Tensions are starting to run a little high in here lately, call it post season fever or envy I would like you all to keep it positive and fun. I really don't like stepping in and I really haven't felt a need too. Ribbing is fine as long as it's not personal. You regulars have made monitoring this thread enjoyable and I would like to thank all of your for your baseball insight. With that I look forward to the rest of the post season and off season.

The Twins' owner could buy the Yankees, Mets and Red Sox, build each a new stadium and still stay on the Forbes 400 list of billionaires. What's he do here? Stand in line with his hand out after foreclosing on family farms.

I slept in today and finally got on board and now I am almost at a loss for words guys (although that might be because the Twins are down 2-0).

Many good posts today, especially by Tim and RunD.

Here's one I learned a long time ago that I try to live by:

It is more important to be judged not by what you say about others, but by what others say about you.

I am pretty darn sure most of us know it is all in fun.

I hope everyone knows my posts are meant that way and not as any personal attack on anyone.

Now, to lighten it up a bit, remember this too:

No fun having a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

And finally, for the post-season Tim, how's 'bout we start a thread to get to know our contributors a little more personally? Just a thought.

Geno,

I'm right with you, and you can personally attest to that fact. We have been slinging the mud north and south for the past 3 or 4 years on this site and I always mention it about 3 or 4 times a year that it is all in fun. My rivalry with the Cubbies has been documented back since I was 10 back in 69 and the Twinkie thing has been going for the past 4-5 years. I have said it before that it is just grown kids on this website just having fun. A little of the ole Eddie Haskell, giving the business! Nice timing for CNY to step in and just remind everybody to play nice though I can't blame them right now. If my team was playing like theirs in the post season I would be a little edgy myself. But you and I can just sit back and grin as both our teams took the early tee times this year! Windy

      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...   tg
