Default 2022 Maine trip

Last week 3 of use with 2 dogs, a setter and a brit ,went to Maine for 6 days of bird hunting which ended up being 4 days because of rain. We had 5 Parkers and one Sterlingworth. We only got 2 birds with only 2 others shot at. Our best day was the last when we had 7 grouse flushes and 4 woodcock flushes. Dogs did a great job but woods where quite thick and hard walking because of logging for 3 guys in there 70's. We hard a great time, too bad weather moved in to cut it short. Gun in photo is a 12ga GH from 1899 with 26" Remington barrels, great shooter.

I'm not certain who took who, but my daughter and I spent a couple days in the woods at our place in Maine. I walked the edges, and she, a friend, and his SHP worked the woods. We had 22 Woodcock flushes, and 6, maybe 7 partridge.
I was lucky to be in just the spot to see her get her first of each; both on the wing. I think I lost another gun.

James, it looks like a good hunt, in spite of the weather. Just to get out this time of year is a pleasure.

Edgar, you need to keep those guns in use, and having your daughters use them is great for the future.

So, Reggie, are your girls candidates for any of your long-barreled beauties?

Garry one likes to shoot, the other isn't interested. And you should see the 28" 20 I picked up recently! Yes I like that length too!

Edgar, glad you ran into that many woodcock, no one in camp saw many as far as I know.
