Great dove hunting this weekend. Season opened here this weekend. That is really fast food. Lots of birds - the guys who I shoot with did a great job of setting up the fields. I've had to miss the opening weekend for the last several years as family obligations required a trip to the lake. Not this year. Shooting was good on both Saturday and Sunday. Limits both days. Birds in the freezer for some time in the fall when we can have a great dove cook-off contest. Only hickup was with the Beretta 12 ga. autoloader. The pin that holds the trigger group in the gun dropped out. The trigger group got loose and wanted to slip out also - causing a misalignment in the feeding mechanism. I wasn't hitting very well with it anyway. Put the little Beretta 20 ga. O/U into service. Only two shots with a lot fewer pellets in the load. Should have been a pretty big handicap - got more birds with fewer misses using it though. Hope I can do as well with it later this afternoon. Remember guys - if you want to eat, you have to kill.
