Re: Pinhoti Project

Your mobile home set up in the truck looks very efficient. Never, ever turn on your butane heater in the closed up truck cap and lay down on the cot thinking you'll get up and turn it off before going to sleep. After hunting all day and drinking a beer or two and laying down worn out with the heater...

Glad that worked out for you. Chris Batha, a noted shooting coach, recommends this simple exercise using your gun and a mirror to practice consistent shotgun mounting and insuring the gun is pointed correctly:

Re: Yildiz sight plane

When you shim an auto's stock at the stock head, it moves the angle of the stock's comb up or down depending on size of shim. Unless you shoot with your head off the comb, which was done a 100 years ago when shotguns had 3" drop, I don't see how altering the angle of the butt plate would affect your...

Re: Opening day Alabama doves

That's pretty good for a three man hunt. howl, I'm probably the worst shot in the group of guys I hunt dove with. These fellows use .410, 28's and a few of them use 12 gauges. I shoot 20 or 16. They all hunt every few years in Argentina which will make most anyone a great dove shot. A week of dove h...

Re: Stevens 220A 20 ga, 2-3/4", 28" fixed full, new loads

Apparently Savage made several design changes during the time it made the break action 220. On my 220A, the forend is attached to the barrel with a screw and it has a larger trigger guard than on my .410 220B and 16 ga. 220D. The 220 is truly hammerless; it's not just an internal hammer striking a t...

Re: Stevens 220A 20 ga, 2-3/4", 28" fixed full, new loads

For hunting, I don't see how re-choking would make an appreciable difference. All the patterns look fine. There doesn't appear to a be significant difference in counts in any of the patterns. It's just how much your shoulder is willing to take among the load choices. You might quibble with the 10-20...

Re: Another day with the doves

Early season birds can't resist a Mojo. One landowner I hunt with won't let them be used as they draw the birds away from others and disrupt flight patterns to the detriment of others (not what I think). I spoke to a buddy who was on a shoot Saturday where he saw birds turn right angles to get to on...

Re: 20 ga dove gun

If you already have problems shooting a 20, a full choke will only make it worse. Stick to Mod or IC and shoot only those within 30-35 yards. I like #8 on early season dove when they typically are smaller and not heavily feathered. Late season migratory birds are bigger and heavily feathered. For th...
