re: is there a more formidable offshore fishing machine than the Freeman 34 ? - bayoudude
[quote] I used a 92 Viking as an example that he was wrong[/quote] So maybe it can but hell you could buy a fleet of freemans equipped with 7 marines for the price of a 92' sport fisher. Hell the 72 viking is north of $2 million new. I haven't fished off of a new sport fisher as all the ones i ha...

re: Alone season 3: Patagonia Season thread - bayoudude
He has the right idea with the bow. Make a blind and set up on a good trail and maybe even bait it with some fish guts while you are out there. Seems to be a shite load of hog sign out there and they probably aren't used to people so you should be able to get pretty close. ...

re: is there a more formidable offshore fishing machine than the Freeman 34 ? - bayoudude
Sad part is that a 33 Freeman has more fishing room than a 50+ ft sport fisher not to mention a 40knt cruise versus a 20 knt :lol: Give me a big center console over a sporty any day. Save the money from the sportfisher and buy a nice camp to come back to since you can run anywhere you want to fish o...

Ivar was one scary SOB in that chariot. The great heathen army definitely lived up to the billing when seeing them come over the hill and start screaming RAGNAR just wish we could have seen them devastate the band of English that came to meet them. ...

re: Thinking about packing it up and moving to the sticks... - bayoudude
Tried that route. Wife said if we are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars we are living there... I am not opposed to it just makes it a more difficult situation to pull off. I would be more than content buying unimproved land and using my 5th wheel on weekends. ...

[quote]If i were going to do it, it would have to be enough land for a couple people to hunt. Maybe 60+ acres AT LEAST.

re: Thinking about packing it up and moving to the sticks... - bayoudude
Yeah it started as just joking around but it is a very real possibility lately as the wife is definitely on board. The thought of having a few decent food plots and shooting deer, hogs and turkey off my own place in a nice quiet setting is getting more and more tempting. An average size fish pond is...

re: Thinking about packing it up and moving to the sticks... - bayoudude
We would definitely get them involved in 4H and whatever other recreational sports are offered. Only reason for the home schooling is that the elementary and middle schools where we are looking don't seem to have the best ratings but the high school looks much better. Could be a non-issue though as ...

Yeah it seems to run close to a $1000 more an acre vs the Prentiss area. Have a feeling it is due to the proximity to NOLA. Working with around a $400k budget if i do decide to relocate. ...

Thinking about packing it up and moving to the sticks... - bayoudude
The wife and I have been talking about how we would like to retire out in the sticks. The more i think about it why not do it now when i am still young enough to physically take care of a large piece of land and really enjoy the outdoors with the kids.
