| Outdoor Board|| Wet bean stubble + cold North wind + snipe = - CajunAlum Tiger Fan on 12/30/14 at 4:59 pm|
A great time.
Riding the Ranger and noticed a few snipe, do decided to stop and make a hunt. It may be my favorite game bird and it was a hell of a good time. The woodie and merganser were flyovers and I was lucky to drop both.
Anyone else love to shoot snipe?

Any personal experience with a wiper brand/model that works well and lasts? I put Rain-X brand on my truck at the last oil change and haven't been impressed. I have to cycle them a few times just to clean the spray from the mister.

I'm generally not a food snob and enjoy pretty much anything, but there are a few things I see friends/family do when cooking that bother me way too much. I never say anything, but I'm sure thinking it.
Some of mine:
Using Italian dressing for anything other than salad
