    Speed Ball Pattern

    Your velocities will be the same with a longer barrel because the maximum velocity is reached at 22 inches. And personally I'm going to stick with my 1 1/8 #3 shot Winchester HV's if these new shells are only pushing 1500 fps.. 1700+ fps is fast in my book.. anything below that is just average.

    CALIFORNIA LAW ! Are FOWARD GRIPs Allowed on a pistol Grip Shotgun

    Yes, as long as it's classified as a home defense gun with a barrel no shorter than 18.5 inches.

    I don't know about you guys but this year is flying by for me.. we're only four months out if you think about it.
  6. I'm 6' 04" 185lbs just to give you and idea about the size of these geese I hunt.
  7. You were right. Same cup size equals same number of pellets. When I'm hunting geese though, especially Honkers, I only run 3 1/2's. Either #2's or BB with a Patternmaster Choke because I don't want to risk crippling one of these birds..
  8. No, the pellet count will be less in a 3" 20 gauge shell than it will be in 12 gauge load.
  9. Here's the thing, I like shooting a 20ga here and there but it doesn't have enough pop for me when it comes to killing big ducks let alone geese.. you do not want to be under-gunned when pulling up on a flock of committed Honkers. Trust me on that one, I see it happen to my buddy all the time..

    Hunting Iowa?

    Has anyone hunted in Iowa for either ducks and geese or deer? And if so, what'd you think of it?

    Duck Calling

    I don't know how many of you on here are into calling and working birds but that along with working my lab with hand signals on a retrieve are the two reasons why I duck hunt. I was recently offered a pro staff position from Blitzkrieg Game Calls but I told Lynn, the owner, that I wouldn't sign with him unless his calls really impressed me. And to be honest, I wasn't expecting much because I have hunted with RNT, Zink, and Foiles calls in the past.. I was wrong, these calls were bad ass to say the least. It was the best call I've ever picked up.. and I here I took first place in a meat calling contest last October with my Foiles Dead Meat. This one blew my Foiles out of the water. So needless to sign I signed with Lynn, and if any of you guys are looking for a good deal on a very good duck call, message me and I'll see what I can do for you.

    I'm just hoping for some weather this next season, then I'll be good.

    crow hunting?

    I hunt crows to keep them out of my almond orchards and in my opinion they are way to damn easy to shoot.. I'll go in full leaf camo and play my distressed rabbit call that I use for hunting Coyotes, then its just a matter of how close to I want them to be before I open up. My dad told me a while back that he would pay me a dollar a crow and that deal lasted only one day. To stay on my game after duck season I shoot pigeons from the neighboring dairy from February through September. I mostly do that to better train my dog though..
