Haven't fished on Toledo in a few years and looking to head that way this fall/winter a time or two. Lake looks like it's back up to 168' and holding. With the low levels the last couple of years is there a lot of grass and vegetation underwater again? Anybody been on the North end of the lake l...
| Money Talk|| GMXR Chapter 11 - First of many? - TigerDog83 on 4/2/13 at 12:18 pm|
Saw where GMX Resources has recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It makes me wonder if this is the first domino to fall for heavily weighted natural gas producers. I am speculating that some other companies could be in trouble if the low gas prices persist, including some big names...
| Outdoor Board|| Biometric Gun Safes - TigerDog83 on 1/17/13 at 11:03 am|
Anyone here recommend a biometric gun safe? Need one for a 9mm Glock for bedside table and quick access. It looks like Gunvault is the standard or at least that's what I have found looking around. Academy had the biometric ones for much less than anywhere I've looked but they are so much cheaper ...

Anyone here have an Avery Finisher blind? I've had mine for five years and had several major issues including a near total frame collapse last week. I'm wondering if anyone else has had all the broken brackets and problems or if I just drew a bad straw when I ordered mine originally. ...
| Outdoor Board|| M1A - TigerDog83 on 12/17/12 at 9:11 am|
I know this thread was floating around last week, but does anyone here have opinions on the different M1A packages? I can get two brand new in the box M1A national matches for $1,900 a piece today. Would this be considered a good deal on this gun? I really prefer the .308 to the .223 myself so I'...
| Tiger Rant|| 3rd down on last LSU offensive series - TigerDog83 on 11/4/12 at 6:39 pm|
I know that this is a tough call, but how many people would have risked passing for the first down here instead of rushing into a loaded box? I realize that you try the run to bleed clock and don't want them to have more time, but if you pick up a first down it's over. Mettenberger was in sync and...
| Outdoor Board|| Full Body Mallards - TigerDog83 on 11/1/12 at 2:52 pm|
Anybody bought any full body mallard decoys recently? Any issues with the new GHG paint? I have some older GHG full bodies that have held up well but have heard some guys not happy with the newer ones. Looking for feedback on it....

Saw where Joe's was closed again in Livonia, this time I assume for good? Didn't see anything about this around and wondered if anyone had any intel on what happened this time around? ...
| O-T Lounge|| Alexandria, LA - TigerDog83 on 10/6/12 at 8:10 pm|
Have to say last week staying here for work was the first time I've ever spent any time in Alexandria other than stopping for gas passing through off I-49. I am shocked at how little there is here and how run down and dejected most of this city looks. Was it the loss of the airbase that caused thi...

| Tiger Rant|| Lack of Hitting Adjustments - TigerDog83 on 6/9/12 at 2:36 pm|
Anybody have explanations for why our hitters never change their approach at the plate? We get pitched outside by a pitcher with more movement and craft than velocity and still try to pull the ball down the lines or swing for the fence. The result today was a pile of lazy pop ups or routine ground...
| Outdoor Board|| Glock Magazines - TigerDog83 on 4/25/12 at 7:47 am|
Anyone here recently purchased any magazines for a Glock 19? I'm looking to pick up a few more for mine and want to see if anybody has any favorites they use and what capacities are available. The reviews I've seen for some of the different makes are mixed. ...

Searched and didn't see this posted yet. Ed Markey has introduced some bills attempting to prohibit US companies from exporting natural gas to other markets. How is this not governmental price control or manipulation? We now have developed technology to extract so much gas the price has hit ten y...

| Outdoor Board|| Ducks in Hard Rain - TigerDog83 on 12/4/11 at 5:49 pm|
After a lackluster, wet morning today I got to looking at previous season results. I really can't remember more than a couple of good days in heavy rain. We have had good shoots in light rain, especially when it stops, but I can't really remember more than one or two good hunts in all my years in ...
| Outdoor Board|| Blind Side Ammo - TigerDog83 on 12/2/11 at 8:49 am|
Searched and didn't find any previous discussions on this. Has anybody shot the Winchester Blind Side ammo this season? I prefer 3" 1 3/8 oz #2 shot, and this seems like a way I can shoot this load with a higher speed than the usual Drylok I shoot. Looking for any reviews as I'm about to pick a c...
| Outdoor Board|| Waders - TigerDog83 on 11/27/11 at 10:04 pm|
Anybody bought a new pair of neoprene waders within the last year or two (i.e. the new models) and have any insight? Just had to retire a 8 year old pair of Lacrosse waders and going to pick up a new pair this week. Chest waders still holding good, so I'm looking at the waist highs since I mainly ...
| SEC Rant|| Arkansas showing Blitz - TigerDog83 on 11/25/11 at 11:08 pm|
Were the people complaining about running up the score watching the series in question? Arkansas ran everybody up to the LOS and showed an all out blitz two plays in a row. Why on earth would they not expect LSU to check out into a pass play in that situation? If they didn't want LSU to throw the...
| More Sports Board|| Playing for the win on the road - TigerDog83 on 11/13/11 at 6:30 pm|
Didn't see this covered on the board. The call by Patterson yesterday to go for two was a great move for the road team to make in that situation instead of going for overtime. Contrast that with Lane Kiffen a few weeks ago playing Stanford for overtime and eventually losing the game. I'm surprise...
| Political Talk|| Mississippi River Flooding - TigerDog83 on 4/29/11 at 9:32 am|
I can't believe this issue hasn't gotten more air time with the media. A judge has now apparently approved destroying a section of river levee to save the town of Cairo, illinois. A Missouri congressman has made some inflammatory remarks about the issue also. This could be a serious issue for the...
| Outdoor Board|| Possible Arctic Blast Next Week - TigerDog83 on 1/3/11 at 7:49 pm|
Anyone have any other sites out there showing this possible arctic blast? Ran across this earlier on a weather site showing a serious chance of a wicked Arctic event that could be brewing for the mid south, although I'm not a good enough weather geek to interpret some of this stuff.

| Political Talk|| GM cleanup - TigerDog83 on 5/19/10 at 8:29 am|
Didn't see this posted anywhere on the board yet. The administration proposes giving GM more money on top of what they still owe to clean up former facilities. I guess because GM isn't an oil company they aren't required to clean up their own mess.

Well isn't this an interesting turn of events. If true this is ironic considering that Mexico refused to pay Texas any money after the IXTOC 1 explosion. Perhaps even more so with Pemex being state owned.

The reaction by the Aggies has been embarrassing. All fan bases do it sometimes (McKnight) but they are going nuts over there. Anyone who knows the Fobbs family will attest that they are class acts and are well liked in the area. The whole fake fax thing appears to be some rumor started on one of...
