Welcome to Field & Stream!
Good hunting and brutal weather go hand in hand, or rather glove in glove. W.L. Gore & Associates, the makers of waterproof/breathable hunting clothing, recently asked field testers, reps from hunting organizations, and members of the outdoor media to chose their best hunting/crappiest conditions destinations. They were to rate each on a scale of one to ten in several categories: quality and quantity of game, success rate, scenery, and hunter amenities. Being subjective, the results are debatable and that's where you come in. Add your opinions to the discussion and share hunting horror stories of your own in the comments section below.
Q: Has anybody figured out how to get steel shot to open up inside 20 yard? I'm shooting a Skeet tube in an 11/87 (actual constriction is.003 per my barrel mic) and am shooting heads off ducks or when I'm a little further back, blowing big holes in them. Never had a problem like this before. I've patterned Winchester Experts, Black Cloud, Blue box Federal, and Rio Blue Steel. At 20-25 yards they are plum tight. .003 ain't much choke and I have used this tube for years. It is clean with no plastic or carbon build up. Only thing I can figure is that wads have changed causing tighter patterns, but in all manufacturers? Go figure,,,
