ya can blow that one out your ass guys .
ive alredy looked into it ,when my daughter came home from school asking about it in prep
Now bluey, is that any way to talk to your friends? You just were looking in the wrong places. You probably ended up on some of those tree hugger web sites that want to protect the jackalopes by pretending they aren't real, hoping guys like us won't look for a license.
If you doubt me, check this page from Cabela's website. You don't think that a reputable company like Cabela's would be trying mislead the public, do you?

If you search further on the web, you can find a lot more interesting info about jackalopes. Here is a link to a serious article by a university professor about jackalopes.

Those who tell you there are no jackalopes are probably the same people who claim that there is no Santa Clause or that the government can't be trusted.
20F and snowing here. Weathermen say the highs won't be above freezing for six days. Pretty cold for us this early in the season.
Our deer rifle season ends Sunday. I wimped out and called the season off yesterday and drove home. You cold weather guys will laugh but I'm happy being warm and toasty right now. For those of you hunting through this arctic blast be safe.
Several years ago I got one of these Jackalopes sent up to me from the world famous Wall Drug store in S. Dakota, so that I could hand carry it to Ukraine, (visiting my wifes friends and family). The customs folks there had a holiday trying to figure out if that was real as well and everyone else around. I gave it to a friend there who's a big time hunter and fisherman there.
After a long speech, with my wife translating, I told of the difficultity I had to get this critter. Climbing mountains, wading ice cold glacial rivers, searching in black caves ect..
He was in awe over my efforts!
Until he opened up the box.. :)
He now has it mounted over his fireplace mantle in the place of honor!
Man is it Cold in Minnesota
Gotta love the spuds
You guys no whats Good,,
-21 when I got up this AM. Forecast is for -19 tonight. Putting the ice down. If I can get away next week I may try to go ice fishing. Early season ice can be good fishing. Bruce
another thing in America I cant fathom
if the lake you are ice fishing is say 50 feet deep , how thick will the ice be?
and the fish that are under it are they , right where the ice stopps ,mid water or on the bottom ?
how cold is the fish ,that's obvisously swimming and feeding ?
and do you use bait or lures ?
my Canadian friend keeps telling me to come on over check it out ,but she doesn't fill in the gaps
The fish are generally not that hungry as they are in the warmer months but they still need to eat. Where they hang out, well you just never know. Bait and/or jigs are what we used for trout. Those fish were real cold and the water was really clear, this made for some fantastic eating.
