    Was lucky enough to have this guy give me a 34 yard broadside shot. I still cant believe it happened. It's been a long time since I have punched a buck tag this early.

    Tough Meat.

    Sous vide. It allows cooking a long time to break down collagen without overcooking and drying out the very lean meat. Circulators are quite affordable these days, and you probably already have a vacuum sealer. You can experiment with the time. I would start at about 4-5 hours for steak. It sure works for cheap sirloin beef. After cooking, cool it down in a ice bath for a little while, pat it dry, and sear it for a very short time on a screaming hot cast iron pan or on a roaring grill. Like 30 seconds to maybe a minute. Get a crust without cooking the inside.

    It will actually take longer with greater distraction looking for the lift remote and holding the lift button in for the 7 seconds to get the ducer out of the hole than pulling by hand. Good way to loose that trophy fish

    Fish House Build #2

    Things keep moving along. I got a couple doors made for the cabinets and got the hole cut and hole covers installed. I also finished filling nail holes with putty so a little sanding and it will be ready for some stain.

    Camper Questions, Help??

    IMO, the roof is the most important component. It has been said that there are only 2 types of camper roofs, those that leak and those that are going to leak. Inspect any used camper roof diligently and make sure there are no soft spots and that yearly maintenance has been performed. As far as slides go, yes they can sometimes be problematic but I would guess that there are very few new models produced today without one. Kind of like electric windows on cars. I used to avoid them because it was one more thing to go wrong but now you would have a hard time finding one without them. Also, the RV refrigerator can be a problem in older campers. Make sure it works before purchasing a used camper. If it doesn't, that severely depreciates the value of an older unit in my mind. I would just recommend walking through as many floor plans as possible and try to envision your family in there. One of the biggest mistakes people make is buying the wrong layout and having to trade much sooner than expected.

    What papadarv made for a cam makes more sense since you can pan with it and pull up the cam from 30-40 feet. Lifting a ducer a foot and a half for $200 bucks makes no sense!

    Tough Meat.

    My partner shot this nice bull in AZ last month. We got 200 lbs of meat off him. The steaks - even the backstraps - are so tough as to be almost inedible. Any proven tips to help us eat all this fine meat?

    We leave in 7 hours for a back country hunt in Idaho. Mother nature has already thrown us a curve ball with the weather...we've decided to change our route and head down through South Dakota and across Wyoming. Staying in hotel tomorrow night in Donnelly, Idaho then up the mountain Sunday morning with almost 2 full days to scout before the season opens Tues. After having huge success the last 2 years in Montana..I'm going in with expectations of having a wonderful adventure and any game taken will be an added bonus!

    Had The Old Roof Done!

    Well felt it was time to get the 21 year old camper roof done. It didn't leak but it was time before it did. Pretty nasty when your parked under a big Oak tree! Looks great now and it's covered for 5 years from leaks.

    Tough Meat.

    Lot of work for that much meat but I got me one of these that seems to work pretty well. I just use it on each meal as I take it out for dinner. The fine thin blades don't turn it in to mush! Animals from hotter-drier states seem to be tougher because they don't have as much lush greens to eat. IMO. Jaccard 45 Knife Meat Tenderizer by Jaccard

    Expandable Broadhead

    I agree with Wanderer. The blades go back to the forward position when pulled out of something. Look at the holes in the chest cavity to see the real story. BUT, if you believe you've had problems with them so many times, why not go to a fixed blade and have one less thing to worry about?

    Any chance the blades flipped back over pulling the arrow out of whatever it was stuck in? So the blades open by hand before using? It doesn’t look like there should be an issue just going off the pic since they’re partially deployed.

    Gopher Nation

    Little bit of a slow start, but game went about what I expected. I thought Fleck kept the starters in at least one series too long. Even with #16 Michigan losing, I really don’t see the gophers moving up at all in the rankings.

    Ice Castle Broken Cables and Siezed axle

    Regardless of brand, you should always pull the axles every 2-3 years and clean the rust and grease them. Galvanized cables work fine if you change them when you re grease them. It's an absolute must.

    What Machine Is This…

    Lol.... Smart one-just-like-silly-me Anyways, it turned out my hunch was correct and it is a machine for doing back rows. I guess this is a $1500 device. Does anybody use this pretty regularly as part of their back routine?

    Camping In Algonquin Park And Hiking

    Well, according to the not so subtle link at the best, fabulous, most perfect resort in the park. Looks like a three night stay with three square a day will only put you back around 3,000 per kid. If three hundred kids go the school will only have to cough up a little less than 100,000 for the three day trip. Just take it out of the petty cash fund and have fun.........................................

    Pheasant Reports?

    Wind whipped snow didn't keep the orange army from going out in the area we were in. Pretty much all the state land was surrounded by pickups early. The kid dropped the only rooster we flushed but did flush several real small birds. A couple of spots had some standing water but it was the snow and wet grass that got one wet.

    Gun dog training with pigeons

    I'm building a game bird operation here in Rush Point and plan to raise and sell chukars beginning next year to folks who want to use them for gun dog training. The pen is nearly done and another barn addition is in the works for the additional equipment I'll need to manage the operation. The DNR has given me the green light on the permit and I hope to help folks out with their training needs. Rush Point is near Cambridge and convenient to the north metro area and east central Minnesota. It's more of a retirement hobby and not a business which will allow me to stay in touch with like minded folks. Stay tuned...….web site is rushpoint dot com or gun-dog-game-birds once I open for business.

    Fish Ottertail mid day (gin clear water) summer & winter 50 to 120 FOW. Cisco balls/clouds 100 ft. + diameter suspended 20 to 35' walleye just below. Trick is finding the balls in miles of deep water. Bait balls also effective in shallow waters. Targeting Fall Walleye pulling minnows & crawlers found bait ball 17 FOW marking lots below. Switched to leech on second pass got some really nice Blue Gill on Sand, Itasca Co. Great family fish fry.

    What's on the grill

    I got them from grillgrates.com. They have different sizes for different grills. Anodized aluminum spreads heat evenly and flare ups are not an issue. Good for steaks also. I got their spatula with fingers that fit between the ridges so you can lift up on the fillets instead of pushing a spatula under them. Keeps filets from busting up and falling in the grill. I season both sides of filets, spray cooking oil on both sides and on the grill grates. No sticking. When we were in Anchorage we ate at Momma O's. Great grilled fish there, I watched how they cooked it and used their method. Crappies and walleyes are on the agenda.

    Well, I breaded and deep fried my lobster mushrooms. They were not as good as just pan frying them in a little olive oil/butter. I guess live and learn.

    Walleye Replica

    Last summer my son caught a 30.5" walleye on a local lake. It was a hot day so we put it back pretty quickly. We decided to surprise him with a Replica. Fiber Tech out of Nisswa did an amazing job! Only took 6 weeks once I made the call. I will use them again.

    Grassy Awns Dangerous to Dogs

    Keep your dog safe and prevent contact with Canadian Rye or Foxtail seeds. Many dogs have died as a result and even the vet did not know the cause. Many more have become very sick, crippled or damaged in other ways because of the grassy awn seeds. If you hunt and your dog gets sick, be sure to mention the possibility of a grassy awn issue along with the ensuing infection. Many vets will treat for other infections first. There are several species of Foxtail and also Canadian Rye, grassy weeds you need to be aware of if you are a dog owner. You may not know what Canadian Rye or foxtail is or be unaware of the danger they pose to dogs. Please be aware that these seeds do kill dogs and make many more dogs sick enough to require surgery. Canadian Rye image below: They grow rapidly during the winter/spring rains, and then dry out in the summer months. As these grasses mature, a seed forms at the top of the stalk. The foxtail seed resembles a fox's tail, hence the name given to the grass. Canadian Rye looks similar to foxtail with a more wheat head look. When dog owners talk about "foxtails or Canadian Rye," they are actually speaking of the seed portion of the grass.Once canadian rye/foxtail grasses dry out, the seed detaches easily and sticks readily to clothing and fur. Canadian rye/foxtail seeds can enter a dog's body in a variety of ways and once they enter, they act like an animated fishhook: the seed continues to move forward through the dog’s body, and because of tiny barbs, cannot move backwards. It's most common for a canadian rye/foxtail seed to enter a dog's body through the skin, nose, ears, paws, genitals, and eyes. Cases have even been reported of canadian rye/foxtails being lodged in male dogs' urethra. One vet I spoke tomentioned how a canadian rye/foxtail seed found in a dog's lung was believed to have entered initially through thedog's paw! Canadian rye/foxtail seeds are tenacious, and can be deadly. The "seedlings" are physically built to burrow. While some animals do not have difficulty with the plant (horses can eat them with no side effects), and people seem to be able to remove them easily, dogs appear to have the most severe reactions to them. Foxtail image below: The outsides of the "seedlings" contain a bacterium with enzymes used to break down vegetation. This bacterium also allows the seedling to burrow into a dog along the tunnels of pus created by the enzyme. In fact, Dr. Amezcua informed us: pus and these seeds go hand in hand. A foxtail or Canadian rye seed can literally go anywhere in the dog. For example, they have been found inside the brain, anal glands, eyes, ears, jowls, feet, spinal cord, lungs, and vagina. Canadian rye/foxtail seeds are relatively small, so detecting them once they enter a dog's body can be difficult. Vets usually rely on telltale symptoms such as head-shaking, paw licking, swellings on the body, or sudden and continuous sneezing. Canadian rye/foxtail seeds in the ears, nose, and eyes are very serious and can ultimately be life-threatening if they are not treated promptly. If a canadian rye/foxtail seed has been inhaled and lodged in the nasal cavity, the dog will sneeze repeatedly and violently, sometimes even banging their nose on the floor with each sneeze in a futile attempt to dislodgethe seed. It is often possible to sedate the animal, locate the seed with an otoscope, and remove it using special forceps, if rushed to the vet after the initial symptoms appear. If a canadian rye/foxtail seed is lodged in the paw or under the coat, a lump will usually form that is painful to touch.Depending on how deep the canadian rye/foxtail seed has traveled, they can usually be removed surgically. When a canadian rye/foxtail seed get into a dog's eye, they will usually paw at the eye and the eye will water. Even if you can see a canadian rye/foxtail lying under the eyelid, don't try to remove it yourself! There's a good chance that you may not get it all. Keep your dog from pawing at their eye and get to a vet immediately, preferably a veterinary opthomologist. If your dog gets a canadian rye/foxtail in their ear, they will usually shake their head violently. If you suspect a canadian rye/foxtail, get your dog to a vet immediately. The best way to handle canadian rye/foxtail problems is to prevent them or treat them early. To prevent canadian rye/foxtail injuries: • If possible, avoid canadian rye/foxtail infested areas – especially during the dry season. • Thoroughly brush and inspect your dog's coat if it has been romping through tall, mature grass. Run your hands over their coat and look for canadian rye/foxtails. Dogs with long hair are particularlysusceptible to canadian rye/foxtail seeds. • Look into your dog's ears. If your dog has floppy ears, lift each ear and inspect. • Immediately examine your dogs paws (in-between toes and paw pads), neck (under the collar),tail/anus, and underarm areas after walks in areas with canadian rye/foxtails. • Remove any canadian rye/foxtails that are sitting on the fur. • Remove any canadian rye/foxtails from your property and tell your friends & family who own dogs so they can do the same.
