Has anyone else tried this stuff. Tried to shot a doe the other day when it was about 5 above and the powder didnt ignite. So triple 7 is loaded.

Boy prior to this post I've heard nothing but rave reviews for this powder. One guy I hunt with can't brag it up enough...

i have heard of nothing but great things about it. however, i prefer the triple seven pellets instead. they fit the barrel better. shockey pellets are long and skinny, hence leaving more open space, which leads to a touch less distance the bullets head down the barrel. also, new gun, or freshly cleaned, ALWAYS fire at least one primer without a powder charge. the hot flash will burn any oil, and blast any gunk out of the flash hole.

i used to have a problem with the powder not igniting after a fresh clean job. i fire two primers after each cleaning, and haven't had a problem since.

My friend got 2 bottles out the AP sticks and he does not like them because they crunch down and sometimes leave a air space. and put the round all over the place.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
