    Been running both of these for a year an a half. I just changed the battery this month to a Die Hard group 24. Got the battery from Advance Auto for about $65. I just run a 12v plug for my fridge, bed rail lights, and a battery monitor off of the battery. I also have the capability to add 3 other things. I plan on running a camp/kitchen light soon. And Im probably not even going to add a relay. Just switch - blue sea - battery. Should be good.

    Anyone going to mobtown this week or has something that needs to get brought back to va? My skidplate took longer than anticipated and wasn't done over the summer break. Trying to see if anyone is heading there this week or I might be heading there Friday myself after the dc airshow if work let's me off the hook.

    I ordered my rear bumper from them in May (advertised lead time was 12 weeks then). We are now on week 18 and they told me Friday it'd be another 6-8 weeks. I get the whole covid situation holds them up with companies they partner with, so not them to blame. How backed up was your skid?

    I have my stock starting battery. And then I have that Die Hard group 24 that just relies on solar to get recharged. Its not linked to the main battery at all

    Gotcha. Are they next to each other under the hood or do you have the accessory battery elsewhere?

    The accessory battery is in its own box in the bed.

    Never been able to hnt either. Killed 3 bears so far I couldn't begin to tell you how many I have seen and let walk, had come to the tree stand, bedded down within 20 yards. I like deer but the bears are far more entertaining to watch.

    Believe it was 6 weeks and we are at at 10 or so. Not a biggie but plan was to go out to the beaches or camp over the summer and grab the plate during. @nguyenpatrickt had his ordered some days after me. Maybe his gets done this week and I grab it.

    I probably wouldn't actively hunt any bears. Especially black bears because they're wimps. I had one in my way when I was hiking the AT and he refused to move even after I yelled and screamed at him. I ended up throwing a rock at him and he went running through the woods. (I was young and thought I was invincible).

    I've had a few trips out West and I won't fuck with brown bears or grizzlies. Only rock I'll throw at them is a 400 grain lead rock going at over 2000 feet per second, and that would be a last resort.

    Been woofed at several times and teeth popped at me in the dark but generally yes the black bears are more scared of us than we are of them. They are fun to hunt with a bow though. Killed the last one with a rifle and won't do that again just not the same. Typically when the rifle comes out it's just to fill the freezer

    On the Saw topic.. I have a MS-271. this was purchased a few years ago because my old Echo CS-301 went down (primer bulb with no replacement on hand). Love that little thing. When you were done working, it wasn't. Could have sworn that thing has told me to get off my ass and back to work a time or too.

    That said, the 271 is more saw than I need right now. but purchased it with the intent of finally moving out to the country and it being at home. I do find the choke operation kinda annoying over the standard pull/push (the new is an automatic, lift and pull). I'm just used to older saw setups. Not that there is anything wrong with it.. just it operates a little different. Over all, I like it and it's has done a fine job.
