    Your dream hunt, your dream fish

    Hunting it would be either a huge alaskan moose or a 300 plus lb Canadian whitetail. Fishing, no doubt it would be to fly fish for the monster Taimen in Mongolia Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So I tried a new archery store

    I agree. I myself would rather set my bow up completely. As for shops... i had Tom from Stricktly Archery initially set up my old glory. He did a good job but needed fine tuning with broadheads, that is expected. I think Tom and Ray get a bad rap at times because they grow tired of having guys buy bows at Cabelas or Online then bring it to them to tune only having the guy that bought the bow elsewhere complain about the price to do it. Business is about making money, not charity. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Well maybe, maybe not. Depends on scope height, velocity of particular slug, etc. Take a couple of shots at 50yrds. If you’re 2-2.5” high you should be good to 100yrds for sure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Reading many of the posts on here about sighting in, what brand/length slugs and the never ending “200yrd zero” i thought I would make a post about “real world” shooting with slugs and the things most do not take into consideration. I am in no way claiming to be an authority on the subject however slug shooting, reloading and testing is a hobby of mine and the many hours I have spent at the bench have taught me some valuable “real world” lessons. Things to consider... 1- What ever zero you decide on, sighting in should be at 50yrds while the projectile is still supersonic. Verify at other distances for drop but always go back and fine tune at 50yrds. Outside factors come into play at further distance and you will chase zero from shooting session to shooting session 2- Never ever try to sight on a day with high wind at your back, i have no idea why but it almost doubles your group size past 75yrds making you question your ammo choice which may not be the problem 3- Understand that although your new slug gun may have rifle like accuracy it is not a rifle. A simple 10mph left to right crosswind will cause a slug to be 3-4”to the right of bull @100yds, 8”@150yrds and 16”@200yrds. 4- Shoot your gun with a seasoned barrel, not freshly cleaned. Sabots shoot most consistent out of seasoned barrels 5- If you are going to try multiple brands of slugs, plan on spending some time. Your barrel must be cool/cold for accurate comparisons. Some Sabots can be finicky out of a barrel that has expanded a bit from shooting, yet super accurate out of a cold barrel 6- Choose a scope with enough eye relief and mount it to the gun in relation to your eye at all magnifications correctly, slugs kick hard and if you back away from the scope where you see a little black around the edges of the glass accuracy goes down the toilet. Do what this info what you will, just thought i would pass on my experiences over hundreds of slug rounds at various distances, velocities and outdoor conditions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. In previous years hunting Clinton WMA, I routinely saw ripped up birds afield, by the murder scene LOL you could tell wether it was hawk, owl etc. This year I haven’t come across any. I truly do not believe they stocked anywhere near what they had claimed. I hunt hard, spend a lot of time in the thick wet stuff. My dog excels at pheasant and they have been far and few between most days. I don’t mind spending time and hunting hard but at the same time when you do and don’t flush as many birds nor find carcasses from predators it’s hard to believe they are actually putting out the claimed numbers. If they wanted to find birds for the 29th they could, they chose not to because this is certainly a test. If they cant find a couple thousand between now and the 29th how do they expect to find 40k for next year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Deer Farms?

    Well a raised bird released into the wild is a bit different than a deer in a fence that they tell you “go ahead shoot” no? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
