    Speaking of familytraditions and bird hunting- one beautiful Septermber day, several years ago- opening day for doves- cut over corn field- with a cookout planned for after the hunt- in the same field, all hunting doves- my grandad, dad, self, son, and my grandson. 5 generations of us got some birds that day- and all of us have the same middle name.

    Grandad and Dad are gone now, but we did have one hunt together.

    That is awesome C3! I wish more of my family was active in shooting / hunting while 'everyone' was still around. I am lucky enough to have been a part of some 4 generation pictures that I value very much.

    I don't mind Eurasians too much. They taste about the same.

    Family hunts, my father and I have been traveling west for the last 20 years, and yes it is a tradition. Hunting in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Montana. Some year's making two trips, and a couple we made three trips west. We plan all year for a hunt. Raising our on hunting dogs for the last 40 years, also a family tradition. This year, it's South Dakota!

    I'm not much of an upland game guy but my dad and I are avid avid waterfowlers. Been with him every opening morning for 17 years of hunting and before that wheb I couldn't hunt. Not to mention the rest of the season we spend together in the marsh. Once you have mud in your blood you can't stop. I feel very lucky and grateful I get to spend so much time with my dad. I know when he is gone i will be able to look back and say I made the most of the time we had together.
