so my uncle called me up friday night asking to go and call a bit so i loaded up the truck and headded to meet him the first set we were laying in a hayfield overlooking a tall grassy field with woods to the left (40 yds) and pasture to the right( my uncle is on my right)

after twenty or so mins of calling for about twenty mins he came cruisin out of the woods and stoped at twenty yards... that was the end of him... dont know if i have ever been so happy... other than first deer...

Awesome, I was down in SE MN over the weekend, but family commitments prohibited me from heading out calling. After seeing the moon Saturday night, I am glad someone was out. Nice job on that first coyote. Looks like a big one too....

Is that your own artwork on the rifle stock? If so, that is very impressive

Since you are getting it tanned I would assume it wasn't rubbed? I got one friday night aswell and the mane was rubbed a bit. I thought it was a bit early for that.

Nice job, and good to see that someone is having some success.

I gave it a try last night. Got a couple of sets in before the clouds rolled in. First set (what are the odds) I had some guys pull up and start doing brodies on the nearest road. Second set, a herd of horses ran to the fence behind me, running back and forth, and neighing/snorting the whole time. Guess it just wasn't my night! By then, it was midnight, and too dark to shoot with anything but a shotgun. Gotta keep trying. Like to get a nice fur like you before it's all over.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
