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...

re: Goose hunt guide SWLA - Tigah D
I'm a fan of Doug's, go every year for marsh hunts. For what you are looking for, though, with a group I'd say Goose Guides Inc. since they hunt rag spreads in layouts. Erik Rue doesn't do that, that I'm aware of, and Doug's doesn't typically either. GGI specializes in group hunts like that...

re: is there a more formidable offshore fishing machine than the Freeman 34 ? - Tigah D
Yea I was gonna say only thing badder would be the 37 or the 42. Been seeing updates on the new JJ boat on instagram, think it's out the molds now. We'd all want to say "man how can I get in on one of those fishing trips?" but doubt many could afford their share of the fuel bill :lol:...

re: A Good light bar for ATV... - Tigah D
[quote] I cut into my bikes high beam wires so that the led bar comes on when I turn on the high beams.[/quote] Like that idea. May look into it sometime; would be good to shine the lights out on the pond to help with deke setup, blind brushing, etc. in the dark...

re: While we're playing the duck identification game... - Tigah D
Go hunt shorelines of lake borgne or Pontchartrain.....all the buffleheads you can stand and no one around for miles. Some folks from the great white north would cut an arm off to have the diver hunting we have in S La and we mostly could not care less :lol:...

re: Duck Hunting Open Water Field - Tigah D
If water isn't too deep, I'd go with speck full bodies. Quality dekes makes a difference. Also, even if water is too deep for full body stakes, you can use PVC pipes to sort of extend them. The birds don't know it's too deep to be feeding/walking around. Have seen lots of geese killed over full body...
