Weatherby pa 08 shotgun Questions

Recommended Posts


My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

Sorry can't help with the Weatherby, but we all shoot the Mossberg 500 and have had zero issues with them.  Remind me a lot of the older 870's

the mossberg 500 is not close to the quality of a 870 Wingmaster. I won a 500 at a banquet  and my son hunts with it. It is a very solid gun but I will take my Wingmaster any day.

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.
      Thanks in advance!

      Ya it was nasty. Went from 202 down to 168 in 30 days. Couldn’t sleep or eat much. Crazy time!!

      Where I'm at way plenty ice. Out of bugbee give, the west road. Watching tipups. There is a group further out.   I'm pretty sure I'm in the windmill point area but not 109%certain. In 13 ft of water, have had perch on the camera non-stop but no water wolves yet.

      First, my bad. I mistyped when I wrote that we thought it was over 25". Our estimate was more like 24".   Maybe the photo doesn't quite do it justice and remember, we are fishermen so we can sometimes exaggerate the truth. 🙃 I admit we did not measure it and without doing so we cannot confirm nor deny that it was approaching or possibly over 24" but every June for the past 20 years we have been chasing walleyes on the Lac Seul in Ontario and it is common for us to encounter smallmouths. Many of those that we catch measured in the 22" - 23" range and both of us believed this one was larger than any either of us previously caught. I remember my words when I netted it for him, "Wow! What a hog of a smallmouth!" It was fun and will live in our memories for sure.

      Hope it goes well for you eyeguy!!👍 I had a minimally invasive back surgery  back in 2017. Can't believe I waited 12 years to do it. Yea they gave me oxy but I did not like how it made me feel. Know I know what a female feels like with hot flashes. UFFDA! I quit taking them.

      Just a dumb question because i had someone ask me. Does anyone know if a person bought a 2020 license, would it be valid the rest of this season or starting March 1st. 
    • eyeguy 54
      Already had two back surgeries. 2006. 2010. First one went a lot better than second. Narcotics 9 months and terrible withdrawals. That’s why ibuprofen for this trip under the knife. I did the shoulder block. Only way to go for the first day of relief.

      Just looking for ice thickness and hows the travel will I be ok with my 4×4 or do I need to bring the wheeler?

      I hope it’s worth it for you too.  Back issues are the worst!  Relief is GOLDEN!
    • eyeguy 54
      Doing ok. Went the ibuprofen route so first few days were rough and I growled a lot. lol. Itchy now. All worth it hopefully 😁

      Wow I used to catch smelt out on that pit at night when I was bored and not catching anything else. I legitimately have never caught a laker through the ice but this lakenjas always been in the back of my head after loosing a big fish out there. Looks like some beautiful Lakers there!!
