re: How do you use Hess in tournament play - tomcatrav
Agree that it would be nice to have a fourth starter, but I think it's more critical to win the first couple of games . if we can get two tourney wins we should have pretty much locked up a national seed . I use him the first time we need outs in a critical situation and let the chips fall where th...

re: How do you fix a shotgun that shoots high? - tomcatrav
A little different thought here. I am by no means an expert on proper stock length and comb height, and shotgun fit. I patterned my browning 10 gauge and Sbe2 12 gauge for turkeys a few weeks ago and I was consistently missing high. What I eventually figured out is that the longer/harder t...

re: Best Shotgun load for turkeys - tomcatrav
Shot one this past weekend with hevi shot triple beard. It got it done. (Mix of 5/6/7's). I honestly think the choke matters more than the load though. But I am a relative newbie to this turkey game. I am hooked though. ...

re: Ot docs and smart people. Please help - tomcatrav
You 100% have nasal vestibulitis with cellulitis. (I take care of noses for a living). Almost certainly MRSA. Stop messing with it unless you see an obvious head that you can pop and let it drain. While bad things can result from these (cavernous sinus thrombosis, etc), they are 1/100000...

re: Obama's vacations cost taxpayers between $85M-$96M - tomcatrav
So obamas 2 week Hawaiian vacation in 2016 cost 4.8 million and 3 weekends in Florida cost 9 million for trump. I seriously doubt these numbers are accurate and unbiased. But if they are accurate, it surely pisses this libertarian off. ...

re: Houma/Thibodaux - tomcatrav
Grew up in Thibodaux. Live in Thibodaux. Work in Thibodaux and Houma. You can't go wrong with either. Thibodaux is a lot smaller and feels more "small town" than houma does. Thibodaux has less options for schools, less things to do, but this is improving. Houses probably significantly more exp...

re: Soybeans thru a spin feeder, thoughts... - tomcatrav
I'm purchasing a boss buck combo feeder (gravity and spin) , and my thought is to use it as spin (which my deer are used to) for a few weeks to get em coming and then switch to gravity. From what I hear it's a process getting em trained to eat the protein, and I should start with a mix of protein a...

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...
