Another Good Day...

Son and I went out to beat the bush for grouse today.

He was using my Savage model 24 .223 over 20ga. It was a good shot, he dropped the bird at about twenty yards as it broke away after the flush.



He headed back to the house and I headed farther out. A warm day, we hit the mid 50s, clear and a bit breezy keeping it from getting too hot. A perfect fall day, and the birds were cooperating.



With a three piece on the bag I headed back myself.


Can't ask for days better than this one.

  1. Nice catch!
    Don't the birds become annoying, hanging and dangling so low while going?

    1. Not really, you'd be surprised how comfortable the ride is when the bag is at the proper length. Plus it encourages me to move slower to keep them from swaying, this means I see more game! Kinda like a built in speed governor.

      Additionally I've made a couple belt danglers so when the bag is too heavy I use the danglers on the strap rings and affix the bag to my belt making it kinda like a belt/butt pack.
