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

Hey all, here's one from this last Saturday. Number 2 son and I went out, but Jim got the only one in the bag. I knocked one down, but alas he gave Raina the slip. Hate doing that. We saw quite a few birds, mostly hens (that's GOOD!). Raina had some great points (hens of course), but the rooster were wild. The day was just beautiful and the company fantastic!

Jim and Raina

Hey all, this weekend was pretty poor. My sons and I went out on Saturday and didn't fire a shot, saw some, but either hens or wild flushing roosters. Today was better, just Will and I went out and we each managed a bird a piece, still been tough hunting as of late. Weather has been great, a 180 from last year. The bright spot of the weekend is Number 1 son is home for Christmas Leave, hope to get in some more hunts with him.

Will and his bird with Raina. Will is using his "new" Bernadelli 3E

I used my 12b Allport this weekend. Hammerguns are FUN!

Had a good hunt in Arkansas. The pup is three now and has been a joy, loves any game if it involves feathers, but the duck game is in her wheelhouse. I really enjoyed shooting my little 16 , and the 30 inch tubes choked mod/full with number 5 bismuth did a number on them. The youngsters in the group couldn’t quite fathom not using a synthetic afromatic contraption shooting 3 1/2 inch max loads, but birds well-fooled by a thought-out spread and proper calling can sure get kilt with much less. Judging from the mallard engraved on the floor plate,the 16 was built for duckin’ back in 1937, and she’s seen a fair bit of it, I’m sure.

The only reason there aren't six depicted is because I didn't hold up my end. Floyd dropped them all with his Ithaca SKB 20. We found some birds. His Pop and Sadie at the helm. Will open up the SC season tomorrow if it doesn't pour rain this morning. The MuttPak will join us and lead the way. Gil
