    What Is Your Favorite Ice Fishing Fishfinder?

    Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?

    What Is Your Favorite Ice Fishing Fishfinder?

    I used lowrance for many years but switched to a hummingbird helix 7 last year and it's much better than the lowrance. Both are far superior to those noisy, epilepsy inducing round dial flashy thingies. And Eskimo augers rule the ice.

    Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.

    Anterless Permits

    With the harvest so far behind and all the rain it will be a very light harvest again for the third straight year. There will be some massive deer roaming the fields this year for anyone lucky enough to catch one off guard.

    Hanging pole ideas?

    That looks like enough Bullwinkle to nearly roll a truck bed trailer. Well done.

    What's on the grill

    Good man. He was supposed to guide my son and I off Bayfield later that winter for Lakers. Tragic

    They might be better off just moving to division 2. They have absolutely no business trying to compete in D1

    Depending on how the final crop numbers come in there may some farmers willing to sell off some of their land that isn't producing money for a very good price after the harvest.

    Fir out the walls with 2*2's so you have a thicker wall and use the r-19. It will pay for the cost of lumber with the additional energy savings. Jmho

    2018 Pheasant Reports

    I'm headed to South Dakota over Labor day weekend and will probably do a hunt at a game farm. It will be interesting to see the numbers as I know they don't release pen raised birds.

    Shotgun Problem

    Probably best to send it in. We have a TriStar tt-15 and its a great o/u for trap. My understanding is that the warranty doesn't transfer so you probably will be charged for service unless it's under a recall. Otherwise there is a TriStar Facebook forum with lots of people and someone might be able to diagnose or try the trapshooters forum.

    I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better. I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered.

    In the last picture, the regular bacon slices are on the top and bottom. The buckboard pieces are the two in the middle

    It's not bad but I don't think it's as good as the bacon. I think I maybe had too much of the fat trimmed off. It's more like Canadian bacon.

    The last 3 weekends were spent butchering hogs and processing. I finally made my first batch of pepperoni, tried something different and cut loins on one into rib roasts, made bacon and buckboard bacon for the first time as well. Fun but tiring
  22. Why are the deer making themselves herd?
  23. Because big racks?
