I just get kinda down when, I get back to the local boat landing to find a bunch of young fellas, with their brand new Benellis, a brand new Gator Trax, 2 dozen mojos, and trucks that you need a ladder to get into, talkin about all the birds they saw and "shot at" but have none in the boat. Or how these guys were set up in "their spot" so they had to set up right beside em and sky bust birds all morning because those guys wouldn't quit calling "their birds"?. In these instances I occasionally get questioned on my success... If I reveal any bagged game, I am almost always immediately drilled on the location of my hunt. Not can I come with you sometime or would you mind takin me sometime or can I help you scout sometime. [/quote]
That has to be one of the most ridiculous generalizations about how people act because of the equipment they have I have ever heard. I'm not saying it never happens, but it seems you truly believe every one that shoots a Benelli acts this way. And then to pat yourself on the back with the part about bragging to them what you shot? Makes you no better than them, should have just told them you shot nothing, so it's your fault they wanted to move in on "your spot". Never brag to tool looking strangers at the ramp about what you shot. I never shoot anything except if Mr DNR asks.
