here are very few things as romantic as upland bird hunting. Leather and waxed canvas. Spaniels and pointers. Double guns and whatever double guns go with – I guess they’re already a pair. While I have not hunted much upland game, I’ve cherished the experiences I have had, and look forward to the next outing! Anyone got a spare seat in their truck?
