Not many birds here, but Gus made the best of it.


This is probably why the birds were so shy. That frog on the decoy scared them off


We have mud, yes, we have mud.

It is a Greener Fascile Princeps, 40 guinea model, made in 1902.

I should add, it cleans up very nicely, just like Gus.

3 flushes, two really really small birds and a hen. Shot 4 times, no birds. All the shots were screaming down hill, seems impossible to get below them with enough lead.

Posted for two of my favorite people, John Roberts and son Ross Roberts. Opening day in MS. These guys are the salt of the earth.

They're killing me, as I wait for Saturday coming, but I'm happy for them. BTW, Ross is the handsome one. wink grin

A little unusual post for this thread, but GA has an alligator season on a draw system. My oldest son George Jr. drew this year and has been hunting several nights lately. He got this one night before last at a lake south of town:



The law requires that the gator be caught first with a hook or some other method before being killed. George jr. shot this one with a crossbow with a line attached to the dart. The line was supposed to detach with a float to track the animal's movements, but the line got wrapped around the bow somehow and he found himself kneeling on the prow of the boat with the crossbow in his hands, and an eight foot gator pulling on the other end of the line.

He got the line loose after a pretty scary "nantucket sleigh ride" and they followed the gator into some lilly pads where they could pull him to the top. Then they threw a weighted treble on a rope over the gator and pulled him close enough to be harpooned.

Finally George jr. killed the gator with a 12ga bangstick. After all that story, I kind of felt sorry for the gator.

It is at the processors now to be skinned and the meat processed into steaks with the white meat and sausage with the dark...Geo

Do you enjoy Gator George? I have eaten some from Florida but did not care for it.

Looks like fun night out on the water though. Good for George jr!
