    686 Onyx

    Sooo... I'm kinda embarrassed about this. I have a 12 ga 686 Onyx that I got for my 18th birthday in 98. I've probably put 15k rounds through. I also pheasant hunt with it so it's gotten rained and snowed on. My question is, should I take it apart enough to spray out the action? Or should...

    2018 Pheasant Reports

    Hey guys, It's awfully quiet on this thread. Anyone else out hunting? I got out opening weekend. Saturday I checked out some of the glacial habitat restoration areas. Found some good spots for later in the year once all the crops are off. Didn't flush any birds but I think the dogs were...

    Second Trip to SD

    Hey all, Thanks for all the reports that are coming in. My good friend and I are heading out to Arlington again this year. Last year we did pretty well with 11 birds in 3 days hunting. I'm pretty revved up to get out there. We had a great time, the people are awesome and the hunting was pretty...

    Dog Box

    Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade from two dog crates to a two hole dog box for the bed of my new truck. I had a topper on my old truck but my wife doesn't like them so this is the compromise. I'm going to need a box that is good in the weather. I'm also hoping to find one that has a gear...

    Had a scare

    I went grouse hunting last Sunday with Ellie, my 7 year old ECS. The hunt went fine. Two days later, I noticed a lump on her neck. The next day it was bigger. I got her into the vets office today. Turns out it is a big abscess. He drained it and prescribed antibiotics. I can't believe how fast...

    WI Spaniel trainer

    Hey guys, I will be getting an English cocker pup in March or April 2017. My current dog is 6 years old. I trained her myself. She's great at quartering, trailing and flushing birds. She lacks in the retrieving department. I didn't force fetch her. She can retrieve a ball all day. Give her a...

    Thank you to all who gave me advice about coming to KS. We hunted Graham County last Friday/Saturday. Even though I didn't hit a bird:mad:, we had opportunities every field we hunted. We probably moved 75 birds (about 60% hens) in a day and a half. 75% were wild flushes but we had a fair share...

    Habitat Question

    Hey all, As we all know habitat is the one thing that will save our sport. I'm going to try to help. My uncle owns a 120 acre farm that borders a river bottom that historically had wild birds, not a lot but there always were a few. Over the last five years I haven't seen any hens with broods...

    There's nothing else I'd rather be doing now! Hot cup of coffee, beautiful morning and a spot to myself. Life couldn't be better! Now if the birds cooperate...

    First trip to Kansas

    Hey guys, I'm finally going to head west to go upland hunting late November or early December. I'm thinking about north central and west judging from the Kansas game and fish site. Looks like there's a good amount of WIHA land. It's most likely going to be 2 guys and an English Cocker Spaniel...
