    (POSTPONED) South MS Hunting Retriever Club Training Day June 18, 2022 (Wiggins/Perkinston MS)

    This training day will be postponed 2 weeks due to the heat index Saturday being 115 degrees. We do not want to get a dog in trouble due to the heat. Stay tuned for a new announcement.

    Claro walnut call

    A really snazzy figured walnut blank is worth some serious coin as a gunstock. It is getting harder and harder to find.

    Claro walnut call

    I have also seen Walnut calls, but I don't know what variety of Walnut. There are lots.

    First single reed

    I have been told by folks "in the RNT shop" that the dog ears are "bigger now" because the reed stock is not the same as it was back in the day, and they need to be a bit bigger now to get the same "rasp."

    Where does it end?

    C'mon man: We gotta service the narrative! :)

    Where does it end?

    We have gotten so soft. We have *&^^% air conditioning and heat in our cars because we can't be bothered to develop the skills to cope with the natural environment like our pioneer forefathers. :) We. Suck. Now, the the F off the internet and learn to write with a quill pen and squid juice...

    What is your personal defense handgun round?

    Hornady Critical Duty, Federal HST's, or Gold Dots, depending on what I used to zero that pistol.

    There are many of us duck hunters who were taught to "float" birds. That is a real technique. However, you should fit your own gun for POI, not have Benelli decide everyone needs a "deep float" on every bird. All trap guns shoot "high." Many trap guns are designed to shoot 100% high...

    Choke constrictons

    My Mobil Choke Beretta are all .722 running bores, tight as a tick. Probably for use with both plastic and fiber wads in Europe?

    Training Alone For HRC

    Oh, yeah. I did. All I heard was "what's that hunk of junk?" :) Cretins.

    Benelli has been over-hyped for decades as to reliability on the 3.5" guns. I have painful first hand experience on that issue. The truth finally caught up to them on the SBE 3. The 3" guns are totally reliable, in my experience.

    Do you drive as fast as you used to.....

    I actually drive a little faster, b/c I have become tired of spending so much time driving.

    JJ lares t-1 help

    No, I don't get any sticking, but I have never gone longer than a 1.380. When I have my air built up, the call sounds awesome on the top end. I should practice more.

    JJ lares t-1 help

    I run a 1.370 in my T1 and it is a beast. The beauty of that call is that it will run anything from 1.320 to 1.380 to suit most any level of forward pressure/air presentation style. I believe there have been a few World Lives won with a T1 and a 1.365 reed (Brett). I know guys that run 1.380...

    The only problem with the Deceiver is if someone points it at you in the blind your ears may ring for 3 hours. :)
