Just a quick photo of the start of a new season for me and Shane.

Stan, I can’t see the picture. Did you use your 10 ga. or your 8 ga.?

Good one Jeff, :D
we actually started the season with the 12 & 20 gauges, although I did seriously think about taking the 8 gauge out for a try.

PS. I had taken the photo off for a bit to edit it and get it to stay upright.

Stan, very nice picture and it looks like you did quite well. I've never been dove hunting, but I'm under the impression that they are fast and hard to hit. Are those Ithaca's? I hope Shane hit a few of them (I've seen him nail the clay targets).

Jeff,
Dove can be fast, for sure after they’ve been educated some. We started with Ithaca’s, Shane’s is the Ithaca/Lefever A Grade, his first gun. I will have to take the XE out for a spin and maybe the 8 gauge :wink:

Shane almost beat me, he seems to be getting used to outdoing me, if I’m having an off day, he tops me no problem.

If there is a better way to spend an afternoon with your son I don't know it. Nice going Stan.
