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 […]

Fans of the TV show Downton Abbey, you know that attention to detail is one of the things that makes this period drama so much fun. From the tea set used on Lady Mary’s breakfast table to the cut of Lord Grantham’s suit, Downton Abbey gets things right — most of the time, anyway. In […]

Thanks to the folks at Beretta, upland hunters don’t have to spend a ton of money to get a nice double. This BL-4 is all the shotgun you need for grouse or woodcock, and even though it shares some similarities with the world’s most expensive O/U, it’s a heck a lock cheaper.
