2007 Shriner's Continental Shoot

November 3, 2007

We were invited back again this year to help throw pheasants out for the Shriner's Contenental Shoot at Winema Lodge in Tulelake, California.  Last year we were on the opposite side of the canyon and we threw both chukkars and pheasants out.  This year, the Herman's built us an impenetrable fortress so we didn't get shot in the ass like last year....OUCH!

We would like to thank the Herman family for their hospitality.  Tyler and Kaleigh got an opportunity to get more pheasant hunting in than they've ever had in their lives.  Grandma Herman can cook, too!!

This hen wasn't leaving the fort....huh uh!!

It's been so long since we saw bucks down where I live, I had to
take these shots.  These bucks let us walk within 15 - 20 yards of them.

This four point was looking to kick the three point's ass...

So he did
