Sorry, pictures deleted. They exceeded my photobucket bandwidth limit.

Enjoyed the photos, thanks. Coastal Carolinas? I don't know much/anything about Spanish double mfgs. other than AYA but those are some nice looking shotguns. I've got a feeling they're not all that inexpensive. At least by my standards. Good looking setter too.

Great pictures, great scenes and set up shots. Your setter looks just mine did, absolutely beautiful dog.

What camera do you use?

Dove Hunter, those pictures were taken in Florida. That gun I was calling inexpensive set me back $325 plus shipping. It feels good and fits me well enough and in a pinch it wouldn't bother me too much if I had to use it as a boat paddle.

I took my setter out last Sunday. He recently turned ten months old. He has been finding dead birds in the yard since my season opened November 1 but that was the first time he's been out to the lake hunting. I chose a place that is more open and with firmer ground than where I hunt most days. It is also a place on the main lake where I am less likely to run into a cottonmouth or gator.

JDnCO, I use a Canon SX110IS. It is the second Canon PowerShot I've owned plus a third one I got my wife. I don't know that any make is better or worse than any other but I know where the buttons are on the Canons and that is why I continued buying them after the first one. I chose that model because it has 10X zoom. I think you give up a little in picture quality with the higher zoom cameras like that one but at least you can tell what is in the long distance pictures. With a 3X or 4X zoom camera I'd have to explain that the little brown dots in the distance were deer. With that 10X camera that's no longer necessary.

$325.00, if you don't mind how long ago and what make? Looks wise from here you got your money's worth. Based on the snipe pictures it looks like it shoots pretty good too.

Thanks for the info, your pics are some of the best quality I have seen on the net in sharpness and detail. I am needing to step up a bit hence the question.

Not sure if this is your first setter, but they are a great dog breed, Molly was my best bud for 12 years. Got to know many people due to her great disposition and beauty.

Great pics of sweet times.

He is my second setter. We had our last one for over fifteen years. This was the last time he and I hunted together early in 2009. It was four days before his fourteenth birthday.

I got it in December four years ago. It was listed on Gunbroker and I was the only bidder. The maker is Jose Uriguen. It is typical 70's quality but thankfully it doesn't have the beavertail forend or white line spacers that many other 70's era Spanish guns have. It is choked IC/Full and has 26" barrels. I wouldn't mind them being two inches longer but I'm not complaining. The weight is 6 lbs, 2 oz. I'm not really sure where it shoots because I've never patterned it. It's quite possible that neither it nor I shoot straight yet somehow we manage to compensate for each other. But in all seriousness, it is a fun little gun and I don't have to baby it. I'm hunting Wednesday and we have a 50% chance of rain. That is the gun I'll take.

That is a nice post snipe hunter. I Think that we are going after them on Christmas day.

The closest I have ever been to snipe hunting is reading Charles Waterman’s yarns about it.
I regret that. It looks like a good hunt. Thanks for the hunt.

Amazing pictures as always. Just curious... What constitutes first and second half of the season in Florida?

Chucker, there are no splits or multiple phases. It runs continuously from November 1 until February 15. The season just reached the halfway point so the pictures are from the first half. I need to start a different thread for the remainder of the year.

Great pics! Looks like a great time. Is this all done on public land?
