Congrats on the good hunt,Bob.What were you using to feed your Model 42 with?

Used a Model 42 back in the mid 80s for two years.Then went back to the 28 gauge.Sold the Model 42 I had at that time.A few years ago I purchased another Model 42 in great shape.Too nice to use in the field much, like I did with the Model 42 I had before though.

Out yesterday for a short hunt.Checked out two spots,but no rabbits or partridge to be seen.

Maybe the animals are getting to know me too well,RR.See me coming and head to the high country.LOL

That was a great hunt bob. Some family and a lab. The lab is probably family too.

28 ga., I feed it 3" #6 Winchester and it seems to work.
Redryder, the lab is indeed part of the family, he was a present from my daughter,son and son in law. I was flown back to the Oak Grove area Blackman Lake actually to work with the dog before bringing him home.

That's what I used it my Model 42 Winchester,when I was using it back in the mid 1980s.

Out this late afternoon for a short hunt.not a good day for hunting,because of l the snow on the ground and trees and because of the high wind.Got nothing but cold hands and cold feet.LOL

28 gauge, you still have the rest of the year to get the Partridge and that other pesky wabbit!

Redryder, I don't know where in La. you live but the Oak Grove Blackman Lake I mentioned is in central La. This was my second time in your State and a completely different country side. First time was at Fort Polk in the pines. I actually enjoyed both "visits".

The partridge (ruffed grouse) season ended at the end of December.Skunked this year.

On about Dec.27 I hurt my left ankle,knee and the area in between them.Also the left foot is a bit swollen.Doctor says I could be 3 to 6 weeks before recovery.So it looks like I am out of the woods for awhile.:(

Too bad ,as we have had some nice days to have been out here of late.:(
