  1. I think I know the answer, but . . . After running for about 3 hours the output on my flasher battery dropped from 12.5v to 10.1v. Pretty much means it's dead, correct?

  3. A simple slate pot call. Easy to get reasonable sounds out of with minimal practice. They keep your hands busy, so remember to put it down early so's you're ready and don't spook the bird.

    First Ice

    I've thought about that too. My winter bike has studded tires. Was the attachment rigid?
  5. Another cynical, bloated Mayweather circus, another nail in the coffin of boxing. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight. A virtually enending parade of douche bag "celebrities", the Burger King King in his entourage and a lackluster fight.
  6. 9" gill, cpr'ed. Not bad for a metro lake.
  7. They run a very tight firing line, tho. You won't be able to clean your gun when the line is down, which makes sustained shooting a slow process.
  8. +1 on the Clam. I've got 7 combos in mine.
  9. Thanks for the advice. Haven't had a chance to get back yet. Probably won't be til next week. We'll see . . .
  10. Yep, probably need to go take a closer look.
  11. Just saw an FL-18 ultrapack for $200 at my neighborhood pawn shop. Seems like a pretty good deal. Any thoughts?
  12. 239 Filled 2 out of 4 tags. I shot a nice little fork Sat am and the new guy got a decent 8 point that eneveng that was chasing a doe all day. Too darn warm!
  13. And the penalty for shooting one down is the same as for any other aircraft.
  14. It's a shame this d-bag walks because of an avoidable procedural cock-up on the DNR's part, but it's the right call. My question has been: If his actions were well known in the community, and he's essentially stealing resources from the community, how has been so hard for the DNR to catch him? No one turns him in? Maybe a little frontier justice? Disrupt his "hunts", etc?
  15. Any advice on particular zones? Or will that be pretty obvious with some research? I've only looked on my phone so far, maps a little hard to read
  16. Antelope somewhere. Trying to decide between SD and WY, leaning toward SD because I already know the area somewhat.
  17. I definately would believe! Done it multiple times now. Will have to try again and try those tricks. Thanks Rebel!
  18. For what it's worth, my Little Buddy is pretty darn tempermental. Worked ok at first, now pilot won't stay lit when the knob is released. Probably the thermocouple, I know, but seems to be the off switch to me. Sometimes I can get it to work if jigger with for a while (a long while), but if I bump it at all it goes out and the whole process starts over. Very frustrating as it it a great size for my flipover. Just got a sunflower for the pop-up, though.
  19. Great story! I've recently gotten the bug to do a public land antelope hunt in 2016. Had been thinking South Dakota as I have at least some knowledge of the general area, but Wy sounds like a good option as well. Obviously not you kids' first rodeo planning a hunt, but would be mine. Definately fueled the fire! Thanks
  20. Cool! Had a similar experience: Last morning of my season, a gobbler coming in from the woods behind me. A red-tail flys over and gives my hen decoy a look. Gobbling is getting closer and the hawk smacks my decoy on the 2nd pass, hard behind the head. The gobbling is closer yet and my attention is focused on that, behind and to my left. Out of my right comes the hawk again, hits the deke again and scares the mess out me. Now I'm starting to worry that the hawk is gonna scare my bird away! It makes one last pass without hitting, the gobbler finally struts out a few minutes later and the rest is history. 23#, 9 1/2" beard and 1" spurs. Fun morning!
  21. Great! Turns out I've a block of beeswax in my sewing kit that oughta work well. Thanks! Now I just need to replace the zipper pulls I tore off trying to unzip the door . . .
  22. When it's cold, low teens and colder, the condensation on the inside front of my Clam Kenai freezes. I keep my Little Buddy heater behind me in the sled, so the freezing is worst on the inside of the door and the zipper becomes inoperable. Any thoughts on a fix for this? Some sort of lube on the zipper?
  23. Try pushing the off switch a few times before relighting. That often works when mine doesn't want to start.
