Lets here some good dog stories as well.
Can we attach pictures in this forum now?
9 shot?!!!! My buddy bought some by accident one time (20ga) and I told him he might as well be using salt. SOB out shot me that day though.
RC - I remember duck hunting about 25 years ago and thinking everything would be steel, well should say "non-toxic" sooner rather than later.
Just another classic law... I have hunted some land in Clark county. There are some small ponds in the woods where you can sometime jump some wood ducks - gotta have non-toxic and a plugged gun. Yet, I can go on the other side of the pond and grouse hunt with an unplugged gun an "toxic" shot and shoot over the pond.
Doesn't make a lot of sense.
Definitely I am off to a slow start this year. killed my first grouse today. I was on a old, narrow logging trail when it flew up 30 + yds ahead. One shot of #7 steel shot crumpled her at 48 yds. So how far does momentum carry a bird? 5 yards? 10 yards? Probably not 10. I knew it was a long shot so I paced it off.
The highight of the day was when my son said he cant wait to go again. This weekend was his first bird hunt.
Lots of woodcock this year. Seeing/hearing more grouse than last year.
Good weekend except for the rain
We are at peak color in Price County. High winds overnight, October 3 into 4, shook a few leaves loose, but there are still plenty of leaves on the trees. These photos were taken taken 10- 4-18 along Maple Grove Road just north of Phillips. Order a free county map and visitor guide by clicking on our partner name below. Good luck hunting!
