Guys, I'm looking for some feedback on the Blazer Bay 2220 Professional or 2220 Fisherman. I am toying with the idea of upgrading and would like some feedback from guys who own this rig or have ridden in one. I know this boat will be skinny enough for the marsh I fish, but how well does it handle a chop? I currently own a Skeeter ZX 20 bay boat and have fished out of it for 6 years. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Here's a skull mount I recently did for my 7 year old boy's first deer. Some of you guys may like the idea and want to make one of your own. I made the frames for the pictures and then poured a clear resin over the pictures. It cures clear like glass.
I have a couple of skull mounts that I've done but I need to bleach the skulls. What products do you guys use? I think its clairol # 5 and another product mixed into a paste and brushed on the skull. Any input appreciated. Thanks.
Guys, I noticed an oil stain under my motor yesterday. Looked around and saw that is was coming from where the stainless rod goes into my hydraulic steering unit in front of my motor. The hydraulic fluid had dripped down my jack plate and onto the slab. The area of oil on the concrete was around 5' in diameter. I'm guessing that seal is busted, or that it could have built up pressure and leaked out. Have any of you ever seen this happen and the seal not been totally shot. If not, how tough of a repair is it? I have Sea Star hydraulic steering. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
This isn't a report, but figured someone out there would have some input. Most on this site are truck guys anyway. I have a 2011 Z71, 5.3 V8. Just turned 60,000 miles, so I'll need a new set of tires in the not too distant future. OEM tires are Bridgestone Dueler RH-S, P265/65 R18. These tires are 31.5' tall. I'm looking to go up one size and like the Cooper AT3. Next size up is the P275/65 R18. These are 32.14' tall. Have any of you guys made a similar tire change on a newer chevy? The AT3 isn't real aggressive. I'm wondering if any of you have any feedback on how much mpg I should expect to lose. Thanks for any feedback.
Webmaster, I am having a problem posting an ad on the classifieds. It will not let me select a subcategory, which is a required field. When I click on subcategory, the box shrinks down and does not show any subcategory options to select, so I can't post the ad. Can you please take a look at this? Thanks.
Guys, my power pole remotes are not working. I replaced the battery in each one, and the little red indicator light on each remote lights up, but the unit will not deploy when you hit the button. My power pole works perfectly fine from the toggle switch on my console. Have any of you ever experieced this? I am hoping it's not a major thing and that some of you may have some advice on how to start off troubleshooting it. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
My uncle has an old Colt single shot shotgun that he wants to have restored. It flooded during Katrina. The rust on the barrel is minor, but the rust on the reciever is a lot worse. He is mainly looking to have it reblued, and possibly have the wood refinished. Does anyone know of a good gunsmith on the northshore within a reasonable distance from Slidell? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
I have a Minn Kota On Board 2 bank charger that is 6 years old. I have never had an issue with it, but it appears that it's only charging one of my batteries right now. After charging for a couple of days, one battery is fully charged and the other reads 4.4 volts when tested with a volt meter. I hooked up my portable charger to the battery that is not being charged by the on board, and it appears to be taking a charge, so that battery doesn't have a bad cell. My question is this. On the top of the charger, it says battery 1 on one side, and battery 2 on the other. There is a red and green LED light by the battery 1 label and also by the battery 2 label. When I plug it in right now, battery 1 has both the green and red LED lit, and battery 2 has just the green LED lit. Has anyone had this problem before? I am curious to see if it was a loose connection, or if the unit had crapped out if this happened to one of you. All of my connections appear to be corrosion free and tight. Thanks in advance for any help.
Have any of you guys had a deer hide tanned? I have talked to a couple of tanneries, all but one want the hide already fletched and told me that it has to be sent to them by a taxidermist. The only one I have found that will take the hide like I have it is in Michigan. Right now, the hide is caped out and frozen. Have any of you used a tannery that you were pleased with and would also take my hide as is? I'd like them to do a turn key deal for me. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Guys, I have a 2011 Z71 and I'm thinking of putting a leveling kit on it. I had a leveling kit on my last truck, and I have a few friends with them. Do any of you guys have a level kit that does not affect the factory ride at all? If so, what brand do you have? My last truck took potholes a little harder after I had the level kit installed, but I have a friend with a 2009 Z71 with a level kit who says he experienced no difference from the factory ride. He can't remember what brand he has. Thanks in advance for any feedback. This is something I won't do until my next set of tires.
Guys, I recently bought a new Chevy truck. It came with a drop in bed liner from the factory. I would hate to pull out the drop in liner and get the bed sprayed since it's already there, but I want something to cover the bed rails. Original plan was to spray the bed and the rails, but then the truck was delivered with the drop in. Bushwacker makes some nice looking bed rail caps that I am thinking of putting on if I decide to leave the drop in liner. Does anyone have any experience with the Bushwacker rail caps? Do they warp/come loose over time? Thanks for any feedback.
What happened to Huntr? Thanks.
I have a Skeeter ZX20 that I have run for a few years. The boat handles good in a chop for a 20' rig. A buddy of mine told me that installing a set of hydraulic trim tabs would really make a noticeable difference. I've never had a boat with hydraulic tabs before, only fixed position tabs on a flat before. Is a 20' boat too small for the tabs to make a difference? I only see them on larger bay boats. Thanks.
Guys, my brother in law shot a mature buck this weekend and we noticed something strange while cleaning it. The buck weighed 245 lbs, but had a poor rack; pretty much a big cow horn with a crab on one end. This deer had 2 teets on each side of his package, like a doe would have. We've never noticed this on a buck before, and we're wondering if he was some sort of hermaphrodite or something. Check out the pic attached and see if this is something you have seen before. By the way, he was running 3 does when he shot him.
I'm looking for some first hand feedback on the Ultra Rest made by Quality Archery Designs. Also, the Hunter model Ultra Rest is $55, and the upper end Pro Model is $135. Is there enough difference between the two to justify buying the upper end model? I am leaning towards the Hunter version. Thanks in advance for any input.
I have been trying different factory loads out of a new 270 WSM rifle, and I'm looking for feedback on the Winchester XP3 ammo as a deer round. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
Guys, I guy I work with is selling a set of Interco Swamp Lite ATV tires. The first question I have is are they good tires? The size is AT 26 x 12.00-12. Does anyone know if this size will fit on a Honda Rancher 350 4 x 4? The rim size is 12 x 7.5. Does turning these bigger tires cause any damage to your bike (transmission, etc)? Thanks in advance for any input.
Guys, I have an older Leupold scope that says the adjustments are 2MOA. Does this mean that at 100 yards, 2 clicks equal 1 inch of adjustment? I can't remember. My newer scopes are 1/4' MOA, which is 4 clicks to 1 inch of adjustment at 100. Thanks in advance for any input.
Does anyone have any experience with the Barnes TSX Bullet? My rifle groups very well with them, but I'm looking to find out how they perform on deer. Do they tear up a lot of meat? Do they provide good exit holes and expand well? I will be shooting them out of a 270 WSM. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
