Awesome! Pretty impressive shooting for a young man. Maybe he could teach me a thing or two! Congratulations!

Great Pics. I love to see young hunters having a great time. Also looks like a very nice size grouse.

Is that a youth 870 he is using? I have a youth 870 my dad bought me about 15 years ago that I still use once in awhile. Out off all the guns in my collection that one brings back the most memories.

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

Very nice, a memory that will stick with you both forever.

Best guess is that picture will be in a frame and on his dresser for a long time.

870 youth JUNIOR model the smallest 20 ga. remington makes.

He likes that gun. Carries it himself the whole way. Loads and unloads it himself. Always checks that the safety is on. Im glad we chose this over the mossberg.

Look at that proud look. Dont you have to be 12 and have completed a gunsafety course or is that if you are big game hunting only?

Ok I assumed that you had to be 12 and complete a gun course for all hunting. I did not know it was big game only. I bet that little gun would be awesome for even an adult to carry into the grouse woods. I have a little sxs spanish made hammered 20 that is short and is a great shooter and light to carry. It was an old gun that just sat in my father in law's closet for years. it needed a firing pin and the chokes were too tight. New pins and opened the barrels up and many a grouse has fallen cool.gif

      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!
