I only did it once. We had a hand held clay thrower. Worked like junk I thought. We ended up shooting alot of old dishes that day too. Hey, what shot # are you using for grouse?

Mostly 6 but I use different stuff all the time when new ammo comes out I like to try it out. For ducks and geese I usually use a 3 or 4 and grouse is usually a 6 or 7. What do you use? I tryed out BB shot for ducks this year and I hate em.

I've been using 8 for grouse. I'm thinking of switching back to a 6 after this season though. I picked up a box of 2 for ducks, but not sure if I'll make it out this year. My wife bought me a knew duck call for christmas last year, so I'd like to try. Last year was my first year with waterfowl, so I don't know much about what loads to use. I will say though, I enjoy the taste of goose much more than anyother bird I've ever had!

I've never had a wild turkey. I was thinking of doing it this year. There are alot of them on our land. I have to buy a tag for them, $6 us. Cheaper than at the store!

I eat it at buddies houses all the time, it amazing way better than store bought, store bought (farm raised turkeys) cannot even compare.

I'm assuming it's all dark meat in the wild turkey? You're suppose to use a larger shot size for turkey right?
