    Default Bob's 10th Birthday ptarmagin hunt pic's.

    Bob wanted to hunt ptarmagin on his 10th birthday, so we traveled via snow machine to Sheep Valley, about 15 miles from the lodge. We found a nice group and he pulled up his .410 pump... one shot, one bird... two shots, two birds, 3 shots, three birds, 4 shots, 4 birds, and 5 shots, 5 birds. Was like watching a shooting clinic. He enjoyed the day!

    Thanks Bear! It was a proud moment for me, for sure. He just knocked them down easily. They were out about 80 to 100 feet.

    Sounds like Bob's already a better shot than I am -- way to go!

    I know that Bob offers trapline tours, but perhaps in the future he needs to offer shooting lessons for a reasonable fee. Five birds with five shots? Heck, I'd sign up for the lesson!

    We were using 7-1/2, I believe. I have years of shells laying around, so we just grab whatever we find first. I'd suggest 6 to 7.

    Congrats to Bob, and good on you for getting him out there! My son is a crack shot with his .410 as well. I actually think it's better for upland game than my 12 gauge.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.
