  1. cut the cord a few years ago and havent looked back. we have few amazon fire sticks that work fine. My kids can get by just with youtube alone lol. I have had to get a little creative to see some of shows and events I like to watch. HINT HINT Its too bad when a relative comes to visit and forgets to log out with their cable provider. I like to watch AMA supercross on Saturday nights. Years past I could get fox sports go app on a device and it wasn't an issue. Now NBC sports bought the TV rights and you have to buy the NBC Gold app ($49.99) to watch everything. With out the gold account I am unable to watch some races at all and some I cant even see live and have watch them on a delay. Still not going to pay the money for gold though. I feel that is going to be the future of anything we watch. $50 for nbc gold, another $50 to watch something else, and another $50 to watch something else, and next thing you know I am paying more than a monthly bill for any provider. I am all for paying for stuff I want to watch, I just don't think the prices they offer are worth the content so these providers wont be getting any of my money for the time being.
  2. It’s a truck, dents and scratches add character. I wouldn’t sweat it. have you priced out truck prices lately? Even new or used they are high across the board. Won’t see me buying another for the time being with where the markets at. If what you got is reliable and your confident it will get you to where you need to go I would keep it until it starts nickel and diming you. If anything parts to keep it going will be cheaper than buying something else.
  3. where did you find the hinges for this? I like the concept of this also, how does the luan material hold up to moisture?
  4. I hear you completely and see your points. I guess I am coming at this from the smitty sled perspective. Regardless of how heavy it is, if its on skis, and if I incorporate some sort of hitch or rope, and if I can pull it with an atv I think I am still ok. The areas where I fish rarely get and see the snow we have seen this season. This year is the exception not the rule for sure. I dont see the snow plowing issue or struggles pulling it with a atv. I have a 2 man flip over that I run and gun out of, but wanted to see if I could come up with some way to run and gun with the hub and get some more room for my entire family to fish. And for the most part the hub is easy to set up and dis-assemble but on windy days it can be adventure. I just want to be able to move quickly from one spot to the other with out having to pack everything back up and repeat to set back up. The flip overs are great for moving and I probably am guilty in some aspect of bringing too much stuff on the ice. But the hub with out a sled makes it difficult. Or you guys can just keep shooting holes in my theory and I can use those to convince the wife for a permy lol. Just trying to come up with something to pass the time as mother nature has me going stir crazy not being able to get out on the ice right now.
  5. anyone ever create a fold up floor for your hub shack. does your setup allow you to anchor your hub shelter to the floor? Would love to see of pics if you have them. The goal being that I wouldn't need to take down the house every time we wanted to move to a new spot. I am pondering making something for my big otter hub with hinged wood floor that would fold out to the same size of hub that I could anchor the hub to. The fold up floor would have a cheap set of skis attached to the edges. Would likely need 2 sets of skis and line them up back to back on the edges of the wood and maybe even another pair on the middle to help support it and help to move the floor when its folded up in half. I thought of framing it out with 2 layers of wood with some insulation in between and then going one step further installing some holes with catch covers. It would be heavy but I would think would be pretty manageable to get on and off my trailer if pulled by my ATV and it was on skis. The Otter XTH Pro is 96"x96" but I would make the floor a bit larger to allow the anchors on the corners some room to connect to. The only down falls I see would be the weight, and then some how trying to get it level when its on the ice. Typically we don't have much snow on the lakes or its pretty easy and not much work to clear a spot. But this year is the exception and I am trying to find some project to tackle since fishing is pretty limited and difficult right now. The other problem I am having is finding some cheap sets of skis.
  6. Are you guys doing a black hills hunt or somewhere else in SD? Hoping for a mild spring this year with much less snow to deal with.
  7. Have you looked into the Milwaukee power source? You could use the cordless drill and hand auger to cut holes and use the same batteries and the Milwaukee power source with the USB port? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M18-18-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Power-Source-Tool-Only-49-24-2371/203461325
  8. Is that this one: Really liked his response!
  9. when it gets this cold, I have always put a piece of "SPAM" in the gas tank it seems to help. Its a great octane booster for the body also. Those kind folks in Austin got something going over there.
  10. The tray, paper and everything look exactly like Pinkertons, and I looked up the Pit Room and I see they are both in Houston lol. I was just down there in August and Pinkertons was legit. Really good brisket and beef ribs. Pork ribs were ok but not great.
  11. I will take the cold and snow while fishing on the lake over having to deal with mosquitoes, jet skis and wake board boats on the water any day. With this bitter cold weather coming, I just keep repeating, its not the heat its the humidity lol
  12. On Monday driving to the lake I had to stop on a highway and let the pheasants get off the road. there were at least a dozen picking gravel off the side of the road and they were in no hurry to move for me. hope they can get through the rest of the winter with these cold snaps. good thing is that most the snow is getting blown around good and only causing issues where there is cover to make it drift. they should still be able to get out and scratch around the fields for food and the drifts in the cattails should make for some good pheasant condos
  13. if its the entire primary clutch assembly shouldn't have to do anything and its should already be balanced. Just make sure it has the same color spring, and weights. If the spring or weights are different, it will just make it shift out differently. Otherwise if buttons and weights are in good shape it should just slide back on. if you have any issues getting the old one off, shoot a little grease into the bolt hole and then put the puller in. the pneumatic pressure from the grease will help it pop off. if the clutch hasnt been removed in a while they can sometime be difficult to get off even with a puller.
  14. I have heard of places having a coyote hunt competition over night before. teams pay an entry fee. Go out and hunt over night, and meet back up . Payout is based on how many coyotes shot. Can also receive money or prizes for biggest or smallest yote taken.
