re: Stolen Duck Decoys - BLM
Just start painting jugs of all shapes and sizes. They move so much better in the wind than decoys. Mix in some Seles and you're set. Always cracks me up to see mallards decoying into jugs. ...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
One other thing I didn't mention before. I know of a contractor that hired a company to basically badger an owner into oblivion when final payments weren't made at completion of a project. A guy from this company went everywhere the owner went...grocery store, church, country club, etc and made it k...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
Sounds like you've already had some communication with his subs. I'd get them on the phone asap to ask two important questions: have they been paid in full to date by your GC and will they complete the job directly for you if required. You don't have much work left to do so the risk is low in terms ...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
So there's no termination by owner language? If you don't know a construction attorney you should find one and get some advice after having them review your contract. You'd typically want to have termination language, stipulations on how and where to handle claims and a schedule with liquidated da...

re: My mentor and best work friend announced his retirement today - BLM
Nobody knows everything. You're obviously young. Mentors aren't necessarily people in your direct line of work. Figure out where you think you need to grow/learn and go find someone that excels in those areas. My guess is you'll be surprised and enriched by establishing a few of those relationships...

re: Advice on how to deal with a general contractor? - BLM
Contracts, contracts, contracts. What does the contract specify? What did you/he sign...something of his choosing that has no teeth? Really not much anybody can tell you without reviewing the contract. This won't get any better for you. ...

re: Fishing the lsu lakes - BLM
Used to put my little 14' Jon boat in there while I was in school in late 90's. Caught some 1-2# bass. Mainly throwing spinner baits and Texas rigged worms. Dumbass buddy of mine hooked a duck once...got him free though. Also can confirm deer caucuses were deposited in the lake from an adjacen...

re: Best things about Alexandria, La - BLM
I grew up in Pineville and gravitated PHS in mid 90's. Wonder if I know any of of y'all? Fond memories of the Pineville and Alex ladies. Was always fun having a couple on the hook across the river. Was a ton of fun growing up there and my folks still live in the same house. Enjoy going back to ...

re: Favorite Duck Call? - BLM
All 3 of mine are echo's at the moment...xlt, timber and their double reed. Xlt has been the most versatile call I've blown. Grew up blowing haydels but once I learned single reeds I stuck on echo. Two calls I want to try are the lares and a cut down olt. Have heard a lot of good things about them....

re: Tailgating the Auburn game - BLM
Auburn is pretty fun although much more tame than LSU. I've been quite a few times but I have buddies who went to auburn and we normally hang with them for the first half of the day. The game atmosphere is much better than the tailgating. Can't give any specifics on spots, but there will be LSU tail...

re: Duck, Teal, Dove hunting around BR - BLM
When I was in BR I did all my hunting in CENLA and Biloxi Marsh. BR is 1.5 hrs + from good duck hunting. The crowds are thick in the basin and I'm sure they're the same in the other direction. BR is probably the worst city in the state for proximity to good duck hunting. I never had any trouble w...

re: Construction Head Hunter - BLM

re: Would you rather live in Houston or ATL (as a young professional)? - BLM
Yeah, no doubt. We just moved back to Alpharetta. Crumbling...hahaha...thriving is the correct description. Houston's med center and the O&G industry are strong which makes sense if either of those are your deciding factor. Atlanta has a pretty strong medical community though. As others have ...
