    Nice gun!


    Shot this stud rooster yesterday after work. Too warm out to find many birds. [​IMG]

    Yes it does. For some reason I like this high rib versus my last. Natural point of aim is really good for me on this one.

    Shot 75 rounds today doing 3 rounds of skeet. Gun performed flawlessly. Zero issues. Still needs to be put to the test though of some good hunts. Duck split opens back up for me next Saturday.

    I have the xtrema 2, put thousands of rounds through it and thrown it around marshes and fields, dropped in the water, shook it off and cycled a few times, no issues. Great guns, and can take a lot of punishment. If I ever wear mine out might have to look into one of those.

    Nice, I prefer a high rib myself. I have a couple original SBE’s that have been very good to me over the years but you can never have to many guns.

    6A7BF8F5-2E8A-402D-8F13-15EF13EA94A3.png What do you know. Season is over in southern Illinois and over 300k ducks show up. I usually hunt kecks marsh area on this survey. 140k ducks show up after season. There was 1500 there when I checked right before season ended. I hear There is a proposal to push all season dates later by 21 days in Illinois. I hope so. The waterfowl hunting here is pathetic. If not I’m gonna start unloading all my decoys and gear.

    I feel you. I basically went through the same thing here. I unloaded all my big high dollar gear, trailer, fullbodys, duck boats, layout boat etc and scaled my decoys back to the bare minimum. As my daughter gets older I may get back into it more as I’ll have more time to travel. Time will tell.

    Feel like the seasons need to be later in many different states, esp with the lack of weather we are getting during the season! We aren't getting a good push of birds down, at least not until the season is over! We had some decent cold days earlier in the season here in NY, thought it would maybe be a good year, then it got super mild again and we are just fighting blue bird days with stale birds! Was a struggle once again this year.

    Just curious if any of you guys are shooting Boss Shot Shells? I am very interested in making the switch and have only heard good things so far.
