To be fair the post says "DNR says no cats in MN" which is not true. Their position is that they have no evidence of a breeding population of cats in MN. Which also doesn't mean it's not possible for a litter to be born in Minnesota. So...you know, put the pitchforks away... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/mammals/cougar/index.html

There were still people duck hunting by doe island on Saturday. Few shots, but they definitely were not deer shots. I drove along the north shore Sunday on my way home and there were piles of ice being blown up by the wind. Then toward Garrison there wasn't much for shore ice and a flock of what looked like blackducks sitting just off a small floating ice sheet. The water is cold, but its just been so windy. I don't think it will take more than a day to lock up when it can rest.

Sunday there was a guy fishing about 500 yards off the park access on Andrew.... That lake was pretty much wide open the weekend before and the weather wasnt THAT cold. Not hearing any accident reports, I assume he left safely. No idea if he caught anything.

It didn't look to me like the bears were that good overall. I think Cousins had some trouble with the cold because he was pretty erratic and he usually isn't that bad, so advantage bears on weather playing a role. Also advantage bears that the game was flexed to prime time. The Vikings are always pretty much awful in prime time. So yay we have a couple more coming up.

What irritates me, is other than the Buffalo game, I feel like we've had a legit shot at winning in all of the losses, and unlike last year, they never turn the heat up. The most frustrating was the saints game, because it looks like they were all too comfortable turning that into a moral victory when they could have actually had a victory. Almost the same with the Rams, they had a chance. I don't feel like it's all Cousins fault for that, but he does not strike me as a guy you would pick for a 2 minute drill if you had 5 choices of current NFL QBs.

Last observation and then I'll quit, we have pretty successfully game planned against known scrambling QBs. Including Rodgers who I think is the most dangerous because he's the most accurate, followed by Wilson, Newton etc.. To me, Trubisky looks like a really talented runner, and our game plan did not account for him whatsoever. They had to have watched tape on his moves and tendencies, so how we fell so short in that realm I dont know, but I was waiting for him to bust a 50 yard touchdown, especially in the first half.

Overall, I'd like to see some fire from our team, they have fallen short on that all year it seems like, especially when they make a mistake early. Anyway, more prime time coming up. Hope we don't s*** the bed in those games too or it's over.

I just have to make a snarky comment about Sioux2211's post about Vex going through your unit 20 years from now - that's because the technology they use will still be the same Lol. Sorry. I used to have a SI-Tex FL-5 three color unit. It was the predecessor to the Fl-8 before Hondex and then Vexilar bought the company. I don't remember, but remarkably the only thing vexliar has changed is the price which goes up every year despite the minimal investment in R&D.... Ok I'm done now. That all said, the FL-5 still works and my brother has it now. It has been in operation for over 30 years and has not needed repair.

Onto Humminbird. I'm probably not even invited here because I have the Ice-45. Similar to 55 but without the extra colors. I have owned it since 2011, and I have not had any problems with it whatsoever. I like the dual transducer, the big screen, the digital depth etc. I've used all three of the flasher brands, they all have positives and negatives. I am confident that you won't be disappointed no matter which one you get.

I hunted for about an hour on opening day evening and got my doe. It's the second year my parents lake acreage is in a hunter's choice zone in 277 and therefore the second year I have decided to hunt and shoot a deer.

Friday morning, Saturday morning, and Sunday morning were all just awful for waterfowl hunting so I was very thankful to harvest a healthy deer. Our migration is going to happen in about 1 or 2 days between tomorrow and Wednesday unfortunately. Very cold temps coming.

Last year I shot a buck on opening day evening and had the best two weeks of waterfowling I can remember. Then the third weekend I hunted deer in the north zone as the lakes were frozen and my father in law is in a managed area. I ended up with a small doe that third weekend. So hopefully this year I can repeat at least the deer part of it and harvest another animal as I'm sure my waterfowling days in 2018 are quite numbered.

Most websites are updated only as recent as 2015. As far as I know, MNGEO which is what most state and local governments have access to (outside of Farm Service) only have 2015 as well. Your best bet might be to look at your County GIS information if they have a web application. Many counties have a County GIS web application with parcel data that you can access straight from the web. If their own IT manages the site, they might not have updated information either, but if they contract it to a 3rd party consultant chances are they have more recent imagery. Could be some hunting/fishing apps that have updated imagery but I know navionics is old. You might just have to wait it out, or see if the local farm service agency can print an updated map for you.

Well I got er done. Actually, it's a lot easier than I thought it would be. The dryer trick was key though, making sure the material is pliable so it can be stretched to contour with the seat. I used 3M 77 spray adhesive because it says it can be used on foam. The general purpose 45 stuff seemed to be for more crafting type of work even though that's what they used in the one video I watched. It maybe doesn't really matter, as the glue just helps keep it from sliding as you stretch it. Hopefully the pics work. Thanks for the advice guys!

Lol, that's a good question, but it would take a few hours really to equal $100 worth of value. It was only like $8 for the vinyl on amazon and I have the staples and stapler already. I think I'm game to try it. I checked out some youtubes like you mentioned and it doesn't look that complicated. They did exactly the same thing with the vinyl, threw it in the dryer for a bit to get it softened up and spray glued the foam. I'll give it a whirl, if it works out great, if not, I'm not out much. Thanks!

Recovering a 4-wheeler seat

Ok, so I had a chunk of black plastex vinyl delivered today. The plan is to recover my 4-wheeler seat. The current one isn't actually in that bad of shape, but there are two tears that are very old right at the front corners by the fuel tank and have the white plastic showing, and one old tear in the middle where the foam is showing. The current vinyl covering is fastened by staples. A crapload of staples. So if anyone has done this before, is it just as simple as ripping the old cover off and stapling a new one on? Or would it be better to just leave the old one on and 3M spray glue the whole thing and stretch the new one over it? It seemed like a really simple idea at first and now I'm second guessing everything I thought I was going to do. Please help me clear my mental block! lol. Really though any advice appreciated.

it's a 2004 arctic cat 400 for reference I guess.
