I absolutely got away with one this year. Hit it with two pieces of shot. One in her leg, the other entered under her wing and got her lungs. She flew about 150 yards and then folded and hit the ground. We thought she hit a tree branch and broke her neck until I started plucking her.
I was very happy, overall, with the season but would have liked one or two more birds. We got six last year in Dale's rookie campaign. I was hoping to top that.
My daughter (5 years old going on 18) loves to cook and eat pheasant so the one I have in the deep freeze (A small hen) for when my...
The final tally in MA for Dale and I was 5 birds harvested, 7 flushed.
Hunted Bolton Flats on 11/12 and put up three birds, harvested two there. The new shotgun is a lazer and SO much easier to tote around for 3 or 4 hours than my silver pigeon.
All that said, I didn't have as much time as...
It was damp but not soaked. Very huntable. It's just getting hammered.
I was there for two hours and heard lots of gunfire. Chatted with a dude and his two enormous (and chonky) labs for a bit. He got one down by the river on the way to the cattails portion.
Spaniel, yep. He's a Boykin Spaniel from Briar Ridge Kennel in VA. Awesome couple who owns that guide service and kennel. They also breed champion quality Brits.
Boykins are the state dog of SC and were bred there to hunt turkey, upland, and waterfowl. They were "designed" to be compact as a...
I'm heading to Bolton Flats tomorrow morning and will report back.
I've been hitting a local WMA a couple of times a week and it's been SLAMMED. I hunted lunch today, no other cars until I was leaving when a dude showed up.
Came back a couple hours later to five cars in the tiny lot.
Looking to sell my Gen 1 M&P 9mm.
I shot this in USPSA for a season before moving on to other guns and divisions. It's sat in my safe ever since.

The trigger was unsucked and upgraded by Greg Derr after I purchased...
Or may not even run. Example: My CZ457 will not, under any circumstances, run Eley Club. I can sometimes get it to run Eley Edge. I haven't tried Eley Match or TenX yet.
It loves SK Match and one or two other imprints from that line.
Thanks! I'll put my pull gauge on it when I pick it up from the FFL this week. The dude I bought it from put YoDave parts in so I'm hoping that it's pretty slick already.
I have bad luck messing with triggers.
Recently, the only Wednesday night USPSA practice that's open to the public is the second Wednesday of the month.
We've been wrapping around 6 or so. We'll shoot later when it gets and stays warmer.
