UMike

We have 60 local kids and this is the reason?

@Manny_Navarro: Travonte Valentine said a big reason #LSU leads are bonds he's built with fellow South Florida kids already there, #Hallandale S John Battle

I'm married to a gorgeous woman, no need for eye candy.

I've been to warmer places like Cancun, Riviera Maya, etc. Not that I don't LOVE that weather, but I would miss the cold. Doesn't bother me.

UMike

Problem is here in Chattanooga, we dont get this type of weather every year so it can cause havoc. Right now my 11yo daughter is home alone and my 15yo son is stuck at school because the buses werent able to make it back and up a hill to the school lol... Now I got to leave work early and try to get him and get home to my daughter...wish me luck!!

"During his visit, he was hosted by sophomore defensive back Rashard Robinson who also who also took classes at Champagnat Catholic last year."

I grew up slamming Coronas in Mexico and San Diego. Its nice, no doubt. So is slamming back a pilsner at the cabin on Henry's Lake after a morning hike in West Yellowstone. I'd miss the seasons too. Plus you can have all the people down there in Florida. I'll take my mountain tops, elk, moose, nature.

Ohio as much as I agree about playing in the snow with my daughter.... Please believe that our daughters would prefer to build sand castles and play on the beach mayne lol

If U start sliding, don't tense up and hold the brake down. Let up, then pump them slowly.

Also, watch 2-4 cars ahead of U for sudden stops. Slowing down gently >>> having to slow down quickly.

UpNorthCane27

Wouldn't be surprised if Valentine is trolling LSU now, his reasons are getting more n more ridiculous!!

UMike

Ohio.. I kinda drive like that now lol.. but thanks for the info...There are 45 kids stuck at the high school because their buses couldnt make it back to get them lol

I think it is the opposite, he has been trolling Miami for a while.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Good luck UMike. Drive slow.

Dude on a Pale Horse

And buy a 4x4 SUV. It makes all the difference.

UMike

I have a Tahoe, but no 4x4 lol...later fellas

UpNorthCane27

I know what your saying Umike, but im looking at it from another angle.. like you said it's his 3rd and 4th reason seems like alotta BS.

Umike, listen to Ohio keep at least 2-4 cars space between you and the other car mayne. And get your kid fast and get home to your 11 year old safely homie.

Ohio_Cane

Dude, do U hunt? I bow and gun hunt whitetail here (and coyote when they present themselves lol). I've always wanted to bow hunt elk

Dude on a Pale Horse

O_C, I've hunted duck and geese. Never Elk or Deer, yet. I'm learning still, I wanted to go last season but didn't get a tag in time. I bought a Remington 700 chambered 30-06. I can't wait, I want to butcher it to but that may be a bit much my first go 'round. My uncle and my dad go every year, I've just never been terribly interested until recently.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I have mad respect for bow hunters as that is actual hunting. Too many call themselves a hunter as they shoot from their truck bed or 4 wheeler. If I had it my way, it would all be bow hunting.

Dude on a Pale Horse

You can hunt wolves here too O_C.

Dude on a Pale Horse

A few years ago, I was coming home from Stanley, ID and came down Galena Summit. My wife and I saw wolves taking down a elk and eat it. It was freaking sweet.

I'm all about the bow hunt. Gun season in Ohio is only 1 week for shotgun and 3 days for muzzleloader. No other rifle hunting for whitetail.

Whitetail is the ultimate hunt, especially using a bow. Smartest animal I've ever come across. Their sense of smell is impeccable. Especially the big trophy bucks. They haven't survived long enough to grow that size horns for no reason. Scouting, waiting, etc for one to get within 40-50 yards max is a crazy feeling. Got 2 doe this year, but no bucks.

Butchering yourself is the way to go if U know what you're doing. Saves $$ for sure. U can ruin cuts and waste meat by not doing it the right way. I'd pay to have it butchered until someone teaches U the right way.

Wolf would be an exciting hunt. Coyote around here are always fair game and are a problem in our area, so we shoot every one we see when we're out. Which isn't often, but when one gets close enough, his day is over. They attack livestock, pets, children, etc and are a real big problem

OC it is cold all over except in FL I guess. I love playing coaching in it.....Parcells always said that is championship football.

Only problem I have is the damn Dominion Power Bill. My last house I had a monster woodstove had it so set to keep whole house warm. All I had to do was get wood, but when not appraising that's what I do.... trees. I had enough for 3 winters at a time. This house had a gas fp, but with times real low economically, could not afford gas. Then to pay rent on a tank got to be a problem, so I told them come get it.

Still love playing in it always have. If you get your guys on that page....it takes coaching, psychology.....and many years of playing in it.....and knowing all the secrets, tidbits, odds and ends.....and some mountain folklore and fairy dust......it is an awesome advantage. Going way back, out of the 12 or so SBs, we have never lost on a tile run in cold weather....in HS we won back to backs you had to win 3 to win it all....we won 6 cold weather games.....love it brings out the heart and will of a champ.....my guys have shoed over the years that it hurts to get hit in the cold....it breaks you mentally and physically.....we call it Owning Your Soul .....these little things make it work in the cold re football!!!!

VA Cane

Yes UM.....slow slow slow...if you have an automatic.... keep her in 1 or 2 more traction lower gear ratio.....clean car off real good and give your self a lot of room.....never hurry slow and steady gets you there....and if you do slide steer into the slide pump brake no stomp.....and as you slow and feel it correcting then you can straighten it out.....slow works best

Dude on a Pale Horse

A lot of people use AR15s on the wolf hunts here because you never know how many you're calling in. In some areas the wolves are a problem, in other areas people are just pissed that they have to deal with them now. I don't feel bad for them though. They have their livestock on public lands, the public says we want these animals, that's America.

Ohio...Harry Miller from California is planning a bow/rifle hunt for Elk in the mountains of Northern New Mexico for Canespacers next year. This year he is going scouting trip and next year it is ON! He says U have to camp out on the mountain overnight amongst the beasts to have any shot at them at dusk and most likely in the early AM.

NativeCane and I are already ALL IN.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Florida also gets over 100 degrees with humidity and mosquitoes from June into October. Forget that!

Ohio_Cane

86, that would be amazing. I will do what I can to try and get on that. How difficult is it to get an Elk tag being from out of state?

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 28, 2014 at 02:30 PM

Harry knows a landowner there with a property allgedly "covered in Elk". Their convo went something like this: He asked her "How many do you think we can get?" and she asked him "How many U want?"

He is gonna get the license info and local details this year on his scouting trip and then we are going next year.

UMike here's another tip from a Floridian that had to learn about winter driving in Tennessee. Stay well back of 18 wheelers, particular in the day after the snow is over and the warm-up has begun. Snow or ice can loosen from the top of the tractor trailer and blow off in one sheet. It's enough to break a windshield.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Anyone following this story about Northwestern players unionizing?

Oh man CR,

There's a whole world to explore out here in the winter time. You know this area where I am at is has more thermal heated water than anywhere in the world. We have hot springs galore. Plus there are all kinds of cool things to do. Snowmobiles. Skiing. Some crazy people like snowboarding? Hikes across Craters of the Moon is really popular right now.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Plus we have ways of keeping warm up here, if you know what I mean. Ha ha.

Oh yeah, there's more...Fournette already headlines that class, so a TV commitment would be ho-hum. And His impact will be felt more here, than in Baton Rouge.
