    It has what the article i read calls a “super” strain of e coli found in 3rd world countries.  So maybe this will help- who knows.

    While i wont dispute they have great eyes, i think turkeys are given too much credit with these new high dollar decoys. Im interested to hear if anyone has experienced better luck with these as well. Im not a blind/decoy guy- i am constantly on the move trying to find birds that are vocal or spot a strutter and work him. I have a couple cheapo decoys ill throw up when im feeling like takin a midday turkey nap and have seen them work.

    I just put marine sealant in the old holes as my transducer that came with the boat was drilled into the aluminum. Them i attached one of thosentrasducer mounting boards with screws dipped in the sealant and them ran a bead of sealant all the way around the board. Hasnt leaked a drop.

    On friday at 10 am i howled in three and we got one. Later that day hit another spot for 45 min and saw nothing. Packed it up and was walking out when 3-4 of them lit up about 1/4 mile away. There was some snow and a half moon and i could see through the scope so i sat back down and started talking to them. 15 minutes later i heard crunch crunch crunch 100 yards doenhill and caught s big male trying to go downwind- he did not make it there. I bet those dogs heard me for that entire hour and finally came in during the cover of darkness. When those three came in earlier it was very sunny and they walked about 3/4 mile in a corn field. To add to that, i was shocked how many times i lost those dogs walking in corn stalks. I dont understand these critters but i love em.

    The public lands in iowa must be jinxed. The waterfowl areas here Have tracks after every snow.. How long are you stayin on stand? I went out at dusk last night to a new spot that has quite a few dogs. The group howled back at me a couple times and at the 50 minute mark, it was grtting too dark to see. I stood up to go get the caller and saw one walking about 150 yards in front of me- then it vanished into the dark. Not sure the last time ive stayed that long, but i think ill start spending more time on stand.

    Went back home to nw iowa this weekend. All private ground and some may have not been hunted yet this year. Havent seen that many birds in 10-12 years. One flush seemed to block out the sun. Birds were holding tight this weekend.

    Dont feel like you have to drop 1300 bucks or more to get a good gun. I think a lot of people buy the name to keep up with their buddies.. I just bought a franchi affinity and love it- its what felt the best in the store after handling everything they had and it was half the price or even less than half of a lot of the autoloaders. If beretta feels the best get it. I opted for the 3 inch affinity vs the 3.5 intensity because of price. But, i shoot 3 inch steel at pheasants and not geese so not sure if 3.5’s are worth it.

    So at a 2 dollar avg if gas stays 2 bucks…. I avg 200 miles per days which is roughly 18 gallons of gas…. I only hafta avg 18 coon per day just to pay for gas! You really dont feel the wear and tear on the vehicle cuz that just comes in large chunks like tires, brakes ect.

    Donnie Williams north of Ogden can be very good for crappie. I haven’t lived in the area for a couple yrs and with the renovations I don’t know how the fishing is or has been recently. One year caught enough crappies for a buddies rehearsal dinner for his wedding, that was a waste because his now x turned out to be a whore. A few years back I fished a area that has lots of concrete on shore and into the water. Drive in the west main entrance, turn left to the bait shop, boat ramp follow the road and go straight through instead of heading to bait shop. Goes from blacktop to gravel, comes to a turn around. Park there and to the north is the area, kinda steep to get near the water. Sat there 1 week after ice out and crushed the crappie. A boat on this lake really helps too.

    Fishing spots aside….. The comment about the x made me laugh.

    A buddy of mine got permission on a lot of land by huron and took his brother and dad calling for tge weekend. Hunt was ruined by three new trucks doing 40 across the field they were in to run three dogs down close enough to shotgun them. They told him 26 trucks shot 73 yotes in one day. He saids there were truck tracks in every single field approach they passed. True sportsman, be careful.

    We have a springer/ lab mix that was the same. Lots of work is a 30′ leash really helped, still hes a bit hard headed outside though never goes far from the family.

    How do you like that labradinger ?? I have the opportunity to pick one out for free that’ll be weaned in a few weeks. Still debating
