sounds to me like it could acually be a big change after everything is set in stone.

good or bad?? what does everyone think?

i read it as: spear whatever size u wanna throw at even if the angling has a slot. i dont feel that that is right, but trying to stay in the slot and getting one out of the slot will cover your but?

    • Trumps pulls even in Minnesota.  But hey your vote doesn't matter here.  Not poking fun at Dave as I thought what he said was logic in that the democratic candidate would win hands down.
    • Uh oh, just saw a junco at the ranch under the feeders a couple hours ago. This is serious. First we lose the hummingbirds early, now the juncos are back. It'll be an ugly winter. Get yer wool coats everybody! Wool coats fer sale! 
    • I hear ya , I just eat a Montana elk tag for $880 . I could go back with the rifle but it would be more money and time off from home   
    • That is amazing!! I especially like the dovetails!! And the hand made flasher holder!! That has me seriously thinking... just what i need, another project before winter gets here.  Seriously, that's awesome!
    • Who said anything about victim? We have terrible representation, I am taking responsibility by trying to change it. Sure beats picking some party your parents voted for and blindly sticking with them your whole life. That isn't a poke at you Del, just the way things are.
    • I like them in Spring when the water is still cold. An original in white works well for me, usually fished on 15lb mono. This year I mostly used a Strike King blade minnow as a trailer.
    • Just ask her..... It's because you want more of the Obama policies and more.  It's because she is a woman and you want to show you are not a bigot. It's because Trump will destroy the country and probably the planet.   /sarcasm for the reading impaired...
    • You don't deserve better because they got nominated by voters who chose them instead of one of the other possibilities.  What did you do to get one of the others chosen?   If you just watched TV and went to work and were not involved in the process, then you got what you deserved, as did the rest of the country.   You are not a victim.  No mysterious cabal did this to you.   We are all responsible and that includes you.    Is that so hard to accept?
