Birds haven’t begun big migration towards us, but we found a couple today in the rivercane. Last year bad weather sent birds south earlier. Floyd is about 20 steps away in the photo of rivercane. Guns are my “no name” Birmingham 2” 12, most likely made by Skimin & Wood and Floyd’s Ithaca SKB 100 20 ga. Hull is from my reloaded Cheddite paper hull with 7/8 oz of #8. My Willa photobombed the photo. Joining her today was my Abby and Floyd's Sadie and old man Pop. Pop is a stylish, sophisticated dog and is considered among his peers to be the Most Interesting Brittany in the World. His head is slightly swollen from a copperhead bite.

Very nice Gil. It's been years since I last flushed a woodcock.

Hey all, well today was a good one. Went out solos after Church with my trusty Raina. She did very well! The weather today was simply amazing! 50's, sunny and light winds.....a perfect day! I hope we don't have tp pay the piper too much for this fantastic weather we're having!

Anyway, limited out with my 16ga Arrieta 871



And......Raina!



Best,

Greg

Had a great time trying out my new circa 1880 Husky 36 16ga, with 2.5" ITX #4 roll crimped reloads:

This im/xf Husky 103A 12 just hammers ducks out to 40 yds with ITX reloads. I think I'm at about 8 ducks for 12 shots with it so far this year. I even managed a couple rounds of 24 with it at trap recently, shooting low gun, and I suck at trap normally, especially when I shoot high gun. I spent some time with it adjusting the poi in the off season, which appears to have paid off. It's dialed in.

Today was a good day. We went to a different area and had over 20 flushes including two quail coveys. Both flushed wild, but we found a couple of singles and scored on one. Limiting factor was sweetgum leaves haven't dropped and most of the flushes occurred among sweetgum saplings making it hard to find the bird when it got up and away. That will change soon. Temps didn't get above low 50s. I like the way the 2" 12 ga. handles and carries--5 lbs., 8 oz. with 28" barrels. The MuttPak--Abby, Willa and Sadie. Pop sat at home.

Sounds like a great day Gil. That 2" 12 sounds like the perfect gun for that kind of shooting.

A 2" 12b like that sure makes the small bores look superfluous.

Nice going.
