I seem to recall a pheasant hunt with Bing and Phil Harris wherein Bing was shooting a 28ga SxS Purdey.

I almost can't beleive this topic is being discussed! Almost every year, at some point during the dove season, I mention an episode of A.S. with Bing Crosby and Phil Harris shooting doves in South Africa from a blind situated over a small pond- both using 28ga over/unders! A TV hunt that is ,for some reason, more memorable to me than any other? Those little shells were so neat when I was a kid. No one has ever known what I was talking about!

Ben, that's the Sand Grouse episode I was talking about!! It's my favorite, too. At the time I watched it, I was young enough that it was the first time I'd heard of the 28 gauge.

Jimmie Stewart or Jackie Stewart? I think Jackie is the better trapshooter.

I bought what VHS tapes there are for my Dad at Christmas a few years ago. It's only a few episodes, maybe 12 in all, and none of the ones that are being discussed here.
I think there are only three tapes, a bird hunting, big game, and fishing one. If there are more please let me know, I never could find any others even after a year of searching.

What you describe Mike are the only bird hunting episodes of American Sportsman that were ever released on tape.

One of the best shows was Andy Devine shooting woodcock with his 410 Parker. I remember him saying He had had a complete set of Parkers but the kids had them now. As I remember it was a skeet gun with beavertail and he shot it well.
