re: Bow Hunting 101 - bigbuckdj
yeah, i guess im probably too comfortable with buying used stuff and i have a good understanding of what bows fit me.

re: Bow Hunting 101 - bigbuckdj
i say buy a used mathews from the switchback XT/drenalin/DXT era if you are spending your own money. I think those bows were very forgiving and tough. I had a DXT and absolutely loved it. Even if the draw length isnt right, a mathews dealer should be willing to swap cams with you. If you dont...

by similar math it may be better to take an interest only loan. I think its all about what you are comfortable with. [link=(http://www.clevelandhousingmarket.com/images/MortgagesAreNotBad.pdf)]Somebody sent me this link a while back, it gets to what you are getting at[/link]...

re: What size trolling motor do I need? - bigbuckdj
i have the rolled edge kenner which weighs less than a vision if that's what you have or seapickles frontier but I wouldn't hesitate to put the 80 pound. I hate having two trolling batteries in my boat Id really avoid three. Use your savings from not getting the extra batteries and larger trolling m...

re: What size trolling motor do I need? - bigbuckdj
I have a kenner 21v with a 24v 80 pound thrust 54" shaft. The only thing I would change would be I'd get a 60" shaft. I have an ipilot and I can't imagine not having it now that I got it. it hurts writing the check but it's a real game changer. ETA: the 54" is fine but if it's on anchor mode and ...

Big green egg parts - bigbuckdj
So I got the bottom and top of a large big green egg for free from a friend. The problem is, it has no hardware. I am into it for zero dollars right now, so I was hoping to find some used parts. I called a few dealers in the houston area and they said they didn't keep any of the old parts in stock. ...
