    I think I would have to go the 44 Mag route due to availability and punch.  I’m also interested in the Big Boy  and think if I had any sense would get the .44 but want to get the .38 Spl/.357.  Reason being I have a couple .357 revolvers and a considertable amount of 38 Spl /357 ammo on hand

    Yes watch where others cross like over the sand bar.  I lived and worked in the park there when I was a young buck.  The water speeds up when it goes thru the narrows so doesn’t get as thick.

    I was surprised but a farm pond just outside of my town was 8-9″ today.  It did have snow on it and                  some had melted leaving slush and water over the ice though.

    Ev I never thought of it as a coydog but it may have been.  Very large coyote was caught in my beaver snare about 1 mile East and 2 1/2 North of State Center 3 years ago.  So also just South of the Heartland.  I referred to it as my wolf it was that large.  Of course as we both  know there was a pair of real wolf mix in the  neihborhood that the owner would let out to graze at times.

    Well used trails is a good start but that sounds like you might not  of  scouted them out yet. When to get set up,   I do it no later than 1 hour before I can shoot.  Also go ahead with the attractant why not.  I’ve never hunted public and have several places with two being I’m the only person allowed to hunt but the same should apply.  I also hunt only late muzzle loader so less people are out.  Hunting public could be a plus as if other hunters are out thy will stir up and keep the deer moving as long as your in position first.

    Be careful out there and good luck.

    That be it Sir.  I figured most would never know what it looks like.  Its pretty tattered but readable.  I always thought it was neet to come across one out on the  lake and go over and see who it was.  I  gave up on the picture business.

    It doesn’t give ones join date anymore but I think mine was 1/2004 and I believe you were before that.

    Sounds like you do have a butt load of them.  Good move with the dog proof traps and what I would of suggested.  If  you can’t have anyone chime in on assisting you go to U-Tube and theirs a ton of video’s.  Its pretty simple for coon and I’d give those little marsh mellows a try for bait as their kinda fond of them.   Theirs an  abundance of them everywhere as well as with the buyers consequently low prices and in fact a lot of buyers weren’t buying any unless they were 3X or larger.  So you may not have an outlet for any below that size.  So have fun and protect your property.  Welcome.

    You should of used the Pandemic to go fishing that’s no excuse.  I go about everyday by myself with the boat and don’t make contact with anyone.  That’s pretty much the way I prefer anyway.

    Had the same thing happen at Red Rock a couple years ago.  The  first one I thought was a  bonus then had four more.  It was OK by me but kinda of a surpriser.
