Finally got my Browning shotgun back from the factory with a new camo finish.  Just in time before crow season.  Ah, but it's so pretty now and I'm going to sell or trade it, so I'll keep it new looking.

 

Instead, grabbed an early 70s Remington model 1100 in 20 gauge that I had Williams Gun Sight modify by cutting 7 inches off the barrel and installing choke tubes.  Sweet gun!  Took one shot for patterning and did well at 35 yards.  Bullwinkle used his new 20 gauge O/U with 3-inch, 1 1/4-ounce loads of 7 1/2s.  

 

He popped one and I dropped 2.  One was a very long prayer shot that hit the ground hard, but didn't die there.  Another fell into wet-ground tall grass about knee high.  Decided to get the dog.

 

Went back to Bullwinkle's house to get his hound to locate the 2 not found.  Came back only to find 16 turkeys in the field, so we never went looking.

 

The 20s were fun!

You all aren’t the only 20ga fans. I have a browning Citori that I was lucky enough to snag from a grandpa at a gun show that had promised his tag along young grandson a pistol. I was lucky because I happened to overhear the grandson whine to grandpa how inexpensive the pistol was. $460 was the magic number. I offered $485. That was 20 some years ago( I still have the receipt) ((somewhere)) and I’ve killed at least that many quail with it. Fixed chokes IC, and Mod. 26” barrels.Attached File  2F47D599-0E9A-4BEA-8565-FADA292145C8.jpeg   197.84KB   2 downloadsAttached File  F04C787F-20D1-4D20-A57C-551219AA3090.jpeg   234.35KB   2 downloads
It’s not fancy but it’s light enough to carry all weekend long.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

 

If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there

I'll take some pics and put them on here later.

 

Cool stuff, men.  When crow hunting, it's OK to blast 'em to bits and that's why I like the 12s.  Hardly ever carry the Remy but it sure is slick and quick.  Starting to like it, once again.

Only two weeks left this season, Pokey.  Crow in distress brought them in 5 different times from one hideout in less than one hour.  Missed plenty.

I prefer the bmag for crows but it can be hard to get them to land.
