No deer hunting down there....and it's not legal to discharge a rifle in the camping area.

So far I Have Put in a new steering Cable, added two red led strips for low light coffee pouring, Attached poultry net to Canvas to attach raffia, attached raffia to one side waiting on order to do the other. Rigged 2 more dozen dekes with 72" Texas rig. Painted a few old dekes for DIVERsity (see what I did there). Need to trim frame on blind down another 4".. Change Lower unit oil and replace a water impeller to be safe.

Thank God for cooler weather

All decoys are rigged. Gotten permission to hunt numerous beaver ponds. Dog has gotten into good shape during dove season. 2 box stands for deer are de-wasped and trash has been cleaned out. Ladderstand is set over an acorn patch with a BIG FUGGIN BUCK around. Hopefully going to be a great season since it might be my last full one for awhile since I'll be off to basic training in the spring.

Haha, all my hunting and fishing friends gave me that nickname. We were out grouper fishing when some genius came across it. Lets just say all I heard the rest of the trip...

"What are you wearing, Jake from statefarm?"

Lol

As usual I'm throwing a wrench in everything and trying to lock up a boat last minute. Decided I'm selling my bay boat, putting cash in the bank and setting up a 16-18 aluminum boat with a tiller flats style to double as a hunting rig.

Boat is being clean sometime today and hitting the market.

I'll miss it but I'm excited about the new boat. Gonna be a sweet one. pods, poling platform, removable livewell, trolling motor. It will get me into a lot skinnier water for the drum/trout and it will be a TON cheaper on gas and much easier to maintain. I fished a lot this year and 9/10 its by myself if its not a weekend tournament and a minimum $30 a trip for gas adds up quick and then add on towing the boat 20 miles round trip adds up too.

I feel ya Add 2 kids to that mix and BAM funds disappear for tournaments and prefishing... That's why my boat is on the Market, for a year already it paid for and I aint taking less than what its worth or it can keep my Lund with 40 hp company...

I have a 1448 Tracker Grizzly and love it. Been a great boat all around. If I didn't hunt by myself a lot I would have a 1754 tracker. That boat is perfect size IMO. My grandpa has a 2072 Tracker that I take out when we have a bigger group going. Its nice, but it is so damn big it can be like a sail boat in the wind.
