| Outdoor Board|| You have $1000 to buy a deer rifle and scope - what's your choice? - SpqrTiger on 1/4/15 at 11:56 am|
I'm in this situation right now. $1,000 budget. Give me your recommendations. I want to know what you would be looking at, rifle and scope combo.
Here's my usual hunting situation: shots less than 200 yards, mostly 100 to 150 yards, open field and woods. Thinking .270 or .308.
Thanks in ad...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| In Praise of Smaller Leagues - SpqrTiger on 12/23/14 at 4:16 pm|
What are your thoughts about smaller leagues?
I run an 8 team league, and a lot of people say, well, that's not enough competition, but after being in both big and small leagues, I think smaller leagues are the way to go.
Main reasons why I believe this:
1. Sure, all the teams are loaded, ...
| Outdoor Board|| So Who Do You Think is Right? - Deer Population Question - SpqrTiger on 12/17/14 at 8:27 am|
Here's the background. We have a small piece of property in Mississippi near Brookhaven (50 acres). It's too small to hold a deer herd. We mostly see what passes through from around the area.
Last year, we saw hardly any deer at all. A few does here and there and a buck or two, but only ever ...

If you're like me you like to get your Christmas shopping in early. So I thought I would make a thread to share gift ideas.

Anything new that's caught your eye? Have any go-to gifts that are appreciated?

| Tiger Rant|| Do you feel alienated by the "new" SEC? - SpqrTiger on 10/3/14 at 3:09 pm|
I'm just getting a thought off my chest here. I don't want to be all "SEC hates LSU" or "ESPN hates LSU" here. I'm just stating something I'm feeling as an LSU fan. This isn't even whining. Honest. I just want to see if I'm the only idiot who feels this way.

| O-T Lounge|| History Fans - Great Story about WWII Bomber Pilot and German Fighter Pilot - SpqrTiger on 3/13/13 at 9:37 am|
Sorry if already posted. The story is a few days old, but I haven't seen it linked.
CNN published a long article about an American B-17 pilot whose helpless plane was spared by a German fighter pilot in 1943.
The two pilots met later in life and became best friends.
It's a really good read...

I'm sure there are many sharp-eyed viewers among us, so maybe you did notice this. I did on my second viewing.
Gandalf's staff is different in Fellowship of the Ring than in the Hobbit.
I'm sure a lot of you caught that.
But did you notice that the staff he is using in that movie belongs t...

Okay... I'm a little late getting to this one. I watched it last night on HBOGo and I felt compelled to say a few things about it.
This movie is a lot better/deeper than I was expecting. The movie has the usual set of Cameron Crowe devices to pull at your heartstrings, but 80% of the time it pu...

Any tips to make sure they say soft?
Also, does anyone have any ideas for adding flavor to them like citrus zest or something like that? Anything unusual work good for you?...

| Money Talk|| Car totaled - how to get best settlement with insurance? - SpqrTiger on 11/21/12 at 12:12 pm|
Not at fault. Not ticketed.
Got rear-ended and the car was totaled.
Insurance company's first offer (car value + TTL minus my deductible) is about $2,400 less than what I was expecting.
Any negotiating tips to suggest as far as getting their offer to come higher?

My girlfriend and I are beginning to talk details about getting married and buying a house soon in one of the outlying areas around Baton Rouge. She wants a more rural kind of house. Not a subdivision if it can be avoided.
