Well, went to yantis
700 release pheasants towershoot.
20 guys
Shot 78.
Amazing day.
Put some 3 inch and 2 3/4 to the test, and let me tell you: i am DONE with 3 inch.
Patternmaster with cheap 2 3/4 herters are awesome.

Anyway, one 11 yr old kid was eyeballing my metrogun today.
After asking permission from his dad, he took my metro and shot 12 pheasants with 15 shots.
I was impressed, and called me yes sir, thank you sir all day.
THAT made my day!
Wake up at 6 am tomorrow and 460 release bird at greystone.

Release birds? Does that mean they raise them and turn them loose for you to shoot at?

How do the anti HF people feel about that? roflmao

Actually watched it this evening for the first time with Marcus Spears lil hunting show "best of" episode. Seems kinda like skeet shooting, only you can eat the birds afterwards!

PULL! Dinner time!

I hunted them up in the Panhandle like this a few years ago. It's not like the birds are trapped and can't leave the area. Folks have been hunting areas with released quail for decades. This is no different.

They throw them from a tower at shoot them. It's not my cup of tea, but I don't object to others who do it.

Well at least he called it a shoot, and not a hunt.

I'm not a bird hunter and didn't know that they did stuff like that. Do they release them once at a time? If so isn't it like shooting clays?

I'm not saying it's bad btw, just curious.

Do you pay for all the birds released or just those killed ?
