ID:	796093 Fall bird. I was doing some preseason deer scouting when I discovered where this flock of birds was crossing a creek about 11AM.
    I set up an ambush and got there at 10AM.
    Sure enough, 11AM sharp, they showed up on the far bank. They crossed the creek in singles, 2's and 3's.
    When they began to drift off, they came right by my ambush!
    BIG mistake! LOL!

    The perfect repeater. 16 gauge Winchester Model 12s are sweet guns. 16 gauge steel shot is pitiful. Winchester Mark Five 5s, 1 1/8 oz lead is a deadly duck downer.

      lab12,
      In 1988, a buddy bought a chest of drawers at a yard sale.
      He found a butt load of 16 gauge ammo in one of the drawers, would I like it?
      "Of course!"

      The next day he brings me a small, bathroom sized trash can with probably (+/-) 4 boxes of 16 gauge ammo. It was about half and half field load #8s and some Remington, Hi-Velocity, Hi-Brass #7.5's.

        The bird in the picture was shot with one of the Visitor Messages rounds.

        (Crazy! The site WILL NOT allow me to edit out "Visitor Messages"! It should read "#7.5" instead!)

        So....literally, I killed that bird with 30+ year old ammo I dug out of a garbage can! 😉
