Steel Shot for Doves

Recommended Posts

Andrewsdad

I finally found some 7 1/2's for my daughter's 20 gauge in steel for dove hunting. Found it at WalMart in Rochester. We hunt all public land so I stick to the steel. Is anyone else having problems finding steel for use with doves? I have found anything for my 12 gauge yet. My son wants to shoot his .410 but I can't find steel for that at all. I checked at Cabela's last night and they were of no help. Any ideas or is anyone else running into this problem?

I got some steel 7 shot (Winchester) from Gander Mountain in St. Cloud...had it along while goose hunting this morning and ended up shooting a DOUBLE-BANDED pigeon! Nice to have some dove loads in the blind during early goose.

Since the geese didn't cooperate, we opted to change gears and ended the day with 32 doves!

I found 7's for the 12 gauge at Scheels's. I looked for some 410 steel I have an old single shot that I thougt would be fun to try out for doves but no steel yet. I think its funny shooting that gun but I have pics of gramps with plenty of pheasants that he shot with that gun. Good luck I will keep looking and post if I fing anything.

If anyone in rochester is looking for steel shots try Gander Mt. There are some #7 steel shots available for gauges (12, 20, .410) I believe. I bought my 12 guage steel shots there today.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
