    This is where I will leave my opinion, take it or leave it.

    Schools do not have security budgets.

    A teacher is paid by the government, yes. Forcing them to mandatory firearms training would cause an uproar. Teachers are not legally allowed to strike in the state of Iowa, but if enough felt the urge to walk away from their assignments they might, or at the encouragement of the Teachers Association. Then the Board of Educational Examiners would be forced to investigate each case as to whether or not that person should maintain their teaching license, this would take years to sort out. And in the mean time while the BOEE is trying to figure out who’s license to suspend or revoke schools would be forced to hire new teachers, who would also need a teaching license issued by the BOEE. Remember they are off investigating the cases of teachers who left, so there will be longer delay issuing licenses (currently it is 4-6 weeks). This would be a nightmare for school districts to attempt to implement mandatory firearms training.

    I would be all for local/state building codes for schools being updated to require certain entrance security measures (cameras, buzz in locks etc) Give school districts a time frame, mandate that local option sales tax be used for security measures to reach code before other building improvements are made. Does this happen over night? No but eventually it would lead to an increase in security without having to raise taxes, just using what is available first to meet new building codes.

    The notion of better entry and exit security is feasible, as long as the public agrees that their taxes would have to be increased to accommodate improvements. The state is talking about a 1.5% allowable growth for public schools…that doesn’t go too far.

    With budgets as tight as they are for public education (and getting tighter) these ideas would possibly deter tragedies in the future but school districts are not in the financial situations to implement them.

    I can only imagine the insurance nightmare that would come with arming teachers. There would be grievances from teachers opposed to firearms training

    I would look into epoxy fixes, save what you would pay a welder for your next boat, and fish it.

    I would put on a good winch to help load. A problem I have had going too big on trolling motor on a small boat. Is it didn’t have a low enough speed for trolling slow. That left me constantly turning it off and on.

    I have this problem on my 12′ boat. My 50lb thrust Minn Kota pushes it too fast even on the lowest setting. I have gotten used to having one hand on the controls at all times. On the other hand. It really pushes it at a good clip on the highest setting.

    I would want to make sure that there was nothing on the inside of the hull that would catch fire. Foam, wires, lines would all be things that would need to be inspected. I am guessing any shop would require it to be cleared to avoid a fire risk. You might think it is ok from the bottom, then it could smolder inside the hull for a while and engulf the whole boat. I would make sure the fuel tank is empty and purged, also remove the battery.

    Probably non-residents checking out all of the new properties they leased out from under good ol boys who felt entitled to hunt them for free…

    Save for whatever you want, don’t buy a cheaper version because it is cheaper. If you want a clays gun, buy a good one not a stoeger. Buy something the grandkids will eventually love!

    I see nothing but positives here. If someone thinks that they can get away with running dogs on deer, they are already probably not following the law.

    I had a CZ bokbwhite that I should have never gotten rid of. It was sweet. But I am not sure CZ produces it.

    Do you have a pic of your disc that you built? That sounds like something I would be interested in seeing!

    I just checked my computer for an original pic that I took of it, and can’t find it. Next time I’m out by it, I’ll take a pic and post it here for you TeamAsgrow. I found and bought a sturdy dual / tandem disk that was 6ish feet wide. Then I flipped the disk direction so that it could be pushed instead of pulled. Then I cut and welded what used to be the front 3pt hitch section to a quick attach plate. My machine is like 5 tons or better, so I can really put some pressure on the disk if I throttle down the loader arms. I’m always running into stuff when I drive in reverse, so I push it a lot more than I pull it in reverse. It does kick up dust right in front of me while I’m driving, and it makes me drive directly over top of the freshly churned soil, but the tracks only make like 8-lb per square inch for a footprint, so it doesn’t compact the soil much. It works well for what I use it for.

    What is kind of skid steer do you have?

    Hero shot pics can really make the most of angles. It is pretty easy to get a good angle in a pic and make the deer look WAAAAAAAY better than it really is! I helped my buddy with the buck he shot this year, really made it look a lot better than it was!

    Marabou jigs, plastic jigs, tipped jigs I would make sure I have all of plenty of those! 1/64th and 1/32nd seem to work best. I usually like 1/32nd jigs most of the time. 1/16th cast better and work better when needing to fish deeper.

    And a big gay vest…. 😀

    If I had feelings, that would have hurt them :mrgreen:

    Public. And ready to go in deep if that�s where I need to be. Good call on the extra socks. I�m kinda a freak of nature, cold doesn�t bother me. I hunted -40 deg In northern Quebec for caribou in mid 90�s and it was awesome. Maybe it�s mind over matter, I had browning arctic style boots and were brutal on feet and rubbed my ankles almost raw. Keep em coming

    What zone do you plan on hunting?

    Whatever you are utilizing you need to make sure that your feet aren’t sweating after a long walk in. I would pack a dry pair of socks if you plan to walk a long distance to hunt, once you got to your stand area you could put on a dry pair for your hunt. If you can walk long distances in your current boot you should be good.

    If and when I plan to hunt Late Muzzle loader again it will be done in an enclosed blind.

    What zone/area do you plan to hunt? Public ground?

    It wasnt even that bad. Just a little chewy and minerally tasting. I thought they were leading me on, then about half the group passed that same heart around and took bites so it wasn’t like they were trying to prank me!
