      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Oh, that smell! Why don't they make that into an after shave for special occasions.

Couldn'T agree more them Yamaha's have the sweetest sound, specially trimmed out buzzing across the lake.

I pulled mine into the garage from the back yard yesterday. I have one more ice fishing trip this upcoming weekend, but it won't be long now until the boat is on the water.

I pulled mine out of storage last week and have it in the garage at home now. It was a great weekend working on the boat in the garage. Just getting ready for the season gets the juices flowing! Weather permitting, I'll be on the Rainy River next week.

I pullled my boat out today. It started up fine with 1 quick shot of starting fuild (I primed the carb and it did not fire on full choke at 1st). but after that she just purrred I took some deep creep and killed her that way. waited for a few mins and fired right up again. but it was running fine no problems so far. I just can't wait to get her in the water and also try out my new x67c in my boat (i brought the ice pack and I want to try it in my boat.

Looking mine over the other day well lets say lots of water in it that became ice block. Fuel tank and batteries encased in ice. Got the big budy going under the cover thawing it out 2 days now. Making head way.

Note to self pull drain plug when storing out side and need bigger garage...

That's my concern to. They were fully charged and they don't appear to be bulging. Fingers crossed, the trolling motor is still under warranty so I will be good there, thankfully.

Just checked lots of power behind the starter battery. Power trim goes up and down no problem.

Man that ice melts slow but the big buddy is doing its job.

I leave mine outside to in the winter but leave the onboard charger plugged in or take the batterys out and store in the basement. Hit the key on it a couple weeks ago she popped right off.

    • I broke the trigger guard my my t/c omega on the last day of the season.  I looked online but can't seem to find anywhere selling that part.  Any idea where to get one?  I'd rather not buy entire new muzzleloader. It's the silver part in this pic.    
    • Yes we have and still, It only makes sense that if 85% of this country's population identifies as Christian. 85% of the criminals when ask with a check off box on their in-processing form, would identify with what they were raised with as well. Big shock! By the way that question is on the in-processing forms so the few atheist's and other beliefs can be accommodated during their stay as well. It doesn't mean that the little Norwegian or German Lutheran ladies down in Belle Plaine are going to gun down Big Dave with their AR's after the church Pot Luck as he walks down the street! Fear-Not Dave.   
    • Not just heat, if you have central air it will run off that also though not as well.  Usually no real need to have a humidifier run in the summer though around here.  
    • You can buy shallow mount speakers for a couple extra bucks, but making a bumpout inside isn't to bad.  We put ours in the corners in the back with a 45'd wood box.  The front are in the bathroom wall so there was room there.  Going to throw in some outside ones next summer and for those I'm planning on shaving out the sprayfoam and just packing insulation in behind them.  They will be mounted behind cabinets so shouldn't lose to much heat.  Outside if they don't fit I will be buying the plastic pre-made spacers, don't want wood out there.
    • We've went over this before but over 85% of this country's population is Christian. Guess who is causing over 85% of the crime? And actually, there have been terroristic threats against the couple of outed atheists here in Belle Plaine.......
    • I like seeing that gas line open in the bathroom.  I saw a couple manufactures at a show this summer that had them hidden in the wall and that absolutely terrifies me.  If something were to happen with it they would be sol.
    • This was probably one of the most frustrating Muzzy seasons I can remember. There are lots of deer around. Cameras and tracks in the snow confirmed that. We just saw very few in the daylight. The properties we hunt do get hit pretty hard with the rifle guys, but usually with some snow/cold they will start to hit the food sources in the afternoons as the season progresses. But not this year. They would wait until about 5:30 before arriving on the food. Oh well we still had lots of fun. I will go out a few times yet with the bow. Still have a doe tag that would love to fill.
    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!!
