Thanks guys. We’ll maybe just stay with Skoglunds. I was just hoping to find some better pricing due to 4 of the hogs going to other people and keep their costs down. Any idea what a 300 pound live hog will yield in take home? Without bringing home the feet/head ect.. Are they about 60%? 180 pounds?Brushy19ParticipantNovember 13, 2014 at 6:44 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantMarch 3, 2014 at 4:57 amPost count: 633
Grizz, I’ll be shooting a 1/8 twist 20″ barrel. My brother and I have 4 different powders; varget, benchmark, IMR 4198, and another. So hopefully between them I can find a straight shooter with the 50gr Zmax bullets. I think the hard part will be finding 4#s of powder once I find one that agrees with the other variables. I’m not in a huge hurry right now, but in three weeks when the gun and brass come in I’ll be getting more into panic mode to get 1000 rounds loaded before the dog shooting trip.Brushy19ParticipantMarch 2, 2014 at 2:59 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantMarch 2, 2014 at 1:53 amPost count: 633
I’ll have to check out the place in Mason City. Any one else have ideas on where to check for powder? I’ve got brass, primers, 50gr Z-Max bullets, but can’t find powder anywhere. Looking for Varget, H322, H335 or something similar and will need around 4#s. I was in DSM this past weekend and didn’t see much. All the stores still of course had all their empty displays out, but not much in stock.Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 20, 2014 at 2:51 pmPost count: 633
Thanks guys, I’ll have to get down to DSM and see what I can find rather than pay the Hazmat fees. I just got a new AR for P-Doggin and Yotes so I’m not sure yet what I’m going to need for powder or bullets. I’ll likely keep shooting different combinations until I can get around .5MOA then go from there with the powder/bullets.Brushy19ParticipantDecember 21, 2013 at 7:02 amPost count: 633

My brother in law use to take 4-5 beef there each year. The last year he did I got a 1/4 of one of them. I was picking up my 1/4 and the guy in front of me got a 1/4 as well, but from someone else’s beef. After he got his boxes he asked if there was another, they said no. He told them he thought it was light. I then got mine and thought the same thing. After everyone got their beef from the locker, we all weighed it and the 1/4s were around 20#s short and halfs were 40-50 short. They said they “do a lot of trimming.” That may be true, but come on! Since then we have not been back and likely will never.
This is only my experience since you asked. On the upside they do have a great product, but the service seems to be subpar. I would suggest Holstein or West Bend Lockers. My $.02.Brushy19ParticipantDecember 5, 2013 at 3:31 amPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantJune 10, 2013 at 2:00 amPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantMarch 8, 2013 at 10:08 pmPost count: 633

Is it even worth going after them, or should I wait until ice out and hit some lakes?
Depends on what you mean by “worth it.” This definitely is not your best time of year to catch one, but fishing is always better than sitting on the couch, so I’d say yes it is worth it. Throw a pole out with live shad, chub or gill on it, set your clicker, and start throwing a jigging pole for Walleyes. You’ll at least have a shot at FlatHead and a really good shot for the fish that are more active this time of year. You’ll have better luck in Spring-Fall, so don’t get burnt out if you don’t score as they’re not necessarily an abundant fish, but the best tasting and most fun to catch IMO.Brushy19ParticipantMarch 2, 2013 at 6:29 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 25, 2013 at 1:05 amPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 18, 2013 at 10:39 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 14, 2013 at 4:19 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 14, 2013 at 3:16 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 14, 2013 at 1:10 pmPost count: 633Brushy19ParticipantFebruary 9, 2013 at 5:46 pmPost count: 633

Shall Issue is not perfect.
My wife’s uncle recently acquired a permit and the entire family is worried. He has diagnosed mental issues and is delusional. I called the Sheriff in his county and raised my concerns and the Sheriff told me that unless he was involuntarily committed, his hands were tied. This is not ideal.
Ideal? No, but I’m assuming your wife’s uncle can purchase a long gun anywhere and would have to wait 3 days for a handgun? What is the difference of killing people when you have a permit or killing them when you don’t have a permit? Nothing, it’s still illegal and it will still happen. The concern shouldn’t be that he has the legal papers to carry a weapon, it should be that he is legal to purchase a weapon with or without those papers.
