Hey all. We need to liven up this forum a little bit. How about this? What was your first successful upland bird hunt? Gun? Species? Age? Here's mine. My first bird was a pheasant that I harvested when I was 13 and hunting with a great little springer spaniel and a .410 bolt action gun, I'm not sure who made it. Took 2 and 1/2 seasons to get that bird and I've never been more proud of anything else I've harvested. Funny, I've shot more than my share of all types of birds since then but I don't remember any as clearly as that one. How 'bout everyone else?
