  1. Loss of a Hagshouse Member

    Very sad news for HagsHouse and the country, the Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today. Her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery and is expected to survive. We lost Chris about 3 months ago and now Peggy, I can only say they are together now. Lets keep her and her grandson in our thoughts and prayers. I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

    Always love your pix and blog observations. Good luck on you snow snake camera trap, can't wait to see if you are successful.
  3. Software driven analyzer

    I have quite a few years with the software driven analyzers on HD lead acid batteries and all of the battery manufactures now want us to use the old fashion load testers for determining warranty claims. Not sure if the lower voltage/amp batteries are different. I do know that clamp contact with the battery is critical, again speaking about HD lead acid battery. We had a substantial investment involved in these, it looks like these would be minimal invested.
  4. Nifty New Charger

    $84 on Amazon, not all that bad of a price. Sure covers a wide range of batteries.

    I received very sad news today and want to let everyone know about the death of a longtime member "212" Chris Warden of Hags House. Below is a partial note I received from his brother this morning. Anyone who knew Chris appreciated the help he would offer to its membership, including myself. Recent new members will find lots of very detailed posts on various builds he did and most helpful was the troubleshooting he was able to do, solving lots of problems for us along the way. R.I.P. my friend and heartfelt condolences to his wife Peggy and the entire Warden Family. Hi, this is Chris 212's little brother Chuck. Chris passed away last week. He had been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer which had already spread to his bronchial tubes. He knew the odds were slim and decided not to go through treatment. Chris and Peggy had been told he would last 2 to 4 months but he held out over à year and died at home. His wishes are to be cremated and to have his ashes buried under à pine tree at his house outside La Vernia,TX. I asked Peggy and she Said it would be ok if I informed this forum of his passing. I do feel it would be better if a regular member did that. I live in Sweden and was planning à trip here in september but came as fast as I could. Chris just got too worse too fast. Take care. Henry C Warden
  6. S600 White Screen

    If you do be very careful the spring wires that connect with the cable are finer than frog hairs and are easy to bend. I would look at the connector on the board with a magnify glass and make sure they are all intack.
  7. From the Cave

    Great blog Woody, love the blog on the Hickory Nuts, we had a large number of wormy ones this year. They are the best tasting nut for baking.

  11. s600 flash replacement

    I believe the S600 needs the screen turned off or it will miss the shutter signal.
  12. Deer hunters in New York might soon ban Deer Urine

    Interesting, I have never heard of this and we are here in the middle of this battle in Wisconsin. Thanks for sharing!

    The site change has gone well as far as I know. I have had one question about the "Message" feature and hope that is straightened out. We also are dealing with "Russian Hacking" yes you heard correctly, it's not just politics, I will leave it at that. We seem to be able to catch everything so far, just help out and don't be afraid to mark strange postings as "Spam" . Ok we have installed "Tapatalk" now that the site seems to be running trouble free. You can find it : Hag's House - hagshouse.com I had to come up with a description fast and this is what I came up with: "Custom built DIY game cameras and electronic game accessories." If someone else has a better description please share, we can have up to 140 characters.

    I made this an announcement, but want to post here. Thanks all again I know Peg and family appreciated it. Mr. Stadler, I didn’t post this under announcements, but you can if you want. Thank you very much for sending the card, money and letting the members know about Chris’s death. The members on Hagshouse are a special group of guys. I knew that you all have really big hearts from past experiences when I was helping with charity auctions, etc. But I didn’t know what to say when I got a card with a $500.00 check because Chris had been inactive for a good while now. Thank you all for the money and the kind words that were written about him on the website. It was a great comfort for our family to read through each post. It is just amazing that guys, most of whom I have never met in person, hundreds of miles away, reach out to help with prayers and money. Chris and I were very thankful for being able to have come to know allot of you through e-mail and phone conversations, being part of your website and running the store. Life without Chris is the hardest thing in life that I have ever had to do, but it sure does make it easier to bear with friends like you. There has got to be a big meeting place reserved up in heaven where all the Hagshouse guys get together. God bless you all! Sincerely, Peggy Warden P.S. Chris had signed me up with the Hagshouse member name of “Methuselah”. As some of you may know, Methuselah was the oldest person in the Bible. Lol! He did have a sense of humor.
  17. Batteries

    Our H/B cameras are based on buying an over the counter personal camera and hacking it to work with a separate controlling board.. These cameras have a different type processor that requires a high amperage at startup which is more conducive to the characteristics of rechargeable. You can use alkaline in our systems, but often times the stamina of alkaline are no where near what rechargeable are. Some commercials that use rechargeable batts will have a extra tray for them and when using alkaline they provide a dummy battery to put in it's place.
  18. Batteries

    An eneloop charger is just that a charger. A smart charger does lots of things to the battery. I am not sure I can tell you all it does and what sequence , but it discharges your batteries then recharges and then discharges then takes internal resistance , etc. in what order I don't know and how many times, etc. is all programmed into the unit. This whole process depending on your condition of batteries can take a couple days vs a couple hrs. with an eneloop or any other charger.
  19. I'm alive!

    Hey Paul glad to see your ok. I hear the kid thing, my 16 yr old niece told us late winter she wanted to get certified in scuba this summer. The hardest part of this whole ordeal was coming up with when she could go! It ended up being a lot of fun and it was great experience for her and her Aunt and Uncle. Hunting is coming and my nephew is 10 years old and he wants to hunt deer this year, he weighs 68 lbs and I will have to have him use a crossbow. I took him Turkey hunting in the spring and it was a good thing I had a large tent, so he could do laps inside. Wisconsin’s mentoring program is really kind of nice for these kids to get out in the woods hunting.

    Here is Chris Warden (212) Obituary http://tinyurl.com/ycnatdcs Christopher Lee Warden Christopher Lee Warden, 59, passed away peacefully in his home in La Vernia, Texas, on Monday, July 17, 2017, surrounded by his family. He was an auto mechanic, but he could repair just about anything else too. Christopher was always ready for another project and helped anyone in need. His motto was, do one thing, do it right, and then do something else. He was preceded in death by his father, Henry C. Warden. Christopher is survived by his wife of 39 years, Peggy (Stevens) Warden; mother Dorthy Warden; daughter Jennifer Racey; grandsons Zachary Poston, Kriegen Racey, and Roman Racey; brother Henry C. Warden Jr. and wife Anja; stepsisters Carolina Warden and Valeska Warden; stepbrother Adam Warden; a special aunt, Faye Cooper; and many other family members. A private family service will be held to honor his memory. We are all very thankful to have been able to have him with us for the past year since his lung cancer diagnosis, said his family. The family would like to thank Nurses In Touch Hospice in Floresville for their help.
  22. Metal Detector

    I bought a cheap one $40.00 clearance after xmas about 4-5 years ago, mainly to find survey stakes and I thought I would bring it along on vacation and check the beaches. It worked great for finding the survey stakes and I took it on vacation one time and was to lazy to do any beach cleaning.
  23. Forum Upgrade

    If we are down, it will hopefully be only a short time, thanks for being patient. It will also have a new skin look to it. I am trying to salvage somehow a piece or pieces of the old look, this may not be immediate.
  24. New Members

    We are starting to accept new members using the Board settings. With the old version we had to modify this procedure, but so far this new version seems to weed out the spammers. Now that doesn't mean it can't be done, but so far in a months time it flagged and isolated thousands and approved 5. I do need your help and I believe everyone can do the following if a spammer gets in and starts spamming. 1) Click on the members Name 2) Click on "Flag as Spammer" It will immediately shutdown the spammer and hide any posts and notify me. Thanks for your help!
  25. Forum Upgrade

    Ok I wanted to get some time under our belt to work out any problems. I have not had any issues so far. Someone mentioned Tapatalk, I see this used all the time on other forums and wonder if this is something that would be used. Also any other things we might want to add?
