Deer stand wood

1 post in this topic

Just a hint, nows the time to hit your local lumber yards and pick up their cull lumber. I picked up a pile of treated 2x4's and 2x6's for $65 and it had about 35 boards, none less than 10 foot and some of them 16 footers. The construction crews have been busy all summer and of course they don't want some of the twisted boards but the deer don't care. When you take that 14 foot 2x4 and start cutting it into two foot lengths for the ladder of your stand, you hardly notice the twist. I've also found treated 4x4's and treated decking material in the cull piles. They also have untreated wood in their piles but I generally shy away from them, I want my stands to last.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
