Do you think this would work? I think about stuff to much.

7 posts in this topic

I am in the process of putting together my 5x8 canvas craft house and was thinking about the spear hole and how big it should be when an idea came to me. Do you think it would work to stick 12"x12" mirror squares to the hole cover and angle it up to see the portion of the hole ( directly under you). Unless you are looking straight down the hole there is a blind spot under you. I am planning a 24x48 inch hole and thought it might be a cool idea, anyone ever try this? Other than it being fragile does it sound like it would work? I think about mounting some 1/4" foam under the mirrors to help them take any rough stuff.

You might want to think of polished stainless steel for mirrors instead of glass. They should hold up better.

In general I think it would hurt you more than help.

It does let you see more of the blind spot but it also allows the fish to see your movements from that blind spot.

But on the other hand it might work great for ya?

I guess I would say if it is easy and cheep to install... try it out and see if you like it or not.

I've heard of a few old timers that mounted bus mirrors on the wall of perm shacks. They allow you to adjust the tilt. (the ones that craby old bus drivers used to watch you in to make sure you weren't having any fun)

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
