Well seems to me its been like this for the past few years ill be out bear hunting and see tonnes of the damn birds then the first day of season opens yesterday i go out all morning and didnt see one bird but the bush is still way to think anyway ahh well ill go out tommorrow on my day off i should see a few ill mostly be doing some walking tho i can see that now cause i wasted way to much gas yesterday (not too mention gas prices are rediculous) specially if you use your vehicle alot to get where your going anyway ill post more as the season goes on (aint hunting life great)
i guess no one else partridge hunts or just dosent wanna talk about it went out again for about 5 or 6 hours of walking got one all day ahh well its a good work out anyway on the old legs seems to me all the birds took off all of a sudden.
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....
