Shooting

Recommended Posts

There was a post started about the tragic "accidental" shooting of a 60 year old gentleman near Elbow Lake. It seems to have been slowed down by a moderator or whom ever. I totally understand, but I have to say Wallygals post really changed the tone of the posts. I am all about nixing a witch hunt, but the fact is someone died when it 100% could of been avoided. For those that don't want people to jump to conclusions, etc. What if it was your Son, Dad, friend or other loved one that was killed? You don't flipping pull the trigger, ever, if there is even a flicker of doubt in your mind where your hunting partners are. It was a accident, but most definetly one that could of been avoided. Prayers go out to the family of all involved.

Rozman, "someone died when it 100% could of been avoided."

Don't you think that this youngster is playing that over and over an over in his mind right now at this very second. I can tell you he is wishing that he could take back that bullet. If I could I'd take on the roll of consoling this kid right now I would.

To use this as a learning experience now is not the right time.

I have a youngster that is getting into shooting and hunting. I don't want him to hurt himself or anyone else.

I've been vigilant on his firearm safety.

If I use any incidents as a learning experience its between him an I. I won't publicly use any tragedy to do that for anyone on a forum. Not when it it puts more suffering to those families involved.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
