An interesting practice round.
« on: October 25, 2011, 07:28:47 PM »
I'm on a little bit of property SW of KC with a nice field west of the house.  It has a few trees and gets mowed in July for the Brome, great for practice play with any disc.
 
Went out a little while ago with the dog and a couple of buzzz's, beautiful evening, trees are all gold and orange, lit up by a great sunset.  Poe is a german short hair mutt with no training but tons of instinct and enthusiasm.  Wasn't long before he pops a covey of quail and I get to thinking about the two Buzzz's in my hand.  So I bring him in, keep him close as we head to the other side of the field and then let him loose, wasn't 5 minutes before he pops another one 200ft in front of me.  I let fly with the Buzzz, missed by a mile but laughed my ass off at the idea of hunting with a disc.

What's best in life?  A man with his discs, the open prairie, and his dog!

Disclaimer:  This is not inhumane, I really think if I woulda hit one it would have went down long enough for the dog to get it.  He's pretty good at this sort of thing, I think he knows that when I have quail for dinner he's gonna get some.

I know there are several weapons of choice seasons for deer (rifle, handgun (I think this is just MO), bow, ...).  I did not see the "disc" season for quail :)

LMAO!!!!

i use discs for squirrel hunting, and you really have to have an arsenal, rollers to get them on the move, i use a few putters to box them up into a small tree, stun them with a blunt midrange< gateway element>, and finish them off with my sharpest newest driver. if you can finish one off in three throws, you get a par. i have a few deuces, and only one ace ever in this sporting endeavor, it was with a 180 gram spirit at swope.

as you may have guessed, with haterfayde's utilitarian approach to most things, not so much a name as both master and hound's favorite game. some dogs like frisbees.........................................
