Dove...

Postby Ducksbeus » Tue Sep 05, 2006 10:02 am

My son and I hooked with with Greenheadman for an EXCELLANT weekend of dove slayin'...Limits both Saterday and Sunday. Nova drew blood,as I have a scab forming over the multiple layers of bruising about my shoulder. We let a group of Early Honkers slide by....that WONT happen again THIS weekend...Did y'all get into any shootin' over the weekend?

Didn't fire any but glad to hear someone did and had a good weekend. It was a great weekend for it since the temps weren't as bad.
There's a reason it's called huntin' and fishin' instead of killin' and catchin'

Duckbeus, I take it that you have a benelli nova and have a sore shoulder from it. So light weight it kicks like heck on field load. With mine, it seems to kick harder on field load than on 3 1/2 high brass. Gotta be the heavy clothing for cold weather though. I put the recoil bracket and reducer in this year. It did help alot with the recoil, but to me, the gun is as sweet, it does not shoulder as well. The stock end is heavier now and when I pull it up, it doesnt go to that sweet spot. So Sunday and Monday I pulled it out and it I shot much better. Bruise or no bruise, the birds were in the bag after the change. If you do get one to try, gotta have a longer than normal screwdriver to install the bracket.

Went out saturday on a second weekend hunt. It was out of this world. My bosses family farms near Tunica and they have a fantastic field they do every year. The field sat idle since opening weekend. The birds really started coming in hard around 4 making a great hunt. I got 17, don't jump to conclusions, I got two ringnecks which have no bag limit.
A great time was had by all.
