    Outside 30-35 yards, steel 2's are so ballistically superior to steel 4's & 6's (even the screaming fast ones), that it's not even funny. Hyper-velocity steel loses its velocity (& energy) very,...

    I agree w/ Zeb. While you don't see loads actually called "Magnum" much anymore, some of them still exist. You just need to be more cognizant of the load specs (obviously weight & velocity) in your...

    I don't remember winds like that before. I don't believe a tornado was terribly close to my house, but we were right in the storm's path. No serious injuries reported that I'm aware of, but lots of...

    Camera angles can be pretty deceiving. But it sure looks like the bird was between the 2 guys & in my opinion, neither should've even mounted his gun until the bird had passed. Yes, both guns were...

    I've shot & patterned a lot of bismuth. It tends to behave more like lead than steel. I agree that patterning it will give you the best info, since every gun/load/choke combination behaves...

    So I wonder....if a guy got some drake mallard decoys, painted some red on the sides of their heads, fashioned some long pheasant-like tails onto them, & threw them out into some slough.....hmmm....

    That's kind of a "loaded" question. Lots of variables, probably the biggest one being shot material - lead, steel, some other non-tox? With steel, velocity matters more so than with others.

    Not here. That said I'll follow this. My S16 doesn't pattern anything well that's over, say, 1350 fps. Mine is "old" style, made in the early 90's in Japan.

    Would it be asking too much for the GF&P to superimpose the 110 routes onto the online Public Hunting Atlas & label each one w/ the PPM for the year? (Would surely lead to hunting rage, so probably...

    As inaccurate as the brood survey can be, I think it WILL indicate that only isolated small portions of the state got hit hard. Because the truth is, the winter & spring in most areas just weren't...

    While I don’t put much stock in the brood survey because it really only shows trends at best…..I do love pheasant season & I do love playing with numbers.

    Correct, once & for all, SD GF&P does NOT release pheasants.

    But....some private land owners do. And any place that operates as a "preserve" has to by law. I think they have to release at least...
