Default New Picture on the Home Page

A really nice and well set-up shot of sandhill cranes ("ribeye on the wing") and a very nice DH used to take them!

Nice job Mark! and Thanks John!

Great job, love hunting Sandhill's! Having a Parker in you're hand while hunting them makes it that much sweeter!

For those who did not see my earlier post - Here is the backstory on sandhill double -

Back from Canada (outside Regina) - good hunt in damp weather - on and off rain throughout. Had opportunities for Ducks Geese and Sandhills and made good on them. My 3 frame 32" DHE combined with KM #3 1 1/14 oz. really reached out when needed on big birds. The 32" VHE was deadly on ducks and a couple Canadas.
I had much fun watching my hunting friends fluster with the lodge issued jam-o-matics. Of course my Parker's were flawless - as expected. A couple pics of crane decoy spread and 3 frame in a barley field.

The DHE is built on a #3 Frame
barrels 4lbs 14oz. gun weighs 9.05 lbs on digital scale.
I purchased the gun from a much respected member of this forum. My good friend Craig located it for me after a multi year search. I am lucky to have it.

3 frame 12's are underrated. I have two and love both. Mine are not as nice as Mark's

Dean beat me to the punch as that is exactly what I was thinking, you are lucky to have it. I have never shot a 3 frame 12 but I do like heavy target guns. Sounds like I could get used to that one.
