| Outdoor Board|| best place in BR to take a Beretta 3901 that needs fixing? - gorillacoco on 4/5/14 at 11:14 am|
Beretta 3901, won't cycle shells properly. I bought almost new from someone who'd won it in a raffle (allegedly). Cleaned entire gun multiple times, put >200 rounds through the gun to try and break it in, per suggestions on various websites. Gun still will not cycle shells properly.

| Outdoor Board|| land clearing: how difficult is it to turn <10 yr old woods into pasture? - gorillacoco on 4/2/14 at 9:31 am|
and what sort of equipment do you need? lets say 10 acres just for example.
my guess, without knowing anything, is that you would need to cut down the larger trees, and probably burn them in piles. then i have no idea what to do with the stumps, maybe dig them up (sounds like an enormous amount o...
| Outdoor Board|| 1000 questions on buying land - gorillacoco on 3/24/14 at 2:59 pm|
so i think that in the next few years i want to buy some land. i have a few questions:
1. is it dumb to want to only buy with cash? this is my first inclination, but within 4-5 years, even with the woman pitching in, i can't see coming up with more than 50-60K without defunding my retirement cont...
| Outdoor Board|| blinding in when duck hunting - gorillacoco on 3/4/14 at 4:44 pm|
how important is this to you?
can you get away with just keeping motion down to a minimum?
do your duck blinds have covers over the top as well as the sides?
and last but not least, what terrain do you hunt and is it public land?
i am a total noob at this, but i generally just lean ...

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone have tips to install sump pump for standing water under your house? - gorillacoco on 2/18/14 at 11:43 am|
I have a standing water problem under the house because of the way my lot drains & it seems i need to install a sump pump to keep the water out. My basic understanding of how to do it is this:
-dig a hole 6-8" larger than the sump pit
-fill bottom 6" of hole with gravel
-put in sump pit

| Outdoor Board|| spinoff: do you use ear protection when duck hunting? - gorillacoco on 2/3/14 at 6:35 pm|
also, for reference, note your normal hunting situation (public flooded timber, public marsh, rice field lease, etc...)
ETA: no, i don't but most of the time i am in public flooded timber and i oftentimes hear the ducks before i see them so i'm hesitant to try earplugs....
| Food and Drink Board|| Why do people want to put fruit in their king cake? - gorillacoco on 2/2/14 at 6:49 pm|
I just don't get it. It's a perfectly good king cake, why does it need fricking blueberries? I can understand Bavarian cream and cream cheese maybe, but i just don't get the fruit filling. Even praline filling is a stretch.
I also do not understand how some "plain" king cakes do not even have cin...
| Outdoor Board|| what is the biggest decoy spread you hunt with on a semi-regular basis? - gorillacoco on 1/30/14 at 12:12 pm|
Even in the marsh, my brother and I never bring more than about 6 dozen decoys. Two mojos and maybe a swimming duck and weasle ball if we bring everything. Majority of the time I hunt with 1 doz decoys, but that's generally due to it being a walk-in spot in flooded timber....

how do you guys feel about duck leases in the marsh? i have the feeling that no matter where in the state the lease is, your blinds would be pretty hit or miss, as the birds seem to move around a lot in my experience. i would hate to be tied down to a relatively small area but maybe i am missing som...

in my limited duck-hunting experience, i find that sending out an occasional wood-duck squeal seems to bring more fly-bys. how do you guys feel about throwing out an occasional mallard hail call? annoying? counterproductive? occasionally works?...
