Did it for about 5 years.
If you are wanting does it is not bad.
Can be hard to pass on big bucks as they go by.
I have been busted by walkers, some people looking for a make out spot, dogs and homeless.
All kinds of things happen. Usually long lead time on getting in. Salyorville is good to get in on. More deer, easier to get on the roster, only thing you usually run into our there is people cutting wood.PaulBParticipantMarch 13, 2018 at 8:31 pmPost count: 1046
Father in law used to live near there. Good lake think with crappies. His best technique was to find structure at the thermocline and then set a hook just above that.
He always got big ones from that lake. Kind of miss going down and fishing with him.
Good lake to fish though. Be squeaky clean though as the DNR around there rewards tipsters.PaulBParticipantFebruary 15, 2018 at 2:52 amPost count: 1046PaulBParticipantFebruary 8, 2018 at 4:50 pmPost count: 1046
Dunno. using a dog to find a downed deer would be good. I know I have tracked some and never found them. Near as I can figure they just levitated away.
but using a dog would be a slipper slope as it would not be long before we have unscrupulous hunter using packs to chase them down.
I doubt it will make it out of committee.PaulBParticipantJanuary 28, 2018 at 11:40 pmPost count: 1046PaulBParticipantJanuary 28, 2018 at 11:36 pmPost count: 1046PaulBParticipantJanuary 28, 2018 at 1:58 amPost count: 1046
Handguns require a permit. But you do not need to record it.
Long guns and Shotguns require nothing.
If you are selling to some one out of state, any gun, it must go through an FFL
the only things not covered are Black Powder or Air Rifles, there are no rules covering them.
Some guys ask for permits on all guns and do bills of sale. but they are not required.
If you are an FFL then things change and they will know all the rules.PaulBParticipantJanuary 23, 2018 at 2:29 amPost count: 1046
Genetics coupled with good diet and a relatively stress free environment are the three keys to monsters.
I don’t think they gain many more points that what is in the rack they will group their 4 full year.
After year 5 they have the full size for the body and in the following years they will get the full effect of the rack.
Texas DNR did a multi year study of the growth and other things for whitetale Deer. You can google it and it makes intersting reading.
some good reading there.PaulBParticipantJanuary 18, 2018 at 2:26 pmPost count: 1046
Not something you can do on a shoe string.
the building you chose will have to some high dollar ventilation systems added to make it work. Not that the lead is as common as it was you have to handle air to that level of particulate.
I would head in to CrossRoad in Johnston and ask the owner what all he had to do to start. If you are in Newton that would not be a large ding on his wallet.
The two in DSM area are both FFL’s as well.
I would guess the budget to get going would be north of 100k, but that is a guess.PaulBParticipantJanuary 11, 2018 at 2:08 amPost count: 1046PaulBParticipantDecember 28, 2017 at 4:43 pmPost count: 1046
You must be from out of state. That does make scouting a little rougher.
How did you come to know of this ground? That along with some of your success should make a good story.
Just have to watch some of the guys on this forum can be rough on out of state hunters.
I don’t care as my group ususally has some from Vermont and Colorado along various years.
Do you plan on bow hunting or gun hunting the ground?PaulBParticipantDecember 27, 2017 at 9:56 pmPost count: 1046
Bushnell makes some good choices. I have one that will range to 1000 yard so it is handy in a lot of situations. I ususaly use it in stands or blinds and pick out range points so when the crttier shows up I can focus on shooting it.
You will like what ever you get I am sure.PaulBParticipantDecember 19, 2017 at 5:03 pmPost count: 1046
Sounds like the guide separated himself from his hand gun. Not what I would have done.
I am thinking anything you can use in one of those guide holsters, kind of a shoulder thing with a belt around the torso to hold the pistol close.
I know when we went hiking into the back country with the scouts we had bear spray and I had a 357 snubby in my back pack. I figure at the least I could poke it down the bears throat and cap off a couple
