HELP! Vexilar lost!

Recommended Posts

To make a long story a little shorter, my tailgate on my truck came open on my way home from lake Waconia tonight and my vex fell out of the truck somewhere between Wagener's bay and Belle Plaine.

I had some one else who was out on the lake tonight look for it on their way home but he had no luck. Another Item that fell out of the truck was found at the intersection by the Klein Bank or whatever it is called in downtown Waconia.

If someone picked it up and it still works, I would be happy to pay a reward if it is returned to me.

It feels like I lost my best friend. HELP!

Hey big dave I have a buddy that found a vex in Waconia on a road that would probably take you back home to belle plaine. It was also about the same time you lost yours if you can describe(model and such) you could have it back. email is in my profile just click on it.

Dave,

That guy would be me. I have your vexilar FL-8! I picked it up out of the road and you can come get it from me any time. I actually went around it and thought, boy that looked a lot like a vexilar, backed up and picked it up. When Andy and I were at Red Lake I told him, I had found it. The unit does work, but the case is cracked. Otherwise it is in pretty good shape. Andy had sent me your info yesterday regarding this unit but I was in Alabama for the Bassmaster Classic. Just got back late last night. Give me a shout. [email protected] (612) 251-5245 grin.gif

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy dump! When I made this post I never in a million years expected to see my vex again!

Matt, you are truly an awesome person for giving it back! Glad to see there are still a few good people out there. I will be giving you a call soon to arrange picking it up.

Thanks again,

Dave

Well, I finally got over to Matt's house to pick up my vex. Other than the case being broken a little, it's not too much worse for the wear.

Matt is such a super guy that he would not even take any money for a reward. I tried, but when I got my billfold out, he walked away and wouldn't let me.

It even turns out that I had met Matt before. He used to work at Profish enterprises where I got all the supplies to build my wheel house last year.

Thanks again Matt, and my 6 yr old son thanks you since he will be using this one once he gets the hang of it because I went out and bought a new FL-20 when I thought mine was gone forever.

Dave

    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
    • In the worst case, the population would have to be held at a low level for a few years, like maybe 5.      I still haven't seen much indication that prions in the dirt are an issue in actuality (as opposed to theoretically).   
    • Fire Mike Preifer now : https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders-nfl/kicking-adjustment-makes-difference-for-raiders-daniel-carlson-1546061/
    • The prions will always be in the soil, so the “clean” population will eventually contract them and we’re back to where we are now.    I love the the idea of trying to control CWD, but I don’t believe we can.   
    • I have not but it really sounds interesting. The video I watched used garlic, butter and thyme sprig when they seared it. Looked perfect when they cut it open.
    • It was probably always around but the deer population was kept to levels that were low enough that it never became an issue until people started to create game farms and food plots that concentrated the deer in smaller areas.    I suppose we could just go all in on the big antler craze and forget about eating them and just take the antlers for the wall. 
    • 99% of the time when I do beef I stick to kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper.  I salt the beef liberally as soon as I get it home from the market, wrap it back up in the butcher paper, and pop it in the fridge until cooking (24 hours is ideal, 12 is ok).   The salt will draw the water out of the meat, and then the meat will reabsorb the water with the salt molecules in it.  Seasons the inside and really helps produce a moist chunk o beef.   Check out articles on a dry brine for more details on how that science works.     Add the pepper before cooking.     I always have a bit of grated horseradish on the side.   The 1% of time I add more than salt n pepper, I add garlic and rosemary at the time I add the pepper.
    • Yeah, that also.  Thanks for coming along on the ride! 😉
