| Outdoor Board|| Why is it taboo for "professional" deer hunters to shoot more than once? - DownshiftAndFloorIt on 7/20/14 at 3:46 pm|
Why do they almost never shoot more than once?
Often they make a horrible shot, the deer is still clearly in view and still alive, and they start high fiving the camera man and using binoculars.
Why do they never make an attempt to finish off the animal?...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do people in Harahan/Kenner/New Orleans hate turn signals? - DownshiftAndFloorIt on 7/18/14 at 7:27 am|
For those who are natives, why do you not use your blinkers when you're getting ready to turn? It's an epidemic. After a few months of careful observation, close to half of the drivers I see do not use their turn signals around here. Plenty of the ones that do don't turn them on until they've starte...

Just got back from shooting and I have some questions about it.
1) Will the magazine spring loosen up? This thing is a dog to load full.
2) What kind of accuracy should I be expecting? I'm used to long barreled revolvers and hitting a can at 30 yards is usually pretty easy. It was taking me ...

Thinking about getting one for my coon dogs. Does anybody have any experience with them, or more importantly running a dog with a pile of collars on them?
My main concern is the e-collar interfering with my tracking collar. I'd be running my dogs with 3 collars on and I'm not sure if that's going...

I only know two things about commuter cars (ie cars that are supposed to get good fuel mileage). I know I don't want one, and I know I need to get one. I have a pretty long drive to work and doing it in my truck daily just isn't going to happen.
Are there any of those fuel sipping ultra reliable...

My coon dog tore a pad on his front paw. I've been putting some EMT gel dope on it and it keeps it from hurting him for a while, but I don't think that's a good thing. It's getting better, but at this rate it'll be a month before I can hunt him.
Any old school remedies out there? I have some good...

Time to get some new shoes for big green.
In this picture it's wearing 33x12.5r15 BFG KM2's. There's definitely room for more meat under there, but I'm pretty happy with the 33's. It still pulls really well and anything bigger is going to land me a re-gear from 3.73 to 4.56

I got tired of lugging my henry .22 through the woods while chasing coon hounds, so I bought myself an early graduation present, a Ruger 22/45 target.
When I opened the box I found out that it included a scope base and was already drilled and tapped. I wasn't ready for that and hadn't even consid...

I want a light from the fat man this year, but I can decide if I want an LED light or an old style 5100 hot lite.
The main advantage of the 5100 style is an adjustable beam and a whole lot of years of proving, while the LEDs have incredible battery life and the b...
