re: Semi-auto shotguns: Gas vs Inertia - Tigah D
10-4; assumed the A400 Xtreme since it's the direct competitor to the others, not the non-Xtreme model, which would be more of a sporting model, similar to benelli's cordoba, montefeltro, etc. As an example of how it's not apples to apples, direct from beretta's website, the gun features "A shor...

re: Semi-auto shotguns: Gas vs Inertia - Tigah D
Have owned a few Beretta gas autos, and bought first Benelli (M2) three seasons ago. Do like the reduced recoil of the gas guns, yes, you can tell. But for hunting day in and day out, I like the simplicity of the inertia. Have an A400 that's been shelved since the M2 came home, would consider sellin...

re: State gives early OK To 2 -month ban on female crab catch - Tigah D
Everytime I'm down in Shell beach I pass by that place they process them to ship right by the Yscloskey bridge.........its just staggering to see how many go through there in one day. They do that 6 days a week, every week. And they toss the dead ones in the water, you can see huge crabs just floati...

re: Best value bay boats - Tigah D
Given that I've found simrad more user-friendly than my lowrance, and you can also get the E-Cards for Simrad just like Lowrance, not sure why one would go Lowrance over simrad. NEMA 2000 tie-in is sweet as well, think most GPS units do that these days...

re: Best value bay boats - Tigah D
Yea I'm not seeing anything "downside" about SIMRAD. Have had both; lowrance HDS7 on last bay boat (nautic star), SIMRAD EVO 12 on Sportsman. Like the simrad a whole lot more from my experience, spending time in 2 nautic stars and now one sportsman masters 227, they are fairly comparable, though ...

re: When is it safe to hunt your pup? (Gator Related) - Tigah D
Good looking hound, congrats. You might still bring him and just take a teal season approach with him. Kept close to you, leashed if you have to. Use him and his NOSE to find birds fallen in the marsh grass but take him there yourself. Mine hunts teal season on these rules unless I'm hunting som...

re: Good duck hunting segment on Paradise Louisiana - Tigah D
Thanks for sharing, had missed last week's episode. Larry always very informative with the hunting public. Interesting that the tentative conclusion on teal season seemed that maybe we missed the birds by hunting too late, for once. Counting down rest of this week to CZ opener :nana:...

Go-Pro Knockoff for Hunting/Fishing - Tigah D
Anyone have experience with non-GoPro brand cameras for hunting and fishing? Know the other companies have been catching up for a while, but is it worth going with one of these rather than taking the plunge $$$ for GoPro? Just looking for something to keep in my pocket during hunting and fishing...

I try to support both DU and Delta, both do good work in different ways, though from a financial standpoint, DU tends to have more capabilities to match grant funds, etc. If they care about ducks, I figure I may as well support the cause. ...
