re: Got a nice swamp buck this weekend! (updated with pics) - tomcatrav
My experience is that deer don't mind water at all, but they almost always choose the driest route from point a to point b. Any elevation change in the swamp tends to channel deer (ankle deep or knee deep can be a big difference). Also, deer will find a dry spot to bed down in that's surrounde...

re: Sitka hunting gear - tomcatrav
I have gotten a good bit of Sitka gear over the last few years. It's light years ahead of anything else I've work. Heard good things about kuiu , but can't give you any specifics. I would recommend getting all three core base layers (heavy, medium, light). I also have the fanatic lite jacket...

re: La Tour Golf Club in Mathews LA - tomcatrav
Disagree. Atchafalaya, while having a great layout (better than most courses in LA in this dept), is in marginal-bad condition more than 1/2 the year. The greens are sometimes ok and frequently bad. La Tour, while not the most interesting layout, is immaculate. And the greens are top 10 i...

re: Any good advice for beginner bowhunting and shooting? - tomcatrav
I would strongly advise you to not deal with cabelas or bass pro for archery equipment unless you have specific recommendations or knowledge about the employee you are working with. Buying and setting up a bow is not like a gun, and the help of an EXPERT bow technician with LOTS of experience is wo...

The irony of the left's protesting of Trump - tomcatrav
The left has spent every waking moment trying to concentrate power in the fedgov and (recently) with a major focus on increasing the power and scope of the executive branch while ignoring the rule of law. Now that they don't like who is in power, they protest that he has (according to them) this...
