    Looks like old Hevi Shot rounds? The Remington edition.

    The first shot of the first double was a Remington Hevi-shot 7.5s, the second shot was a Remington Hevi-shot 4.

    The second double was a Remington Hevi-shot shot 4 followed Remington Nitro Pheasant lead 4 at 1400fps.

    Picture 200-250 Turkeys of all sizes in a combined corn field. Now picture a field like that every three miles. A lot of Turkeys but nobody hunts them because it's hard. Out of about 200,000 permits only 7% have are successful. It's so low, that next year they are extending the season to January 8th. Personally I really do not think the WI DNR knows how many turkeys they have.

    The best way I like to hunt turkeys in the fall is to chase them into thick CRP then use the dog to pheasant hunt them and shoot them in the air.

    BTW, I use REM oil. Works good in the cold temps.

    Ok, since heat is simply the transfer of energy from one place to another, and since all matter contains energy, then windchill affects everything. You are an engineer, right? You should know these things. ;)
    This I can agree with, but it is a far cry from your original statement that windchill only affects things with “feelings.”

    Okay how about this for you. Wind chill is a factor on how fast heat can be removed from an object depending on the delta "T"

    Can we agree that a thermometer is a lousy wind gauge? And a wind gauge is a lousy thermometer? Therefore when speaking about the temperature outside we should use a thermometer reading, and when talking about wind we should use a wind gauge? Not sure about others, but when its really cold outside I layer up in clothes and my outer layer doesn't let the wind pull my body heat away, so the 'windchill factor' isn't a factor.

    I can agree with that to an extent. Where I differ is I dress a bit different when it's 10 degrees and calm than 10 degrees with a 20mph north wind.

    Yup. It’s all about the wind. Daytime highs have been around 10-15* here but no wind. So it hasn’t felt that bad at all. Throw in a little wind though? Burrrr. That wind will tear right through you.
