I'm trying to figure out charging times for a deep cycle battery with a solar charger. I'm using a Red Hot Momma deep cycle 12 volt battery with an 800 watt power inverter. Right now my barn has 3 lights, and it's only using 60 watts between the 3 lights. I want to add more light bulbs, maybe have a total of 10 lights that are using around 250 watts. I have a 5 watt solar charger that is constantly hooked up to the battery.

My question is if my battery is fully charged right now and I have 10 light bulbs using a total of 250 watts, how long can I use the lights tonight and will my battery be fully recharged by tomorrow night by using this 5 watt charger? Or do I need a larger charger?

I've been told there is a solar power battery charger for cuddebacks. I have been to their website and have googled it without finding anything. Does any one have information on this? thanks, Craig

I was wondering if there was a tire regulation on WMA's and Federal management areas on trucks? I have heard that there is one for ATV's but couldn't find anything on that or Vehicles.

The family and I are going to go camping at Indian Creek in the next 2 weeks(if spots are available) and I was wondering how to fish the lake. It will be me, the wife and my 3 young kids. No boat, just fishing from the bank. We don't care what kind of fish but would like to catch some. I may be able to bring a canoe if it will be the only way we catch fish, but would rather not pack it. Is it an easy lake to use crickets or worms to catch bream and catfish? Maybe some shiners for sacalait? Or should I just bring plenty of food and adult beverages to enjoy the place? Thanks for the input. Craig

I was wondering if anyone knew when the Mississippi River was going to drop? I'd like to fish Lake Mary and some other lakes around that area. Right now, the river in Natchez is at 40.5 feet and won't crest until 4/05. When does it normally get and stay around 30ft? Thanks, Craig

I recently had some dirt work done at my house and would like to plant some grass to grow. It's not great dirt, more like clay. What would be a good grass to grow? Its probably a little less than an acre, with a good bit of sun. I was thinking rye grass. What kind of fertilizer should I use? Thanks, Craig

Got me some cabelas gift cards burning a hole in my pocket and want to buy a set of real nice cold weather hunting gear. I'm interested in bibs and a jacket. Must be waterproof. I would like to hunt in temps in the teens and possibly only have a small layer of clothes under this and be comfortable. I've looked at the under armour and wool products. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about these products? Or any other brand that I haven't mentioned?

Thanks, cmacks

I have an old shed at the end of my driveway that seems to be right in the path of the watershed. Is there something I can put on the ground around the outside of the shed to keep the water from coming in? The water comes in from the front and sides and drains out the back of the shed. Any barrier I can put up or am I just SOL? Thanks Craig

Me and 6 or 7 guys are interested in doing a paid hunt in Texas this year. We are looking for a quantity not quality hunt. We aren't looking to kill huge deer. Maybe a management buck. We would like to kill hogs, javelina, does, predators and turkey. Not necessarily all. Bottom line is we like to shoot and have a good time. Does anyone have any recomedations or websites of places they know of? Thanks for the help, Craig

I have a 3.5 acre pond at my camp that we stocked with 4000 coppernose bream, 7000+ fat head minnows and 600 bass. We put in the bream and minnows about 8 months before the bass. All were fingerlings. This was 3 years ago. We used to catch some bass while fishing for bream on worms, crickets and some sacalait jigs. I don't think we have caught a bass in over a year. We have a bunch of frogs on the pond and never see bass breaking the water trying to eat anything. What would cause all the bass to die? Should I restock with larger bass? If so, how many and what size? Thanks Craig

If my 3 ton AC is pulling between 9000 and 15,000 watts starting up, and about 5000 watts running. How much will the starting and running watts lower if I used a 5-2-1 compressor saver? Thanks for the help. Craig

Got 2 quick questions about cooking a cochon de lait.

1- Does it matter what kind of wire I use to hold him in? Does it matter if its galvanized?

2- The pig will be about 70lbs. I'm assuming this will take around 8 hours. Am I close?

Thanks Craig

I took my oldest son on his first duck hunt. Clayton's 4 1/2. Hunted Friday afternoon, Sat morning and evening and Sunday morning. We had a blast. I think we ended up with 4 ringnecks, a couple of woodducks and a greenhead but it was fun. I realized 4 hunts in a row is too much for a kid his age. We would a been better off hunting 1 afternoon then the next morning but he managed to get through it. I probably shot 2 boxes of shells. He was having fun blowing the duck call thinking he was bringing them in on a string. Earlier in the year I took him on his first deer hunt, we had four does come out and he talked me into shooting one. When I shot the doe, she was the only one to run and the rest stayed looking around. He was telling me to shoot the others. But I managed to let them walk. Now he wants to go hunting every weekend. I can't wait till he can shoot a gun. I'll get him a 22 next year and let him practice shooting.

I was wondering if anyone has used Ivomec for their dogs. I have heard to give the dog 1/10cc per 10lbs. This would be 1/2cc for 50lbs. Can you give this to your dog if he is positive for heartworms or should they be clear of all worms before you start? I got the injectable ivomec but was told you could put the dose over their food. Any imput on this subject? Thanks Craig

I would like some comments on a boat. I have a 17 foot fiberglass boat that was given to me. I think I'm gonna try to turn it in to a duck boat. The motor is garbage so I will need to replace it. I don't want to spend much money on this being that I can find aluminum duck boats for $2500 with motor. My question is will a go-devil type motor be sufficient on this boat? I'm not sure of the weight or how low it sits in the water. I will only be using this boat in a small canal near my house and a lake about 300 acres. The main reason I'm thinking go-devil type motor is b/c I won't need to go fast and I think I can pick one up for around $1000 as opposed to an outboard. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks Craig

I just inherited an old fiberglass boat I think its 17-18 ft long. The motor is a 70hp thats on its last leg. If possible, I would like to make this a duck boat. Right now its white. I would like to paint it camo. Is there a special paint I should use, or do anything to the boat to make the paint stick? Also, what is the smallest motor I could use on this boat? Thanks for the comments. Craig

A comment titled: Nathan in response to a report titled: BEWARE Louisiana Hunters (Non-Residents) hunting in Mississippi

Jasper, I know this Nathan you speak of south of Natchez. Nice enough guy, thick enough glasses. I met him one afternoon talked with him for at least an hour. Told him I'd be back in the morning to hunt. He pulls me over and obviously had no idea he had met me the previous afternoon. I show him my DL and hunting license and go hunting. After the hunt, 2 hours later, he pulls me over again asking for the same stuff. I thought he was kidding. He was not.

I don't have a problem with you trying to save people money, but saying Bass Pro Robbed you. They offered a product at a price they are willing to sell it for. If you like it, buy it. If not, go elsewhere. You wanna see high prices? Look in the classifieds here. Guys trying to sell stuff for what they bought it for. I'm not knocking them, I just won't buy it.

Are you saying you don't agree with the concept of free market? Who cares what they charge? They get to make that decision, not you. Do you think every sporting goods store should sell that crossbow for the same price?

Sorry to hijack this thread, but speaking of all these different pet meds people use. Does anyone use that 1800petmeds that I see on TV? Is it really worth it?

A comment titled: .. in response to a report titled: HEARTWORMS

loupgarou, I never received your email. After reading all the post, I got another question. I have a 65lb lab and a 72lb BMC. I give both of them about .7cc of ivomec once a month. Never have mixed it with propylene glycol, I just pour it on top of their food. They gobble it up. I also have a 62lb lab that I give heartgard to. He was on revolution a year ago and got heartworms. Cant really afford to have them all on heartgard, so I picked one. The rest get ivomec. All have recently gotten negative heartworm tests. If my dosing is off with the 2 dogs should I change it, or keep it going the same? They are doing fine the way it is.

May 06, 2010 at 9:17am
A comment titled: ?? in response to a report titled: HEARTWORMS

Loupgarou, I know you can't recomment ivomec... but I'm confused about your dosing. If I measure in cc's, how does that measure in mls? Assuming I measure .7cc's for a dog weighing 72lbs. Is this the right calculation according to the .27mls?

Bull, I understand your point of an elevated stand for safety issues, but how in the world would someone enforce that??? I'm all for the hog hunting at night. I don't think certain guns should be restricted.

If you shine a hog with a Q-beam with a red lens, will the hogs see the red? Never done it and I'm curious. thanks Cmack

I've got family that have a camp there with a couple of boats. I'd be fine fishing for whatever bites. Bream, bass, sacalait or catfish. Doesn't matter to me. Just wondering when people thought it would be open for me to get there. thanks for all the imput. Craig
