Re: Should I dip this gun?

Those old zipper covers are probably no longer made. These Beartooth neoprene comb raiser kits would protect and camo the bulk of the stock. Be simple to fabricate a sleeve for the forend.

Those old Mag 10's were (and still are) HTH. Heavier than hell. Mine fully loaded weighed 12.75 lbs. I don't miss it. Gil

Years ago someone made stock and forend coverings that had a zipper for easy removal and covering. A buddy has them on his Mag 10 Deluxe. Gil

Re: Should I dip this gun?

Dipping, painting, etc., are more often to please the hunter rather than to avoid displeasing a bird. Gun "skins" could do the work without harming the wood. https://www.gunskins.com/products/rifle-skin Years ago someone made stock and forend coverings that had a zipper for easy removal and covering...

Re: Calling In Spring Gobblers Before Opening Date On Land With No Hunting.

I've heard stories over the years about game wardens ticketing folks calling up birds pre-season with allegations that they were hunting. I don't know if it was garbage talk, but the stories were around. Probably just rural legends. Gil

Re: Cool Gloves

Last few years I've kept gloves in pocket to keep other stuff from falling out. I got tired of taking them off to use my rivercane yelpers so I just stopped wearing them. It's also easier to nose pick without gloves on, although when I wore gloves I cut off the trigger finger tip of the glove but th...

Re: Mouth Calls vs Friction Calls and Trumpet style calls

Past few years my main calls are mouth and rivercane callers. It's been over a handful of years that I carried a box religiously although for old times sake, I drag out one of them a few times a year. I also carry a turtle shell slate, but rely on the mouth and rivercane callers mostly. I don't know...

Re: Automatic safety on gun

Some of my doubles have them; some don't. With a tang mounted safety, it becomes second nature to push it off and pick a trigger. It makes no difference to me whether it's auto or not. Gil

Re: Which 28?

As has been stated, it would be hard to top a CZ Bobwhite 28 ga. At 5 lbs., 3 oz. and with double triggers and well regulated barrels according to those that shoot one. I am a big fan of doubles for bird hunting and won't buy one with a single trigger. The exception is a Remington 3200 o/u with a si...

three weeks ago a Florida woman was attacked and killed by a 12' gator. Her arm was found inside the gator. One of her dogs was bitten.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

Here in the lowcountry we have sand gnats. "Flying teeth" and will bite the bejeebers out you. They come out when the temps are perfect in the spring and fall. Anywhere from high 60s to low 70s. Gil

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

turkeybuster was engaged in his pre-dawn daily devotional in the bushes near a lowcountry river when he heard what he thought was a raccoon walking through the nearby brush. It was a big gator. The sight of the gator sped up the "devotional" and TB finished quickly and got out fast.

Re: deep cleaning and polishing.

Better is the enemy of good enough. Honing removes metal and that metal could be the thin chrome lining that protects the bore from worse problems than a pattern that is good enough. Gil

On a dove field I hunt there is an old two wire transmission line running along the field. There have been occasions when the weight of hundreds of dove sitting on the top wire grounds to the bottom wire and there have been as many as a dozen dove killed at one time. Gil
