Sounds like we need to split a hunt togetherjer901 said:Sunday - chased and shot some quail, toured RedStick properties north end, drank some beer and a little Woodford Reserve
Monday - chased and shot some more quail, toured more of RedStick properties, ate a fine knock-off of a Turducken - a piglet stuffed with venison backstrap and bacon and piglet backstrap. Oh yeah, drank some more beer and Woodford Reserve and Knob Creek

. I was really about to go with a.new Tacoma but please message me the price on the diesel Colorado. I would love a small diesel 4x4double20 said:I sold my 2005 Colorado yesterday and I signed the loan papers for my new diesel Colorado this morning. I ended up having my dealer get one from another dealer out of state vs ordering one from the factory. It is the same configuration as my 2005 being a crew cab short box. It is black which was not my first choice in colors but it will do. The more I look at the pictures of black ones the more I like it. I went with the 2 wheel drive again. Couldn't stomach the higher payment for 4x4 when I would use it so infrequently. Don't need it where I do most of my hunting at my father-inlaw's place. The dealer is coordinating with a car hauler to go pick it up. Said it would be 7-10 days at the most.
I have 2 long camping trips scheduled for Memorial Day weekend and 4th of July weekend. The first one is about 120 miles each way and the second one is about 700 miles each way. We'll see how it does towing my Coleman travel trailer that weighs about 3500 pounds loaded (2875 is the dry weight). I'm hoping for 18 mpg or better while towing which will be a lot better than the 10 mpg we get using my wife's Yukon. I'll report back on how it does. Ironically, we got Trailer Life magazine in the mail yesterday and the front cover had a diesel Colorado with a 23' Lance camper behind it. I thought "That will be me soon!"
If you ever want to shoot in Valdosta lemme knowjer901 said:I absolutely suck at sporting clays. Fun, I mostly shoot with my brother-in-law when I go up north, so 3-4 times a year at most. I agree with RM - many SC courses are set up for the Herb Parsons and Tom Knapps of the world. In the field I have good days and not so good days (there are no bad days in the field). But one thing is for sure - I seldom suck as bad in the field as I do shooting "teals", "fading midis", "speeding minis" and whatever else the trap setter tosses out there.Riflemeister said:There are valid reasons you don't see me posting my clay shooting scores on here. Most sporting clays courses have degenerated from replicating bird shooting to "gotcha" presentations where the terrain, trees and anything else is used to confuse the shooter into shooting where it isn't. Sounds to me like you came in a close second with a bunch of experienced bird hunters. Not too bad.jac63 said:Shot my first round of SC for the year after work. As a 3-4 times a year shooter I usually shoot in the low to mid 60's and that's exactly where I was today, 60. I look at some of the scores that others sometimes post and I have to wonder if I'm really that bad of a shooter? Or is it just a tough course that I shoot? 8 of us today and the high score was a 61, my 60 and 3 guys in the low 50's and a couple 40's. I know none of us are world class shooters but I don't think we are a complete waste either. Granted shooting a limited number of times a year doesn't help but you'd think someone would get lucky once in a while and post a score in the 80's. Oh well we have fun regardless.
Great customer service! It is as simple as moving a sensor to get it to do rightYornoc3 said:That looks like fun, but a lot of shells disappear in a hurry.
I've had really good luck with Do-all's customer service on a problem with one of their clay throwers. Try to call them, if you can; just like CZ, a real person responds better than E-Mail.
Still not out of the woods. Going to try one more adjustment and then I'm sending it back for the new one (ordered mine two weeks ago) that has a welded bracket instead of a riveted oneYornoc3 said:Dang, 67galaxie, I should've thought of that! I've tweaked mine a bit, too. I expected it to be something a little more complicated. Still, they're helpful folks at Do-all, and, if you ever need parts, you'll get'em quick.
