    A good tip.. find a piece of wire the diameter of the hole of an egg sinker, or close to it but bigger than your line, and thread it though the sinker. Lay the sinker on a concrete floor and hit it as hard as you can with a hammer. Remove the wire and you now have a no-roll sinker at half the cost. We used to do it with 1/8oz eggs for creek fishing a long time ago.

    Genious. Thanks for that I’m gonna convert some of my regular bank sinkers this weekend.

    I appreciate the people on all hunting/fishing/trapping forums who do know wrong and are right there to call out EVERYONE. Just because you werent selected by the DNR to be a warden…stop pretending to be one.

    If you have a decent sized piece of land, it can pay off to just relax on the highest point with a good pair of binos. Turkeys are constantly milling around and cover quite a bit of ground throughout the day…sit long enough and your bound to find ’em.

    Ahh rumors are about all they were. I dont see much more money getting put into it for repairs though. I would imagine in 20 years or so most of the low head dams will be gone. Sad.

    Pattern your shotgun…I learned the hard way. I was shooting around a foot off with the factory sights (mossberg tact. turkey) and that particular load. Also…take a rangefinder and shoot some reference points as u would bow hunting. Depending on the lay of the land, that bird might look 35 and is really 47.

    If I remember right Randy Anderson said on one of his original calling videos that he gets asked a lot how many sets he sees yotes on. I think he said 3/10. Thats a dude that I would consider a pro and he’s hunting in some awesome areas. Don’t be like so many that watch these shows on tv and when they try it for themselves it’s not quite so exciting. I”ve went 30 plus stands in a row before and saw nothing at all. Then, just when you think you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing…BAM one almost runs you over after you howl twice. Moral is-keep trying.

    There seems to be a common theme-people are not filling their tags. I’ve noticed a lot of people complaining that there are far too many tags issued in Iowa lately. There was a recent post blaming the Gov. for this. I wonder how many people complaining about the deer numbers are the ones buying a half dozen tags/year?

    I have a 95 Johnson 30 I was getting no spark from either. It wasn’t until a while later I realized the kill button broke, and was pushed in a bit farther than normal. I grabbed it with a needle nose and pulled it out and it was all good. I know this probably isn’t a common cause of not having spark, but it never crossed my mind until I was already frustrated.

    Why would rough timber ground be closed? Nobody was maintaining it before so this shouldn’t affect anything. Besides, no federal employees will be around to write you a ticket. Hunt it.

    Kudos to Starbucks. That was a very well written letter and I don’t blame them one bit. If you are one of them adding them to your “boycott” list, I’m afraid you are part of the problem that turns the people on the fence toward the side of the antis. I’m very much pro gun and constantly carry concealed, but if you think walking around town and into stores with a rifle is helping your cause, I think you’re doing more harm than good.

    After moving to SD from IA, I discovered everyone is walleye and perch crazy here. I enjoy sitting on the lake, but while doing so I keep thinking about the Big Sioux River and my dream trip, the Red River for cats. I finally got a buddy converted to catfishing. And when they’re not biting I can at least drive around and catch the flying carp with my boat. Luckily, none of the lakes around here provide that kind of opportunity…yet.

    I know it sounds criminal, but it will be looked at as a civil matter and wouldn’t be prosecuted.
