re: Crawfish farmers got their wish. - tcomea3
I'm not one to be confrontational, but the reality is farmers have a commodity that is well liked and therefore always has a demand. If you could make more money for less quantity every person in their right mind would do it; unless you are just stupid when it comes to business. Farmers are just li...

re: Let's Talk About Floating Blinds on 55 Gal Drums - tcomea3
It is holding up really well!! No complaints.. We have added a few things since that pic but nothing extravagant.. New roof and supports bc the old sheets warped (expected) and built in a dog ramp out of the front on hinges.. Here is a pic of it brushed and with the new dog ramp. [img]http://i680...

re: Let's Talk About Floating Blinds on 55 Gal Drums - tcomea3
Here is one a friend and I designed and built.. It has 6 55 gallon drums.. The two upright barrels are partially filled to act as a counterbalance for the weight when we are in the blind.

re: Bayou Francois (Sorrento) and Pumping Station Fishing - tcomea3
I'm not sure but i would think it has something to do with flood control.. During storms you would close the boat channel and still be able to pump from the Gonzalez/St. Amant side into the lake.. This is all considering that the lake would be relatively high because of storm surge....

re: Will there be a OB waterfowl shoot out this year? - tcomea3
I'll make a suggestion.. Do the different points for better birds; however, make it a best of XX hunts for each hunter.. Meaning a hunter could hunt all 60 days in a season but you would only take the top 10 (assuming this is the number) hunts to calculate the total points for that person on that ...

re: Where are the wood ducks and why do I now have teal? - tcomea3
It depends on how much you hunt it as well.. If you hunt a wood duck hole more than a couple of times a year they will abandon it and never use it again.. Hope that isn't the case for you......

re: New duck blind thoughts? - tcomea3
I am planning on filling them With water about 15-20 gallons full so that I have more equalization stability when we we put a lot of weight on the front of the blind.. It will also help on resistance on that part of the structure when I am towing it. Agree? ...

re: New duck blind thoughts? - tcomea3
I'm using multiple 2-1/2" decking (with rust/corrosion resistant coating) for all the joints. I may use bolts where the back end of the boat she'd meets the barrel supports because that will definitely be the biggest moment on the structural support portion.. And where I plan on putting the blind...

re: New duck blind thoughts? - tcomea3
Yep!! In the software we have accounted for the barrels to support the wood weight... Each 55 gallon drum will support 8.34lb/gal therefore approximately 450lb per barrel... We only plan on putting 4 people MAX in there so figure 1000 pounds with gear and the software we have give us the weigh...

re: New duck blind thoughts? - tcomea3
Thanks for all the tips and advice!! I will be tying it up/down to trees for stability purposes.. Probably going to move the dog ramp to the front of the blind. And we are planning to fill the rear upright barrels a portion of the way (maybe 1/3) to add weight (to the back end) for more stability...

Well I didn't realize this place had as many ducks as it does... I have been bank hunting and we have killed over 50 birds so I think with the blind addition we will kill a good amount of birds next season......
