First P-dogs of the year Central Nebraska

I was up with my Daughter at 4:00am this past Sunday, and the temp was 17F. By 1:00pm is was 70F, sunny, and calm. Shot for about 4 hours, the wind never gusted over 5mph. It was as perfect as a day gets in Nebraska. Only shot a couple of new pups, all the rest I shot were adults. The pups should be out in a couple more weeks. The pic is of a retro Colt Delta HBAR that I just completed. This dog was shot at 198 yards. I had a radio with me so I could listen to the tournament games. It was an awesome day.

    Nice shooting and nice rig. 17 to 70, quiet the temperature swing. Hey what do yall use for shade out there when it's in the 90's, I guess there's not too much need for a brush gun out there.

    Thanks, normally the weather is crazy, this year our winter has been downright rediculous to predict. The half section I was hunting has 4 trees on it. No shortage of long shot opportunities
