Hunting's Not Shopping

Want a sure thing? Go to the meat counter and pay Frank Perdue....

A good hunt good day afield is where everyone was in it. Dogs included. Everyone worked at it. Everyone saw game and had a chance or two. Everyone shot well. But most of all every one enjoyed being there outdoors and appreciating God's glorious work.

Limits are not benchmarks of goals to achieve. Neither is it bad if you do not succeed every time.

Limits are important so that everyone can have a chance - even the game. Man's top fault in the Rooster's eyes is Greed. Note: We all try at greed, that is, and it doesn't work....

In a day's hunt you should get your chance at a limit – not four or five chances. If you miss any of the first three roosters shot at even then you got your limit. Or if the birds run and the dogs bust 'em out of range. Don't look to blame the lack of a limit. Wild birds are not the same as preserve ones.

If you do get to shoot at more than three wild birds. That happens very often. What a wonderful hunt you've had. The guide can put you into position more often than should be. He cannot, however, pull the trigger.
