Sweet, one of my good buddies, capt at Va beach is Rainbow(alton Whitehurst) who guides down that way. We hunted with him on New Years eve. Great guy and a awesome guide. You might know him. We saw a few snows behind the cotton gin in that field when we where on our way home that afternoon. If things work that would be awesome. Maybe we could work a swap hunt. (dove, deer, spring gobbler, waterfowl)

Alton Is a good guy. Not a bad guide either. Like I said before I have to check with the guys I hunt with. I can't promise anything. These guys are all locals whom I've known my whole life and they can be pretty particular. Big Shorty knows don't you son......

BS the 9 others I was talking about was vah2ofowler22 , cut_un , Featherbuster and you plus a few others from this forum :smile: . But now that I know that he is talking NC hunting I am out , I'm not going to buy a out of state hunting license to hunt a bird that I may or may not get under . But to answer your question , no I was just asking if I could join him on a hunt :umm: :eek: .

Thats cool, if you can get me in great if not thats cool. I am almost positive that my season is gonna have to end soon even tho i dont want it to. 17 quail hunitng and 18 pheasant hunting old english style. Still have a few spots for anyone looking to shoot pheasants

I see a few mixed in with the Cgeese but there is no way that I can get a shot on them and not take a out of season bird . Other then a crow or 20 my season is over for this year around here , now if you want to take me after some birds your way all I need is a day or two notice .

Yea both are birds. The tower shoot for Pheasants is gonna run $200 but thats for 200 pheasants and a meal. Plus bird cleaning. Its a great time. II have shot in 5 or 6 tower shoots and it is a great way to enhance your shooting skills. You mean to tell me you have never shot quail???? they are a little bigger than a dove, and you hunt them with pointers. fast birds. Awesome time and fun to shoot. If we had a better quail population here i would rather do that than duck hunt. Not sure that it can beat goose hunting tho.

I am looking forward to OCT i want to chase those seas ducks again :getdown:

Sweathog - My shoulder still hurts. I will never shoot 3 1/2" inch shells again. My 3" reloads worked just fine, thank you. And, I think I broke my dehydrator making jerky.



Lewdog - Thanks and all, but I would rather you not imply my involvement in that sort of thing. As a rule, I do not ask people to take me hunting - it's just a thing with me. I always try to bring "smoething to the party" if I am being invited, normally returning the favor if I can via a swap hunt where I take them. It's just how I do things. As for guided hunts, I am particular about who I hunt with, and what service I utilize (as Sweathog will attest). Again, I am very particular about who I hunt with and under what conditions. So, thanks for the kind thoughts and all, but no thanks. (don't take this post wrong - It's all good :thumbsup: ...just saying how I see it)

As for quail - if you can find a good covey, it is great hunting. The real key though, is excellent dog work. I have fopund quail hunting the hardest bird hunting I have ever experienced. (Although, timberdoodles are quite the challenge as well)

I have been on tower shotos for phesant and chukar, and it is fun shooting. If you have never done it - think of a randon skeet range, only with live flying birds (pen raised of course). I always enjoyed the social aspects of the tower shoot, more than the shooting per se. It was always great to kid each other about the shooting prowess of others......until it was your turn. :laughing: Good luck guys, and I hope you have a great time.
