With Summer’s end comes the time of year we all wait for: Hunting season. Many have already filled deer, elk and antelope tags and doves have been in the crosshairs for nearly a month. All of those are still available somewhere in this great country of ours and now to that seasonal smorgasbord we can add a truckload of other critters – big and small, flighted or furry – and happily carry on for the next three or four months. Every huntable game is available somewhere, sometime and there’s nothing more to complain about, at least until the end of January, depending on where you live or hunt.
Possibly the greatest bonanza comes with feathers. Quail, grouse, pheasants, ducks and geese are all part of the party and there are lots of others that spring memories of past hunts. To honor this part of our hunting season we’re looking to just sit back, relax with your “double trouble,” be it in 12, 16, 20, 410 or a couple of other gauge favorites, and make sure you’re all packed for action. To help, here’s a dose of what’s to come from…
