    Think we just pop the breasts out and sautee in butter? Been a few years, and I think we may have wrapped them in foil and thrown them on the grill during a shoot. There certainly wasn't anything fancy about it. Kind of a lot of work for 6 little darkmeat nuggets.

    That way you can add a few extra ones with shrimp, chicken, steak.

    Glaze the dove in jalapeño jelly and grill them. Don’t overcook.

    Firearm is in a week or so. What choke should I be using for buckshot?

    Can't use buckshot up here, slug only. I'll be interested to hear choke recommendations.

    What is the primary reason for shotgun only regulations?

    NJ is a very flat, densely populated state. They say rifles travel too far to be safe. If it were up to me I’d say just mandate that rifles can only be used from an elevated position.

    I wasn’t talking about brands. Sorry for confusion. I meant improved cylinder, modified cylinder or full.

    Id say full. As close to a turkey type shot as possible. Different best for ducks or running dogs for deer. Wider pattern for more margin for error

    Unless you’re planning on being right on top of the deer — e.g., a drive or dog hunt, I wouldn’t use anything other than full. There are also buckshot-specific chokes that might give you a slightly better pattern. Carlson’s makes one.

    Shot a doe Friday afternoon. I was hunting a hardwood bottom with a pretty decent incline on either side. She fell all the way to the bottom when I shot her, so dragging her out was a huge bitch. Probably the last time I’m going to shoot a doe there.

    On Thanksgiving morning I saw a doe and some fawns. Decided not to take the doe. My BIL saw some doe and some hogs but didn't shoot anything either. Later that night my sister in law was casually sipping wine in a tree stand, she's not that serious about hunting. Of course a 12 point buck walked out and she killed it.

    My hand eye goes out the window when I drink . I start sucking at golf, shooting, etc. So I just avoid it when hunting. I'm fine with shooting dove then drinking beer after.

    Man is that infuriating. Wind shifts and a buck gets a slight whiff of me and he’s out. They could’ve hunted that guy with a hammer if they chose to.

    Obviously the doe is in estrus. Not often to that degree, but bucks lose all sense when they're in rut.

    The campground we stay at has a “tame” doe that would walk through our camp. Smelled like shit, and a frisky 8 pointer would chase her around. He even went as far as trying to fight bucks we had hanging in a tree. Never occurred to me at the time but I should’ve fed her a cookie and rubbed my boots on her smelly ass.

    I don't think I'd want to be standing that close to him in the rut. Seems like a greater than 0% chance that fucker could try (and successfully) fuck you up.

    Some shooting houses I have sat in have a funnel in the back with a pvc pipe that goes into the ground. They also spend way too much money on some of these said shooting houses

    We used to shotgun a High Life in the dark before the first drive of the day if we'd gotten skunked the day before. Mmmm, cheap beer and the taste of toothpaste. Can't tell you if it worked, but you wake up quick if you think you're getting ready to yak....

    Heading to my friend's camp for a couple days. I have no deer tags for there, but I do have a bear tag. Good excuse to hang out, take my rifle for a walk, and nap in the woods.

    Went yesterday and damn if I didn’t wound the cull 6 I shot. Hit it in the shoulder and it made it out of the field.

    Was an absolute monster out there I could have shot if the 6 wasn’t in the field

    Grabbed an old office chair last year that was being thrown away and tossed in one of our shooting houses.

    I can lean back, spin around for different shots, all while being dead silent. Much more comfortable than a camp chair.
