    I'd LOVE to bag a Scramble maybe even more so than any hybrid duck....maybe.

    Who does euro mounts?

    $100 seems like a great deal. The taxidermist I use is charging something like $175, enough it convinced me to attempt my own this year. Wasn't overly difficult and turned out nice.

    Was back out this morning and scratched out a solid 10. They made me work it, hiked 11.5 miles. Started in the same spot I hunted on the opener but the birds wouldn't hardly let me anywhere near them (running then flushing out of range). Hiked over to some new country (same general area) that was maybe less pressured and had better luck. It's been a wonderful season so far.

    Huh, that is odd. You headed back out again soon?

    I had two half boxes, right around 25 shells. I'm no purist, grounded pounded 6, got the other 4 outta the air. Target rich, must have been 100+ birds in a small area.

    I'm an idiot, thought I had more shells in the truck than I did. Should have check before heading out. Gonna try to get back out mid next week. Hopefully you're knocking them down as I type! Good luck!

    Had a great opening morning hike, bagged 10. Would have easily been a limit but ran outta ammo ๐Ÿคจ

    Doesn't get any better than this. Saw a pile of Gambel's checking some desert deer cams today. Pumped for tomorrow AM. ๐Ÿค

    Need Glassers in unit 22 tonight & tomorrow morning

    Wish I had seen this earlier, would have loved to have helped out. But looks like it ended perfectly. Congrats to Thomas on a GREAT buck!

    Quail loads

    Never thought much about this but always find myself using 7.5s. Seem to get the job done.

    Trying to obtain high FOC - without killing velocity

    I agree with wht_mtnman here. I shoot victory VAPS at 8.7 gpi. Without spending more than a minute on this you could lessen your arrow weight ~22 grains with these shafts, shoot 125g broadheads vs 100, increase FOC and keep nearly the same total arrow weight. Also, theoretically you should get better penetration with 4mm shafts than the 5s.

    The Draw

    Just got my apps in yesterday for everything. I'll draw javi but that's probably it. ๐Ÿ™„

    Similar experience here. Been seeing LOADS of Gambel's. Looking forward to knocking down a couple.
