Default What Parkers do you plan to hunt with this fall?

Ducks: 10ga CH 34"bbls, 12ga BH 30"bbls, 12ga #3 frame DHE 30"bbls, 20ga DHE 30"bbls
Texas quail: 20ga DH 26" bbls

All new to me for 2919 except the #3 frame DHE.
What about you?

I don't think the BH "Richardson" gun has been out of New York State in 117 years. It will open the NY duck season with me in the Montezuma marsh.

Early ducks will face #4 kent bismuth, late season ducks will face #3 kent tm #3's.

Dove 1st segment 16 DHE 30” vent rib
Dove 2nd segment 20 DHE 32”
Dove 3rd segment 28 VHE 30”
Quail. If I could find a wild quail in TN I would cock my thumb and shoot it with my index finger. If quail were abundant I would use a straight stock, double trigger CHE 20

I have a real nice DHE-16 with 28" M/F barrels, English grip, DT, SFE, 6lbs-9oz. I plan to use it out west in late November for wild roosters. I bought it first of the year, sent it to Del Grego back in feb/march for roll joint, black the barrels and guard, replace some bad screws. I did get it back last week, he did nice job and the gun looks wonderful but the ejectors no longer work. So I shipped it back and hope he gets it fixed and back in my hands by mid November for my Kansas hunt. The only thing the gun still needs is the but plate re-blued and the 4 screws replaced then the gun will be a looker...(-: I did not plan to color case of receiver as it still looks good as it is. I plan to send it back to Larry after hunt season ends for this work. Fingers crossed for getting it back for Kansas. SXS Ohio

I hunt grouse around the edges of clear cuts in New Brunswick so occasionally get a long second shot. I'm thinking my newly acquired 0 frame 16 ga Damascus GH bored Cylinder / Full should work great with the 2 1/2" low pressure 7/8 oz loads I've been testing. I've patterned 8's and 9's so far. The plan is to use 8's in the left barrel and 9's in the right. If I get into thick cover or when there are woodcock around I'll throw a spreader load in the left barrel. Same gun will be used on local pheasants with 1 oz of 7 1/2's and Bismuth #4's when duck hunting.

Got to love the 16 for it's versatility!

Doves this afternoon with my 12 CHE bored improved and full with 2 1/2 RST's 7s. Do not think it will be a good shoot, but will enjoy working Babydog Boykin the fellowship and cold beer afterwards. What,when and where will determine gun use after today.
