I thought about babying her through the brush, but it is an 870, she needs to beat the brush to feel normal. Probably the last time it will look this good too. I have thought about a scope, but with the rollover on the stock, my head feels a little better lined up for the open sights, than before. scope might come next year, we'll see how the winter goes with MN new night time coyote hunting with lights law. Might have to go with a red dot by then

30 bucks for the forend, 80 for the stock. That was from cabelas, a finished product. you can buy the same set from the company that makes them for less, it is called a "virtual inlet part" which means you might need to do a little sanding and carving to get it fit flush. the company that makes the set is boyds gun stocks. do search for them.....I thought I might as well go with the finished set, I had the gift cards burning a hole in my pocket. It adds a little bit more weight, but it is so much easier to hold onto with the thumbhole stock....I am not sure yet if I will but the sling back or not

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
