    Vee bottom boats and long tails

    I need your opinion of putting a long tail on a Vee hull boat or would I be better off with flat bottom? R I have access to a 15 x 52 Cherokee. Will this make a good swallow water and trash running unit? My outboard is not designed for thick Lilly pads and weeds in area that I want to hunt...

    Old Evinrude 4 hp parts

    I am restoring a 1979 Evinrude 4 hp motor. I have found the lower end parts from Boats. net. I have searched several sites on the web for misc parts like fuel cut off and motor housing. They all have shown "not available". I was wondering if someone on the RF might know of a got source...

    Heavy decoy weights

    Here in West, TN at Reelfoot Lake we have a variety of hunting sceneries for decoy anchors. We have several open water blinds and wind and waves are rough at times. Lots of hunters use one or even two bricks. The problem with bricks is strings must be tied to some form of attachment to the...

    Reelfoot Lake Calls

    We just drew a blind at Reelfoot this season. I was thinking what type call most are using now. I have the old metal reed Dennison, Glenn Scobey and RNT that are loud and a couple of others. I had a Johnny Marsh but gave it to a friend’s grandson. I doubt many are still using the...

    TWRA in TN is trying to change blind drawings on all of their WMA's. Some permanent 60 days blinds and some blinds that the agency will build and brush and some that are boat hunt only basically. When AGFC removed the blinds from Big Lake and St. Frances Sunken what type hunting now is...

    Anyone have any comments about the computer draw at Reelfoot, Gooch or Tigrett. At Reelfoot the number applied more than doubled than what has been showing up in person. I feel it should go back to the drawing in person.

    28 gauge on ducks

    Does anyone hunt with 28 gauge on ducks. I have switched over from quantity to quality. I hunt mostly public ground and goal is to work the ducks not sky bust. I was invited on a hunt last year where ducks were shot at and we could not tell sometimes what type duck they were.
