| Outdoor Board|| What happened to all the gun control talk? - Geauxtiga on 5/15/13 at 11:04 pm|
Obama has MUCH bigger fish to fry right now. With the IRS, BenG and AP scandals brewing we won't have to worry about any gun control.
Plus with the guy how had the 3 girls then the tornados messing with Texas, we're in the clear.
Even Piers is off the subject. ...

I have a Garmin for my vehicle. Wife and daughter want to buy bf one for a grad present. He hunts and fishes a lot so I mentioned why not getting a hand-held.

| Outdoor Board|| Snaggin - Geauxtiga on 4/28/13 at 6:54 pm|
Who here does this? I've never been but two things I know in talking to others who do is that: 1/ You can catch a lot of fish when they're running and 2/ You work your arse off doing it.
I'd love to see picks of the rigs used and catches from it, if anyone has them.

I had a friend give me one of these. Their offshore company (Apache')had given some out. I had it for several years but lost it the other day. I was so bummed but then I found them on the Kershaw website and they were on sale.
These knives hold an edge for a long time. They company also will tak...

Figured we may as well get this going. He's the third one for me this season. One of the others was a Common Snapping turtle and two were Aligator Snapping turtles.
Lucked up on this Aligator Snapper. Set a hoop net to catch some catfish and had him in it this afternoon.
He's a baby by tenfoe...

In regard to the pitiful interest rates, say someone were to take a huge sum of money out of the bank to keep in a safe deposit box in cash.
Later (2,3, or 5 years or more) if it's re-deposited or a CD opened, would it be a problem. Would it raise a red flag and cause some bullchit?...

I guess nothing should be added blindly without a soil test but I never seem to have the time to bring one in.
Did find this interesting read on a study that shows it is a beneficial practice and was wondering how many here do and what application method you use?

Not sure how many here fish with hoop nets besides tenfoe but was wondering if he, or anyone, knew just how much the ring size of the net affected what you caught.
Back in middle school my dad and I had a few we'd put in the bayou but I don't remember how big they were.

Had a good time but the hog hunt itself wasn't what I enjoyed the most. Enjoyed the entire outing. We cooked fish in a gravy on an open fire for lunch.
Most impressive thing about the hunt was the programmed collars and the guy being able to tell us any given dogs' distance from us and whether...

Has to be the biggest POS revolver, yes? This one was for my grandfather. I'm tempted to stock up on some ammo and keep to offer my daughters. I guess it would be a good starter gun for a young female???
