Went out with buddy Len. We used his Turkish O/U 28 bore, my Turkish single shot .410 bore and my Condor with
26gr. Predators.
I only had the opportunity to shoot one "ruffy" with the air rifle & it was a decent shot. Oh - we got 10 birds total
with most of them in the really thick stuff. Lucky we had the #6 shot cloud throwers.

Congratulations on a nice day out Daryl..!
Were you running dogs, or just bush-whacking..?

That looks like a serious scope on your Condor; what are you running there..?

Hopefully all the snow we got here in Southern Alberta will have knocked down the tall grass, and melted.
It will soon be prime time..!

We just went for a drive, shooting the birds on the sides of the logging roads, eating clover. Every one of them had a crop full of clover leaves.
I suspect we saw 20 all together, but only got shots at 11 or 12 - I missed a couple. What was interesting, was every one of them was a male.
The scope is an Optisan MTC Viper 6-24X30x56mm IRS Reticle. Nice scope., but slight overkill on the Condor. It worked, though.

We're hoping to get out again. I think I'll take the 12 bore Mossy with the 28" vent bl. I just changed it out last night, the rifled tube for the smoothie.
No snow here yet, but did get up to 11C yesterday. Raining again, today. Lots of rain and cool weather this summer.
