    Noisy generator Law!!

    What's your thoughts on this idea!!I think there should be a law if you're going to use a generator,you should have to keep it within 10 ft. of your icehouse!You don't want to listen to it, I sure the hell don't!What gets me are the people that run 50-100ft cords and set them near my house!I'm just venting because last night a guy did this, I got so [PoorWordUsage]ed at midnight I went home!! That or get a Honda!! Later Jigster

    Scopes on muzzleloaders?

    So what are everyones thoughts on this one!I just read there is a bill to allow Minnesotans to hunt with scoped muzzleloaders.With all the debate over deer management and quality of bucks,is this something we need?I understand the debates of a cleaner kill,but aren't the new inlines accurate enough.I don't know if I can support this one.While they're(politicians) at it, they may as well let us all use cross-bows instead of bow & arrow.

    Browning Gold

    I hate to say this,but man it's nice to know I wasn't the only one to deal with the Golds problems!I will not buy another Browning shotgun as long as I live.The one I had would not eject the 3 1/2's so I sent it back.Had it returned,took it out, same talk!Sent it back to Browning it took seven months before I got a new one.Talked about [PoorWordUsage]ed off!I'll stick to my 11-87 and replace a O-ring every 5 yrs. Good huntin',fishin',shootin'or drinkin' which ever you prefer!! Jigster

    T/C Encore Pistol

    I have a Encore in the .308 cal and the bark is worse than the bite! The thing about the Encore is once you have the frame you're options are endless.Handgun,rifle,blackpowder or shotgun as long as you are willing to purchase other stocks and fore-ends.I just set mine up with the 50 cal. muzzleloader barrel and it's a tack driver. Also for those of you who shoot T/C Encores or other comparable handguns,what kind of groups can you shoot at given yardages.Just curious!! Tripper, How do you like the 7-30 Waters? Good shootin' and huntin' Jigster

    White Turkeys

    We have a group of 20-30 turkeys feeding near our property.Several of them have white mixed in with their natural colors.I know it isn't because of the snow or to blend in with the snowcover because they retain this color in summer and fall also.They are not all white so I do not consider them albino!Just curious if anyone has any answers!! Thanks for any info! Good huntin' Jigster
