  1. I called, they seemed baffled, I'm okay with that. Going to plan my Oct trip as normal
  2. Thank you!!! I'll call this week and post my information I get
  3. Finding a lot of conflicting information about this. Apparently March 9th this year Canada outlawed guns with bores over 20mm which would mean 12 gauge shotguns. I see information stating that hunting shotguns are not in this ban but not on official government websites. Who would I contact for clarification? Boarder patrol? Customs? Fish and Wildlife?
  4. My friends give me a hard that I drive like an old man and drive a normal cab long box. I rarely exceed 5mph over the limit, accelerate slow and drive knowing I'll be the one fixing it if it breaks. Lots of truth to your quote Duffman
  5. I've always ran what the tires sidewall stated and same on all tires
  6. I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevit
  7. Reed's has a 6' x 6' eskimo hub (non insulated) for $129.99 for anyone looking for a cheaper costing house or someone just getting into the sport. It's a good quality house for the price. Kettle
  8. This will be the last year I hunt in Minnesota. I don't know if it is my luck or what. To me it is not the number of hunters but the number of unethical hunters. I turned in three different groups on three different occasions for hunting violations to TIP. Before anyone blames youth the ages ranged from 16 years old to 64 years old. In regards to hunting this year I had a great opener. Lots of rice, I was in the middle of nowhere where I had dragged my canoe behind my four wheeler for about three miles. About an hour before shooting a group of two young guys showed up, asked if they
  9. I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me! Best of luck hunting! Kettle
  10. Moose could definitely be right. There is a possibility that you could hit freeze up. Last several years it wasn't until mid November, I think that you will be fine. If you are there during the start of freeze up it will be magical. Good luck Kettle
  11. Carb cycling and runs of keto diets work well but once you are off them weight normally comes back. Get rid of processed food and exercise, probably the safest and best way to loose weight.
  12. Plenty of options if you are willing to give up the 9' rod storage. Center rod storage on the Skeeters and Pro V GL are 7'6'' yarcraft makes an 18' boat with 8' center storage. 9' storage under 20' is going to be difficult unless you don't mind stuffing them on the side.....

    With all hopes it's a soft tissue injury, like others have said, trip to the vet is in order. Last year before I put my lab down she went down an embankment, lost sight of her then heard the yelp. 150$ later found out it was minor but the money was worth the peace of mind
  14. 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear. I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem. Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub. It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues. It worked, could it be better? Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you. Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down
  15. Saw two houses about 50 yards out on a part of wahkon bay yesterday on Mille lacs. Flip over and a hub style one. I think that area was open water on Monday and possibly still on Tue. Be safe people........
