Rippinlip, what kind of facilities have you got for your indoor 3D? How many targets, what kind of distance? Same location as the MSAA shoot last summer?

Might be interested in driving down.

We normally shoot 30 targets in a range from @ 8 yards to @ 27 yards, depending on angles we can get to around 30.

Normally 3 moving targets too.

We shoot in a building at the Rice County Fair Grounds in Faribo.

I believe the MSAA shoot was held in Owatonna, we hosted a few Qualifying rounds, but not the state.

Thanks for starting this thread Don, the wife and I are hoping to make a few shoots this year up to your club also, last year was tough with family issues and we had to say goodbye to my wife's mom this past year that was not expected.

Hey guys I just wanted to show off and invite everyone to Echo Valley Archers indoor 3D range.

We are located in West Union, Iowa. About 40 miles south of the MN border (just south of Decorah, IA) and about a 2 hour drive from Rochester.

Take a look at our awesome setup.

We have a few more shoots coming up this winter.

February 1, 2, 22, and 23.

I thought I would give everyone here an invite to come shoot with us. I know it may be a long drive for a lot of you, but the range is worth the drive. It's a fun place to shoot, with a lot of friendly people.

If anyone has any questions feel free to send me a PM or post a message here.

Wife and I will not be there until after noon.

Heading to church, then the range.

Our paths will cross eventually, looking forward to seeing you.

Watch out for the "moving" targets, I brushed them in well. lol

Have fun.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
