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.flyfishrParticipantApril 24, 2009 at 5:32 pmPost count: 1448
I looked at the site and on the lefthand side about midway down the page there is a box that says information and at the bottom of the box it says contact us. I clicked on this and this is what came up:

Customer Service: (706) 864-1205
Fax: (706) 867-8313

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

Mine are all accounted for. 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?
Ok its a mountianlion’s lower front canines or whatever they are called in cats.flyfishrParticipantApril 7, 2009 at 11:01 pmPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantApril 2, 2009 at 4:50 pmPost count: 1448
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.flyfishrParticipantMarch 27, 2009 at 7:38 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantMarch 21, 2009 at 12:49 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantMarch 17, 2009 at 1:51 amPost count: 1448
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.flyfishrParticipantMarch 15, 2009 at 2:46 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantMarch 9, 2009 at 1:27 amPost count: 1448
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?flyfishrParticipantMarch 8, 2009 at 6:05 pmPost count: 1448
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.flyfishrParticipantMarch 7, 2009 at 10:13 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantFebruary 20, 2009 at 2:01 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantFebruary 19, 2009 at 8:44 amPost count: 1448
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.

Is it hard to find ammo for a 45/70 and is it expensive. Sounds like a cool gun 😀
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.flyfishrParticipantFebruary 14, 2009 at 9:36 amPost count: 1448flyfishrParticipantFebruary 10, 2009 at 9:01 amPost count: 1448

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.
