Tomorrow ends our season over here , I've booked off work as have four hunting partners , just saw weather forecast and snow is forecast for the early hours , really looking forward to getting out on the last day . This has been a good season and it's been great following the adventures of the members on here , surely the best forum on the net. I will let you all know how we get on tomorrow but until then all the best WJ.

Wonderful
Good luck, and shoot well.

I just bought a nice 20 Gauge Browning Superposed and tried
it out today at the skeet range, what fun and a great shooter

Well the snow came back for the last day of the season but we didn't let that stop us having a wee walkabout in the woods , the birds didn't really co-operate but we managed to bag a few ,none fell to my gun I only fired two shots early on and my hands were that cold at that point I missed, well that's my excuse anyway . Though there wasn't a lot of action it was great to be out on the last day ,we have had a really enjoyable season which featured more days out in the snow than I can remember and it makes a change from last year where it seemed like it was raining ever Saturday , I hope you all have had a good season where ever you are. All the best WJ.

thanks for posting text and photos.

dumb question, but...

What are the birds? Do they hold for a point? Do they taste good?

I'm already excited for next fall. My dog should be ready by that time. He'll be ~21 months - Hopefully not yet into the terrible 2's Rolling Eyes

WJ, thanks for the ride. Looks like birdy cover! Did you have any dogs along?

Mike, you did well on that Superposed!

Guys thanks for the response , Manofthewoods the birds are Pheasant the one in the foreground is I think called a Melanistic Pheasant , we saw only about four or five of them about our shoot and refrained from shooting them all season but this one didn't make it I'm afraid , we had a 50 fine on them at the start of the season but it was never charged but anyone who shot one was always in for a bit of stick. They hold to point but no pointing dogs with us at the minute though I was brought up shooting over my fathers German short haired pointers , and the birds sure do taste good ,
Dave we had four dogs with us on Wednesday two Cocker spaniels a springer spaniel and a Springador which is a cross between a springer spaniel and a Labrador .
Thanks again WJ.
