fall mountain gobbler

...bring on spring!!!! Not quite so fast... I still had a western fall tag left and made the flight west early yesterday morning and drove down to the pre planned hunting spot with enough time left over to squeeze in a 1-1/2 hour late afternoon hunt. We had hens answer our calls and made a move on ...

Got out myself this morning in 17 degree weather - after a VA bird. And I found one that wanted company. Image

fall mountain gobbler

My brother had been unable to find a flock of mountain toms the last three times out, but finally found some today. Called them over with a Quaker Boy World Champ and took one with his old 2-3/4" Wingmaster and 2 oz of TSS 8s. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/wyogoob/Fix%20Pis%20for%20others/b...

Re: beautiful day to be in the woods

Gil, I think the key is laying the gun across your lap ready to shoot while you doze. :wink: I've killed two turkeys in my life like that, and both were in the last year and a half. I'm beginning to think maybe it's a legitimate strategy. As I get older and slow down some, I'm thinking it'll become ...

beautiful day to be in the woods

Went out today and hunted hard all morning, but was unable to find anything. Found a nice place to sit down and eat lunch, and decided to stretch out and take a nap. Dozed off a little, and laid around for about an hour or so, and called every now and then. About 1:40, immediately after a lost yelp ...

Re: Love the Fall !!

I went out Saturday morning but couldn't find any. They'd had bulldozers in there messing around this week - and I didn't know about it, or I'd have gone elsewhere. But the woods were gorgeous and it was therapeutic.

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

I got the 28" barrel, and no, I can't tell if I got a round chambered or not, so far. Gonna have to get used to that. I took it out on Saturday after some wood ducks. I loaded up 1/2 oz of #10s. Had an improved cylinder factory flush on it. I shot at 4 ducks, and put all 4 on the water. Two were hig...

I shot this gun right out of the box with the factory full choke, and it's more than sufficient to 50 yds with 9s or 9-1/2s.

The 4mm are about #1 size, the 4.5mm are the size of Daisy BBs, or #B in typical hunting shot, and the 5mm are about #T. The first deer shot with the #1s I have was a small buck at 67 lasered yards several years ago. The shooter counted 16 pellets that hit the deer, and 13 of them passed completely ...

Re: who is shooting a 28 ga pump?

I took it out yesterday after some crows and went two for two (9/16 oz of 9-1/2). The gun really feels nice. It's definitely a keeper.
