Nice ! Didn't know there was a hollow ground DLC Manix 2 blade ... BTW, I still carry your screw conversion, except it has a Maxamet blade now.
Yep, I’ve breasted them out too, especially on those hotter days near the end of season. Best of luck to you buddy, they can be the most skittish or most stupid of bird, you just never know. But no matter what, it’s just great to get out there and sit down and just watch mama nature in action. Keep an eye out for Morels too while your at it. Good luck and have fun.Solid advice. You’re right about the smell too, nastiest critter I’ve ever dealt with. I do no gutting though. I take the breasts and that’s it. Some hunters will frown upon that, I know.
