    Bought a new gun. First ever a-5, Belgium 20 gauge. First time ever shooting it. It will be my “no chance of rain” gun. Love it. 3rd, 4th and 5th shots ever with it a true triple.
    Took a youngster with me tonight, to retrieve. The handsome Lab you see in most my pics has a bad case of salmon poisoning. She should pull through. It’s uncivilized to pick up your own birds, so....

    Trying to do my part for ducks this AM, wind is blowing harder than forecast. Suppose to be 7 to 10, but my meter is pushing above 20.

    Secnd set of the day, nothing so far here.

    Sorry to hear about the pup. Very cool on the triple.

    Bought the gun in this photo the evening before Thanksgiving (last one they had) and took it out Thanksgiving morning. First thing had a flock of 25 ringers come in and pulled a triple. Never done that on ringers. And first three trigger pulls on the gun ever!!!!

    She get into some dead fish on the river? I don't take my dog on the river when there are tons of spawned out carcasses everywhere. If he doesn't eat them he rolls in them...

    I’m sure it was a dead one on the high tide line in one of the bays I hunt. Almost impossible to avoid. I’d have to quit hunting her to be 100% safe. Hopefully she built up an immunity for the future. My Chessy had it real bad 10 years ago. She disappeared and my brother found her curled up in a ball in the middle of a big field full of tall grass after 5 days. That dog ended up at the vets for 6 days.
    Hunting my chocolate this morning for the first time in 10 days. She’s wound up like a 12 day clock!
