well, the kickoff for hunting season is right around the corner. for us here it means wearing out the collared doves so we can start mourning and whitewing off like pros! (by that i mean we will amass enough crap we don't need by opening day by starting on the nongame now.) i was just curious how everyone gets ready for it, like dog training, clays, etc. i had to put my bird dog down so this year will be a little different, but i am going to give it my all anyway. good luck to everybody.
