No, just wanted to know your guys age and if you are still going thru it, around it or turning back? Are we learning anything with age?

OK, Thanks for clearng that up. Rough day here in the salt mines.

Well, I'm 41 and if I know what's in it, how deep it is, or don't mind fixing the machine when I break it, I'll go through. But I usually will go around so long as there's a legal trail to do so. Otherwise, I'm like you and turn around and go back.

I'm 50 only one way for me, through it! thats what it is all about for me. exploring new country, I can always clean later. Although when the wifey is with and she see's the big ole mud hole with a smirk on my face the byotchin starts lol. She has since learned to keep her mouth shut during the mud hole crossing!

Guess I am not making myself clear today. When I put 20-30 I meant anyone in there twenties or thirties. Sure didn't want to leave anyone left out.

Helmets, HELMETS we don't need no stinking helmets!

Seriously I broke my jaw in three places in a little motorcycle accident, my jaw was wired together for 6 weeks so your point is well taken. I always wear a helmet on the motorcycle even in 105 degrees temp and when on snowmobile. Well be wearing a helmet while ATVing from now on. Thank you.

Looks like a place I know in Pine county just east of Kerrick and Duquette in a unnamed state forest? Judging by how wet it is must have been early spring?

I love to see pictures like this and have been in every one of these places myself but there are alot of antiwheeler people lurking on this site.

That being said sparkyaber: Yours is about 2.5miles west of Hwy65 about 4 miles south of McGrath ! Did you go over to your right (west) into the trees? Its about 4.5' deep in there! Ive been there!

Anbody else go any pics to post come over to Atv Nation dot com and post them, if they are in MN I bet I can guess where they are from!

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
