    I made this up for a buddy. Wasn't sure where to post this up at. Brass hardware with 15 drops and skull beads added to the drops. Let me know what you think......

    It would be cool to use for pictures (for dove and quail).:tu

    Practically speaking though, a plastic bag or game vest is a lot easier and probably less messy to use.

    Old cooler with ice does fine. I like to get them cooled down quick. I am not crazy about the idea of my doves hanging out in a vest pocket when it is 95 covered in dog slobber with pellet holes in them.

    I wish that you were allowed to clean them in the field and keep the head/wings for proof to match up with the number of breasts in the cooler. Would be practical and probably make for better table fare.

    I think it is pretty cool, but agree that it is not very practical. I do like how it would help you keep count.
