 O0 That is really cool, D! And yes, I can see that plastic tip. That shot was from the .17 hornet was good, too. Are you back on the elk again?

I needed a brake from Boat Building and freezing cold shop.
SO I went calling today. It was a heat wave with 2" of new snow +13* and mostly calm .
Loaded up the Snowmobile and pull utility sled and headed north.
We needed to get out before the ice fisherman hit the ice. I planed to take my fox pelt as a decoy but left it behind dang it.
We did Have our silhouette " Kojo" and the shockwave.
Wonderful day and called in a lot of coyotes. We felt the decoy was kinda of a detriment and making the coyotes hang up at 300 yards plus.
I had one dead to rights but I missed My boy did much better with a off hand over my head shot at a coyote sneaking up behind us.
300 yards 17 hornet off hand and we had one down, he is a great shot.
Ice fisherman where crawling all over us by now so we left.
 



Can you see the bullet tip sticking out of the coyote ,
Just the plastic tip the bullet exploded in side like it is designed to do.

  :shock:  :sad:  Those are awful conditions to do stuff like that, D! My shop isn't heated and it sits idle all winter unless some unusual warm weather come along.

Good luck with the Bug, coyotes, and elk!

Every morning to lunch I have been in the shop working on the "Bug".
Slow going, making the "Belly plate" between the cats , it's to keep the water off the prop, which is a must I guess.
With one person it is a two step forward and one step back on every rivet.
 Just need one more LOOONG arm.
Anyway I'm getting it and it will work fine, when completed I'm going to get it filled with foam for flotation, and rigidity.
It's been well below zero most the days and with my propane heater I can get it up to around +10* in the shop, workable but harder to work, you need  coat and gloves.


ALLLL that said I'm tired and planning a calling trip some time this weekend " Weather permitting" .
 There calling for a heat wave at around + 15 and light winds, BUT it has been snowing every day since mid week in all about 10" down here on the flats.
That makes travel tough and walking even harder, the coyotes don't like it either and are hard to coax out for a " Good Time". I'm going to try anyway just not good weather for another try at the cow elk, there is still a month to get that done.

Got my fuel tank today.
 I think it will work out very well.

 It has fuel take outs on top as well as a tube to vent the tank.

I'm going to adapt My Snowmobile filler cap and fuel gauge,

just a float and indicator, to fit in the top where the Car fuel pump would be.

I wish the front portion was an inch thinner.

 There are no baffles in that part of the tank.

 Think I could slowly crush it down an inch or two?

I was thinking a 3/4" piece of plywood and lower the truck on to it

To make a slight "Taper" to the front 4" of the tank...
