With a name like the “Snipe Lodge” I thought you might be based in Ireland until I saw your reference to Cottonmouths and gators.

I know St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, but I am not sure if that still holds good given the apparent willingness of snake enthusiasts to abandon Burmese Pythons and the like in the wild if they become inconvenient. I see that one ate a gator recently in Florida.

Mid November Chukar hunt.

Classic Chukar country:

It’s very hard to capture the sheer magnitude of the country and the size of the features in a photo. Photos just don’t do it justice. To try and put things into perspective…..most of the rock features on this mountain face are easily 4 to 6 stories tall.

Sometimes you come over a ridge and a local resident might be staring you down….

November western mountain duck hunting. Can’t beat the scenery. I still miss hunting Nebraska marshes & rivers though. I’ll always have a soft spot for the Midwest central flyway.
Unbelievably, these pics were shot within an hour of one another….the morning rain, snow & sleet was nowhere in the forecast, but it sure got the ducks moving. A mix bag of Gaddys, Widgeon and some divers (ring necks).
No gun pic here, I didn’t want anyone to puke in their mouths. Nobody needs or wants to see a clapped out Winny Super X2 that looks like it hitched a ride on the outside of a submarine. 😂

Dustin, your pics are always top drawer, and much appreciated. Just breathtaking.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

Apologies. Its a drilling, The top lever acts as a selector for the rifle barrel firing pin and raises the rear sight. This hunt was a dryhole but on my last trip down I shot a medium doe. Geoegia has small deer generally.

I'm going to try and capture a good nunber of the fish from both ponds while I can. My inlaws have a small farm pond that I would love to transplant with these redeared sunfish.

A few pics from this week's hunting so far. Today was good. Shot my limit of three on 3 shells. Ammo conservation in these trying times is appreciated.

From Monday, just one bird with the little Cashmore Paragon.

A better picture

From today. That's a "new" Rigby that my hunting partner picked up last weekend in Tulsa. Nice gun, but the stock is a mile long (15.5") and short in the drop.
The little Cashmore did the heavy lifting and accounted for 3 of the 4.

Shooting the birds this morning might have been easier than getting all of them to sit on the fence rail in a twenty-five mph wind long enough for me to get a picture.

Waterfowl season ended abruptly across most of the state last weekend with a big snowstorm followed by below zero temperatures. Some places got 20".
