Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works.
Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.
I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.
As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes. I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away. Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years. I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry. I was ON the path when I got wet. Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast). The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking. Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again. And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks. Spud on...
