Re: Meadow mushrooms

Living below the fall line, we don't have morels here. They seem to be in middle to northern Georgia above the fall line. Advantage of chants is that they are found from the first heavy rain in June until the first cold snap in October. Morels don't have as long a season. Gil

Re: Meadow mushrooms

RapVerm, those are beauts. I tend to stick just to the chanterelle family as it is plentiful here, tasty and fairly easy to id. Here's a pile I found Saturday. Before the photo, I used enough to fill out an omelet. Mushrooming off season in the same woods I hunt turkeys is both rewarding and keeps m...

Pretty sure that's not a 28 "over" a 410. It's a 2 barrel set.
I agree. 28 over .410 is a blown 28 ga. barrel by obstruction with a .410 shell waiting to happen.

I've used the Husky brand floor mats for years and like them much better than the WeatherTec brand.
I've had Husky mats in my Toyota Sequoia since May of 2003 and they will outlast the truck and maybe me. Gil

An FFL holder has to buy it and then transfer it to your FFL holder. Having an non-ffl buddy buy it is considered a "straw" purchase which is illegal (felony) because the buyer has to certify under penalty of perjury that he is buying for himself and no one else. Be careful. Gil

There are some states that don't allow lead in fishing weights. Tungsten beads are used in fly tying certain nymph patterns. Gil

Re: 20 ga. 1-5/8 TSS vs. Same in 12 ga.

Length of shot string is meaningless in turkey hunting. What's the difference between shooing 1 5/8 oz out of a 20 versus a 12? While there are some heavy 20 gauges there is no light 12 gauge that weighs less than the lightest 20 gauge. Gil

An old friend was a professional bull rider back in the day. During the winter when the circuit was closed, he'd help fellow riders who were also MT and WY ranchers cut fences during blizzards. He could've lived anywhere in the US. He moved to the lowcountry after experiencing 50 below weather cutti...

Re: Neil cost call on eBay

They sound no better than my Don Chancey or Lamar Williams calls. The common trait is that they were made and "tuned" by callmakers who also hunted turkeys. The desirability of a Neil Cost call is based upon its quality and the fact that he had been dead for over 15 years. His style of box call is p...

Re: Neil cost call on eBay

Signed and stamped by Neil Cost--worth something for sure to a collector, how much, I dunno. As for giving them away, I gave to friends a half dozen of the regular boxes. In my photo, the far one on the left, is a match to three others that I bought and gave to buddies in 1978. New, $25@. Gil

It is worth whatever a motivated seller and buyer agree it is worth in a sale. A collector could easily pay $1700. Gil

So if there is some kind of powder/plastic reaction it is probably not a good idea to load up a bunch of shells ahead of time is it?
Thinking the same thing. If you have any left over shells, dump and save the shot at season's end and reload just before.
