Opening day in Lamar County!


Senior Member
We had our annual gathering at my friend's little farm and he decided to stick with our opening day tradition of afternoon shoot and dinner afterwards.
He puts a lot of work in his field and this year he decided on sunflowers. It was expensive and a ton of work keeping the deer away. He had electric fence to keep the deer out.
It was not a barn burner but enough birds to keep shooting. We had four adults and a kid on his first shoot.
It took from 3 to 7 pm but we had two limits, one just a bird or two shy. I am a terrible wing shooter and got 7 and the 4th grader shooting a 28 gauge semi auto killed his first two ever.
We would have a flurry of three or four birds and then a dead spell and then single after single.

We did help the ammo manufacturers stay profitable.
