To this day his macaroni and cheese recipe is a fixture at Thanksgiving and Christmas in my home....

I have always like white In the spread weather jacks, cans, or weidgeon white helps them be seen. Who cares what species. We even use some drake spooners we bought cheap one year.

Saltgrass Outdoors, Patrick Dickinson, Lloyd Landry to name a few.
I can't speak for guides but I can tell you we killed limits on all 20 hunts we made down there this year, longest hunt we had was 1 hour 20 minutes and that ...

First off I'm biased towards Page...
However both are great. Slash is a little cleaner player.
However if starting a band it would be Page not only for his guitar talent, but all he brought to the table with production talent and creating new sounds. IMO he is way more innovative than Slash....

Whatever guide says he isn't killing in Venice this year doesn't know how to hunt and I'll leave it at that. I would do Venice without hesitation....

If you have some extra $$$ laying around look into Filson. They make quality stuff. The 3 in 1 jackets are nice I have one, however they are bulky. A good Filson coat blocks the wind and is warm. Wax them once a year and completely waterproof and will last for ever....
| Outdoor Board|| re: How to handle ducks that set down just beyond your spread? - Da Hammer on 11/25/13 at 2:26 pm|
Remember if it's gray ducks we are talking about they almost prefer open water to near a shore. I find it's almost natural for them to try and land away from the decoys/blind. Lots of calling to keep them up works sometimes, when it doesn't I shoot to get them up....

He frequented a camp that I get to hunt somewhat regularly. He was a truly great man, he will be missed by many.
At the same time all we can ask for in this world is to make a positive mark on it while we are here, from what I know of Eli he did just that....

Talk with Kengel2 he does quite a bit of long range shooting and helped me a lot.
There are a lot of good manufacturers out there. There are also a lot of gun smiths that can take components and make you quite a tack driver out to well beyond 700 yards.
