    Default Another Ptarmigan Climb

    Rigby and I climbed the mountain again and really had a ball. We backpacked into a spot I have been interested in. We got a late start on a Friday evening and got in tired hungry and crashed. Got up the next morning and had a ball chasing ptarmigan up and down the mountain.

    Is that a side-by-side . . . ?

    I still shoot, from time to time, my 16 gauge, Field Grade L. C. Smith . . .

    I sure like that gun. It is small and weighs in at just under 7lds.
    One of these days I'm going to find the 16 of my dreams. That LC Smith is a classic. I liked your model 12 you posted a few weeks ago. I grew up shooting a Model 12. I'll look for a post from you posing with some bird with the LC!

    I hear (haven't personally been yet) that Birchwood has an relatively nice Skeet/Trap range.

    Be careful about using the Rabbit Creek range, however. I HAVE been to that one.) They're on a game refuge, so you are required to shoot steel (or some other non tox load) at their facility. I mention this because people are talking aobut Model 12's and LC Smiths, and those guns can't shoot steel. So just bear that in mind as you plan your trips to the range.

    Looks like you had a great time!
    I love hunting with a 20 Guage! I flew down to Oregon to get my bird dog this week and will be driving back up Monday. Can't wait to put Ace on some Alaskan birds

    He's a English pointer and a seasoned one at that.

    Rigby looks to be in control, "....5-6-7-8-9 yup, nine down and all accounted for....all is well."
