Hello Snipe Hunter.
That is a beautifully composed photo of the snipe & swamp.
A joy to look at. I love your work.

It's a old style (tang safety) Ruger M77 in 7mm-08 and the scope is a Redfield Widefield 1.75x5. I really like her, accurate and has gotten deer for me every year.

Best!

Hi all, went out today and was it ever a nice day, low winds, 50's and partly sunny, almost a perfect day. Except......the birds didn't cooperate. Spooky for some reason, wouldn't hold point just mean spirited! Did manage a rooster and a hun, so it wasn't a complete wash. Raina did well, no complaints with the dog.

Anyway, I used my 12b Cogswell & Harrison Konor



Best!

Greg

The first time I go out each season I spend the first few minutes staring down at the ground in front of my feet. That's about how long it takes to forget about snakes. You know around here we see cottonmouths and gators year around but by the end of December I usually feel more comfortable taking my dog.

Greg, those are handy little rifles. I have one in .308.

Thank you very much. I imagine that habitat is a little different than where most bird hunters hunt.

Thanks. I'd really like to have a Mannlicher stocked rifle, but I'm much more comfortable with the three position safety on the Model 70.

I hope folks are not getting tired of my deer pics, but this seems to be a banner year down South. My third son, Trent with one he killed this morning at my farm:



As is obvious from the pictures, my kids are kicking my butt!...Geo
