Re: Arizona's Turkey Lottery

You are too kind, advertising this opportunity! ha. I'm going in with 4 points. Always gives me a glimmer of hope looking at the draw results and seeing someone with just a couple points winning a tag. To get the most bang for my buck, I've been buying mule deer and elk points too at $15/per.

Sweet! They made me give the radio back from the banded FL Osceola that I shot in '93.
They downloaded the data off the receiver and since they can't change the batteries, they didn't want to put it back out on a bird. Was thrilled they let me keep the ~$1,600 piece of equipment for my mount. :D

South Carolina. If you look closely, you can also see a GPS transmitter on his back.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

The cottonmouths in that area worried me more than the gators! Didn't see any snakes the first trip.. The second trip the woods were really wet and we encountered several, including a few brutes.

Re: Cerakote price?

Got my entire shotgun done at Black Dove Customs for $225. It was another $80 for a scope and rings. I also paid shipping both ways which was around ~$50. Very pleased with the results.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

They absolutely love to roost in the 'cypress domes'. The birds are there and killable if you are willing to put in the work. I recommend arriving a couple days before the opener to scout. Try to roost every evening. The birds seem to be more vocal after fly up than easterns.

Re: deep cleaning and polishing.

I deep cleaned my 870 for the first time prior to the start of this season. Man was it fouled up... And my results? Worse with the freshly cleaned barrel, right back to where it was before after 4-5 shots.

Re: How was your season?

Pretty good...Managed to take birds in MS, AL, IL, IA, MO, NY, and PA. Birds seemed to be a week or two 'behind schedule' in almost every state with the late spring. The lack of foliage made it tough to move on birds and half of the ones I harvested had at least one hen with them. Saw several jakes ...

They didnt do much research into that 'vast amounts of public land' in Texas. Also had Missouri's license cost wrong.

i used an 8 for 3 seasons and then switched to 3. I like the 3 better. The increased precision can be handy when picking a hole in thick woods.
