Even though I may never be part of a glorious twelfth shooting party I do look forwards to this day. Kind of like the official beginning of another hunting season which always comes just before my opener. 20 days and counting down here.

Stepping up field work to get ready for Dove season. Mowing strips of wheat still as the sunflowers are still filling heads in in some sections of the field. Been wet here like a lot of places. Hope to o cut some sunflowers in ten days. Corn harvest is going to be late because of such a wet Spring. That should keep the birds concentrated with a late harvest. Full season beans might be ready before some of the corn. If we can just not get a cold snap in middle September our Dove and Wood Ducks should be here in good numbers until October.

It's like waiting for Christmas morning. Hard to keep my mind on the things a husband is expected to. frown

28 days, 1 hour, 4, minutes and 3 seconds

If you look closely you can see Salopian and Lagopus awaiting trains yesterday for going north:

Sadly the service depicted by this picture is a total disaster nowadays. Even worse British Snail have decreed that they will not carry firearms.

The NYT mentions the Glorious 12th which lead to a few sorta interesting, but very short links


This one if from 1922.

This one has a few more guns and some interesting socks.

This one is much longer, but more interesting of course.
The Glorious 12th plus other British excentricities

Brent, being an Iowan, you'd certainly be interested in a tradition started by a group in Des Moines. Called themselves the Huntmasters. On the glorious 12th, they'd drive rural gravel roads and celebrate by shooting bridge pigeons. No idea whether they're still active.

I managed to bag one opening day 2017 here in northern WI. Did not last year. But even though it's usually too warm, too leafy, and too many bugs, I always take the dogs for what is often nothing more than an armed walk.

Larry,
I generally wait until the following week when Woodcock season opens up, as I've gone out on opening day to experience the same issues. It seems when I go out the first day of grouse season I flush nothing but.....you guessed it, woodcock!

I spend my "Waiting for Dove Season" time shooting pigeons at a dairy farm. Great practice for doves!
Shot 60 yesterday. Concentrating on picking a single bird in a flock sharpens your ability to focus on a single target.
