re: Robo ducks/pros and cons - CharleyLake
I am a guest but the blind owner wants to set up three of them from a boat in the dark each day. I think he has had success and overvalues their effectiveness. Just like an argumement not to use. ...

re: How many of you guys left your plant job and what did you go do? - CharleyLake
Interesting that I share your philosophy and did what you are doing. I had a little radio for the Tiger games. My operations work was going to be interrupted by the draft so I hung up the blue jeans and joined the Marines. GI bill to McNeese and on to work as an offshore mud engineer for a short tim...

re: Who remembers the point system for ducks? - CharleyLake
I went inaugral point day on a (my first) guided hunt in Cameron Parish at the Hoffpauir camp near the Gibbstown Bridge. I think that the point system started in 1976. I left the regs and a Louisiana Conservationist Magazine with great photos back at the camp. Scaups(do gris) were 10 points but ring...

re: Remington 1100 and steel shot ? - CharleyLake
I bought my 1100 in 1971. I thought it to be reliable because I previously used a Model 12 20 guage. Last season was the first time that I duck hunted in several years. I simply did not have the range of the other hunters and did not attempt pass shots. The folks at Gator Guns in Sulphur, LA told me...

re: delete - CharleyLake
After hunting in the Johnson Bayou area for several seasons my cousin picked up a CPSB five-year lease last year for a parcel in Grand Chenier south of the highway. I know he paid a handsome price. Teal season and the first split were productive but it held too much water at the end of the season to...

re: Pipeline Right of Way and Servitude agreements - CharleyLake
Just for what its worth, my cousin signed the agreement for a pipeline ROW and Servitude near Sulphur, LA for a ten-year term with renewable options based on the cost of living index. The easement is defined as the width of the pipe and a thirty foot of temporary work space was granted. The diameter...

re: Pipeline Right of Way and Servitude agreements - CharleyLake
sneakytiger,rodnreeel, Thank you very much for your guidance. The link was very informative. Yesterday my tax prepared told me that Louisiana is an eminent domain state but the product in the pipeline may not qualify it for being a common carrier. He did give me a name of a client from Sulphur wh...

re: Pipeline Right of Way and Servitude agreements - CharleyLake
The diameter of the pipe is 24" and the pipe is to be buried 36". It is earmarked for the Sasol NA expansion. The proposed route is not expected to be surveyed until next week and the land agent emphasized that the route is only proposed at this time. I located the owner of the contiguous propert...

Pipeline Right of Way and Servitude agreements - CharleyLake
Do any of you know the what landowners are currently getting for price per rod in Southwest Louisiana for proposed pipeline construction? All of the recent agreements that I have researched at the Calcasieu Parish Courthouse only show "$100.00 and other valuable consideration." ...

re: Dice (craps) question - CharleyLake
A very good book to learn about craps and the math involved with the game is Advanced Craps by John Patrick. He is a big advocate of hedge bets. My favorite hedge is with the Don't Pass. Put a buck on the hardways 6 or 8 and if it hits take $10 and down. You have six ways to win and now only fou...

re: Help Me Choose a New Duck Gun - CharleyLake
For one hunt I used my 1982 Browning BSS. I prefer to use a semi-automatic with the 2 3/4". This 3" double barrel will hit the longer shots but it is gotten a wee bit heavy for me as I have aged. A Vinci model ? I will compare. Thanks for the guidance....
