    Let's build something...

    well there it is, finished product. 2-3 additional coats of sealer will be applied prior to use. I like to proto type with the larger size decoys to learn new techniques. The blending and the back filling of the scales was the learning experience on this one. Now I can scale it down to the size I need to make for the Alexandria show. Hope you guys enjoyed the process.

    Views from the Stand '16

    Went this morning for a quick sit. Hoping the cold weather would put them on their feet. Interesting walking in under the shadows of the nearly full moon! Did not see any this morning but it is a very good spot and I will be back!

    1st Shotgun

    My first shotgun was a Remington 870 express 12 ga. and my son's first shotgun was a Remington 870 express 20 ga. It is safe to say that we like Remington 870's and I don't think you could go wrong, especially for the price.

    I believe the 10in hole that he is talking of for his wheel house has to do more with the ice holes freezing down when it's really cold. Starting with a 10in and having it freeze down to 8in takes quite awhile vs comparing an 8in and having it freeze down to a 6in. Now if the holes keep open boiling water and dumping it in the hole really works well to open the hole back up. What is hard though is keeping a hole open when you leave for a few days.

    1st Shotgun

    Since I have a wing master that he will eventually have I thought I'd try to stay on the lower end of models but with a good product. I know how things go for teens/young adults and if something were to happen (dropped in a river/lake, left somewhere accidentally) replacement of it would be easier for HIM, and mom won't be quite as upset if the price wasn't so much. My 870 went in the drink when I was a young man growing up in LaCrosse,. WI. Was out duck hunting the sloughs north of Goose island and on a return trip back to my buddies house, sploosh, over the side it went in a back cut. Could not find it, and going home was not a fun thing, got quite the tongue lashing to say the least. Next day at high school I told my bud that we were going out after school back to the spot and I was going swimming. It took close to a half hour in the water, but I got it back. Tore it down to pieces, cleaned dried and oiled (and cleaned and oiled again) and it never missed a beat.

    1st Shotgun

    I got my 15 year old a 870 super mag camo last year. It is a very good all a round gun. It has a 28 " barrel and at only 5'7" it swings very nice for him.

    How about a wingmaster rather than the Express, no comparison in build and smoothness. I have a Wingmaster and a Sportsman ( Sportsman came out before the Express) . Wingmaster is super smooth, Sportsman isn't bad and alot better than the express's ..

    Same as using crossbows for archery season for those that don't need them. Oh yeah, I went there...

    I'm not sure 2oz and 2 inches makes much of a difference in carrying all day or swinging it in close quarters. Personally, I think the 26 vs 28 debate is Ford vs Chevy.

    1st Shotgun

    Haven't been down that road myself, but I was on the receiving end of a 870 express when I was 14. Still using it almost 25 years later, I actually just put a slug barrel and a scope on it this year. It's a great all around 1st gun that's really yours to own rather than dad's to borrow. Besides, literally everyone needs to own an 870.

    My son made a great shot on this tall spike on very first hunt. He has sat with me in the past but we decided mid week he was finally ready to take a shot if the opportunity presented itself, but first he had to pass the Grandpa deer hunting safety class!

    Venison Burger question

    Beef has fat built right in, but wild game burger needs a boost. You can use several things to up the fat content (and flavor) depending on what the final product is going to be. Bacon trimmings (sold in boxed form often called Ends and Pieces) add a great flavor to burgers and meat loaf. Beef fat and pork butt are both available from good butchers and make great fat additives. You can control the ratio of meat to fat, but I like somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 percent. Experiment until you find what's right for you.
