I'm going to use it again this spring and make a final determination. It patterns really well out of my gun so I'm pretty sure I can't lose.


I'm stickin with the Hevi-13 #6 in my 20 ga. Beretta. Tried patterning the Magnum Blend in #5,6,7 and they didn't do as well. Guess my little "pop gun" doesn't like 'em.

My wifey has a low sitting chair like the one you mentioned but it is a Drake university chair. All I should need is a little bit of black and green spray paint and it should be good to go. Like you said an uncomforatable set up gets really old and painful fast.

I am going to try and learn to use a mouth call and practice it in the car on the way to work so I can be more hands free on the hunt.

Get ready for some strange looks from your fella' commuters. Roll windows up at all traffic lights LOL. The good part is that you'll save money by not having to get a divorce :lol:

It's kinda new...last year in the spring contest we did a traveling call, team contest for the biggest bird. I won and got the the call. Scott from Willowridge calls donated the call. Its a beautiful looking and sounding call that brought a nice mature bird to my gun. It will be with me everyday this year rather than just one week.

I picked up a Trueglo Red/Green dot 1x scope/sight for the 11-87 Sportsman Supermag a few weeks ago. I've always liked the idea of just using the bead for turkeys but wanted to try the red dot sight to better use the gun for slugs etc. I sighted it in at 50yds with slugs and it will shoot a good group. I like the idea of having both eyes open and focused on the target. I took it out the other day and shoot a few rounds of trap with the red dot and it worked great! so far I'm pretty happy with the addition.

I am not too concerned about the fellow commuters as it seems half of them are either trying to text/talk or whatever on their phone or there is a fair amount trying to put on their makeup in the morning, freaking idiots. Happy wife happy life!
