    Hey just out of curiosity…..I see you were running all line counter reels….How many feet of line would you let out before you would put the planer board on the line?

    Thanks,

    I’m leaving for 6 days worth of fishing to Put-In-Bay on Friday. This will be my first time fishing Lake Erie and hope it’s a good one!

    I let my 11 year old shoot his first deer this year with my Savage muzzleloader. He shot the same load I would normally shoot but the key here was I built a stand to go in my blind to allow him to put the lead sled on! Very little recoil and they can hold steady when the time comes to pull the trigger.

    $35 to shoot a deer?!?!? I already think it’s too high to begin with!

    Leave them alone… You will see a lot of people give up hunting and fishing because it will just be too expensive.

    Well I went out Wednesday the 8th which was 2 days before the full moon. Got set up after walking in with 4″ of SQUEEKY snow. Played some cottontail distress for about 5-6 minutes off the FoxPro. Nothing. Switched over to pup in distress and at the 3 minute mark had one pop up at about 75 yds sitting in an open bean field. I won’t tell you how it ended…lets just say I went home with my tail between my legs. Whiffed…. LOL

    Live and learn.

    Here’s my load. 69 grains of H4198. MMP sabots. 250 gr. Hornady SST bullet.

    Shoots tacks! Both my kids (12 & 15) have shot this load with no problems and shot a lot of deer!

    Shot my last deer at 200 yds with no hold over!

    When you say “guide rods”…. Are you referring to the rods that are attached to the forearm when you take the forearm assembly off the gun?

    This gun is spotless when it comes to clean BTW!!

    Thanks,

    I can load the gun with all five shells just fine. Shoot the first shell and it will eject out of the gun. 2nd shell doesn’t come out of the magazine. So basically I have a single shot. Weird thing is that it does not happen every time but I would say atleast 75% of the time. Doesn’t matter if it’s a 2-3/4″ trap shell (7 1/2 shot) or a 3″ duck load (2 shot). But it does piss me off when I have a group of mallards drop in or a couple roosters flush and I have 1 shell!

    Hope this clarifies things.

    edit: On occasion on some 3″.. 1 1/4″… #2 shot Kent Fasteel would swell the shell into the barrel and the action would be stuck forward after the 1st shot. Then I would pull the slide down extremely hard or take the barrel off and stick something down the barrel to get the shell to break loose. This gun is the devil!

    You guys might all laugh at me but the last time I cleaned my gun all I had was some WD40! My gun’s (Browning Maxus) action was really slow…I mean REALLY slow…So I took everything apart and cleaned it up all nice. I sprayed the heck out of everything just to get all the gunk out of the trigger assembly….I’m talking just hosing the crap out of everything with it. The key to this is that I took an air hose and sprayed out all the excess oil then put it all back together and been working flawlessly. You never will get rid of all the oil with air so the key here is a little bit of oil on a clean gun goes along ways! Heck I just used it the past couple days out pheasant hunting when the lows were in the single digits and highs in the teens.

    Pheasant1 nailed it! BE QUIET! Don’t shout and yell at your dog….don’t whistle at your dog so loud someone could here you a 1/2 mile away….Don’t talk to your buddy while walking 20 yds apart etc… These birds are in survival mode right now and the slightest sounds will send them running/flying into the next county. Blockers need to swing wide and approach there post quietly and not talk at all. When done correctly you will have them surrounded and make for some great shooting for everyone!

    I shoot a Patternmaster Code Black choke tube. The Duck version is made for 3″ shells and the Goose is made for 3 1/2″ shells.
