Does anyone have a recommendation for a place to get some custom hats made for a hunting club? Found plenty of places online, but I want to get some waxed cotton hats made with logo and lettering and didnt find any that could do that. Anybody ever done this before?...
| Outdoor Board|| Fishing Coastal Georgia - TheGreat318 on 9/22/14 at 7:01 pm|
I have to be in Brunswick, GA next week for work and will have one day to screw around. Does anyone have any experience fishing the Georgia coast? Sounds similar to LA, only not as awesome. Worth the time? Willing to drive a couple hours in each direction if its worth it....
| Outdoor Board|| Didn't Freeze my Doves...ok til tomorrow? - TheGreat318 on 9/3/14 at 7:43 pm|
Shot doves on Monday, kept on ice overnight, cleaned yesterday and put them in marinade. Had to work late tonight and too tired to mess with them. They'll be ok til tomorrow, right? ...
| Outdoor Board|| Three Days of Camping and Music in Northern Idaho - TheGreat318 on 8/13/14 at 10:48 am|
Just got back from a few days of camping near the tiny busted mining town of Challis, Idaho. Every year, Challis plays home to the Braun Brothers Reunion, a music festival that features some great red dirt, Texas country, bluegrass, and folk bands. This year's line up featured the Turnpike Troubad...
| Outdoor Board|| Hey Texas Guys...Whats the skinny on Dove Season? - TheGreat318 on 7/20/14 at 3:19 pm|
Any idea when Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife will officially announce the 2014 Dove Seasons? Trying to align my LSU vs. Wisconsin plans to hopefully swing on a few doves while I am over that way. Based on previous year's data, it looks like where you are in relation to I-10 can determine i...
| Outdoor Board|| Browning Citori Loose Stock - TheGreat318 on 7/19/14 at 5:57 pm|
Took the Citori out today to shoot some clays. When gripping the gun, I noticed that the stock was loose and rattles a bit when I twisted it. When I pull the stock one way and the trigger guard the other, I can see maybe a half centimeter of gap between the metal and the wood.
I've scoured the f...
| Outdoor Board|| Headed to Jost Van Dyke BVIs - TheGreat318 on 6/26/14 at 6:07 am|
On the plane now. Anybody ever fished down this way? Worth the money? Interwebz says it has good billfishing, but I'm not so sure. There sure are a lot of cuda's and mackerel in these pictures. If I'm gonna drop 800 or so, I want something better than that.
We're so spoiled in Louisiana, I'v...
| Outdoor Board|| My New Turkey Spot - TheGreat318 on 5/4/14 at 8:09 am|
Pulled up to my sister's (no pics) house last night right before sundown. Saw these big fellas strutting around the yard.
Then the dog got loose and they hauled arse into their roost.
| Outdoor Board|| Does anyone fertilize around their duck blinds? - TheGreat318 on 4/25/14 at 8:50 am|
We have a few that look alright during the summer, but take a TON of work in the fall. Others on our place hardly require any brushing at all. Does anyone ever fertilize the mound around the blinds to encourage natural growth? If so, is this the time? ...
| Outdoor Board|| Flounder: The Hottest Cobia Bait of 2014 - TheGreat318 on 4/21/14 at 10:24 am|
Buddy of mine over around Pensacola sent me this pic from the cleaning table.
That's 7 flounder, 2 rays, 1 crab. Thing must have been like a vacuum cleaner on the bottom. Nice sized flounder too....
| Outdoor Board|| Flounder gigging on MS coast? - TheGreat318 on 4/16/14 at 9:22 pm|
Just drove down HWY 90 from Bay St. Louis to Biloxi and saw a few different groups of folks along the way wading with headlamps out off the beach. I never associated this as a good time of year to flounder gig, but unsure what else they could have been doing. Anybody gig this time of year? I've o...
| Outdoor Board|| Auction Question- Bidding on Hunts - TheGreat318 on 3/28/14 at 12:07 pm|
I am headed to a banquet in a few weeks that has had some pretty sweet hunts on the auction block in the past. I have been dying to get down to Argentina for a while now, but have had trouble finding buddies who can commit to going for a number of reasons (can't take the time off, not a good time ...
| Outdoor Board|| Midnight Lump - TheGreat318 on 3/16/14 at 6:46 pm|
Anybody hear any reports from the last few weeks of big fish off the lump?
Time was when that place was a parking lot of boats and big fish being caught every day. Sounds like those days are over for a variety of reasons. Just curious if anyone is still taking a gamble on going out there.
| Outdoor Board|| Good Quail Hunt today! - TheGreat318 on 2/22/14 at 5:59 pm|
22 quail this morning, not bad considering the 20 mph wind!
12 of them for supper with caribou sausage and a selection of fine beverages.
| Help Board|| Was my thread anchored for big pics? - TheGreat318 on 2/4/14 at 2:28 pm|
Seemed like it was going well, not contentious at all. Was it the size of the pics that got it anchored?
| Outdoor Board|| Guatemala Fishing Trip Report 2014 - TheGreat318 on 2/4/14 at 6:57 am|
Just got back from fishing/golfing in Guatemala for 5 days. That place is pretty incredible and remarkably underrated as a fishing and tourism destination. The fishing was pretty meh by their standards (we landed 14 sails in one day and they were pretty bummed). Its also ridiculously cheap down t...
| Outdoor Board|| Help- Shotgun Plug- SBE II - TheGreat318 on 1/15/14 at 2:27 pm|
Got a new SBE II for Christmas. I've been a nova guy for years, but really like the way this thing shoots. Need to get a plug for it, but long story short, won't be able to get to the store to get one in the next 14 hours before I leave to hunt. Is a plug a plug a plug? Can I take the one out of ...
| Outdoor Board|| Anybody ever been scammed by an Outfitter/Guide? - TheGreat318 on 12/12/13 at 3:26 pm|
I'm drawing up a set of terms for the guide to agree to for a hunt in South Texas. I want to make sure that I am not being taken for a ride. I'm covering all the basics (the land is private, our group will be the only group hunting this ranch while we're there, you know there to be deer on the pro...
| Outdoor Board|| Temptation at its worst - TheGreat318 on 12/8/13 at 1:10 pm|
I'm stuck in traffic...and I mean stuck...on I-40 in Arkansas between Memphis and Little Rock, headed to the camp. Gone 4 miles in 90 min. It's cold and foggy as hell. I just so happen to be stuck next to a rice field that is loaded with snows and more landing every minute. Several groups I coul...
