      WELCOME NEW UJ MEMBERS   06/25/2017

      It seems the word is out and UJ is enjoying a steady stream of newly Registered Members. Welcome to all of you, and we are all looking forward to your positive participation. I strongly suggest you review the Board Guidelines that have been in place since 2002. The most significant thing being that UJ is a NO POLITICS BOARD. LInk:  UJ BOARD GUIDELINES   Also UJ stays afloat mainly through Member Donations. Once a Donation is made you are placed in the Contributing Member Group with extra Priviliges. I am getting very few new Donations so hopefully this will spur that on a bit. Link:  New Members/Donations/Priviliges

2017 Hunting Season Photos - Let's See Them

Recommended Posts

gjw

Hi all, thought I'd start this so we can all post photos of our 2017 season.  Include guns, game, dogs, friends etc. So let's see some of those great photos you all take so well!

 

I'll start it off with my after work hunt today.  Went out solo, a bit windy, only saw 3. 2 of them were wild, but the 3rd one is in the bag.

 

I was using my 16ga Carl Goluch today

Hope to see your pics soon.

 

Best,

 

Greg

Finally it all came together! The dog started pointing, and I got the bend out of the gun barrel. 😉

I think Milrob started a 2017 guns and birds thread over in the Firearms Forum (always one of my favorite annual threads), however, I agree that it's certainly time for a 2017 hunting photo thread.  Here are a few from September (yeah, its only doves, but that's all that is open so far here).

 

Joy pointing a dove that actually held for a point - VERY rare - musta been asleep or something:

Some birds coming into the flowers and sorghum:

My elderly buddy, The Chaser, making a retrieve in the rain.  It's been mostly too hot to take him out.

By the big lake - just beginning to see some color:

Found the ruins of an 18th century farmstead - can't help but wonder what the people who first cleared this land and built their hopes and dreams in this spot experienced in their lifetimes:

Joy watching for incomers on a hot day:

Hey all, sorry, I didn't know that Milrob also started a thread like this.  Seems like we don't need both, so why don't we just post on his thread.  No sense in jumping back and forth.

 

Best,

 

Greg

I think we should continue this thread for general hunting pics - it's always a popular thread each year.  The more specialized guns 'n birds pics can go on Milrob's thread.

Yes please keep it going. As Greg's pictures show there is a lot more to it than birds and guns.

Hey all, went out today solo after our Annual Church Dinner/Fair.  Decided to hit one of my good spots.  Didn't see any grouse today, but Raina pointed a couple of nice roosters.  Flushed up some Huns and managed one from that covey.  Flushed up another covey and managed a double for a limit. I felt like Ben O. Williams!  

 

I used my 16ga FN
