South Dakota’s 2012 pheasant hunting season starts tomorrow, noon. I’m sure folks are going bird crazy just thinking about it. I’ve hunted SD’s opener a handful of times. For me, the day always meant lots of birds, lots of shooting and experiences I’ll always remember (and the night meant lots of drinking). Regardless of how […]

Montana. I sure am missing it…

In my mind, heaven would be spending every autumn chasing birds. You would start in Saskatchewan and head south, and you would defintely spend a lot of time in Montana. I’ve hunted out in Montana a couple of times. The last one was a few years ago – maybe 5+ now – and we were […]

Then one day –BAM!–the nugget that you’ve been searching for materliazes and you can barely believe your eyes. That’s how I felt when this 20 gauge Charles Daly Diamond Grade double […]

Even though their birds (Scolopax rusticola) a lot bigger, the way they Europeans hunt them is very similar to how we do things over here. Check out this video from Greece to see what I mean. There’s some cool shots of birds migrating in at night […]

Well, the day got off to a slow start. In the AM, we hunted some grouse & woodcock covers in central Maine. We had very little luck – 1 grouse & 3 woodcock. The afternoon was better, though. We found a new woodcock cover and it had a bunch of local birds in it. I […]

My Opener, Take 2…

Last Saturday was a bit of a bust. Puck and I spent the morning scouting new covers. We found some good looking spots, but just about all of them were filled with NO HUNTING/NO TRESPASSING signs. I HATE that, but what can you do? Puck and I ended up finding just one woodcock and one […]

I don’t follow Italian sidelock shotguns all that much. That being said, something tells me that this nearly-new Piotti that Cabela’s just listed must be a good deal. William Larkin Moore has a price of $36,600 for one of these brand new. Piotti King 1 SxS .410g – $13,999 Here’s more on it from Cabela’s […]
