closest I've ever called one in without killing him

Was out this weekend and prospecting along, and around mid morning worked my way over to a big creek to see if I could cross it. I saw that I could and called a few times before I dropped down to cross. It took about 1-1/2 minute, when I was about in the middle of the creek with my gun strapped on m...

Re: What's the Best Spurs You Ever Killed

Longest spurs I've ever seen on a bird I killed was 1-7/16" off a Texas rio.

Hal’s new Lil Zip 1260fps 1 5/8oz load

Not a significant difference in the 20”. I pay more attention to the 20” numbers than the 10” when looking for consistency. There was a small alteration between the two that so far hasn’t seemed to make much difference.

357 count 9s for these.

Took my youngest daughter and oldest grandson out Saturday morning and had some quality time in the swamp. http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/Duck%20hunt%20Trevor%20and%20Lauren%2010-17/IMG_3747_zps7dr22hd8.jpg http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff168/hawglips/Duck%20hunt%20Trevor%20a...

VA skwerls

Went out with a grandson Saturday and got some quality hiking and sitting and shooting in. He wanted it to be sporting, so he opted for a NEF single shot 20" barrel .410 loaded with 11/16 oz of Pb 6s. I toted my iron sight BL22 (as usual) with some subsonic 42 gr hollow points. http://i243.photobuck...

Re: 100 yard buckshot

I have received a report of 90 yard kill with #BBs. There aren't many people shooting TSS for deer, but 100 yds is likely the first time someone who has it choked right tries it, IMO.

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...

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...

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 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 ...

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...
