The plan is my Dad’s VH then a 16 VH and then Sir Frederick’s DHE. All will see RST ammo. After that I think a lifter or two should see the field again. Here is what I hope to duplicate with Sir Frederick’s piece.

Hopefully all or most of the ones I have acquired this year. Particularly the ones acquired after the hunting season. Excited about trying a GH 16 on one frame with original 26 inch barrels. It handles better than some of the 0 frames

PSS barrels or Damascus Mills?

I have a 16 ga. Trojan on the 1-frame with 26” barrels that is about as light and quick as any of my 0-frames.

If I do the dove thing tomorrow it’ll be with a 16 gauge VH 26” on an 0 frame . If I’m able to get out this week for early goosing it’ll most likely be an EH 10 on a 3 frame with 32” pipes or an EH 3 frame with 34” pipes or quite possibly a DH 10 on a 3 frame with 32” barrels . If I get an invite for ducks this year it’ll most likely be a 12 gauge DH 3 frame with 28” barrels . And if I plunk a deer with a shotgun this year it’ll most likely be a 10 gauge grade 0 , 4 frame with 34” barrels . I might add the only one of those I’ve hunted before is the EH 32” for a couple deer , the rest have been added since last hunting season .

Leaving next Monday for Saskatchewan. Ducks, Geese and Sandhills.

1910 VHE 16ga./32" SG 1 1/2 frame
Kent 2 3/4"1 1 1/16 oz. #5

1905 DHE 12ga/32" PG 3 frame
Kent 2 3/4" 1 1/4 oz #3

Hoping it goes our way. Report to follow.

Still not completely sure of Vanderbilt gun lineup. Certainly will include 20 ga. and 16 ga. early and Bigger guns after the freeze.

I hunted with two so far this season. The early goose season opened yesterday in MN and I took out a Grade 0 10 gauge lifter with #2 Bismuth and had the hammers pulled back twice but no shots. Today I took the 28 reproduction out for doves and shot one.
