    check into hiking down the grand canyon. YOu can camp at the bottom along the river. The Indians own this part of the grand canyon. It is very pretty with lots of blue lagoon tide pools and waterfalls. Not what you think of for the grand canyon. The also own lodge at the bottom. If your thinking about a room call ahead ====it fills up quickly. We hiked down and loved it. robbie.

    Wow, if you like white bass the Mississippi gets crazy runs behind the wing dams down around guttenberg and up North. The bass are huge. Several years ago we could not keep them off our hooks. It was non-stop action. Got so tired my arms were aching. Lost count of the fish and had to spend hours at the fish cleaning station. Good Eating too. robbie

    Go to vexilar’s website. You can buy the transducer for your boat. It comes with very good adhesive. Techy at vexilar told me experiment where you want to mount it. Once you use the adhesvie it will be permanently mounted. I think if you are familiar with how you vex works it is really handy for the water. Shows the entire water column and might actually be better that some other transducers that are on boats. I am trying to decide myself if I will just throw mine in the boat and use the float. Not sure how that would handl wave chop. Permanent mount then it is not affected. robbie

    P.s. You can call and talk to support at vexilar and they can help you out too. Good people and great products. robbie

    Are you camping? Are you talking about hotels? If your camping the Corps of Engineers has nice campgrounds around Truiman reservoir.

    Picked up my big Fish Award and the print was cool Musky in black and white. We walked around Friday night and met the vendors, salesman and saw all the neat stuff. Talked with Midwest Boats and have my small 2.3 hp honda motor ordered. Should push my sun Dolphin all day long. Excited to use this on small ponds and small lakes. Great show and the people are very friendly. Enjoyed the weekend and it has me thinking about spirng time crappies, rangefinders for elk and the sounds of summer camping. Bring it!

    forgot to mention we headed down to DesMoines for the play Chicago. Great musical. All that Jazz. Robbie

    Yeah, I have heard good things about the Vortex name. Think Nikon might not be all that great. Do like the iron clad warranty of Vortex. If it breaks they fix or replace no quesitons asked. I \

    I plan on going out West to hunt elk and want something that will be accurate and waterproof/ fogproof and that works out to at least 700 yards. robbie

    Yesterday I used the manual and put level on front limbs and level on top turret of scope. Got the scope mounted level on the crossbow. Now, just need decent weather to sight in at 10, 20 and 50 yards, then should be shooting 50 to 75 yards with very good accuracy.

    I am excited about the purchase. Was going to buy Matthews for years, but always put it off due to the cost. Kept telling myself my Jennings bow was working fine. Well, the Matthews is out the window and the Ravin should fit the bill nicely. Besides, by the time I would put quiver, drop away rest, arrows, etc. The cost would be cheaper with the Ravin. robbie

    in reply to: 8 hp motor #1555638

    The big question is how much money are you looking to spend. Lot of the motors are rated at 9.9. Will your boat only take 8hp rating or less?

    Bass Pro carries Mercury and knock off of suzilki?

    Are you looking for Honda motor. I think the Honda reputation is very good. I am thinking about very small 4 storke for my pond jumjper. But my boat is only rated for 3 hp. Have you checked on which shaft length to get? Swoome motors come in different length. robbie

    wilil say when you snag one and it runs up river, then back down river and all over the river just hang on cuz it;s a blast. If you land the bill, then it’s pictures and loads of fun.

    Better if you have a boat, but you need two guys in the boat minimum, cuz the operator will not be fishihng. Take turns. In the lake of the oaarks they troll I think, but in the des moines I do not think that is the method. Still cast and jerk the treble hook to snag.

    You can fish at night, but then its headlight like the coal miners use and it gets tricker. robbie

    Yep, made it to the classic and got a brand new Crossbow made by Ravin. Scheels had dropped the price 300.00 dollar on the R9, plus they threw in 6 extra bolts and free case. An additional 170.00 vlaue. JUST NEED THE STATE TO CHANGE THE REGS TO READ CAN HUNT ALL BOW SEASONS AND NOT JUST THE COLD JANUARY BLACKPOWDER SEASON. HAVE not had chance to sight in yet. But super excited my wife let me spend the money. Will be the last bow I ever buy.

    Was looking to see if Vortex had a rep at the classic, cuz wanted to see if they had any rebate coupons-NO LUCK.

    Would love to get Vortex ragnefinder. But would like to snag a little reduction in price, cuz they dont give them away.

    Anyhow, was nice classic and eating a Buzzard Billy’s was great too. Good food and the tall beers were only $4.00 dollars. GREAT DAY SPENDING MONEY ON GEAR! robbie
