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...

re: Best waterfowl taxidermist within 2 hours of the northshore. - Tigah D
Have had two standing/preening mounts done by Kevin Hynes, both are very good. Knew david luke when he was in Mandeville and his work is outstanding, but think he's a bit more $$ and likely longer turnaround than Kevin......though Kevin ain't cheap either. Currently have a speck goose at Kev...

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 ...
