    Truly a first, Capt Russell Owen Master water fowler, Master Decoy carver and gun
    enthusiast wanted to show some respect to his heritage and grandfather , so he hunted with his 130 year old winchester lever action shotgun for kings with custom steel shot loads. Another record set on island X by team X-Treme, Now this one will be a hard one to top. Congrats on a hunt that will truly go down in history 3 generations worth.

    My 2nd trip to hunt kings was over the top. It was short and quick but fulfilled every expectation. I ended up with a few bonus birds! Super excited about them! Here is my bag, plus a few more Kings.
