getting one they still have a couple left in kato...

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
