    (0) AJA ON WOODCOCK

    A memorable day in the field... as my old girl work diligently, to find me birds. I always wonder when it will be the last time. At any rate, choosing the challenge of gunning with the Vintage Charles Daly .410,... there was a lot more shooting , than harvesting. But that's ok!
