Being I will be in SD Pheasant hunting in Mid December, I will vote for December 17th. Not just because I won't be around the week before that, but it is usually really cold at my house after I return from a longer hunting or fishing excursion!!! hehehehehe

The colder the better, eh?

Dude, I set up the voyager in the garage the other day, roped over the heater, and sat in it hanging out for a while. Mrs boilerguy thinks I have a couple of screws loose.

Well as far a standing on the ice the first day for that was Nov. 10th! I was shooting ducks and geese off the ice last Saturday. As far as fishing goes i'm thinking the 12/8 to 12/15 range hopefully it's sooner but that's when I was out last year according to my calendar and if memory serves me you were there with me Bill.

I do believe you're correct. I'm hoping to hit a couple 10 acre ponds in NW IA before I go anywhere. The history of those two during first ice is pretty impressive. You may be able to tag along as long as you don't have to babysit or "work". I'll get ahold of you when the time comes as for now im off to do a couple mods on my house and clean a few birds.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)
