The son and I are planning on being there Saturday and maybe Sunday. If we can't be out chasing them anymore might as well start getting ready for next year. I'm sure there will be some new toy that I just can't live without. Maybe another dog? Can't have enough of those.

THis will be our first pheasant fest also. I know that we'll spend alot of time in bird dog alley. Supposed to be around 30 breeders and kennels there. Do a goole search on pheasant fest. They have the vendors and seminars listed along with the floor plan so maybe you can plan your evening that way.

Reddog: I don't have any one real toy I'm looking for, but with little effort, I'm sure that I could find one. grin.gifgrin.gif

Here's a link to the vendors and daily programs going on for this weekend's event. www.pheasantsforever.org/events/fest/attractions.php

Sounds like they have some top notch companies and pro's in their own field, lined up to attend.

i am going to head down tonight so i can go ice fishing tommorow before the snow hits, i heard we are supposed to get 3-4 inches. i guess to kick this thing off they are having some dog march through the skywalk, this should be real cool. i will post what i saw and what i thought was the coolest.

I've decided to do my part to help the pheasants that are left in my part of the state.

I'm going to harass the coyotes this weekend, instead. wink.gif

i ended up going down last night and got a heck of a deal on a couple of knives. they were selling boyt knives with a hardwood handle, stainless steel blades with gut hook and partially serrerated with a leather sheath. they were fixed blade. so i decided i was going to buy one and they had a few sitting out so i was going to buy the one that was sitting out but then i decided i would open another box and see what the other handles looked like. and to my suprise there were two in the box. so i went to checkout and told the lady what i had and she just looked on her price sheet and rang it up. they were 20 bucks so i got 2 for 20 bucks total instead of 40. they were regularly 60 and are selling for 60 on the internet at the boyt site but they had a special for the event. these were at the boyt booth by the winchester guns and they have a bunch of gun cases around the edge so look for it and get yourself a couple.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
