Thanks.  It's a Beretta 12ga AL391 Technys.  Had it about 14 years and love the gun.  Lighter than most 12ga and it fits me well.  I also have a couple of Benelli autoloaders and used my 20ga Montefeltro Limited a few days last week.  Taking them apart and cleaning them today after the last two weeks in the woods. 

I know the season is ending early but not sure if it's November or December.  I don't usually hunt past the end of October because I don't like trucking through the snow.

Very nice shotgun Birdboy, Benelli?

There was talk about closing the season end of November, is it still open through December for grouse?

Just closed my last day for the season.  Saw lots of birds in two days hunting the week of the 15th and four days the week of the 22nd.  All told flushed 109 grouse and only 10 woodies.  Managed to connect on 7 grouse and 4 woodies.  My Weimaraner is 11 now and while old Lucy has slowed down, she managed some amazing points and retrieves.  I found some new, very nice cover that produced birds and will explore those areas further next year.  Always love spending time in the woods.  Hunted Iron, Price and Vilas counties.

well a 5 hour hunt turned into a 4 hour hunt after I discovered I forgot my lunch at home. Hate it when that happens. 

Put up 3 grouse and 3 pheasants today. took 2 shots #7 steel again. 1 grouse and 1 pheasant. Maybe that makes me look like a skilled shooter then I wont mention the woodcock that I  missed.

Hunted in Sawyer County last weekend. We put up 26 grouse and 2 woodcock in 10 hours of hunting and harvested 4-grouse (2-hrs Saturday, 3-hrs Sunday, 3-hrs Monday, and 2-hrs Tuesday) Best action was early morning thick popples/aspens and creek bottoms. Not sure why we did not see much after 10am.

Still finding birds along creek bottoms and tag alders. Looking forward to a great weekend. Plenty of birds and zero other hunters=perfect. Good luck and stay safe.

It "was" healthy just close probably a foot and a half away. Gave itself for the bird.

Got up to the UP last week, and got out a few times. It was neat hunting in the snow. Flushed about 15 in about 4 hours 2 shots no birds. They seemed skittish.

Thought I was on one but this got in the way on the swing haha.

I used to waterfowl hunt in Lake Erie about a mile East of Camp Perry. You have to use non toxic shot, but Camp Perry(home of the national rifle & pistol matches), can shoot TONS of lead into the Lake every year! Politicians!
