After overbuying on decoys in 2008-2010 I'm looking at some of the newer models. Anybody have opinions on the Avian-X decoys that are out? The last time I bought GHG wasn't very established and G & H was the upper end of what was available. Curious how these Avian-X have held up for anybody who ow...View Topic - Replies (7)

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...View Topic - Replies (1)

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...

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 ...View Topic - Replies (1)

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. ...View Topic - Replies (1)

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'...View Topic - Replies (2)

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...View Topic - Replies (8)

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...

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...View Topic - Replies (6)
