    Forum Idea for Spammers

    I received an similar email that included seven other members that I did not recognize. Logged in and didn't find anything out of order. Looked up the name ( Elisio ) that sent the message and found no results. Do admins want a copy of that email note?

    Lk Shasta Anyone?

    I heard the MT Shasta miners of yesteryear had luck with the old Dupont Spinners on that lake. I am unsure of the legality and the modern practice may even be frowned upon (thanks a lot binladen). https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=DuPont fishing lure In all seriousness, it looks like a great spot. Check out the fishing report: https://www.jeffgoodwinfishing.com/shasta-lake-fishing

    And by looking at that one side, it is hard to imagine the other ear isn't messed up too.

    Backhoe question??? Need some help thx

    If I were you my first stop would be to a local welding/fabrication shop in your area to see what they'd charge me to make and weld up a new ear. Or Give Empire Cat a call in the am. Or Check out this site. It tells you the measurements you need to concern yourself with. https://rhinox-group.com/blogs/news/which-bucket-fits-my-digger-are-digger-buckets-universal Hope that helps Best of luck to your friend.

    Lk Tahoe Anyone?

    Gold spinners were the ticket in the 80’s but I was a kid and had to wade in the cold/clear water while on a family vacation with no boat. My father in law slays them consistently on high mountain lakes with flys on a spinning rod with a clear weighted bobber and six foot of leader. I’m really good at fishing, catching is another story unfortunately. My brother reminds me that lures are primarily designed to catch fishermen first and foremost. Sounds like a fun trip, enjoy!

    pack equipment for mules

    I bought my decker from https://packsaddleshop.com years ago. Rich is a pretty helpful guy and the leather he uses is top notch. I ordered modified bronze arches on a Ray Holes tree back before he regularly offered them. also try http://www.outfitterspackstation.com/index.html Fruitland Idaho. Wade is a super guy I met on a charity trail ride years ago. I don’t have any experience with those form fitting pack saddle trees but he is a believer and I trust him. and there is always Chris at Cowboy Corner in phx he occasionally has panniers although he sends most of his pack gear to his Dad’s (Doug) store at their Prescott location. Those Iron Cloth (aka Bear Cloth) panniers are real nice High Country Plactics Caldwell, Idaho makes a good hard pannier and inserts for your soft ones. They have lots of distributors around.

    Huntin' Jokes

    A friend of mine has 2 tickets to the Super Bowl in Tampa, both box seats. He paid $21,500 each. It comes with a ride to and from the airport, lunch, dinner, and a $400 bar tab. Also, backstage pass to the winner’s locker room. He didn’t realize when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you’re interested, he’s looking for someone to take his place. It’s at St Paul’s Church in Orlando at 3 pm. The bride’s name is Ashley. She’s 5’4”, about 115 lbs, and a good cook, too. She loves to fish and hunt. She’ll be the one in the white dress.

    Stolen Hunting Rig - Recovered!

    I could be friends with anybody that possesses the level of creativity and sense of humor needed to build a monstrosity like that. I love it, I really do! Hopefully who ever stole it returns it due to the frustration experienced when attempting to source the proper oil filter at autozone. ”year, make, model, sir?” I will keep an eye out while chasing smelly critters on my HAM hunt. If I find it, no reward necessary, maybe just let me drive it once. Best of luck

    Building a water catchment

    I appreciate your sentiments on wanting to provide for wildlife and I would suggest you coordinate with the department that manages those lands so you can do the most good. You could volunteer as part of a larger project. That catchment system is cool and it’s $900. Pretty sure you could buy a box of 22LR for that much dough right here on CWT. In all seriousness, aligning/coordinating your efforts with that of biologists that have taken into account the location of other water sources, animal movement patterns, etc. This would allow you to make the largest impact for the benefit of the wildlife. As a public land owner, like yourself, if no one here can dissuade you, I would ask that you monitor it and after the guzzler is no longer in service that you haul it back out and leave no trace. I agree with you that the person who drove through the temporary water puddle did not do the wildlife or landscape any favors but maybe instead run out there with a rake and smooth it out before it gets too dry. Worth stating: Also note any man made water source has to have an escape ramp of some type. I have pulled more that one dead squirrel from a stock tank and as you can imagine it does not help the water quality. Glad you are getting out there!

    RIP Ed Bruce

    That’s too bad. Chris LeDoux gives him a shoutout in his 1980 “hit” Where is the glory. Here is a link and the mention is at the 1 minute mark. Then years later Garth gives Chris a shoutout in his 1989 release of Much too young.
