    This one actually was brought to us by a neighbor who found her as a little pinkie in her yard. The previous ones had come from tree jobs and streetlights.

    The sea turtle population has absolutely exploded in the last few years Cory. They are almost a hazard to navigation in the warmer months. Did you paddle up on the manatees?

    Nah, she loves attention. When they're young, they're feisty and love to wrestle and play. As they get older most of them chill out and like to be rubbed and petted. Kind of like me;).

    The old males are tough as boot leather, takes some boiling to make 'em palatable.

    I've never encountered an aggressive squirrel in a tree, even those with a nest of babies, and they usually bail pretty quick in my experience. We don't inspect nests for babies but if we find survivors on the ground we put 'em in a bucket and call a local guy who raises them. My squirrel raising days are over, when ol' Pearl the squirrel goes to the great pecan tree in the sky, I don't think I'll try and replace her.

    It is a blast Cory, nothing like being towed around by a fish. Jay, reds this size are pretty good any way you fix them, the meat is light colored and flaky. Since you convinced me that eating raw fish wouldn't kill me, I've found they are pretty good with only soy and wasabi but my absolute favorite recipe is what we call redfish on the half-shell. I fillet them, leaving skin and scales intact. Seasoned and cooked on the grill skin side down they will make you hurt yourself.

    About time to start a new fishing thread. Caught some redfish out of the 'yak this evening. They fight really hard all the time but while the water's cool, they are just brutes and will give you quite a ride.

    :lol: Back when I was a Lineman Apprentice we had a stack of old work orders and other paper work a foot thick that I had been told was extremely important that we complete and mail to the proper recipients. My Lineman asked me, "do you think this stuff really means anything?". I told him how I'd been taught that it was of paramount importance. He said, "let's find out" and threw the whole stack in the garbage. We never heard a word about about it.

    Looks like it was written by someone that knew a little about the work. Do you use a pull line? Wedges? Answer no and see if they really read it;)

    Good advice Jay, I hope all goes well. I had cataract surgery about four years ago now, got to where I couldn't tell how many limbs were on a tree. Too many hours on the water and I'm sure welding was a contributor. Young and old, take care of those eyes!

    Sure is Stephen, felt recoil/muzzle jump is supposed to be less because of the lower position of the barrel. Makes sense.

    Jim, does that kind of velocity shorten barrel life to any degree? I remember hearing about .220 Swift barrels burning out pretty quickly but I think velocity was at or above 4,000. That's a Chiapa Rhino I believe Butch, .357 mag most likely.

    Good looking rig Evan. 640 yards is a loooong shot. It takes a fine rifle, optics and weather to make that happen. I've got a friend who is building them who wants to do a swap for a Colt single action army revolver that I own. I'm pondering it but I think the pistol might be worth a little more.

    Rest in peace John Glenn, astronaut, fighter pilot, first American to orbit the earth. He was one of those men who Tom Wolfe wrote about in his book "The Right Stuff". A great man and a hero for many of us boys who grew up in that era. John Glenn truly had "The Right Stuff". http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2016/12/john-glenn/john-glenn.html
