You may have noticed that both the Winchester Ammunition Guide and the Federal Catalog list a numerical value from 1 through 4 for their rifle ammunition. This number is supposed to be a general guide to the appropriate hunting application of the various loads for centerfire rifle cartridges.

Second Dove Hunt

Posted on September 10, 2007 by Stephen

I slept better before this hunt. Again 4:00am came around early followed by fresh coffee and day-old donuts. Scott and I picked up our dad at his house at 5:00am. We met Butch and his son-in-law Oscar at a nearby Perko's. Butch took us out to a field that was ready for hunting. Dad wasn't shooting with us but he came along to watch his sons.

First Dove Hunt

Posted on September 08, 2007 by Stephen

I woke up at 4:00am after a terrible night of sleep. I was like a kid before Christmas all night. In the morning Scott and I grabbed a cup of coffee and headed over to the donut shop to get a dozen. We drove out to the vineyards to an 18 acre plot of land that he preped for Dove season. Half of the 18 acres was planted and the other half was tilled under. At 5:35am my brother's friend from work, Brian (BJ), joined us. We had coffee and donuts while waiting for sunrise.

Houseboating Weekend

Posted on September 01, 2007 by Stephen

We spent our Labor Day weekend on Phil's houseboat in Lake McClure. On the lake we saw a Trophy 2152. That really excited my wife. Now I think she is more determined than me to get a Trophy.
