Went out a few times season just opened for just about everything got these guys this morning with the wife and kids. (Couple of Spruce hens and a Spruce grouse in there too. Anyone else having any luck yet.
A friend of mine and I went out on Wensday. We shot 4 birds. This is a picture of what I shot.
My friend shot a male woodie and a hen malard.
What do you guys do with your feathers? I am always looking for feathers for fly tying.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
