....for the deer season. I hit the gun club this morning to shoot two of the black powder rifles and the black powder pistol. The two rifles print 5 shots at 100 yards in about 7/8". The pistol is right at an inch at 50 yards. So....I am ready for the time in the woods.
More importantly, having this task out of the way allows me unfettered time to fish. Got a funeral Monday morning, then I'm free to fish until November 7th.
I have been busy making a number of baits, mostly the larger wax wigglers and 1.5" Thump-Its, and putting them in jars of Gulp juice. Call me nuts but the largest crappies of the last trip along with the largest of the sunfish on that trip all came off those 2 baits that had been soaking in the gulp juice since last fall. The baits did not fade or opaque nor did they lose any resiliency. Fished side by side with identical baits NOT stored in the juice, those in the bath took the honors on size and numbers. SO....I'm stocking up on gulp juice enhanced plastics and can say I'm dialed in in that regard too..
