Went out this morning, had to break ice to get to the spot we wanted to set up. Not much flying early but some big flocks later. I got a Green-wing Teal and a hen Bufflehead. A whole lot Redheads, Ringbills, a few Bluebills and a few Canvas Backs were flying around just not coming close enough. Tomorrow morning we are pulling out all the dekes and heading to the deeper water. I sure hope this works because it sure would be fun shooting some divers.

It was a bit chilly this morning, I had to break ice for almost the entire mile and a quarter to our spot. We set out 8 dozen decoys, and it was worth while. We hard most of the big flocks came over to give us a look see. But most of the time lost out to the 500 coots and duck that were sitting on the other side of the lake. I brought down three and the others had 7 between them. I did learn that you can call diver ducks. it sounds goofy but actually worked good.

That might have been my last hunt for the season. I am headed out to Washington state tomorrow morning. Saturday starts the firearms deer season and I wont be home until Monday. If there is open water yet I might steal a day and chase ducks.

Well I think it's over for the year. It was almost 60* yesterday when I had commitments that didn't allow me to chase birds, now it is less then 20* with 30mph wind and oh don't forget the snooow! The season ends Sunday and it doesn't look like the weather is going to break before then.

12 more sleeps
bought a case of steel #3s today all 2 3/4"
half are 1 1/8th oz the other half 1 1/16th oz both doing around 1550 fps
by getting 2 3/4 " we can use them in my old single barrel as well as the pump so if the lighter of the 2 loads doesnt recoil too bad the young fella can try the 12ga as well as his .410 which we made up some more loads for today #4 and some #6-7s in 3"at 3/4 oz
that should get us through most of the season and then some. we also picked up a box of 1/2 oz #9s in case we get out after quail that should give him a better chance of hitting the wee buzz balls. Very Happy

Elvis, do I understand you are going to use #3 steel in a single shot? Most single shots are full choke and I cannot recommend to use heavy steelshot in a narrow choke.
There is a reason that most screw-in narrower chokes specially approved for steel shot, only have decreased diameter outside the barrel.

On the other hand I do use target rounds of #7 1/2 steel on doves with an Auto-5 (magazin limited till 2 rounds) and it works well on even larger than expected distances.

Question: isn't there a warning on each box of steel cartridges not to use the heavy shot in a full choke?

Very Happy my baikal has been extensively Elvisafied. Choke sawn off and heated n beated just enough to give small degree back. Then ported with drill. She dont look too flash but man does she kill well.

A Baikal, that explains a lot. But you will kill him eventually. I have a friend who has 6 or 7 Baikal doubles, but he still likes his first one with 1 trigger the best (mayby because he's a lefty using a righty rifle Smile )
His first barrel is cylindric, the second somewhat more open (? due to the many shotloads that passed?). Last year we were told it was a complete loss, but a good gunsmith welded most of the part together again and it's still killing doves and crows at distances many would not believe that it's possible with steel shot...
