Hunting today?

7 posts in this topic

With this 100% chance of snow tomorrow I'd bet a few deer might be active tonight....I can't make it and was planning on tomorrow afternoon, but the call for snow and wind doens't sound good for man or beast.

I can't make it out tonight but I shot a decent 8pt

(17'' wide) last night with the smokepole. Not bad for a wildlife management area! I put a good shot on him at about 70 yards and he only went about 35 yards then tipped over. The new hornady sst bullets work great! I will try to get pics on later. Good luck to those still chasing the big one!

I thought the same thing cooter but I went out and only saw three does probably 2/3 to 3/4 mile away from me. I was really expecting better tonight, not even the pheasants were moving...

I went out with the muzzleloader this morning and man was it cold! Quite a few deer were moving around all day and I was able to put a nice doe in the freezer. It'll be fun to get out in the snow this weekend, but I haven't stepped foot on any ice yet this year. Decisions, desisions..... grin.gif

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
