Re: Number Of Wild Turkeys--What Is Your Goal In A Season??

Steve, speaking of hunting to a ripe old age: A friend's dad died 3 months shy of his 98th birthday. He loved turkey hunting and his last season was the spring of his 97th year. His son would wheel him out to a blind over a clover patch and he killed a bird his last season. He was a wealthy man, com...

Re: Number Of Wild Turkeys--What Is Your Goal In A Season??

I look forward to the solitude of being in the spring woods especially where the only man-made sounds are that of an occasional plane passing overhead. The 30-50 minute drive westerly in the pre-dawn sky on a clear night is spectacular with the cloudy Milky Way visible and on my left, the south, lie...

Re: 410 feed back

Correction: My 159 in the 10 was with 9.5, not 9. I have posted the below photo before, but I used photobucket and it will disappear from the ether soon. The pattern on the upper right was 133 in the 10 at 40. I used brass hulls, Hal's load and Winchester primers. In the lower left photo, 159, I use...

Re: Retirement destination

I was retired for 5 years until my youngest started high school and oldest medical school. Got back in the hamster wheel cage 9 years ago. Will step out of it again in a little over a year. No firm plans for the next chapter. Gil

Re: TSS Sellers Will Be Wiped Out

George, I can't say my hobbies are effective at lowering costs. They do, however, lower my blood pressure. ;) I read an observation that once a hunter or fisherman passes a grocery store or KFC on the way to hunt or fish, all practicality is lost. I've had true southern fox squirrel tails that I use...

Re: TSS Sellers Will Be Wiped Out

I handload unfired plastic hulls and reload brass shells with TSS. For me it is the equivalent of tying one's own trout flies, which I also do. I don't consider either a money saver. I have more in the cost of components and reloading devices than I would have in buying shells on the market. I have ...

Re: VP92

That result is the same I get using Kyle Smith's 1 oz. 20 gauge load shot through a Pure Gold ported choke. The ports snag and mangle the CSD exterior wad. The pattern in the 10" at 40 is remarkably good despite the mangled wad. Gil

William, the Yildiz that you choked for me, with brass hulls, will put 120 in the 10 ring at 40 yards. Nothing to write home about unless you consider that was with #8 TSS. With 9's, 159. :) Gil Man Gil can't you get it to do any better!!!! :mrgreen: :thumbup: Yes, but I have to move in closer. Gil

You won't lose the photos on PB, just the ability to post them on third party sites such as this one. Here are some options:
jpgbox.com; hunt101; imgur. All have their shortcomings but are free and allow third party hosting as PB once did. Gil

Re: BPS Browning 410 NIB

If published specs are accurate, the weight would rule out turkey hunting at least the way I hunt. At 7.5 lbs., it would carry like a 12, but always shoot like a .410. It would be pleasant to shoot on a dove field, however. Gil

Re: TSS Sellers Will Be Wiped Out

Barring house fire, theft or burying my supply like a squirrel and forgetting where it's buried, I will never shoot up what I have in shot, powder, wads and hulls. I'm in it for the long haul. Gil

Re: Turkey Nuggets

Never saw the need to "mask" the taste of wild game by soaking in milk, etc. Picked up simple way to deep fry fish and game,especially wild turkey. First of all, I cut against the grain half inch thick rather than with the grain of the breast. Whisk in a half cup of flour into a cold beer or cold so...

Re: slate call repair

Woodhaven repair would be the easiest choice. The top surface will be removed, probably broken to get to the sound board. Or you can diy. If the slate is standard size, you can convert it to copper, glass, aluminum, or replace the slate once you re-attach the sound board. Here are the material choic...
