Re: The wind blew; the Blue Wing Teal flew

Thanks, fellas. That day was a throwback to about 40 years ago when we had the ducks. And 40 years ago, folks were telling us that 40 years earlier they really had the ducks. The little 6 acre field was about the only game in town according to two different pairs of game wardens that checked the two...

Re: The wind blew; the Blue Wing Teal flew

After the hunt, we gathered at Floyd's for breakfast. His house is on the other side of the pines in the field photo which is the first photo. For the two hours we stayed at his house, from the dining room's second story picture window, and less than 200 yards from the field, we saw flight after fli...

The wind blew; the Blue Wing Teal flew

I was lucky to close out the last day of early teal season here in the lowcountry. I was also fortunate to get an invite to where the landowner’s father in the 1970’s resurrected the growing of Carolina Gold rice. Carolina Gold was the finest rice grown in America 200 years ago in the lowcountry. It...

Re: bought another mountain bike..

I exercise my Brittanys with my old Cannondale. I have a snap mounted post (Walkydog) that has a spring loaded leash that sits at right angle to the bike under my seat. I harness the dogs one at a time to the short lead and let them pull my tenth of a ton through the neighborhood. They can't control...

Re: CZ 28 ga, 1-5/8 oz

Let's see what develops in factory loads in 3" for 28 ga. Once that happens, the components will most likely follow from reloading sites. Then it's game on. Brass hulls are already available and since they don't depend on crimping to hold the shot in the shell, 2 3/4" chambered guns would work witho...

Illinois is 7.5 as the smallest. Our state also went to non-toxic shot on state land.
I think states like yours was the reason Federal went with #7 on the 15 g/cc tungsten shot loads. Gil

Re: Federal is now in the TSS business

Federal will move the conversation among the uniformed masses to whether or not #8 is "too small" for turkeys. Surprising they went to #8 as if memory serves, that might not be legal in all states for turkeys, unless the load is touted for waterfowl. You fellas in such states, correct me if I'm wron...

Re: Anyone else see this on Facebook?

Part of the reason I wrote about loading the .410 is that there isn't anything out there with the potential of 40 yard reliability that TSS possesses. There is no other "good enough, dead is dead" at 40 yards. Gil

Re: Anyone else see this on Facebook?

As long as we can distinguish value from price, economics isn't important. I don't think any of us can put a dollar price on the enjoyment of turkey hunting and its collateral hobbies of guns and ammo (loading or buying). Turkey hunting to me has high value. Let me price for all of you what it would...

Okay, George, let's talk economics again. If you want to save money, buy a frozen, plucked butterball.

Re: Doug

I looked for the gas line until he flipped open the hatch. Only downside would be controlling temp and soot. I suppose air flow control could do that, but at the expense of more soot. Neat idea, though. Gil
