Not so elegant but a basic tailgate pic from last Saturday. I won't even try to wax poetic!

....except that I'll note that in the pic above is the 16ga Remington Sportsman that my late father carried. He built a rep as a fine wing shot on it and it's the only shotgun I'll ever toss at an upland bird.

I am a shooter, not a hunter really. But hunting birds I've traveled all over the state. It's about enjoying my dog's. Used to take the dog's out during season now and then and leave the shotgun at home and take along the blank gun.
I got a story. Old friend, Jack, and I hunted together every weekend during the season. He brought along another guy he met one time. We got out to where we were going to start from and let out dog's out to run around while we got out the guns and vest. The new guy wanted to know what kind of dog I had, she was pointing at a small clump of grass in a plowed field. He wanted to bet me dinner there was no bird there so I took him up on it. Jack pipe's in and ask's for the same bet and the guy say's sure. Something about my old Hannah, she never ever lied! I went out and popped a couple Huns for her! Great meal for dinner that night and the guy learned not to bet against Hannah. God she's been gone abut 20 yrs and I still miss her!
