Congratulations, Dedbird! That is a wonderful milestone to achieve! One that I have not quite gotten....24 is my best so far. But, it is achievable but shooting "low gun" doesn't make it any easier. I have several nice DeHaans and they all shoot fine for me but I usually make a mental error (like not taking the safety off...) of some sort! Congrats again!

Hey, 2few you should have seen "BPGuy" on the pheasant hunt last January! He is deadly! He may have missed one somewhere along the way, but I sure didn't see it! AND, he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time, too. I, on the other hand was so excited that I missed the first few birds - two were long, high in the sky in heavy wind (tough shots, really, but I should have dropped them) but one was a rediculously easy 20 yard crosser.....I was so embarrassed! I managed to get my birds, though by the end of the day's hunt. However, the next day I made up for it! I did pretty well, finishing up with a nice crossing left/right double! And both were 'grounded' dead birds, too. I felt much better after that! I definitely need to do this more often! Going again in mid-January 2010. That is pretty much one of the things I dislike about South Texas: HOT, no wild pheasants, no public land and no Ruffed Grouse! So, what do I like about Texas? Lots of things: My wife is a Texan and it is pretty much true that Texans are only happy in Texas and you know the old adage about "momma being happy..." and a decent job, close to the beach, too. I like to fish, too...
