Re: 30 Hunts in 30 Days

Always fun to get good video footage. I've been doing it for probably 6 years since my kid started hunting. It definitely adds another degree of difficulty to the mix. We used blind's early because she was small, but now not at all. I know I like my videos non-hollywood, NO MUSIC and lots of gobblin...

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 ...

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: Indian creek too tight?

That's a good pattern with 8.5's. You are gonna have to go to 9's to get closer to that 300 mark i would think.

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...

Thanks fellas! Hopefully I get to officially test them in a few weeks. Pullit and I are going to see if we can get a Rio (or 8) to volunteer for new product testing on April 1 :D Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Nice, but my load gets 313 in the 10" if ya'll would like to borrow it. :bootyshake:

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...

I use the 4 blade broadhead to get the slits started then use a razor blade to finish them. Works like a charm.

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...

Re: blended tss

I tried it a few times with 8s and 9.5s but just never got a good pattern. I really didn't tinker with it too much but just went back to all 9s which is essentially what you are doing by mixing them.
