Re: tried and true striker woods

Dymond wood absolutely. I have heard Thin win is very similar (maybe the the same) and is also very very good. Nothing at all wrong with snake tho!

Re: advantages of a trumpet

On any given day any call might work. Most of us know that. Trumpets work! Trumpets do seem to carry sound along way off. So do wingbones IMO. I often carry both. I just like using them. Work in the rain. Hangs around my neck real handy like. Alot of benefits. I will never be as good as Prudhomme or...

Re: Thermacell Recommendation

Cant really add to the conversation other than to 2nd / 3rd the comments of Deet ruining finishes on things. Including custom turkey calls. However you decide to get a Thermocell, do yourself a big favor and GET ONE. They WORK and if you are near water and no wind the skeeters are a thing you don't ...

Re: Rem 870 Super Mag

I had the 11-87 Super Mag as shown by the OP and hunted it hard for years. Using Hevi 6's and Remington Hevi 6's to start. Moved to Hevi 7 and Fed HW 7. Then to TSS #9. It never failed to kill or work. It was a reliable, HEAVY duty workhorse. But I never bonded with the gun or the funky, right hand ...

Re: Flying w/shotgun

What Joey said. Call the airlines you be flying on and get their guidelines in advance. In writing if possible. Its always the little things. Some airlines require ammo to be IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX, stuff like that if your into TSS. Get there plenty early to get thru the check procedures. Use your gun ...

Re: Meat grinder

What ever the brand look for 1hp or about 13 amps. That will tear thru the tuffer cuts. 1 or 2 deer a year speed should not be a problem. I have used several over the years and all did well as long as the motor was strong enuff. Look for one that grinder portion detaches for easy cleanup. Try to get...

BarBQ chips work well for the coating. I have used it on fish and turkey. We have a brand here called UTZ. They make some killer honey BarBQ chips. My favorite for coating.

Re: UltraDot tube-style red dot sight?

I used one on an 835 for a long time. Always held up and did well. No issues with recoil. In fact, its still on the gun in working condition, I just retired the whole rig. I went to a reflex (FF3, Venom) type simply for a greater field of view. They do make a great pistol site as well.

Re: 4-play turkey call

Be an interesting call to add to a collection as an interesting oddity. 20 years from now might have something. Without some gauged stops or pre sets it seems to challenge the idea of a call thats hand tuned to the "sweet spot".

Re: 28 Ga Tristar G2 Viper Rail Mount

I bought the Tristar upland hunter O/U. Looked at the meadow creek mounts but decided to just drill and tap THE VENT RIB. Of course no receiver on an O/U. Either is easy to do and works great for red dot type sights.
