    You know since I quit letting coyote hunters turn their dogs loose to run my timber I have had less problems with coyotes (and the hunters and their dogs too for that matter) causing trouble. I even had a guy from the north east Iowa several years back stop and ask to setup to spot and call the yotes, that sounded better to me than running them with dogs so told him anytime he wanted he could go. That was the last I ever saw or heard from him. When the dogs leave the timber and get near the cows and calves is when the 45/70 comes out. It kind of stops, drops and skins all in one swift action.

    I also see on the home page that they have this posted:

    Mine are all accounted for. :mrgreen: Not sure what they are but canine sure looks good for the two on the right. Bison or horse would be my guess on the big one. Great finds. I especially like the canines. They are unusual.

    I liked the canine- canine too. Laying next to some coyote canines it was at least three times larger and slightly different shaped, so I have no clue what it could be.

    Matt G. do you think bison?

    :mrgreen: Ok its a mountianlion’s lower front canines or whatever they are called in cats. :mrgreen:

    I have a New England Firearms Sidekick and a New England Firearms Heritage. I like my plain old wood and blue barrel sidekick over the heritage best. That said I shoot 70 to 90 gr by volume of FFG T-7 behind 260 to 300 gr Dead Center sabots. (My guns like the 300 gr better than the lighter ones) The sidekick has not missed yet the last 2 seasons. Between dad and I we have taken 11 deer in 2007 and 9 deer in 2008. Most shots were taken @ 75 to 100 yds. The longest was 135 to 140 yds. All of these shot were pass through. I think by using a loose powder you can better fine tune your gun to what it likes and be deadly accurate with out punishing yourself needlessly.

    Sounds like the ground wire from the towing vehicle to the boat trailer isn’t very good or is nonexistent

    Just be sure if you shoot them over a field that there won’t be any livestock grazing on that piece of ground at anytime as clay pigeons are toxic to them. Or it is mowed and baled for hay. The rakes/windrowers can put the pieces right into the windrow and then get rolled up right along with the rest of the hay into the bale.

    One question Snooter,

    When the boat is up on plane if you pull your hands away from the steering wheel momentarily does the boat want to turn rapidly to the right or slowly make a right turn? Or if you don’t feel comfortable about letting go of the wheel do you have to keep left hand turn pressure on the wheel to keep it going straight?

    I’ve been fishing with a flyrod for 40+ years have caught everythng from green sunfish to Northerns on a fly. My dad has been fishing with a flyrod 60+ years and has tied some, mostly poppers. I have never tied, mostly cause I don’t have the patience. So I buy my flies or poppers. I get all of my flies from http://www.pistolpeteflies.com/ they are killers on panfish and bass.

    Literally hundreds of thousands of them here right now. Yesterday and the day before there wasn’t hardly a pond, lake or stock field in our area that wasn’t covered with snows and blues.

    If the water is down you can wade fish otherwise you will probably need to be in a boat. I don’t know what the current situation is with Bullshoals but if the lake level is still high they will be letting a pretty good flow of water out. I only made it down there once last year and it was the first time in 10 years that I never broke the flyrod out and never did any wade fishing on accout of the high water. Boy I hope you are tougher than I am. When its 90 degrees out during the summer its 104 on the river and the water temp is in the 35 – 40 degree range. The very first time I went down there with my friends they told me all I needed was jeans and some old tennis shoes to wade fish yeah right. I was in the water about an hour and it took me 3 days before I quit shaking and shivering. Then next time I went back I had waders.

    Here is a pic of some of the bigger rainbows icaught last sept

    Well if thats what it takes to put the turkey population into a recession tell that politician to live trap all the bobcats he can and bring them to taylor county and turn them loose. If theres one thing that we have more of than deer its turkeys. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Is it hard to find ammo for a 45/70 and is it expensive. Sounds like a cool gun ๐Ÿ˜€

    The mild 300gr factory loads can be easily found at most larger chain stores and certainly at Bass Pro, Cabela’s, Scheels and local gun shops. It will run between $29 to $35 for a box of 20. The heavier loads run from $35 on up to $70 for a box of 20.

    I haven’t bought any factory ammo for quite along while. The last that I bought was $18 for a box of 20, but I save all of my brass as I reload my own.

    Ernest, what year is your Prairie? Anything special with your auger setup or just some bungee’s? Looks good.

    Ethan, I bought it new in aug 2003. Had a special price ($6300) on account of the 2004’s were coming out. I just lay the auger across the front cargo rack and use rubber tie downs to hold it in place.
