    Just traveling back from SD. Been reflecting on the trip and already counting down the days to next year. Hunted north central part of the state and almost 100 percent of the corn is still standing and maybe half the flowers. The birds are using both a lot as has already been talked about. It...

    Great day

    Sitting here watching the sun rise on a nice crisp 45 degree Saturday morning. I’ve written many times in the past about the youth hunt put on at one of the local hunt clubs. Getting ready to head that direction for another year of introducing youths to pheasant hunting. Funny how I hadn’t...

    6 month old female field bred ESS

    Posting this to help a friend out. This female was owned by the same guy that originally had my new dog. He is not doing well battling cancer and the breeder took both dogs back to sell for the family. I bought the male and he still has the female if anyone is looking for a pup. She is dark...

    New addition to the family - Bailey

    As many of you know I had to put Copper down while we were in SD this year. Had no plans to add a second dog right away as Boucher is just 4.5 years old. Sometimes though things just seem to happen. Buddy of mine got a text from the breeder that his dog came from and he had a couple older pups...

    Good bye Copper

    Every dog owner knows eventually that day will come when it is time to make that final trip to the vet. Yesterday was that day for me and Copper. I have posted a lot of pics of him over his 14+ year life of chasing birds in 3 different states. Yesterday we had a banner morning dropping 6 birds...

Just as I got out of the truck got another text from him that he had a cripple at the other end of the field he couldnt find. Drove down...

    Rogers steel shoot deal

    Maybe there is a better place than Rogers for pricing but I couldn't find it. A case of 3" 1 1/4 oz steel loads for $169.99 shipped and from 11/20 to 11/30 Remington has double rebate on those for $100 per case so $7 a box for 3" steel shot seems tough to beat. Have to have rebate post marked...

    Steel shot size preference?

    Have never had to use steel for pheasant before. Can the experienced steel shooters tell me what size you prefer and also is 3" the way to go for this? I look forward to seeing what the opinions are on this. Thanks!

    Youth season

    Got to take two youths hunting today. First was a young fellow that has been shooting some clay birds with us lately and is a darn good shot. Two birds flushed, two shots and he had his limit in his bag. Next was my niece. She shot clay pigeons for the first time 2 weeks ago and did excellent...

    One of the best days of the year

    Beretta Upland Vests

    I have two brand new with tags still on them beretta vests for sale. The Beretta sizing tends to run small on most items so I bought these in 2XL but the sizing on these items run pretty much dead on and these are a little too big for me. Great looking vests and the Beretta quality is...

It is the closest SGL to where I will be for work. Thanks in advance for any info you...

    Favorite day of the year

    At the hunt club today for the youth pheasant hunt. Seems like I can usually only make this event about every other year. Just about to hit the field for the second run of the day. First run the "old man" did pretty good. Put up 6 and they killed 2. Had good shots at 5 of them but a good time...
