    New Over Under

    I just bought a Savage 555 over/under. I know there are plenty of better and more expensive guns in the over under category, but this is best IMO of the over unders in my budget. I plan to shoot a few rounds of skeet next weekend. I will post a review of the gun afterwards.

    I've been shooting trap and skeet for about 4 years now with a semi auto. Always wanted an u/o. I haven't bird hunted ever but I might give it a try in a few weeks. I have no idea what I am doing, but there's no time like now to start learning

    This is true about the learning part but make sure you have your phez/quail stamp if you go on state stocked lands and also there is a stocking schedule on the f&g website and also in the compendium.or you can go to a preserve,they have all kinds of stocking/price choices and dogs/handlers.

    I will def get the pheasant stamp. My plan is to hit Medford wma and walk the brush hoping to kick up some birds.

    Now that you mention it... I was walking out from my stand last Saturday and saw a guy about 10 feet from the safety zone knock down a pheasant roosting 25 feet up in a tree. I was surprised to see that as I thought pheasants typically hide in the thicker ground cover. Thanks for the tip.

    went to medford a few times and watched a few birds fly over the road to the backside of johnsons farm market,never to be seen again.LOL! I would always get a few quail that flew in from the setter club next door also,of course that's when the season was statewide.
