I would use a ready-rig auger case and your stock blade guard. You will be well protected smile

Gander sells canvas bags that augers fit in. I bought one for my nils but it didnt occur to me until I got home that The nills wouldnt fit because the auger is longer. I beleive they were $50 Late in season be lucky if they were in stock but give it a shot.

Heck call Canvas Craft and maybe they can sew one up for you.

i realize my auger is older but whats the point of trying to baby your auger (yes i realize they cost a lot) i mean your drilling holes in the ice its not spose to look pretty forever lol but thats just my opinion

Use factory auger guard and make sure that the power head doesn't bounce around too much. I wouldn't baby her or she might run like one if you know what I mean.

A Otter auger tube with a Ready Rig or whatvere brand motor cover would have my vote.

I was thinking of using a piece of Sonotube, that concrete forming stuff to slide it into when it's in my truck. That has to be way cheaper than a big piece of pvc. Maybe rig it up so it would sit up over one of the wheel tubs out of the way....Just thinking..

    • Good. We need someone to bring desert. 
    • Been a long week for me, the big wigs were in town this week for a couple days.  Long days.  Time to comp myself that time and take the afternoon off to go fishing.  Get my hands on a sweet bass. (Let's see if Big Dave can notice anything besides the hat)  
    • I will say this though. If his campaign had spent more time laying out policy positions on social media and less time posting memes of Clinton and Trump them maybe they would have thought through some of these things a little better. And if he isn't good at that type of interview format then just do like Clinton and don't give them.    You don't see Hillary Clinton taking these types of questions in this type of format because her team knows she would fare far worse. You dont see Trump doing it any more because he got burned himself by it prior to his new handlers taking over and Johnson needs to follow the same path because now days the media is much more concentrated on finding that gotcha moment than they are about discussing what is actually good for the country.   
    • Had a good hunt yesterday, saw tons of birds, most were decoy shy though
    • Hillary's campaign is paying for it, so it ain't all bad...
    • I love it. CNN and NBC are going all in after Johnson now that he is almost up to the debate threshold because they think he is pulling more votes from her than from Trump with both registered liberals and independents.  Even asking  why he hasn't dropped out because of a few gotcha questions that Trump and especially Clinton wouldn't even subject themselves to.   The funny thing is all the attention might just get him to the 15% mark after all 
    • No, it was another MSLSD network gotcha question that had zero impact on anyone's life. Hillary of course came up with Merkel who is responsible for the refugee crisis in Germany as well as bailing out the countries in the eurozone that can't run a self funding government due to their unsustainable social programs. Nice choice. And of course Trump is a great fan of Putin. That pretty much doesn't require further elaboration.  So, you got any world leaders you most admire?  
    • So, who's going to the pond this weekend? I plan on leaving the house around 6am, Probably fishing the East side
    • Detroit News stated that one of the reasons they endorsed Gary Johnson over Trump is that he supports the TPP. I hope this is not a sellout on Johnson's part.
