as soon as the hat I like the best takes the lead grin

oh I don't know, let's say we make Friday the deadline. If 2 of them are anywhere close, we can do a runoff, or even maybe try to do a dozen of each. We'll see how the totals come out.

Minnesota doesn't allow for runoff elections. I will challenge every non-camouflage hat ballot, even if it means that we don't have an elected hat in time for the 2009 catfishing session.

If you're asking me what I would do, I would step back. I just think the need for the healing process is so important, the possibility of any change of this magnitude in the voting system we have is so remote, that would be my judgment.

looks like the realtree is coming out victorious which is good for me. It can end now mines in the lead haha.

I was trying to look at the polls earlier today and i wasn't letting me see them without voting. Yet I've already voted any clue why.

I'm am only going to order as many hats as I get paid for. The hard part is that we need to buy them by the dozen. I'm confident we can do 2 dozen, but might be tough doing 3. So, it might be a first pay, first served. It will all depend how many people send me money. If I get 36, then I can get 3 dozen.

What I won't be doing this year is buying extra hats or taking IOU's. No payment, no hat.

I imagine, I will have full details as soon as a hat is chosen.

I don't think we allow those kind of posts here anymore smile

Let's vote on this one more day, and I'll get the order info up and ready this weekend and post all the details on Sunday or Monday.

Looks to me like the Camo will prevail.

Just as an FYI, even though there are some minimal fees on the backend, PayPal works very good for me on these types of deals and I would like to utilize that service as much as possible. If you don't have an account or never used it, maybe check it out over the weekend. I know some of you are uncomfortable with that, and quite understandable so I can still take a personal check if need be.

Basically I will have a deadline to order, and if I don't receive a paypal payment or check in hand by that deadline, your order will not be included.

I will explain it all when I have the details and totals. Stay tuned....

so now that we have forty plus so far. Are we going to do a count on all of us on who wants a hat. Or is it going to stay the same first come first serve. I know that you said that there was only a limited amount at the 12.50 range is that number changing or staying the same.

Well, this is going to be the hard part. The price will be directly related to how many hats are ordered. The more hats that are ordered, the thinner the “HSO discount” is spread.

Really the only fair way I can see to do it is to base the price on 24 hats and then do a first come first serve. I don’t want to have to refund money or ask for additional funds because enough of them weren’t paid for.

I also don’t want to buy extra inventory and hope that someone will buy them off of me.

I can order more hats after that, but they will need to be at full price since the discount has already been applied (and probably in qtys of 12).

Camo it is guys, the tribe has spoken.

I will post details on ordering sometime this weekend. Just as an FYI. There will be a limited amount at a discount price, and ALL payments will need to be through PayPal.

Cool, I can hide from the flatties better with the camo hat, they'll never see me coming.

Would like to get a big "Thanks" in to Rick for supplying a dozen hats, it is much appreciated.

Thanks to Darren, also, for organizing the hats (and the contest in general). Have to say that anything that can make your life easier (like paypal) is well worth it. This contest is about fun, and so simplicity goes a long way.

Here are the details for the hat.

Pricing as follows:

Hat only with pickup at Moore's Bait and Tackle--$13.00

Hat with shipping to address--$18.00

Hat with custom name on back and pickup at Moores--$18.00

Hat with custom name and shipping to address--$23.00

There will be a limited qty of hats available at this pricing (24). I will begin taking orders Mon 2/23 evening at approx 4pm. There will be a new post made with instructions on how to buy.

The first 24 orders I receive will secure this pricing. After that, I will cancel all further orders and the price will increase to 24/29/29/34 for future orders.

You will need a paypal account or credit card info to order.

Not quite tomorrow. They haven't been ordered yet. I believe Darren will be waiting until the first 24 hats are sold, after which time he will know all of the information he needs (who wants customization, and what names to put on those hats). Then it'll take a while for the 'factory' to process that order, customize the hats with the logo and any name(s), and ship to Darren. Then he'll take the "pickup" hats to Bob's and ship the rest out.

Could easily be looking at a couple weeks, upward from there if the first 24 hats take a while to sell.

I would say probably closer to 3 weeks from the order deadline and or I have 24 orders.

Also the base price of the hat includes the PayPal fees and cost to ship them to me.

      Thanks for  good read ! 

      Was this your first elk trip ? 

      Yep for most in the group it was our first real trip out West, next trip will probably be mule deer, tag soup on elk hurts a lot more with how pricey those tags are.

    • I am planning to be there as well.

    • I also use the zman original chatterbait. I am a chatterbait nut. Probably one of my favorite baits to throw. The strike king pure poisons are great too but swim a little lower in the water column than the zmans. My biggest fish the past few years have usually come on a chatterbait in the spring and fall. Early spring and late fall I will use mostly a chartreuse/white chatterbait with a white super fluke as a trailer. Very subtle action on the fluke, which I love in the colder water periods. Once the water starts warming up a bite I will switch to a lake fork tackle live magic shad. I'll throw mostly the zmans candy craw with a green pumpkin lake fork magic shad. I fish these over the top and through weeds in the spring and fall and rip them if they get caught in the weeds. They also work great around docks and skipping them under docks. A few weeks ago I wish fishing a dirty lake with a great dock bite and caught about 18-19lbs off of chatterbaits by fishing them around docks and skipping them under docks.

    • I think we all need to keep in mind that the defense is basically the exact same group of players and coaches that were together all of last year.  They should be performing better than the offense.  Whereas, the offense has been completely reshaped during the off season and through injury.  It will take time to gel.  Also, remember the impact Diggs made last year once he was ready to play.  Zimmer just made the same comment about Treadwell not being ready yet.  Not saying he will make a huge impact, but he could provide an improvement over Johnson.  The O line needs to get it figured out.  Berger is solid, Fusco and Clemmings are improving.  Boone/Sirles and Smith need to get better quickly.

      The defense carried the team through the last two weeks, which are also the most difficult weeks with the exception of GB in GB.  They are in great shape with what appears to be a favorable schedule based on early results in the NFL.  If the offense improves and the defense remains solid, they should have a good chance to win in most games.  Not saying they will win all games, just a chance to win.  And hope it doesn't come down to a last second field goal!

      They have to tell themselves something because admitting that their party and these candidates are trash is too hard for some. It's almost religious the amount of devotion some people have to these parties.

      Irrational Escalation of Commitment is certainly present - from both sides - in a major way this election cycle. I think it's odd that so many people on both Team Blue and Team Red are unwilling to admit that their party's candidate is a turd with enormous flaws that ought to disqualify them from serious consideration for office.

    • MH casting rod, braided line (w/fluoro leader if needed in clear water), grass pig or skinny dipper for a trailer. Great year-round bait...too many people think of it only as a spring/fall deal, but it will whack em all year.
    • I've been using the Strike King Pure Poison version of the chatterbait mostly because like the line attachment better.  They use a oval split ring instead of a snap that is on the Zman version.  I usually use a swim bait or a grub, for a swim bait I started using a lake fork paddle tail but it got to be too expensive, so I switched to using a havoc grass pig.  I usually use braided line with mine to prevent bite offs from Pike.

    • A lot of the people that I know who were Bernie supporters seem to be leaning 3rd party at the moment.  They were supporting Bernie because they were fed up with the crapola we are normally fed and they saw it as a vote against the system.  Now that he's out of the race and we are stuck with these 2 candidates they are still on the "buck the system" trend and are leaning toward a 3rd party candidate of some sort.  We'll see how they actually vote when the time comes as the lure to vote against Trump will probably be strong with them so they may still vote Hillary despite their own objections. Personally the debate didn't change my opinion and I don't anticipate anything that will change my mind before the election.  I'm still planning to vote for Doogie Howser, M.D.
