Can anyone tell me the pro's-cons of a 35 Whelen vs a 45-70 on an Encore-they are legal in MS during muzzle loader season, and was wondering which is better all around. Distance, knock down, accuracy, bullet drop, etc. Any experience is welcome.
No experience with an Encore, 35 Whelen or 45-70, but I can vouch for the Knight KP1 in 444. Half inch group at 100 yards. Deadly on deer. Guess that didn't help much did it.

Should I give them another year or take them out?

These are just 1 1/2 year old bucks, give them more nutrition from january to september next year via summer plots and supplemental feed and they will put on some bone. Good looking young bucks.

Can someone tell me the pros and cons of a 26 inch barrel and a 28 inch barrel. Thinking of getting a new shotgun and cant decide which length barrel to get. thanks craig
Well I really dont think it matters, it might help if you are have a kid and need a shorter barrel. What really matters is the choke and not the barrel length.

So many opinions out there, but I need to hear from folks with experience on Honda and Polaris.

PLEASE ADVISE on the good and bad of both brands.

Made a turkey hunt last week to Caldwell county Texas which is near San Antonio. I normally make this trip for the opener, which is April 1st, but work had me bowed up and had to push this trip back to this past weekend. Turkeys were not very active and never heard a gobbler on the roost. Riding…

Turkey season so far has been fun, I have worked several gobblers and called in several hens over the first week of the season. On Sunday 4/11 I was able to close the deal on a nice gobbler. At daybreak I waited for the birds to wake up and start singing. I did not hear a gobbler, so I eased down…

If you are wondering about e-bikes for hunting, here are a few thoughts to consider.

Only 5 weeks away and getting ready for what I hope to be a very good turkey season. The winter storm last week destroyed a lot of my woods. The ice storm dropped trees down all over the place and we are spending time just clearing roads and making sure everything is ok. I hope the wildlife came…

Just looking for advice from someone. Me and a couple friends will be turkey hunting for the first time this season. I was just curious if anyone had suggestions on WMAs to hunt at for turkey. We've been hunting at sherburne for deer/hog, but doubtful on the turkey population there from what…

Bayoubow, Clear Creek WMA has a good turkey population and I have had a lot of fun on that place. It does get hunted hard but you can find gobblers all over that area. We have camped out and enjoyed our hunting there in past years. Walk the logging roads looking for sign and listening. Good luck!

Good luck!! Keep us posted on how it goes. I'm interested to hear if things are any better over there. You're right, it used to be full of turkeys but has been awful the past few years.
