    What’s up with that……losing pics & posts?  Admittedly, and probably like most users, I used to watch the posts on the old site.  It took SO long…..that I lost interest.  Guess maybe there are reasons that the forums are almost non-existent anymore?

     

    Was out on Coralville Reservoir last night, trying for some crappie and to see where we’re at spawn wise.  Didn’t catch a lot, but caught some nice ones……one 13.5″.  Caught a few little bucks too.  Main lake water temp was 57, and a couple cove were over 60 early evening.  The fish I did catch were closer to the bank…..all within about 6 ft of the bank.  Had one female and the rest males.  The nice one was a male.

     

    Guessing it is about time.  Cheers

    Sweet!  Good recap…….nothing like it, is there?

    Now you have a new turkey hunting partner; he is hooked I’m sure.

    Cheers!

    in reply to: Kimber 1911 #2946276

    I’ve got a Kimber 1911 .45 with the Crimson Trace lazer.  it is one sweet gun and is very comfortable to shoot and with very good accuracy.  I’d have to say my favorite handgun that I’ve ever had or shot.  Not cheap…….but sometimes the cost of quality is worth it, in my opinion.

     

    I too would agree with your friend that a .45 is a much better security handgun than the 9mm.  Yes, 9mm ammo is less expensive than .45.  If one already has a .45, then in my opinion a 9mm is a good one to have.  But if you have few handguns and are thinking of security as a top 3 reason for a handgun, the .45 is what I would get.  And if you can afford a Kimber and like quality………..I say go get yourself a  Kimber – you’ll love shooting it.  It’s a mans gun; shoot deer legally in Iowa during gun deer season; you can’t with a 9mm.

    Have fun.  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

    And I do have tools and can manage fairly well, but admittedly am a neophyte at piecing together one. Have not had one before, so not comfortable that I know all that I need to know.

    Price range…………I was thinking I could maybe get a pretty nice set up, including a decent scope, for around $800-$1,200. Sorry about that, I meant to include that initially.

    Thoughts on scopes would be appreciated too, Is a Vortex a good value? Thanks

    Have you, by chance, checked out Skull Hooker?
