Last two weeks have gone by in a blur. I've spent a long weekend Dove Hunting in Carrizo Spring, TX. This was my first experience with a shotgun and hunting. I have a black and blue bruise on my right shoulder to prove it. It was not a very economical endeavor for me. First day out, I spent 200 shells to kill 7 Doves. I was dissapointed since I was able to hit about 50% of the clay pigeons on a prior skeet shooting outing. Perhaps I'm now blacklisted by the PETA movement. Still, it was worth it. This has got to be the most stress relieving experience I have so far enjoyed in my 40 years of existence. There is nothing like the booming sound of a shotgun.
