Remington Versa Max Shotgun

submitted by: Dick Jones,Lewis Creek Shooting School

I admit it. Remington’s new Versa Max shotgun is starting to get on my nerves. I don’t normally become irritated with a gun and I realize it’s my own fault; I’m the one who made the decision not to clean it until it malfunctioned. At this point, it has 675 rounds through it from 3 ½” duck loads to 2 ½” RST super light 7/8 ounce shells meant for use in old vintage guns that might be damaged by modern high pressure loads. I even shot some 1,050 fps 7/8 ounce reloads and still… not so much as a hiccup. Every time I shoot it, it goes back into the safe dirty. I want to clean it but a promise is a promise.

KonusPro 3-10×44 Rifle Scope

The world is changing and sometimes the quality of a product so surpasses its low price it makes you wonder. Based on my personal experience, Konus scopes are a remarkable value. The latest one I’ve tried is the Konus KonusPro 3-10×44 Rifle Scope with Illuminated Reticule. This scope‘s features and quality clearly exceed its price bracket. My wife and daughter used it to bag five deer and a pig this season and they like it better than the premium priced scope that was on the Pre ’64 Model 70 they used last year. The illuminated reticule allows low light precision shooting and, in our area, the light can be really dim just before the end of the shooting day when deer are often most active.

Young Hunter Fills Her Bag

Carmen Pearson, 12, had already successfully hunted one turkey this season when she was heading out to hunt again with her grandfather, Jim Smith, in South Carolina. They had gotten off with a late start that morning, and were out calling by 7:30 am. After a half hour, there were three turkeys in shooting range. Carmen took her 12-gauge shotgun, and shot.

The dominant turkey was down, shot in the head. Her grandfather said, "You got two." Carmen looked at him with surprise and asked if he was sure. The bullet from Carmen's shotgun had struck two turkeys in the head.

Moose Visits Fargo

A moose was wandering the streets of Fargo, North Dakota. As of Friday morning the moose was being left alone as it had not posed a threat to anyone. The moose was being monitored by North Dakota Game and Fish Department.

Moose have been in the area before. In 2003, a moose and calf were killed and sparked a debate on how best to deal with moose, human interactions. So far this Fargo visitor is being left alone, and will most likely wander back into the woods on its own. From InForum.com.

Reward Offered for Finding Mountain Lion Mutilator

At the beginning of the week a mountain lion was struck and killed on Hwy 101 in California. By the time Fish and Game arrived on the scene the paws had been sawed off the mountain lion's front legs.

Wardens believe that someone, maybe with a police scanner had heard the report come in, and then before the fish and game were able to get there, had sawed off the paws. Most likely the person would try to sell the paws as it is illegal to posess any part of a mountain lion in California.
