  1. Good luck to you, Mudhen. Let us know how you do..Mike
  2. Good luck to you, D.U. This bird was shot in Florence Co. The northeast part of the state. I hope the weather clears for you. My nephew has a tag for this Wed.>Sun. He hunts in the Green Bay area, and they are supposed to get slammed again today and tomorrow with 6-10'' of snow. This madness has to stop.. Mike

    SBE II Break In

    Anything that is put together with tight tolerances is prone to be a little sticky until the edges get rounded off, so to speak. You may not have to ''break'' the gun in, per se, but the more that it is shot, the better it will function. By oiling the rails and bolt and such, and shooting shells that are more than the minimum, this will effectively knock those edges off and give you a reliable gun that your son will enjoy for his lifetime, when you are done with it...Mike
  4. This is the gobbler that my Uncle shot on Saturday, in Wi. The weather was terrible. 2'' of snow and 20-30 mph winds. We had 6'' of snow by Sunday. I didn't have a tag, so I did the calling for him and his son. He shot him at 40 yards with a facefull of Win. Hi-Velocity #6's, Hastings .660 choke, out of a Nova. Graveyard dead. I love this stuff..Mike
  5. If money is not an issue, I would buy the SBE ll, without hesitation. Both will do the same things, both are good guns, but an auto vs. a pump. The auto wins, in my opinion. You mentioned that the SBE ll pulls up the best. That would end the debate for me..I own both, and would not consider using the Nova, if the SBE was available..Good luck with your decision..Mike
  6. Way to go, Chris. Nice looking bird. You don't have to be a pro at calling to get it done..Well done..Mike

    2011 turkey

    Very nice bird. He is definitely a limbhanger. Well done, HH.
  8. That's a awful nice bird you got there, Mudhen. Those are some daggers on that ol' boy. Nice..You use the SBE ll and the 3'' shells? Way to go..Mike
  9. He had health issues (lung ailment of some kind) a year or two ago, and evidently couldn't fulfill his contract terms, or whatever. It was bad enough that even he didn't think that he would work again. Somewhere, somehow, that's were the romance ended. This is of course, all hearsay. It did not come from the horses mouth, so to speak. So, take it for what it is worth..Mike
  10. That's where the guy says that's the least I can do. I was married to her for forty years..
  11. I bought a BPS 10ga. a few weeks ago, and all she said was, ''That will be one more to sell at the rummage sale after I (meaning me) die''. She is so sweet..Mike
  12. That is a beautiful bird you got there, Fla. He is definitely a stud of an osceola. Well done, My friend..Mike
  13. Very nice, Tucker. Is it 12 or 20? Looks like 12. I need to get me one of those some day..
  14. I agree with that. Different ammo can make a difference, as will a different choke. I would try and find the ammo that I wanted to shoot, and if it did not shoot to POA, scope the gun, or put some sort of adjustable sights on it. Kentucky windage is the only other option. And that's not a good one..
  15. First of all, putting in the thickest shim will, in fact, lower your POI. It will not lower it 16''. I would put the shim in and see what happens. A taller front sight will help, also. If you are shooting slugs out of this thing, put a scope of some sorts on it so you can adjust it to your needs. Take it off when you bird hunt. It is that simple.
  16. I would say that you ARE a goodgirlfriend. Buying a Benelli for your boyfriend is awesome..That would break the ice for me..Mike
  17. Those use the crio system. The other system is the mobile choke. I really don't know what a crio+ is.
  18. How about that, Skeeter. Who'd a thunk it when they were 3 and 3 and Rogers was out with a concussion. Unbelievable. Imagine how tough they would have been without the injuries. They should be better next year. Now we need a repeat. Ooh Rah..Mike
  19. She sure is a hairy little monkey..
  20. I think it's a big fat guy with an AR..
  21. I really don't know what people like that are thinking. They come into these forums (as newbies) throwing daggers at the folks who have been here forever. What a way to influence people that you intend to hold a conversation with. Your credibility is shot before you lose your junior staus. Now that is someone I will listen to. NOT. Grow up, junior. You are not known well enough around here to be missed when you leave..
  22. Any gunsmith will have them. Otherwise, Brownells, but you will need to know the thread size..
  23. I have dealt with them on several occasions, and have had nothing but good service from them. You hear horror stories, but I guess you'll have that every once in a while. You can't please everyone, all the time. Good job, Benelli..
  24. I have an Indian Creek for my SBE l and it works good, not great. 180's in a 10'' circle at 40 yards with 3.5 21/4 h-13 #6. It shoots 270's with the #7's. I have no experiences with the Kicks..Mike
  25. Nothing wrong with that pattern. POI is great also. That'll get the job done. Crisis averted..
