Bird Hunting

Any BARFers into bird hunting? I'm pretty excited for this year since Gomer is all finished with his formal training. I have a soft lead on some private land (need to confirm formal permission) for dove, and will likely sample the various NorCal clubs for pheasant. I've also got a few spots with good mountain quail prospects, as long as they don't burn down this summer.

Well? D'ya hunt? Wanna see if we can get together and run our dogs together?

Just a reminder for all the gun users out there. It is very dry so watch where you shoot especially using steel shot. A 22 sparked a fire up near our property yesterday.

I usually go hunt ducks in Don Edwards refuge. Weird to be sitting in a blind shooting at ducks and see Google's campus in the background.

We just joined at Camanche, so that's where I'll be spending a lot of time. Still need to figure out the ins and outs of duck hunting. I know nothing about it or where to start.

Only amateurs use guns to hunt birds....I combine motorcycles and riding and have a kill count of 5 or 6...and counting. Two off the body and the rest the bike did the work...Oh, and a couple of squirrels, if they even count..
The biggest was a vulture with a wing span of a good 5-6'.

Took down a kamakazi pheasant by hand once

I have not gone in while but pheasant was always my fav. Too lazy to go into the cold duck blind (did it a 100 times)
But always enjoyed quail but a lot of work to clean for a small meal.

I have a great tale of hunting pheasant and a bud who ended up looking like Sachmo if you want to hear it. I sure miss my hunting dog (kakui) and also my grandma that hunted with me when I was a kid.

Dad shot his bro by accident. Another story.

My browning 12 needs a little warm up.

Me too. Barefooting in the Delta in a long ago November next to one of the island bird reserves... saw a winged one hit the water. Swam over and rung his neck. Ate him hours later, a Good Day that was.

Here's Gomer and his cousin Dakota in their first day hunting together. Gomer pouted all the way to the club and I think he was bummed we brought her along on what's been until then an all bros activity.

Dakota is still a spaz and learning to work two dogs in the field is quite a challenge. I could tell Gomer would get annoyed when he was working and she would just charge into him instead of looking for birds. But they did great flushing birds. Most we let fly as they either flew low right at another person or stayed low with the dogs chasing them.

Either way, it was a good day. Can't wait to go back

This is Gomer last weekend with my little sister. He sure loves finding and flushing those birds. He blew me away that day. I thought I missed a bird because it kept flying, but Gomer took off after it. All my whistling and calling didn't matter, he went over a hill and I lost track of him. So I started walking, still whistling, and then here he comes a minute later with the bird in his mouth! We talked to a guy later who saw the whole thing and he said Gomer never took his eye off the bird. Was about a 3/8 mile retrieve!
