Just Making Sure

Recommended Posts

So stopped by the range just to make sure the gun was all sighted in. Shooting the Hornady SST 12 ga "slugs" if you can call them that! Unbelievable! 5 shots inside 2-3 inches at 100 yards! looked like one big ragged hole. Rem 870 w/ rem rifled barrel, and bushnell tropy variable scope. If i miss one, it will not be due to inaccurate ammo! No wonder they're sold out everywhere. good hunting to all getting out this weekend, be safe have fun, and take PICS!! cool.gif

How much do the Hornady's cost? I have the same Rem. 870 with the Re. rifled barell and shoot the Winchester Sabot's thru them. At 50 yds it was dang near dead on. I did not try 100yds because I can barely see 50yds from my stand. Just wondering how much they cost? Winchester's were $10 a box.

I just saw these online last night. I do not shoot slugs but if I did those would be it! Biff, I think hornady has them for 15 something on their web site.

I have used them for 2 years out of a benelli. They are devistating. However, I never get a good blood trail with them. They are very accurate and I have busted through 2 sholders with perfect expansion. The entry and exit hole are no larger than a dime though. That didn't matter in my case because combined 3 deer didn't move more than 20 yards after the shot. They are great rounds and I think the Winchesters are exactly the same only more expensive. I bought SST's for 11.99 at Gander.

I put down a deer today using the Winchestor Sabot's and put a pretty good hole through the kill zone. Have not shot these winch at more than 50 yrds. I will try the Hornady's next year. The deer I shot was no more than 30yds away.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!
