After the alarm buzzis for 5-10 minutes at 4:00am some finally gets up and turns it off.
Go find asprin, take three because two won't work! Turn on the TV and turn to the weather channel to see wich way the wind is blowing and the temp. Turn up volume as to wake up the sleeping-beuties that didn't go to sleep until after 1:00am or after and try to wake them up. If they don't wake up right then and there then they can get there own sleepy-a$$ out whenever and not complain to me that we didn't wake them! Last year my brother didn't wake up after he went to bed at 2:30am. Well I watched about 15 deer go into the area he was supposed to be in and he wasn't there, he was sleeping!
Put on long underware, thermal sock, foot warmers, sweat-pants, fleece pants, and finally your camo hunting pants. Then five minutes after that try to sit down on the toilet without taking all of the clothes you just put on so you can do your thing relaxed! Ha HA!
Drive to your place to hunt and repeat what you did earlier and hope you brought toilet paper, and make sure your down wind of where you are hunting!
Take out sent pad and put sent on them and hope a buck don't think you are in heat!
Get to treestand and listen to the deer that are running away after you just about walk over them on your way to the stand! That's what happened to me last year!
Get in treestand, put safety belt on, pull up gun and fanny pack, hang all the stuff you want handy on you hooks that are screwed in the tree, put outer coat on so you don't get cold and look at watch every 5 minutes to see if it is shooting time yet.
Then the sun eventually light the woods and everything comes alive and then BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, sounds like the hunter missed. Sure wakes you up and your adrenilin really starts flowing! Can't wait!

    • So reviving a dead thread ..

      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
