The new 6.0 with infered flash an in feild monotering for 299.00 or the 4.0 infered flash without infeild monotering. i thinks it a no brainer on the 6.plus if i buy it at cabelas an spend 300 I get an extra 75 bucks to spend on their newest promotion card. What do you guys thinks. Any other suggestions? Boar

You are obviously invoking the 48 hr rule grin.gif I almost got caught when mine noticed the color screen on the h2o c, "umm, never noticed that before" she said. whew! close one there. The regular h2o was a birthday present she spent alot of time picking out. I didn't have the heart, at the time, to tell her I really wanted the color.

your secret is safe with me. Besides it would take quite the wife to figure out how to get this far in the forum.

Boar, the 4.0 is infared as well if that makes a difference. Moultrie came out with two new models, the 4.0 and the 6.0, both of which are no flash infared cameras. Great bang for the buck compared to many of the other companies. Good luck!

I'm not even going to tell you what I did, she'd kill me if she found out, but it involves a new benelli. When we got married I had 3 guns, I'm up to nine, she is none the wiser. I think that they are reproducing. Good luck with the trail cam. The cabela's merchandise money can be a good deal, I got 100 bucks in free merchandise.

I just got a set of Nikon Monarch Binoculars this weekend. My wife came home to find me playing with them. Of course she came through the front door instead of the garage, otherwise I would have heard the garage door and been able to hide them. I was in it deep, so I replied, honey you need to back up I can't focus in on you at this distance. She is nine months pregnant and didn't think it was as funny as I did. I almost got smacked.

The short story 'gun running' by Patrick McManus should be required reading for all those interested in acquiring new firearms. I think it was in the book "Grasshopper Trap", circa mid-1980's.

She started laughing. She has a good sense of humor about it, but there were a few seconds in there where I thought my life might be over. Lets just say it cost me though. We went shopping for cloths for her and the baby the rest of the day.

I take the safe way out. I ask her for everything!! If she says no I ask again later. cool.gif I learn that from my 6 and 9 year old.

If I happen to buy something out of "need" or I just see something I always tell her ASAP. She is going to find out anyway.

There was one time I bought $80 of discounted fishing lures I forgot about. I asked her if I could go get some Fishing lures and she replies with... "Why not pretend to go, walk into the computer room and pull out the (insert naughty word here) bag from the LAST TIME!" It was like Christmas all over again!

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk
      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun 
    • Rick
      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.
    • IceHawk
      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
