  • gun birds

    hi all,
    any wing shooters amongst us (quail, pheasants, ducks etc)?

    I do a bit of quail when in season, pheasants once a year, and tag along on ducks in season.
    (aint got duck permit, so I just end up the retrieval dog).

    went to Ondra Pheasants middle of last year, had a ball.
    lovely place, our fair share.
    for those who haven't been pheasant shooting,....and plan on doing it,...........brush up on ya shotgun shooting.
    they're fast once they have a tail wind!
    couple of pics.
    took these home,........weren't bad eating.

    lovely country to work gun dogs in.
    cool climate, easy on the dogs feet etc

    FYI,.......these pheasants are bred for this,...released prior to the hunt,..and hunted with controlled management.
    very well ran place.

    My mouth is a watering just looking at those pheasants. I like a bit of game bird.
