Re: A Video to get your blood pumping...ENJOY

When you first see him is where he hit the ground when he flew down. We had decided that we would try and get plenty of video footage of him. He was at 40 yards when he hit the ground. My buddy told me to shoot when he was at 15 and walking fast to my right. I got greedy with the camera and let him ...

Yep....that TSS went by him so fast he never knew what winded him. Just keeping it real. I'm the only fool brave enough to show great quality HD misses!

A Video to get your blood pumping...ENJOY

I hunted this bird a number of times and every time he gave me the slip. He's a dandy with a double beard.

Re: Fed HW 20ga 2 3/4" question

With a modified choke I would have to agree that you need to stay at 25 or so. Here is what my daughter killed her first bird with. I would not let her shoot past 35 with this load and it was choked pretty heavy with the .550. http://i1031.photobucket.com/albums/y372/Gophert/Gun%20Patterns/FedHW275S...

Re: Want to get my daughter shooting

I started my daughter off with the 20 ga. Especially if you are going to load TSS, you can just load a low recoil shell and it will be fine. Stick with a pretty basic choke in the .575 range. I would also let her practice with some bird shot then get you some Fed Heavyweight #7 2-3/4 shells for hunt...

Youth Model 870 21" barrel

I'm gonna be honest. It's hard to say. None of my 870 21" barrels like open chokes. I had to choke the crap out of them to get the numbers I wanted. I ran IC555 and IC562. If you want a choke that is guaranteed to shoot good consistent patterns go with the IC. The others mentioned...Carlsons 575/585...

I may travel the whole 15 min drive and make an appearance. I usually spend money on stuff I don't need.

Re: new mount

I have them cutting now. We will have a few at the Unicoi only thing they will not be black. I will probably camo dip mine so I could care less what color. The rail mounted below has been cut and is mounted with the 2 factory drilled holes in the back. I'd have to see where those holes are compared...

The Carlsons is fine. It's what I shoot in mine and they are all hevi approved. Make sure you get the extended .575.

20 gauge choke ?

If your going to shoot TSS go get a cheap Carlsons 575 or 585 extended choke....if you want the 300+ numbers in the 10" go with the IC 555.

Weatherby SA-459 reviews

It's the best pure turkey gun I've hunted with. I have the 20 ga model and it patterns well. There's a review here on the site. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161217/64a697ff8fa1761e067a1500a9959a0b.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161217/7a39fca8512c65e8a3...

I would love to have one that fits the 2015 Weatherby SA459. It has predrilled holes but has a rounded receiver and the flat Burris mount doesn't work.

Re: GoPro Camera

You will not like a GoPro for good hunting videos. Like someone said, it is too wide and angle. The turkey and deer etc will look like small dots. You need a good HD camera with a zoom and a remote. If you are stuck on a gopro....go to ebay and get one of the china made ones and try it our for about...
