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.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
