Anyone up for a boat ride?

Postby TopWop » Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:11 am

I'm bored off my ***. Anyone interested in going to
Ennis lake,if it's open? I really haven't been able to
take my boat out yet and the conditions are pretty
mild.
Since I/we got booted from our hunting spot of decades
I'm branching out. Anyway, PM me if you ain't skerred.
Rocki said if I don't get her some work soon she's
leaving. I'm off to sportsman's Whorehouse to by a
push pole.

Sounds like fun hope you find some birds. We are heading to billings tonight to hopefully slay some geese. Sounds like the ducks are a little thin down there with the weather, but a begillion geese around so hopefully we can get on some good shoots. Have a good weekend everyone and pray for some fowl weather.

Regarding a push pole, I just met a hunter who showed me a 40-year old push pole made of Douglas Fir. Too simple! It is 10.5 feet long. At the handle end it is 2 inches. At the blade end it is 4 inches. It was plained to be 1 inch thick with rounded edges. I loved it because, unlike the collapsing duck model, the blade is just that--a blade. Use it as a push or pick it up and use it as a blade to re-align the boat's progress. Mine is almost ready. I have used Thompson Water seal, a stain and now all I need to add is a slather of boiled linseed oil.

Be careful with those Avery push poles. I was pushing along my little Momarsh boat and the pole snapped as I was using it to "push" my small boat along. It's a push pole! The two things it should do are push and it also should be a pole. Doesn't seem that hard. The interesting thing about it was that when it snapped it left a nice sharp jagged edged that I could have landed on, it really made me rethink this aluminum push pole. Also it left me without anything to propel myself with.
