Re: Finally, The Bear Question Answered!

That is better than what I have found. I felt pretty darn lucky when I found a downed tree ~22" with a smaller tree ~5" laying about 16" next to it. That made a pretty good pit stop. As a matter of fact, just as I got done my FIL happened by and was in need of some tp and place to sit. Showed his an...

Re: The Story of Limpy

Congrats, only thing that would have made it better would have been if your Dad had shot him. Most of the best hunts I have had have were with my Dad, most were not successful. Tho a couple were. I could tell the stories but you are going to need a six pack. And that might get us past the first hunt...

Re: Never walk to a dead gobbler without your gun

Happened to me too. Bird was a little further than I thought he was. He ran to my left and I put him down on the third shot. Got up and ran over to him. He was flopping all over. Put my boot on his neck. He managed to get free and then the chase was on. It was then that I realized that I had not put...

Re: why 9 over 8 tss?

This was my first year with tss. I went to tss so I could shoot my 20 like I can my 12. I can reload my 12ga 3.5" with lead to kill past 50. That is a stretch with the 20 with hevi 13. Even with long beards. With the tss in the 20 it is easy. I shot a bird at 55 yards (that is where I found the firs...

I have the alps. I like that you can adjust it so it fits you. The cushion is plenty thick. Not completely sold on the kick stand yet, tho I have not taken it out. I might try it without the kick stand to see how I like it.

Re: Barrel regulation

Are you guys filing the choke of fixed choke guns? Not sure I could bring myself to do that. I like my SxS guns for shooting things that fly or hop and my o/u for shooting clays. Never thought much about taking them turkey hunting. I can see the benefit to having that open choke barrel for when they...

Re: WTH

One site I frequent requires you to answer several questions via email before they give you the blessing. It keeps out the spammers and the anti people. I am sure it takes more time to go through and check and the admin approval may very well be the same thing.

Re: If you had to choose one 410

I have an 870 410 with a fixed full choke. I shot a few patterns between 135-140 with shooters load. I suspect one could do better with a sumtoy choke but I am very happy with it.

NEPA youth gaining experience.

I have been blessed with not only my boy but our neighbors daughter to take turkey hunting. Last weekend was the youth hunt but my boy had a bad ear infection and it was her birthday. Obviously we did not get to go out that weekend. So we went out this sat morning. Had a bird gobbling less than 150....

Re: no pride in some hunters

Why in the world would you not hunt them? We own a bit of land (not quite as much as you) and live in the middle of it. All the hunters I know would love to have this. We have friends that drive over an hour to hunt on our property. I am not saying to go kill everything. I also go to other farms for...

Re: Favorite 12 gauge load

I am too cheap to help with the tss thing. I have a lead load that does good out to 50 or so out of my gun. Looking forward to trying shooters load out of the 20. Waiting on the wads.

Anyone else have a good lead load? Mine is a 3.5" load.

Thanks guys! I have shot many long beards but I have yet to see my boy shoot in the nationals. Without a doubt he is going to shoot in the national shoot. I can always make more money or shoot birds, but I will never be able to make this up. If he places first or last, he still shot with the best of...

Re: Roll crimp lead load

What is the resin in longbeards made of? What will happen if they add that to there tss loads ? My understanding was that buffer filled the area between the shot thus reducing deformation of the pellets during their transition from the hull to the end of the choke.

Re: Roll crimp lead load

Not sure what lead loads you are talking about. Long beards have put up great numbers at 40 for me. The problem I have with them is the pattern is not much bigger than a baseball/softball at 25 yards. That is great if you are only shooting birds at 40+. My reloads with #4 and #5 shot put less in the...
