    Where Ya Opening The Season

    On my land with one buddy in area 241. Which stand I am in will depend on the wind, and the weather, I have box stands if it is raining, otherwise in one of my ladder stands. Evenings are by the wood stove in my shack with a toddy, reading, or picking a guitar. Good luck everybody, hunt safe.

    Gutter covers?

    Interesting, I had not thought about wasps but I can see it happening. They like to start nests under the eaves of my shed every summer. Screens may be a better way to go.

    Gutter covers?

    I don't want to replace my existing gutters.

    Gutter covers?

    Now that I am in my 60's I am getting to be much less excited about climbing tall ladders to clean out my gutters. Are those gutter covers that keep leaves etc. out of the gutters a good deal? Looking at them, it looks to me that in a hard rain the water would just sheet off of them, but people have said that does not happen? Pros and cons? Does the ice in the winter bust them up? Expensive or not too bad? Looking for any helpful opinions, thanks in advance.

    Hose timer

    I found ones back in 2016 made by the Toro company that worked for me. Not sure if they are still available.
  7. I have decided to switch to all-copper bullets in my .30-06 for deer hunting. I am looking at the Barnes vor-tx and the federal premium vital-shok trophy copper. Anybody have any experience with one or both? The ballistics look a tiny bit better for the Barnes but since I really don't get shots much over 100 yards it probably doesn't matter.

    Meat Sales

    Cub, at least the one in Inver Grove Heights has been having whole frozen ducks for 99 cents/pound. I went back and got a couple more yesterday.

    Purple Martins

    Not sure what you would have me say. You can't be in your own driveway because it bothers the birds?

    Purple Martins

    This was my experience, may be completely different than others. I put up a house in my back yard, less than 40 feet from my house, pole was about ten feet tall. Had to remove a lot of sparrow nests until the martins found it, but I did have martins move in. They were beautiful to watch fly for sure. Unfortunately they would dive bomb anyone that came anywhere near, maybe with a taller pole that would not happen? They would fly silently up behind you, then squawk right as they went past. I knew I would not put up the house the following summer when I saw my neighbor, who was working on his boat in his driveway, swinging his landing net at one that was diving at him. From watching them, they would mainly catch dragonflies to feed to the young ones. By the time the mosquitos came out at dusk, the birds were all done flying, so they did not help with mosquitos. This was just my experience. A lot of people have houses and enjoy them, my guess is that if the pole was higher maybe the birds would not see people as a threat. I still have the house, if I ever move to a lake I will try it again.
  12. I think you are thinking of Sportsman's Guide- they are in south st. paul, Sportsman's warehouse was in Woodbury.

    Snowy Owl in the Metro

    I am in Inver Grove Heights and have seen a snowy owl a couple of times hanging out around a patch of woods. I walked in there and found him but he would not let me get close at all, wish I had a good camera with a telephoto lens.

    Question on a-maze-in smoker

    Ah. Attach a box to the side of the smoker to put the amazein in? Interesting idea. I was thinking of getting an unglazed tile a little larger than the amazein and try having it sit on that. I would not have a problem cutting a hole in the smoker if that would solve the issue, tho. Thanks for the thoughts, everybody.
