Harvey, I'm looking for a rangefinder. I went onto thier site and found the Laser 440 by Nikon for $219 it says the list price is $344 and your saving 36.24 percent, but I went online and Cabelas sells the same one for $219. Do you get deals here or no. Thanks

I had a buddy buy me a scope this fall. I am not going to say the store name but it does have a yellow sign. He got there variety scope it was a 3.5-10x42mm and it is listed on the box for 199.99 and when he rang it up and after taxes it was around 85 bucks. Gotta love how some places double the price of the product. I know this at cost but come on 100 dollar profit per scope:S just don't seem to fair to me. Thank God I have buddies working at differnt sporting goods stores laugh.gif. Just my 2 cents worth.

What I did was call and talked with Nick.The field classes I bought were about the same as other places and the scope was less.That is the price shipped to my door.I dont know what companies you are dealing with nor do I know thier policies.Give em a call and talk to him.

Somethimes one cannot factor only price and has to look at the whole picture as far as customer service and return policy.

It is hard to beat Cabela's in terms of Customer service and return policies and sometimes price.

Cabelas is good.One thing one also has to remember is that our sponsors help to keep these forums free for us to use and learn from others. smile.gif

We rip them apart on customer service, we are a MN company and give a great one on one service, and you can ask any member that has dealt with us. The retail price is the price you would see in a small retail store. There is also a price called M.A.P. pricing, this is the lowest price you can advertise the item at. Then there is the FM member pricing, this is the price that a sponsor for FM would give to the members. To get this price please email me!!

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      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.
