re: Assist me in choosing a boat - Athletix
[quote]If you plan to hunt and carry a pirogue, I'd definitely go aluminum. Hunting will be very hard on a fiberglass boat. [/quote] The boat will be used for transportation down the rivers. I'll carry pirogues and use them to work through all the nasty stuff. I've seen tons of boats with a coupl...

re: Assist me in choosing a boat - Athletix
I'm willing to spend 20ish if the right boat comes around. I'd love to be at 10-15k. 19ft at a minimum and 21ft is probably as big as I can afford. That's about as far as I got. I'm about 3-4 months away from a purchase, so I'm trying to get all the research I can in. What will you be using the b...

Assist me in choosing a boat - Athletix
I've started a few boat threads as the time has gotten closer to me making a purchase. I've shifted my interest into purchasing a bay boat. The versatility of a bay boat is intriguing. I originally wanted a surface drive, due to how much duck hunting I plan on using the boat for. However, being t...

re: Golden eye.. mount it? - Athletix
[quote]A "trophy" bird for South LA that came in and set in the decoys...hard to pass that up. [/quote] This shite has gotten twisted around. The drake in question was well out of my small decoys spread. My best guess is he was roughly 45 yards. I'd have to step it off but there was reason the 3 g...

re: Golden eye.. mount it? - Athletix
Back to what started all the hammering on fratigerguy... Are you taking a shot at a bird sitting on the water at over 40 yards? I'm all about letting ducks get in the decoys. Standing up to shoot normally gets the birds up and out of the decoys. Hell I don't shoot birds on the water that much bec...

re: Golden eye.. mount it? - Athletix
Talk me off the ledge please... 2 days ago I had 4 birds land 40-50 yards from me. Probably 40ish. 1 drake and 3 hens. It was earlier and I thought it was just a spoonbill. After deciding not to shoot due to the range, they flew off and I thought man that doesn't look right. I now realize what I pas...

Golden eye.. mount it? - Athletix
How rare of a kill is this golden eye hen. I've never heard of anyone killing one around here (south LA). Can I pick up a drake easily later in life to complete the mount? Should I just head north one day and pick up a pair? Whatcha think OB [img]https://s23.postimg.org/r57t0tfef/IMG_0124.jpg[/im...

re: Trying to kill a goose... - Athletix
So, finally got to shoot AT one today. My pit blind I hunt most faces south. I setup my 8 spec floaters north of the blind facing into the wind swimming towards my 6 full bodies which were amongst the tall rice about 50 yards from me. They worked good and a buddy with shitty calling got them to pass...

Trying to kill a goose... - Athletix
So, I'll take any advice you guys can give me.. A little background... Got into a new lease this year, and was told the geese come in thick later in the year. Well, I didn't expect multiple hundreds/thousands to be piling into the ponds in and around us. I have access to around 200 acres of crawf...

re: Destroyed phone - Athletix
Essentially what I did. Stopped on side of the road to check the ratchet strap I had on one of my bikes. It had popped... I used the phone as a flashlight, set it on the top of the tailgate to light the area. Got about 100 feet down the road and realized what happened. I wasn't going no more than 15...

Destroyed phone - Athletix
I have AT&T's mobile protection plan and have had it for over a year. I got a brand new iphone 7 three days ago, and I ran over it with my truck (on accident). Everything I read is that I have to make a claim online.. I rather try and replace the phone today. Has anyone made claims at an AT&T store?...

re: Tunnel hulls - Athletix
Commenting on this, because I'm soon to be in the market for a boat. 90% of the reason I want the boat is to hunt Venice and other coastal marshes. I know surface drives are a great option, the best option... However, I'm curious to hear from those who have hunted the shallow water marshes with tunn...

Choosing and Raising a retriever - Athletix
I did a search through the board, and didn't find a recent answer to my question. I'm sure it's been asked before, but it wouldn't hurt to go through again. I'm looking to add a puppy to the family. I have no kids and live in a small house with 20 or so unfenced acres she would be able to run aro...

re: Bow Hunting - had a fox at 20 yards - Athletix
Ive seen quite a few bobcats and foxes in the woods, and I've never pulled the trigger. I can't bring myself to do it. They aren't doing me or the game I hunt any harm... My old man hammered it into me about having a good reason to harvest an animal. Maybe I'm a puss, but I get that slight feeling o...
