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 with...

What is the 370NM? Is that a new load?
Yeah, that's a new one.

CZ 28 ga, 1-5/8 oz

The only thing wrong with this load is that with the light CZ O/U it kicks like a big boy. Other than that, it's going to be a great load to shoot at turkeys with. 1038 fps, 10240 psi 40 yds, 10" and 10-20" numbers, with 9-1/2s and Trulock .520. http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patt...

.410 Yildiz, 370NM, with CompNChoke

Here's a look at some patterns I've shot today with my Yildiz and a CompNChoke .385 (with my best Factory Full pattern of 10s thrown in for reference); my 370NM load. 40 yds, 10" and 10-20" numbers 10s Factory Full http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/patterns/IMG_3663_zpssaohdjk7.jpg 1...

Looks like your pattern matches up with the shot's penetration about right!

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

One of the intriguing things about TSS is not only the other-league performance you can get with it, but how you can do so many things with it. My first load with it was a 1-5/8 oz 2-3/4" 12 ga load. One of my latest is a 1-5/8 oz 28 ga load. It's crazy to think you have the capability of 1-5/8 oz l...

Re: FALL TURKEY SEASONS FOR ALL 49 STATES....

I think if states wanna have a fall season, it needs to be during a time when deer season is not open. I agree. About the only thing worse than a hen killer ( :mrgreen: ) is a deer hunter plinking at turkeys.... I was real disappointed to see VA's mgmt plan state the goal to increase the number of ...

Re: FALL TURKEY SEASONS FOR ALL 49 STATES....

I agree. I'd be willing to give up a week of spring to hunt a week of fall. But Id still just target longbeards. Just a personal choice deal. I also agree killing 21 in one area can't be good On my last fall hunt last December, we called up a large group of birds - and I counted 102 that came by be...

Re: FALL TURKEY SEASONS FOR ALL 49 STATES....

One thing for certain, if you kill five poults at any age, that's five that will not see two years of age. Preach. Some areas obviously can support a fall season. But in the South where the spring seasons run for 6 to 8 weeks I don't see how the population could sustain itself without hunters makin...

Re: Gobblers on the limb

I always call to a roosted bird. I want him thinking about me before he flies down. If he's got hens around, I call as much or more than they do, to compete for his attention. I've never noticed calling causing a bird to stay in the tree longer, but I don't know how others call, so it's hard to say ...

Re: FALL TURKEY SEASONS FOR ALL 49 STATES....

Another issue I have with a fall season is the fact that a lot of the birds killed are 2 to 4 months old. Just does't sound like something I'd be interested in seeing happen around here. Lovett Williams used to talk about this. He was a proponent of shooting jakes during the fall/winter - because t...

Great pictures and story,...but I am a bit confused. The last pictures appear to be either Rios or Merriams, but I see no reference to any hunts other than in Eastern habitats. I know in the past you have mentioned hunting Utah, was there a change of venue not mentioned? If not, those are the oddes...

Day 7 Went back to GA and hunted one of the prettiest properties around. Had a lot of fun, but they were tight-lipped and unresponsive to my overtures.

8 days

Only got to tote the gun 8 days this spring, but had an enjoyable season nonetheless. Day 1 Went down to GA for opening day, and hunted hard all day long. Heard one gobbler off the property on the roost, and I couldn't get close enough to do any good with him. Never saw a track or any sign anywhere....
