I mis-spoke. This is not my first bird ever. It is the first of this year. And it is my first bearded bird ever. Last year I got a hen in the Fall season. I wish my first bearded bird was a monster Tom but I got busted by the Tom a bit before i shot the jake. Thats why they call it hunting and not killing. And to answer your question Orange foot, That is my trusty winchester 120. It is not a fancy gun or have all the bells and whistles, but It gets the job done. I dont have a coronary averytime i drop and scratch it. And the best part is I only payed $200 for it 8 years ago. I kill as many ducks with it as my friends do with their expensive guns. This gun has been used as a paddle, a prop, a crutch. I have dropped her into mud, down a few steep hills, and she still fires like a new gun. Her name is Monique. Yes i named my gun...,..
Shoot 'em in the face.
