Lexi becomes a bird dog…

Even though our trip to Maine a couple weeks ago produced few birds, it did give Lexi the chance to get out in the woods and start on down the path to becoming a bird dog. Here’s are a few quick videos of her in action. Overall, she handles well – coming when she’s called, […]

Awesome duck hunting video…

If this doesn’t make you want to get up at 3am and head out to duck blind, nothing will. I love this guy’s percussion gun, and his attitude toward hunting and old doubles. SITKA: Smoke & Feathers from Rockhouse Motion on Vimeo.

I’m in a funk. My big hunting trip was a couple wees ago and things did not go well – bird wise, anyway. This annual trip is my bird binge for the year, and I put a lot of hope into it. The ways things turned out left me depressed. I’ve hit the western part […]

Will the birds be back? That’s the big questions thousands of hunters will be asking as they head  today for the opening of South Dakota’s 2014 pheasant hunting season.

We’re off to try again…

Lexi and I headed out for our first day in the field last Saturday. Lexi did well, but the birds were scarce. We moved two grouse and zero woodcock (and we hit two of my best woodcock spots). The day started in some classic New England upland coverts – overgrown farmland broken up by plowed […]

Good friends, good dogs, plenty of birds. That’s all it takes for a nice day in the field – in the UK or over here. This is one of the best produced shooting videos I’ve seen on Youtube. It was shot by Jonathan M McGee, a man who knows shooting as well as he knows […]

I’ve always like L.C. Smiths. While Parkers and Foxes are nice shotguns, I like the looks of a SxS with sidelocks. L.C. Smith was the only major American maker to build sidelocks, and today I think these guns are some of the best deals out there. While Parkers keep going up in price, and people […]

I love Beretta’s 686 Black Onyx O/Us . Close your eyes and put a 686 to your shoulder; swap it for a Boss O/U and do the same. The differences are slight. Believe me, I’ve done it many times. But even though 686s feel great, they do have a weak spot: the wood.  Plywood is […]
