    Winchester Supreme #3…….I shot #4 steel for years and used cheaper ammo. I reduced lost birds with premium steel in a larger size.

    I have not fished the Chippawa in 20 years,but the one thing that I do remember was the Crappie and never boat that sucker after dark! I thought we would never get back. A whole new meaning to the phrase LOST

    I wanted to say that myself. I have been turned around coming in at night on this lake before as well. Either avoid it at night entirely or make sure you are very close to homebase.

    It’s a big body of water so don’t try to fish it all. There is a great bar with excellent pizza, burgers, and friday fish fry that you will pass on your way in to and out of town. It is located on Hwy B between Big Round and Little Round lakes. Used to be called “RanD’s” but Randy passed away, now it is something like Deejays or something cause his widow still owns it. I haven’t fished it in a few years nor have I ever fished it in August so can’t help you much. The walleye do bite during the day, crappies are huge. Also be careful when fishing after dark as the lack of lights on shore and immensity will leave you feeling pretty lost……If you have a GPS bring it. My biggest tip is to watch your lower unit….many….many…….many……many people lose them on this body of water because of all the submerged trees. Sorry for the rambling statement

    Banning alcohol from any boat or craft on the water would save alot more lives and make the water safer for everyone. I think that’s next.

    Get some Pro Ears! They actually magnify what you can hear and cut off any noise that can damage your ears. At the gun range you can talk at a normal level but they muffle all the gun shots. I have been using them for about 5 years and they are the best you can buy. You cannot put a price on your hearing.

    Well, why don’t DNR just stock birds every year? Who cares if they have a place to live, or can’t make winter. We’re just gonna shoot em anyway. They do that to trout in nw iowa and muskie at boji. Like walleyebanger said, no win situation. They can pay farmers to raise them by introducing a pheasant stamp, then we can complain on how much it cost to hunt them.

    I am lucky to hunt some good bird ground, but, where corn/bean prices are at, pretty sure its not gonna get renewed for CRP. And my brother owns it. He loves bird hunting to, but pheasants don’t pay the bills.

    i really wouldnt mind paying a minimal fee for a pheasant stamp..

    COME ON UP TO WISCONSIN THEN THEY ARE ONLY $10 and we release 50,000 birds. Of course you will have to hunt a 80 acre field with 5 birds in it with 9 other guys and 6 dogs like I did this year. Did I mention the opener runs from noon till 2:30? The rest of the season they release birds weekly…..often times on Mondays like they did last week. I was there and shot 1 of the 5 the other 4 they let out were all dead 15 minutes after they left the cage. Watched as 6 other hunters(following the release vehicle) converged on the drop site and finished off the other 4 before I could get to them. Good times.

    I read the regs, just didnt read the pintail limit.

    I admitted I did not read the pintail limit, I saw there was a season but did not notice it was 2. I would not shoot any anyways, they are a beautiful bird. I have already sworn to never shoot a redhead, they are absolutely beautiful.

    You kinda have blown your wad all over this thread……don’t you think? Now that your done with it and look like an imbecile to boot……you may just wanna move on and look for a “troll needed” sign somewhere else. 😉 😉

    If you fish a lot and drill a lot of holes nothing beats a power auger. Both Jiffy and Strikemaster are good choices.

    Buy some rifled slugs and try them through your bird barrel first. A rifled barrel may cost you more than the Nova itself. I have shot at the 50 yard range twice now with my Benelli M2 with a front bead and some winchester rifled slugs from walmart. Both times i was dead nuts on with 5 rounds and overlapped on paper. Didn’t even throw any off all were in less than a 3 inch area. As a side note you will save a bucket of cash on ammo as well

    If you are going to make this into ccw while hunting you will likely lose.

    You don’t lose your right to bear arms because of the activity you are engaged in.

    Well its ILLEGAL to carry concealed while bowhunting. Game laws are different.

    That law is just waiting to be challenged. You have a right to protect yourself at any and all times. The 2nd Amendment overrules “game laws”.

    I never said that I agreed with it, but I doubt the CO will let me off with the “2nd Amendment” defense when it clearly says not to carry a firearm. Who nows what would happen if it was challenged.

    I think we agree on this 100%. Just thought I would post a link which is 1000% relevant to carrying while bowhunting. A man in Wisconsin was just stabbed while bowhunting

    For anyone interested in the battle that is being waged in Wisconsin currently I am posting a link. Not meaning to hijack the thread but to provide informative reading for anyone interested in your right to carry. Currently the only means to carry in Wisconsin is openly and this has become a grudge match where police departments harass….intimidate…..and cite open carriers for disorderly conduct. Most recently 5 “open carriers” were cited for openly carrying at a Culvers in Madison, WI.
