    Pretty cool, Mike. Is that your company? We have shovel-bill sturgeon on the Tennessee River; they call them shovel-bill catfish but are actually a member of the sturgeon family. They snag them in the tail-race below dams for the roe.
    I finally got to shoot that .45-120; couldn't hit the side of a barn with it but it was still a lot of fun. I think there was too much deviation in the loads for any consistency. I'm going to load a batch when I get back with some of that new powder and see if I can get a little better grouping. I got a bunch of pretty consistent 200 gr. bullets that I just cast from some tire weights. They all weigh in pretty close.

    Looks like that one escaped the smoker. I'm guessing Idaho has close to the same fishing regs as us, is there reason for letting it go.

    I am a big advocate of the Catch, fillet, and release program.
