    Black Hills Adventure

    Friend Jeremy (Archery Sniper) and I spent a few days in the Black Hills near Sturgis this week and had a great time. He lucked into a big flock the first morning and ended up taking his first Merriam's. It took a couple days to learn some of their habits, along with a couple of "missed" opportunities before I was able able to put my tag on one. We even had time for a little sightseeing before we had to make the long drive home. All in all, it was a great adventure in some absolutely beautiful country.

    Sell Me On A New Gas Grill

    Figured I'd loop back on this with an update. I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner. Picked it up at Ace Hardware. Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge. Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon. I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills. There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price. However, they all lacked a decent warranty. The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw. I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty. Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point. Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill. I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out. I couldn't argue with his choice of red. It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe.

    Ice House Build

    I actually think its pretty sad. Everything is getting so expensive to do. I was at fleet farm the other night looking at some new fishing gear for this weekends opener and just shake my head at some of the prices of some of the lures. I cant tell you the last time I actually bought new Rapalas. I have been using the same ones for years now. I just cant bring myself to pay what they want for them. If you want a good set of rain gear its $400 for the jacket and pants. Basically I've come to realize that anything fun = big money. Its also the reason I have a boat that 25 years old. I'd love a new one but for the one I'd like the price is a killer. That's why I'm excited to be finishing up my fish house build(or mostly). Right now I'm sitting at $2400 total for everything. By doing 100% of the work it has saved me huge money and I have something I can use year round now.

    skrimp somewhere else but get a vented heater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sleeping in it once is too many times and risky, not to mention the moisture dripping from the ceiling and down the walls, the windows you'll never see out of without a squeegee, the mold that will form next summer, the sore throats, the headaches and most of all-the funeral expense. Even if you have to get a less expensive heater with a stovepipe it's better and safer. You can run the pipe out the side walls and attractively patch it later. It only takes a couple hours to start feeling the effects of CO2. Be Safe.

    Needed to use up some pheasant and decided to go with a pheasant stir fry tonight. Also wanted to try some rice in the instapot. Used a 1:1 ratio and set it for 3 mins with a natural release and it gets just about perfect. Kind of disappointed we didnt have any left overs for work tomorrow. My kids love this recipe: Please don’t judge me for the plate lol didn’t want to wash any more dishes.

    Black Hills Adventure

    I came home from the Hills yesterday after a three and a half day hunt that started just as DonBo's finished. Weather was ok in the mornings, bit cool, but rained most afternoons with snow on our last day. Day 1. The first area we checked, which has been productive the last couple years, was not holding birds this year. We scouted a few other past productive areas and again struck out with little to no sign and no birds located. Finally went back to our old stomping grounds in a hard rain just to scout and found lots of sign that first evening. Miserable conditions, so did not stay until dark, but did have one bird gobble in the rain. Lots of elk sign in the area and I walked up to two bulls bedded, and as they left three more cows went with them. Day 2. Came back the next day and had birds gobbling on the roost. I went after the first group while my uncle planned to cut back to another area that we suspected more would be in. I had two flocks come together into one big flock with five mature gobblers and ten hens. I dogged them for over three hours and had multiple close calls but no shots. Finally got into some terrain where I could get ahead of them and was able to set up tight to the feeding flock. They had split, and now came back together, and I was pinned in a rock pile with fighting gobblers just out of range. Had to sit there watching for over a half hour unable to move and just hoped they would drift into me. Finally one of the dominant toms chased another past me, and the bigger bird circled into a sunny spot in range and I was able to take the shot at 40yd. We were not able to locate any more groups on public ground that day, and bad rain/sleet rolled in for the afternoon. Day 3. Back to the same area, uncle still has his tag, and I am helping locate and call. Birds did not cooperate off the roost, and we ended up on a long walk per the usual. Went back to the "Killing Hill" as we like to call it and immediately had a tom fired up. He came in slow, we had a bad position as we were not on the hill but on the open side like dummies... I called him in to gun range for me, but my uncle has less range with his gun and could not take the shot. Another gobbler came in from the opposite side and both proceeded to fight directly behind me. My uncle turned around his tree, both toms were fighting just out of range for his gun. Neither bird would come back in range. We went back to the truck for a break and I left my uncle for lunch since he wanted to just sit and see what happens during mid-day. Turns out he walked in on a small group not far from the truck and had to sit down in the open and try to call the bird closer. That tom came in range but the grass was covering the head too much and my uncle did not want to take the shot. Day 4. Rain and snow over night, coldest day yet, and a bit breezy. We had birds gobbling a little on roost but they were quiet after an early fly down. We made some wrong moves and the birds went one way and we went the other... A big flock of yard birds waved as we left for home.

    The bride and I celebrated our 27th anniversary with dinner out. 16oz ribeye pan seared with Cajun spices. Placed on a bed of caramelized onions and topped with melted gorgonzola. Served with parmesan garlic mashed potatoes. I'm just a basic meat and potatoes kind of guy.

    MN Bird

    Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.

    MN was tough this year. I managed to stay on birds by walking a lot of miles, but had a hard time getting in close enough for a shot as most would not cross fences or leave hens... Ultimately I had to belly crawl up on this guy when he would not leave his little patch of ground above me for over an hour gobbling and drumming within 50yd the whole time.

    Spring / ramps?

    My first find was on my river bank. When I searched for more info, I remember reading 2 things: asparagus likes to keep its feet wet; and there really isn’t any “wild” asparagus. What we find foraging is the same stuff as in the store. And like @minky stated, you start seeing stands along the road in wet field areas here and there when you know what to look for. It grows pretty tall and leaves the dried stalks looking almost like a tumble weed in the spring. Not quite as heavy or round but I can’t think of a better way to describe it. Cut it when it’s short cuz it gets woody after a foot tall or so, and like anything else, don’t take it all or you won’t have any left to come back to.

    MN Opener

    Well that pair of Jakes didn’t ruin the fun today. Had an awesome day. Had a Tom very interested for going on 2 hours starting around 9:30, but he was on the other side of a ravine he refused to cross. He kept leaving but couldnt help himself but to come back and strut around gobbling and gobbling. Eventually a second tom came his way and we got to watch them throw down. A hen with them started calling like crazy and we were going back and forth for a long time. All the commotion really got things stirred up and pretty soon there were more toms closing in from three directions. This one made the fatal mistake and came out in the open at about 8 yards and that was all she wrote for my season.

    What's on the grill

    It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests. I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours. I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour. Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.

    Rush River

    Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!

    Squirrels

    The Fox Squirrel (or Eastern Fox Squirrel) and the Gray Squirrel (also known the Eastern* Gray Squirrel) are rodents in the family Sciuridae. Their suborder, Sciurinae, includes other tree squirrels, as well as ground squirrels, chipmunks, and marmots. There are 10 subspecies of Fox Squirrels and five of Gray Squirrels. Fox Squirrels spend much of their time on the ground searching for food and prefer woodlands next to openings. They’re tolerant of prairie-type environments. Gray Squirrels prefer dense stands of trees. The two generally don’t share the same habitat, but when they do, they don’t interbreed. They have home territories of a few acres, where they spend their entire lives. You may have several squirrels living in your yard in overlapping territories.

    Spot on @Hawg, an additional $200 is a small price to pay to keep one's wife & <2 year old child safe. Good Ventless heaters run $150 - $200. The Suburban vented 19,000 BTU runs $389. Last fall I found mine for $312, free shipping just took a bit of searching. My DIY 6.5 x 12 + V front wheel house has 3" batt insulation floor, walls and ceiling. At -17 deg my 19k Sunurban runs 5 cycles per hour 4 min per cycle inside temp at 70 deg. Clear windows, no headaches, no dripping water and no frozen shut door after it sets over night without heat. Fully automatic, flip a switch, set thermostat heat on. https://www.amazon.com/Suburban-2446ABK-Nt-20SEQ-Furnace-Black/dp/B00HSO2QL2/ref=asc_df_B00HSO2QL2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312094794632&hvpos=1o20&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11306086615406042177&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9019473&hvtargid=pla-570834184548&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=60223452937&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=312094794632&hvpos=1o20&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11306086615406042177&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9019473&hvtargid=pla-570834184548

    Missouri River Walleye

    Made it out to Chamberlain tonight after work and got a nice 19” and a 20”. Caught a couple others under 15” in just a couple hours of fishing. After a terrible ice season felt really good to wet a line in open water. Lots of people out and shore lines were crowded, can’t imagine how bad the weekends are. gonna hit it hard from the boat tomorrow, so more to come.

    Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males. Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.
