    in reply to: Mount VS Replica #1584003

    I have both skin/scale & replica and I will never do another skin mount again. They are all quality mounts but the replica’s age and look better after time. Just make sure you use a quality taxidermist which ever one you decide. The saying does apply here and that is you get what you pay for. Good luck.

    Great read. And yes I teared up. I had a very similar experience with Amstel my German Shorthair. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m also a fan of walleycentral.com for information on Canada Lodges.

    I have been going to Crow Rock Lodge the last 9-10 years but there are many places to go that will fit your needs.

    in reply to: Cab Corner Rust #1591092

    I have a 08 Ford Crew Cab and was also told to do a repair correctly you need take out the back set and lay back the carpet. Another body shop I talked to did not want to do this type of repair. They do not want to deal with rust issues because they always come back in the end. Just like to bolt on new parts and then paint.

    Jburton, in the past introducing a new species has had adverse affects. Here are some examples just off the top of my head, pythons in Florida Everglade’s, asian carp in our rivers , aquarium oscar’s in southern U.S. , kudzu plant, zebra mussels, killer bees, multiflora rose in south east Iowa, milfoil, rusty crawfish in Leech Lake and Lake of The Woods, nutria, kane toads, wild boars, goldfish the list goes on and on… May seem logical and fun but there is always a consequence. Also note that some of these were introduced on purpose and had negative effects. Just ask any turkey hunter what they think of multiflora rose that the DNR introduced.

    I fish LOTW’s and Leech Lake into October for musky’s and I mainly just throw bucktails/cowgirls and larger stick baits. I don’t throw much BIG rubber since that wears me out quicker. Location and timing is more important than colors but I do throw alot of black. If there is any green vegetation I would work it. Rocks and vegetation is even better.
    As far as walleyes, perch and panfish that’s just bait. Kidding aside, I like the jigging and lindy rigs but that’s fits my style and equipment that I own better.
    That time of the year I just go bigger baits for all species weather it’s a lure or live bait.
    A good rain suit can make or break a trip that time of year.
    Let us know how it turns out.

    Good luck, Larbo

    Just be aware of your bowstring so it does not catch the suit when you release your arrow… Just practice in your G-suit to prevent any problems… I learned the hard way…

    I have seen a few. Just need time and continued stockings. I would call it a fish of 10,000 cast’s on Big Creek.

    P.S. Good luck Team Gurkha!

    in reply to: New coonhound #1624312

    I’m guessing he/she will start tracking everything his nose comes into contact with. I would also bet that the coonhound will run off with the first bird you shoot and eat it.

    I agree with the prior post just get a couple of lures and learn how to use them. I have spent way to much money on lures they are like jewelry for men. Keep your hooks sharp. Learn how to use your electronic’s and make sure you have fun even on the no fish days. Iowa is a tough state to learn how to musky fish so stay positive.

    They have worked for me in the past. I put mine up early to let the deer get use to them. I did have a problem 1 year that a skunk would use it on rainy days so give it a look before ya enter.

    in reply to: Hog Hunts #1633893

    I agree with everything Daver says. I have been a couple of times in the spring and combined it with a turkey hunt. I would also add that we now shoot the smaller hogs because they taste better and fit in a cooler if do not quarter them. Owner of one of the ranches we hunted at wanted us to kill every hog we saw no matter how big or small and did not charge us for a hunt/trespass fee for hogs only.

    It’s been awhile since I fished there but I would fish Clear Lake at dusk and dawn times before the boat traffic picks up if you can. I also fished boat docks that are close to deep water just like I would for bass just try not to hit/snag any boats or docks. Many lakehouse owners plant brush or structure around there docks to attract fish. Muskies will come along ways to hit a bait so pay attention. A Good topo map always helps and is a good place to start. Topo map will show the humps, inside and outside underwater points and structure. I also do not recomemend that you musky fish if water temp is 80 degrees or above.
