    Report from the field.

    I brought home 14 gallons from my boat. The others didn’t bring home quite as much. The other guys math is not right. You know the area we shrimped.

    Muddox, what a sad piece of equipment

    So, my hunting buddy shelled out 27k on a new muddox this year so we could go into some serious backcountry. Well, with 20 hours on it, the coupling from engine to hydraulic pumps failed. Luckily my buddy was only 3 miles off the road on a caribou hunt before our big moose hunt. So the Alaska...
