Any experiances with Dove hunt outfitters.
I am looking into a old college buddys trip for 6-8 guys to go on.
Not really concerned about north or south texas travel. Any Alabama, oklahoma great places. I am thinking texas bc of white winged and mourning doves present.
Also would like options in LA where i can take my 9 year old on his first hunt. Need lots of action to hopefully hit a few.
Guys I have a garmin montana 600 gps I have collected stand locations on it. How do i download the list of coordinates and more importantly make a map of the stand locations. There are tons of options. I have bought 2 and have not not found the features i am looking for. What do you use thats simple Thanks Southnboy@gmail.com
Anyone out there reload 20 gauge. \r\nLooking for maybe 9 shot in very low recoil.\r\nMy little Buddy is getting gun shy with his gun due to recoil.\r\n 8 year old 90 pounds. 870 express pump with the best packmayer recoil pad Jim\'s will custom install. \r\nI had some AA low recoil loads that were ok. 950 fps .\r\nNot bad for doves. Just want to build some confidence shooting some cans/ skeet.
Anyone know what the code is for logging flags. i am pretty sure we are about to get cut. The timber company has been walking around out there for a few weeks. no equipment yet but now they have flagged pink on the rt side of a club road in groups. These are short pink ones: 2 flags, then 3 flags, then 4 flags as you keep going down the road . there is one long pink flag... The other side of the road has a few orange flags every so often. I am just curious. I would like to avoid doing a bunch of pre season work in areas they may go harvest...This is in St. landry Parish. Just curious. .
Thanks so much
How do you keep your feet warm.
I wear rubber alpha burley lacross boots and tried
Several combos of thick and thin socks.
I cannot get my feet warm at all. Any best practices would be appreciated.
Hey guys I am heading to Illinois for a weeks worth of bow hunting. Any best practices, products, or brands that you find are light enough for bow hunting but very warm also. Lows expected in low 20 s the week I will be there
I have started to get massive headaches and I believe it to be coming from my Thermocell.
If I use my Thermocell I get headaches and never ever get them any other time.
I like to bow hunt out of a climber therefore the thermocell is typically places on my lower platform of the stand.. Yes I notice the smoke that does come up around me if there is no wind. I always understood that the smoke was harmless.. I ended my hunt 6:30 pm yesterday now 13 hours later I am still not feeling Right... Other than going back to bug spray. Any recommendations ..or has anyone else noticed this. thanks
Anyone know where i can find a front differential 2000 400 honda foreman . I understand the 450 up to 2003 can work also. i am not sure though. Trying to fix up a bike for my son.
I am new to the 25-06 family for hunting whitetail in Louisiana. I have been a 30 caliber guy for a long time. However I am making a move to 25-06. I do not have access to reload. I will be using factory ammo. Yes I know i need to shoot various types to find what the gun likes the most.
I need to start somewhere. i am thinking super performance SST and GameKings loaded in Federal Premium.
Please share success and hard hitting rounds as well as wounded animal, nightmare tracking jobs.
I need to start somewhere.
Anyone do ATV seat cover repairs or patches.. Have a L shaped tear. foam is fine. I have been holding it together with self stitching power pro 30 pound and some gorilla tape..
Anyone fix em better in baton rouge area. thanks
anyone else have a terrible time with food plots this year..i planted 4 days before a hard rain and 2 days before a light rain. shaded areas came up good.. 2nd week in October what came up was about 6 inches high.. Now it looks like the desert. Very little rain but has gotten some in the Palmetto area. I used way more seed than necessary to increase germination rates..It never got high or thick enough to choke out.... By now has all the seed rotted that did not come up..
Time to start over??? I have been afraid to fertalize since it never really established itself. Year after year my plots are great in this same spot.. Not this year.
I wanted to provide some personal experiance with the Remington Managed Recoil Rounds for .308.
I have a Remington Model seven in youth stock I sometimes use when hunting out of a climber stand. The guns size is great, it's small, compact, still a 30 caliber and has good range if I need it.
My daughter took her first deer last year with a snappy(Remington Model 700 short action) little borrowed .243 at 7 years old and can't wait for this years youth weekend. With good shot placement the deer still ran a good ways so I started the hunt for a 7mm-08 or .260 alternative.
I then also began to study ballistics for many small recoil rounds.
.243 does not have Manager Recoil
7mm.08, .260, .308 Do come in Manager Recoil. I would love to justify getting a new rifle in any of the listed calibers which are all fine light loads for deer hunting. Since, I have a .308 I decided to try out the ' Managed recoil' for it to maybe save me 900 or so bucks and to test.
I took it to the range this weekend and was well impressed. I first checked the scope with the normal Federal Premium 165 BTSP I normally use. I verified 0 with a nice group then wanted to test the manager recoil. '0' at 100 yards was right at 3 inches high of the previous group. This is fantastic in my opinion bc there is a variable of 125 grain bullets on Managed recoil(core lock). I will not let my daughter shoot over 100 yards but, I am impressed enough where I am very confident shooting it out 250 yards. I also Nailed together 2 pieces of 3/4 plywood with a 3rd piece behind it about a foot.. The shot entry punched through everything no problem with the 3rd piece having a slightly wided diamater hole than the original pieces.. This tells me Velocity is still great, bullet penetration is Great. I would have all the confidence in the world using the round as a primary round for hunting.
The recoil was reduced about 50 percent as advertised and was a noticable noise reduction also. I love the big hole that a .30 caliber punches, 125 grain is still plenty, groups well in my rifle, ballistics are still good down range, no need to adjust my scope for heavier rounds, reduction of Recoil and noise. I am impressed. This may serve as an alternative to buying a new $900 gun for your youth. I also think it can answer issues that shorter action,shorter barrel, lighter,and synthetic guns sometimes challenge shooters.
My father-in-law and I lost our Duck blind due to a property sale after leasing it 8 years. Would love to find something new in the Hwy 71 south area.(We have another deer lease in the area) Responsible weekend hunters ages 36 and 58.
Open to book some guided hunts in the same area. Capable of booking most all weekends.

Help me name the new puppy.
She is a fox red lab.
I have a Honda 2000 400 foreman and the Shocks are shot on them and need to be replaced.
I normally dont do much mechanic work but this looks easy. Any recomendations on good sites to order them from. I want to go ahead and order the parts so when I get time I can work on it. Also I have read where some people say the 450 shocks will work just fine also and will raise it up some since the shock is a little longer. That would be good since the older Foremans all need some lift. I have a 2 in lift on it now. Can someone confirm the 450 will work on front and rear or other good options when doing this yourself..
Thanks so very much,
It was a long day working then we ran into Captain Chris Callaway at the Venice Marina. We went out on a scouting trip just for the fun of it. 1 hour later we had a 5 man nice limit of Red Fish. We saw no oil. Just the corks getting dragged down. Thanks Captain Chris we had a BLAST.
Also thanks to Verizon for providing free internet services for anyone that wanted to use it.
Been looking at the Judge but not sure if I want the bigger heavier 3in model and have cheap easy access ammo or the smaller Public Defender model with the Hard to find 2 1/2 rounds.
Mostly a snake gun, Armidillo killer, side weapon until bow season opens. Hope to try on some doves while laying under a MOJO Dove...HA
Mostly gonna use shot shells.
With the past few years of very wet falls and winters my food plots have taken on a ft of water for a few days then hold a few inches for a while.. My plots have been coming up beautiful until the water comes in. i am looking for some more water resilient food plot plants to try. Come late november those pretty plots start holding water.
I use a combination of Oats, turnips, winter wheat, mustards, and clover now..
Anyone find anything that if it gets some growth on it before the water comes in will hold up for the season.
has anyone done any touch up work on Blueing on a barrel.
I have a small spot about the size of a pinkey print and at the end of the barrel where the blueing has come off. There is no rust the surfaces are clean. I have seen the marker and seen some stuff at academy just never used it before. I do know that cold blueing offers no protection just cosmetic. Has anyone done any touch up on the barrel before. Its on a rifle not a shotgun. Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks so much,
What are you seeing as the best scope for the dollar.
low end Leupolds are not what they used to be and looking through them are about the same as lowest end NIKON.
How about the Nikon 4200 or Monarch?
Is Burris any decent?
Looking to put on a 30-06. Its for a Back up weapon or for pipeline stands.
