Well my boys and I had a wonderful day in the woods. I really cherish being with my sons enjoying all the good Lord gave us. I didn't even bring a shotgun with me on this day, it was all about the kids. They both harvested a nice rooster.

Life is good.

I can't say how much I miss pheasant hunting. Growing up in Idaho, that was the second most exciting day of the year. The most exciting was, of course, opening day of deer season.

Looks like you and the boys had a great day. *Sigh* Wish I could've been there. As it is, I'll be out at the Peach Orchard most of next week starting tomorrow. Dove hunting. Season ends on the 9th of October. I'd better get while the getting is good.

Dom,

Good for you and the boys! You must be very proud! I hope to get out soon with my 7 and 4 year old sons and try to bag some Maine ruffed grouse. If we do, you'll be sure to see some pics too.

What were the boys using for shotguns?

Thanks guys!!

Cush, my younger son is using a Mossberg Bantam 20ga. and the older one is using a Mossberg 500 12 ga.. I like to start them on a pump shotgun, then let them choose what they want when they get older just like I did. One thing I will tell you, they can pump those guns pretty dang fast!!

I miss the pheasant also. Arizona pheasant hunting requires being drawn for the archery only hunt, with a one bird limit, down by Yuma
Good to see the youngsters out shooting them. I passed up a bunch of quail last season to let a first time bird hunter take the shots. The look on the lad's face was well worth it. Ya' done well by them Dom kfjdrfirii

those are some nice birds.

haven't been pheasant hunting in over 20 years. eastern oregon may still be good, but the willamette valley isn't doing so hot on them. atleast where i can go.

Eh, tell my nephews that tizwin is for peasants and desert injuns like the Apaches. We're more sophisticated, us Cherokees. We used to make something similar but we've gone over to pulque and mescal. It gets you liquored up quicker. We're more into effect than aesthetics. Not only that, but guzzling tizwin makes you want to go scalp pale faced devils. I wouldn't know anything about that.

What? Can't believe what I'm reading..... Haven't you looked at your new birthday tattoo lately?

Just in case you don't want to bend over in the mirror.... This is a Cherokee "Counting Coup".....



My people stopped scalping the palefaces when they started showing up with caplock guns and rifled bores..... we learned early on that you never bring a bow to a musket fight.... These days some Mohawks scalp them at the casinos instead ....

Yeah, well...okay. The image does bear a passing resemblance to your's truly. You have to remember, the poor soul who did the engraving also lost his hair that day. That wasn't his best effort.

Tell the nephews I might be up there for the Redneck Shoot in 2011. The old man will retire in December of next year and will have plenty of time to travel.

Mi Casa es Su Casa~.... be sure to stop off at DW's on the way BACK..... I want a shot at Carolina's Big Sister while she's still unsullied by that ravenous brute..... 'Cides he's getting a new Eldo today or tomorrow and I can't compete. My Gran Marq just doesn't have the same amount of headroom...

You got me there, pal. I don't know nothin' about cars. Trucks and jeeps - that's all I know. 2011. I'll be there. Don't let that wild Injun slathered in blue clay and wearin' a bear skin thong whats slippin' through the pines put you off your feed. It's just me doin' a little recon.

I'd intended to sneak off to the Peach Orchard today, but the wife decided that there were more important things for me to do around here. Aaargh! That's okay, though. We really did need a new freezer.

Well, Drew, I won't be back here for a couple of days. I'll say hello to Carolina and her sister for ya. ;) Dove hunting in Orion's Belt is fantastic this year. Taking my .458 Winchester mag. - those suckers are as big as a Rhino and twice as mean.
