re: Ducks Unlimited - Tigah D
I try to support both DU and Delta, both do good work in different ways, though from a financial standpoint, DU tends to have more capabilities to match grant funds, etc. If they care about ducks, I figure I may as well support the cause. ...

re: Teal Sightings - Tigah D
[quote]I have a flock of about 35 tame ducks on my pond. He was sitting on the edge in the grass. He flushed and landed about 20 feet away with the tame ducks. I could see the outline of his crescent plainly. As we kill about 250 teal in my blind each year, yes I can tell. Crescent was not white, wa...

re: What size trolling motor do I need? - Tigah D
On our second 22 ft bay boat now with the Minn Kota riptide (hand controlled) 80 lb thrust, 24 volt. Never have had a lack of power and never wished we had the 112 lb model. Didn't want to haul around a third friggin heavy-azz deep cycle battery under the console. Just my 2-cents. ...

re: Anyone use a decoy raft? - Tigah D
Met these guys at Sportsman Show back in March; likely could help some but it's not for me. When I scout birds on our lease they are scattered all about the ponds, not at all clustered when undisturbed. I set my dekes appropriately to make for a similar look.......they come on in readily and it ...

re: Teal Season 2017 Friday Start? - Tigah D
^ this. Pretty big fan of it, especially since we've had record low pre-season surveys in recent years......the masses of birds just aren't here on the 2nd weekend in Sept. Getting some reports of sightings, so time to get fired up! :nana:...

re: Shopping Bay Boats - What should i list my current boat for? (UPDATE) - Tigah D
Probably hard to go wrong with most of the brands mentioned here so far, though can't say the same for Epic. Have had two Nautic Stars and now in a sportsman, good boats for the money. I'd hunt around in the used market bc 30K just isn't going to happen for 22-24 new. And definitely don't jum...
