Re: shooting bags

I have a large area that I have to mow, about 22 acres. My primary mower is a 30 horsepower Kubota with a 6' under carriage mower deck. We also have a small zero clearance mower that we use for trim work around trees and such. During the summer we keep the zero clearance mower in the garage for quick access. The wife keeps the area around the house pretty well manicured during mowing season with the small mower and I do the large area with the Kubota.

One range day I came back and unloaded the vehicle and set some stuff on the small mower. The wife got the urge to mow and moved some stuff off the mower but before I knew what was going on she backed the mower out with my shooting bag still on the gas tank. Both are black and she just didn't see it. She was not aware that it was there and it fell off the first time she backed up the mower while doing the trim work and the bag was history. If anyone needs a testimony for bag vs mower durability I can tell you the mower wins hands down.

Here's a couple of pics of the property. I'm in Upstate NY. My wife took the picture of the bruiser in the apple orchard about 200 yards from the house. That's me on the old John Deere tractor.

Re: shooting bags

I also use a DogGone Good bag. I like mine very much. My only complaint is that I'm not that keen on it with a narrow hunting style forend. Then I think the Bulls type design that some of my friends use may be preferable. I suggest you try both if friends have them.

The DGG is really well made. Nice people to deal with.
