There is hog hunting. Hogs have been declared a nusience and no need for a license to hunt them.

Florida is that way, they belong to the landowner and you are only required to have a license on state property. Only other thing in the state not regulated is frog gigging.

Frog gigging here, you have to have both hunting and fishing license.

Yea, Oklahoma is pretty greedy too. We are just about run over with deer, more get run over on the roads than get harvested, yet you have to have hunting license and doe tags. They should let people harvest them for free and it would help insurance rates go down and help the over population.

Probably so, Kansas had a disease in their deer a few years back called chronic wasting disease. It seems like it would be more logical to control the population by hunting instead of that.

Yes here in wash. You can hunt hogs, but game and fish want you to report where and when male or female and how big. Think they are just trying to figure out how to make money on hunting them.

I haven't hunted quail in over 10 years because their numbers have been so low, we have been trying to leave some. The last three years my boss has not sprayed his pasture for weeds and we a bumper crop of rag and broom weeds. Good news is we have been seeing about 10 to a cuvy and my 16 year old daughter will get to go on her first quail hunt this year.

Game birds often need farmers to help when numbers dwindle down. the state is of little use in regards to helping with numbers. I brought back our pheasant & quail population by raiseing 100 to 300 a year for 6 years then with peasants I would take 12 to 20 and place them in diferant parts of the township were I thought they may do well.
You can't do this with quail them you must let go were they were raised.
And you must do it all unselfishly as no one will pay you. I spent as much as a $1000.00 a year for birds & feed + equipment another $2500.00
Very few people will do this but with modern farming as it is this is what it takes if you want the birds in your county or parish.

Why? We have bought quail from other parts of Oklahoma and turned them loose and seems like most of them turned up dead by drowning in stock tanks, getting run over and going to peoples houses that had cats. We never done it again.

Likely I do not know all the answer to this but they develop a little computer chip from hatching to the 1st days of life that takes them through life and moving them messes up that chip. You can release quail at 5 to 6 week and they will always return home, move them & they just disappear. Quail do travel some maybe as much as 40 miles from home but they do also return.
If you buy quail hatched you want to take them home the day they hatched 3 days is getting late

Makes sense. That's probably what happened to ours, they were trying to go home. Maybe we will try raising them, I know where to buy eggs just before the hatch

You just blew my idea of trapping them along roadways in the fence rows and releasing them in areas I am allowed to hunt. We did trap some in the thick swamps here and release them in the fields and immediately put the dogs out with great success. Had to convince my uncle that it was better that way than to enjoy them with no shot in them as he had always done before

Any ideas on hunting or trapping moles. I can wait outside for hours and sometimes shoot one, have trapped a few but not enough, don't want to use poison because of birds and dogs.

Hardware store has a great trap, 4 or 6 spikes that stick down in the ground when he boars through just step-flatten a spot in his trail and stick it ontop when he boars back through it springs down sticking him and they are free bleeders with no ability to clot done deal

Gave my Granddaughter a Ruger .327 mag for her 19th birthday.
She loves it & I think it was a great choice for her as I feel she will need to carry if her plans for work & school go forward as expected.

327 is a good caliber and I've never gone wrong with Ruger on anything. Kids must learn to shoot and not be afraid to shoot when they need it the most. I tell my daughter as long as you're alive we can work the rest of it out.

Speaking of Muzzel loaders, I just picked up a Remington 1816 flintlock. The re-production one. sence it's so pretty I will likely leave it inside un-used by me also haveing a new one being custom built for me right now it is going to be a copy of an 1854 German jager origanal that i have
looks much like a S Hawkin only made in germany with that county flavor.
Was found on a western Nebraska Ranch as one of the ranch guns from the 1880's 70 years ago. I am the 3rd owner sence the 1880's but I can make a educated guss it was shiped to ST lewis in 1854 by it's markings it is a full .50 cal. I asked that my new one be in .54 cal. also both are percuson.

In Oklahoma you can now use modern muzzle loaders for primitive firearm season. I have a 50 cal. break open inline muzzle loader, that uses shotgun primers, with a 3x9 scope, that can shoot 30-50 cal rifle bullets, someone bought me as a gift. I have shot it at targets and it shoots as good as some 30-06's. I still us my old hawkens open sights.

The sights on that gun have never ben moved or messed with in over 100 years
shoots like it did in 1854 I'm sure

Done that also in the past and was a good time spent around my outdoors turkey cooker.
The cooker is a converted old warsher shell put over a dug pit fire and old wipeper motor then runs the rotisery from a car battery and cooks a big turkey in two plus hours.
some of the best turkey i have ever had was in that cooker

Used a 357 magnum for the first time this morning. Most of my side arm experience comes from a Browning 9mm and a Glock 17.

But they had a special for renting a 357 on at the range, so thought to my self, why not?

Quite different from the Glock. The increased travel length for the trigger, really caught me by surprise. And I found I "jerked" too much, unless I monitored and watched the hammer come back. Found I was getting crossed eye though, and cheated, ended up closing one eye.


Any one have any tips for me?

Not sure if I will buy one, going to rent one again next week when I go. But it was fun and am thinking, maybe.

I practiced dry firing revolvers and as soon as it fires look down the sights to be sure you're still on target after thousands of times it does become almost second nature. When hunting with a revolver I use it in single action. I watched a video on a shooting contest for revolvers and they are shooting faster than semiautomatics.

Thanks, found some you tube vids last night that is helping. I think I got crossed up because I am right handed, but my left eye is slightly stronger than the right, So with out knowing it really, am slightly dominate in it . Never noticed with the Glock or Browning as I was compensating with out really realizing it. But the added awareness of watching the hammer as well coming back, threw me off.

That is what I think right now, will see how it goes when I go back to the range tomorrow ,

Going to practice some more, and rent it a few more times before buying one.

I'm a singel acton guy but I don't think I ever pay any thought to the hammer at all on dubble action but just wear the trigger breaks.
my grandauter & I will be shooting her Rugar 101 .327 shortly and I will check on myself as i likely do see the hammer just never in thought.

I gathed up some .32 S&W longs for this shoot, thinking pratice will be more enjoyable than shooting a lot of .327's but we will still wear ear protection

Yea, I had some friends tell me that as well.

I started to watch the hammer coming back though because I ended up jerking a bit just before I got the trigger all the way back. Used to the shorter trigger travel on my 17 and Braowning, is what I think.

Heading to the range tomorrow, and will practice some more.

Thank you, Sir!
