    Move back to Alabama!

    Serious advice. Running to the gun is simply a crutch. Dogs do this because it is easier. Running to the gun then turning left or right requires little effort. ...

    As in many things, that doesn't tell the whole story. Lilly was way in front on both no birds & probably didn't see the retired pheasant flyer. Sat like a rock on the rerun & did a very nice job!...

    My personal opinion is that the rules do not require me to put my cheek on the stock & aim down the broomstick. As long as the rules state "shoulder the gun", that is what I will do. Failing...
