If dove hunters didn't bring all the money it does to these small agricultural areas, everything would be posted no trespassing and no hunting. I make it a point to pick up my spent shells and trash. Spent shells tear up farm equipment.

    Here we go again . . . They work very well, but as anything, they're a personal choice. I own several acid wrapped rods along with the same rod wrapped conventionally. The difference is less wobble when you wind in on a big fish. Personal experience - I caught 4 from #217 to #254 along...

    More likely an improvised morter. Usually a short piece of pipe or mayme a sectionof an old rocker launcher. The tube was never ment to hold up to the pressure of a morther round. Usually a fire onnce and throw away type weapon.

    Youth .20ga.
