Man that gets me fired up! Where are you hunting? I know some parts of the midwest opened yesterday, like SW Kansas, OK panhandle, etc... Zone 1 opener in Oklahoma is only 2 Saturdays from now. Can't wait!...

re: Is this normal for Sherburne/Public land in general? - The Last Coco
Without knowing more about how far in you were and what exactly transpired, I don't have any problem with what he did. If he scouted and had a place in mind to hunt, he is going to hunt that spot as well he should. If he didn't intentionally mess up your hunt, he likely had no idea where you were ex...

re: Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - The Last Coco
[quote]If the run is short[/quote] Am I concerned about the run from that old time switch to the garage or from the incoming power fuse box to the garage? Because if it's the latter, the run could easily be 60'. And here are the 3 fuse boxes that handle everything. Not exactly sure where the gar...

re: Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - The Last Coco
[img]https://i.imgur.com/9Nsa1XC.jpg[/img] This is the switch that controls the power to the garage. And fwiw, the wire headed out to the garage (out the bottom of the switch) is at least 12 ga, maybe 10 ga....

re: Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - The Last Coco
The line heading to the basement has its own dedicated switch and fuses. And regarding voltage drop - when I run the blower the other plug in the outlet drops to 95V from 120V If voltage drop is my problem - what's the solution?...

re: Land For Lease near Shreveport/bossier - The Last Coco
What's your budget? Might look into east Texas too. There's a lot of land that way worth considering. But based on what you describe, you're chasing a unicorn. Everyone wants that. If you're willing to expand your driving range or can find some others to go in to find a bigger tract of land, you ...

Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - The Last Coco
Alright OB - I need your electrical knowledge. Here's the situation: I've got a garage/shed that has power running to it. I've recently replaced the lone outlet in the garage but the problem I was having before remains: I have 120V at the outlet but tools (leaf blower, mitre saw, etc...) that I p...

re: Waterproof, cold weather hunting boots - insulated knee high rubber or 8" lace-ups? - The Last Coco
[quote]What socks are you wearing? Could be warm from the walk, then cold when you're sitting because your feet are sweating during the walk. My mucks are awesome. Merino Wool socks and my feet are always warm.[/quote] I wear alpaca wool socks so that's not the issue. It's the uninsulated boo...

Waterproof, cold weather hunting boots - insulated knee high rubber or 8" lace-ups? - The Last Coco
I need to get some waterproof, cold-weather hunting boots and can't decide between knee high rubber boots (like lacrosse, muck, etc...) or 8" lace-ups (like Danner, Irish Setter, etc...). Mostly for deer hunting in central OK. 1.5 mile walk to the stand, but not actively stalking and multi day backp...

re: Why is baiting most game illegal except for deer? - The Last Coco
Hunting corn piles/feeders, food plots and cut corn fields are no different to me than hunting the hot oak tree. You're hunting a food source. And as mentioned, big bucks are rarely killed on corn piles. The reason why it's legal for deer and not ducks, is that ducks are migratory, going great d...

re: Best time to get in the woods for an evening hunt? - The Last Coco
[quote]is it foolish to even try and get in the woods if I can't get there until around 5. [/quote] Not at all. Hunt when you can. The more hours in the stand, the better your chance of seeing and killing a deer. One of my hunting padnuhs regularly heads out to sit for a couple of hours here and...

re: Shot a deer today with rage broadhead made good shot seer didn't go more than 100 yards - The Last Coco
It's not an issue with the broadhead, it's an issue with shot placement and angle of entry in all likelihood. And I've only shot fixed blade for years fwiw. I have had very similar results shooting Magnus Stinger Buzzcuts. Hell I've had complete a pass through that we never found a speck of blood f...

re: H20 Xpress from Academy - The Last Coco
Their rods and hard body baits with VMC hooks are very good. I have a 7'1" ML/XF spinning rod in the ethos line that is awesome for wacky finesse worms and drop shots. Even makes a good deep jigging rod for slabs. No clue who makes them though....

re: Duck/Fishing Boat Advice - The Last Coco
War Eagle boats have a good reputation. My good friend has a smaller version with a side console that we do a good but of hunting and fishing from. It's a well built boat. It's a 2003 I think and the boat itself has had 0 issues. All the wiring it still good and the hull hasn't had any issues whatso...
