Default Wandering with an EH 10...

I didn't hunt a lot locally with the EH 10 ga., just a few sage grouse hunts and one goose. I did however burn up a box or so of shells in North Dakota and really enjoyed that. I can see this becoming more regular as I sort out favorite loadings.

There is a unique sort of pleasure that comes from being alone with a quality gun of a grand era long past, and a devoted dog, in search of whatever joys lay between the truck and the horizon. At day's end, sweat in the small of my back tells me that those joys were justly earned and reminds me of yet another reason I do it. I invite you all to come along on a little photographic journey with the EH.

Beautiful gun and beautiful country!

Is that a Nova Scotia Tolling Dog?

Dean, Rusty gets mistaken for a Toller, and there is good reason for it since sable coat Border Collies like him were part of the original blend that produced the Nova Scotia Toller breed. He's been an indispensable partner for 7 seasons now.

Craig, the straight grip isn't original, but I buy "shooters" that may or may not have already been altered and then if need be, tailor them to my needs/ desires. The guns I can afford are never collector condition guns, and sometimes are even in need of repair. I usually hunt 100+ days each year (the reason I can't afford a pristine Parker!). That's a lot of time spent carrying a gun, I really appreciate a great gun in my hands during those hours.

Understood and by no means are mine ďpristineĒ . But Iíd still like to get an EH that left the factory with a straight grip . Since Iím looking for a factory original 26Ē EH it would be great if I found a 26Ē that was straight gripped as well

For those who don't know, Garhart, he is also one of my favorite contemporary outdoor journalists. You can read his stories in Shooting Sportsman, Fur-Fish-Game, and other outdoor periodicals, and on the Upland Journal podcasts. Some of my favorites were his posts on the 16 Ga. Forums on his cross-country road trips for pheasant in Kansas, and his Himalayan Snowcock hunt. He always posts beautiful photos. Rusty is an admirable bird dog (ask Edgar Spencer about the intelligence of Border Collies), who could hold his own against most bird dogs. He gravitates toward the classic vintage doubles we all hold dear, esp 16 ga guns such as his Lefever Durstan Special 16.
Hope to see you as a regular on the PGCA Forums.
