Re: Merriams nuggets

Another great was is to roll in flour, then dredge through egg wash, then roll in seasoned Panko crumbs, then deep fry. It’s on the Meat Eater website and he calls it Turkey Schnitzel.

Re: Black Hills Bound

Spent four days hunting in the Wyoming portion of the Black Hills. I hunted all public land, as I did in South Dakota. Did not find very many birds and had to move around a lot. Finally killed one around 2:00 PM on the fourth day. All in all, it’s been a great trip to the Black Hills and a wonderful...

Re: Black Hills Bound

Thanks guys! Since Wyoming extended the season, I am going to head over there and try my luck. Not ready to quit hunting and go home yet.

4249AA9E-592A-4876-873E-2C065E6CB6A3.jpeg I’ve been in the Black Hills since Thursday. Didn’t hear a lot of gobbling, mostly because the weather has been bad. In between wind and rain events, I managed to call in and kill a nice two-year old yesterday at around 3:00 PM. It happened pretty fast, but...

That’s a two-year old for sure. Nice job. I am headed to the Blacks Hills for the last week of the season. What were the numbers like?

Re: The 28 Rises To Speak This Morning

It has nothing to do with the 28 gauge per se. Just use a recoil calculator and you will see that recoil is a combination of shot weight, velocity, and gun weight. When you start shooting 1.5 oz loads at 1100 fps out of a 5 pound gun you are going to get a lot of recoil. You will get as much recoil ...

Re: impeachment

The future of our great Republic hangs in the balance. This is a fight to the death. If Trump defeats these traitorous thugs, the Republic may be saved, but it’s our last chance. If the deep state takes him out, I don’t think we will ever get our Republic back.

Re: 28 ga. & .410 turkeys

Here is a Montana bird taken by my wife. It’s the first kill for the 28 gauge Beretta Silver Pigeon using 1 3/8 oz. TSS #9 1/2. The call is a Marlin Watkins fiddle paddle in bloodwood over wormy butternut. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190426/e92d5ab7e66403c4a002e1083eb7ba30.jpg Sent from my iP...

Re: Fox Trot Ammo

Any plans for a 28 gauge load? I recently had cataract eye surgery, and I’m a little worried about the recoil from my 12 gauge, 3 inch, 2 oz. reloads. I don’t have time to get set up for reloading 28 gauge this year.

Re: 1 for a Green Beret

That call is for my son. The blue is for the unit colors. Scott did a fantastic job on this, and he is great to work with. I whole-heartedly endorse him if you want a great call. Thanks again, Scott!

Re: Who Here Has Never Taken A Private Land Spring Gobbler-- But One Day Would Like To?

I have never hunted private land and probably never will, at least here in Montana. I like the challenge of killing hard hunted public land birds. Here in Montana, birds on private land can get pretty “barnyardy”.

Re: How was your season?

And, of course, I missed one on the last day. With my new super, duper TSS loads of all things. But the gun and load can only do so much - the man behind the gun has to do his job, and I didn’t. That gun and load had 70 and 50 yard kills this year, then I missed at 30.

Down year here in eastern Montana - bad winter must have hurt bird numbers.
