    The "Brittany" tent is a very large one. I've had Britts from both ends of the gun dog portion: an inherently close working so-called "grouse bred" one and one of AKC All Age trial breeding with...

    Often wondered about that, particularly if you broadcast the food with a casting motion to acclimate the birds to it. But it's tough enough for most folk to throw anything but "bananas" with a good...

    I found the current Lares the least back pressure critical of the couple dozen speck calls I've run and very true to the birds' tone, so it's a slick little call that should be easy to learn on, but...

    His grandson now works with him and could be sanding reeds, but they, like most "Chien Caille" users I've known, have caught onto mylar of the thickness Haydel uses for the top DR-85 reed. Know...

    I've run most of what's out there, including Redbone's single and double reeds, and I don't believe you'll beat Riceland, either for tone or ease of use. And their $65 poly is the best speck call...

    I've only had Cabela's and Avery vests and prefer the Cabela's. Also find their Armor-flex(?) a well worthwhile feature.

    It's my understanding that the survey that led to that season change will be repeated this year. Know I'll again ask for what had been our traditional Coastal Zone framework.

    Hope no one comes here (Doug's) expecting to kill blues and snows, that's a fluke only ideal weather has provided for the past decade or so. Ours has been a pretty good duck and fair speck season,...

    I leave the white side as is, as I want lots of flash for teal. I've been convinced by pretty much side by side experience that the full sized Mojo outdraws the Baby, Teal and Dove versions.
