Re: Separating Shot, Any Idea's???

Look for gold panning or sifting sieves online. There may be something appropriate. Gil

Re: Is it consistent

I've often wondered about consistency myself...is this "normal" ?: 10" 20" Total 238 257 495 292 225 517 238 285 523 217 288 504 236 260 496 276 266 542 ....I did forget to bore snake the barrel on some of these shots.

The newer version is a Rube Goldberged version of the earlier and larger in the hand. I lay a flat head screw on the glas...

Re: Best tasting bird

I would agree on the exceptional flavor of Sandhill crane. More like fine cornfed venison or well aged beef than any other fowl I've had. Best duck I have ever had, wild or domestic, was a bull canvasback, pan seared to rare, skin on, in duck fat. OMG good. I cooked with rendered duck fat for the f...

I've found that what folks describe as a "liver" taste in wildbirds is caused by overcooking. Woodies, teal, grain and acorn fed pintails and mallards are my top tasting ducks in no particular order. Little birds in descending order: Woodcock, snipe, dove and quail. I prefer baked or grilled rare to...

William, that's a fine pattern for sure. I think most of us stick with the 13/16 oz. load designed by Hal. It's unbuffered. .410 is a funny animal. I found that it made no difference one way or another to use buffer or not with that load. Gil

Re: Opinions on 3 MOA sights/ Vortex Venom vs Burris FF III

I stand corrected. It is listed for $149. Gil

On further review, the offer is not available to residents of Georgia, Alabama or Tennessee according to the fine print in the ad. I spoke with someone at NSS and was told that the reason is because they are wholesale dealers in these states.

The only wounded turkey that I didn't recover was one I shot at while flying. I missed him on the ground and he folded on the airborne shot and I never found him. If I could take back that shot I would. Gil

You don't need to go full cantilever to take advantage of a rib mount. Search for what Jamey has on his vent rib shotgun. He uses an inexpensive mount. Red dots are meant to be used on pistols held at arms length so there's no need to bring the RD back over the receiver with a full cantilever as you...

Bats play a big role in nature. They are taking a beating from disease (white nose syndrome) that is fatal to vast colonies in caves throughout the US. In parts of Texas they devour tomato worm moths by the ton at night and are important pollinators of desert plants. Neat photos, George. Gil

Once it hits 160 and it's taken out, temp will momentarily continue to rise, cook and should hit 165.

You can get a remote reading thermometer that will prevent overcooking. The screen is connected to a stainless steel braided cable that keeps the screen safe from the heat and you leave the probe in the meat during cooking so you don't have to open the smoker to check meat temp.
