A comment titled: Surprise in response to a report titled: 6 MILE OUT SNAPPER TICKET

Y'all are so silly..... this is nothing new..... look at the Pot laws on the west coast.... state allows it, fed government doesn't...... you run the risk of getting an infraction if you choose to follow one rule that breaks another law..... bottom line is you either adhere to the Federal laws and run no risk of getting an infraction OR you follow the state law and risk federal prosecution. Its only gonna get worse as more states will change laws that differ from federal laws and you will have TWO regulations/ guidelines to memorize on EVERYTHING

A comment titled: snake in response to a report titled: snake identification?

Look at the eyes... im 99% sure its just a water snake.. if the eyes are round then its non venomous.. if theyre slanted, its bad juju.... diamondback water snakes can flatten their head when cornered and make it a diamond shape, which gives a false positive on being venomous. the eyes will tell you with certainty

A comment titled: shock collar in response to a report titled: Dog Help

I am a huge proponent of the shock collar and when used properly can thoroughly reenforce your training exercises... you want him to be obedient to YOU not to a fence... use the hand held collar for mild correction when using commands and your dog will respond to you when necessary.... just remember to SHOW him what you want him to do when he doesnt do it then praise him when he does... walking your dog on a leash also helps show that you are in command...... i had a purebred bloodhound that with good collar training never had to be on a leash... thats unheard of for a bloodhound..... just my .02

A comment titled: Tires in response to a report titled: Fuel Mileage Decrease from Bumping Up One Tire Size

Its not the width that reduces the MPG.. its the height of the tire... the taller you go the harder your engine and transmission have to work to make your tire turn a full revolution.... you may be ok on the hwy but you will def lose 2-4 mpg driving in the city.... if you get a good intake and exhaust it can counter the mpg loss but the only real way to combat mpg loss with tire size changes is to change the gear ratio in your rearand front end so the revolutions match the stock specifications... hope that helps

Selling my 16ft skiff. Hull is similar to Carolina skiff with a small 'v' in the front to handle chop. Transom was replaced in 2014 and motor was PROFESSIONALLY rebuilt that year as well. 70 hp high output Johnson 2 stroke runs strong and fast. Power pack and cool replaced this year as well. Has hand controlled trolling motor and big mama battery. Bimini top and ice chest seat make fishing and riding comfortable all day. Has 18 gallon built in fuel tank and fuel Water separator. 6' jack plate and trim tabs as well. This boat jumps up on plane immediately and was built to fish shallow water. I chase redfish in it all year long and the only reason I'm letting it go is because I came into a bigger boat recently. Text me for questions or offer but price is fairly firm. Thanks

Selling my 1997 Yukon Z71daily driver. Body has 320k on odometer but NOTHING is factory. Truck runs strong. Power everything. Ac blows cold. I've owned it for 3 years now and have put 60k on it since I bought it and have been rebuilding it as I go. Interior is fair for an old truck but drives very comfortably. Exterior has scratches and paint scheme is black on maroon but body has zero rust and is solid.

List of mods:
New custom built off road/towing transmission
Both axles rebuilt with 4.88 gears and Detroit locker in the rear
35' dick cepek extreme country tires load range E, 90% tread
Custom fabricated winch bumper
Stereo system
Off road roof rack
All suspension components replaced within last 24 months
6' of lift
New water pump, tstat, and radiator
Upgraded fuel injection system
Upgraded MSD ignition system
Upgraded intake manifold gaskets
Fuel system sensors all new.
Rebuilt transfer case
New u joints.
New a/c system

And I'm sure there's more that I'm forgetting. I built this truck with the intentions of keeping it forever, but I've decided to buy something new as I will be traveling a lot. This truck tows my boats and trailers across the state all the time and has been an amazing vehicle. Price is fairly firm. Text me with questions or offers. Thanks
