I remember pheasant hunting with a party of WW2 vets in South Dakota many years ago. A younger man who was one of the grandsons came with and he had a 20 ga topper. He was a very good shot and had 2 birds on the first drive. He apparently slipped in the mud and plugged his barrel before our second drive. First shot he took afterwards split the end of his barrel like a banana peel. Nobody hurt, we all laughed and later we went back to the farm house and cut the end off. Then he tried to pattern the barrel by shooting an old washing machine sitting in the weeds. I remember it was a terrible open pattern and several feet sideways from where he aimed. He continued to hunt with us but he didn't hit any more birds that day.
All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.
