Re: Any place to dove hunt?

I might be repeating myself, but here goes.... A dove breast is two chicken mcnugget-sized pieces of dark rich meat, and two tiny slivers of white meat between those dark pieces and the breastbone. Unless you've shot the crap out of your dove, these are easy to filet off the breast (or cook them int...

Re: Any place to dove hunt?

So I ended up getting permission from a farmer in St. Johns County to use his field opening Sat. afternoon. Mix of cover crop (some kind of a tall seashore plant) and sweet potatoes. By myself. Could hear a private shoot a couple miles south and another a couple miles north of me, with regular but o...

Re: Any place to dove hunt?

Yes, that has been my general experience, too, at least south of Gainesville. Add to that the increasing public and governmental antipathy toward guns, and it has almost made me want to just switch almost solely to fishing. Unfortunately, I’m boatless, and Florida does not lend itself well to freshw...

Red Flag Law constitutional, but Terror Watchlist isn't????

https://apnews.com/f8abc66af1a64cc7a5f4fba0420cfc54 US judge: Terror watchlist violates constitutional rights So no due process, errors in the reporting, and presuming guilt and making the accused prove his innocence, all to protect the public, is cool when it's about the constitutionally-protected ...

Any place to dove hunt?

A buddy from and I are looking for an active dove field for opening day (9/28) and the first Sat. in October, somewhere between Orlando and Lake City, roughly. I had some great hunts on paid fields in the Gainesville area years ago. The wife may want to join us, too. And I sat for 5 grueling hours i...

Re: .400 CorBon

I bought a .400 CorBon barrel for my Sig p220 (Browning BDA .45) a few years back, and some reloaded ammo, but I've never shot it. I'd even forgot I had it, till I saw your post. Now I don't even remember why I bought it.

Re: Anyone hit the new Shooters World in Orlando?

They gave out a bunch of free 1-hr range time cards at the recent Friends of the NRA Dinner in Orlando. I'm thinking of going to try it. But meanwhile, I've decided to go going the gun club in East Orlando. And I'm gonna do an Appleseed 22LR clinic this fall, in Gainesville, Thanksgiving weekend, I ...
