Oliver Mort Pigeon Shooting Late September

When I arrived at the fields the trees just exploded with pigeons, so I had a feeling it was going to be a great day. The wind was very strong and I only had one option on where to put the hide and unfortunately it meant the wind was in my face. This made for great shooting as some of the birds were shot going over my head with the wind. At times the wind was so strong that it was difficult to keep the hide up. The most action came after lunch when the pigeons just starting decoying much better.

This was my first ever solo red letter day on pigeons and I packed up as soon as I reached the milestone. I probably could have stayed on another couple of hours & got another 20 or 30, but I had enough fun by that stage. Thanks for watching, make sure & stay tuned to the end for the bloopers section!!!

  It seems no matter where you go, whenever you get a few "gun guys" together, the question always comes up,"If you could only have one gun, what would it be and why?" It's inevitable, like running out of ammo. I guess the Internet is no different.

  My pat answer to this age-old question has always been the good old 12 Ga. shotgun. In any configuration it is a formidable weapon, but I prefer pump action or double barrels.  Auto loaders are too finicky in my opinion and single shots are, well, single shot. I LOVE single shot firearms for sporting, but for the "one gun" scenario, it's not preferable.

  Why the 12Ga.?
