This little pistol is great. I had a great day with the dog. She was full of enthusiasm but short on brains today. These were the first birds she has seen since september, and she forgot alot of her manners. I seen about 30 today and I feel lucky I was able to get 5 with my pistol. I probably could have got all of them with a shotgun, and at least 15 if I had my hummer. It is very Hard hunting these. They are found in alpine areas and usually require extensive stomping around with snowshoes in the deep snow. When you find them your heart rate is racing, and you must calm down enough to get a steady shot in time. Very challenging with a pistol. Sorry about the gory looking picture. Theyre white feathers really soak up the blood after they sit in your pack for 5 miles. They will be good eating for me tonight!
