I grew up shooting them and when I first went pheasant hunting would be on them at about the 4th wingbeat and shot way too close. My reflexes have slowed down so I am not as good of a wing shooter as I used to be but still have an O/U 28 ga for them. Used to have a SXS but it was a worked over Stoeger and someone else wanted it pretty bad. When I had dogs I preferred not to ground shoot. Used to think that the best way to hunt one was to bust brush wear orange and carry a bolt action shotgun so they would think I was deer hunting. Miss that type of hunting. About the best thing that can be done for them locally is follow logging operations as they like growing aspen stands.Didn't take long, not bad for 70 year old eyes. Hunted them a lot when I was younger - learned to mount the shotgun and shoot in one fluid motion, the window of opportunity is very short!!!
