    Time for a smoke

    So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.

    Happy Fathers Day!

    To all us dead beat bas-ters that go hunting and fishing and sit on the computer all day! Oh and had sex a few times! Keep up the good work guys! Had to put it here because there is no General thread. Plus no wives will be looking in the Home Improvement thread for us!!!
  4. Great. Can we stop wasting money on killing Deer in 5 counties around everyone that's been found!! https://www.lsonews.com/research-shows-human-prion-proteins-resist-chronic-wasting-disease/

    Caught Some Air

    It looks like you can't read or they put the "No Trespassing" sign on the wrong side! But, that was a 10 jump!

    What's more aggravating?

    Of course the one you never laid eyes on. Had a few nice heavy pulling Walleyes and Lakers lost. I think? To me seeing them is kind of like Catch and Release kind of.
  7. Well suks to be you. Start the shooting!
  8. Never said that. Please start at the top and follow along.

    Pickling Pike

    I agree, I can't stand it to sweet and only put in about a cup of sugar. I want pickled fish not candied fish.

    1994 1750 Tyee Renovation

    Wow, nice work, new boat right there. Not sure I could handle not putting a pick ax through the hull half way through a project like that! Get a nice cover for it now.
  11. I nor the DNR said it was resolved. Just as of the last testing none was found. Your chart is from 2016-2017 and is before the last testing results came in.
  12. More out breaks? Please stay up on how things are going Del. From DNR Web site. CWD testing areas Special hunt complete; no CWD found Testing is complete in all areas of Minnesota. Surveillance will resume during the 2018 deer seasons. No chronic wasting disease was detected in 275 samples from deer that hunters harvested during a special late-season hunt Jan. 6-14 in and near southeastern Minnesota's disease management zone. Please check back regularly for important updates.

    2018 gardens

    Nice clean setup. Like the walk ways. I grew so many really hot peppers last year I still have enough sauce and powder to start WWIII. I'm only going to do a few Jalapeno's this year.
  15. Nowhere did I state that I didn’t think anything should be done about the CWD issue. That I started this post should show that I am glad they are still looking into the disease and finding out how it effects man and animal. I am also glad that they have switched to taking samples during the Deer hunting season when a very large sample group of the whole states Deer herd can be tested at one time. This should provide way better data of all deer in every zone which should be way more valuable than taking a few test samples from Deer farms and random culling around the state. Their going out and randomly taking out a bunch of Deer out in an area with DNR “sharp shooters” has not found anything and hasn’t proven to be very effective, other than to ruin a bunch of peoples hunts in that area the next season.
  16. So, your saying we should start taking out people in 5 counties around each HIV person they may have come in contact with to stop it then?
  17. What I'm saying is that before 1967 when it was discovered what did the Deer herd and Hunters do then? Seems a little soon in the discovery to panic and start taking out a bunch of Deer on an unknown fear. Yep keep up looking at it and finding out what it may or may not impact. It's good that they found it doesn't not effect Humans. That's a good start. Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) of mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk (or "wapiti"), moose, and reindeer. As of 2016, CWD had been found in members of the deer family only.[1] First recognized as a clinical "wasting" syndrome in 1967 in mule deer in a wildlife research facility in northern Colorado, USA, it was identified as a TSE in 1978 and has spread to free-ranging and captive populations in 23 US states and two Canadian provinces.[2] CWD is typified by chronic weight loss leading to death. No relationship is known between CWD and any other TSEs of animals or people. Although reports in the popular press have been made of humans being affected by CWD, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests, "[m]ore epidemiological and laboratory studies are needed to monitor the possibility of such transmissions".[3] The epidemiological study further concluded, "[a]s a precaution, hunters should avoid eating deer and elk tissues known to harbor the CWD agent (e.g., brain, spinal cord, eyes, spleen, tonsils, lymph nodes) from areas where CWD has been identified
  18. Who is to say that there has not away been some CWD in the herd, before they even knew what it was or had a test for it? At least take samples during Hunting season and stop taking out a bunch of Deer for no known reason because a few Deer farm animals had it.
  19. So did you get the boat out and what did you find out darkdan?
  20. What the heck is up with this dead thread? Any Dual Sport riders want to meet up for a ride. I have my DR650 up in Brainerd and could meet up some weekend for a ride through the Bunyan, Outing, Longville areas?

    Any Dual Sport riders out there?

    I keep my bike up at my camper in Brainerd all summer and ride around on the weekends by myself for the most part. I also have joined in on large group rides that mostly ride up on the Northshore. It's a fun way to get out in the woods during the summer. I use to have 4 wheelers which are lots of fun but had to trailer everywhere and with a Dualsport I can ride there! Second picture is our mile long rolling road block leaving Our Place out of Finland MN after breakfast!
  22. Ok well this weather is going to push things back a few weeks I'm thinking. Last year I was picking some the second weekend of May!
