I was out front of Izatys last weekend and the auger was all the way down, barely breaking through. I would bring the extension.

Why wouldnt you always bring an extension. There is really no reason not to bring one along just in case.

I have a good reason not to bring one along... I don't own one. I will by tomorrow though.

I agree. Bring one. We were on 4 and 5 mile and some places we were buried and other places we had room to spare. Bring one just in case.

I picked one up on Thursday, but didn't need it. Close though. At least I have for next time.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
