re: How often do y'all get checked? - speckledawg
Get checked fishing all the time around here. I've never had any problems and most just want to ask if we're catching and maybe a life jacket check. Have had a couple give my son a free ice cream card for wearing his life jacket. ...

re: Djibouti - speckledawg
I would do anything I could to avoid it. I've had a couple opportunities to be there (short term) for work and took a hard pass. I'm all for seeing new or unique places, but have heard nothing good from co-workers and customers. ETA: "The alternative is stayingbin Niamey, Niger." Holy shit...

re: 1st International Trip Question - speckledawg
I would take that 3hr layover at ORD. I actually like it there and that gives you plenty of time whether you get delayed or just need a few drinks before that long haul. I pick a similar connection often myself. ...

[quote] was under the impression that it gets in the soil/clay[/quote] Yes, and supposedly gets even tougher when binding to clay particles. My point was just that Norway was willing to do anything they thought would keep it from spreading. ...

re: 3rd CWD Case in Mississippi - speckledawg
Was actually just in Norway for a few weeks for work and we talked about this. The couple hunters I spoke with had no issue with taking any means necessary to "remove CWD". ...

re: 3rd CWD Case in Mississippi - speckledawg
Yeah, they talk about CJD and TSEs in general a lot in that show. It's pretty informative and enjoyable, but didn't make me feel any better :lol:...

re: Traveling Preference, do you have one? - speckledawg
Always fly United if possible, because I do for work and that helps with award reasons, lounges, etc. Really like doing early Aprilish Euro trips the last few years. Shoulder season for a lot of places and have managed some great flight deals at that time. Weather can be hit or miss, but we've...

re: 3rd CWD Case in Mississippi - speckledawg
The MeatEater podcast that discusses CWD with a wildlife guy is really good for anyone that is interested in this topic. No real conclusions, but basically reaffirmed what most of us know - no confirmed cases to humans yet, lots of people still eating them in infected areas, not enough info on the ...

re: 3rd CWD Case in Mississippi - speckledawg
[quote]I still have concerns even if I get my stuff sampled. What if the processor gets a CWD deer unknowingly. Could still I text your meat I think. And they don’t require health code permits like restaurants so I don’t even know if they’re regulated by anyone.[/quote] Exactly. They will get mi...

[quote]but in a hypothermia situation [/quote] Won't argue that, because I have no experience and hope to never be in that situation I have been dumped in the water a few times and been glad that I had a PFD on at the time. Everything seems easy to plan out until you get dumped (or punched in...

Belgium A5 Info - speckledawg
I've got a Belgium A5 Magnum 12 (Full choke* 32" barrel) that I'd like to shoot a few ducks/geese with, but I'm not sure what's safe. It sounds like steel is a for sure no go. What about bismuth or anything else? Anyone with personal experience. I'd hate to mess up this gun. ...
