I believe that Little Crow Shooting Sports in Hutchinson could help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

I saw this last night and did't reply, but after thinking about it, the best way that I find the true value of a gun is do a search on some of the big internet auction sights for the gun. See what the same gun of similar condition is going for. I have a gun that is book valued at $18 dollars, but it never sells for anything less than $175 on any of those auctions. Guns are odd that way. If you are looking for antique value or for insurance reasons, you will probably have to go to someone.

Any info on the gun or why you are appraising it?

1876 Smith and Wesson Scofield, MINT condition, thought to be never fired. Not a clone or reproduction, this has been verified by a S & W historian, using the serial number, it was issued to the US govt. I'm only curious to the market value for Sh#ts and giggles. It has been inherited by a family member along with many other collector pistols and rifles, both replicas and originals, but this one caught my attention.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
