Steel Shot for Doves

6 posts in this topic

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.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
