Obviously there's no need to wish you a merry christmas!! Congratulations and use it in good health. Kirrmeister's right though. Don't lean it against a tree or you wont find it till the leaves change color!!! Happy hunting!
Merry Christmas and welcome to the great world of hunting. Thats a beautiful gun. Take good care of it and you'll always remember this holiday.
My Dad gave me my first gun when I was 11 yrs old ...for Christmas. It was a Marlin/Glenfield .22 cal bolt action. It has a 7 shot clip and a 26" barrel. A lot of squirrels and rabbits made it to the stew pot because of that gun. I recently gave it to my daughter for her hunter safety class. She won't give it back!
Always keep it clean and oiled and it will last a lifetime. Happy hunting and be safe. Welcome to BGH
Thats a grt shotgun you will be very happy with it I shoot a nova and my personal opinion is that benelli is the fastest pump gun on the market I also shoot an O/U berretta 686. Good luck hunting with it.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
