  1. Having a loop to grab under the decoy and having the decoy slide to the weight is preferable in my opinion. Grab the loop, snap it on the carbiner and let the decoy float behind you as you go to the next decoy. The best models have a loop on each end, a sliding snap swivel on one end and a sliding weight on the other end.
  2. People do need those expensive coolers if they do any type of camping where ice and electricity are not available for 5-7 days. My expensive coolers get used in situations where other cheap coolers have failed after two days. Failed meaning what is supposed to be cold or frozen is no longer cold or frozen. There is a huge performance difference between your typical igloo and a roto-molded premium cooler.
  3. Yeti is the industry leader........ in marketing and premium image. Their products perform the same as RTIC. ORCA, Grizzly, K2 etc. A Yeti 45 quart hardside cooler is $350 and they never go on sale The same RTIC cooler costs $190 and they frequently have sales. The name Yeti isnt worth the extra $160 to me. (RTIC also ships for free and charges no sales tax so there is additional savings there) I'd rather use the saved money to fill the cooler with delicious beverages.
  4. We have a lake home in western Wisconsin. I set the thermostat at 47 when we leave the cabin. I have a Honeywell WIFI thermostat that I monitor and remotely set the temps with. It works awesome. If we are going up on Friday evening I use my phone to change the temperature to 68 on Friday morning. I do the same for the AC in the summer. We have a DSL internet connection now but did have slow satellite internet up until this past spring and the WIFI thermostat worked great even with the slow connection.
  5. Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington. Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
  6. $150/square foot is a ballpark estimate that is frequently used. The cost of the finishings will determine whether that number goes up or down.
  7. Its not a real big lake and there has been a problem with double dipping when the fishing is very good. It is a public access by the way so there are no costs to launch.
  8. We bought the pontoon new and had the Sea-Legs installed at the dealer so we never ran it without the Sea-Legs. Sea-Legs weigh 385 lbs so they do add some weight. Its like having 2 extra people on board at all times. We have a 22 ft pontoon with a 75 HP four stroke. The pontoon performs just fine but speed isnt a real requirement for how we use it either.
  9. We have a lake home on a western Wisconsin lake. At the public landing, there is a camera that runs during the spring, summer and early fall seasons. The lake association pays for its rental. Its is very heavy duty and is installed in a fixture that looks somewhat like a stainless steel fire hydrant. Its attached to the ground like a hydrant too. This device gives verbal messages to people launching their boat and it also checks for weeds on trailers. The pictures are sent wirelessly to somebody who monitors them. There is no auto-ticketing. The pictures have been used by the DNR to follow-up with boats that leave or enter the launch with weeds on their trailer. A couple tickets have been issued based on this evidence. The camera has also been used to identify people who are launching their boat twice in one day. I believe the device has heightened awareness about invasives. Its not perfect but it is a very cost effective tool to help manage an access point.
  10. We bought a pontoon last spring and went with the Sea-Legs. For us it was the right move. We use the Sea-Legs to dock/park the pontoon next to our dock where the water is only 2.5 feet deep.. We do not have a canopy over the pontoon. We use the pontoon playpen cover for protection. Putting the cover on and off is certainly a little work. However it is worth it as the pontoon stays very clean because of the cover. We have two other boats on lifts and frankly they get very dirty from dust, insects and even birds. The convenience is awesome but I spend a ton of time cleaning those boats up. We also set our pontoon up on our lags sand and gravel bars for swimming, floating etc. The Sea-Legs are much nicer than dealing with and anchor and windy situations. I also like the fact that I don't have to install and remove a pontoon lift/canopy each spring and fall or find a place to set the lift in the yard.
  11. I would avoid one with a touch screen and stick with buttons. You cannot work a touch screen with gloves on. I guess it depends if you where gloves. I have one of each and my Garmin with buttons is the one that gets used.
  12. Do a search on "walnut creek hardwood". They have some very nice turkey mount kits.
  13. The reason its difficult to find fresh ground horseradish at Cub or other big box grocery stores is because you are probably looking in the wrong area. This horseradish is in the refrigerator section. It is not in the condiment aisle with all the other horseradish sauces.
  14. Look at the Weather Tech liners before you buy a bed rug...
