"I" like camo but I hide well enough that I could wear neon colors and still kill birds.
Blades is the best camo in my area, by far but even it is too dark when it gets wet but on real wet days I wear OD green HH rain gear anyway.
Not the answer you're looking for but a friend of mine used heavier line and just pulled them up the bank. I think it was about 20 pound test. 5-6 pounds is about as big fish get here unless its during the salmon runs.
Cheaper pumps aren't. The Ithaca 37 and BPS are the 2 I hear about most. Both Federal and Kent's would stick in the chamber of my BSP regularly enough that I carried a cleaning rod until I bought more ammo.
No, it's not. You are comparing a near stationary mallard to a moving clay.What I said was to convey how easy it is to head shoot a hanging duck at 20-25 yards with a shotgun. Your responses make it sound like you don't shoot at many birds with their toes reaching for the water.
I may know that spot.
There is a ton more pressure here than there was 5 years ago. The spot I met you has 4-8 decoy spreads daily. Several places I had all to myself are pressured now. Word must have got out.
I used to shoot but long term diabetic eye damage ended that. I enjoyed skeet.
When you pull the trigger on a bird and notice your eye bleeding inside as you're walking out to get the bird it really rocks your world.
I hunt/have hunted your area and all around both of the bays. If we meet you...
Are you saying I pass shoot? I can't tell if you're saying similar to what I am or not. I keep the choke business simple. I've always used a tube that produces a 70%+ pattern and since I started with the .410 the remchoke full never leaves the barrel. I guess I'm lot diffent than 99% of you...
