Well the second definitely bothers me, but not nearly as much as if it were a game gun.

Now if you can't tell the difference between this:

and this:


I'll try to help.
The first shows a variety of distinct species all collected in a single day. More birds were taken than just those pictured but these examples were used for the composition.
The second is a "bag" pic. It's all about the number. It's all the same bird. The only difference between a shot of one or six is the number. It's about limits and how you measure success.
It also looks like a mass grave for executed prisoners.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's cool you're getting out and you certainly seem to have the love.
But I'm guessing you've got more style and taste than your pics are showing.

Is it me or does this sound like a back-hand compliment?

A good percentage of the pheasant and quail available in South Georgia these days are pen-raised. No complaints here, just fact of life that what used to be over-populated with wild birds is now nearly empty. We did come across a covey or two of wild quail on Sunday but let them be.

The shooting plantations down here are season release places meaning they cultivate pen-raised birds and begin staggered release programs each year to populate the fields. I assume they do the same in the mid-West and CA. Make for interesting late season shooting.

Now all we need is a fishing thread...

It's not.

I'm really happy to see that Ryan is a hunter and that he's sharing his experience on this board.

But if you hunt you know that there's a pretty big disparity between the lowest common denominator and the sportsmen.

I'm just encouraging Ryan to be the sportsman he likely is and shun the less desirable practices of the more basic hunter like body count pics.

Well, we actually took 15 birds that day (12 pheasant and 3 chukar). This shot was taken just before lunch, when my friend and I were comparing the birds that we took in the morning with wild ones shot in the past. Next time I'll arrange them to look like an Orvis catalog cover-shot...

As if you didn't?

Please tell me that those are just "snapshots" of the normal course of your hunting outings.
Please, that would be hilarious.

So you always lay your Beretta on a bed of pheasants?
And you always string a couple of birds up on the porch?
Somehow I think not.
I'm guessing you purposely composed those pics and now your dismissing my encouragment with your cover-shot comment trying to imply that your pics were accidental and without premeditation.

Where I have I said anywhere that I didn't? I'm just not as good at photography, nor did I take the time to overly compose my pictures.

The day you see me, or hear of me, shooting birds on the ground, using recorded game calls, dressed head-to-toe in scentlock camo, hunting from a blind overlooking a feeder, shooting over my limit, and peppering every dog in the field; Then you can accuse me of not being a "sportsman".

I have already shot more birds and big game while growing up than most people will in their lifetime, and I have always shot on the wing and stalked my game.

Having properly composed pictures and owning the entire Barbor catalog does not make the sportsman, actions in the field do.
-This is my last word on the matter!

(btw, the porch shot wasn't staged, I remembered when I got home that I had not taken any pictures of the chukar that day. I was too busy hunting...)

So I'm guessing Barbour is faux and elitist but paying money to shoot pen-raised birds isn't?
