Thanks for the good wishes and prayers. It is a slow recovery, but every day is better. I suppose I will go and maybe I can convince my daughter to shoot on my peg while I spot them.

I have not completely decided, but probably taking a c. 1920 Parker GH 12 gauge I recently acquired.

Bird prospects where I've looked have not been good this week. Oh well, if the dove shoots puke out I'll be spending the Labor Day weekend at a place where the fishing is good and the arrowhead hunting is the best in GA. A country boy will survive!..Geo

That would be a great day. I hope we can make that happen. P.M. me about it.

I will be taking my 2 12 gauge Remington DEO’s. Normally like to shoot a 28 gauge opening day but I am really itching to shoot these.

AyA 4/53 12 gauge, Husqvarna 12 gauge Hammergun and quite possibly either the 10 gauge 1894 Remington or Lefever G grade.
Doves in the morning and snipe in the afternoon.

Still planning to try the little Savage .410 O/U on doves, but I may have just picked up my official dove assassination tool from Cabela's: a Dickinson 28 gauge SxS with 30 inch tubes and English stock with decent although not spectacular wood. Comes in a pretty slick little zippered leather / Sueded case with snap caps and five choke tubes. Pretty slick looking little piece. Anybody have any experience with this particular gun? I made a trade, got a good deal, and it sure is mighty pretty!! I hope I can shoot it as good as it looks!!!

Perry, that's exactly what mine is, except in .410. A 28 should be absolutely perfect, and a much more forgiving mistress than the .410. When I shoot sub gauge competition with my Verona 30" barreled 28/.410 two barreled set, I always shoot several birds higher score with the 28. The 28 just amazes me how it hammers clays, but I've never used it on birds. Probably will this year.

The Dickinson is a great value, and easy on the eyes. This will be mine's third year in the bird fields, and I've been nothing but impressed with it. My biggest concerns when ordering it from Cabela's was (1) regulation, and (2) trigger pulls. Both were fine, once I found which load it liked best.

How are the triggers on yours? So far, all comments I've heard on Dickinson triggers have been good.

I picked it up only yesterday and have not had a chance to fire it yet. However, in the case was two separate targets showing pattern with a couple of different chokes with I think the modified choke. It appeared that a dove could not have flown through either. Also with #7 shot at 25 yards. Looks good so far. More on the triggers once I try them. I have read other reports that some of the heavier ones lighten up after wearing in with a box of so of rounds fired.
