  1. If so, what was your experience? Any horror stories? I am looking for a CA Ridgeline in a particular color scheme, they seem to have in stock. No luck at Bass or Sportsmans.

    Usery Park archery range open?

    Cool! Thank you.
  4. Wondering if the park/archery range is affected by the Covid panic-demic? We have a young hunter with a bull tag this year. Need to hone his skills.

    Favorite Elk Broadheads

    I too had a bad experience with Montecs...older model. I spent a lot of time sharpening them before the hunt, but could not get them to shave hair off the back of my hand. I hit a 5x5 bull behind the leg, low lung, above the heart. It poked out the opposite side center of lungs. It pushed back out as he ran. Not much blood, and no blood after 100 yards. We grid searched for a total of 14 hours before finding him the next afternoon...1/2 mile away! Both lungs were punched. It was the most disturbing, emotionally draining experience I've had in hunting. I've killed 3 cows and one bull previous with Thunderheads. All died within 50 yards. But they are hard to tune. I lean toward a good fixed blade head, but like the idea of an easy blood trail. I think a good hybrid may be the trick. I like the looks of the JEKYLL or HYDE. If I had a bull tag this year, I'd probably go that route.

    camp shower

    I bought the lower cost Zodi model. The heating unit sets on a 2-burner stove. The "D" battery pump barely pushed water up to 6 feet, so I modified it with a RV pump and marine battery...works great.

    GoldenDoodle pups- One Pup left!

    Yes, it has greatly reduced the shedding. She still sheds, but greatly reduced. We also buy dog food with no corn in it. Our first two goldens were allergic to the corn. We discovered this with the 2nd golden and it helped with the ear infections/stinky ears, leaking eyes, etc. Our 3rd golden, current dog, has been on Wilderness Athlete New Dog for most of her life (currently 3 years old). She swims a lot and has never had an ear infection. No stink, no leaking eyes, great teeth, beautiful coat. I recommended it to a family member with an old, nearly crippled dog. It made a big difference in just a couple weeks. Good nutrition makes a big difference.

    Is the advantage of the poodle crossbreed no shedding?....that's huge. Our golden is the same color as Dakota. She doesn't shed near as much as she did before giving her the WA New Dog supplement.

    Glassing chair for big dudes

    I am 61 years old and still prefer a pad on the ground. Key tip...you must have your legs slightly down hill or it will kill your back.

    Dodge Truck Owners

    My 2014 Ram 2500 Cummins has rear coil springs. It rides real nice for a big truck. I think that is the first year they put coils under it...or maybe 2013. The electronics are crazy in the newer trucks. Mine is a SLT with "luxury package", so upgraded cloth seats and trim. It's quite comfortable...even the back seat.

    What is the deck size, inside the railing? Not sure what is considered a smaller quad. Thanks

    Does this affect the 3rd party places? There's one next to Sportsman's.

    Pool Repair (Pebble Tec)

    That's pebble tech? Looks like quartz plaster in the picture. Looks like a rebar/rust stain to me. I fixed mine myself, when it was regular plaster, before it was resurfaced. Just cut around it with an angle grinder, chip out some plaster around the rebar, cut the rebar off below the surface, and patch it. Not sure what kind of patch kit they have for pebble tech.
