My youngest son and I went this morning.
Had a decent T-storm roll through at 6:45-7:15 and we didn't get to the tree line until about 8Am sharp.
Saw some birds. A few cuttings. He saw 1, but by the time he worked around to where he could get a shot, it had disappeared.
We had a good time. But, didn't get any this time.
While I am thinking about it, he didn't carry the semiauto this time. He carried the old NEF single shot 12. Said he liked it better. Shorter, lighter, easier to get through brush with it.
Both guns shoot good, so it doesn't matter to me which he carries. But, I probably just lost another gun.
