Hi all, well it's that glorious time of year again.......Bird Hunting season! Seeing how Doves have opened and for us here, Sharptail and Huns will open next weekend. Thought it was time to start this thread again.

I have not been able to get out yet for Doves (will this evening), but my son Will went out once and limited (no pics however). Hope to have some pics later today.

Anyway, lets see your pictures of your guns, dogs, hunt and of course birds.

Best of luck to all of you and remember to be safe. As the saying goes "All the pheasants ever bred is not worth one man dead"

Good Luck!!!!

Greg

This time of the year when chasing mountain grouse a fly rod or two is a good idea. 16 GA # 2 AyA an a 28 GA Parker Repro 2 bl. set. Fly rods are built on Sage blanks and have local Juniper handles. No they are not slippery, primarily due to the full wells grips.

AmarilloMike is in Montana hunting Huns and Sharptails. Yesterday he shot several sharpies and his French Brittany, Buddy, pointed and retrieved this one. I couldn't go with him, being stuck in New Mexico having to do hand to hand combat with the trout.

Lloyd, you are correct sir . That is an Ideal 16 gauge. Can't remember for sure but I think that Ideal of Mike's is a grade 3. Somewhere on this board there are pics of a second set of barrels Wingshooter got for that gun and had PA24 blacken. Gorgeous gun and in the perfect gauge.

My dove season opener was a bust a week and a half ago the sunflowers we planted were looking great but deer came in and ate everything down.I have never seen like it before.10 acres of sunflowers sorgum and even some millet. It was pretty hot and the dog got in some water work and got to put up a couple of quail though.

As James said, only that it is a grade 4, 3 palm, model 314. Love it, and the retractable sling got some jealous looks when everyone was juggling birds, stool/chair, shells, Mojos, water bottle, etc. etc.

Thank you both. Neat guns, from some of the photography I've seen. Never have personally gotten close to a nice one yet. All I've ever seen are low-grade, beat-to-death versions.

Well I think we should find a way to chase some birds together and let you try her out. Here is a pic of my No. 5, 16 ga. which I hope to have in my possession shortly:
