Lexi and I headed down to Cape Cod on Sat to check out the Setter Club of New England’s spring field trial. I entered Lexi in two stakes: the Amateur Derby and Gundog. She took 3rd in both. Here are some pics from the day.

What’s the perfect gauge for grouse & woodcock hunting? A lot of guys think it’s a 20, and even though I would disagree, I see their point.

I’m not much of a target shooter, and I don’t spend a lot of time on skeet fields or sporting-clay courses. When I do show up to try either one, I’m usually one of the few guys there with an old SxS. What does everyone else carry?  Newish OUs, of course: Perazzis, Berettas, Browning, and more and more, […]

Last month, I was fortunate to spend a few day in Las Vegas at Safari Club International’s annual get together. It was a huge show, featuring outfitters, gunmakers and retailers from around the globe.

Right now, the American Woodcock is migrating back from its wintering grounds in the southern United States. Many of these softball-sized birds will travel 1000+ miles as they return to their breeding grounds, some from Louisiana all the way to Maine and Canada. They make this trip twice a year. Just think about that. Amazing. This […]

If I say “Browning” most shotgun guys think “OU”. But Browning has also offered a line of highly regarded SxS shotguns. Tagged the “BSS”, these doubles came in two basic categories: Boxlocks and sidelocks. All of these shotguns were made in Japan by Miroku, and today they’ve proven themselves to be solid, dependable firearms. Browning BSS sidelock […]

Warmer weather has come early to New England, and Lexi and I have been out taking advantage of it. Here are some shots from the weekend.
