    You can also do it on line on the DNR site.  They will mail it to you…..mine was pretty quick too.

    Thanks….much appreciated.  I’m a few miles from there, but definitely within reach.  Cool!

    I hadn’t heard about the one on Hgwy 1; even further north.

    Might have to try the caller.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback.

    jrnbronc, I’m curious about the Reservoir area, as I am pretty close to Mehaffey Bridge.  Any chance you could give me an idea of where he is around the Res.?  PM me if you’d prefer not posting.

     

    I’ve been thinking about trying the caller around here.  I’ve shot a couple of Bobcats the last 3 years, but they were in southern Iowa.  Be cool to see some and possibly bag one close to home.  I inquired because it seems the terrain around here should be very good for Bobcats.  But no doubt, they are very sneaky; would be interesting to know how many have seen me that I never saw.  Their coats blend right in and make it difficult to see them……..especially since they typically sit so still and watch patiently before moving in.

    in reply to: Boat cover #2950118

    Hey Olefart, do you still make boat covers?  I’m in need of one for a 1998 17.5 ft Lund Pro-V SE, which only has a console over the drivers side.  As you suggested, I have gone through several covers over the last 20 years; and other than the original cover I got with the boat new, they last 3 years at best.  Maybe it’s time to try a good one, like you say.

     

    Ballpark…….about how much would a cover cost for my boat?  Thanks

    Cheers!

    We went to Erie last May for the first time; 6 guys. We used Coe Vanna and were pleased enough to go back again this May and use them again. http://www.coevannacharters.com/
    Not a lot of pizzaz on their website, but good guys and know how to catch fish. As a bonus, they have accomodations also, if they aren’t filled up.

    in reply to: Sheds?? #1557047

    Did a little shed hunting the past few days and found a few. Also predator hunted from blinds, so saw a fair number of deer…………I’d guess about half are shed bucks now. They are dropping, but by no means completed yet. Good luck searching.

    Good Luck to everyone going out. The weather change could make it interesting.

    Bump….I am also new to predator hunting and appreciate any and all info and advice on the subject; it’s sure not as simple as taking a caller out and slay them. They are tough.
    Bring on the advice and tips……can never learn too much.

    What would be some of the basics of trying to get a Red Fox? I’d really like to get one that is in my area and had pups last year. Any magic?
    Thanks

    Seems to be a common problem with Buddy heaters……..a similar experience with the next size down.
    Be curious to find out the reason and the fix, if someone knows.

    As expected. not simple and a slam dunk. Surely appreciate all the feedback, suggestions, and help though. My issue with building is that I am dumb enough on the topic that I just don’t know what the right questions are and what the key components are that make a dramatic difference. Even things like the suggestion on open sights at an angle…….would have never thought of that. And the real problem is when you go to buy a complete gun, do you really get unbiased advice? Selling more guns is usually what pays folks, so that’s what they focus on; and cannot blame anyone for that……..the kids needs shoes. It’s just the way it is.

    Guess I have to ask……….is there someone that has built several that maybe has a darn good one that they would want to part with that would be fitting for a newbie like me? Maybe if you had the chance to build another better one, you would be happier? If so, maybe selling one good one would allow you to go to the next level? Just a thought. Like I said, I’m a neophyte at this, so am more than open to experts advice and opinions. And not dead set on anything at this point.
    Thanks
