Re: Trailer tire brand

Most of what I've heard over the years recommends going with the largest tire your trailer will take. Larger tires run slower so theoretically run cooler because of it, certainly better on the...

Re: Trailer tire brand

Can't give you any advice on tire brands, I'd say there are several decent ones out there that will give you reasonable service life. I've got the Kendra Loadstar K550's on my trailer in 13"...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

I've never been one to collect things, if I purchase something it's with the ful intent of using it. I have nothing against folks collecting things like guns, or duck calls, or old decoys, I just...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

I guess I've always had a thing for double barrel guns in some fashion. The very first shotgun I ever bought was some no-name 12 gauge side by side I bought from my brother-in-law. It had 30"...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

My 20 Gauge BSS is a 1981 model, it was in excellent condition when I purchased it, it has 26" barrels, IC and MOD fixed chokes, and it's the sporter model with the English style straight stock. For...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

I haven't used my 20 gauge duck hunting yet, but with the right loads over decoys I'm sure it would be fine (and fun too!). Using #3's or even #4's with an IC choke would do the trick, and I guess...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

I've been using #4's for about as long as I can remember, they work really well on just about anything I have the chance to shoot up in this part of the state. But then I'm not inclined to take...

Re: Federal "new" Speed shok v Ultra sho

If it were me, I'd go with Kent Fasteel. Rogers currently has the 3", 1 1/4 oz on sale for $124.99 / case. It says #1 shot, but I believe it also lists #3 shot size so suspect that's available for...

Re: tractor battery for mud motor

I've currently got one made by Schosche, I've included a link below, it's for large motors up to 10 cylinders, but they make several models. I've got a smaller one for the wife's car which is a 6...

Re: tractor battery for mud motor

There's good logic in giving some thought to bringing along a jump pack as insurance. Several years ago I was hunting in a remote area and got back to my truck only to find I had a dead battery, and...

Re: tractor battery for mud motor

Raul, I've been using the smaller 12v battery for my 23 hp Copperhead shorttail for several years with good results. I basically only use it for starting the motor, occasionally using a handheld...

Re: sunglasses

I've been wearing Costa's for the last 20 years, for everything from fishing to hunting to shooting clays, and I've only been through 2 pair in that time. The first pair I broke in a bicycle crash...

Re: Federal shoks

I can't argue with going to #3 shot, I have used those in the past and they certainly hit a bit harder than the #4's I use. But as I said, I shoot mostly within 30 yards so the #4's are plenty and I...

Re: Federal shoks

A bunch of years ago I settled on 3" Kent Fasteels in #4 shot size for my day to day shooting. For whatever reason they seem to be the best I've found that run through my 2001 Browning Gold Stalker....

Re: Pump gun addition

That's a nice collection of shuckers there Raul, you appear to be a man who appreciates old school gunning. While I use a semi-auto for duck hunting (I do appreciate the recoil reduction those...

Re: Copperhead reviews

Well, as I said in my first post, this is a semi-custom fiberglass boat made by a small fiberglass manufacturing company south of Ocala. They weren't mass produced, I think they made less than 100...

Re: Copperhead reviews

Was it worth it? Well, I'm going to have to say yes. I definitely notice a significant increase in torque, especially on the low end, and that's a plus with a relatively heavy boat. And even more...

Re: Copperhead reviews

I don't have any good pics of the boat at the moment, but I'll try and get a few and post them up here if I can, it's a great setup for small waters and marshes. The boat was built several years ago...

Re: Copperhead reviews

Raul, I have a Copperhead 23 on my duck boat, and I have to say I like it. My boat is sort of a custom fiberglass, flat bottom model around 13' long by 54" wide (sort of an Arthur Armstrong type of...

I second the closet rod thing. Been doing that on both my duck boat and little jon boat for 20 years. They are cheap and effective, and will last for several years with minimal care. I used to go...

Re: Photobucket Dilemma

If I'm not mistaken they still have a free side, but you have to put up with lots of pop up ads and it takes longer to do anything. I say this because I just dropped a few photos onto my account...

Re: 12' Florida Skiff

What size longtail is on the back of that boat? I would think a Copperhead 18 would be a really good upgrade on that boat and make it move pretty well.
