Can someone tell me where Mud Lake is around Slidell? I've heard it mentioned before, but have never seen it listed on any maps I've looked at.

Spent 4 hours on the Pearl yesterday, without even a bite to show for it.......
Mouth wasn't right, I guess......

Thinking of trying to convert my 25 hp tiller to steering wheel. I would need to add a small console to attach steering wheel.
Anyone ever done this?? Is it that difficult??
The motor has the steering 'tube' where the cables would attach.

I recently saw a Primos Hog Grunt call in a local shop.
Do any of you guys use one?? Have you ever 'called' one in??

I was thinking of picking one up for at least having for those instances of when walking through woods/swamp may not be as quiet as I'd like....I figured a little grunt or two might put anything at ease that may have been within earshot, and got on 'high alert'...
What y'all think???

I have been shooting my bow, but not getting consistent results. I have shot a bow for years, not a newbie. My bow is 2 years old, bought it new.
One day I go out and can keep 2' groups on the bullseye from 20 yards. But the last 2 days, I am hitting 4' to 8' to the right. I have not done anything different with my bow or arrows. I am shooting the Rage practice tips.
I did notice on a couple of shots yesterday, I could hear the arrow flight much more pronounced.
Like a 'FFFFTTTTT Thump' It almost sounded like it was wobbling in flight or flying at an angle or something. I have a Hostage rest with the 'brush' that the arrow rests on. I can't tell that the arrow is NOT coming off the bow clean, but I can't quite figure this out.
Anyone have any suggestions......even the obvious...
With the inconsistencies right now, I can't hunt with it til I get this straight.

I'll second that Bushnell.....

You're gonna love shooting that gun!!! I definitely bring mine sometimes during gun season, leave the bolt action at home.

My 12 yr old has experienced on a couple of times, a screech owl fire off over his head before sunup. I can't help but laugh, watching that flashlight dancing in those treetops.....

A comment titled: Finally shooting straight again.... in response to a report titled: Is this just me??

Humbly,maybe someone else can learn as well...
Took it to the shop Saturday, made sure everything was aligned and tightened correctly.
Turns out it was probably more 'operator error', than anything else. Apparently after having not shot in a while, I was palming the bow more than necessary, just enough to torque it out.
As frustrating as it is, trying my best to make good shots in practice, it took an experienced set of eyes to solve my problem. I guess it is hard to watch your own form...

Brad, you are absolutely time I won't be so quick to look for the 'quick fix' and assume it had to be the equipment.

A comment titled: 444 Handi Rifle in response to a report titled: 444 Handi Rifle

I bought one before last season. Went with the 444 instead of the 45/70 after looking at ballistics. I absolutely love mine. I've used it during rifle season instead of the .270. Fun gun to shoot. You will not regret it!

A comment titled: Ruger in response to a report titled: ruger m77 advice

I have a M77 that I have owned for about 20 years, although it is in .270. That is my "go to" gun above all others. I have several other newer, more expensive rifles that get left behind much more often than my Ruger. And I bought it used way back then.
Buy it and don't look back.

I've got a Garmin Legend also that came with a very weak base map. I purchased Garmin's 2008 TOPO software and installed it. Very well worth it. I now couldn't get lost if I tried. Very well detailed and labeled, for land or water. Cost was about $100, and you also have it installed on a computer. Makes it easy to organize and label waypoints and create routes.
Check it out, sounds like what you are looking for.

A comment titled: No issues in response to a report titled: Boycotting Academy

I've got a DUI from about 8 years ago and the occasional speeding ticket. I've bout a rifle from Ken's in Slidell, a shotgun at Academy, and a handgun from Slidell Arms. Not one time did I not walk out with my gun. Again, I don't have a crystal clear record, but it is nothing violent or felonies. Just stupid stuff that were very costly.
Regardless, it never even slowed me up from buying firearms.....fortunately.
