There are a bunch of  decent, D-grade Parker double barrel shotguns on Gunbroker right now. The first one is this 10 gauge D-grade hammergun. To my eye, the gun looks cleaned up a bit. The action looks too silver to be all original. A few of the screws are buggered, so it has been monkeyed […]

Big thought on the last night of my week long hunting trip: I need to dry out, quit the BS, and get back to my real life. Puck and I had just had 5 1/2 days on the ground hunting. We  lost one day to Maine regs (you can’t hunt on Sunday) and another to […]

So were over in western Maine right now. I shot up here yesterday because I heard the grouse numbers were good. Puck and I spent about 4 hours hunting over the entire day. She’s been running hard since Saturday, so I’m trying to take it easy on her. Even though we didn’t hunt that long, […]

Bob Foshay is an oddity in Maine. Grouse and woodcock are a side job for many of the hunting guides up here. They fill in the gaps between deer, bear, or moose season. Bob’s all about the uplands. Stuff with fur or racks? He doesn’t like them. Bob’s also a dog guy. He thinks “dog.” […]
