Today was a little different than in years past. Instead of breaking out my Remington 1187 to chose to use an old single shot SUPER DREADNOUGHT shotgun that belonged to one of my great grandfathers, whom I never met. It was given to me by the family of one of my late cousins who past away earlier this year. After a safety inspection and a few test rounds we were off to the races. I managed 14 mourning doves and 9 collard doves and a sore shoulder to prove it. I may never hunt with this gun again but I felt it need one last hoorah before I put it away to be passed down to my son one day.

My boy had not been feeling well and the heat didn't help but he managed a little trigger time. I watched as he got two collard doves in the air with one shot. He was pretty pumped.
