First day of grouse season I managed limit of three young blues with my old model 97 and Fed. 1 1/8 6s... My favorite opening day cover let me down again.. I think it has out grown the grouse.. Found this bunch in an area I have never seen grouse the 25 years.. saw some today, but they escaped.. No pictures yet, havenโ€™t figured out my new computer.. Have to get them loaded... Tomorrow I may try for a few doves.. Good luck this fall...

Thanks. I went out with a group on Friday including Senator Rounds and we shot a couple dozen roosters. It was a wet cool day, great to be out in the field again. Grouse season opens Saturday, I can hardly wait. I took a Franchi Affinity in 20ga, and if I don't shoot better with it this weekend, its gonna be dealt.

BK, you might have to make another trip to SF to do that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking forward to cooler weather though we in Iowa have quite a ways to go yet before our pheasant season which opens on the last weekend of October.

Already also looking forward to our December trip to SD for pheasants. Greatly. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I just might! I bought this for turkey hunting and frankly it failed to impress me then. I thought I'd give it another chance and will on Saturday. I have learned that if a shotgun doesn't fit me, it needs to just go. Plenty do fit...no need to beat my head.

In case, and I donโ€™t know what your price point is, but they do have some 20 ga. Benelli Ethos, and Ultralights on hand. At least they did a couple weeks ago, but I expect shotguns are starting to move now โ€” itโ€™s a fever. ๐Ÿ˜€

Of course those are in wood and blued steel..which I use for turkeys all the time.

Incomplete thought there. In Scheels, that is, along with the new Browning A5 16โ€™s, and many others as you know.

Thanks George, I would probably move this gun in favor of an A5 Light Twenty if I could find one that suited me. Never met an A-5 yet that didn't fit.

BK, off topic here, but related โ€” you might consider one of the new Browning A5โ€™s in a 16. They are light, good looking overall though they made the barrel too long for my tastes (28โ€ in an autoloader) and their trigger has been reviewed as too heavy Though you can check that in the store. 5 chokes.

I donโ€™t know if would fill the turkey-getting roll as well as the 20 as there are very much fewer choices in shells though Fiocchi makes a gooD uplander load as does Federal and Remington.

And Fiocchi picked such a nice color for their 16 shot shells โ€” blue. You gotta keep the important stuff in mind. ๐Ÿ˜€

Out with the dog last night (not hunting). Got two woodcock flushes in short order and a couple last weekend.

They're here!

Deb & Doug continuing their tradition of always heading out together on opening day of grouse season. This year, on our own property !

They saw 2 & Doug got one, lots of really thick foliage still;

Finished our sage grouse hunting yesterday.. On to other things.. Good year.. The dogs had a good time I shot pretty well for not shooting my shotguns since last winter.. Something I must not let happen another year.. Miss shooting.. The last two days I filled my limit with an unbelievable both grouse were killed with one shot.. I have had that happen before once or twice, but never two in a season let alone back to back.. I hope to get some pictures up soon.. My computer is a new one, and we haven't quite figured everything out yet.. Have fun...
