Happieness is......

Unread postby Brad » Fri Dec 09, 2011 3:21 pm

4 brand new beaver dam tip ups for $31 bucks each. I have always wanted some since they are literally a piece of Wi history, and decided to start collecting them in their different paint schemes. I found these at Dorns in Madison for $31 each, I got two of the pirate ones, the packer one, and the one with the tiger stripe which I believe to be one of the rarest. I think I will try to add 2 each year until I have all of them. Now I just need a little ice and some hungry pike!

i envy you!!! i have 4 myself. used to have 5 but i was up on bay de noc last year and neglected to put a marker by it and low and behold, i looked out my window about 2 hours later.,,totally drifted over...spent 2 hours searching and never found it...someone on late ice got a free one...i would like the jolly rodger and the packers one...hard to find the packers one...not to mention they are the best dam (no pun intended) tipup money can buy!! ive had them get runover by drunk snomobilers and they still functioned! :lol:

If you want a packer one I can get it for you, they have several left as of monday. The jolly rogers one is sort of different from mine, I was told the jolly roger one was made exclusively for Farm and fleet and fleet farm, and is all black with the skull and crossbones on the flag and the board, these are a very nice dark stain that shows the grain of the wood well, with the pirate flag. I will get an actual jolly rogers next along with the 50th anniversary one I think. Someone said they made some with the American Flag, sure would love to come across one of them sometime. I think I will eventually use all of them, but my thoughts were the dark pirate ones would show up well on the snow at a distance.

yeah the jolly roger is all black...shows up better than any other color in snow..the american flag one would be awesome!!! i took a little american flag and replaced the tattered flag of my oldest beaver dam last year and it was the first one to fly! the tipup belonged to my gradfather..he died 15 years ago and hadent ice fished for 5 years before that, so i would guess that tipup is 30 years old...still works perfectly!

They had about 15 or so as of monday, I imagine they will sell fast but its hard to say, a lot of people already have beaver dams so I imagine they only sell one to most people looking instead of multiples. I wish they could have put a packer "G" on the flag or on the board but oh well, such is life.
