Re: Understanding Cold Barrel Shots

You guys need to get out more!!! Google SPUR WING GOOSE, and you will see what I'm talking about! It is not an ostrich! Ostrich are large!! A spurwing is a goose. We hunt them to hone our skills. If you can hit a goose at 800yards, then a Kudu shoulder will be a breeze. I know, I know, shame, poor goose! But hey they are a pest here, so my wheat neighbors are happy for us to take them out!

EAT THEM! The good old BOERE GEREG (Farmer recipe) is to shoot the Spurwing goose, clean, skin and hang for seven days in a cold room. Then put it in a casserole dish, add 1/2 a cup water, three full onions chopped, ten medium carrots, largely chopped. Then add one cup of red wine, garlic, coarse salt, pepper, rosemary, and a hint of curry powder. Then you put in a 3 x 2 x 3" piece of Kiaat Wood.
Put it in the oven at 170 deg cent, and cook it for 4.25 Hours.
Remove from the oven and then chuck out the goose and eat the WOOD!!!!

No we knew what you were doing but here in the states shooting geese with a rifle would get us in trouble with the game wardens. We get to shoot rocks for practice. Your cooking instructions sound like we do carp fish.

A lot of those bore snakes are sol. I used one once, and only once. Gave me the heebeejeebees.

I have nightmares of egg shaped crowns.
I agree I quit using bore snakes also. Pulling a dirty brush and solvent soaked rag thru the gun several times spells trouble. also if you ever try pulling a 30 cal snake thru a 7mm you will never do it again. If you can get it out you will be lucky.
