This season will be my second waterfowl season since a very, very long hiatus.
Very long as in 1978 or so. It seems like I must have fallen off the edge of the earth
and finally I'm back again.
Even though I only hunted the final two days of last season, it was truly great...
even like a thing of beauty packed into 48 hours. I am really anticipating
the coming season and slowly gearing up for it.
This past summer, I bought a hardly used Remington 1100 Magnum, equal or better
than what I saved up for and bought new as a 15 yr. old. The last northern mallards
that semi-auto hammered, were from a flock that I watched dive out of the clouds
by twos, threes, fives and sixes for about an hour and a half.
This happened in the forks of the Angelina-Neches river bottom while deer hunting.
I finally decided to shuck out the buckshot, replace with Remington Peters No.4 shot
and sneek up on them belly crawling through the hardwood bottoms. That flock
numbered in the area of 500 to 1,000 birds and something I had never seen before.
So, the native returns, and in returning, I have alot of questions, please bear with me.
One of which, is wanting to see what patterns a Remington 1100 Mag will do, which
I have not done yet. All this talk of patterning is intriguing, not even to mention reloading.
If any of you all have any Remington 1100 patterns to show, please post and include barrel length,
choke, shot size, distance, etc.
Comments, suggestions, advice very much welcomed.
