Papa said it was most fun on a high tide with a full moon. I suppose spring tides made the pushing easy as well as spotting the downed birds.

I couldn't resist bringing this Sept rail hunting story back to the top. A good chuckle for sure.

Stumbled across this thread and loved every minute of it...here are a few pics from this past season.

Commonly considered a fools errand and snipe hunting a great practical joke but I can assure you its real and anything but a joke! Miles through coastal marshes and sporty shooting is required to scratch out a few of these dainty migratory beauties.

I wont require a lullaby to be put to sleep.

Remington Autoloading Shotgun

Thanks Bill,

It is a circa 1910 production Remington Autoloading Shotgun Grade No.5 (Expert).

Two barrels 28" SR Cylinder with Twin Ivories and a later Remington Factory added 30" VR Full.

Came out of upper Indiana in a Red Head 2 barrel leather case.

It has good dimensions and just the right amount of wear to be steady in the field.

At a gun show about ten years ago I saw a Browning A-5 with about ther same amount of engraving coverage - beautiful old gun with some honest wear that somebody had cut the barrel to 22" and mounted rifle sights on it to make it a deer gun... what a horrible shame.
