Re: Turkey tote

I use one I made from a nylon rifle sling and a slip chain dog collar. I had one out of para cord but it got pretty nasty from all the blood. I put a sling swivel in the end of the nylon strap and then slide the chain link over the attachment on the sling swivel. It took one carry job to get the len...

Re: gobblers

Need gps locations and contact info as well. I drew a tag for the following May and hunted that exact place. Believe it or not there was ONE longbeard and probably 20 hens there when I hunted it. Those turkeys are very mobile and disperse out onto the prairie as the weather improves. It’s hard to i...

Re: gobblers

Three years ago in early December in South Dakota. I was coyote calling on a friends ranch and came across a bunch of long beards in the creek bottom. I took a picture of them and later could count at least 48. I drove another 300 yards and there was another bunch that I would guess had a minimum of...

Re: Beginner

Take a look at the section right below this one. 'Hunt Strategies'. Read up on some first hand knowledge. There may be a 1000 years of turkey hunting experience in there.

Re: Deltapoint

Anyone have an example of a rib mount for the Delta Point Pro? It would be interesting to see.

Re: Deltapoint

That would be exceedingly difficult to mount on a over/under. Not to mention it would significantly degrade the value of the gun IMO.

Re: Benelli M2 choke recommendations?

I have that exact same gun and have a Carlson Longbeard .665 that shoots very nice patterns with that load. It will usually put 290 to 300 in the 10 inch and about the same number in the 10 to 20. My gun shoots a nice even well formed pattern.

You've obviously never hunted them in Alabama, or Georgia ! :LMAO:
When did you boys get Merriams in Georgia? You want a real challenge, come to the big timber deep Ozarks and give those birds a try.

Re: Jump rope

I'd jump rope a lot if it wasn't so hard to find two girls to swing the rope for me. I mean they are always in school or doing homework or playing video games. It's just too difficult to coordinate schedules.

Re: Well, I guess we'll see......

I got your PM. There simply isn't any way to mill plastic to a thickness of .030 that I know of. It's so flexible that it would move away from the cutter. There maybe someone out there who can pull that job off but I'm not the guy that can do it. Sorry

Re: Well, I guess we'll see......

Well, it took about 6 months to get this thing together, but I'm VERY happy with the way it turned out. It was a bit of a challenge to get it mounted like I wanted but I got it done. I ordered one of the Burris mounts for a 336 as I had heard it would also work with the Delta Point. It was a no go. ...

Re: Leupold delta point

I received a Burris base for a Marlin 336 today to try and mount the Delta Point Pro. I had heard that this base would be usable with the DPP as well as the FF3 sight. There are LOTS of issues with that base that in my view make it unsuitable for use with the DPP. The locator pins in the base do not...

37 years ago I was guiding bighorn sheep and elk hunters in what is now the Bridger Teton Wilderness area near Jackson Wyoming. I always was amazed how difficult it was for the hunters to get around in that country at 8,000 to 10,000 feet elevation. Now I KNOW why it so difficult. It would kill me ...
