How 'bout somebody post some good COOT recipes. I always take a few each year and usually butterfly the breast and fry like a piece of fish in Zatarains seasoned fish fry...can't tell it from a duck.
What's the outlook for tomorrow? Any new birds being reported with this last front?
Just curious if I'm the only one to notice a sharp decline in the number of Wigeon this year. We normally hunt out of Venice and manage to bag a few per hunt. This year I saw 1 all season. Where are the wigeon?
My son is 10 years old and 75 lbs. Based on your experience, can anyone recommend a suitable shotgun for that age and weight? Mossberg has 20 ga. Bantam and Mini Bantam models. The Mini Bantam looks like a good fit and the stock extends as he gets bigger, but only comes with an 18 inch barrel. The Bantam extends as well and has longer barrel, but of course, is heavier.
Just wondering if any of you have kids around the same age/weight that might be able to recommend a model that won't be too much to handle or kick too much. Thanks.
My son is 10 and weighs about 75 lbs.
Any suggestions on the appropriate shotgun based on his age and weight. I've looked at the Mossberg Mini and Bantam 20 qa. The mini is nice and has 3 stock extentions as he grows but the barrel cannot be changed. It is 18 inches. The bantam has the same extensions but obviously a bit larger.
Can anyone provide info based on their experiences with their kids?
