New Gear

What is it about buying new gear that makes you wonder if you will be satisfied with it? Here is my story...

Earlier this year, I started to purchase a Deer Rifle as I don't mind shooting borrowed gear, but everyone likes their own suff. I chose a Tikka T3 stainless on black 30-06. I recieved many pros and cons from friends and family.(family likes, friends criticized) Then it was down to putting the scope on it and received many suggestions from everyone on the planet. It was so overwhelming that I didn't even believe the magazine reviews anymore. I decided to call Nick at Optics4hunting.com and WOW!! I spent a few good hours and talked about options and differences among all of the manufacturers. We finally decided to go with the Bushnell 3200 Elite 3-9x40 with Firefly reticle. I can honestly say that I haven't been more sure about the purchse. He gave me his word and from what I have seen here it is honest. Well I fired the rifle yesterday and it was the best feeling to see my friends look at the target after 3 shots and say WOAH!! That is SWEET!! The 3 shots were 1 inch high center of target and about the size of a quarter apart. A big thanks to Nick.

Now if deer have a plus sign on them I'll be set.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.

      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.
