Was able to make one more bird hunt before the end of the season last week, on the 28th. I hunted with my old 16GA M12 equipped with a Polychoke, my partners used 20GA shotguns. OH

Here's the latest addition



Had her about 3 weeks now and she seems pretty smart. I think she is mirroring my old mutt retriever, which appears to have helped speed up things like house training.

Seems to want to retrieve, isn't scared of power tools. Going to get the cap gun out when it stops blizzarding here and see how she does.

Savage, it was actually kind of strange. The breeder had a couple of litters at the same time, with probably 3/4 of all the pups being yellow. All of the yellows were sold immediately (fortunately I had first pick and of course picked out a black one), but the remaining black pups were harder to move I was told.

No idea why - all the pups looked good and healthy to me. Is there a preference in the non-hunter world for yellows?

We had a pitiful waterfowl season, a couple woodies and mostly mergansers. Managed (2) woodcock after the ducks, and the local preserve is what made some semblance of a hunting season...:

After the hunt-


A nice point-



Dog tired (on the drive home)-


Our first woodcock-



Probably this season's final preserve hunt... took me over 5-minutes with a GPS to work through the cane to the edge of the pasture to find her point-

Big weekend for the draht pup. Progressed from primer shells to full gun. She got to mark two birds and 'retrieve' them. Had a good natural point on the fist bird and held most of minute while we caught up with her to flush the bird. Pretty good for four months... Was a happy pup!

Also swam for the first time today.

Gentlemen,
Here on the northern tier of Pa we had a great Grouse and Woodcock Season. I use my 16's here until later in the season, when I go to the 28.

Pine Creek/Dave


Two nice 16's for Grouse hunting, Parker DHE Repro on top, Original L.C. Smith Special Order Silver Breech below. Great Bird Guns both.

Gil and others sorry I never got back to the little English Hammer gun .

It's a Wm Summer of Liverpool , I have seen very few other guns by this maker , maybe 2 others . I have only been about find out very little about it , I do know that from the street address on the barrel it was made about 1875 . It is a very finely made piece with a lot of very fine scroll engraving. I bought it from a good friend of mine 4 or 5 years ago , who got it from a friend of his , who got from his Uncle. So we know that it's been in the US since the 30s or early 40s . He had it completely restored 15 or so years before I bought it from him . It is and all original gun except for the finishes , all original wood that was never cracked or split and metal with matching numbers , The only thing that was replace was one of the hammers screws . Really it is one of the nicest shotguns I own, IIRCC it weighs 5 lbs 11oz . Its a joy to shoot and I really enjoy hunting with it .

fn16,

Hay you can't just leave us hanging like that when you talk about a fine Wm Summer 16 double gun. You have to put up some pictures of this fine gun for us all to see!
