[quote]That's upwards of 8 billion crawfish IF every pound was 40 crawfish[/quote] I’d guess at least 2-3 times that number aren’t harvested. So probably somewhere around 25 billion would be my guess. But who really knows? That’s like trying to guess the number of gar fish in the state lol ...

[quote]Rough Earth Snake[/quote] Interesting, I didn’t know about these until your post. However, if you look at the snake in his picture you can see the lighter colored line running down its back. Dekays have that line, and looking at pictures of the rough earth snake, it doesn’t look like they ...

[quote]If you practice with red dot, it will be faster on target acquisition[/quote] I picked up my 43x a couple days ago and had a trijicon rmrcc installed. I’ve never owned a handgun with a red dot so it’s taking some getting used to. I plan on hitting the range as much as possible between now ...

Light on EDC pistol

Posted by A_bear on 4/6/24 at 5:25 pm
Are y’all putting lights on your edc pistols? I’ve never had a light on any of my pistols but a few guys I’ve talked to said it’s a must have for them. Seems bulky and like it would make a lightweight gun heavy. I’ve been shopping around for a Glock 43x. I want the MOS model because I plan to put ...

[quote]academy usually has awesome prices in general[/quote] A few years back when the keltec pmr’s came out, I wanted one and all the gun stores in the area had them marked up to around $650. I called academy and they had one for $350. I told the guy when I was buying it that everyone else had t...

No help on how to get rid of them, just came to say I’ve noticed the gnats are way worse this year too. I went fishing yesterday and couldn’t keep them off of me. In the past the skin so soft bug guard has worked, but seemed like they were unbothered by it. I even doubled down with the gnat spray th...
[quote]Drop the arse end 2" to level it.[/quote] This is the answer. I have a Silverado 2500hd. I hate the way they look stock, and I didn’t want to spend thousands to lift/level it correctly. So I dropped the back 2” and put 35’s. It sits level, still gets over 20mpg (tuned/deleted), and my front...

re: 24 Pitch Prop To A 22 Pitch Prop

Posted by A_bear on 3/27/24 at 12:43 pm
I gained about 3-4mph going from a 21 pitch to a 23 pitch, and my boat runs more level with the 23. It lifts the stern more than the 21 pitch. It’s not a huge difference though. That 22 will be fine for a backup. You might not even notice the difference unless you run your boat wide open like I do l...
I have an outlander with power steering and after having it, I’ll never own another 4 wheeler without it. Definitely go the power steering route. You’ll never regret that decision. My trailer is a 5x10 I believe. It’s the perfect size for 1 bike, small and light. I can move it around the yard by h...

re: School Me on Surface Drives

I had a 37hp gatortail on a prodigy boat that I ran for 4 years. I swapped it out for an outboard because I used my boat for fishing way more than I used it for hunting. Other than being slow, I loved my gatortail though. I didn’t want a motor that didn’t have instant reverse. Also, the fact that it...

re: Bussey brake trip

Posted by A_bear on 3/18/24 at 8:33 pm
I made the trip. Got up here around 7am, there was about 4 trucks in the parking lot. I only saw a handful of people all day. First fish was about 2lbs (over 16”), second was about 3lbs, first fish was released. 3rd fish about 4lbs, second fish was released. *only keeping 1 over 16” in my livewell* ...

Bussey brake trip

Posted by A_bear on 3/16/24 at 5:53 am
Heading to Bussey early Monday morning, hoping to get there around daylight. I’ve never been, so just kind of wondering what to expect. Looks like a cool front will be coming through Monday and Tuesday, so hopefully that doesn’t affect water temp too much. I rigged up a 5/8oz flipping rod for flip...
