    I hear what you are saying.  Just like fox and may supplement their food a little.  I do NOT what them to lose their wild – they need to stay that way.

    Some people have soaked the pistons etc in diesel fuel.  Dot this over a period of time and like previous poster try to manually work things free.  Talked to motorcycle guys and have been told that this will eventually work (like a possibly LONG time).  If only sitting for couple years probably will not take much to free up.   Once loose try to get all the diesel fuel out of motor.  Wish you luck!

    Last flooring I used was the vinyl type but had little nubbins all over it and was NOT slick.  I have used outdoor carpet with excellent results in the past.

    What I have seen is that Public Land will have public access.  But you might need to walk a couple miles to get to the spot you want to get to.  OK if you are hunting squirrels or other small game.  NOT FUN if you shoot a deer and need to get it out.  Mile or 2 of rough terrain is NOT FUN!  I have toyed with the idea of boning deer out on the spot and only taking the meat out.  Not sure if this is even legal in Iowa.  Also a quality sled will make things a LOT easier.  Fix a way to tie deer in the sled so they do not fall out when dragged over downed trees etc.  Seen a few kids sleds yrs ago that worked well for others.  Now they have sleds specifically designed to pull deer out for not much $.

    Good to know.  I have just hung rack attached to skull in a tree at least over Winter until warm weather and then saved it.  My son has done the coloring thing and it works well, just need to practice on couple low value antlers.

    If you have the time the longer season might be better.  You can spend more time actually hunting deer.  When I was young I spent most of a Fall & early Winter hunting deer.  Carried a 22 to shoot squirrels etc with but I was trying to become a better deer hunter.  This helped me a lot.  If you are new the longer season will shorten your learning curve.  I hunt the 1st season at an area 130 miles away.  I now tend to hunt the hunters which means I try to learn how the surrounding hunters hunt and I hunt where the chance of them unknowingly pushing deer to me is better.

    How will they be able to commercially fish the Mississippi River? Or would it only be on certain bodies of water?

    Wouldn’t a variable speed trolling motor be slow enough (like 1mph) and I was told electric trolling motors will normally max out speed at 4mph.

    If you are set on a gas motor may want to look at an old 3hp Johnson. It will only have forward gear – no neutral or reverse. It will be started in gear! I use mine on a good sized canoe and like that it only weighs 32#, which is less than the battery would weigh. Not an ideal setup, but light weight. Moves my canoe around 6mph. Most trolling motors max out around 5mph.

    I have used both Dacron and black electricians tape. Either works fine for me. I have braid that is 20 yrs old I still have on. I try to have 100yds of braid and than and fluorocarbon. I run 20# most of the time which is still smaller than the 6-8# mono I put on. But when I snag it is a LOT easier to just break off 30′ of line! That is my normal leader length. I know it should be 18-30 inches. This way I can retie a LOT.

    I went from a manual camera to an automatic. I got a Nikon 510 (I think) which has a 40+ zoom built right into it. It is a LOT lighter than carrying extra lens around. It should not do as good of picture taking as before mentioned cameras, but for me it is much easier to carry and use. Cost is around 3-400 if I remember correctly. Also Canon has a very similar camera which is probably equal in quality. I just did not like the bulk, extra weight and the cost.

    Put a rifle scabbard on the Mule and hope coyotes hold up 200 + yds out! Don’t know how well that might work. See the TV guys packing both a rifle & shotgun when they walk in to set up.

    Please correct me if wrong. If you buy a License right now for 2018 as I understand it will be good for all of 2018 plus 1st 10 days of 2019? Normally I just buy a combo (fishing & hunting) one around now and never worry about it.

    I do a Mississippi Pool 9 fishing report search and find lots of info there. There are at least 3 Good Guides who routinely post info along with a bunch of regular fisherman who post on it. Plus you get fishing info all yr long for that area. Pool 9 is Lansing/De Soto area.

    Yes it is pneumonia. As long as the rest of the meat looks & smells OK I would use it.

    Shot a buck that had been shot with a front leg broke 1 1/2 hours earlier and he smelled not good. What does everyone else do with something like this?? I can probably use meat thru Jerky, but not sure about anything else.

    Thanks,

    I have a brother with a 7″ fillet knife blade that a Chicago Cop gave him a bunch of grief about. He carried the knife in his semi to cut meat cheese etc up with. I don’t know if I have more than 1 fillet knife with less than 5″ length. Are we sure that a small hand axe, hatchet is 100% legal? Know it sounds ridiculous!! And yes I also carry a 7″ blade fillet knife with me when on a trip.

    Thanks for everyone’s thoughts!

    I have used 400 denier chaps in the past and they have worked very well for a little extra warmth and busting brush. Than my son liberated them from me and ran them into the ground.

    Never really thought of waterproofing pant with homemade brew – good idea. Have used Scotchguard in past and been reasonably happy with it. It does easily wash out.

    Used a LOT of mink oil on my farm boots which did make mine water proof and extend their life, plus all the manure I waded thru with them.

    One last note. I use the fleece wader pants as my long johns of choice. I seem to never get cold with them. Actually use them a lot more while not underneath my chest waders. Super light, quick drying, strap goes under my foot so they cannot ride up my leg.
