MY worst luck day as well today...

Postby dablaw » Sun Dec 26, 2010 8:25 pm

So me and my 17 yeear old have been hunting all weekend even Christmas and been killing the hell outta some Bills and Cans...Having the time of our life...We get down there today to whoop up on em again and get a few dekes out, get the boat all ready, and My son is getting in the front part of the boat with his gun in hand..Trips on the ahchor with his big ole boats for feet and splash into the water his gun goes...Blub blub blub...Well at this point I just decided to load up and get back to town..Got back and got a really good magnet that would pick up a truck, and go back down with the expectations of getting this gun..Tried for 3 hours and can feel it on the bottom but for what ever reason, maybe because all of the other metal, I just can't get it...I may go back and get a long piece of meatl conduit and try to tap and find it exactly and take the magnet again or a treble hook and try and get it...If I run the rope through the conduit and tie on the drag hook, I may be able to get it..It's in exactly 15 feet of water and 50 feet off the bank..I know EXACTLY where it is just for the life of me cant get it...

So anyone want to make some quick cash diving with scuba gear??It would take a diver all of 30 seconds or less to get it..It's an 870 express with synthetic stock so not a pricy gun at all...But I'll give someone a quick 100 bucks to dive and get it...Anyone know of someone let me know..I'm already contacting Mainstream Diver in Murray in the morning, just though I'd ask...I have pleant more 870's exactly like it so It's not like we can't hunt, But just would like to get it if possible..So damned close, just pee's me off I can't get it..

On the flip side, I went back home and ot another one and went back loaded and ready, so after we tried for 3 hours to get the gun we threw out some dekes and killed 1 hen buffy,4 drake bills and 2 drake cans..High 5's and knuckle bumps kinda broke the crappy mood of the day....
I'm an old fart , but young at heart...Been there,done that, wrote the freakin book...When i die I hope it's at sunrise, with a gun in my hand, and the sound of wings overhead...

Got a diver to get the gun for me this morning..3 days at the bottom of the lake and first thing I did was check for obstructions in the barrel...then loaded a shell and it went Boom like it always did..Happy boy today..Dad's kinda glad too..

Just thought I would post this l;ink for anyone that may want to vote for my son mike that dropped his gun in the lake...We got the gun back and Remeington sent him some nice Mossy Oak duck blind synthetic stocks to dress it up a bit...With a repaint job and the new stocks the gun look and shoots great..Thanks for considering..Again this is for him not me..
