    New upland gun!

    Been looking at o/u's for a while, in my price range there wasn't going to be anything of reasonable quality that I wouldn't want to replace in a couple years. Happened across a gorgeous 1973 Auto 5 Light 12. Shot a few rounds thru it this morning after chasing teal and really instantly fell in...

    Boss shotshells?

    Anybody try them? I've got a couple different boxes to try out, going to pattern them this weekend. I'll primarily use them for waterfowl, but cant hurt to keep some lead out of the areas I hunt either

    Favorite O/U 16 gauge?

    My lovely wife owe's me a shotgun, I'm covered for turkey, waterfowl and deer with my current lineup. I'd like a 16 gauge O/U for chasing rooster/quail and sporting clays. Looking at Fausti or possibly a F.A.I.R. of some model. Would like to stay under $2500. Thoughts?

    Gear ?'s

    Good morning, I need a pair of upland pants. I have insulation I can wear underneath so not a huge deal breaker if they aren't overly warm, just need to be durable. Also wondering what you're favorite vest is? I'm going to primarily be chasing upland game here in Iowa, however after my wife...

    Sam's last bird

    Good afternoon, Quick story about my Dad's bird dog, Sam. Ole Sam will be 13 this year, has hip issues from jumping their dang 6 foot fence chasing after squirrels and really struggles if he hunts more than a half hour or so. Really tough seeing such a good hunting dog not be able to do...

    Sweet 16?

    Hello from IA

    New to the site, looking to get more into bird hunting. Tough proposition here in IA as the birds have been in a sharp decline since I was a little kid, but I still enjoy getting out after them when I'm not chasing ducks and bucks!
