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

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
