| Outdoor Board|| How to Fix Muddy Back Yard Cheap? - Teague on 3/12/14 at 6:58 am|
I live in a small house with a small, fenced back yard. The back yard is very shaded, so grass doesn't grow that well back there to begin with. Then, added on top of that, we have two dogs that go out frequently. Those two things combined make for a muddy mess. And that means the dogs are a muddy me...
| Outdoor Board|| Mossberg 835, Full Shooting Range, Stupid Sights - Teague on 3/10/14 at 8:07 am|
I've mentioned before that my dad bought me a Mossberg 835 "ulti-choke" turkey gun a few months ago in an attempt to bribe me into becoming more of a turkey hunter.
Anyway, turkey season is fast approaching, so I decided to take it over to the shooting range on a nearby WMA to pattern it. HOLY M...
| Outdoor Board|| Hunting Jack Russel Terrier - Bored at Work Topic - Teague on 2/28/14 at 2:31 pm|
Sometime down the road, I'm thinking of adding a dog to my hawking team. Right now, I'm leaning heavily toward a Jack Russel. They're very popular with falconers who hunt rabbits and squirrels.
Just wondering if any of you have any experience with the breed. I know they're very high energy. They...
| Outdoor Board|| Hogs With .22lr - Teague on 2/21/14 at 11:34 pm|
I've never been hog hunting. We don't have many up here. But there's a pretty good pocket of them on a WMA nearby. I think I'm going to head over there Sunday and try to ambush one. But, on WMA's, we can only use weapons for whatever is in season. Right now, that's small game. So I'm limited to the ...

| Outdoor Board|| If you always wanted a 1911 but could only have one handgun for eternity..... - Teague on 1/27/14 at 12:21 pm|
Would you get a Ruger SR1911 CMD, or a small compact 9mm like the M&P Shield?
This is my dilemma.
I'm looking at buying the wife a small purse gun soon, and that has me looking at handguns for myself. I've always wanted a 1911, but this will likely be my one and only handgun for many years. ...
| Outdoor Board|| Learn Me About Handguns - Teague on 1/15/14 at 7:29 am|
I grew up hunting and got my first shotgun when I was 10. Ninety-nine percent of the hunting I did back then was with a bow, but I've had various shotguns and rifles. But, as far as handguns, I've honestly only ever fired a few and never owned one of my own.
So, I really don't know jack about th...
| Outdoor Board|| Why No 4x4 Vans? - Teague on 1/8/14 at 8:37 am|
I know there are companies out there that will convert them, but why do none of the auto manufacturers offer a 4x4 van? It seems like they would be an awesome hunting/camping rig.
| Outdoor Board|| Teague's New Falconry/Hawking Thread - Teague on 12/10/13 at 2:31 pm|
I guess I will start another one of these for this year, since a few of you seem to enjoy it, and I'm often bored at work.
I released my red tail from last year in order to concentrate on a Cooper's hawk this year. Well, that was short lived, as the Cooper's didn't work out. So, I trapped a new ...
| Outdoor Board|| Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Steel? - Teague on 12/5/13 at 5:53 pm|
I ordered a leek for me for my bday. I ordered it under the impression that the blade was 14C28N. Now, rereading some of the amazon descriptions, I see they are saying the blade is 440A. Which is correct, or are there some of each?
ETA - I found a site that says amazon is wrong, and the steel is ...
| Outdoor Board|| Carhartt vs. Fire Hose pants - Teague on 12/4/13 at 10:07 am|
I need some pants for hawking. I wear brush chaps over them, but I still wear out jeans very quickly, especially the knees.
I'm looking at either the double front carhartt work pants: http://www.amazon.com/Carhartt-Double-Front-Dungaree-B01/dp/B002G9U3WS/ref=cts_ap_2_fbt
Or fire hose pants fr...
| SEC Rant|| Congrats to Auburn - Teague on 12/1/13 at 4:19 pm|
I was a little worried about our run defense going into this game. Oh well.
Anyway, quite a turn around by the tigers this year. You won't hear any excuses from me. Bama had plenty of opportunities and just couldn't get it done. Auburn made plays. Congrats.

| Outdoor Board|| Vintage Lanterns - Teague on 11/4/13 at 2:37 pm|
Anybody here collect them, or have one you use? I have an acquaintance that collects old Colemans. I saw some photos, and got interested. I like things with a sense of nostalgia. Somehow they just seem cooler than a new one with a propane bottle screwed on.
Anyway, seems like kind of a fun littl...
| Outdoor Board|| My New Bird - Teague on 10/18/13 at 9:49 pm|
For those of you that follow my follies and exploits, I decided I needed a cooper's hawk this year to go with my red tail. Just trapped her today. I plan to chase doves, quail, woodcock, starlings, pigeons, crows, ducks, and bunnies with her.
| SEC Rant|| Nice try, Aggies, but that game sucked - Teague on 9/16/13 at 6:50 am|
First off, I'd like to congratulate the Aggies on a hard fought loss. That offense is really good. I never thought you'd score that many points. And that brings me to my next point; my Alabama mindset will not allow me to enjoy any game where the opposition is moving the ball at will.
It was dis...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Kenyan Drake - Teague on 9/13/13 at 12:14 pm|
I expected him to be in the mix this year. I read somewhere that he'll be playing this week. I don't if that's true or not. But, I think we have a bit more of a finesse O-line than usual so I really expect more passing and off tackle running. I think he'd excel with his speed. I'm just not sure what...

With all the bad stuff out there lately, it's good to read something positive. I've liked CJ since his freshman year.

| Alabama Sports Board|| Why wasn't this reviewed? - Teague on 9/11/13 at 4:24 pm|
It didn't matter anyway, because Bama scored a TD on the drive. But, it looked VERY close and they never stopped play to look at it.

Any recommendations of a good campsite in the smokies? We're going to take a camping vacation the first week in Sept, and I think we're going to do it in the smokies. It will be tent camping with the wife and our 8 year old daughter. The more secluded the better, but not backpacking. It would be nic...
| SEC Rant|| Catch/Incompletion Rule - Teague on 7/31/13 at 1:57 pm|
This is one that's always been a little foggy in my mind.
At what point is possession awarded to a receiver? Specifically, if a receiver dives for the ball, catches it in his hands, controls it throughout the fall, but the ball touches the ground (while still controlled, not juggled) as his outs...
| SEC Rant|| SEC Baseball - Teague on 7/19/13 at 12:42 pm|
My intriguing chess question thread got me thinking....
In baseball, is there a written rule that a pitcher can't throw the ball immediately as soon as he gets it back from the catcher? I know the ump can stop him, or slow him down, but can he just fling 3 pitches in 12 seconds? I assume there's ...
| SEC Rant|| Do SEC Schools have Chess Teams? - Teague on 7/19/13 at 11:03 am|
I was just reading about chess, and wondered if there were teams at each school.
Also, I noticed that there are some kinds of "speed" chess which have split off and are played as their own game. Most traditional chess players don't consider these to be actual chess, as it changes how the game wa...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Dee Hart? And the Poor Return Game - Teague on 7/1/13 at 5:06 pm|
I usually keep up with the team a little more closely than I have this offseason. He didn't transfer did he? Is he back to 100%?
The reason I ask, is because our punt and kick return guys have been turrible since Arenas left (other than some flashes by Maze). I was rewatching the ole miss game l...
| Outdoor Board|| Pellet Rifles - Any Experts Here? - Teague on 5/28/13 at 1:48 pm|
I live in the city. I have squirrels. And starlings. Both make good hawk food, but the bird is fat and unhuntable during the molting season.
So, what should I look for in a pellet rifle? The last one I shot was a crossman pump some 20 years ago. Obviously, I don't know much about pellet guns tod...

Met my dad yesterday to go crappie fishing and he surprised me with a turkey gun. He's a big turkey hunter, and I really haven't hunted turkeys much since I was a teenager. I went with him once this year and have plans to do more turkey hunting next year. He really wants me to turkey hunt more with ...

| Outdoor Board|| Any Knife Makers? - Teague on 4/19/13 at 9:13 am|
I tried my hand at making a knife once, about 4 years ago now. I enjoyed it, but the motor in my belt grinder went out as I was making it, so it was the only one I ever made. I've been thinking lately I should get a new motor and make a knife for myself. I gave the first one to my dad.
