Cooter:

That pastured valley makes me salivate. Good looking place to set-up shop for awhile.

Good work on the bird. We've only killed one bird that was missing a spur......but a dandy it was, just like yours.

That pasture was full of turkeys this year. Usually its better in fall but the past few years its been real good in spring again. When I first started hunting the area was unbelievable then my uncle and as of now every surrounding patch of timber has been logged. Its great for deer and I think some of the old cuttings have matured enough where there is a good diversity and the birds are coming back more in spring. Not just the pastured areas but we also have been planting some rye, corn, clover, etc plus some new hay seeding to help. I've been hunting elsewhere the past 6 years but may have to reconsider! To be honest, I've been bumped from one good spot to the next but have always been fortunate enough to have great areas to hunt.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
