We got 19 this morning. Could have had probably about 10 more, but we were getting a little cocky with our shooting.

Switching it up a bit. Elk season is coming up quick out west. Elk are on the top of my list of animals to hunt. My son has a muzzle loader bull tag for a late October hunt. We're packing into a wilderness area that we have been hunting for 15 years.

Looking to get some for the dog to practice some upland hunting and may go to a couple ranches and shoot a few over him since we don’t have pheasant anymore. Wondering if they are okay to eat.

Most bird suppliers here offer phez and chukar, same with the game ranches.

Besides the price, anyone ever wonder what the inside of a $400 Yeti cooler and a $50 cooler?

I did... :scratch

I'm at best an average shooter. When I shoot ducks (or any bird for that matter) I typically have bruises the next day where I shouldn't. Those are the shots that I miss or maybe just break a wing. Or worse, cripple a bird. Some days are better than others. Like those days where I kill 6 birds with let's say 8 shells and then shoot 8 shells to kill my 7th bird.
