Obviously there's no need to wish you a merry christmas!! Congratulations and use it in good health. Kirrmeister's right though. Don't lean it against a tree or you wont find it till the leaves change color!!! Happy hunting!
Merry Christmas and welcome to the great world of hunting. Thats a beautiful gun. Take good care of it and you'll always remember this holiday.
My Dad gave me my first gun when I was 11 yrs old ...for Christmas. It was a Marlin/Glenfield .22 cal bolt action. It has a 7 shot clip and a 26" barrel. A lot of squirrels and rabbits made it to the stew pot because of that gun. I recently gave it to my daughter for her hunter safety class. She won't give it back!
Always keep it clean and oiled and it will last a lifetime. Happy hunting and be safe. Welcome to BGH
Thats a grt shotgun you will be very happy with it I shoot a nova and my personal opinion is that benelli is the fastest pump gun on the market I also shoot an O/U berretta 686. Good luck hunting with it.

Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
