    The traveling gun sprinklers you mentioned earlier aren't very common out here, but I do have some first hand experience with a Kifco model. They're not exactly problem free and you have to babysit them sometimes, but it might be best for your situation... I envision the prairie dogs destroying a sub-surface drip field. I don't mind sharing what I know about them if it would help you any. Just let me know.

    Turkey in 27

    Glad that someone had some success in unit 1. It was a struggle for me this year too, not very vocal and found some in unusual spots. This was the first time I've ever chased turkeys in the cedar/ juniper country in unit 1. Would never had guessed that they would be in that country had they not been crossing the road in front of me. Also a bit curious where they roost at night with those short trees. All the roost trees I've found are usually big ponderosas.

    Turkey choke recommendations for youth 870

    My experience has been that you have to experiment with a few different loads in your gun and whatever choke tube you want to run. Some combinations work great and others not so much. My personal combination is an Indian Creek choke with Winchester longbeard XR loads, (but that's in a 12ga mag). Best of luck.

    Does it have a fire rating, or is it just a cabinet style safe?

    Just bought a Traeger and really?

    Are you getting any error codes on the temp controller display? Mine gave me some issues with shutting off and a LER code on the display. Ended up having to open the cone shaped cover on the chimney to get more air flow through the unit and that seemed to solve that issue. They're great when they work, but frustrating as heck when they don't. Good luck

    Chest Holster Questions

    Diamond D is another brand to take a look at. I like mine.

    My 1st Wyoming antelope

    Congratulations and nice write up. Very cool that you were able to get to share it with your son. Tell us a little more about the handgun you used. Contender?

    Surface Planers

    Feed rollers are going to be tough to find, or at least a used one that's in better condition than the current one. Best of luck in your search.

    Surface Planers

    That Rockwell in the picture looks to be built like a tank! Ebay is probably your best chance for finding used parts. I've had to go that route on some older machines I have that no longer have parts available. What's wrong with the Rockwell you have? I have a Dewalt 12.5" that I've been happy with. It's small and you can't really "hog out" material, but it's been problem free aside from changing knives.

    Marinades and brats?

    Not a marinade, but I like to simmer brats in beer with onion, garlic, red pepper, and some salt and then finish them off on the grill. I think it gives them some extra flavor.

    Best re saw band saw?

    If going the bandsaw route, be sure it has a high enough horsepower motor to do what you want, especially since you mentioned resawing oak. Resaw blades generally have large teeth to hog out a lot of material (avg 3 teeth per inch), so you'll need some decent power behind it. Since it sounds like this is for occasional use, I'd be looking at no less than a 1hp motor and a 2hp being even better. As for using pallet wood a cheap metal detector wand will pay for itself... nothing dulls a bandsaw blade quicker than metal. Hope that helps.

    Looking for a mechanic in the Valley

    This is very true and especially if the engine has AFM/ DOD on it. Mine does not have that thankfully, but my ticking issue is a little different. It will only start after it's at operating temp and has been idling for about 10-20 minutes. It starts as ticking and will get progressively worse turning into a knock within a few minutes. Increasing the throttle a little will make the noise go away temporarily, but it will return after a few minutes. The oil pressure also increases when you accelerate (and noise goes away), so we're leaning towards oil pressure issues. I'll also add Lindsay's to my list to call today. Thanks

    Looking for a mechanic in the Valley

    Thanks for the input guys, I'll give the aforementioned places a call.
  14. Hi all, I'm looking for a good mechanic to do some engine work on a Chevy 6.0L gasser. Just wanted to see if there were any CWT members that do this sort of work, or if there's anyone in the valley that could be recommended. Engine's making some tapping/ knocking noise when at operating temps and idling for extended times (~10-20 min.). The best guess so far is that there could be some bad lifters and/or possibly an oil pump issue. Chevy dealer recommended replacing the entire engine (their typical protocol), but I'm not sure that I'm ready to invest that kind of money yet. The engine only has 95K on it, so I have to think there's still some life left in it. Located in Maricopa, so would like to find someone in the valley. Thx

    Youth turkey hunt - update and pics

    Any good recipes that you guys have tried for the turkey legs? For turkey legs and thighs I like the Meateater recipe for carnitas. It takes some time to make them, but they've turned out great the 2 times I've tried it. Here's the link Beer and Citrus-Braised Wild Game Carnitas Street Tacos | MeatEater Cook (themeateater.com) Big congrats to your son too.
