re: Landscape Architect Recommendations-Baton Rouge Area - Tigah D
[quote]the idea of having detailed plans for getting multiple bids on the build.[/quote] Yea that would be ideal, but from my recent experiences the architect isn't going to part with those drawings for you to shop around his design, unless you pay big $$ for those drawings. Whereas, if you just ...

re: Hunnington Farms Golden Retrievers - Tigah D
My golden that hunts. He's not winning any ribbons any time soon, and I blame it all on his lackluster trainer (me). But he picks up/finds almost every duck we put down. [img]http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j79/darrenmdigby/IMG_2026_zpssue5izuq.jpg[/img] [img]http://i77.photobucket.com/albu...

re: Nautic Star 224XTS - Tigah D
Many of them came with the jack plate to accommodate the 20" SHO short shaft because it initially didn't come in 25" shaft. That's a typical set up and should be great You can now get SHO motors in 25" as of a couple years back ...

re: Nautic Star 224XTS - Tigah D
Just sold ours but no complaints about it. Rode very well and topped out around 56 with the Yamaha F250 (the 3.3 liter model). It was a 2014 we bought new, catches fish good, kept us dry. ...

re: I can't find a single fault with Appetite for Destruction - Tigah D
Hung out a lot with an older cousin of mine around the time this album was released. I was only like 7 or 8 when he started playing it but it got me hooked early on to GNR. FWIW the book Watch You Bleed was an entertaining read on GNR's start....

re: WWII - Japanese garrisons stranded in by-passed territory - Tigah D
Just finished Killing Patton and now getting into Killing the Rising Sun. Obviously there were a frick ton of horrific atrocities throughout the two theaters but these frickers and their treatment of women (of all ages) I've found to be among the most disturbing. Hard to read it at times, really. ...

re: NOLA Boat Show reports? - Tigah D
Went yesterday kicking tires on a potential next boat. Having gone to this show for a long time but haven't been last few years, it's still by far the best way to get hands on about every major brand of bay boat around. No not the boutique builders but most that you see on the water. Wall to wall bo...

re: RedFish Line Setup? - Tigah D
I run the 30 lb power pro that's so popular with others, you really can't beat it. There are a fair many that like FinS braid as well but I've never tried it. Braid is no brainer on spinning rigs with the near zero line memory good luck fishin...

re: Picked up SBE 3 at lunch today - Tigah D
Those that think the benelli's "don't kick too bad" have never shot the same loads from a gas gun, it's nearly night and day difference, even with skeet loads. Yes, I own both, and it's not even close. Specifically, Beretta AL390/Beretta Xtrema2, Beretta A400 Xtreme vs. Benelli M2 or SBE In hunt...

re: East Zone closer Check In - Tigah D
Called it quits with a few days left, have had my share for the season. I haven't hit it this year but keep a close ear to the ground for Big Branch and there's been a good many birds killed, surprisingly in some of the most pressured areas of it too, of all places. Worth a shot though water could b...

re: Conservation Goose Hunt - Tigah D
Been seeing a frick ton of snows and specks between Whiteville/Bunkie areas last few weeks. Just awfully hard to kill many snows without a massive setup AND being where they want to be. Putting out 5,000 dekes doesn't guarantee anything ...

re: Best place to shoot sporting clays until Hunter's Run is back up? - Tigah D
Wasn't there a place near Denham/Walker? Never went but thought I saw it on some local TV shows or something in BR area. Edit: There's a couple of nice sporting clay facilities in Lafayette area, one is near airport. If you really like sporting clays, these places are far better than what Hunter...

re: Goose hunt guide SWLA - Tigah D
As some have alluded to, your odds of taking clients on a jam up snow goose massacre are actually fairly low down in our area. If that's what you have in mind and really want to have a chance of melting barrels on these new guns, arky or Missouri are best bets. You're probably best off doing fishing...
