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...

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...

| 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 ...

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.

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 ...

Looking to get a youth shotgun for 9 year old Dong. He has experience shooting .22 as well as 20 gauge single shot, which kicks like a mule and he loves it.

the water is full of seaweed and as brown as my pond. Good news, the little Dongs could not give a rat's wazoo and are boogie boarding to knock off a little of the edge they developed during the six hour drive. Also, Mrs. Dong loves the beach...:pimp:

Spent the afternoon with the boys and took them to Bass Pro so they could use their gift cards their Godparents got them for being in the A Honor Roll all year.
The littlest Dong opted to get his first compound bow - the Tomcat. He's stoked and has been firing away at his 3D deer in the backyard...

Actually, just taught him how to change and repair/plug a tire this morning - being self sufficient. He was ready to quit once we jacked up the car, but I made him stick with it to the bitter end. Now, he's ready to rescue any damsels in distress on the side of the road.

My neighbor needs to cull his fish stock and we need bass in our pond. My plan is to fill a large garbage can halfway up with water and use it as a live well adding the fish as we catch them.
So, here are my questions:
1. Do I need a small battery operated aerator if I plan to release the f...
