Nope you are right on the money. His dad went to take his pic and I said wait, he has to hold a gun. Then I saw him do that and corrected him
but after the pic was taken.
That bird was taken from our back yard behind the barn or what used to be the barn. The local farmer had just made his 2nd cutting yesterday afternoon so all the fields are now down to stubble. We do have an area where we had set decoys. But it seems like every night we are on their flight path from 1 area to their bedding spot for the night. Sometimes they come over our fields a little too low and this is the result.
These birds would not land in our set in the evening. The only way we get them to think about landing is in the morning. But everything is so green right now, it is hard to get them to think about coming in. But we have tried twice so far with no luck.
So we will set up behind the old machinery pile again tonight right before dusk and hope for some more low fliers.
And yeah, that is one hell of a grin. He was so excited last night. First time he was with us when we got one. Funny part was when it hit the ground the 1 wing was still twitching and he hollers to his dad " Bullets, Dad we need more bullets !!!! He's still moving !!!!!!! "
