    Hunting archery season solo is all I know. Just go hunt. If you have the time, use it wisely. You never know when life throws a curve ball and your hunting time gets slashed. Good luck to everyone! Especially those of you lucky enough to be going out west!

    Cheers to that! He’s shared a lot of info with me on some of his hunting areas in the local city hunts we’ve participated in the last few years. Thanks, rkhinrichs!

    2018 21’ fish house build

    WOW! That's some solid work there, man! Great job! I took on a boat rebuild this spring and, while no where near the level of this, I am very familiar with the trials and tribulations of trying to accomplish a task like this. Cheers to you! Going over your time and money budgets is a give-in on these projects. Enjoy your new toy!

    Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous. As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up.

    It’s the cost of doing it. There’s a lot of putzy, tedious grunt work involved that makes these projects take a lot longer than one would think. Just to replace a floor requires a complete strip down and rebuild. I wish i would have kept track of my hours I put into this, but I think a safe guess would be at least 150 hours, plus materials.... I’d have to charge 3-5 grand, at least. I’m sure some would pay it, but not many.

    Ha! How much you willing to pay? There were times during this I seriously thought about quitting my job and trying to make a living off of boat renovations/flipping boats. But I just seriously doubt I could make enough to make it worth it.

    Those gauges don't work that well. I get my RPMs from 1 and time off the other. Everything else doesn't work. Ha! Only had those 2. But I have definitely left those behind a few times over the years.

    I have taken the plunge into archery hunting

    Careful..... my fall used to consist of grouse/pheasant hunting and the fall run of steelhead on the Brule, all leading up to the rifle deer season. But then I found archery........Once bowhunting entered my life, bird hunting is something I rarely ever do now and I struggle to make time to hit the river (never even went last fall). But I also have young kids, so I'm in the same boat with finding free time. But the few times I do find some free time these days, sitting in a tree usually wins. It's very, very addicting! I was never a hardcore bird hunter though. I had lots of fun (and still do the few times I still get out there), but for me it was usually a good excuse to go on an armed hike with the dog and look for deer sign. But, I was/am still a diehard steelhead guy, so the struggle is real! Have fun!

    I did some YouTube research and you may be right! I’m going to go to the local marine shop and talk to some folks there and maybe get one.

    Thanks! I have water temp on depthfinder. I was thinking of a trim gauge, but have no clue how that would be hooked up/calibrated.
