A Few Things For Fall
« on: July 30, 2019, 08:34:35 PM »
So Federal "PREMIUM" TSS shotshells are basically $10 a round. My Father and I have been debating whether to switch over or not. I've admitted that as often as I'm out hunting turkey I'll have to give in to the TSS itch eventually. The price tag is making it easier to hold out. I suppose when they come down to a more modest $5 a round I'll HAVE to switch. We are sticking with Winchester Longbeards for now.

I've got a tag left over from Spring and an oath of vengeance to enact upon a flock of turkey and I'll be making good come September. I'm taking the old man out to Colville again to make my dream of getting him a turkey come true. My Brother and my Niece will be meeting us there. My mission, should I choose to except it, will be a first turkey for all of them. So I'm headed to the field of battle with a heavy family weight and a chip on my shoulder. There will be blood, and if all goes as planned it won't be mine. I'll be grabbing a second tag in Colville just in case. I learned the hard way to always have two.

After number crunching I found I could get a big game Cougar tag and small game license for like $5 more than just a small game. After getting busted by a cougar a few years back trying to bag some turkey I have a score to settle.

Wish me luck. I have one week to kill four turkey for me, four turkey for Dad. With three days to kill two turkey for Brother, two turkey for Niece, and a fat cougar for me whenever. Maybe some crawdads and fishing during all the free time.

yep. Tungsten is expensive. you can shoot #9 shot and your pattern density is the big improvement at 40yds and shooting 9's are close to shooting 4's in current turkey magnum pellet loads, all about the pellet count in a 10" ring @40yds... not something your gonna burn at geese by the box, but shooting just a couple rounds a season, with all other expenses (time, gas, ect) really small potatoes in the grand scheme! Tough expense (for me) was running a pattern check on these but i am sold...

The September trip is pretty well locked in and I'm already getting short timers at work. As I mentioned my 11 year old niece will be coming to hopefully harvest her first turkey ever. I've got a few spots picked out that I took birds last year but I like to be well prepared. We will be out between Kettle Falls and Chewelah. If anyone out there has some property with turkey they would be willing to let her hunt drop me a PM. The goal is to get her at least one turkey on a three day license, so us adults won't mind just having her hunt the property. Thanks, and good luck to everyone headed out in September.
