WMA regulation says "Fine shot" - and the NJ Shotgun hunting guide says up to #4  for Turkey hunting.  

Pretty much anything goes besides buckshot - though why waste any good shot at the range unless you're practicing or patterning.

Has the state considered the effectiveness of 00 buck on turkey? If anything it’s a more humane way of harvesting.

Count me in. It's been years since I have been to the WMA. Is anyone going to the diner after for a 2 lb burger? Do we need sign in when we arrive? I am assuming that someone will have the hunting license.

Several of us will have hunting licenses. No sign-in required other than perhaps someone here keeping track of who attended. I would be up for a diner visit afterwards.

Just look for Old Glory, and a white Chevy Silverado extended cab.

ALSO...

With this many in attendance we will definitely be using two shooting pads.  I will be there by 0830 to set up.  I need a volunteer who is bringing a thrower to come early and grab that 2nd pad

I can come early but have no thrower.

how far is it from when you park to the pad? I have three cases of clays and can't carry all that in one trip, should I bring a wagon?

If you're close enough right by the pad.  If not it's not that far a walk - just put 'em by your car and ask someone to help carry 'em over.

There will be plenty of people there to help carry stuff. Everyone is always super helpful. You won’t have any issues finding those eager to carry stuff, move stuff, shoot stuff, and talk good-natured shit!

Count me in for it warmer weather one!

It's actually going to be pretty mild Sunday, in the low 50s, and cloudy too.  Call me crazy but I prefer clay shoot'n when the sky is overcast.  Having the clouds up there gives me a better sense of speed as I track the target.   

Yanno, you are only a few miles from 287.  I'll be literally driving right by you.  If you want to come, I'll be happy to give you a lift.  The only caveat is you'd be in for the full ride.  I'm the first in and last out.

That's extremely kind but I promised my wife I would watch the little one since she wanted to pick up an extra shift at the hospital.

2023 hasn't been brutal financially, so we are both picking up as many hours as possible. 

I'd bring the little one, but I don't think she'll be very good at 5 months lol. 

I'm definitely in on the next one! I'll even pick up some clays next time so I have em on hand.

What is a thrower? Is this event hand launch or machine launch?

Thanks.

Got ‘em!

Found who’s going to throw our clays guys!

Hope you shoulder is up to the task!

:rofl: 
 

ETA: Every time I have been to a NJGF Clay Shoot, there has been multiple electric throwers.

I appreciate the shout-out in the initial post, but I'm afraid I can't make it.  I shoot in a police revolver league on Sunday mornings, and it would be at least 1:30 before I could make it to the shoot.

Y'all have fun!

    • The UV-5RX3 Radiooddity tri-band is also very popular.  Frequency Range: 136-173.975MHz / 220-225MHz /  400-519.975MHz.   A good antenna is every bit as important as the radio itself.  To use a gun related analog, You can have $2,000.00 in gun  parts for a great rifle, but, if you cheaped out on the barrel, don't cry when you get 5 moa accuracy.  If you own a fabulous $300.00 radio and use a pos counterfeit $10.00 antenna, or the wrong antenna for the band you will be using, your radio may as well be a TRU Barbie walkie-talkie. Some other things to think about, like getting an extended battery.  The standard battery for a BeefWang is 1800mAh, the extended battery is double that, with 3600mAh.  The larger battery also makes the radio more handy, like, for adult sized hands. A back-up battery is essential for any "prepper" transceiver.

    • I agree with the other posters who say that “long range” and “hand held” are generally not found together.  Hand held radios are generally line-of-sight and their range will depend on terrain, height, antenna and power - but will go from say .5 mile to 5, 10 miles or more in the right circumstances.  Most are advertised at 5W, some go up to 10W.  But terrain, antenna and height will make a bigger difference than an extra 5W advertised power in my opinion.  The Baofeng UV-5r is a popular choice and is inexpensive. You can get two of them for $34 on Amazon at the time I am writing this. Some other, newer model radios have come on the market now that are a little more expensive but might be better because they receive more - like air bands and HF ham bands (with easy software changes), and are easier to program. I am thinking of the Quansheng UV-K5 (8) and the TidRadio TD H-3.  These are in the $30 range.    If you want to spend a little more, you can get a more recognized brand like a Yaesu FT-4XR ($80) ,a Yaesu FT-65 ($110), or an Alinco DJ-VX50 ($95).    All of the above require a Ham Radio license to operate legally, though. But if you’re serious about using radio, you should really consider getting this.  The license will cost $35 to register with the FCC (this is the amount you would have to pay for a GMRS license (good for your whole family), plus $15 for the test.  There are many many apps and YouTube videos to help you study for free.  About 10-20 hours of serious study will get most people a pass.     To learn more about this kind of radio communication a couple of YouTube channels I recommend are “Not a Rubicon” and “Ham Radio Crash Course” (he also has classes for the test).   There are many other really good ones - just search around.    If you’re not interested in getting a ham license, GMRS is probably your best bet. I know Baofeng and Quansheng, and I think TidRadio, have GMRS radios. You can change antennas on these and can go up to 50W on base and mobile units. You are supposed to get a license for GMRS and it is just a $35 fee - no test. And it’s good for your entire household.    Hope this helps.
