What is it?

Got these pics on my game camera. Who wants to say what the circled animal is? It doesn't look like a raccoon to me. Not a possum or rabbit. So what is it?…Continue

Love the looks of that Road Agent coach gun Jan, just the thing for "Cowboy Action Skeet" competitions, which requires a period-correct weapon to compete with. That is something I have thought about trying one of these days. Can't you just see me in full mountain man buckskins with that side by side?

I didn't see a thread for "what's your newest firearm purchase", so thought I'd post here. Despite living in Kalifornia, I finally decided on a home defense/survival/hunting weapon to augment the little single shot .22 I have in the corner. That little plinker is all I have left after losing all my other weapons in a burglary years ago. Though I don't hunt anymore, it felt weird not having a "real" weapon on hand, so decided to scratch that itch before the state bans firearms altogether, (which is eventually what they will try to do I suspect). I considered a few different options, but finally decided this would be a good all purpose gun to have around; just ordered it online, should ship by mid week. Mossberg Maverick 88 12ga, 24" barrel, (smooth bore but with rifle sights). After weighing all the options, including cost of ammo, I decided this covered all the bases. Best bang for my buck so to speak, USA-made, affordable, parts available, and more importantly, legal in CA, (at least for now). It comes with adjustable choke, and despite the shortish barrel would suffice for wing shooting in a pinch, & with rifle sights could serve as a slug gun too. Couldn't find a decent photo, so will post one after it arrives, (which of course will happen after the intrusive 10 day long background check process I will have to endure after it arrives). It is being shipped to the local FFL dealer. I also have begun stockpiling ammo prior to the 2018 requirement to purchase a license just to buy ammo in this state. I figure I better stock up now while I can.

Maybe this will distract me for a while and prevent me from spending too much money on knives? (Yeah sure, like that's gonna happen).

Nice Jan thanks for the update on these two exciting weapons.

American Tactical Shotguns
After a two-year wait, American Tactical says its AR-pattern semi-automatic Omni MAXX .410 shotgun is finally ready to ship. The shotgun uses a gas-operated, short-stroke, balance piston system designed to fire a variety of 2.5" .410 shotgun shells including birdshot, buckshot and mixed payload options. The 18.5" smooth-bore barrel is threaded to accept Remington-style removable chokes. Built around a set of the company's Omni Hybrid aluminum reinforced polymer AR-15 receivers, the lower receiver assembly is fully compatible with AR uppers chambered in other calibers such as 5.56 NATO and .300 BLK. These shotguns ship with one removable 5-round magazine, while 15-round magazines will be sold separately. MSRP: $649.95

With SHOT SHOW happening this week, I have been on the hunt for who is pre releasing info

the new Road Agent side-by-side 12-gauge coach gun. With its 18.5" fixed-choke barrel, Turkish walnut stock, exposed hammers and double triggers, this shotgun looks like other replicas intended for cowboy action shooting events. What sets it apart from the crowd are the unusual changes to the controls. When the break-action is closed, it automatically cocks the external hammers. A left-side, 3-position lever can be set to the Safe position when the hammers are cocked and used as a decocker to safely drop the hammers for reloading or emptying the shotgun. It’s a fast system that's easy to use. MSRP: $499

Jan, thanks for posting the new CA gun restrictions. Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous? It's actually worse than that, there is also a provision in prop 63 that will even require registering antique and obsolete guns, so folks who have old family weapons that were handed down will be felons if they don't register those old guns.

Of course I flipped off Sacramento in my own way by ordering a gun today at a local shop. The only problem is that ammo is skyrocketing in price due to "supply and demand". I was quoted a price of $11 for a 50rd box of .22lr's today, so even if we do stock up before the licensing law we will have to pay a premium to do so. Whatever it costs, I fully intend to have 499 rounds of ammo in hand by New Years Day 2018.

I'm telling you, If I didn't have a kid and grandkid here I would be moving to GA, AL, TN, or even Oregon, (or Texas, Arizona, etc, etc). Can't believe how the state where I grew up hunting and fishing in is turning into a second amendment nightmare. The only good news is that one shop owner told me today that several trade organizations are filing suit about the ammo license law, as it goes against federal interstate commerce laws, so at least there is some hope.

When I get my new toy I'll post a pic.

Still jealous of your land and all the photos from your 'cams :-)

I;m thinking of going back for the last week of rifle season, which allows me either sex from Jan 2-7. My wife keeps telling me I need to go back to get more meat for the freezer. Last year with the three I brought home she hardly bought any meat all year. And my cholestorol which was reasonably good anyway, improved quite a bit just eating nice healthy, lean venison.

After Thanksgiving my wife bought a huge turkey and sausage casings, we made maybe close to 20lb of sausage and started eating some on Monday night. It was good, though a little dry. We added bacon (you can never go wrong with bacon!) for flavor and a little fat for moistness but they could have used a bit more. The recipe said throw all the skin in the grinder too (for the fat) but we threw that out in favor of bacon.

Allan, we have a total of 20 doe days in the regular gun season this season.  We have already had nine of them.  The remaining 11 doe days start Dec. 23rd.  Also with us does are legal for the entire bow season which runs from Oct. 15 to Feb. 10.

Comment by allanm on December 12, 2016 at 18:59

I'm jealous Charles. :-) I don't have access to as much deer as you, or such nice productive land. I only got one during bow season, planning to go back the first week of January though, for the end of modern rifle season.

We only got two "does" (aka either sex) days this season, and then the first week of January. Bow and muzzle loader are always either sex state wide (Virginia), then rifle season had 3 doe days, and only bucks the rest of the season. I think the previous year there were 4 doe days. Our DGIF (game and fisheries) change things around according to reported hunts in different counties.

I was looking through the pictures from my game camera. I found this picture of the same deer that the game camera took just a few minutes before I took the one in my previous comment. In this picture it is only about 25 yards from me but I never saw it until it got to the spot in the picture in my previous comment. There was some brush between me and it but not solid brush. Deer blend in so well with their surroundings that they can be hard to see. From its size it is obviously a this year's fawn even though it has lost its spots
