Money to burn, what to get??

Postby Mugzwump » Mon Feb 24, 2014 2:29 pm

So I'm getting a nice chunk of cash to spend on hunting crap... I'm hemming and hawing about what to blow it on. Just looking for ideas, or some insight. I've got about $1000.00

So what I've really been looking at is a new gun. Before I get all kinds of flak for what I'm about to say, I'll first mention right now I shoot a gun chambered in 3" 12 ga, which has done plenty good.. but I'm looking to upgrade it to something a bit bigger... so I'm opting for a 10 gauge for goose season, instead of the 3.5" 12 ga. Just don't want this thread to turn into a discussion about twelves and tens and all that bull.

And seeing as I have a gun already... Maybe it would be better to buy more decoys? Or something I don't have already...?

What would you spend an extra 1000$ on?

I hunt snowgeese, canada's and ducks... plus everything else.

thanks

I'd get something you don't have unless you feel pretty much set on gear.

Mugz, I'm sure during this past season one or just a few things stayed in your head that "man that would really help me kill more birds......I'm gonna have that next year" or "next year I'm gonna try that".....I'm sure you had those thoughts or made those statements "cause we all do. So whatever they were, get them and put 'em to work next season.

That's a good one. not sure if I could find one around here for that price though, and I already have a canoe I decked out as my layout... just doesn't sit flat on the water like a layout would.

Idk what you call a layout but I'm referring to open water layouts (not marsh boats such as four rivers)

Used ones you can find for 600-1200 new ones depending on which you pick are 1200-1800. Make sure if you buy one you only buy one that's all glass. Save you a lot of work in the future. Also really pay attention to the profile, it's the second most important feature besides your safety.

I'm not sure what area you will be hunting but a momarsh or 4 rivers would better suit your needs. I tend to always look for tools that make my life easier. Decoys are next besides buying shotguns.

Drake Equator, maybe start stocking up on calls. Try some different brands of calls. That's what I'm thinking of doing.

...because ammo is something I'll always use, and I never have too much of.
and $1000 isn't enough for me to buy a good gun.

(the OP wanted to know what I/you would spend $1000 on....)

Yep.. ammo is a real consumable.. that's true. I already have cash set aside for my ammo, that's taken care of. I Couldn't possibly need more.

I think its a tossup now between the gun, decoys and my pops mentioned rebuilding the motor on the boat (reverse gear tanked last summer) Wise man... it's just not as exiting as buying new stuff....and no one needs reverse anyways.

I had an extra $1,000 like yourself a couple weeks ago and I just bought a brand new BPS 10 gauge for $600. I haven't shot it yet but it sure feels nice, a lot nicer then I thought it was going to. To me it was pretty balanced for being a 10 pound gun, and swings nice. Good luck with your shopping whatever you get! It's a nice feeling to go shopping of hunting stuff!! :thumbsup:

Sweet deal... up here a brand new BPS would run more like $800-$900. Gotta pay the man... and here in Quebec, that damn woman too! If it weren't for the taxes I might have gone for the BPS new. So I'm looking at the SP-10 used for about the same price. I haven't used a pump too much so that is swaying my decision too.

I have considered it though, I like how they eject down into the boat rather than 15 feet off the side like my 1187. ( or into the face of my hunting buddy)

Not sure. I wouldn't buy one if it shot magical rainbows. Remington couldn't make them reliable at all even though it is a cool concept.

Honestly I've never heard of it till now. Love that bottom eject though. Great concept. I'm surprised Remington would have made a gun that had issues. I've never heard much negative talk about Rem shotguns.
