Closest I've come to a left & right. The first bird was already on the ground when the 2nd one flushed.

Used my 16ga Carl Goluch

Hi all, well today was our pheasant opener, it was a success, but took longer to limit than what I expected. The winds we had didn't help much at all, 18mph with gusts into the 20's. The temps hit the 70's, but the winds cooled things down. I was surprised that the birds we got and seen were all colored out. Did see a couple of young roosters not quite colored out. They were the exceptions. Dog worked well and our shooting was good overall (couple misses!).

Here's my son Will with his birds and a grouse. He was using his 12ga Fabarm Classis:



My birds, I also got two grouse. I was using my 12b Purdey:



Overall a very good day!

Best!

Greg

Hi all, went out today, but not for long, got rained out. Pretty wet by the time we got done. Not a good day as far as hunting goes, my son Will & I only got a bird a piece. Will see what tomorrow brings.

Will used his 16ga Sauer Royal and I used my 16ga Dickinson:



Best!

Greg

We picked up a limit of wild roosters on the Flathead Reservation in western MT this morning. Fresh snow on the peaks, a gentle breeze in the valley, and Kaiser my giant GSP got it done.
I used a Merkel M8 LH with steel safe chokes, #5 steel in the right tube, #2 in the left, IC/M chokes. Smoked 'em!

Hey gjw,

How do you prepare them Sharptails to make them edible?

Cook em for an hour on a plank, Vernal. Then throw the bird away and eat the plank.

Seriously, young birds aren't all that bad, but by the middle of September they are all too oxygenated to taste good for me.

RCC and I have argued about this for years and everybody knows he is wrong. Filet out the breast meat, marinate in a ziplock with Italian salad dressing for 1-3 hours. The put them on a HOT grill...I mean it's so hot it creaks...and then sear them for 30 seconds per side. Seriously, if I'm doing a large batch I'm turning the first ones over just as the last ones hit the grill.

Fabulous, with cheesy potatoes and a nice cabernet.

Hi all, Number 2 son (Jim) and I went out today for a couple hours. Didn't see a whole lot (odd, but one of those days) but what we saw we got. Today was Spanish gun day. Jim used his 12ga v. Sarasqueta Model 3EC and I used my 16ga Ugarteachea Model 1030. It was a great day with just myself and Jim, sure love these times with my boys.

Jim and his bird:



I got a rooster and 2 Huns:



And the one who made it all possible, Duchess:



Best!

Greg
