    Nope. Mossberg patriot. My 30 06 is a 700 walnut. I was looking for a beater.

    Santa came early.

    There are some techniques he could try to prevent this.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Serious question, Mike: You shoot deer from a boat? I mean, if that's your thing it's all good but I don't understand.

    Hopefully not while moving......most states have laws against that.

    No, I don't hunt from a boat. I plan next year to use a boat to access some remote public lands so It'll be bouncing around in a boat. My wood guns are too precious to me to treat them badly. This was a relatively inexpensive rifle and it's cerakote so I don't have to be too worried about cleaning it right after a wet day. I'll be going to the range sat and will have more opinion on it.

    I see. Thanks for the clarification.

    He also needs a "boat gun" in case the motor breaks.

    Spare paddle. Just unload it first.

    I understand completely. My goose pit gun has a "plastic" stock on it. It looked like s h i t when new, so takes a beatin' and keeps on looking like s h i t. Perfect for the pit and cast and blasts.
