Garmin Montana 610 , I just bought one for dual purpose , on the 14 ft flat boat for some fresh water adventures and mostly on my ATV , loaded in a Topo 100K SD card and it works great ------ so I have two questions , my unit says use 25K for best results and Garmins's card is 100K , how does that work , I think they are refereeing to least 25K and 100K is better ???? --------------- and something called Base Camp , people have told me it is a program on your desk top which will manage tracks and way points , much like Map Source which I already have for an older Garmin and computer , I don't know if map Source could be interfaced with a newer Mac and a Montana , I would like the new Base Camp up and running and have it downloaded already but when I try to open it on the Mac the version is off of my operating system --------- are there other programs that would do the same as Base Camp where I wouldn't have to change operating systems versions
Captain Paul , I was given a Hummingbird Matrix 97-Fishing System , plugged it in and it powers up but doesn't seem to catch a position , got the owners manual on line and it really doesn't go into connecting it up as far as the bus bar on the back , in fact the bus bar isn't labeled what each socket is far , there are 4 spots , I figured out 2 of the 4 power and transducer, one may be weather overlay and the other a interphase , from what I have seen on the net this unit may need to have a separate GPS hooked to it for it to work ? Do you know anything about this unit
Looking for a side arm for no other reason than killing poisonous snakes , yesterday we killed 7 cotton mouths with sticks and a machette , and a 4 ft moccasin against a 18 inch machette is not my idea of a fair fight , it is so dry that when ever you find a water hole you find snakes -------- some brand of .22 Mag revolver that will shot rat shot loads is what I am thinking , also like the Judge .410/45 but they are pricey and shells are a bummer to carry --------- what's a good >22mag revolver without breaking the bank and the best brand of rat shot
My friend has a registered female Redbone Bloodhound , his dog is a hunter and will find them , he's looking for someone with a male with papers for stud services , 504/-427/-1201
I bought this 1974 Honda XL250 Motorsport pictured below and I am doing a restoration on it , I always want a Honda Fat Cat which was made in like 86-87 and this bike found me , I don't know anything about the big wheel conversion kit that is on it , it wasn't homemade , the old guy I got it from doesn't remember who the kit came from , says his son bought the bike brand new in 1974 and the kit was put on a couple of years after that , I have search the net for info and can't find another one like it or any mention of it ------------Anyone ever see one like this ?????
I have a lot of coyotes around the house , there are no animals that live on the ground any more , when I first moved over here I always seeing rabbits , possums , coons , armadillos, etc , etc and now there is nothing , a dead zone and now the coyotes are running the streets at night and from watching them on surveillance cameras they are hunting my Pomeranian , they come in the yard and track her movements thru the yard , I live in a rural area where it is ok to shot and have been picking them off , one a week , a see them 3 and 4 in a pack so they are thick and getting brave , so I was talking with a friend and he says that he heard someone pays a bounty for coyote ???? -------- Then my buddy tells me a rumor about an Asian group that he heard buys Raccoon penis for $350 a pound , I'd bet that ain't legal , says it take 12-14 coons to make a pound depending how well they are hung , wonder what they do with them , maybe grind them up and put them in a smoothie --------what is the world coming to ?
My buddy is about to buy a Epic boat from Blue Dot , it's either the 23 or 25 ft with a 300 on the back with a list of extras for $54,000 , he asked me what I thought and I have no experience with Epic , I asked around and have heard they have problems with the transom cracking up , Bent's says they dropped the line for that very problem so it must have happened a lot ---------any feed back on Epic would be appreachiated !!!!
.... I traded with a friend for some ATV parts and wound up with a GoDevil frame , old but good condition , took some measurements and couldn't find any motor that would fit the mounting pattern , called GoDevil with the mod and s/n and they told me it was a Yanmar diesel model which was old and rare , says I can use a Honda or such gas motor with a little fab work ---- has anyone ever had or ridden in a diesel powered Go Devil ------------think of filling the rack with styro-foam and I won't need a snorkel ----------- wonder if you tied a string to the spark plug wire and your belt loop would suffice for a engine shut down lanyard as it appears they didn't use one back then LOL
Found this print , the Doral pack is 4 inches , the track about 5 1/4 , not the best pic as it had just rained heavy , what's it look like ?
I am very disappointed in A+E's decision on Duck Dynasty ------ maybe A+E can come up with a new series called ' What happens at the camp , stays at the camp ' , I am pretty sure Hollywood has a long list of actors licking at the chops for the staring role

We ride 4 wheelers a lot on the trails around my house and monitor the tracks of whats going on , all summer we never seen but a few coyote tracks , the last two weeks the deer tracks start appearing in good numbers and assorted sizes , then there goes the neighborhood , coyotes gone wild , no doubt they follow the deer ---------- I missed a golden opportunity to take one or more out , I have cameras on the house facing the woods and Predator Alerts around the property and have learned that the coyotes don't like them flashing red lights , the lights don't work on bobcats ,dogs , coons or anything else I know of , I have never seen coyotes in my yard seen I put up the flashing led lights which I got because I had chickens till recently and the coyotes , bobcats and owls where in my yard like the drive thru at Mickey D's lunch time , last Thursday I was up around 3:00 watching TV and on the cam screen a coyote comes out the trail head and stop and checks things out , I seen it before and knew what he was going to do , follow the wood line on side the house , so I grab a 410 with buckshot ( I live rural and can shot where I am at ) , go out the back door and set up on the patio for a 80 ft shot , half way shoulder the gun , that was mistake 1 , he comes into view from behind the pump shed and when I raised the gun to aim he sensed it and jumped into the woods , I shined the light into the woods then went in and made a pot of coffee , sitting there I think about reviewing the tape and seeing the hunt unfold , watched the action and almost turn off the recorder but left it running while I watched TV and 2 minutes after the first one came out 3 more followed the same track with noses to the ground , if I would have stayed in place another two minutes I would have got a chance at 3 together , mistake 2 , cie la vie , so over the weekend I show a friend and he says you should look at the recording for the week and see if they were there other nights , so when I looked at the tape , didn't see coyotes but I did find a doe and a fawn walked the same track the night before , so I figure the first coyote was scouting out the track of the fawn and doe and the rest of the pack was following him , over the weekend we got a lot of rain which washed the slate clean and I have not seen a track since , but suspect the same senerio , deer tracks then coyote tracks then no tracks
I been thinking it over if I should post what the wife and I saw because I know the majority responce already ------ but we saw what we saw , so here's the story for those that believe in 'what don't exist' ---- last Saturday night the wife and I went to a late dinner , heading down 190 in the Lacombe /BigBranch area there is a pipeline which crosses the road , a very large 'BLACK' cat ran across the front of the truck very close , we both seen it, it was the wife's second time seeing it , and what she discribed to me of her first sighting is exactly what I saw , it came out the edge of the woods on side the pipeline , it crossed the grass between the woods and the shoulder, both shoulders and both lanes in three and a half strides , it cleared about a lane and 1/4 in one leap , the tail was as long as the cat , I'd say 4ft , total length of the cat and tail 8 ft , wider than my full size Dodge truck , I'd say 100 lbs easy ,I shot a 42 lb Bobcat last year and comparing it to what I seen I think it could be 150 lbs , I thought of going back Sunday morning and look for tracks but it has been so dry --------- so take it for what you want , we are not the only people in Lacombe that claim to have seen it , as I have heard the same story a dozen times in the last couple of years

I been working on shutting down this chicken fillet late night drive thru going on in the pictures , just when I thought I had it under controll , the second wave comes in , the coyote gang was working it last week and this guy wasn't around , put up some red led flashing preditor deterorate lights and the coyotes moved on immediately , I hope because of the lights and not just them making rounds like they do , but this cat seems to be not affraid of the lights as he is sitting right in the beam ---------- suggests appreachiated
Keeping in mine with the dramatic changes of weather going on in the last few years , it is good to be prepared for it ------ not just your equipment but also yourself -----I was putting together a list of things to put in and do to my truck and boat for winter diasters like getting wet or breaking down and wonder if any of you'll have some things that might get over looked
