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.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
