My dad calls the whole family about this monster he's got a picture of today. This is very good genetics for our lease and I'm trying to convince my family this is a young deer.
PS after hearing him talk, no way this deer makes it to next year. But ive got to try.

Got a question for the OB. Louisiana resident here, but about 100 acres of our property crosses over into texas.
Would a texas out of state license be necessary to hunt this property, event though it's technically 1 lease? I think I know the answer but hoping I'm wrong lol. ...

A buddy of mine gave me a 'new to me' toolbox. The paint was a little dingy, so i picked up some Rustoleum truck bed coating from Autozone and went to town. I think it turned out great.

I looked on the Wildlife and Fisheries website, but they have not yet posted the Area 2 start date for Rifle season 2014.
Anyone have any insight into when this might happen? One website i read speculated that it will be Oct 25, but that seems a week early to me.

I just ordered a new set of blades and they seem kinda dull. Do you normally sharp brand new blades or are they semi-dull for a reason?

I just finished watching Psych (awesome) on Netflix, and looking for suggestions on what series the Wife and I should get into next.
I've already seen Dexter, House of Cards, and 24, but that's pretty much it. We enjoyed all four of those.

OB mechanics - hoping you can help me.
I have about a 8 year old Briggs 22hp engine. It cranks up just fine, will drive about 20-30 yards or until i engage the blades. At this point, the engine starts to rev/surge up and down and then it eventually dies.
I took a look with my unknowing eyes, a...

Highly recommended on the OB, I bought a tikka hunter a few weeks ago in 270 wsm.
Finally got to sight it in today and I must say, my lord that Rifle is incredible. The trigger is absolutely flawless. Only took 3 shots to get sighted in, then my brother and I both shot groups just under an inch....
| Outdoor Board|| Teach me about WSM's - SportTiger1 on 12/13/13 at 2:16 pm|
I recently bought a 270 wsm for deer hunting. Very excited about it, but comparing the WSM's to their long action counterparts, it got me to thinking.
What gives the WSM more velocity than the regular Magnums, shooting the same weight bullet? Is it just more powder loaded, or some kind of physics...
| Outdoor Board|| I hate a thief. (57657995 edition) - SportTiger1 on 12/6/13 at 11:16 pm|
Had two deer feeders stolen sometime in the past few days on a pipeline. I'd like to think hunters/outdoorsmen are better and more respectful people, but it just isn't true is it? They had to come from the lease right next to us because one feeder had 250 lbs of corn in it, protected the other direc...
| Outdoor Board|| Need assistance with Scope mounting - SportTiger1 on 12/4/13 at 12:36 pm|
I just picked up my new Tikka Hunter last night. What an awesome rifle.
I'm trying to take out the little plugs in the top of the receiver where the scope base screws in. 3 of them unscrewed and came out perfectly fine, but 1 is pushed down in the hole and has no head to unscrew. They are plastic...

| Outdoor Board|| Can this deer still be mounted? - SportTiger1 on 10/23/13 at 1:10 pm|
I killed this buck about 4 years ago. Been sitting in the freezer ever since, because I can't decide what to do with him. Definitely the largest deer i've killed, but not a 'pretty' or symetrical rack by any means.
First, can it still be shoulder mounted after being frozen that long? And, what wo...
