re: 3.0" or 3.5" shotgun shells? - Tigah D
If you're not on the huskier end of a man's build, you might not shoot a whole lot of 3.5's out of that 870. Gun weight helps dampen recoil, of which an 870 is pretty light. Out of an auto it's no big deal, though. I'd say 3.5's good for late season birds that wont finish but day in and day out ...

re: Wader Brand - Tigah D
If you're in the market for breathable light waders, I've had really good luck with Cabelas waders made from their DryPlus material. Lacrosse Swampfox is similar material as well. To me these types are clutch for south La where it might be 75 for one hunt then 30 the next morning. I just wear wader ...

re: 9-10-16 IBT: Teal Opener - Tigah D
SE La public marsh, 3 blue wings on the strap, had chances to make it closer to 8 or so for sure with two of us but we were being extra cautious..... LOT of woodrows around. Took home three more than I expected and nice to shoot the gun If not for the survey results, no way I could believe these ...

re: Duck blinds - Tigah D
Just sittin' in the grass in a chair, me. Unfortunately, toured the hell out of my marsh stompin grounds yesterday. Zero teal seen. There's some fronts in the forecast for the weekend/next week so we'll see. I'll share the following that keeps me going regardless of scout trip sightings. ...

re: What's the 2nd most important factor in duck hunting success? - Tigah D
I took the OPs question more along the lines of what's important to success THAT DAY. Yes you need weather to bring birds, but you don't need "good" or "ducky" weather to hammer ducks. E.g. if you're on the X, they're going there regardless of the weather that day. I agree with many others here ...

re: ATV tires - Tigah D
Yea pretty much what's been said here. You'll do well with some 589's or Mudlites on there. I've got Mudlites in 26"X9" on front and 26"X10" on rear, though many go with the 12" wide versions on the rear end. Mine are on my stock rims on my Foreman 4WD. Buying them somewhere online probably your...

re: LA Golden Retriever Breeders - Tigah D
[quote]According to their website it looks like the breeder in Amite is charging over $1500 for pups. Does that sound right?[/quote] Probably so, we picked out ours in December 2014, picked up at end of January 2015. He was in a price hike at that time but we got grandfathered in to previous pric...

re: LA Golden Retriever Breeders - Tigah D
[quote]Hunnington farms is really the only breeder in Louisiana that breeds good looking pups[/quote] Would disagree there. Mine's from a breeder in Amite; never thought a dog could get so many street compliments. He's about 1 year, 9 months right now, will be 2 in early Dec. http://www.puppi...

re: Do you have Sea Tow? - Tigah D
I've had it for a few years, it's hard to beat. Thankfully never had to use it but all I've ever seen were rave reviews. Also the whole thing about it being good for me on my boat, as well as anyone using my boat, and also for any boat I'm on (if fishing with a buddy on their boat) is pretty awe...

re: Best price/quality 5x8 utility trailer? - Tigah D

re: Duck Leases - Tigah D
[quote]Thinking about how I want to hunt certain spots is more fun than thinking about what pros I want to book with on which weekend.[/quote] This for sure. I typically make a 2-day guided trip per year but it's just to see some different marshes and the hunting is usually strong. Other than tha...
