Hey all, my son Jim and I went out today for a few hours, the weather has been exceptionally nice (last year we had about 20" of snow). It was in the upper 40's, sunny and little wind. However.....the birds didn't want to cooperate. They were spooky today, wouldn't hold point (except one rooster and a bunch of hens), but there is always tomorrow.

Anyway, I got the only boy bird today. I used my 12b Harkom

Hey all, went out solo today, only had a couple hours to hunt. Did manage to get a rooster and a Hun, not a great day, but much better than sitting at home.

I used my 12b Purdey today

Opening day of woodcock season in Georgia. The birds aren’t in, but conditions for their arrival are optimum as our woods had a 4” rain over the last 72 hours softening the woods floor for ease of doodling for worms. One bird, one shot and it was Floyd’s No. 4 Deluxe AyA 28 ga. Both Abby and Willa, my Britt Com MuttPak, had it pinned down and I had to go into the thick damn near on my hands and knees to flush it for Floyd. I could see Willa with Abby backing but all I heard was it getting up and Floyd’s shot. Ya' know, a good friend will do that for you. Wink Top gun is my recently acquired from Ted Darne R10 20.

While in the woods I spotted a small lion’s mane mushroom and showed it to Floyd. On the way out, Floyd spotted this one from 75 yards out as we drove out the woods. It weighed 3 lbs. and was the size of a cantaloupe. These are excellent on the table. At least I didn't go home empty handed.

Hey I recognize that bird. Surprised Hope they give you as much enjoyment as they did me this fall.

Rick, I am looking forward as ever to the flights. Dave, so far the gun is the woodcock's best friend. I hope to change that soon. The gun is in better condition than Ted described. Gil
