    Lewis that guy's a nut case, but if it were'nt for guys like that alot of people wouldn't be around, he has done a tremendous service to people who are outdoors during the winter months for fishing hunting or skiing, I don't know if I could of done what he has but now know what to and what not to do, thanks for posting.

  5. Very informative. Everyone who posts to this forum NEEDS to watch this. Let's make it mandatory! Thank you.

    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    Very good info

  7. I have only ever ice fished once but have thought about giving it a real try this year. This video has been a great source of information. This served as a reinforcement of the danger involved in being on the ice. And it certainly taught me a great deal about increasing your odds of survival if you go in.

    Thanks for the post.

    Lastly, that guys is truly nuts!:eek: But as was mentioned he is doing a great service and probably has and will save many lives with this demonstration.

    "J" I agree something terribly wrong with the doc. I think he froze him self one too many times. But I guess it was for mankind. I wonder if the doc believes in shrinkages

    Excellent information. Really makes me rethink what to do and what to wear on the ice.

    "If I am lucky, my arms will freeze to the ice before I become unconscious...and drown" sticks in my head.
  10. Thank you again, Lewis. That really is "must see" stuff. Last year was my first going out alone - Buckeye, Indian a few times (had been out with guides b4 on Erie). I had the picks but probably wouldn't have really known that "kick, swim up" was best strategy - definitely did not know about the initial shock period. When alone, I try to make sure there are one or more others within earshot and take all the other conventional precautions.

    Good stuff. Worth a few minutes to check out.
  11. Best Video Ive Seen! Good Info. Dont Forget Your Ice Picks :)
  12. that was definately some good info .i am afraid the poor doctor has some issues :confused:

    Amazing! Incredible!

    I applaud the scientist's dedication to his field.
  15. A must see for some is a could care less to some others. That is a must see.
    You might want to edit your post and tell what its about in the title so a passer by might be more likely to read it. You can learn CPR and how to keep people from choking to death on the internet and people still don't do it. I believe that video is just as important. I've had to use CPR 3 times and the Heimlich twice and wouldn't be supprised if I end up using this info before its all over. THANKS
  16. I ve tried to view the link and only get sound...what am i missing?
  17. I got the same thing Jeff.I'm going to download windows media player 10 when I get time and see if that works.I'll let you know.
  18. My system is using Media Player version 10 but I doubt that I was at version 10 when I viewed it the last time. However the problem is definitely in your system, probably the player. I hope you are able to resolve it because these are very good clips. I am not an ice fisherman but it taught me plenty about dealing with those situations.
