10 hours until N. Dakota trip

Recommended Posts

2thepointsetters

I am counting down the minutes until I leave for Kensal tomorrow morning at 5:30 am. The truck is packed and has been repacked because I am really excited to get my dog back from the trainer and do some hunting this weekend. I dont know how I am going to handle the count down to pheasant opener.

I will be after sharptails Saturday morning with the new setter and new gun, so I hope everything goes well. I would love to hit the bird if the dog does point one. I am hunting alone Saturday and with the dogs handler on Sunday. Should be a great time.

I will post pictures when I get back.

I bought a setter from a friends dad that trains dogs in Kensal around last Christmas. We did some sharptail hunting there late last fall and they were everywhere. Good luck it should be a great time.

The hunt went great. My girlfriend and I had a fun weekend with lots of birds. Sharptail numbers are great and the dog had a lot of nice points. It missed the first few birds before getting my 3 on Saturday, but my girlfriend shot 3 for 3 on Saturday (The guys I know in North Dakota are never going to let me hear the end of that)

I have some nice pictures but I am having trouble getting them on the computer.

I also went went dove hunting twice and that is a great time. I had a hard time learning how to lead them because they fly so fast. After I got my first one it became a little easier, I had to lead them by 3 or 4 feet it seemed.

2thepointsetters, sounds like you had a great time. I'll be making a trip to ND over MEA this year. Went out last year for a few days and this year we'll be out there for 5 days- pretty pumped!

Maybe you don't want to tell your buddies she went 3 for 3. Maybe you want to turn the story around, but just don't mention anthing when she is around wink.gif

I wouldn't be complaining bout her liking to the BPS. I think you would be getting a better deal!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      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 !!
