Smashing them in the snow!
« on: January 02, 2017, 06:04:00 PM »
Managed to get out a couple times this last week in the snow, and boy was it good! They were decoying to the Foxpro like a Foxpro commercial. Breaking in the new rifle has been a real hoot! Hope you guys are getting after them too!

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Nice job  :tup:
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

Snowshoes. I've used them quite a bit this season. This last time the top inch was frozen, so made for a loud approach to the set, but the dogs didn't seem to hear. Seemed REALLY LOUD to me, but still called several, killed 6.
