    Opening Day

    planning on heading out saturday morning/evening and sunday evening on some local public land. Hope to see a doe or 2 atleast saturday, then head to a buck stand sunday. nofish, I know what you mean, the first couple years after college, it was tough for me to get motivation to go out since most of my buddies live further away and or quit bowhunting in general. Still not the same when I go by myself, just have to wait for my son to get another year or 2 older so he can keep up with the scouting work

    What's Your Go To Broadhead?

    i go back and forth between the rage and the muzzy's but the last few years I have been using Muzzy's, not trusting my Rage heads, the o-ring isnt holding the blades in consistently, but they make a great hole

    Cooking Bear Meat

    dont want to get the trick; agree, bear meat is great, like everything else, it just needs to be handled well during the processing; those with bad experiences may have tried meat from someone who was dilly-dallying with the processing when it was 70+ degrees out

    Cooking Bear Meat

    dang, thats scary, especially when it happens to a little one; they ever figure out where it came from?

    2018 Pheasant Reports

    I hope the report stays true and that there should be minimal amounts of grazing/bailing Britt, I wish they would release more hens, the one study I read said something like only 3 out of 100 released hens survive to reproduce

    2018 Pheasant Reports

    SD may just have to keep stocking more WI pen raised birds to help pad the numbers... the encouraging part is the amount of WIA acres added this year along with a better precipitation year vs last year's haying. but overall CRP acres is still down as you already know

    Running Ac From Garage Outlet

    we've only used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run

    Running Ac From Garage Outlet

    its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power. this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...

    Running Ac From Garage Outlet

    So I know youre supposed to run the ice castle's AC from a 30amp outlet, but could I run it off of a standard 20amp outlet out of my garage? I would think if it gets too hot the 20amp fuse will pop? I've ran it for a short period of time before; but I was just thinking in case we have company over some time and needed some overflow sleeping arrangement... Its connected via a 50' 12 guage cord I beleive

    Mine center area

    smallies biting for you guys pretty good? we were up there a couple of weeks ago and the fishing was pretty slow, except for the 10-12" walleyes; we were on little turtle lake in Mine centre, needless to say, we are not going back there
  14. hmm, ok, I did confirm with SM and they said the bit itself isnt made to take that much torque; sounds like i would be better off trying to sell the gas auger this fall and going to an electric one
