HEY ELY DUDES!!!

10 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Anybody have any old plywood laying around that I can cut a 40" X 20" piece out of?? It can be 3/8 or 1/2 or even 5/8" thickness. I came up a little short building a locker for my ice rods so I can put them in my Otter sled and not have them get all beat up. I most certainly DON'T want to go to the lumber yard and buy an entire sheet especially since all I have used so far was scraps left over from the fish house project. Can anyone help me out?? laugh.gif Thanks!

Justin

Justin......Hey i am a dudette!!!!

Anyone have a ramp i can use to get my quad into the back of the truck? Another problem again with the cat.. and it has only 30 miles on it..

First it wouldn't turn off, had to undo the battery, when i connected it again it start up on it own and wont shut off no matter what i did. Then it wont go into Lo and now it wont start it just clicks the cellinoid is shot.. The guy at the Cat dealer just keep making excuses, and you know i just got my new battery from him, it didn't even come with one , i had to use a broken one cause he gave mine away and didn't have one.. Its driving me crazy..

Hey Tammi,

Sorry, but I don't have a ramp or a trailer. crazy.gif I have been looking to buy a trailer for a while, but can't come up with one in the right price range.

Good Luck,

Justin

Kallista,

If you bought it brand new and have had the concerns you have had, I would call dealer and have them come pick it for you. Down here, when you buy a tractor new, there are a couple dealers that will come and pick up for repairs or acc. to be installed. Worth a shot!

Good luck!

Hi Kallista.

I'll just throw this out there. You can make some decent ramps out of green treated 2x10's or 2x12's with a 2x4 screwed crossways on either end to hold it on the back of the truck. I use one for sliding my Voyager in and out of my truck if I'm alone. I would probably add firring strips or something on top for traction though.

I'm sure they'll take the weight. If you still need something in a month or so, and trust me on this, I can make a couple for you and bring them up on laker opener. I have extra at home.

How long is your truck bed?

Its a long bed... but i think the quad isn't that heavy i think if 2 people might be able to get it on the back bed..

Thank you for that info, it will be something i will be building come spring, maybe something that can be slid into the bed too to take with for loading and unloading for summer riding..Sounds like something i would be interested in.. and yes i can wait, i just need to get this to him, since he wont come and get it.. I am about ready to give him a piece of my mind with this thing..

      Well,  it was a typical morning hunting turkeys.     This season has been a bit different for me than past years. I was hunting "new" property that i didnt know well and I had neglected to apply for my typical A season tag.  In turn, I planned on the first 2 seasons were devoted to the kids.  I did my usual early morning roost gobble runs and late afternoon field checks.  These confirmed we had birds around, but rarely did they use the field. So a "deep" woods hunt would be in order.  To keep this short, the goal of getting the kids out and a bird was met with frustration and missed chances.  The boy only wanted to go the first 2 days and the daughter i got out for one morning sit.  That was it for 2 weeks,  but i continued to get up early and try and then continue my long range scouting. Wednesday comes and it is the start of "my" season.  Took the morning off of work, and to the blind I go.  Beautiful icy cold weather greeted the start of the hunt.  The birds were quiet on the roost, but made themselves know once on the ground.  However, like most 3 seasons, the toms were locked in on the real hens.  They would pass by me a couple times but never come to my set.   Work beckoned me Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.   Friday, back out to the blind.  Once again no gobbling on the roost? Strange. Then again about 6 birds on onthe ground the SE of me gobbling away.  They would repeatedly work to about 70 yds of me back and forth.  Again, never leave the real hens.  His would go on till 10 am.  The things go quiet.  I would spend the 3 hrs, walking calling,  waiting and repeating.  Not one gobble!  At 2 pm i make my way back to the blind for the afternoon, took a little nap.  As i awake i have a splitting headach.  I try and fight through it, planning on moving the blind to where the birds seem to spend time after fly down.  The headache is too much, i just pack up a go home at 6.  I would sleep the rest of the night.   Saturday morning arrives, feeling refreshed.  In the blind i go, the birds actually gobbled on roost this morning!  They are some distance away.  I keep thinking i needed to go to the SE and sit by a tree and wait.  But i fear i may bump hens or quiet birds at that time of morning.  So i sit tight and wait.  Like clockwork, after flydown the gobbles get closer and closer.  Again, stopping about 70 yds away, not wanting to leave the live hens.  This morning, i decide to call softer, but more often.  Soon i get to talking to a live hen.  Lo and behold she works her way closer and the gobblers follow! Now they get closer, but not nearly close enough. I hear a new gobble directly behind me, it is very close, so I ready myself.  Well, it seems this new gobbler has made the hens and original gobblers retreat back over the ridge.  I call, but they will not get closer.   Soon i hear some rustling, so i peak out the NE window, i seen 3 turkeys working towards my set about 45 yds out. Sit back down and ready myself.  Seconds later i see 3 jakes step out onto the trail. Thier mind is already made up as they work quickly to the decoy.  One is in half strut the whole time.  I Look them over and decide i will take the half strutter, looks to be the biggest bird.  Took some time for them to separate to give me a clean shot. Jake is down. 19.09lbs  5" beard  2/16 & 3/16 spurs.

      40 inch pike are pretty common at Zippel Bay this time of the year.  The Ice Out Pike Derby at Zippel Bay is well attended again this year.....I talked to Nick Painovich about pike, the opener and other stuff I was wondering about......Here is the short dockside interview

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff
