So I took my SBE II to the gun range today to do some sight-ins. 1st shot, I didn't expect the kick back and WHAM! The Holosight smacks me right in the nose. Took off a good amount of skin on the bridge of me nose. OUCH, I was all blurry eye and all. crazy.gif With the SBE II and Hornady SST 300 grain slugs, that thing kicks worse then a mule dear on a rute!

Uff Da!

Slugs are not much fun IMO.

I started out shooting slugs with a 20 gauge when I was about 16 and that was no fun. Heck of a way to develop a flinch when shooting.

That sounds about like a guy that is used to shooting a .223 getting ahold of a .300 Mag. Scope eye for sure for that boy.

I was told that the Bolt Action 30.06 has more kick back then the Auto's

That is generally the case anything with a auto action part of the action works buy absorbing the impact of the recoil with a bolt, pump, lever or fix there is no room for the recoil to go but directly into your shoulder so yes a auto will have less kick than others. However a bolt will tend to be more accurate than an auto loader though.

I'd like to try a 30.06 once.. But we don't ever hunt up north so I've never had the chance to. The one time we went north for bear hunting, our tires were slashed so we avoided going up north. And I don't want to go into Wisconsin.. haha

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
