Rick RST makes a 1 1/4 oz 1200 fps load that I think is comfortable to shoot. if we ever get to Elk Creek at the same time remind me and I will bring you a handful to sample.

Our old reliable Parkers got quite a workout this spring. With little guiding due to border closure there was much more time to hunt. Cooperative toms made for many thrilling hunts across several New England states. We finished in Maine, Last Man Standing Day being June 6. While we didnít lay eyes on a moose, four black bear, numerous fox, coyote and whitetails were spotted. Bobcat and drumming grouse were evident also. There is some excellent early antler growth on the bucks and weíve encountered ten hen turkeys with poults. Conditions are perfect for an outstanding hatch of ground nesting birds. Save for a few early season warning shots, marksmanship was excellent. Maybe we just needed to warm the barrels up a bit. Like Mills stated, itís on to fishing now. Fall turkey starts in Maine in mid September. Hope to take the last week of September off for our four consecutive moose hunt, drawing Saturday June 13.

Those were obviously some very memorably hunts Jim.

Those early season shots are just for blowing the cobwebs out of the tubes anyway!

Excellent! I hope your hatch is indeed a good one.
