How old is Raina now? Seems I've been looking at her great work for years.

Mills, great to hear of Harry's first year hunting. I'm sure he will be a regular now.

Hi Mike she'll be 7 this December. She has really come into her own these last couple years.

Thanks for the kind words BTW

I'm posting this on behalf of my good friend Chris Dawe, member here CJ Dawe, gunsmith extraordinaire!

I think posting pictures is more than he can handle.

Chris lives in Newfoundland.....you'll have to ask him why. On the plus side, on the 4 days a year when it's not a driving wind storm, there is ptarmigan hunting to be had. These pics are of Chris's hunt earlier today with his son and dog. His boy got his first ptarmigan over a point today so they were both a little charged up over that. The area they are hunting is known as The Barrens. Sounds like something from a English gothic horror novel.

Hopefully Chris will come on and add a little first hand commentary, including what those guns are.

Edit to add: Breaking news....Chris was using a great Husqvarna model 201 sidelock in 12 gauge and his son was shooting a LC Smith Featherweight 20 gauge that Chris upgraded and gave to his son on his 13th birthday. I've seen pics of the gun....makes me want an LC Smith! (Can't believe i just said that! LOL)

Hey all, my son Jim and I went out for a couple hours yesterday. Saw birds, I managed two and Jim didn't bust a cap. Just one of those deals.

Anyway, the days bag, I was using my 16ga Ugartechea 1030

Best,

My 17 year old son, Finn and his first Sharptail in MT. It was a nice one shot kill at a respectable distance with his custom stocked Famars 20ga.

I know everyone involved, Mr. Steele, was happy and proud. Good young man can look forward to pheasants in a few weeks.

Tough terrain to drop a gun or hit a knee...unforgiving.
