  1. I know this has been posted several times in the past, but does anyone have or know of anyone with a Clam Trap Link they are willing to part with? I have two of the older style Clam ice houses and my kids are now getting old enough to want to go with and it would be nice to connect them for more room. Let me know. Thanks!
  2. Scam. Have a couple of stands for varying wind directions. Put a little fox urine on your boots for the walk in and you're good to go!
  3. You really can't go wrong with a TC product. I've been using my .50 caliber Encore (coupled with a Nikon Monarch*) for 6 years now and wouldn't consider another muzzleloader. I'm bias because it's what I know. In the last three years I've taken three deer in three shots. Two through the heart. *I use it during the shotgun season in southern MN.
  4. Is anyone familiar with this brand? I picked up a wool hunting shirt of theirs for $12 at an estate sale (brand new, still had the tag on it). I was surprised to see how expensive this stuff is! I love wool clothing personally, but am just curious if anyone has any experience with this brand.
  5. Quick question- Can someone confirm my interpretation of zone 602 for this fall. I think you can still hunt from Nov.9 - Dec.1, but this is now a 5 deer limit instead of unlimited like the past couple of years, is this correct? Are the antler restrictions re-imposed or are those still lifted? Thanks!

    Mavericks 88

    Mossberg Maverick is the only hunting shotgun I use. I've hunted a lot of upland, waterfowl, turkey and even have a cantilever slug barrel and scope. The beauty of the Maverick is that it is light weight, reliable and easy to maintain in the field. There is nothing worse than constantly worrying about scratching your gun in the woods or rectifying semi-auto ejection issues in the duck blind. There's my bias opinion!
  7. I'm curious to know if anyone out there uses a .22lr as their conceal and carry gun? I'm well versed in pistols and know there are larger calibers, but am curious as to opinions on the .22lr specifically. Especially if you are profficient and use high grade ammo while carrying it.
  8. I was told that the Lakeville Fleet Farm is getting rid of their fitness equipment area and putting in more firearms stuff and reloading equipment. Has anyone else heard this?
  9. This is my 22nd year of turkey hunting/ applying to hunt and I've never seen a year like this. I hunt private land in SE MN and it's been an intersting week. Some observations this week: The birds in my area are all still flocked up, big flocks of 15-20 birds and I'm seeing more birds than usual. Because of this they seem to have no interest in calls/ decoys. Since there is no foliage in the woods, I'm noticing the birds are more apt to stay in the woods, as I think they feel a little safer, yet they can see and hear a long distance, unlike most years. Also, several of the birds I have been watching this week are roosting unusually long. I watched 5 hens together in the roost until 9:10 while two toms strutted and gobbled in the woods below. I'm curious to know if anyone else has had similar observations this year.
  10. I know you need the conceal/ carry or permit to purchase to buy a handgun but do you need it to buy handgun ammo?
  11. Is anyone familiar with this brand of small utility trailer? They are made in Burnsville and I'm considering buying one. Any feedback is appreciated.
  12. I have a 2013 Outback 2.5 4 cylinder and am looking at a small utility trailer. The trailer weighs 500lbs empty and the max it can carry is 1000 lbs of cargo for a total max weight of 1500. Subaru says the max towing capacity is 2700 lbs. I'm just wondering how this car will handle the small trailer? I want it to haul camping supplies and my bikes. Thoughts?
  13. Yeah, as long as you're following the rules of the zone your hunting you're fine. We have a similar situation near Rochester with the Chronic Waste disease zone. I hunt two farms, one is on the east side of Hwy 63 which is the regular 3A zone and the season runs from Nov. 3-11 and you are only allowed to hunt by the regular 3A rules. The other farm is literally across the Hwy to the west and is in zone 601, the Chronic Waste Zone. This season runs the entire month of Nov and has no antler restrictions or bag limits other than one buck. I can hunt both zones/ seasons on my regular firearms license, I just need to abide by the rules of the zone I'm hunting in. This answer came straight from St Paul.
  14. I own Columbia's wool jacket and pants. I'm a bit of an old schooler when it comes to hunting and equipment. It's quiet, extremely warm and will keep you warm even when wet, should you get into a real survival situation. Depending on where you are hunting this may or may not be a factor. They're not cheap, but won't set you back too much either. I think you can get the jacket for around $150 and the pants for $100. As was stated earlier buying the stuff off season will save some $. They do collect burdocks though
  15. I'm looking to get my deer knife sharpened professionally this year. I live in Burnsville and am interested in knowing if anyone has any suggestions of places to check. Google turned up The Strop Shop in Burnsville. Does anyone have any experience with them? Cost? Any other suggestions welcomed.
