We have 2. One up there and one in fourchon. Best of both worlds. I say "we" but I don't own any part in either of them. That's what family is for, right? I guess I have the best end of the deal. Fish whenever I want and give $20 for electricity :lol: once I get done with these shutdowns I'm going o...

Wow, when I was a kid I found a dog in the neighborhood. He was a black lab mix that I named blackie. He was abused and starved and I would bring him food everyday. Finally about a week of doing this he came up to me and let me pet him. He followed me home. My dad didn't want me having him along wit...

My uncle has a 4 wheel drive golf cart with some little ITPs on it. That thing is bad arse. It will make it around the 2,600 acre lease and go through anything (hunting wise at least) that a 4 wheeler will. We've snuck up on many of turkey in it. I've thought about getting one for my lease, but I lo...
