  1. My friend and I are looking for some information on Yanahli WMA for archery deer season. This will be my first bow season and his first in Tennessee, and we're hoping someone can pass along a little guidance. Going in, we've heard there's a good bit of pressure, so we're expecting to need to canoe in and hike. I know it's iffy to ask about spots, but does anyone care to share their knowledge? Places to put in or general areas to check out? Are there other WMAs in/near southern Middle Tennessee where we need to look? Thanks!
  2. We mostly fished when TWRA stocked local rivers this winter, but my friends and I had good luck with Mepps Agila lures on light action spinning gear.   http://www.basspro.com/Mepps-Aglia-Plain-Trout-Kit/product/12091504591735/?cmCat=CROSSSELL_THUMBNAIL
  3. I picked up my 336 after posting a "want to buy" topic in the classifieds here.
  4. Great information here, and my recommendation would be a combination of the two: I have a Redfield Revolution 2-7x that I really like in Weaver rings (I'm guessing low because I had to remove the rear sight), and my rifle shoots Leverevolution well.
  5. How about an 870 Wingmaster? Better fit and finish but still compatible with an ample aftermarket.
  6.   I joined the Revolutionary War Veterans Association, the folks behind Project Appleseed. http://appleseedinfo.org/as_faq.html
  7. Withdrawn — believe I'll hold on to it.
  8. Great job! That is really nice ... and coming a couple of weeks after I added a few to an Amazon wish list, you're not making it easy to convince myself I don't need one!
  9. Some friends and I are thinking about a trip this summer to fish the Caney Fork by kayak, and I'm looking for recommendations on outfitters. We'll need to rent kayaks, and we may be interested in hiring a guide.   So can anyone offer some suggestions? Would a guide be worthwhile, or should we just go it alone?   Thanks!
  10. I somehow made it out of the NRA show with my bodyweight in catalogs ... except for Ruger and Uberti. Might anyone in the Franklin-Brentwood-South Nashville area have some spares or copies they can part with? There's just something I find enjoyable about thumbing through paper catalogs.
  11. This was my first experience of this kind, and it was an absolute blast.   I especially enjoyed the Benelli and Browning shotguns, Savage bolt rifles and Henry lever actions. Ruger's revolvers and the RIA pistols were price-point impressive, too. The smooth action of the Winchester SXP line was a nice surprise.   I was extremely disappointed with Marlin's offerings. I knew they wouldn't be as nice as the JM-marked classics, but the 336 and 1894 I tried had the worst triggers of the show. I can't believe those rifles were allowed on the show floor. Henry, Uberti and Rossi ate Marlin's lunch and took its milk money. So sad ... I'd wanted a pistol-caliber counterpart for my Marlin .30-30, and it looks like Henry is the frontrunner. One of those octagon-barreled, color-case-hardened beauties by Uberti sure would be nice, too.
