You’re welcome. I hope you enjoy it. I have a Chesapeake Bay retriever that I use mostly on upland game — pheasants, grouse, woodcock, and doves, too, although she hates having to mouth a dove. I don’t hunt waterfowl more than eight or ten times a year. Until I got this bitch in 1997 I’d had yellow Labradors for years.
It’s shotguns with slugs or muzzleloaders firing a single ball, as well as handguns, for deer during the gun season here. I usually hunt with a handgun. Last year I used a .50 caliber Smith & Wesson. This year I’m going to be using S&W’s new .460-caliber revolver. Our one-week gun season doesn’t open till the Monday after Thanksgiving. Our archery season opened Oct. 2 and runs through Jan. 31. I’ve killed two does so far.
