Yes. Keep yourself trim. That makes it easy to be active. This afternoon, I spent three hours hiking in my woods through snow that measured an average of 17 inches. At 54 years, it just felt good.

If your sport needs to cover lots of ground, and you hunt the deserts, tundra and steep hillsides of this land.
That light little gun(410 & 28ga.) makes things easy for now, but what about when old age starts to creep in.
What are you going to do with 'em?
That big runnin' dog is way too much for you, your bladder can't take long trips and the legs have gone south!
Whats your plan?
Mine is, and all my guns are 12s, my dogs are lazy Labs and I hunt 20 yards from where I park the van. DUCK HUNTING!



Behind every bush a potty break awaits.

Old legs, and smallbores....

I clicked on here thinking I'd see a picture of Lowell with a crow he'd shot with his Kimber and the cheap scope.

j0ey, "the cheap scope," is a humble reminder to me - you can't always get what you want.
Bet you know this too, with the addition of your Brummie who-dun-it!

Right Lowell! But as Mick continues.........

"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need, ah yes..."

I am 48, I worry about my eyes going more than anything else. Birds I can still see, but the clays are getting kind of hard to spot, especially those roonie stages.


Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear.

No brainer: older dogs, more choke, practice long shots at clays.

Lowell,
I remember my father once drove his car into a field, in which his two sons and a grandson were hunting pheasant.
My brother thought the old man had finally lost it as did my nephew.
Naaw I said, he'll just watch us from a safe distance and he did.
The 10x binos allowed him to watch the dogs and us for several hours.
He was all smiles later on.

Will Garfit actually traded up to a heavier gun when he got older - reconed that a heavieer gun kicked less and was less punishing to shoot.
