Great deal on my new Tikka

4 posts in this topic

I just thought I would let you guys know of a VERY good deal going on at a national brand store in Owatonna (and also other locations).

I was able to pick up a brand new Tikka T3 lite stainless/synthetic .270 WSM for $439 last night. Regular price was $589 - $100.00 (over $500 purchase)= $489 - $50 (in store credit) = $439.00. This was far far cheaper than anything I could find locally or online.

Looking forward to using it, wow, sure is a light gun!

A very good buy indeed. I bought my son a Tikka stainless light, .308, for much closer to the higher price, a month ago. One of the few lefty models I could see for the boy.

Very fine rifle. From what I read, the barrel comes off the same line as the Sako. And tested three shots, 1/4 minute, at 100yds? For my hunting, I'll save some money.

That bolt is the smoothest I've worked.

Just think, 9 boxes of shells will cost you about the same as the weapon that is firing them...ammo prices have gone crazy, but it is the price to be paid and one that I am more than willing to pay for with the war.

Good luck with your new fire-stick.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
