| Outdoor Board|| Big buck down...not mine - LongDuckDong on 12/22/14 at 5:28 am|
My neighbor walked out of his house to climb in his truck and head to his girlfriend's when this big fella stepped out. He was hot on the trail of a doe. Guess you could say they were both looking for love last night.
| Outdoor Board|| Help on purchasing a youth shotgun - LongDuckDong on 11/10/14 at 6:15 pm|
It's time to buy Little Dong 1 his first shotgun. I'm looking at a Remington 11-87 20 gauge. Problem is he shoots left handed due to being right handed and left eye dominant. I might be missing something, but I don't think they make that gun in a left handed model. He's been using a loaner during 4...
| Outdoor Board|| Rate this hoist (rabbit) - LongDuckDong on 10/24/14 at 8:58 pm|
Little Dong 2 got his first rabbit today. As you can tell he's quite proud of himself. As is his Old Man.
Tomorrow, Little Dong 1 and I are headed out to harvest his first whitetail. At least that's our plan.

Mrs Dong and Little Dong 1 built our first kick fire of the year while soaking in the Fall weather. May have to forego watching the game on TV and opt for radio while watching our cave man TV.

Well, at least the Little Dongs are part of Team Yak. Over and under on how long it will last, anyone?

Finally mounted the rattler we killed several weeks back and hung it above my office desk.
Not bad for a guy that drives a Honda CR-V. Albeit, an all wheel drive.

Steamed skrimps from up the road (FIL's choice - I would have boiled them myself - that's foreign to him cause he can't cook), salad, French bread and water.
It's the first time in 10 years that Mrs Dong and I could spend the whole day down at the beach instead of shuffling between the pool & be...

Dong number one got bored and wanted to hike in the woods in search of wild creatures. We were 50 yards in and Mrs. dong stumbled upon this beast. We dispatched of him quickly. Fourteen rattles and 52" long.

| Outdoor Board|| Big hog down... - LongDuckDong on 4/5/14 at 10:01 am|
Had some guys hunting with dogs and chased this hog for a couple of miles before he ended up in the neighbor's pond. Neighbor put five rounds from a 44 in his head while the dogs circled the pond before he sank to the bottom. One of the hunters stripped to his drawers and went in to retrieve him. Sa...

Sorry no foot in pic. Adrenaline was pumping and I couldn't stand on one leg and take pic. Only caught two, but this one made it worthwhile.

Two day old chicken and sausage gumbo while playing board games (FAMILY FUN NIGHT) with the little Dongs. Jamey Johnson on in the background.
PS - I just won the first round of deer in the headlights cause I'm the shiznitz.
| Outdoor Board|| Up a creek w/o a paddle - 243 Ammo Issue - LongDuckDong on 12/26/13 at 6:00 am|
So, I bought the eldest of the little Dongs a 243 for Christmas and I can't find any ammo. I'm looking for the Federal Premium Vital Shok 100grain Nosler Partition as recommended by my gun dealer, but would settle for something comparable. He gave us what he had - 12 rounds, but we burned that up ...
| Outdoor Board|| Bought the eldest of the little dongs his first rifle today - LongDuckDong on 12/20/13 at 9:53 pm|
Well, actually Santa bought his first rifle. Got him a Savage Axis Youth 243 and put a Bushnell 3-9x40 scope on it. Can't wait for Christmas Day, he'll do back flips.
For what it's worth, I purchased it from Tony at Thompson Creek Sporting Goods and can't say enough good things about my experie...
| Outdoor Board|| Game camera suggestions, please - LongDuckDong on 12/19/13 at 5:13 am|
The eldest of the little Dongs has requested a game camera for Christmas and I don't know diddly squat about them. So, I come to the OB for some direction on which camera offers the greatest value and is durable -my man is nine and could destroy an anvil.

| Outdoor Board|| Yes or no on giving your dog the bone, please _ Pic included - LongDuckDong on 9/17/13 at 3:49 pm|
I've got a pork bone leftover from a boston butt and was considering giving it to my dog, but I've heard mixed reviews - i.e., the bones can splinter and get caught in there intestinal tract causing them the peforate.
What say the OB?
| Outdoor Board|| First dove hunt for the eldest of the Little Dongs - LongDuckDong on 9/14/13 at 12:02 pm|
and he killed his first dove. Albeit. A cripple that landed on a limb over head and it took him three shots to kill, but I couldn't be more proud. Many thanks to his "Parrain" for inviting us and to the good Lord for a beautiful morning and a great hunt.
I meant to add, that his gun discipline ...
