Pheasant hunting in CT anyone interested?
« on: October 06, 2019, 09:33:02 AM »
a couple times a year I meet up with friends or old co workers at a preserve in CT to hunt some pheasants I have always used modern shotguns at this place,, most of us like it cause its private and we don't see other hunters in our areas and for all the out of state guys who I meet there no license needed. 

so while there I got to thinking,,,, I wonder if any smoke pole fans would be interested in a pheasant rendezvous or simple meet up there using black powder smoothbores only 

anyone interested LMK

sorry for late reply,   well haven't really set a date yet but its in Danielson off Rt 6 west from RI.   I'd kinda like to go before mid December because I've hunted them in all weather but those frigid single digit temps was brutal and Id rather be after deer.   

I'm headed to a local spot this Friday with a friends pointer so hoping I can post a pic up soon.
