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.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • 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...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
