    I took my course there about 4 years ago. Trapping is like Christmas morning every time you go out.

    The Primos trigger sticks are great, I use the tripod version for many situations. 
    Ive seen many students at the classes using mono pod type sticks with good success, however they require a bit more steadying of the crossbow to shoot accurately, it takes some getting used to as they can move in all directions as opposed to the tripod style.

    I agree with bushden. The raccoon with that color phase looks like it is something I would not want to encounter in the dark on my way to my deer stand.

    ratherbhunting got a reaction from Lunatic in HVAC help needed..   
    My friend does all my and my aunt's HVAC, he only charges me for parts and never anything for labor, he tells me he likes the older units and does not like to change them out for no reason, but he said with the older unit repairs you chase the problem many times ( fixing a leak just for another leak to pop up somewhere else. Remember all of your lines are 30 years old and they do wear out over time) and after fixing the repair multiple times you spend more money on repairs than a new unit will cost and then you buy a new unit anyway. It sucks but bite the bullet and take the offer from slayer1962 or call someone else.

    ratherbhunting got a reaction from james7 in Lost or broken fishing rods & reels   
    I saw a post from flukebelly where he said he had "the pleasure of watching a $400 set up sink into the deep after missing my rod holder behind me ," . It got me thinking who else has lost or broke a rod while fishing or in transit to or from fishing. 
      About ten years ago I took a friend of mine and his son who are both experienced at fishing on my boat to go fluke fishing. While we were out fishing my friend said to me that he really liked my one setup, (it was a Shimano Torium  TO 30 on a Cabela's rod and it was somewhere around $300 for the set up) my reply to him was it was my favorite combination out of all my rods and reels.  A couple of drifts later I went into the cabin to grab something and I hear my friend yell my name and he said "your rod" I thought it had a fish on so I told him to reel it in, he said "no, your rod" so I came out of the cabin and he was standing there pointing into the water and told me he leaned the rod on the gunnel and it went over, and he said we can get it, I said it is gone, we were in about 25 feet of water and with wind and tide we would never find it. 
     About 3 years ago I took an inexperienced friend and his two young children fishing on my pontoon boat and when we were docking he offered to help and I told him to just stay out of the way and I would take care of everything, when he jumped up to "help" when he tripped on his own two feet and when he fell he broke one of my rods.
     I took another friend fishing when he had one of my rods and was bending the tip with his hand and saying he liked the action on it, I told him not to bend the rod like that or he would brake it when he replied you can't brake a rod like that watch and as he was bending it he snapped the tip on it. 
    And one more friend broke my rod in a car door. . . .  . . . . . I think I need new friends
